  • The Explosive Child: A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children

    Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren't attentionseeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren't passive, permissive disciplinarians. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach.

    What made the experience of listening to The Explosive Child the most enjoyable?

    For the first time, I felt like someone totally understood what it's like to parent my son. It was great to hear someone say, he's not a bad kid, he just needs help figuring out how to manage his emotions.

  • Maxed Out: American Moms on the Brink

    Story
    (59)

    Mothers are the breadwinners in two-thirds of American families, yet the American workplace is uniquely hostile to the needs of parents. Weaving in surprising research about the dysfunction between the careers and home lives of working mothers, as well as the consequences to women's health, Alcorn tells a deeply personal story about "having it all,” failing miserably, and what comes after. Ultimately, she offers readers a vision for a healthier, happier, and more productive way to live and work.

    Margaret says: "The definition of insanity..."
    "Great book, reminds me I'm really not alone."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes!!! So many people deal with the same issues - too much pressure and not enough time. We all need to remember we're all doing the best we can.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I felt like she was talking about my life.


    What does Katrina Alcorn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her direct feelings about what she went through was apparent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely BOTH - laughing a little, crying a lot ;-)


    Any additional comments?

    The book was a little slowly narrated, I was able to put it on 1.25 speed most of the time.

    In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

    If you could sum up The Four Agreements in three words, what would they be?

    Great Life Plan


    What does Peter Coyote bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love the voice, feels authentic to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The beginning/intro was a part that I could've skipped. But, the chapters that talk specifically about the 4 agreements are so true and really help to make it clear what is important in life & how to be better to yourself.
