Description

Research shows that African parents seem to produce admirable resilience among their children. Their character driven style is a holistic approach founded in African ancient wisdom that encourages curiosity, self-confidence, perseverance and optimism in an effort to trying to engineer “grit,” and a measure of resilience.

This is the central theme of this book: That truly successful children have, as one of their key ingredients, purposeful parenting.

‘Parenting with Purpose & African Wisdom’ is not a recipe for success, but a relevant, thoughtful presentation of principles that make for parenting that delivers results most of the time.
