I have always enjoyed reading with my girls. When I was a kid I often found myself lost in books so I like to inspire my girls to read. We’ve been very busy with after school activities and things going on but it’s still important to connect with reading. I recently heard about the book Wisdom for My Son and Daughter. The book started as a guide to life written by a father for his children, and so that they could pass it along to their children.
He hoped it would help them navigate the complexities of life a little more skillfully. But what started as an idea to help his own children evolved into a life guide for anyone interested in living a better life. The book discusses many of the flaws and limitations that are part and parcel of being emotional beings. It draws on the author’s own life struggles and a broad knowledge base to give easily understandable analogies. It is more than just a book; it is a roadmap for life. The author is to the point and covers a diverse set of modern-day issues in a warm, conversational style.
I actually was able to download and read this book on Amazon. I found it to be a great read, even one that’s good for the entire family. Especially if you have a teenager, this book has given me valuable insight and another way to think of things. That’s why I enjoy reading so much with my children. You can completely change your own life by hearing someone else’s experiences.
