How can you discover your children's unique talents? And how can you use your own talents and strengths to be the most effective and supportive parent possible?


Strengths Based Parenting addresses these and other questions on parents' minds.

The book also helps you uncover your own innate talents and effectively apply them to your individual parenting style.


You'll find stories, examples and practical advice as well as a strengths assessment access code for parents and one for kids, so you can take the first step to discovering your innate talents and those of your children.
