New Book for Parents, Teachers and Caregivers

Published: Wednesday, 24 September 2014

Knowing Me'Knowing Me Knowing Them' is a helpful new book for parents, grandparents, teachers and other caregivers wanting to unlock their child’s potential. The vision of the authors is high: to assist their readers to “do the most important task in the world: raising children to be the very best they can be.”

The Aussie authorial trio—Tracy Tresidder, Margaret Loftus and Jacqui Pollock—is knowledgeable about the Enneagram tool and their presentation is practical, not overly technical and communicated with passion. They write with Aussie humour and earthiness but they connect regardless of the culture of their readers.

Why another book on parenting? Because the vast majority of people assume a generic personality on the part of parents and caregivers. The authors’ approach in this book is that insight into the personality type and style of the parent is paramount to knowing how best to relate to your children.

The Enneagram is used as the mirror to reveal personality type and the book makes sense to those who are unfamiliar with this tool.

The book has this simple and clear structure that makes it easy to read:

Step One: Discover your personality type

Step Two: Explore how your type influences your parenting style

Step Three: Unlock your child’s potential

'Knowing Me Knowing Them' is sure to evoke some surprising ‘Ahas’! It is a significant book for parents who want to grow and caregivers who want to see their children flourish.
