Product Description

Review

‘This is a book to be recommended to anyone committed to getting the best out of their children – and, more importantly, to helping their children to get the best out of themselves.’ Dr Stephen Briers, Clinical Psychologist, Little Angels and Teen Angels.

From the Back Cover

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.

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.

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.

As a coach of young athletes I find there are some gems in here. It is simply written but not simplistic.

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

It's a quick and easy read and unless you happen to be a parent, coach and teacher then you don't need to read every chapter if you don't have time. However, if you can its worth it. As mentioned it doesn't take long and as a parent you can find yourself really in all 3 roles anyway!

The book makes huge amounts of sense. We generally don't encourage our children to think enough for themselves and they become reliant on adults making decisions for them. Not a recipe that will lead to successful independent adulthood!

The techniques proposed in the book are simple enough to understand but inevitably much harder to implement. I believe its worth persevering and practicing not only for the better relationship you could build with your children but the wider benefits of being a more active listener and engaged questioner at work and in your other relationships.

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.
