Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Parents will discover the leadership qualities that exist in every child and find how best to develop and encourage the development of those characteristics.
How do I bring out the best in my child? What can I do to help my children reach their full potential? Why is it important to enocurage leadership in my child? John Maxwell protégé, Dr. Tim Elmore, answers these questions and others in Nurturing the Leader Within Your Child. Using a survey of over 3,000 students, he enters the minds of today's youth to understand their desire to affect their world, their way.
Beginning with a foreword by John C. Maxwell, the book is in four unique sections (What You Need to Know, What They Need to Know, When to Seize the Moment, How to Pass it On). Dr. Elmore gives practical tools for bridging the generation gap to foster character and growth in your children. Offering a list of fundamental qualities every leader must possess, Dr. Elmore helps parents and youth workers recognize teachable moments and equips them to structure an individual mentoring plan for each child. Finally, he offers evaluation methods for recognizing progress.
