What's New About My Parent Tips Book?
Susie E. Caron (c) 8/30/2015
This week’s blog is a little different. Instead of an article about parenting, I want to tell you about my next book and ask for your help.
First, I will tell you about my progress.
I am currently about ½ way through rough-draft writing. This is my first book specifically for you. My first 3 picture books, designed for kids 3-9 years, is about a little pine tree called Twee’. I am happy to report it is doing very well on Amazon in eBook and print. (Check it out to the right of this blog.) However, my next book is for parents and you are the first to know the title:
Twee’ Parent Tips
Wait! What's Twee' doing in this title?
Okay, I confess when I wrote my first 3 books, I didn’t know that Twee’ would become my brand. The name Twee’ just came to me after some soul searching and praying about which book to publish first. (Until I published Twee’ I had a list of about 20 titles I was thinking about writing as 'my first book'.)
Then, after I released my 3rd book, Twee’ for Two, I became curious about the word 'twee'. I looked it up here to my surprise and delight ‘twee’ means cute and adorable. What better fit could I have imagined. Of course, the apostrophe at the end was something I added to represent the unique and special characteristic of my character Twee’.
What does cute and adorable have to do with Parent Tips?
I know you will agree that a loving exchange between mother and child is often cute and adorable. Admit it, you have gazed lovingly at your kids (especially when they were babies) and found them both cute and adorable. So, I’m writing a book with 24 concise concepts that every parent must know that will help them to improve their relationship bond with their kids! When that relationship is good, communication is clearer, parenting becomes easier and you and your kids have more fun along the way.
How do I know?
I recently retired from over 40+ years of careers as a teacher, psychotherapist, parent-coach and more. During that time I learned how to help parents to connect with their children, to understand them better, to gain their cooperation, and to have more fun. In the process, I also discovered that what parents and kids crave is something neither really understands how to easily obtain or manage. Parents and kids all want better, deeper, more fulfilling relationship with one another. This is vitally important. When you truly connect with your kids, you build a better parent-child relationship, improve communication, have more fun, and reap benefits that last a lifetime.
Would You Like To Help?
I really believe that better parent child relationships is the key to improving communication, easier parenting and better behaved kids. Writing a book isn’t easy. It takes time and consistency and blessings. I am willing and eager to produce it, but it also needs your help, for this important information to get into lots of homes, hands and hearts.
Will you help me create a ‘Buzz’ about this book? Will you post this article on Facebook and Twitter? Would you send this link to your friend, who is a parent or grandparent? If you'd like, you can also post your parenting questions or email them to me? Who knows? Your questions may eventually make it into my Twee’ Parent Tips book - or maybe my next book! Thank you!!!
I appreciate you!
Remember Twee’s means you and me
Working together to raise great - and cute and adorable - kids.

I retired from teaching, became a psychotherapist treating children and families and an author. After retiring I became a full time artist.
I recently reopened this parenting blog because I believe wisdom is to be shared.

Just wanted to say that I love your posts about the different ways to connect/relate/understand your child. It has given me a new approach towards understanding my daughter and allowing HER to tell me how she feels instead of me suggesting to her how she should feel. Thanks Susie!
