Develop your child's talents, energy, inspiration, and motivation

In Unlocking Your Child's Potential: Nurturing Brilliance and Shaping Futures, authors Jan Mühlfeit, a leader, global strategist and coach, and KateYina Krotová, an experienced lecturer in the field of education and child development, deliver a startlingly insightful and exciting discussion of how to bring out the best in your children. In the book, you'll learn how to avoid the four most common and basic mistakes made by parents and teachers--including focusing on weaknesses while forgetting strengths, neglecting why children do what they do, controlling time instead of harnessing energy, and focusing on success instead of happiness--and learn to achieve something for yourself and your children.

You'll gain valuable and actionable knowledge you can apply immediately in areas like:
* Positive psychology and how children's brains actually function
* How to search for a child's true self, their authenticity, and their exceptional character
* Strategies for encouraging and harnessing energy, motivation, and inspiration in young children

Perfect for parents, teachers and coaches everywhere, Unlocking Your Child's Potential is also a must-read resource for early childhood educators, social workers who work with young children, and anyone else interested in bettering the lives of the youngest among us.
