35th Anniversary Edition of The Winning Family
Big news! Book Launch!
More than a book on parenting, The Winning Family: Where No One
Has to Lose (Uplift Press) focuses on the personal development of parents along with the development of their children, shaping families characterized by joy and satisfaction, not manipulation and guilt. Mothering Magazine called this book “uniquely inspiring and non-guilt-provoking,” and one reader called it, “better than years of therapy.” In this new edition for the next generation, my voice and experience come to the fore.

Walkin’ with Joaquin
I #amwriting in the Oakland Hills, keeping the California Writers Club alive and well in its birthplace, Joaquin Miller Park. I’m working on a book about the poet based on my song, and blogging about the history and happenings in this local happy place.
In spite of the uplifting statements of Northeastern University in Oakland about gender and racial equality, they need to be accountable for their actions in destroying a minority serving historic women’s college.

I’m working on the 4th edition of The Winning Family with my mom, the famous Dr. Louise Hart. The last time we approached a publisher to bring it back into print, we ended up writing The Bullying Antidote! The message is the same: raising children with positive parenting (we invented that term) is the best prevention for all types of social harm.
