    Parenting the Investigator - Enneagram type 5

    Parenting the Investigator - Enneagram type 5

     Coming to you from my convalescence after an op  - with the Enneagram type 5.
     
    The fives have some great strengths;
    Firstly, their intellectual capacity and their ability to think deeply and critically are admirable. They are excellent researchers and often good problem solvers. They are naturally curious and have a thirst for knowledge. They can often see connections and patterns that others miss.
    They’re fabulous in a pub quiz, though sometimes their knowledge is specialised, so then they’re just fabulous in certain rounds.
     
    See if you recognise yourself, your child or your friends or partner...
     
     
     
     
    Introspective
    Analytical
    Curious
    Independent
    Thoughtful
    Reserved
    Cerebral
    Detached
    Perceptive
    Objective
    Focused
    Reclusive

    Parenting THE INDIVIDUALIST

A great listen!

Great advice for us all. Really informative episodes and very practical advice from someone with a lot of experience in parenting.

Elizabeth Milbourn ,

Highly recommended

I love listening to Madeleine’s advice and stories and I can highly recommend her book, Parenting for Life. All her strategies are tried and tested and help me get through the daily parenting challenges

Reassuring

I love listening to Madeline and her guests. I don’t find parenting comes naturally and I can be quick to loose patience but listening has helped put a few things in place with my toddler to help stop the temper tantrum. There are lots of great episodes that you can come back to time and again as your child grows. Madeline even offered to speak with me when I was struggling with what to do next in my child’s behaviour. It’s nice to hear other points of views and how a simple change of words can diffuse situations. Her voice is very calming and reassuring, well worth your time!
