The Extraordinary Gift of Being Ordinary

Posted on August 4, 2022 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (381)

I was excited to see that Dr. Ron Siegel had put out a new book and this one does not disappoint. For those who are living a reasonably good life and find themselves discouraged and frustrated or others who are perfectionists and finding that this is creating problems, this is a great resource. Dr. Siegel uses a very conversational style and has many links to audio files that allow you do do more in-depth exploration. He explains the reasons why we get so tied up in knots and gives lots of suggestions on ways to respond to life that are helpful. I highly recommend this one.

Great Parenting Book

Raising Responsible, Emotionally Mature Children by Roger Allen This is a great companion book to Parenting with Love and Logic. Allen's book really speaks to the tone and attitude one needs to take when using natural consequences and other Love and Logic techniques. It is also an easy read. I highly encourage parents to get both books and read them before implementing Love and Logic techniques which can come across as sarcastic if the parent isn't careful. Here's the link to the book on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Raising-Responsible-Emotionally-Mature-Children/dp/0979783143/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=roger+allen+parenting&qid=1564610848&s=gateway&sr=8-2
