This book carries messages of growth and healing for anyone who cares for children, as well as for anyone who has ever been a child. Ms. Felt Sienko presents practical wisdom that applies to every family in a unique way. She teaches the reader the principles of raising emotionally healthy and empowered children. At the same time she challenges the key adults in every child's life to examine the messages they are sending to the children in their charge. Whether the adult is the parent, grandparent, guardian, teacher or daycare worker, it is important to be aware of the emotional impact our behaviors have on the lives of each of these impressionable souls. "It is vitally important to become conscious of the role of modeling, emotional reactions, adult attitudes, tone and behaviors in shaping the destiny of each child. The parenting paradigm has shifted from an authoritarian, rule-based and highly directive approach to one of compassion and empowerment. Creating and maintaining a dynamic balance between a controlling approach and permissiveness is important so that children learn to make intelligent choices and to thrive emotionally. By addressing the child's basic needs for respect, unconditional love, self-worth, exploration, and contribution, we can create future generations of productive, positive, and emotionally healthy adults. What is the ultimate goal? Quite simply, the goal is world peace
