Courageous Parents, Confident Kids

The book I recently wrote a chapter for—Courageous Parents, Confident Kids: Letting Go So You Both Can Grow—will be published on April 19. Editor Amy Tiemann, the brains behind this project, just revealed the cover, which I'm sharing at left.

A paperback edition will be sold through Amazon, and for a limited time the book will be available via a free "e-book."
