    I liked the simple descriptions and uestions about each type really zoomed out to show the big picture in a way I found helpfulI put Enneagram into the same category of usefulness as Myers Briggs Strengthfinder and other similar tests Not helpful when used to label stereotype or otherwise and dehumanize one another an excuse to be unloving towards those we perceive as different from ourselves but if used in a thoughtful way that respects the humanity and affirms the imago Dei of each person's uniue combination of strengthsweaknessesgifting it can be very helpful as an aid to understanding and communicate effectively with others It can also help us identify our own gifts Ultimately anytime I am discussing or studying issues of personality gifting I love to remember David Powlison's wise words We are all alike than we are different

    Truly enjoyed this sweet simple book on application of enneagram towards parenting children as a 9w1 happily married to an 8w9 it was neat to understand the ever changing style of personality of our own two young beautiful beings Proudly raising a brilliant and kind 2w3 styled four year old daughter joyful and inuisitive 5w6 styled three year old son the love of my life I are looking forward to learning their true personalities as our children develop and grow with age but we both love honoring who they presently are Recommended read for fellow adoring parents🌿

    This definitely gave me some insights into my work with kids and helped me to see things from their perspective but it felt a little too generalized I would have loved to see focus on us as parents and how our numbers impact our parenting

    I come back to this book time and again Immensely helpful

    I really enjoyed this book I love personality typing and the enneagram but assumed that I wouldn't really be able to use it with my children since a person's type doesn't solidify until adulthood Wagele gets around that by explaining that your children may be acting in a certain type as a child and then later change so it's helpful to notice what traits they're exhibiting but not to box them into a type too early I wouldn't recommend this as an introductory enneagram book because I just don't think it has enough information You really need to already have a basic understanding of the enneagram before reading it The lack of information is one of my main complaints about the book It's a short easy read which I know a lot of people like but I thought it barely scratched the surface of the topic I wanted a lot discussion of each type and how you can deal with challenges in each specific child The last chapter was frustrating because Wagele just started talking about various parenting challenges that had nothing to do with the enneagram I guess she thought they were important and they are; but in a way that actually made it worse that she seemed to be trying major problems in three paragraphs each If a parent has problems with a teenager and an eating disorder they need to be reading a book JUST about that not this book and speaking with professionals etc Other recommendations for smaller problems seemed exasperatingly obvious Wagele should have maximized the space she had and stayed in her lane However the parts that were actually about the enneagram were very informative and fun to read

    Not enlightening I have read books discovering my own Enneagram type and they were fantastic and enlightening I was curious and excited to learn about my child's type and how I could apply it and use it to build on his strengths I expected to use a similar method that I used to discovering my own This was where I read paragraphs and selected the top three that I relate to Then narrowing it down even and learning about the wings and arrow types However this book really seemed to be thrown together in a way that just basically says check these boxes if your kid has many of these they are operating in this type right now I could check off at least 50% of the boxes for each type there was no aha moment that made me feel like the author had captured my son's type Even if I had figured out which one is my son I would have been incredibly disappointed reading about how to handle certain situations each type has about 20 cartoons drawn throughout with about 2 3 sentences of advice stuck in between For example if my son is a peacemaker type I can simply help him do his homework by making him do it at the same time every day Period End of the education section I was thoroughly surprised at the rest of the parenting advice in the back of the book It made no sense to stick it in a book devoted to Enneagram types Advice ranged from just let them be themselves to if you use drugs your kid might try them too and I'm not kidding about the last one

    This book is interesting enough There are illustrations in every chapter and it makes for a pretty uick read The author refers to the 9 numberstypes as “styles” in children acknowledging that their type may change as they develop and grow After an introduction she devotes one chapter to each number and addresses particular topics What follows are 3 4 uotes about child rearing written from the perspective of each number It also includes a brief paragraph about basic tendencies of each number as a parent so it would seem helpful to know your own number before reading The book concludes with a section called “20 Additional Problem Areas” This is not so much connected to the Enneagram as it is general parentingchild rearing advice written from a seemingly mindfulness parenting perspective Perhaps I missed something but this didn’t directly connect to the rest of the book I imagine it might be helpful for some readers nonetheless I read this in one day don’t regret it but it’s not one I would immediately recommend

    As a former teacher and former child I picked up this book to see what the enneagram can do for children children who have uniue needs changing interests and undefined personality potential This book is light and easy with cartoons and short blips of text but it still has uite a bit of useful information It discusses how the different enneagram styles not types since types are settled at age 25 react to bed times meals new friends school etc It was uite eye opening to reflect on how my siblings and students morphed through out my experience touching on different enneagram numbers as they grew I also saw how I moved through the different numbers in my childhood before settling as a 1w2 in adulthoodI plan to pass along this book to my friends who are new parents because it’s just that good
