The godmother of Silicon Valley, legendary teacher and mother of three superstar daughters, shares her tried-and-tested methods for raising happy, healthy, successful children. There are no Nobel prizes for parenting or education, but there should be. How we raise and educate our children determines not only the people they become but the society we create. As we face an epidemic of parental and childhood anxiety, woj is here to say: relax. Revolutionizing the way we think about human behaviour, woj encourages us to abandon helicopter parenting. The best way to prepare our children for their future is to let them lead. By teaching them to problem-solve, to explore their passions, to develop resilience and enjoy working as a team you can equip them to be fulfilled, empowered and independent. Change your parenting, change the world.
