Communicating with our children. Conversing. Connecting. When did it become
so difficult? And how do we begin to change it for the better?
This book was designed to help parents answer these important questions,
and it is based on two fundamental ideas: The first is that there are no bad
children, and no deliberately bad parents -- but that sometimes, despite the
best of intentions on both sides, there can be bad relationships between parents
and children. The second is that, as parents, we must do everything we can to
save those relationships, to reach out and really communicate with our children,
because it is only through talking to them that we can create an environment
for inspiration and change.
In this compelling book, Shmuley Boteach, passionate social commentator and
outspoken relationship guru, walks you through the critical conversations,
including: cherishing childhood; developing intellectual curiosity; knowing who
you are and what you want to become; learning to forgive; realizing the importance
of family and tradition; being fearless and courageous. As a father of eight, Rabbi
Shmuley speaks from a wealth of experience. He has written a book for parents of
children of all ages, from toddlers, who are just beginning to become aware of the
world around them, to adolescents, who must learn to navigate all sorts of tricky
social and academic pressures.
10 Conversations will help you stay connected to your children so that they
develop the kind of strong moral character that leads to rich, meaningful lives
