The Godmother of Silicon Family, dubbed the 'Panda Mom' (as opposed to the Tiger Mom), Esther Wojcicki's approach is about deep nurturing to encourage independence, responsibility, self-motivation and success in children - and adults!Wojcicki?s methods are the opposite of helicopter parenting and have been lauded by the likes of Steve Jobs and James Franco, who credits his success with Esther's belief in him. However, her greatest testaments are her three daughters who are all hugely successful- Susan is the CEO of YouTube; Anne is the Co-Founder and CEO of 23andMe; Janet is a leading medical researcher and Fulbright Scholar at UCSF. And most importantly, she has a great relationship with all three of them.Her secret? Relax. Talk to children as if they are adults. Allow teenagers to pick projects that relate to the real world and their own passions. Above all, let your child lead. How to Raise Successful Peopleis not only what every family and classroom needs, but also what any company and organisation needs to encourage the best in people.
