Parenting Book Club Summer Pick!

I asked my facebook readers which book they would like to see us read next  and then I read through what seemed like endless amazon reviews but kept coming back to this one. Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture I am part way through the book and I want to find the author and thank her for such a wonderful , thought provoking book. My husband probably doesn’t as he he constantly woken from sleep by me so I can excitedly tell him a new revelation that the book as sparked. Apparently 1am is not a cool time to talk about parenting. I think it’s only fair since both our kids woke me often to nurse at 1am . I finally just told him to download the book to his Kindle because it’s such a great read.

We will have a live Facebook chat August 27th to discuss. This gives us lots of time to read and reflect. Don’t worry of you can’t make the live chat because the questions will be posted along with the discussion for all those who can’t be there “live”.

Parenting Book Club – May Pick!

I hope everyone who read Playful Parenting enjoyed the book and more importantly found some new strategies for their family, I know I did.  May’s book is Raising Happiness: 10 Simple Steps for More Joyful Kids and Happier Parents by Christine Carter. This book was recommended to me ages ago by a friend when my son was starting to display a very scary turn towards perfectionism. I waited forever to get it from our library, and by then his perfectionist phase was back to a manageable level but the book was awesome. I will be re reading it and in 4 weeks I will post discussion questions on our Facebook to open it up to all of you are joining in this month to share your thoughts.
