Thank GOD for this book! With Andrea (and Harry) guiding me, I've been able to learn new ways of "training" my kids, and raising them to be responsible adults. It's only been a few months since I got the book, but I already see a difference in my 5 year old - and I'm more prepared to interact responsibly with my teenager when he comes home on home visits. He'll be graduating soon, and I am a more confident parent than I was 2 years ago, that's for sure.
Whether or not you're struggling with difficult children, "What Kids Need To Succeed" is a must-read book for every parent. Read it before you need it for best success.
It's different from most books on parenting because the authors started by interviewing generals, CEO's, mega-best-selling authors and the All-Stars, asking them to look back on childhood and the lessons that made them high achievers as adults.
In so doing they found the same four themes running through all the great success stories, and these became the `4 Foundations of Adult Achievement.'
One of my favorite gems of the book is the discussion about what Harry S. Patten (creator of the $100 million a year Patten Corporation, the USA's largest buyer and seller of recreational land) calls "the competitive advantage of growing up poor."
If you're looking for guidance on how to give your child the tools to be the best human being possible, Andrea and Harry S. Patten's `What Kids Need to Succeed: 4 Foundations of Adult Achievement' is a great choice!
It's clear that both Andrea and Harry have a great deal of wisdom to share. When I read this book, I said to Andrea, "It's a great book, and I want to meet your father."
It's my new favorite gift for friends with children.
