Most of my recent reflections and thinking (apart from how to get rid of my constant sore shoulder and RSI typing pain) has been about parenting.

Reading a great book from this stack by Alfie Kohn. It's the second from the top - called Unconditional Parenting - about why praise and punishments don't help our children. It's a challenge to me.

I loved the dark blue book I read earlier in the year - Punished by Rewards - it's along the same lines, but more about life and work than specifically dealing with children. The top one looks intriguing too...
