The experience of childhood has changed dramatically over the last decades. Children and teenagers are presented with many exciting opportunities, but they also face new challenges and are often asked to meet impossible standards set by their peers and promoted by advertising and the media. Roots and Wings equips parents and educators to teach children the skills they need to understand and navigate modern life with confidence. Topics covered include: • building and maintaining self-esteem in a materialistic and competitive society • dealing with new family structures and parenting styles • understanding the influence of social media and technology • recognising and tackling mental health issues • creating healthy parent-child relationships • encouraging and modelling kindness For children to grow into compassionate, confident, happy adults, they must have role-models who demonstrate self-care and care for those around them. Roots and Wings draws on the principles of mindfulness that will help both you and your child achieve greater peace and belonging, both within your relationship and in a society that seems increasingly exclusive. Simple but effective strategies that employ techniques such as connecting with nature, teaching emotional intelligence and paying attention to what is present in and around us will provide you with a toolkit that you can easily tailor to your circumstances, either at home or in educational and childcare settings. Roots and Wings is an invaluable resource for parents, teachers and everyone involved in caring for young people and interested in creating a happier, more balanced society.
Roots and Wings is an outstanding, inspirational, and useful parenting book that will benefit parents, guardians, and of course, children. When I discovered Roots and Wings, I instantly knew that it was a book I had to read. As a parent, I adore parenting books, and I think it is refreshing, as well as a necessity to read books from other parents (and professionals) so that ideas, thoughts, and opinions on how best to raise our children can be shared. The information courtesy of the talented author Alex Koster laced throughout Roots and Wings is enlightening and practical. Throughout the book, I discovered information I had not known about before or thought of so already I would recommend Roots and Wings. If you are a parent or guardian, then Roots and Wings would be a brilliant and effective book for you and your family… so do not miss out!
Roots and Wings is a remarkable book written by the equally impressive author, Alex Koster who in her book will help parents raise their children in the best possible way. Alex Koster explains in her book that although children and young adults have many exciting opportunities today, they are under more stress than ever thanks to tough schooling, social media, and so much more. That is why in her book, she covers many topics all which help children how to ‘navigate modern life with confidence’ and the results are incredible. Topics such as the effect and influence of social media is explored as well as mental health and parent-child relationships, so the incredible Roots and Wings has it all and should not be missed!
Roots and Wings is an excellent book not only for the author’s honesty about subjects in her book but also the information she has so expertly laced throughout the book. The profoundness in Roots and Wings is sensational, and many readers will feel a host of different emotions while reading this book. Koster effortlessly inspires thoughts and feelings in her readers as well as compel them to read from beginning to end. I found myself reading Roots and Wings at an alarming rate because it was captivating as well as interesting; Koster’s incredible literature will have you turning the pages frantically, and I adored how she was able to do this.
Throughout Roots and Wings, there are many chapters and many topics explored, but instead of them being confusing and hard to navigate, the book is actually incredibly accessible, and Koster will guide you through every step, making sure you are informed at every stage so that you are never left behind or confused. Koster does this by organizing all of her categories perfectly. I adore how Koster made her book so accessible and easy to navigate and practice because many self-help books can be the opposite, which in turn can stall your ability to make changes.
Overall Roots and Wings is an insightful, informative, inspiring book and I would say if you are a reader who is interested in the topics explored in this book, then the remarkable Roots and Wings is for you!
