Publisher's summary

“The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” (Denis Waitley)

You want the best for your child, it’s true, and you might think that “the best” is gifting them with material things that will only bring momentary happiness. For those of you who can’t afford to do so, you see yourselves as failing parents.

The truth is, what saves our children and what saves a family are the things that can’t be bought, but can only be taught, learned, and practiced.

The Positive Child was authored with every parent in mind - whether well-off or struggling, new or seasoned - for those who think they’ve got this parenting thing in the bag, and for those who have no idea what they’re doing.

Jessica Palmer, mother of four, wants to help you build a healthy, happy, positive home by starting with you. Your attitude, your ideals, your beliefs. It's not the lifestyle that you can or can’t afford for your child that will morph them into phenomenal adults, it’s how you live and what you practice in the home.

In this enlightening audiobook, Jessica shares a bucketload of sagacious tips and tricks on how to cultivate healthy, positive behaviors in kids, using guiding principles such as:

  • Becoming your child’s best example
  • Respecting your child’s space and life decisions
  • Empowering instead of shaming
  • Encouraging creativity and independent definitions
  • Teaching emotional intelligence
  • Setting high expectations
  • Practicing family rituals
  • Building meaningful relationships

Do you really want to give your child the best life? The life they truly deserve? The life that will shape them into determinedly successful adults? Then, this is where you start.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I really enjoyed it

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I have three siblings and I wanted to learn a bit more about how I can help them in any way possible. Also I really like the narrator voice. Made me want to listen to the whole audiobook in just one sitting.
