Biker Boys

I don't know how you see it...

but for me, there's somethin' about a young man in uniform.

(Grandma is kinda partial to the one on the right.)

Hi, Linda and Richard Eyre here. You may know us from our parenting book bestsellers or the blogs of our daughters.....or perhaps you have seen our weekly columns in the Deseret News.

But in any case, we know you. And we love your blog! Of all the "mommy blogs" out there, it is surprising how few actually focus on mothering and parenting. Yours is one of them, and you do it so well!

We have what we think is our best and most important parenting book ever coming out the first of September, and we would like to invite you to be part of our advisory board and help us craft (and disseminate) our message about the dangers of ENTITLEMENT! We feel that the entitlement attitudes of today's kids are the biggest problem of their generation (and the biggest concern of parents throughout the world)!

The new book is called THE ENTITLEMENT TRAP: How to Rescue Your Child with a New Family System of Choosing, Earning, and Owning. It will be in stores in early September, but if enough people pre order it from Amazon.com and other on line outlets it could debut on the bestseller lists its first week, and that would cause thousands of other parents to be aware of it and to have access to a message we think parents desperately need.

So here's the deal: If you are willing to work with and advise us on our board, we can send you a large pre publication sample of the book so that you can make your readers aware of it and give them a chance to order it at a pre-pub discount of more than 33%. And then we would want your ongoing input for the website www.EntitlementTrap.com which is now in its lead-up phase to the book, but which will continue to supply additional info and helps to moms long after the book is out. It will, of course, link to the blogs of all members of our board.

Take a look at that site and get a bit more idea of the nature of the book, and let us know as soon as possible if you will be an adviser. We will then send you the extensive excerpts so that you can blog about the book and about the movement prior to the book's release.

Best, Linda and Richard Eyre (eyres1@comcast.net)

PS There will also be webinars and other exciting opportunities for those who pre order the book, and of course for you and other board members.

Scouts always look so darn cute in their uniforms!!

And WOW The Eyre's have contacted you. I am reading that comment and my jaw is dropping! The Eyre's got me through my years of early motherhood with their wisdom and parenting tips and I have loved them ever since and read their column each week! How neat that they read your blog!

Impressive comment from the Eyres. I've been a fan of them and their books since the 80's when my kids were small. They gave me some great ideas and good tips towards good parenting over the years.
I do love a bunch of little Cubs, don't you?

That is quite a large group of boys! I think it's great! How proud you must be- I know that my son really enjoyed scouts.

Great pictures and I am sure great kids. It's good to see kids doing something fun and enjoying being with other kids. I am a wee bit partial to the one on the right too!

There is something about them, isnt there. Only better when they are 19 and entering the field.

How cute! You can't look anymore spiffed-up than when wearing a uniform, I say! Nothing quite tops it! :)
