stinkin_thinkin_book-coverToday marks the official launch of my newest book STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS.  I humbly ask you support me in helping kids become aware of, understand, and focus their thoughts. 

My goal is to have a positive impact on the lives of 1 million people by October 29, 2014, whether it is through the book, in workshops, during radio or TV interviews, or simply because you shared this blog post with your friends.  Can help me reach this sporty goal in whatever way you feel is right for you?

The challenges young people face today are absolutely unbearable, and I know this book can help kids find a more positive way to live life. After reading that the third leading cause of death among 10-14 year olds is suicide, I had to do something to help.

STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS, now available on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com, is full of fun activities designed to provide kids with real tools for changing negative habits. 

STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS will have kids rolling with laughter as they use the term “STINK Eye” to refer to seeing things worse than they really are, “STINK Bait” to refer to being so negative that other negative people want to hang around you, and “STINK Breath” to mean using negatively-charged language.  The exercises are easy and accessible and use materials any parent could get, such as Tic Tacs, index cards, poster board, markers, a great imagination. 

If you missed me live on Coach Café, you can click here to listen to the OnDemand version!  We talked about a whole bunch of STINKIN’ stuff and a few more serious topics like stories about bullying and the consequences of negative thinking.

It was a great show and thank you so very much to Kathleen and Estra for being Super Cool hosts!

Facebook used to rally 100 to stand behind boy being bullied – SALEM, Ore. – Friday was a rare day when a kid who’s been picked on confronted his bully with the support of 100 people who showed up to rally for him.  It started as a single Facebook message posted by Halsey Parkerson’s aunt.  She went to South Salem High School on Thursday to meet him for lunch. She overheard the bully telling her nephew that he doesn’t have any friends and that no one cares.  Click here to read the full story!

Here’s more information on bullying from the Pacer Organization and so I thought I would share.  “If not now, then when? If not me, then who?” Hillel the Elder

While doing research on my upcoming newsletter on the same topic, I found an interesting article from someone who was bullied in the 7th grade.  One thing we have to realize is that the effects of bullying can cause a lifetime of damages.  Click here to read this person’s bullying article.

More to come on Bullying soon.

Well, I am WAY behind in getting blog posts but part of it is because of the membership site going up and all the content I am updating every week.  I did want to give everyone a heads up that I am currently researching the topic of Bullying and should have something in a few weeks to share.  I am looking to have expert articles and content that will help you deal with bullying.  I will place a portion of the material on here but the remainder of the content will be reserved for the people enjoying the new membership I recently launched.  If you would like to learn more about it, click here and check it out.  I update the content every Wednesday and you can click here to see what has been updated so you don’t have to search through all of the pages of the site.

With peace and gratitude,
