Good point Juanita and I thought about that some but obviously not
enough. It won't be done the next time I send out the list for I don't
have time right now. Also I just added your "Liberated Parents,
Liberated Children, Your Guide to a Happier Family," by Adele Faber and
Elaine Mazlish, 1990. I bought the book that you recommended to the
list over a month ago but have not had the time to even open the cover
yet. But I will very soon. Thanks for the suggestion. Dale
