A smashing book launch party

The book launch party was a success because of my support crew. So many people came from so many areas of my life, it was like a big birthday party for me. I really appreciated the love, support and encouragement. The dog started reading the book and had some comments.

The kitchen sink faucet broke 15 minutes before the party started and stayed broken even though Bob tried to fix it. NO WORRIES! It was a wonderful party and launched the marketing efforts of “Raising Able: how chores cultivate capable confident young people.”

I really appreciated my daughter Casey’s contributions as official party helper. It made the party much more fun and less stressful. I felt supported and loved. My son Noah came to the party and I forgot to give him a chore. Oh well, he would have if I asked. I was happy he came.

Gonzo is reading my recently published book, "Raising Able: how chores cultivate capable confident young people." Gonzo is learning about how to get teenagers, teens, children and toddlers to behave, without praise, pay, punishment or reward. They only get allowances when they contribute the welfare of the family. Why not retire from being the house servant?

I'm not motivated by money, either.

Casey and Bob support me in getting ready for the party. A key element to reducing stress in families is ASKING FOR HELP. CAsey is making cookies for the book launch party and Bob is fixing the broken spigot. They are my support system. It takes a village to raise a child.

My support system for the book launch party. My eldest daughter Casey is making chocolate chip cookies and my husband, Reliable Bob, is fixing the faucet that broke 15 minutes before the party started.
