Genre: Parenting



Notes to My Children is a keepsake of candid life lessons that Shaun Hay has shared with his daughters from time to time. These are the sort of lessons that the author wished his parents had shared with him and his siblings when they were growing up, for if he had been privy to them, some of the choices that he had made along the way might have been significantly different from what they were.

To make it easily relatable, the contents are presented in four key categories: Self-awareness, relationship with others, career and life. Together, they cover topics as wide as knowing and understanding yourself and your beliefs, values, attitudes, habits and character; finding love, building and developing a loving relationship with your spouse; choosing a career that energises and motivates you, knowing how to work hard and smart to build traction in your career; as well as defining success in a more holistic and encompassing way which facilitates and supports your quest for happiness.

Praise for the book

I reckon that when we heal, strengthen or redefine our most intimate relationships—with our parents, children, and grandchildren—we heal the entirety of our being and impact all other relationships in our lives.
