Parenting is a difficult job, no child arrives with an instruction book, and whether you are a parent of one or many, the innate nature of each child makes the task virtually incomparable. Hettie Brittz’ Growing Kids with Character acknowledges that difference and offers guidance for parents who may be seeking answers.
Using the Tall Tree Parenting Profile, Brittz theories that children are like trees, each requiring different degrees of sunlight, water, fertilizer, care, and pruning. While I didn’t wholeheartedly concur with many of Brittz’ ideas, parents raising children with unique personalities will all agree that what works for one child may not work at all for another.
If nothing else, Growing Kids with Character offers struggling parents alternatives that might bring some relief to the often-overwhelming mission known as raising kind, caring, and well-adjusted human beings.
