Book Review – How Your Personality Makes or Breaks Your Child by Dr. Chayanika Singh
Have been worrying over your kid(s)’ behavioral patterns and wondering that despite you providing the best of facilities to them, why they are not listening to you? Well, here’s a book that will tell you that the problem really might not be with the kids. The real problem may be lying somewhere in the crevices of your sub-conscience where the experiences of your childhood with your parents lay.
This is not a parenting book for the light hearted or those who are looking for some sugar coated parenting advise on how to tackle your kids. This book is like those mirrors that show you the reality plain and stark in your face.
As per Dr. Chayanika Singh who has worked with parents and children for a long time and has a large repository of cases to refer in order to make her point. And her point is that we as parents while handling our kids more often than not get influenced by our own experiences as kids.
We have read and heard numerous times that we must not make our kids live for our dreams and aspirations. Similarly, the author emphasizes on the fact that we have to take utmost care that our fears, insecurities and agitations that we have inherited from our parents must not have a cascading affect our kids upbringing. Or else we might be risking creation of another generation of personalities laced with the same set of fears, insecurities and agitations. Only this time, they will be many-many times more severe.
This book by Dr. Chayanika Singh is an eye-opener in the true sense for parents who are receptive enough to understand the message the author is trying to pass on through numerous real case studies. Along with the reality checks and food for thought the book also provides anecdotes and a simple to-do list to get on track with your kids.
