In his travels, lectures, and seminars, the book John Gray has been most often asked to write is a parenting book. After years of serious thought, workshops, and practical applications, John Gray has created a brilliantly original and effective system that he calls positive parenting, for children of all ages, from birth though the teenage years. Completing the notion that Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, he adds. . .and Children Are from Heaven.

John Gray has discovered that children today do not need to be motivated by fear of punishment. Instead, they can easily be motivated by reward and the natural, healthy desire to please their parents.

Children Are from Heaven covers the different skills of positive parenting to help improve communication, increase cooperation, and motivate your children. Central to this new approach to parenting are the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again:

  • It's okay to be different
  • It's okay to make mistakes
  • It's okay to express negative emotions
  • It's okay to want more
  • It's okay to say no, but remember mom and dad are the bosses

When these messages are put into practice—and John Gray shows you how—your children will develop the necessary skills for successful living: forgiveness of others and themselves, sharing, delayed gratification, self-esteem, patience, persistence respect for others and themselves, cooperation compassion, confidence, and the ability to be happy. With this new approach, you will be allowing your children to develop fully during each stage of their growth.

John Gray's reassuring message is that children are from heaven and they already have within themselves what they need to grow. Your job as a parent is to support that process. By applying the five messages and different skills of positive parenting, your children will receive what they need to become more cooperative, confident, and compassionate.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In the hypnotic style of a therapist, Gray gradually replaces parental advice with empathy, and an emphasis on obedience with an emphaisis on cooperation, supplying a new repertoire of one-liners and age-, gender- and temperament-specific suggestions along the way. While placing the entire responsibility for children’s behavior on their parents’ shoulders, this book essentially simplifies the business of parenting in order to enable children to grow into their strongest, most responsible selves.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Though he holds children accountable for their actions, [Gray] focuses on preserving a child’s sense of security, which he believes is essential for children to make self-directed choices, rather than just complying begrudgingly with the demands of authority figures. He is eloquent about the differences between boys and girls and between children at different ages and points out crucial considerations for providing parenting structure and support. One of the best audio guides available on staying centered and effective as a parent.”

    " I really enjoyed this perspective on a different way to raise children. We can all stand to learn some of these lessons, as I think many of us were raised with spankings, wooden spoons, and threats about waiting until our Dad gets home... I definitely want to read more on this subject. "

    " I feel my parenting over the last four years has been secretly video-recorded, watched and analyzed, and then the information gleaned and sent back in time to be put into this book. This book has helped encourage me and offer solutions to problem areas in an amazing way. "

    " Would love to give up sooner... But I bought this book so far. I am not myself when i read this book, neither was the example is special nor realistic in making the parent move as a leader. No age is specific addressed to the treatment, so that alone left me confuse. Hopeless. I realize....i'm just not one of those parents who could put up an effort to turned her head around at some methods that are simply wasn't in her traits. Am gonna have to put this down for a while, the explanations are even exhausting to comprehend, example : how time outs are actually different than giving your kid a time to cool-off. (????) but hey...it's nice to know a different approach of parenting... It really is, somewhat inspiring at certain edges. "
