  2. The seminar last night was informative and eye opening. My husband and 13 year old were supposed to attend, but as always confusion disrupted expectations. However, I cannot thank you enough for the wealth of information. When I told my 10 year old that his computer time was going to be limited on weekdays to an hour a day, he cried hysterically. However, when we returned home, he lectured my husband and other son about the harmful effects of too much electronics. I thought this was going to be easier than I thought. Then my teenager gave his rebuttal to the limited time for electronics. Such is life. Anyway, I was pursuing your site to buy your book for the family to digest, but realizing my food was elsewhere, I must say farewell and visit the restaurant called Amazon.

  3. I am writing essay about this topic now but it seems that our bookstores and school libraries in Oslo does not have any copy yet.

    The reviews are intriguing & watching your interview makes it more compelling to have a copy of this book.

    Keep inspiring millions through your gift of writing!
