Late August Press
The Boobird of Happiness
What? We shouldn't want our kids to be happy? Not really, say Aaron Cooper, Ph.D. & Eric Keitel, M.Ed. Instead of focusing on their being happy all the time (causing them to pretend to be happy when they really aren't), we should teach them to accept the full range of feelings so they can handle disappointment, fear, anger, etc. The authors say that this "...want them to be happy" mantra ...

Instead of Education: Ways to Help People do Things Better
Holt great as usual
It's the sixth book of Holt I have read so far and probably the most syntetic; he outlines not only the problems but also the solutions. He has no mercy for knowing-better educators, T-eachers working not FOR, but ON students, S-chools full of fear and anxiety and humiliation, coercion, mindlessness, forced learning, carrot-and-stick attitude; and great appreciation for sensitive, competent ...

Connection Parenting: Parenting Through Connection Instead of Coercion, Through Love Instead of Fear
Best Parenting Advice I Have Found
I am a mom of two energetic, strong-willed boys. I have read many parenting books, blogs and articles in search of solutions to the problem of how to "discipline" them without losing my temper and my sanity and without being a marshmallow parent. I love this book. A key phrase it contains is, "bad behavior is an expression of an unmet need." Ms. Leo explains to us that when kids "misbehave," ...
Read This Instead
Funny, true, thought provoking
"Read This Instead" is funny collection of stories, observations and plain old opinions that will not only entertain but force you to think. Just like Federico's other 2 books, the writing is reminiscent of the classic Woody Allen books in the use of absurd images and word play. I enjoyed this book more than his last two and I think he should be encouraged to do more so buy this book.

How to Become a Sweet Old Lady Instead of a Grumpy Old Grouch
Marilynn C. Webber
Zondervan Publishing Company
Super book with good examples and tips
This is a great book. In fact, it's so great that I wanted to comment on it (my first review!). Each chapter give good solid examples on how to improve your life and how look at situations differently. Written from a Christian perspective, the tips given can be easily used in everyday situations. And her example of 'taking a day to fast from criticism' was great!
