The Turning

release date: Aug 26, 2014
The Turning
It is easy to find alarming statistics on escalating violence, addiction and economic inequality in developed countries and stubborn poverty in the third world. The fascinating question has to do with cause. New York Times #1 bestselling authors Richard and Linda Eyre’s new book The Turning: Why the State of the Family Matters and What the World Can Do about It contends that the social and economic challenges faced not only in the United States, but throughout the world, are the direct result of an unprecedented and widespread turning away from family. The negative effects of this turning are apparent in the youth of the world today: In São Paulo, Brazil, more than 1.2 million “street children” are addicted to cocaine; Suicide is the third leading cause of death for American fifteen-to-twenty-four-year-olds; Great Ormond Street Hospital in London has treated girls as young as seven or eight for eating disorders; In Ethiopia, nearly half of the children under the age of six work 30-hour weeks; and In the past year there have been over 64 school shootings in the U.S., equaling more than one shooting a week. The Turning uses research findings, statistics (like those listed above), and the Eyres’ personal experiences at home and abroad to show that families are essential to the survival and success of civilization. With the well-being of the world at risk, The Turning will move readers in a way that will raise personal reflection, discussion, and action to return the family to its necessary position as the recognized and prioritized basic unit of society. But far more than a book of statistics and political suggestions, this is a book for parents—parents who want to better understand the world their children are growing up in and who want to create a family culture that is stronger than the internet culture, the peer culture, and all the other influences that flurry around our children every day. As Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat opened our eyes to the cause-and-effect aspects of the global economy, The Turning will open the eyes of readers across the world to the means-and-ends connections between stable families and households and the world’s ability to meet its social and economic challenges. As Harvard’s Clayton Christensen and best-selling author of The Innovator’s Dilemma states, “This book gives us a common cause, and a clear way to frame and explain the causality of today’s problems.” In the spirit of Friedman’s The World is Flat, Richard and Linda Eyre examine the connections between the world’s mounting social problems and the breakdown of families and look deeply at the root causes of family disintegration—the false paradigms that confuse the priorities of parents and influence the kind of policies and practices in larger institutions (from media to government) that threaten families both economically and emotionally.

The Entitlement Trap

release date: Sep 06, 2011
The Entitlement Trap
Dump the allowance-and use a new "Family Economy" to raise responsible children in an age of instant gratification. Number-one New York Times bestselling authors Richard and Linda Eyre, have spent the last twenty-five years helping parents nurture strong, healthy families. Now they've synthesized their vast experience in an essential blueprint to instilling children with a sense of ownership, responsibility, and self-sufficiency. At the heart of their plan is the "Family Economy" complete with a family bank, checkbooks for kids, and a system of initiative-building responsibilities that teaches kids to earn money for the things they want. The motivation carries over to ownership of their own decisions, values, and goals. Anecdotal, time-tested, and gently humorous, The Entitlement Trap challenges some of the sacred cows of parenting and replaces them with values that will save kids (and their parents) from a lifetime of dependence and disabling debt.

Teaching Your Children Values

release date: May 11, 2010
Teaching Your Children Values
One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is a strong sense of personal values. Helping your children develop values such as honesty, self-reliance, and dependability is as important a part of their education as teaching them to read or how to cross the street safely. The values you teach your children are their best protection from the influences of peer pressure and the temptations of consumer culture. With their own values clearly defined, your children can make their own decisions -- rather than imitate their friends or the latest fashions. In Teaching Your Children Values Linda and Richard Eyre present a practical, proven, month-by-month program of games, family ctivities, and value-building ecercises for kids of all ages.

The Thankful Heart

release date: Oct 16, 2014
The Thankful Heart
We all know that an attitude of gratitude helps each day be a little better. When times are difficult and challenges abound, having a thankful heart is the catalyst for the abundant life. The Thankful Heart, by well known family authors Richard and Linda Eyre, is a book to keep or a book to give, filled with messages of gratitude and inspiring images for even the most difficult day. In this beautifully illustrated book, we find the opportunity to consciously and deliberately develop our own skill to feel gratitude more deeply, and give it more freely. And we are challenged to turn the passive holiday noun “Thanksgiving” into the active, year-long verb “Thanks-Giving.” New York Times #1 bestselling authors Richard and Linda Eyre like to think of each November-December Holiday Season as another chapter in their exploration of Thanks-Giving. Early in their marriage, tired of the commercialism and conformity of Christmas cards, they began sending out a Thanksgiving Poem each year to friends and family. As the years rolled by, their life was increasingly defined by those three words—Family, Friends, and Thanks-giving. Through their poetry and the photos taken by family members, we go with the Eyres on their journey through various phases and perspectives of the transforming emotion of gratitude, and in the book’s final section, they share each of their Thanksgiving cards from the last forty-three years.

Whether offering advice on streamlining your life, coping with the martyr syndrome, or ignoring the outrageous demands of toddlers and teens with serenity and grace (or not), Linda Eyre speaks with the voice of experience.
