30 Day Book Challenge – Day 19
Day 19 – A Book that changed your mind about a particular subject (non-fiction)
Barbara Colorosos’ books “Kids are worth it” and “Just because it’s not wrong doesn’t make it right”.
Becoming a parent and being a parent can be extremely overwhelming, I have four children aged 11 through to 26 , and I’ve found these books to be a huge help , I love her no-nonsense, common sense approach to raising children. I don’t always follow through with what she suggests but I try.
Her books focus on helping kids develop their own self-discipline by owning up to their mistakes, thinking through solutions, and correcting their misdeeds while leaving their dignity intact. I have a highly spirited child at home (11) and have a grown “spirited” child (21) and these books really, really helped and do help, she gives you the tools to help parent “the spirited” child effectively. Sometimes, I’d really like to see someone handle Ms. Hay effectively, keeping my dignity intact 🙂
Barbara Colorosos books are filled with practical suggestions for handling the ordinary and extraordinary tribulations of growing up.
Her book “Just because it’s not wrong doesn’t make it right” is also a fantastic “self-help” book for parents.
