Today there are virtual libraries of books on how to raise your kids, but so much of that advice concerns itself primarily with how to raise kids to be over-achievers. She weaves in stories from her personal experience as the head of Palo Alto High School’s journalism program, and her parenting experience raising two successful daughters. You can’t ever succeed unless you risk failing, and you’ll usually fail several times before succeeding. Jei reiktų trumpai apibūdinti, apie ką knyga, tai sakyčiau, kad apie tai, kaip vadovaujantis tam tikru požiūriu, ar taisyklėmis, sėkmingai pasiekti savo tikslus, gyventi su prasme ir būti gerais žmonėmis. Alas, I picked up this book anyway because I am always open to learning, growing and trying to do better.

In the 1960s, when journalist and educator Esther Wojcicki was a new, young mother, she struggled to know where to turn for parenting advice. Obviously there isn’t a “silver bullet” method for raising “successful” kids and it’s unrealistic to expect any magic answers to common parenting challenges, but I was hoping for something a little more well-defined than what Wojcicki offers. When the author’s daughter Anne graduated from college, she surprised everyone by announcing that she had no intention of pursuing a professional career at all; instead, she wanted to live at home and work as a babysitter. If your three daughters are Silicon Valley ceos and a doctor, then you must have done something right. Woj doesn't cite everything in the book as it's mentioned but there is an appendix and that makes it super easy to read without feeling lost or that you need a child development degree or more.However, she repeats herself a lot, and it feels very lacking in terms of any understanding of a final destination. Yes there were a few weird stories I didn't really agree or relate to (when one of her daughter's decided she would go to a different class in preschool and ultimately quit the school as a three year old) but I found this to be a great read. Beautiful book on installing TRICK (trust, respect, independence, collaboration and kindness) values into human beings. Her Ready or Not was in the NYT earlier this year and I wished that I’d read it years ago, when it seemed like the parenting advice was all pro-‘copter. I guess the idea is that she'll be able to tell us what child-raising techniques she used to turn her daughters into successes?

She also needs to do some fact-checking because, at one point, she tells a story about leaving her high-school-aged kids alone for a weekend in 1994—when they would have been in their twenties.But I know what I can do to prepare my children for the world and set them up to hopefully have the access, resources, and heart to do better for others and their kin.

But the reality is that many of us have experienced some sort of childhood trauma, or had parents who made serious mistakes. Although she lectures other parents that kindness is more important, throughout the book she keeps giving examples of kids in her class who rose to great success because of her program, or at least rose to a status above that of their family.Skamba kažkaip labai self-helpiškai, bet Esther Wojcicki rašo tikrai nuoširdžiai, dalinasi pavyzdžiais iš darbo mokykloje su vaikais, taip pat pasakoja, kaip augino savo dukras, kokiais principais vadovavosi ir, kas iš to išėjo.
