Raising our gifted children with Sara Troy and her guest Marc Joseph aka Gramps Jeffery, on air from March 15TH
Why Did I Write This Book?
Living this past year because of the pandemic caused by Covid19 in isolation except for being with family, gave me special time to watch and interact with the grandkids. What a trip!
All 6 kids have completely different personalities. The one thing they have in common is the sense of curiosity and how excited they get when they do accomplish something new. Watching them grow year to year and how they interact with each other is the basis for this book.
What goes through a toddler’s mind that parents are so desperate to understand? When does a toddler understand the difference between “me” and “us”? This book explores how a family finds out together.
As a baby boomer trying to understand how the world has evolved since I was 3 years old, is also part of this story. My parents did not have cell phones or the Internet or cable TV. My parents’ definition of discipline is quite different than parents of today. Has today’s world made for a better place for children to grow up? I will let you answer that question as you weigh how you were treated growing up compared to how we treat our kids today.
So, I wrote this book to read to these grandkids. Their reaction has been invaluable. As you watch them understand Jordan’s discovery of right versus wrong, you can see the older kids have gone through the same dilemma. And the younger kids don’t quite yet understand the concept of sharing. This whole experience, for me, has been priceless.
We are on 4 sites and 14 audios and 2 video platforms as seen here.
My first book, “The Secrets of Retailing…How to Beat Walmart” was written to help entrepreneurs and small businesses compete against the big guys. Here is a little more information about my book:
Arianna Huffington had read my book and then asked me to become a contributor to The Huffington Post. Here is a link to the close to 100 articles I have written for this publication:
The articles are about small businesses, education, family, the elderly, the homeless and several other nonprofit topics dear to all of us.
The reason I am sharing all of this with you is if you want to talk about other issues facing today’s parents and grandparents, I would be happy to give you my take on subjects affecting our kids.
Attached is a PDF of my children’s book and the reason I wrote this book.
