Well, I want to tell you all about my new gig with Living My MoMent. Unfortunately, I don't have much to tell as I haven't figured it all out yet. LOL But it's a new review program I'm checking out for 2011. I'll be telling you more as I go along.
My first assignment is to tell you about a new book called Stop Reacting and Start Responding by Sharon Silver. I have received a download of the book and am exactly halfway through it. It contains a lot of good tips on ways to deal with your child(ren) in a way that will keep you from reacting in the heat of the moment and will build better relationships with your kid(s).
I can't say I am in 100% agreement with every last word in the book, but so far I have found a lot of great ideas. The book is an easy read and all the tips are broken down into easily digestable parts, each focusing on a different tip. One of my fave tips is one about teaching kids to react to an alarm clock. Here's where I have failed. Epic failure here folks!!! My 19 yo will sleep through an alarm clock for an hour and has more times that he or I would like to admit. I am going to try to train my four youngest using the simple tip from the book. I'll share more about the book in my next post.
