Howard Books Raising Unselfish Children in a Self-Absorbed World - eBook

After decades of experimenting with child-focused parenting, parents are beginning to realize that the result is often self-centered children who tend toward egotism, selfishness and mediocrity. Child expert Jill Rigby reveals the dangers of the self-esteem parenting philosophy and challenges parents to teach their children to be unselfish givers instead. With her encouraging approach, Rigby helps parents realize it's never too late to change their children's point of view and equip them to interact with kindness and respect in a world outside themselves.

This was an awesome book that I highly recommend to parents. The author gives specific guidelines for different age levels and lots of hands-on ideas on how to implement those ideas. I finished reading the book quickly because it was well written and interesting, as well as informative.

I just love the books by author Jill Rigby. I heard her once at a Hearts at Home Conference and have been a fan ever since. Her books hit on relevant topics and this one is no different. In this book, Rigby points out that we are raising a generation of self-focused children who aren't ready to meet real life challenges at adults. She's right! But instead of leaving it there, she gives hope - as well as advice - on how we can change our parenting to reshape our child to be "other-foused".Easy to read, relevant, and hopeful, Raising Unselfish Children in a Self-Absorbed World will help you raise your child to become an adult that makes a difference in their world.Kudos to the author!
