Editorial Reviews

Review

"My wife and I have really young kids, and as a result were so happy to check out Positive Discipline Ninja Tactics. Karen's mix of personal stories and great hacks - things to do in the toughest moments with little kids - make this book so useful and entertaining. Highly recommended!"
- Geoff Woods, entrepreneur and host of The Mentee Podcast
"Positive Discipline Ninja Tactics gives practical advice and easy-to-implement strategies with real-life examples of ways we can parent our children in a positive and respectful way." 
- Janine Halloran, Play Specialist and Licensed Mental Health Counselor
"Great quick read - just what busy parents need. I really enjoyed this quick, clear and caring parenting book. Her book draws from the same general philosophy of instilling self-reliance as the Free-range book by Lenore Skenazy... Lots of tricks and techniques you can start using right away."
- Reader Heidi de los Andes, in her five-star Amazon review

From the Author

While finishing up this book I learned of a man who lived in the late 1600s, Matthias Buchinger. Despite being born without hands or feet, Matthias created beautiful miniature works in calligraphy, performed magic and played instruments - such as the bagpipes - for large audiences and heads of state. He was married four times and by all accounts lived a joyful and productive life that astounds, given the handicaps he started out with.

Beverly Beckham, the Boston Globe columnist who writes so eloquently about Matthias, shares that he had seven able-bodied, physically normal brothers - and points out that none of them have work memorialized in museums, none lived the celebrated life that their youngest brother Matthias did.

Learning about this gentleman made me wonder: can we say that he led this remarkable life because of his so-called handicaps?

I wondered about that because five years ago I developed a chronic illness that causes pain and scarring in affected tendons - I've been without full use of my hands and forearms since February 2014.

I wrote this book entirely by voice, using speech recognition software.

This illness, tendinosis, has frankly been a real bitch to live with. I spent eight months with legs that could carry me only a few steps; a grueling eighteen months' rehab brought them back online. When my thumbs stopped working in February 2014, I relied on my husband and two sons for nearly everything - seriously, I could barely hold a fork.

(Please note - I am SO grateful for all that I can do, and cannot even imagine going through life without hands or feet; I understand this comparison can only be carried so far. I'm incredibly fortunate for all that I have.)

But while I was so physically incapable, I had lots of time to think; I used my heart, my mind, and my voice to start We Turned Out Okay, a podcast that helps parents of young children worry less and enjoy more. Helping these parents with my voice gave my life purpose when I really had just about given up.

Working with young children is my area of expertise and my passion; my master's degree is in Early Childhood Education and before I was a mom I spent nearly a decade working in a public preschool program.

But, like so many able-bodied people caught up in the daily ups and downs of everyday life, I hadn't used my degree in years (other than to raise my own boys). It was only when I could no longer perform the daily tasks that every able-bodied person performs that I had the time to really consider: what is my life for, what is my purpose? How can I contribute positively in these circumstances?

The answer is before you.

Learning about Matthias Buchinger, I keep wondering, did he pose these same questions? Did he look around, take stock of his life, appreciate the wonderful people in it, and then ask - what can I do?

I think maybe he did.
