Review

Jack Canfield author of Chicken Soup for the Soul The greatest gift you can give your children is to read this book and use the powerful principles it teaches.

Doug Krug author of Enlightened Leadership These concepts are as vital to shaping your child(ren)'s future as a solid foundation is to building a house. The 10 Greatest Gifts I Give My Children offers astonishing, simple, effective methods of imparting priceless values to our children.

Spencer Johnson, M.D. coauthor, The One Minute Manager; author, Value Tales for Children A wonderful way to encourage your children to develop their own character -- from integrity to humor!

Judith Briles author of The Confidence Factor and Woman to Woman Calling all parents -- Finally, a real person, a parent, delivers the answers. Steven Vannoy identifies the questions and gives fabulous solutions. Where was he when I had little ones?

David Hartenbach Superintendent, Aurora Public Schools The 10 Greatest Gifts I Give My Children is more informative to parents than Dr. Spock or Sesame Street in helping children develop into self-directed and capable adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars great parenting book! June 21 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is one of the best parenting books I've read. It gives you solid tools for parenting from the heart. This author is a management expert, not a psychologist, and many of the tools are appropriate for working with people, no matter what their age. I especially like the "gift of forward focus" which helps kids to see that all of life is about learning lessons, and that the only reason to look backward is to understand the lesson in order to be able to avoid the same mistake again. Otherwise it just wastes your energy. I also like the "gift of feeling fully" which helps kids to be in touch with their emotions. I have already given several copies as gifts and will continue to do so. To the author: Have you considered an audiotape?

Format:Paperback
It's a great book not only on parenting, but also on human relationship and communication. I enjoyed reading this book coz it gives real life examples and the changes made after applying the five tools that can work miracles. The most inspiring tool for me is "forward focus" which keeps us on the positive side of things -- this is essential for bringing up kids with positive perspective that gets them moving ahead in face of the challenges of the world. Regarding the ten gifts that we can give to our kids, I can't agree more. It's truly a book written "from the heart".

This book is not just for parents. It should also be read by teachers, principals, school administrators, counselors, Sunday school teachers , and grandparents - anyone who spends time with our children. They are our future and it is important to the future of our children that we use and teach the "Forward Focus" and "Positive Messaging" techniques prescribed in this book. Our children, ourselves, and our society can only benefit from it and becuase of it we may someday live in a world full of positivity and possibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars This stuff really works! July 25 2000
Format:Paperback
I read this book about 2 years ago. I started using his techniques first with the kids. Boy what a difference! The kids responded great. Next I tried it on my employees, it worked great with them too. This is such a gentle way to get the kids and employees to behave in the manner in which you need them too. Thanks Steve for making life at home and work much better. My kids are just entering the teenage years and I think these techniques are going to make these years quite managable.

Format:Paperback
If you only read one parenting book in your lifetime, this should be it! The book is easy to read and will truly make a difference in your life and that of your children. I have encouraged everyone I know to read this book. I believe that if one out of every ten people in our country read this book, we would see dramatic changes in society...quite possibly less depression, less violence, and an overall improvement of the emotional health of society. This book in invaluable.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The 10 Greatest Gifts I Give My Children gives us parents, and anyone who loves and works with children some of the best common sense and "from the heart" tools to use in the family. I've found the concepts in this book to be useful not only at home but in the workplace, where everyday we are faced with the intracacies of human relationships--truly a book that teaches us to live and lead from our heart - in all aspects of our lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars peace at last July 25 2001
Format:Paperback
When I finished reading this book, I realized that I was causing my own stresses. It was really an eyeopener, to compare some of those stories, with my own experiences. I look at things now more differently, with a more positive attitude, and stay focus on the good in everyperson and every situation that occurs. I have discussed several areas of the book with my husband, and he's willing to read it. Peace at last!
