A Must Read for the Mindful Parent"
, December 7, 2011
"Building Resilience in Children and Teens : Giving Kids Roots and Wings" is a must read for the mindful parent. Dr. Ginsburg, the antithesis of the Tiger Mom, encourages parents to raise future, healthy 35 year olds rather than focusing on the short term goals of a high school graduate.
Intelligent, candid and poignant, Dr. Ginsburg delivers his 7 crucial C's of resilience in a comprehensive manner and provides practical guidance in all areas of wellness. He delightfully incorporates stories from his experiences making the text extremely engaging. The combination of his medical background, parental role and professorial delivery makes him a credible advocate for children and adolescents.
In addition to being an excellent parent resource, this book is a fantastic book club selection, guide for educators, or a basic reminder of what is important in life. As a mother of four children, ages 6-15, and an educator, I highly recommend this book to all.
