Time Out for Nurture Shock!

Nurture Shock

This past weekend, I had the chance to read Nurture Shock. I came upon it because Chris from Book Dads sent out an e-mail to the Book Dads contributors to see if anyone had read or was interested in writing a review about it. I went right to Amazon, read the summary and some comments, and decided to buy it right away. So glad I did! For me, this book showed how much Nurture Matters and what an awesome responsibility we have as parents and/or teachers, because what we do or say or don’t do or don’t say can have such an impact on the lives of our children.  I was able to finish it over the weekend and then wrote my second book review for Book Dads! 🙂

This morning, I noticed that someone had commented on my review. I felt like I needed to respond and hoped that person would get the chance to read my response. Then tonight, I received another comment… from one of the co-authors!!! How COOL was that? 😉 SO COOL! This is the kind of experience I wish for our students to have in school. To make contributions to online communities and to have their voices heard. It’s such an awesome feeling! 😉
