Raising good children is one of the greatest challenges we face as parents. The below post is from a program called "Empowering Parents".

I tell parents of young children that are struggling to watch Super Nanny with Jo Frost. She has a book out, too.

I think that is a wonderful introduction.

I like that Who do I Read thingy on your sidebar. It is obvious you go in alphabetical order. I am waaaaaay more random than that:)

i thought about doing numerical order but that would require assigning numbers ... and that is WAAAAAAAAY too much work.
