'Parenting Your Child Leader' by Darryl Bodkin



Foreward

Darryl Bodkin has written a wonderful treatise on child development and leadership. He writes from a child’s perspective on parenting and provides invaluable insight on the subject of leadership growth and development.

When I was 11 years of age, my life was torn apart by the loss of my father in a tragic construction accident. It was a defining moment for me. Fortunately, my godly grandmother sat down with me and told me that I had to be the leader in our home since I was the oldest child. From that moment leadership was thrust upon me. Reading this book has caused me to reflect on that landmark day in my own childhood when I started on a leadership journey.

I commend Darryl Bodkin’s book to you for your enjoyment and personal growth. I believe every parent who reads it will benefit from the lessons taught on parenting and will gain an understanding of how to encourage the development of leadership qualities in children. Proverbs 3:5–6 is a sterling reminder of the potential for vital Christian leadership within every child that is born into God’s big world.

Reviews
I am very pleased to endorse this book “Parenting your Child Leader” written by Mr. Darryl Bodkin at this very critical juncture in our human economy as it relates to leadership. This book is well positioned to address this pertinent subject, taking a rudimentary approach to the same.

The following quote from the author is testimony to the above, “The leaders who are tasked with confronting the concerns that face us today developed their skills and competencies from their experiences at home from parents and caregivers.”

May this thesis be so utilized that better leaders will emerge.

Darryl has always been bold enough to transform his potential into practical reality, for the time that I have known him he has always been one to motivate, encourage, teach, lead. It is therefore not surprising that he would write a book on leadership, specifically one geared toward the very ones who are naturally charged with the responsibility for raring leaders, parents. In his book Bodkin draws from his own experiences and that of selected biblical historical figures, who themselves were leaders, to give validity to his claims. He also gives very personable examples and relatable illustrations which not only clarify but also seals his position in the mind of the readers. I believe that this book is a very timely piece of literature as we witness the decay of a generation who are content with allowing various factors to make crucial decisions for them and are satisfied to simply follow what everyone else may be doing, whether right or wrong, rather than thinking for themselves and activating the leadership potential which lies dormant within them. Thank you Darryl for your obedience and your willingness to serve this present age!

This book is a must read, the author nailed it! As a parent it was really refreshing to get another angle on the topic of parenting. A definite eye opener that any parent can appreciate. This book is alive and real and should come in pocket book size too!

I highly recommend this book for everyone desirous of investing in a child’s life - which speaks volumes for our future. Darryl has presented a dexterous model of Parent-caddying which is highly effective and invaluable. It presents a strong foundation for our kids to maximise their unlimited potential.
