People learn to have confidence in themselves at an early age. With confidence in themselves they are likely to overcome obstacles to success by being persistent in the face of failure; children who solve problems as a result of their own thinking gain confidence. Every child has a strong desire to self-learn. This book offers techniques in learning to encourage children to learn without fear of making mistakes. Concrete examples are given of daily activities to be used to educate a child and at the same time establish strong character. The techniques are simple to use and possible for anyone to emulate. Exploring the environment is an adventure for children. By seeing themselves in stories about that adventure, children become willing partners in education. This book offers brief examples from the lives of famous people to show such learning was crucial in their success. This book also gives examples of how to set limitations. Rules for behavior can be given for a child in such a way as to make it more likely for cooperation than rebellion. This book offers inspiring lessons for both parents and educators.

Setting guidelines for young ones is hard work, but an important challenge. It doesn't have to be such a challenge. Learning is fun and adventurous for the young and old alike. Anyone who is a new parent or grandparent will benefit by reading this book, and experience a heart-warming feeling.
This is a delightful exercise in teaching a young child painlessly by encouraging her to share in some of the most unlikely chores. Work becomes fun and stories become parables for life. Life lessons are taken from Edison, Bertrand Russell, Lincoln and others. This book is a wonderful exercise in child care at its most imaginative and productive.
