A famous proverb says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” A child hears and understands even before one eloquently speaks, proficiently writes, or logically reasons. Author, Everton Robinson capitalizes on this fact in his book, “A Child’s Guide to Wisdom.”
The book contains a collection of fifty principles strategically phrased for children to easily remember. It is designed to help parents instill in the minds of their children, principles that will result in a life full of wisdom and success. The definitions used are common-sense-based, and can be taught repetition-style until the youngsters have mastered the phrases and committed them to memory.
Robinson’s nearly 40 years of experience in church leadership has exposed him to various responsibilities that require him to exercise wisdom at all cost. He is a mentor of several church leaders and often helps in the counseling of couples. The challenges he has faced over the years have enabled him to ‘think on his feet’, while ensuring that he exercises sufficient caution, compassion and care in dealing with the problems, hurts and concerns of others.
The lessons he learned from his childhood and formative years as the son of a minister, along with his later experiences as a corporate professional and entrepreneur, serve as inspiration for the principles of wisdom presented in this book. He advocates that every child can benefit from the lessons provided by these principles, as they serve as an effective foundation in the development of future men and women of good character, strong integrity and productive service to their communities and to the world at large.
“A Child’s Guide to Wisdom” book copies are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and through major retailers.
