I think this book is a excellent read for Singaporean parents. Have your child ever seem to be too laid back and resist improvement, although he or she has great potential?
Often children in Singapore have to be “forced” to go to tuition to improve their grades, “forced” to study, “forced” to practice piano etc. Wouldn’t it be great if the child has self-motivation to willingly go for tuition / self-study? This change of mindset is explored in this book: “The Self-Driven Child”.
“Forcing” children to study works in the short term, producing temporary improved academic results, but in the long term it leads to psychological problems and even mental breakdowns in severe cases. Not to mention there is no joy of learning experienced by the child. The alternative solution is described in “The Self-Driven Child”.
“It is not an overstatement to say that this is one of the most radical and important books on raising healthy, resilient, purpose-driven kids.” – Madeline Levine, author of The Price of Privilege
“An invaluable resource for the thinking parent.” – Lisa Damour, author
