What Kids Would Tell You If Only You Would Ask & Your Child's Inner Brilliance Review & Giveaway...

I love a good parenting book.  I love being a mother but it is certainly more challenging than I had imagined.  Raising people is hard!  I have come across a new set of books to help you navigate the wonder that is parenthood by getting to know your child better.  Read on...

What Kids Would Tell You...If Only You'd Ask!  101 conversations you DON'T have to have with your kids.  They are about nothing and everything.  In fact, you could spend you whole life never having any of these conversations with your kids---and you'd never miss them...EXCEPT you will!  What parents miss are the opportunities to get to really know their kids...one conversation at a time---by finding out about what they think, how they feel...about their opinions, ideas, dreams, and so on.  It's amazing what they'll tell you… if only you'd ask!


Your Child's Inner Brilliance...Parent Guide to Discovery.  This book is meant for parents who have a child between ages 5-12, helping them explore their child from various aspects to help him/her unfold in their own unique way.  Every child has inner brilliance waiting to be brought forth into the world.  This book helps parents take an inventory of their child's traits, interests, strengths, limitations, and many other characteristics that make their particular child unique.  Then, it takes them one step further---looking at the various ways that they can/are/aren't playing a part in allowing their child to become the person s/he is meant to be.

These amazing guides are the work of  world recognized child psychologist Dr. Vicki  Panaccione who has been called the "Oprah Winfrey of parenting".  Dr. Vicki has created these amazing guides to help us better understand our children and to open the lines of communication.  These are not your average "do this and then do that" parenting books....not even close.  These books are tools for you to use to help you and  your child have a better understanding of  one another and to learn more about the people they are and the people they hope to be.

A&W are a little  young for me to fully use these books but when they get a little older they I will be starting right in and then keeping them as a memento!  For now I am using the questions to get the boys talking and they have sparked some great 4 year old conversations!  I know they each want a "bunch" of children and they want me to watch them all!  I know their least favorite part of the day is bedtime and that A wants to own a candle store and W wants to be in construction!


These books really are a gateway to some important and loving conversations with your child.  They would make a wonderful gift for you AND your child. Visit Dr. Vicki's website here to purchase these special guides.
