When you want to raise kids who are conscious, critical thinkers with a deep understanding of the world around them, it is important to model that behavior yourself. A great way to do that is through reading! These books not only explore complex topics and perspectives but also provide a great opportunity for parents and kids to discuss what they're reading together.
I feel parents need to be aware of different books that will teach their children empathy, and respect and help them develop habits for a lifetime of learning. Why should the best self-help books be left to adults? When parents read these books it helps them engage in thoughtful conversations with their children and develop closer relationships.
