“Why oh why are my kids so different from me?” Our kids’ personalities fascinate us – they always have. It’s the reason the ‘nature’ versus ‘nurture’ debate goes on and on. But their personalities also challenge us because they are so often at odds with our own. The problem is that to have any hope of fully understanding our kids, we – as parents – need to properly understand ourselves first. That has not been easy to do … until now. Knowing Me, Knowing Them is a book designed specifically to help parents get a solid grasp of what it is that makes them tick. In three steps, this book will: 1. Help you discover your parenting personality type using the Enneagram 2. Explore how your personality affects your parenting style. 3. Provide further resources to help you unlock your children’s potential. Reading Knowing Me, Knowing Them will provide you with plenty of ‘aha!’ moments. You will spend less time worrying about and judging your parenting approach. And you will spend more time enjoying the wonderful, all-too-quick experience of raising your children. "This book gifts us with a practical, useful, and groundbreaking work for parents and adults in their relationship with children. You will benefit from this book whether you are new or experienced with the Enneagram." David Daniels, MD, Clinical Professor Emeritus Stanford Medical School and Enneagram pioneer. "The most important job in the world, being a parent, is the one that requires no license, no training, and does not end after 18 years. This book unlocks the key to this high-stress job and will be widely read by parents and grandparents everywhere." Ginger Lapid-Bogda, PhD, author Bringing Out the Best in Everyone You Coach
