THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What is your favorite lesson learned, or quote, from a recent book you’ve read?


I have been reading Out of Control: Why Disciplining Your Child Won't Work by Shefali Tsabary, PhD. In the opening chapter, the author outlines her philosophy that sets the foundation for the rest of the book. It really hit home for me because I feel exactly like the parents she describes: I take away privileges and find myself often yelling and being ignored, but I keep trying the same thing over and over again to get the desired results from my kids. There must be a better way.

What are you musing about this week?

Interesting book. Although my son's childhood days are behind us - I don't recall anything that worked consistently, I was always changing it up.
