Enticing in style, provocative, and even amusing, this book is a timely reflection on how to move from the Prussian-Industrial model of education based on authority and control to the one where children own their learning process.”

– Isaac Getz, leadership professor, ESCP Business School, author of Freedom, Inc. and Leadership without Ego

It seems like every one of us parents is troubled by one concern: How to prepare our children for a world that is so uncertain and unpredictable.

The world has changed, it’s about time our parenting changed along with it. Forget everything you read and heard about the “right” way of parenting.

There is a new model of parenting that invites us to discover our creativity & innovativeness and enable our children to dare & imagine.

Reinventing Parenting invites us to become the parents our children need us to be: Creative parents who inspire their children to be curious & resourceful. It deals with the most crucial topics, such as:

  • Help your child develop their own vision in life
  • Undermine rigid assumptions about what it means to be a “good” parent
  • Stop fearing screen time and video games and turn them into a window of opportunity
  • Bring the work problem-solving version of yourself into your home and family life
  • What can we learn from the world’s leading YouTubers
  • Go from rule-based parenting to value-based parenting
  • Don’t be afraid to go against the tide – your gut instincts are still your children’s greatest asset
  • Turn your parenting into an enjoyable and guilt-free zone
