Publisher's summary

After years of experience leading communication workshops and honing his own parenting skills, John Gray has created a brilliantly original and effective system that he calls positive parenting, for children of all ages; from birth through the teenage years. Completing the notion that "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus", he adds "Children are from Heaven".

Children Are From Heaven covers different skills of parenting to help improve communication, increase cooperation, and motivate your children. Central to this new approach are the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again.

  • It's okay to be different.
  • It's okay to make mistakes.
  • It's okay to express negative emotions.
  • It's okay to want more.
  • It's okay to say no, but remember Mom and Dad are the bosses.

    When these messages are put into practice, and John Gray shows you how, your children will develop the necessary skills for successful living: forgiveness of others and themselves, sharing, delayed gratification, self-esteem, patience, persistence, respect for others and themselves, cooperation, compassion, confidence, and the ability to be happy.

    By applying the five messages and different skills of positive parenting, your children will receive what they need to become more cooperative, confident, and compassionate children.
