  • A must read for parents and grandparents

    Audrey Monke, the mother of five and owner of Golden Arrow Camp in Sierra National Forest in CA, has shared with us what she has learned in her 30 years of kids, camp, and campers that we can implement in our everyday world to ease the lives of our youngsters. Her positive attitude and willingness to accept youngsters at their own self-recognized level are telling. It is so easy to lose the connections we share with our kids in the day-to-day hassles of life by forgetting that they also have opinions and thoughts and dreams that we might overlook when the trash doesn't get taken out and no one can even see the floor of their rooms and bills need to be paid and the laundry is piled neck high. Ms. Monke's suggestions are spot on and ones we all need to re-enforce in our everyday lives. Even her chapter titles will spur you on to looking at life a little differently - and her words will inspire you as they have me. This is a book I will gift to my great nieces, the new mothers of the world of tomorrow. I wish it had been written many years ago. I think the most important information is in how to recognize and handle bullying from the point of view of the Bullier and the bullied. But also the chapter on recognizing the growth and capability of children as they mature is essential. And the knowledge that 'grit is grown outside the comfort zone.' And 'make it cool to be kind.' All parents and grandparents need to read this book. And send a kid to camp... I received a free electronic copy of this self-help book from Netgalley, Audrey Monke, and Center Street Publishers. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this book of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work.

    Thanks for your feedback!
