A Little Help With Your Compass
Words of Wisdom for the Grandchild I May Never Meet
by Sheldon Thomas

A Little Help with Your Compass is a guidebook for teens and young adults wanting to grow into the next phase of their lives with integrity and self-awareness. Written as a summation of Thomas’ advice to his own son, it is full of practical real-world suggestions and reflections to help you develop character, discover your strengths, and navigate inter-personal challenges. Thomas became a father at fifty, and he enjoyed both the closeness of the parent–child relationship and the imparting of wisdom that is often the role of a grandparent. From this unique vantage point, he developed a very reflective approach to parenting. His son urged him to capture his guidance and encouragement in this intimate and timely manual.
