This book is an innovative, accessible and groundbreaking guide that will change the way adults communicate with children forever.

David Hemery believes that within every young person there is ‘a spark of greatness’ and a unique individual keen to fulfil his or her potential. Every adult is a guardian of that flame of talent. Using everyday scenarios and cartoons he introduces:

EFFECTIVE QUESTIONING and ATTENTIVE LISTENING – powerful and positive communication tools that deliver extraordinary results.
