When I began reading this book, I immediately thought it was not for me. I have no children, so why do I want to read stories about children in jail and how different parenting, teaching, and thinking could have prevented these lives from being irrevocably torn and damaged.How wrong I was!Ms. Barren's book is a primer for living. It's thought provoking, eye opening, and inspirational. It's a call back to the times before parents and teachers abdicated their duties as role models and layers of the foundation from which tomorrow's critical thinking and interactions with others will spring. It's a manual to help us find our way back to becoming influencers, both actively and inactively, who will instill the strength in our youth that will help them make better decisions from positions of self-confidence, strength, and healthy pride.Yes, there are stories. Yes, there are quotes we've all heard before, but there are also new words to live by. These maxims are torn down and expanded upon in a way that each one of us can apply in our daily lives and, more importantly, in our interactions with others. Ms. Barren shows us how to become guiding lights, healthy examples of ways to live that make others want to follow our paths.In the latter part of the book, Ms. Barren even offers a checklist and workbook approach that can be used as refreshers, as decision-making aids, and in training our minds to reset, change perspective, and focus on positive change that will enrich not only our lives, but also the lives of those we care for, those we interact with on a daily basis, and, more importantly, those silent witnesses who are watching and trying to emulate us.There is something here from which all of us can learn. - Ann Collins, Book Reviewer
