At Last: A Way to Get Our Latest Books at Half Price

Use the code EYREALM2016 when you go to and you will be able to get any three of our four newest books for $30 with free shipping.

Our goal, at this stage of our lives, is simply to get anything we have written to anyone who will be helped by it with the least cost and the least hassle. Many of you know that most of our older books (still relevant we hope) are now available for free on this page, and now we are happy to also be able to get our very latest books to you who have been loyal friends and followers over the years at a special deep discount.

We feel like, with a lifetime of experience, we are now doing our best writing, and we want to share what we have learned with other parents and grandparents through these four latest books. Read a little synopsis of Life in Full, The Thankful Heart, The Half-Diet Diet, and The Turning at We hope you enjoy them and we hope they have a positive impact on your families and on your life!

Greetings from Europe

We are in Germany and Switzerland this week, and continue to find that, wherever we go and whatever economic or political or cultural differences people have, when it comes to what we hope for and what we fear for or children, we are all essentially the same!

We spoke the other night to a large group of very powerful investment bankers and financial managers and the concerns they have about their families are different in some details but similar in their essence to the hopes and the worries of the much poorer parents we have spoken to in Latin America and to the more middle of the road parents we just addressed last week in the U.S.

Parenting, and the feelings parents have for and about their children may be the most uniting thing in this divided and fragmented world of ours.

The kind of unconditional, self-sacrificing love that parents everywhere feel for their children is truly inspiring. And the sorts of fears or worries we feel with regard to our children are felt by all parents.

We have spoken and presented to parents in more than 50 countries, and we love this feeling of commonality and universality even though the parents we are speaking to may look different from us and live in different circumstances. We always learn as much as we teach.

For example, speaking generally, European parents do a much better job that we do on teaching politeness, courtesy and respect to their children. Most parents in most parts of Asia are better at emphasizing the positive and ignoring the negative behavior of their kids. Latin American parents usually have stronger social structure and stronger family traditions and narratives than we do, and their extended family unity and interplay is stronger than in most U.S. families.

Despite these varying strengths and points of emphasis, we find that most parents, irrespective of where they are and what circumstances they live in, want to teach joy and values to their children, and that is why Joy School and the Alexander’s Amazing Adventures are popular around the world.

Thanks for being part of ValuesParenting, and take a certain amount of joy and comfort in the fact that the things you have in common with every other parent in the world are more important than your differences!

Love from our house to yours,
Linda and Richard
