1st ed. published 2020. 283 pages Rights sold: Turkey
Germany's children are under stress and so are their parents. What is the reason for that and what can parents do about it? For Mona Kino, the answer is empathy: inner balance is a result of empathy, for yourself and for others. Only those who are in tune with themselves and who listen to their own needs can be open to others. The good news: empathy can be encouraged. Many examples, based on scientific studies and personal experience, can inspire parents to enhance relaxation, creativity and dialogue within the family.
This book was written in collaboration with the family therapists Jesper Juul and Helle Jensen and the writer, teacher and dancer Peter Høeg. Exercises to encourage resilience, mindfulness and the zest for life in the family are fun and easy to do: in everyday life, at the traffic lights or for 5 minutes under a tree in the park.
