The Enneagram offers a systematic approach to understanding people, and millions have found it helpful. By concentrating on parenting, the author is using the Enneagram for a specific set of problems, and it lends itself really well to this. Not that it is easy! When finding out which personality type you are, you need to be able to roll with the punches. It’s also quite easy to pop yourself or your children firmly in a type without really thinking about it, so you have to be thorough in your preparation. But this will help you understand yourself and them including your triggers and theirs. The author came to the Enneagram quite late but uses the perspective of “‘if only I’d known” rather well, so this makes for an interesting read even if your children have grown up!
