'Jeni Hooper's new book is essential reading for all professionals working with children including teachers, counsellors, social workers, as well as parents, and grandparents... What I especially like about Jeni Hooper's book is how the focus is always on the whole child... "How to find the right balance for effective parenting?" Read Ms Hooper's book carefully and keep it handy for future reference.'
- Special Needs Book Review
'A real achievement. Jeni Hooper has taken the evidence base of positive psychology and turned it into easy-to-use tools to help children to flourish. The book has everything you need to encourage children to develop their individual strengths and realise their potential.'
- Miriam Akhtar, positive psychologist, coach, trainer and visiting lecturer, University of East London, UK
'It is easy to see why so many of the hundreds of books on how to bring up a child seem to be focused on the challenges and difficulties of this task: the avoidance and management of problems is rightly high on any parenting priority list. However, Jeni Hooper reminds us that there is also another equally important component of good parenting -- helping children and young people to achieve appropriately high levels of personal and social wellbeing and fulfilment. She informs us how to achieve this in a most enticing way in her parent-friendly book. Essential reading for parents and carers, teachers... and grandparents!'
