The Way with Children by M. Shayne Gallagher Review

The Way with Children: Ancient Wisdom for Leading Modern Young People
by M. Shayne Gallagher
36174795
The Tao Te Ching is revered as one of the most powerful cannons of wisdom about leadership and governing, used by teachers, monks, chiefs, generals, and emperors for centuries.

The Way with Children, by author M. Shayne Gallagher, offers a "transduction" of the Tao Te Ching into a version useful to those who work with young people as a leader. Any teacher, school administrator, program staff member, coach, mentor, and especially parent, can benefit by gaining an understanding of the principles illuminated by the Tao Te Ching, especially one translated into a version just for them.

Written with special care to instruct the instructor, The Way with Children contains a series of passages and poems. It's a tool designed to help one ponder and re-center to benefit relationships through a discovery of ancient truths.

As a student of the Tao Te Ching for more than thirty years and as one who has worked with troubled teenagers in behavioral health programs for nearly as long, the principles have helped Gallagher understand how to work with at-risk youth. He shares those ideas in The Way with Children.

Cassandra's review- The book is filled with knowledge that can help anyone deal with kids.  What I mean is that should you be a parent needing guidance or a teacher wanting a clear mind to start your day the book could be a good pick me up and it is not just written for one certain factor because anyone can take from it in a positive light.

Cassandra's Review-  Firstly never compare yourself to other people because we are all too different and the style for one will not fit all.  The book provides such a range of multiple thoughts that you could very well use to gain the needed pick me up to continue on with your day and not feel super overwhelmed to make everything count.  I think that with my first child I was into making sure I had pictures and all kinds of moments that are only memorable at that time and now years later I am the moment with my kids and we take want we get out of them no matter how big or small.

Mixed Spices - Everything But The Bagel Mix
Like most great recipes, the Everything Bagel was invented from using leftovers. As legend has it, back around 1980, a teenager working at a bagel place in New York had the end-of-shift task of sweeping out the oven of all the toppings that fell off the different bagels. One day, after tasting the collection of leftover spices, he suggested to his boss that they not throw out the mixture as they usually did, but instead use it to create a new bagel flavor. Bagel history was made when the newfangled “everything” bagel sold out the next day.

Look for Pereg Everything But The Bagel Spice Mix in the supermarket spice aisle.

It’s fresh, 100% natural, gluten-free, vegan, and OU and CRC kosher-certified, with no MSG, additives or preservatives. A 5.3 oz jar will retail for $5.50.
