Parenting is a very complex skill. Good parenting requires constant adaptation to the fast-changing world. In today's world, a child's time is occupied by various activities along with many distractions like gadgets which keeps the child busy and the parent's hectic job schedules leave very less time for positive communication between a child and the parents.
Dr Anupam Sibal, a paediatrician and a Group Medical Director of Apollo Hospitals Group has very effectively shown the approach to parenthood. Dr Sibal has shown the hands-on approach to focus on different values and qualities to instil in a child.
Different traits of personalities are very beautifully explained in different chapters of this book through examples of Sachin Tendulkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking, Ratan Tata and the likes. Some examples of ordinary people with extraordinary qualities are also worth reading.
This book is a great help to parents as well as teachers. It deals in an effective way of bringing up a child from infancy to adulthood with a proper emotional and intellectual development. This book shows how inspiring icons, world events and personal success stories can be used to communicate with the child about the various values that every parent feel should be inculcated in a child.
As a mother and a teacher, this book has enriched me with some great parenting skills and has redefined my approach towards parenthood.
