Greetings everyone ! We’re on the road again. This time we’ve been hitting the sights of the North Eastern United States. In our minds there is nothing better than a road trip. Today we’ve visited Orchard House the home of Louisa May Alcott and completely walked around Walden’s Pond. All of this we’ll be sharing with you next week. Just a reminder that there is only a few days left of the Brian Selznick Giveaway. Be sure to tell all of your friends and good luck to all of you.


While we’re away I did want to share with you a wonderful event that I’m having the priviledge of speaking at.

Boys Alive A Free Online Event

Boys are in trouble.  The world is placing increasing importance on communication and relationship skills.  Most boys (and men) don’t have these skills naturally.

If you’re raising a boy, you’ve likely read all the books, watched countless videos, and been given advice by well-meaning family and friends…

But STILL you’re at a loss for how to raise your boy to be a confident man ready to serve the world with his energy, creativity, and skills.

We know you worry…and wonder…about your boy.  If you’re a teacher, we know you worry and wonder, too.

It’s time to blaze a new trail for your son.  Before you can do that, though, you have to know about:

·         His Education:  Schools generally disapprove of the reading and writing choices that boys make.  Add to that the rules that don’t fit his need to be physical, social (in his own way), and he withdraws, resists, acts out, and, yes, drops out.


·         His Inner World:  Knowing the way he learns best means you know how to motivate him.  Help him connect to his own inner wisdom and he’ll have strategies and strength to navigate the peer pressure ahead.


·         His Wider World:  Understand the pressures that your boy faces every day and find out how you can help him be the best man he can be.

Janet Allison and Kiva Leatherman have joined together to bring you experts from around the world!   There is so much noise out there – we’ve sifted and sorted for you – we’ve found the experts that will give you a new MAP of your son…they’ll help you blaze a trail of success for him!
