Any parent will know the task of guiding a little life is pretty difficult and it is a full-time job that requires a lot of love, dedication, and understanding.

We sometimes wish there was a parenting handbook to help us out...

Enter #RaisingKids. This book exceeds a little guidance and is instead an inspiring tool that aids with fun interactive activities that spark conversations fueled by consciousness and engagement. I am so delighted to have done the foreword for this book.

The reality is that we are raising our children in a world that is nothing like the one we were raised in. Computers, cellphones, the internet, social networks, dating online - the list goes on. It is a world where things change at the drop of a hat!

Old careers are null and void, and there are even newer careers that I barely understand. When I was growing up, there were the conventional careers, like doctors, lawyers, and accountants that most parents would have preferred their children getting into, but now our children can have jobs that no longer require them to even leave home! I can imagine William Shakespeare shuddering in his grave over this! That is where this incredible book by Paul Bushell comes in. 

The fun activities in the book focus on growing emotional intelligence around areas such as resilience, communication, curiosity, self-image, empathy, and embracing diversity.
