CHECK IT OUT: Library closing May 10 for training session

Published: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 13:10 PM.

Bestselling author Bruce Feiler tackles family matters in his latest book, which includes research from Silicon Valley and the Green Berets to Warren Buffet's guide for setting an allowance and the Harvard handbook for resolving conflict. The result is a fun, original look at the smartest ways to teach kids values, calm chaos at home, and draw families closer.

Prepare to have your assumptions challenged. For example, when children were asked, "If you were granted one wish about your parents, what would it be?" most parents predicted their kids would say spending more time with them. Actually, kids wished that their parents were less tired and less stressed.
