Wisdom for my son and daughter is a book which I like to recommend to all kind of people, who are willing to increase awareness on a deeper level of thoughts on important life subjects. Great guide and introduction of the the most important topics in our lifes. I think it covers many valuable topics and explained it easy and compact. “Be humble, be kind, and smile.”

I was told about this book by a good friend who said it is a book that everyone should read. I bought it for 99 cents and was very pleasantly surprised. It has some great content. Some really healthy ideas on life. I’m going to make my kids read it after they leave school. I think it can really give them some good advice.

I like the idea of writing down the lessons you hope your children will learn. Reading this book was like one side of a debate. It felt like listening in on one side of a debate. I've always liked listening to others opinions.

I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway.
