Book Review: The Forgotten Garden

The Forgotten Garden By Kate Morton (2010)
Review by Elaine Rooker Jack


What it’s about, from the CD cover:  “A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, a maze, an aristocratic family, a love denied, a mystery – the Forgotten Garden is a captivating, atmospheric and compulsively readable story of the past, ghosts, family, and memories.”

Just Ask Joyce — Am I Winning?


Q: “How, as a new mother, can I stay away from competitive mothering? It seems like everything is a competition these days with parenting, and you can feel pressure from others for not doing things a certain way.”

Joyce:  Pressure from parents can make a child’s life pretty miserable, as well as their own. Setting expectations is nothing to scoff at, but a parent needs to keep in mind the negative impact premature competition could have on a child.

Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Summer Tutor


By ­­Stacy Westray Tackett


Are you wondering if you should sign up your child for tutoring this summer? I believe every child needs time off in the summer, but I also know the importance of summer programs that hone children’s skills and give them practice. Even the brightest kids can supplement their education over the summer.

Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Tutor
this Summer

1. Increases your child’s self esteem.

2. Decreases procrastination.
Procrastination leads to failure, and failure increases frustration for the child.

3. Helps parents learn.
Tutoring can help parents learn how to redirect or support their child’s efforts.

4. Instills trust.
A child often responds favorably to a tutor he trusts.

5. Makes learning easier for the child.
Tutoring builds a foundation that makes learning easier. Skills build on past skills.
