"... far more than her personal story, Engaging Today’s Prodigal equips readers with a better understanding of a prodigal’s motivation, useful responses that won’t prevent reconciliation, clear boundaries to protect themselves and other children, actions to take when you know you have contributed to the problem, and the value of realistic expectations. With effective wit and humor, Carol Barnier provides material relevant for churches, parents and even the prodigals themselves."
"A great resource for teaching a child who struggles with focus. From the mother of an ADHD child, this book is a welcome resource for parents struggling to teach their energetic and spirited children. Parents will receive not only support and understanding from someone who's been there, but will learn fun, active, and effective ways to teach everything from reading to history. This book includes creative reproducible activity aids that you'll want to use right away, a phonics program where every lesson is a quick game kids love, instructional games, manipulatives, and motions that will help you work with, not against, your child's learning style. Plus math strategies that make even a workbook fun, and many more effective, fun solutions to the daily dilemma, "how to I teach my child tomorrow?"
"At last, a gloriously unregimented mom shares stories and strategies that help other highly distractible moms run a genuine, joyful, and successful home and homeschool! This books offers lots of practical tools to keep chaos at bay, and helps moms develop their strongest qualities - qualities that perhaps have been seen as weaknesses. Best of all, you will find new reasons to be excited about who you are, and you will discover how the qualities you possess are true gifts from God that make you a real asset to your family. Learn how working with your personality traits instead of constantly fighting against them makes it possible for you to: keep track of items that get lost at the worst possible moment, actually arrive on time or even early, access whatever information you need whenever you need it, limit the pesky interruptions that get you off task, get stuff to organize itself so you have more time to spend with your family, and organize and run a "delight-driven" home and/or homeschool."
The Big WHAT NOW Book of Learning Styles by Carol Barnier
"Many of the books on learning styles devote 98% of their text to identifying learning styles, then spend the remaining 2% telling you how to apply this knowledge. They are long on diagnosis and short on prescription. Carol Barnier knows from her own experience and from interactions with educators all across the country that while people are certainly interested in the "why," they are in urgent need of the "how," or the big "what now?" They need perfectly clear and practical information that can be applied tomorrow. In The Big What Now Book of Learning Styles, parents and teachers will find an emphasis on "what to do about it." This book supplies hundreds of activities keyed to learning styles for easy access and application covers practical strategies for success in spelling, writing, math, history, geography, science, and more."
