NEW – THE BOOK SHOP
I’ve been hard at work in the background lately…
…okay, I’ve been hard at work in the background SOMETIMES…
…starting to put together a collection of the books that have had the biggest influence in my life (or John’s) plus the books that I just enjoy reading because they’re funny or interesting.
There are links to buy the books on Amazon or Kindle.
HE’LL BE OKAY
Adding on to what I was saying in WHY BLACK LIVES MATTER IS BECOMING P*SSED OFF MOTHER about how angry I’d be if it was my son goading the police officer, check out the book by Celia Lashlie called He’ll Be Okay.
Celia was a prison officer in juvenile detention in NZ, who, as part of her research for her psychology degree, conducted in-depth studies as to why certain boys ended up in prison, and why a disproportionate number of them were from the indigenous community of NZ.
She explains why rules and consequences are crucial for boys of a certain age and what the result is when they don’t get that guidance.
It’s a fascinating read and particularly relevant right now.
