书名：《孩子，我留什么给你 —— 一定要留给孩子的7大能力》
《孩子，我留什么给你 —— 一定要留给孩子的7大能力》 has a long title. The title in English is “Children, what do I pass down for you? — The 7 abilities that must be passed down to children”. The writer is a mother to two daughters. As a parent, she has wondered what to pass down to her children. I have wondered the same too. Is it money? Is it important moral value, such as honesty?
If you are wondering the same issue, this is a good book. From the title of the book, the author writes about the seven important abilities (to be exact, six abilities and time) that she wants to pass down to her daughters. While there might be controversy whether a child needs us since birth or later when they are children, I strongly support “since birth”, rather than “later when they are children”.
The first thing that newborns need is sense of security. Once they have the sense of security, they are good with whomever, whether a domestic helper or a grandparent. Time is precious, growing up is only once and you can’t turn back time.
For each chapter, one or two children books are recommended for you and your children to read together.
It is also a parenting book. For example, in Chapter 13: 小孩吵架，大人不要插手 (When children quarrel, adults do not intervene).
I like a sentence from Chapter 2 the most:
(The power of children allows us to humbly accept all the circumstances in life.)
The author writes about her father-in-law passing away in Chapter 2. Her two daughters have given her the power to give her husband the necessary support.
Have you ever wondered what to pass down to your children? If yes, this book will answer your question. Happy reading!
