How To Be A Happier Parent

How To Be A Happier Parent

An encouraging guide to helping parents find more happiness in their day-to-day family life, from the former lead editor of the New York Times' Motherlode blog. In all the writing and reporting KJ Dell'Antonia has done on families over the years, one topic keeps coming up again and again: parents crave a greater sense of happiness in their daily lives. In this optimistic, solution-packed book, KJ asks: How can we change our family life so that it is full of the joy we'd always hoped for? Drawing from the latest research and interviews with families, KJ discovers that it's possible to do more by doing less, and make our family life a refuge and pleasure, rather than another stress point in a hectic day. She focuses on nine common problem spots that cause parents the most grief, explores why they are hard, and offers small, doable, sometimes surprising steps you can take to make them better. Whether it's getting everyone out the door on time in the morning or making sure chores and homework get done without another battle, How to Be a Happier Parent shows that having a family isn't just about raising great kids and churning them out at destination: success. It's about experiencing joy--real joy, the kind you look back on, look forward to, and live for--along the way.

The Chicken Dance

The Chicken Dance

Welcome to Horse Island, where knowing about chickens is the key to popularity and eggs are more valuable than money. This is where eleven-year-old Don Schmidt lives on a chicken farm with his parents. He is sort of unpopular, both at home (where his mother refers nonstop to his talented, dancing, dead sister, Dawn) and at school (where the other kids call him "new kidÂ?? even though he's been at the school for several years).With nowhere else to turn, Don begins a friendship with the chickens that live outside his window on the family's farm. Then one day, Don enters the chicken-judging contest at the local dairy festival and becomes the youngest person in history ever to win. This spurs a dramatic chain of events that makes Don the most popular kid in town. But it also leads him to discover that his parents have been hiding family secrets. Jacques Couvillon has created a refreshing story with a character who is charming, sincere, and just so funny. The Chicken Dance is an entertaining page-turner that readers will not want to put down.
