I don't tend to read "self help" type books. Not sure why. But I don't.

But I do agree with that quote regarding punishment. I think that despite our many differences, from what you say on your blog, you and I have very similar attitudes to parenting.

Suzanne

Amen Sista. I too have read many many books on parenting over the years. (raising/training dogs too, because I believe everyone should behave!)
I will look for this one in the library. Sounds great, and I think I have a good friend that could BENEFIT from this too.

hen

Sounds very interesting - there are some seriously pushy parents in Bath!

I tease my best friend that she is a 'Helicopter parent' - constantly hovering -

we say : "Whacka Whacka Whacka" (feeble imitation of a helicopter) ....and she knows to loosen her grip!

Mary Alice

That has actually been sitting in my Amazon wish list for awhile now. Perhaps I will get to it later this summer. Probably should be required reading for all school counselors in the making?

Mama Zen

I've heard that this is really good. I'll check it out!

jenn

i'm always looking for a good book and especially one on parenting and how to do it better. :) i will be stopping by the book store next time at the mall to get this book and will let you know what i think of it. :)

thanks for the referal on it. :)

hugs!

LifeAsIKnowIt

Thanks for the recommendation. I will look for this.
I especially like books on raising boys so if you have any good ones that you've read and want to recommend...?

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

You lost me at "introspection," but had me back at "paid gig."

Come on, Jenn, can't I just sit on the sidelines and judge the other mothers? Please?

And, really? You're getting paid for writing? I'm swooning. Now I love you for your blog, your excellent haircut, and your writer's pay!

HRH

Sounds like somthing that would be VERY useful...

Heidi

I felt like you were talking to ME. I am most definitely picking this one up. Can't wait for the ensuing discussion!

Heidi

Kristen

I always love a good book, I will check this out.
Love your header, by the way. Cute!

CC

Who me??!!

Thanks for the recommendation!

Shelia

I read all. the. time. so I love a good book recommendation. I'm not a mom, but I'm a teacher (going on 20 years), so I'll check it out.

Then I can "judge" the moms (LOL) like Cheri asked to do! (That was supposed to be funny. I'm too tired to know if it worked.)

Amen, sister! From one Proud-to-be-a-Pain Mom to another one. But it's too late for me; my youngest is 19, so the damage is done. I'd have another kid to try again but...Oh, wait, no I wouldn't.

Fortunately my kids survived my parenting.

Jennifer H

Sounds interesting. I'm sure there's a mirror inside it somewhere that would show me my own reflection!

Melissa

Hmmm...I think I need to check this one out! It should be in circulation over in my neck of the woods, too!

AlphaDogMa

I'm a Proud-To-Be-A-Pain mom, too!

I read this book a few years ago, and LOVE it. It's less of a self-help book and more of a survival guide that will forever change the way you look at the PAC mummies and their dramas and power grabs.

Mel @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy

Amen! I will take your recommendation as I think it will help me next year with the She Who Shall Not Be Named we discussed last night. I'll let you know what I think of it.

And congrats!!!! on the paid gig. That's awesome!

JCK

I am definitely going to add it to my list. Thanks for the great referral.

And ....congrats on your paid critique!

Just Jamie

I'll be adding this to my collection. Thanks.

Susan

Ooooo...can I be on the panel of judges? That sounds like so much fun. (well, as long as I'm not the judged!)

I'll put this on my library list. I'm not so into parenting books as my kids are nearly "done" but it certainly couldn't hurt.

Congrats on the gig, btw and I LOVE your warm cozy home. :)

magpie

thanks - that sounds interesting and potentially useful.
