Overview

People joke that your children don’t come with a user's manual, but they're wrong. It's written in their faces and all you have to do is learn to read them. The secrets of your children's inner nature and personal potential are eloquently inscribed in the curve of their cheeks, the shape of their eyes, the contour of their brows, and the unique language of their original design. 
      Chinese face reading is based on ancient Taoist principles that teach that each child is born with a soul's intent, a blueprint that is theirs and theirs alone, and this inner architecture is reflected in their outer design. When you can read your children's faces, you can discover their true nature. You can understand what their special gifts are, see where their personal challenges will be, and how to guide them through these issues. You’ll be able to recognize what they need from you in order to feel safe and loved, and you’ll be empowered as a parent to raise them with less stress, more joy, and the confidence that you're helping them fulfill their special purpose in the world!

    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.
