We all dream of having children who get on with it and do well. When they don't we fear the worst so we nag and push. But this approach can leave children feeling even less inspired.
In her new book, Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer looks at what motivates people in business and sport and adapts these principles for parents and their children. Using a new model of motivation, she shows how, from the start, we can create a climate at home which fosters self-motivation and encourages self-managed achievement in a range of skills. She also offers practical strategies for tackling common problems such as bullying, peer pressure and stress.
An essential guide for all parents to help children get the best from themselves.
