With this groundbreaking work, renowned educator Jenifer Fox argues against the flawed and maddening paradigm that "fixing"kids' weaknesses is the way to achieve success. Rather, Fox promotes focusing on kids' natural inclinations in three interdependent areas: Activity Strengths, Relationship Strengths, and Learning Strengths. Pairing inspiring firsthand accounts of success with practical workbook tools, alongside an outline of the award-winning strengths-based Affinities curriculum Fox has implemented in her own school, Your Child's Strengths is a user-friendly and indispensable guide for parents, teachers, and administrators alike."Brilliant, innovative, enormously practical . . . this book could change the world."
-Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Driven to Distraction
"Jenifer Fox has extraordinary insight into the minds of young people and an unshakable belief in their potential. . . . This is one program that the schools must have."
-Marcus Buckingham, from the Foreword
