Summary

How the use of six core principles can ensure happy, healthy children grow up to be happy, healthy adults Drawing from his vast experience working with families, along with his own experiences as a parent, clinical psychologist David Coleman has devised a program based upon six core values-trust, kindness, responsibility, honesty, respect, and thoughtfulness-that form the basis of a thriving family life. Identifying characteristics of the properly thriving family include: recognizing and embracing the fact that life is challenging; acknowledging individuality and seeking to develop the unique potentials of each family member in a nurturing environment; seeking to understand its own history and how this is brought to bear on family life, and to find new solutions to old problems; and seeking to create an unshakeable unit where children will become strong, considerate, and independent adults, regardless of the challenges that the family faces on its journey. This book draws on the six core principles to guide parents through each stage of family life. In an age where the concept of family is more all-embracing than ever before, this book offers a unifying way forward for all.
