    Click here for this week’s Straight Talk with Nick Lawrence

    You Are Not Special…by veteran teacher and author David McCullough, Jr., is an up-lifting, entertaining and realistic look at how we raise our kids, and perhaps unknowingly create a distorted and unrealistic image of themselves. David and Nick discuss: the dangers of over-praising, over stimulating, and over-controlling our kids. He encourages parents to allow their children to experience occasional rejection; to explore new challenges; to take reasonable risks, and even to allow an occasional failure, as a way to prepare them for the “real” world. The shear love of learning is at the core of this most amazing book!
