It will help you to: Tell the difference between childlike and childish behaviour in yourself and others. Understand what leads to the sayings, Oh Grow up, Act your age and many others. Recognise when a frightened child can hijack an adult body. Know why EQ (emotional intelligence) is not the same as IQ. Discover the healing in accepting what cannot be changed.

Practical examples

There are plenty of good, practical examples throughout following theory and explanations. I found many of my own behaviours in this book and how I could develop these.
