To label Prof. Zhou Hong as a “wonder parent” is not too much of a stretch. His parenting philosophy is “appreciation education”, which focuses on a child’s strengths and builds upon these positive traits to inculcate a healthy self-esteem in the child. It has not only propelled his hearing impaired-daughter into the list of top 10 women in China but provided a source of hope and progress for millions of families throughout the world.
The secret of appreciation education lies in infusing inspiration into a child. It is also teaches empathy, a lesson that is vital to understanding one another’s feelings and thoughts.
