If you are like me you are tired of hearing tragic stories of the impact of bullying on the lives of children.

I believe so strongly that no child should be bullied by anyone, anywhere at any time that I wrote a pocket guide for parents called " How to Bully proof Your Child." It contains 41 tips that really do work and that give parents effective tips, tools and techniques to use when their child is bullied.

So if your child is being subjected to bullying or you know a parent who is at their wit's end dealing with this issue, check this out. I know these tips work because I used them at home and in my classroom for years. Bullying was NOT allowed.

Humour is Everywhere. Look For it and Enjoy

Humour is Everywhere

As many of you know I speak on the topic of humour and attitude in human health and relations. I am always on the look-out for humour that flows out of our shared human condition.

When I hear or observe a funny situation or story I write it down in my ever present notebook for possible use in a book or future talk.

Here is one from my collection. Hope you like it.

A commercial airline pilot, on his way to take over a flight out of Calgary, sat next to a mother who was nursing her newborn baby. As he glanced her way she felt the need to explain, " My doctor said it would prevent the baby's ears from plugging on take-off and landing."

Not knowing how to respond the pilot found himself saying," And all these years of flying I have been chewing gum."

For more funny stories to give your life a lift and a laugh...

How to Embrace, Fully, the Mystery of Life

A brief selection from my book " Embracing the Mystery"
Each Summer I return to Algoma District drawn by some powerful, magnetic force, to be saturated with its beauty and formed by its soitude. It is in this awesome solitude that I reflect on the meaning of life, contemplate the mysteries of the universe and celebrate the sheer joy of being alive.
