    I have no classes this summer, and was wonder if anyone could reccomend any good books. I have not read the explosive child yet, so that is on my list, but any others? I was thinking more parenting type books.

    I picked up a book called The Mother Daughter Project. I haven't gotten very far, yet.

    I just finished The Betrayal by an author I had never heard of before. He also wrote
    The Summons and a bunch of others. My
    husband and I both found Betrayal hard to put down. I have grabbed a few best sellers to take on vacation, too. DDD

    I asume you are looking for parenting type books but be sure and read something fun as well! Janet Evanovich is always a great read.

    Nomad, The Six Pillars of Self Esteem is by Nathaniel Branden, a protege of Ayn Rand.
    Fun stuff.

    Thanks, I have been reading some fun books. Dean R Koontz, the Odd series. Very cool and creapy. I actually have the out of sync child, have not finished it. I will have to see if I can find it. I also have the elephant in the playroom, I will have to finish that one too. Now I remember I have all these books. Cool. I just ordered the explosive child, and one that someone posted about mothers dealing with their anger. Thanks for the sugestions.
