Mind you, this is not teaching children to be optimistic despite any evidence to the contrary, but a way of dealing with adversity in an adaptable, merciful manner. "Mercy" keeps springing to mind because for many, the inner dialogue is crushing. If this helps alleviate that and point you in the right direction, it's done its job.
My mother was convicted of child neglect when I was ten years old, this, only months after my father had died of a heart attack. Without a better alternative and my mother's incarceration, I became a ward of the state. Today I hold an MBA and operate a successful consulting practice. My mentors were my caregivers, teachers, coaches, and fellow orphans.
This book based upon the work of Dr. Seligman holds, I believe, a very important key to success. Hope or optimism is the thing without which one does not make an effort to change their current state. By starting early in life and teaching our children, youth, and young adults how to take charge of the negative thoughts and influences there is every reason to believe that they will be empowered to take control themselves. This book is prescriptive in how to apply the lessons learned from practical research and how to make a difference in the lives of people of all ages. Easy to read and without the need for a deep understanding of psychological jargon, any parent, mentor, or influencer of young lives can apply the lessons provided here. I have recommended that the therapists, staff, and volunteers at my organization each be provided copies.
BUT I have a number of friends who found his writing supercilious and the book hard going. I think there are other books that are probably easier to implement for parents - the whole brain child, Siegel and how to talk so kids will listen ... Faber
I think this book explicitly asks parents to assess themselves in a way that is confronting (something I love), so I can see why this hits nerves.
I think if you are truly interested in preventing depression in your children, this is a must read. I would probably like a bit more about teaching empathy included within the book, and I would love further follow up on the Geelong Grammar PPP results in the next edition.
