All of us have drawn conclusions in our childhood: impressions about ourselves, the world and our place in it. These childhood conclusions still produce thoughts that mark our behaviors. With examples from her private practice, Schuitemaker shows how childhood conclusions work and how to turn them around into a positive outlook.
The authors discuss qualities that characterize eldest daughters and why, in spite of being more intelligent, verbally proficient, and motivated to perform than their siblings, they doubt they are good enough. This book demonstrates how firstborn girls become who they are, how to give them more freedom, and the best ways to support them.
Based on a global survey and more than 50 interviews with childless men and women, Schuitemaker explores the life choices people make around having children as well as alternate ways of finding purpose in life, enabling readers to gain insight into the worldwide trend of people who lead a self-fulfilling, childless life.
