Values-based Education is the philosophy and practice that inspires both children and adults to be the best that they can be. After all, we are all growing, and it is not only our children that can benefit from education and development, but adults too. In his constant bid for better education, author Dr. Neil Hawkes advocates a positive mental attitude which aims to empower young people with a sense of their own future and their potential to shape it according to their own purpose. Neil discusses the benefits of caring for yourself and others, as well as providing medical evidence to support these ideas. He contextualises his philosophy by demonstrating ways in which teachers, parents and pupils can use it to create a happier and more productive learning environment by raising their self-awareness and self-confidence.
