impatience, bullying are now the sad norm in families
and schools. Children yelling at their parents, expecting
everything like it is their right and not a privilege
to receive gifts.
in schools is increasing but we lack the resources to
deal with it properly,” said Gabrielle Leigh, President
of the Principal Association for Victoria.*3
In today’s society children
are being unconsciously trained to disassociate themselves
from feelings of compassion, accountability, empathy or
respect. False heroes found in most video games, television
shows, internet and movies reinforce this silent training.
"By the time a child has reached 6 years of age,
their mindset and character has been formed and hardwired
in their brain. Any government initiative and program
to resolve behavioral issues after the age of 6 is fighting
against an already formed personality. It gets harder
as they are going against the current. The best way to
deal with the problem is to build them a solid foundation
before the age of 6,” says Tiberi
Book 1 in the Legends
of Altai series, contains 8 tales of wisdom and
values that contain an inspiring combination of philosophy,
ancient wisdom and storytelling.
"There is no
literature material that teaches children life’s values
in this form to children in today's marketplace. This
book should become part of the curriculum in every school.
It teaches great lessons, builds integrity, empathy and
values in young minds. A must have book for parents!"
