This is kind of a different subject for me. I heard about Ceaser Millan from a story that Malcolm Gladwell wrote in his book “What the Dog Saw”. I became interested in his story and how he uses human behavior to help rehabilitate dogs. I read his book that’s called “caesar’s Way” and I’ve also watched numerous episodes of his show “The Dog Whisper”. I think we all need to be working on our own calm assertiveness.

I always knew that I disliked the way our education system has been set up. I just never knew what I could do about it…Until now! Seth Godin has written a 98 page manuscript called “Stop Stealing Dreams” and it is AWESOME! Please take the time to go to this link and download your FREE copy of this ebook. Please also pass it along to any parent and educator you know! Here’s a quick video that has some more of my thoughts on it.
