A key message for parents: Once a divine perspective is ignited within, we can feel more intimately connected to the eternal source, cultivating personal truth, authentic relationships, and enhanced life experiences.
There is no greater gift to another, within any relationship, than encouraging that individual to live and express her own truth (232).
When I first picked up this book, I was worried that it was going to be an overly religious book. So I was a little hesitant to read it.
However, when I picked it up and finally began reading, I found that it had a lot of things in it that I try to *push* onto my kids. For example, going through and living life wide awake. You need to know what's around you, be ready, take consequences for your choices and not lay blame.
There are activities, 15 universal themes and 22 methods for integration. Of course, not everything was something that I'd use/try. But there was a lot of ideas that really opened up some further thought on the parent and child bonds.
This is a great idea for parents of school aged children. A lot of wonderful ideas and ways to make them work for you. Even when you think, as I do, that your bonds are strong with your children, there's always at least a new idea or two that will make it even better. Don't pass up that chance, pick up this book.
