Becoming BRILLIANT

The authors believe that “real brilliance comes when we support happy, healthy, thinking, caring, and social children so that they become collaborative, creative, competent, and responsible citizens tomorrow.” While the concept is not new, the book connects the 6Cs together and illustrates how children can build upon these concepts to be successful in the real world.

HOW CHILDREN SUCCEED

This book addresses how character strengths such as perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control influence the extent of success in an individuals’ life, and the role parents play in enhancing these attributes in children. This book is geared more toward practitioners so can be dense at times, however, it is still worth reading.

SIMPLICITY PARENTING

In a world of over-scheduled children and overwhelmed parents, this book talks about how less can be more. It explains how slowing things down by honoring a child’s natural rhythms, decluttering the environment, and filtering out the adult world allows children to create an inner structure that will be more beneficial to them as adults in this highly competitive, stressful world.
