"This is the book I wish I had when I was a counselor and counselor educator. It embraces everything parents, teachers, grandparents, counselors, and caregivers need to learn to raise spiritual, healthy, self-aware, mindful, kind, and grateful children. At the same time, this book will teach and remind adults how to become the same. Thank you Ester and Deb for writing this most informative and helpful book."
