This review is from: The Enneagram of Parenting: The 9 Types of Children and How to Raise Them Successfully (Paperback)
I am a psychiatrist, but all of us who are trying to be good parents tend to try to treat our children like we wish we had been treated: in my case I have a natural tendency to try to provide my children with as many stimulating opportunities as possible. But I am a 7 in the Enneagram system and my children are not! So it is a constant reminder for me that my little 9 daughter would rather cuddle than go to theme parks, while my little 8 daughter wants more and more action! Elizaeth has written a fabulous, concise, book reminding us of the interactions between parents of one type and children of another. A book that is both essential and ahead of its time.
