Description

In a world increasingly divided by politics and social issues, we need Mister Rogers more than ever. For three decades, his presence was a healing balm to children of all ages. And though he is no longer with us, we can all adopt his attitudes and actions as models for our own lives.

In this uplifting and informative book, Dr. Anita Knight Kuhnley shows us how to use the transformative psychological principles that Mister Rogers masterfully employed to make a difference in our own neighborhoods. Principles such as

  • listening for discovery
  • validating feelings
  • pausing and thinking
  • expressing gratitude
  • exercising empathy
  • practicing radical acceptance
  • using expressions of care

Imagine a world where these seven principles guide our interactions with each other. Sound heavenly? Neighborly? It all starts with you.
