    This is THE most awesome book on parenting! It really opened my eyes to how my actions, both intentional and unintentional, help shape the personalities my children are developing. I have gifted this book to others and I, myself, have read it and re-read it...going back to it often to affirm what I've learned and am practicing. This is THE most awesome book on parenting!

    children born are as no limit individuals, with zero hang ups. It is the adults, more so the parents who in the garb of parenting carry out the attempts to straitjacket these tiny lives according to their whims. I read this book way back in 1990 when my son was born.I tried my best to implement the prescriptions from the book. Believe me I had to face embarrassment many a time. But my son who is in mid twenties and daughter that is in teens have grown largely into kind of no non sense persons, c children born are as no limit individuals, with zero hang ups.

My son read it and it is, believe me, our family book,a bed book to be consulted every time we are faced to make parenting to our kids

    This is a fabulous book. Every teacher and parent should be required to read it. If only all children could be raised with the practices in this book. The world would certainly be a better place! Highly recommend this one. It's one you need to read more than once, too! This is a fabulous book. Every teacher and parent should be required to read it.

    AMAZING! We set the example and memories for children...this books shows you how to inspire and motivated children to believe that their goals are attainable - they just have to believe in themselves.

    Decent practical advice but nothing really earth shattering. At times it was a little dated too since it was published in 1985. The letter in the front of the book by Bonnie Kippen kind of turned me off becuae she seemed to not want her children to be "good influences" or "sweet" because they would then be too indoctrinated by society and I fail to see why that is so horrible as long as a child can still be creative and enjoy themselves - we have to follow rules to survive as a society!

I also don't have a problem with telling my children to "do their best." I don't think this is such a horrible thing - I'm not expecting perfection but just for them to do their best at something. I definitely fit the Type A personality description in this book although I have learned to tone it down a bit - intense striving, competitiveness, deadline urgency, impatience, and organization. I have gotten better with these things as I have aged though. In the book the author is very against medication of any kind and although I am not big on taking medication myself, I don't think it is fair for a doctor to be so against it. Sometimes, medication for depression, anxiety, allergies or a headache might be just the thing someone needs. A professional should give everyone all the information and not spout their beliefs. I also think his comment about "thinking yourself well will keep you well" is a little overblown. Sure a positive attitude is important but his claim that he hasn't been sick for 10 years because of healthy living and positive thinking. I almost felt like he was saying if a person gets a cold, it is their fault. I donk't feel that is fair at all. His description of a creative child also reminded me a lot of Robbie - wearing his emotions right on his face, he's happy and healthy in one moment and then in the depths of despair the next, he has "odd" fascinations , he loves to tell stories........ Loved this poem on p. 243: First I was dying to finish high school and start college. And then I was dying to finish college and start working. And then, I was dying to marry and have children. And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school so I could return to work. And then I was dying to retire. And now, I am dying. . .And suddenly realize, I forgot to live. I need to remember to slow down and enjoy!

    Another classic from Wayne Dyer. Not only I will keep this book next to me all the time but also I am going to recommend it to every parent, every teacher, every parent to be. As I was reading the book I realised all the things i tried to do right for my kids but also the mistakes we are making on a daily basis without realising the consequences. Thank you Wayne Dyer for your ability to articulate your wisdom so well.

    A book that finally understand what I am trying to provide from my children - happiness, confidence and peace, not what society has deemed success!! Dyer communicates how to raise "no-limit" kids. A book that finally understand what I am trying to provide from my children - happiness, confidence and peace, not what society has deemed success!!

    Love this book, every chapter I read I always thought “I should read this book early, when my kids were younger - that would made a huge impact in their education and my own approach on a lot of subjects” . But I still take a lot of concepts to implement now in their education and also in my profession. The kind of book we keep on hand to re-read again and again.

    I love everything by Wayne Dyer, so it was great to read his take on parenting. It was published in 1985, so some of the language is outdated for sure. The letter at the end was one of the best parts.

    Definitely something I'll come back to. There are certain sections that are helpful in my role as a student clinician which I want to refer to later, but I don't necessarily agree with all of Dyer's statements about raising children.

    This is a great book not just for working with children but with working with friends and family in general. It's amazing how many mistakes we make in our relationships Feb 2009 I realized that this book can help me with my sorry childhood. My parents made the mistakes. No hugs, no encouragement, no praises, no truth about my birth, and no lots of stuff. How'd I turn out so good. Must have been all those great books I read. They left me alone and I found myself in books. I left them at 19 and mar This is a great book not just for working with children but with working with friends and family in general.

    I found this book last winter by one of my favorite authors. I really agree with most of his parenting premises. I find myself going back to it a lot to get new insights because his thinking does not come naturally to me. (I was raised in a lovingly authoritative household). I love his ideas about encouraging wellness and critical thinking.

    Awesome methods of acquiring the wisdom to pass on to your children. Note for Jaqueline Wilson: This is how we (plural) are raising our orphaned Nephew Josh!!!!! Your harsh judgments of me are cruel and childish, so do please, grow up and get a partner/child of your own - rather than borrow other people's - only then can you comment on relationships!!! I love and forgive us both. xxx Awesome methods of acquiring the wisdom to pass on to your children. Note for Jaqueline Wilson: This is how we (plural) are raising our orphaned Nephew Josh!!!!!

    This book by the well-known motivational author asks parents to think about what type of people they want their children to be and to parent them accordingly. Giving children the opportunities to learn that their choices have consequences and helping them learn critical thinking to be independent and positive adults begins with the ways we parent and communicate. I enjoyed it.

    What you really want for children you need to implement for yourself first. It is all connected...I gave it 4 stars b/c it was a bit wordy at times but great insight on how to really give your children what you really want for them and not focus on what you don't want or it will multiply...
