Strengths Based Parenting doesn’t prescribe one “right” way to parent. Instead, author Mary Reckmeyer empowers parents to embrace their individual parenting style by discovering and developing their own — and their children’s — talents and strengths. With real-life stories, practical advice backed by Gallup data, and access to the Clifton StrengthsFinder and Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer assessments, Strengths Based Parenting builds the foundation for positive parenting.
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. But unlike many parenting books, Strengths Based Parenting focuses on identifying and understanding what your children are naturally good at and where they thrive — not on their weaknesses. 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.
Grounded in decades of Gallup research on strengths psychology — as highlighted in Gallup’s StrengthsFinder 2.0, which has sold nearly 5 million copies to date — Strengths Based Parenting shows you how to uncover your children’s top talents and your own. The strengths journey is one that the whole family embarks on together, and Strengths Based Parenting will guide you and your children to more fulfilling, productive and happy lives.
