CJP Reviews

Recently, my son asked me what I was doing on the computer. At the time I was writing out a book review. I told him that after I read a book I like to write about what I liked and didn’t like. He saw the stars and asked what the stars were doing there. Asking if that meant it was “about space, or something”. I gave a breakdown of the meaning behind the stars, and he helped come up with “CJ’s Book Stars”.

This hilarious book combines (slightly altered) well known scientific facts with extremely accurate anecdotes that all parents can relate to.

I recommend this book, with its quirky stories and cute graphics to all parents, grandparents and caregivers; I guarantee it’ll make you chuckle.

Review: Mindful Parenting for ADHD

Mindful Parenting for ADHD: A Guide to Cultivating Calm, Reducing Stress, and Helping Children ThriveMindful Parenting for ADHD: A Guide to Cultivating Calm, Reducing Stress, and Helping Children Thrive by Mark Bertin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Growing up ADHD had such a negative stigma attached to it. Kids would tease; “That’s the boy with ADHD”, as if it was a contagious disease. While I’ve personally never had to deal with ADHD, I do know about compulsion disorders and mental illness, which are often viewed with the same stigma.

This book is a simple easy way to explain ADHD to parents regardless of whether or not they have children who have been diagnosed.

It provides tools for parents and makes communicating with children with ADHD easier.

Great read.

Review: Things I’ve Said to My Children

Things I've Said to My Children
Things I’ve Said to My Children by Nathan Ripperger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

As a mother to a young boy I can relate to a few of these already and the pictures were cute, but I felt the book was far too short and some of the ‘things said’ seemed more like a ‘you had to be there’ then general parenting.

Love the concept though.
