Finally, there is a guide to help teachers, caregivers, coaches, and other mentors interact with children in a respectful and successful manner.

"The Art of Empowering Children" is a book that enlightens the parents to how important the influence of other teaching figures are in our children's lives. I read this book as a parent and found several ways to successfully work with and discipline my children in a 'win- win' outcome.

The respect and enthusiasm for children that Graybeal describes is contagious. I couldn't wait for the next chapter. This book should be included in college curriculums for teaching degrees; as also for all those soccer coaches and anyone else who works with children on a day to day basis.

There might not be a manual for parenthood, but this comes the closest I've read yet for a manual for teachers, coaches and caregivers.

inspiring parental reading 26 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for my daughter's karate teacher and read it before giving it to him. I enjoyed it. It explained much of the why and how behind karate for a know nothing parent, who just loves what it has done for my daughter (who I suspect has ADD). Her self esteem, attitude and school work have improved. thumbs up and a bow.

Secrets that you must share! 10 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"The Art of Empowering Children" is a shelf full of parenting books in one. The ideas are not brand new cutting edge techniques; instead they are based on age-old ways of how children can excel with the right amount of attention and care. The book is clearly written with each new subject falling in line with the previous one. It is also filled with many examples of how the techniques are used in real life situations. The book was written from a teaching perspective, but it can be easily incorporated in a family setting.

Interesting philosphy 29 Dec. 2013
By Sparrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really liked this book, it brought up some points on working with children (or anyone for that matter) that I hadn't thought of and made me see some things differently. At some points its an easy read, at others I had to read and re-read again to grasp what he meant.
