Book Beginning: ParentShift: Ten Universal Truths That Will Change the Way You Raise Your Kids by Linda and Ty Hatfield & Wendy Thomas Russell



In the early years of the twentieth century, an Austrian doctor and psychotherapist named Alfred Adler hypothesized that personality disorders, criminal behavior, high divorce rates, and other types of adult suffering could be traced directly back to childhood experiences.

ParentShift: Ten Universal Truths That Will Change the Way You Raise Your Kids by Linda and Ty Hatfield and Wendy Thomas Russell.

This is an interesting new book and I am just getting into it. I have grandchildren, not kids of my own, so my interactions with little kids are limited, but I am learning a lot.

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.


TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

Every generation has a must-read book for parents. When my girls were young is was Dr. Brazelton, when my parents were raising me it was Dr. Spock. Will this one catch on with young parents, do you think? My Friday quotes and a short review of WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE

Sounds very thought-provoking. Having already raised my kids, I don't see a need to read it though. :-) I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!

Great idea about the box. We used to do that too.

Sounds like it could be an interesting read for parents.

I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.

Learning to proofread your work yourself is a a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.
