I'm Proud to Be Natural Me

Here's an interesting and lovely find. It is a picture book called I'm Proud to Be Natural Me. You can find out more about it here or by clicking on the picture above. 

Here's a description of the book from the website. 

I’m Proud to Be Natural Me is a beautiful picture book
for children ages 3 to 7. The jewel of this book, is that every
other page repeats the powerful phrase,
“I’m proud to be natural me.”

A child’s confidence begins to erode very early in life
so this narrative was written to build your child’s self-confidence with each turn of the pages. As this little girl embraces her beauty, it is my desire that your child will  embrace their own.

Battle Hymn of the Lion Mother

Yale Professor, Amy Chua’s new book ‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother’ has caused some serious controversy amongst parents in the US and probably in Europe too. It’s basically reignited a debate that’s always been going on. That is the ‘Strict versus soft parenting’ one. She just provided a new dimension to it. Her book is mainly talking about a specific style of parenting which might be seen as harsh within the Western parenting context. Parents using this style don’t subscribe to the ‘Everybody’s a winner’ or ‘there are no losers’ mantra sweeping schools and parenting methods in the West. This type of approach doesn’t praise children just for the sake of it just so their egos aren’t hurt. This parenting style expects results from children and puts them under pressure to perform and deliver.
