Book Description

7 July 2005

This book is an innovative, accessible and groundbreaking guide that will change the way adults communicate with children forever.

 

David Hemery believes that within every young person there is ‘a spark of greatness’ and a unique individual keen to fulfil his or her potential. Every adult is a guardian of that flame of talent. Using everyday scenarios and cartoons he introduces:

 

EFFECTIVE QUESTIONING and ATTENTIVE LISTENING – powerful and positive communication tools that deliver extraordinary results.

 

Every parent, teacher and coach will recognise common pitfalls that are described with astute comment and humour. Hemery shows how easy it is to transform conflict in communication, and to encourage young people to take responsibility for their actions, develop their self-esteem and reach their true potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Help your children rach their potential 19 Oct 2011
By Zoony
Format:Paperback
This is a little book but it's packed with hints and tips for parents, teachers and coaches to help inspire, engage, empower and develop children. For many years I've thought that there is something missing in the way we educate our children. If parents, teachers and coaches took on all the ideas in this book, then our children would definitely be better off. David Hemery believes that there is a spark of greatness in everyone. Read this book to help you find a way to ignite that spark.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you ask the right question! 12 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David Hemery has written a book that all parents should read, this is not neccessarily about grooming your child to be a world champion it's about making them rounded, better people, able to cope with life's many challenges and also your relationship with them.
For parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, in fact anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great starting point 25 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great starting point but a bit thin on content, could almost be a PDF rather than a purchased book, but appreciate the experience required to make a simple condensed book

Really enjoyed the book. Some very common sense ideas into getting your child to engage their brains, and take responsbililty for themselves. Emphasis is on positivity and should be read by coaches and parents alike.
