Book Description
How to use the Enneagram to become the best parent you can be
The Enneagram, a popular system of personality mapping, has helped millions of people get a better understanding of their motivations, talents, and problems. With this unique guide, Enneagram expert Janet Levine applies the system to parenting—and shows people how to develop richer, stronger, less stressful relationships with their children. A simple test helps people discover their Enneagram parenting type—Moralizer, Helper, Organizer, Dreamer, Rationalizer, Obeserver, Entertainer, Protector, or Peacekeeper—which corresponds to one of the nine standard Enneagram types. An insightful discussion of each parenting type—including lots of practical tips on interacting with a child who has a different type—helps people deepen communication, change self-defeating behavior patterns, and encourage the flowering of a child’s own personality.
