The Glass Castle: A Memoir
If you ever have felt sorry for yourself--read this.
I grew up poor with a father who was absent most of the time and was drunk all of the time. After reading this book, I realized how much worse it could have been. This was an eye opener as to how bad things can get. I am successful and the author of this book also made something of her life. It just fortifies the fact that when your survival instinct kicks in--you can do it! I highly ...
What to Expect When You're Expecting: 4th Edition
Algonquin Books, 2008
the only book you'll need
After purchasing muliple books, I found that this was clearly the ONLY book I needed. This book is somehow laid out perfectly- meaning, just as I was wondering about something, it seemed to be in the very next chapter. Clear and easy to understand, I felt the authors did not speak down to the reader, rather reassured me that none of my concerns are silly. They had a great way of keeping me CALM ...

Sh*t My Dad Says
HarperCollins e-books, 2010
Laugh out loud....
The first chapter of this book knocked my socks off, because I was not use to the level of profanity. It took a little getting use to, but I highlighted so many funny quotes in this book. If you are looking to dig deep and self-reflect...this book can do this for you through its humor. Completely worth your time...as long as you are not easily offended!!

If you are unsure if you should read this...Don't be! I did not always agree with the personal ...

1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 (123 Magic)
Parentmagic, Inc., 2004
It works great - IF you do it right - Points I learned from a live demo
I had the benefit of attending a live seminar that presented this system *and* being selected as the "countee" in front of about 400 people. I experienced, first hand, the complete absence of emotion that must be used when counting. The "counter" had a totally deadpan expression, drained of all emotion. The effect was to emphasize the "what" (count) and not allow for any interpretation of the ...
The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work
Three Rivers Press, 2002
The best insight on relationships and how they work
After 25 years of marriage, the relationship between my wife and I was probably typical of many marriages - we were living parallel lives under a single roof, united by children and our common goals in raising them. We were physically present but not emotionally present in our relationship; we lacked the depth, the emotional bond we once had. If you have ever tried marriage counseling, you ...
Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child
Ballantine Books, 2009
The Best Baby Book I've Read
This book's techniques worked the very first night we tried them. Our daughter slept an entire night for the first time in her 9 1/2 month life (and has done so for several weeks since). She used to wake up several times during the night and wake up for the day at 4:30-5:00 a.m. She now sleeps 12-13 hours at night (6 p.m.-7 a.m.). I wish someone had recommended it to me sooner or that I had ...

Baby 411 4th edition: Clear Answers & Smart Advice For Your Baby's First Year (KINDLE edition)
Windsor Peak Press, 2009
It's a Keeper!
My son is 3 months old, and this book has been an excellent resource. We've found the content to be accurate and comprehensive, and it matches information provided by our pediatrician and presented in pre- and post-birth parenting classes we've taken. It has a direct and somewhat more formal and clinical approach than the baby bargains book (which was also very helpful!). We purchased other ...

NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children
Essential reading for parents
This book is wonderful--every parent (and teacher) should read it! I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in child development, so I am very aware of the literature discussed in this book. Even so, the way the authors present the information is inspired. It draws in the reader and helps him/her understand the way the research is done as well as the applicability of the research. I liked ...

As a pastor and a father of 2 boys and 2 girls, I have been richly blessed to see my girls move into their teens and remain pure and faithful. And in "Bringing Up Girls" best-selling author ...
