    well written fortune telling

    I found Jean Haner's book, The Wisdom of Your Child's Face: Discover Your Child's True Nature with Chinese Face Reading, to be extremely well written. Her stance on understanding your child and their perspective is one which readily fits with consensually living philosophies. However, I just couldn't take the book seriously.

    Chinese face reading seems to be the equivalent of astrology or number reading. Write something with enough generality, and you can find patterns in anything. I admit to being a skeptic, and thinking this through most of the book. However, towards the end she discusses how facial features are indicative of previous or future life events. Prior to that point, I would have at least given some credence to some of the features in chinese face reading as being a product of social and cultural perceptions.

    I would recommend the book to anyone who really likes astrology or other vaguely patterned fortune telling methods. The five types of personalties may also appeal to hardcore Steiner/Waldorf advocates. Personally, I'll just stick with nonviolent communication methods to understand my children.
