What do children really want their parents to know, and what do children need to grow into thriving adults? Most parents have a deep desire to do what's best for their children, but kids don't come with instruction manuals. Diana Loomans and her daughter, Julia Godoy, are here to help. They offer twelve powerful keys to raising a happy, responsible, and fulfilled child, including:

  • Teach by example

  • Allow room to grow and make mistakes

  • Give acknowledgment and show appreciation

  • Use positive discipline with respect

Based on a popular poem co-written by this mother-and-daughter team, this book is filled with inspiring stories, ideas, and exercises to use with children of all ages. The authors will help you focus on what's most important, resulting in a parent-child relationship filled with mutual respect and love.

POSITIVELY MOTHER GOOSE

 

Carefully rewritten to preserve the musical rhythm of the originals, these refreshing new versions of the 400-year-old nursery rhymes promote the values of self-esteem, lifelong learning, and innovative thinking.

 

A re-written rhyme from Positively Mother Goose;

 

There was a BOLD woman who lived in a shoe,
She had many children and knew what to do.
" You are all lovable with special gifts," she said,
She hugged them all fondly and tucked them in bed.

"The rhymes are heartening...and full of positive imagery. A must-have for any youngster."

~Body Mind Spirit Magazine
