From one of the world’s leading thinkers and educational keynote speakers on the strengths movement and 21st Century Education, Jenifer Fox’s Your Child’s Strengths is a breakthrough book about children’s innate strengths, the current problems with our school system and practical advice for assuring success. A strength is the thing that energizes a child and holds their attention longer than anything else. When true strengths are discovered, young people can find success and focus for their futures.
Your Child’s Strengths draws on true stories from Jenifer Fox’s 30 years of experience working with young people from around the world. More than a simple advice book, Jenifer’s stories are funny, endearing and recognizable to most adults. Her concise and powerful prose style make this book easy and engaging to read and at the same time is packed with wisdom. Your Child’s Strengths begins with a surprising critique of our current educational system, outlining ways that is unintentionally weakens rather than strengthens individuals. More than simply a narrative, Your Child’s Strengths provides a workbook for parents and an outline of a curriculum for schools.
