Review: This book is for anyone who is looking for tips for a positive upbringing of their children in healthy manner. I am not a parent myself but I enjoyed reading this book a lot. This non-fiction book is one of my best reads of this year. A renowned refractive eye surgeon’s new book suggests 99 one-minute methods to raise positive, confident and healthy children. I believe raising kids is a science. A child’s mind is a blank paper. So, it is important to understand this in a deeper way. Information, observations and experiences in the first 12 years of life are recorded in the subconscious mind and form a child’s personality we can influence kids in a positive way through these. These first 12 years of the children are also the father’s most crucial career years. Every child has within him seeds of greatness. All we have to do is to provide the right environment to nurture them. We do not have to reinvent anything. It is a very simple, easy to read, very usable tips that work to the deepest level. This should be read once every few months by the father’s and perhaps by the mothers too. If you too are like many dads, particularly the busy ones, you often wonder if you are doing everything you can to help your child grow up to live to his/her full potential, do not despair. I believe a good father can raise his child to be a stable, healthy, confident individual, composed in all situations, and one who responds rather than reacts to situations. The few essential tips shared by the author in his book are worth a mention- Encouragement is a cornerstone of a child’s development and the art of communication is based on understanding that nothing should be assumed. When returning home, a hug with a one-minute description of how much you missed them all day and how much they mean to you makes up for all the lack of time spent with kids. Don’t rush to check your email or text as soon as you get home. The first five minutes when you enter your house is most crucial and impactful. Don’t forget your spouse too here. Make a list of healthy fruits and vegetables and talk about one every day. Select a ‘vegetable or fruit of the week’ and have a one-minute talk on it for a week. This educates them about diet and nutrition, which is missing in the school curriculum and in the modern age, accounts for up to 40 per cent of health problems in childhood. The catch is to bring in awareness in a fun way. I thoroughly recommend everyone to read this book. In this world where everything is fast paced and parents have limited time this book is definitely of great help in dealing with the kids. Respect and appreciation to the author for attempting to write such an inspiring book.
