Overview

Children become the messages they get the most.

Children's Literature - Kimberly Hutmacher
In a time when it seems that children are constantly being bombarded with negative messages, Taylor explains the positive messages children need to hear in order to have healthy views of themselves, others, and the world in general. He says that children need to hear positive messages on love, competence, security, compassion, gratitude, nature, respect, responsibility and emotion, and he details why each area is so important. He goes on to explain the different ways in which children receive messages. The message conduits, as he refers to them, are what you say, what you feel, what you do, who you are, and what your children do. Taylor explains how some of the well-meaning messages parents send are actually being interpreted by the child and offers readers fun catchphrases, rituals, and activities to help deliver each positive message in ways that children will interpret correctly. This book is easy to follow, practical, and a great addition to any parent's bookshelf. Reviewer: Kimberly Hutmacher
