Excellent book that makes you think

The change in the dynamic has been good for both of us, and I know her emotional state improved because she felt validated, as ...

This book is worth reading . Insightful about teaching women to just see sex for sex instead of wanting a commitment all the time.

Parenting Your Adopted Older Child: How to Overcome the Unique Challenges and Raise a Happy and Healthy Child
Brenda, Ph.D. McCreight
New Harbinger Publications
A helpful resource
I read this book prior to adopting my daughter at age four. I felt it was helpful in preparing us for what to expect, including emotional and behavioral issues resulting from past trauma. Like many older child adoption books, it can 'scare' prospective adoptive parents a bit and have them thinking "is this really something I can handle?" But that is good, because parents can not go into older ...

Drawing for Older Children & Teens
Jeremy P. Tarcher / Perigee
Drawing with Older Children

I find "Drawing with children" works better for them now, they are not ready for the freedom of choices offered in the Drawing for Older Children & Teens. I'm using ...

Piano music book review
I am indeed an older beginner. This book is fantastic for beginning piano players who have tinkered around in the past or have basic music reading skills. A nice piece that'll last and be on hand for basics. Piano playing is a good form of keeping our brain active and challenged, as well as helping young students increase their math skills. It's proven! That means it'll help me with my ...
