This game-changing book reveals the extraordinary results of focusing on our children's strengths rather than always trying to correct their weaknesses. By showing us how to throw the 'strength switch', Dr Lea Waters demonstrates how we can help our children build resilience, optimism and achievement.
As a strength-based scientist for more than 20 years, Waters has seen how this approach enhances self-esteem and energy in both children and teenagers - and how parents find it an exciting and rewarding way to raise them. With many suggestions for specific techniques to interact with your children, Waters demonstrates how to discover their strengths and talents, use positive emotions as a resource, build strong brains, and even how to deal with problem behaviour and talk about difficult situations and emotions. The Strength Switch will show parents that a small shift can yield enormous results.
