Kathy describes OH GROW UP as being about “parenting with spirit” – strength, guts, soul – whatever “spirit” means to you. The result is a truly remarkable eclectic fusion of ordinary old-school middle-of-the-road methodologies, combined with extraordinary old-age-new-age philosophies … including Parenting’s 21 Golden Insights, 21 Magical Secrets, and 21 Universal Principles.
Of Course I Love You … Now go to your Room!
This book by my dear friend, colleague and mentor as such the wonderful Diane Levy, has been a great hit over many years. I just love it, love it, love it – probably because I love her! Learn how to become a parent to your child, not their friend. Our kids can make plenty of friends, but they can’t make Parents. Our role is guiding leadership, and Diane teaches this so well.
Go the F**k to Sleep
Okay this book is really naughty because there are a LOT of “F” bombs in it. But it is also hysterical, and accurate, and adorable, and crass. This is a great gift for a girlfriend or couple you know you can have a foul mouth around sometimes and they love you anyway. It was a client who first showed it to me, from a girlfriend who gave it to her. And oh my Lord, it is funny. But Warning: Its content is offensive too, so be careful who you gift it to. You can preview the manuscript by googling the title and Morgan Freeman because he narrates an audio version of it available on YouTube.
