A book review from the Founder of CATCH....
I am reading "Lost Connections" by Johann Hari and think it is amazing!
I am reading "Lost Connections - Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression and The Unexpected Solutions" by Johann Hari and recommend it highly. Based on studies and the author's conversations with social scientists around the world, this book is remarkable. I am thinking differently, not only about depression and mental illness, but about our human condition as a whole. We can live differently - connect more meaningfully- and be a healthier, happier human race. #catchisconnected

Teaching respect for adults
Keeping expectations in line with your child’s temperament
Coping with frustration
Avoiding over-scheduling and overindulgence
