***ABOUT THE BOOK*** Stop! You're not raising a child...You're raising a future adult. *Can you see what's wrong with this picture? There's a child where an adult should be. And that's the point.We speak in terms of 'raising children,' but the thought we need to keep 'front and center' is that we're raising future adults.*We interviewed numerous successful adults in search of common themes. We studied their life stories and compared them to biographies of other well-known high-achievers. A pattern emerged. Successful adults share a common background, something we call the Four Foundations of Adult Achievement.*In the parenting book, What Kids Need to Succeed, these principles are illustrated through inspiring stories that help parents think about ways to prepare their own children for a bright future. When you lay the groundwork for these foundations, your children start to develop attitudes and habits shared by successful adults. ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR*** What Kids Need to Succeed: Four Foundations of Adult Achievement was authored by father-daughter team Harry S. Patten and Andrea Patten.*HARRY developed the sales skills that are the foundation for his business by selling Kirby vacuum cleaners door-to-door. Since 1962, this self-made millionaire has become the foremost buyer and seller of rural and recreational land in America. He is a father and a grandfather.*Throughout her life, ANDREA Patten has distinguished herself as a creative problem-solver. In addition to being a Mom, she has spent most of her adult life working in human services, both in the public and private sectors. Her particular area of expertise requires an entrepreneurial mind as she has played a key role in helping organizations bring such innovations as bilingual programming, family treatment and networking for comprehensive client care. ***MORE INFO*** http://www.ILoveAuthors.com and http://www.whatkidsneedtosucceed.com
