Parents who are deeply invested in their children's education can be hard on themselves and their kids. When exhausted parents are living the day-to-day grind, it can seem impossible to muster enough energy to make learning fun or interesting. Author Julie Bogart distills decades of experience - homeschooling her five now grown children, developing curricula, and training homeschooling families around the world - to teach parents how to make education an exciting, even enchanting, experience for their kids, whether they're in elementary or high school.

I really enjoyed listening to this book and think I will also buy myself a physical copy. Has so many great ideas, very understanding and full of wisdom. Highly recommend for homeschooling parenting or just considering different methods of education and parenting.

In The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin worked out general theories of happiness. Here she goes deeper on factors that matter for home, such as possessions, marriage, time and parenthood. How can she control the cubicle in her pocket? How might she spotlight her family's treasured possessions? And it really was time to replace that dud toaster. And what does she want from her home? A place that calms her and energises her. A place that, by making her feel safe, will free her to take risks. Also, while Rubin wants to be happier at home, she wants to appreciate how much happiness is there already.

I enjoy Gretchen Rubin’s books and podcasts and this one was no different. She does speak about herself a lot but shares some helpful insight as to how people can tailor a happiness project to suit them and has lots of little tips along the way. I found some of the relationship advice a bit questionable and maybe a little misguided in my opinion (especially marriage advice). But as with everything I took the things that resonated with me and I felt could add to the happiness in my life! Always worth considering what I can do better and love being inspired with new things to try out. Overall I liked it and would recommend.

  • How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

In a powerful new vision, Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that, in truth, vulnerability is strength, and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability - from revealing our true selves - we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.
