This is one of our two kitties, Patches.  She was ticked off because I had the living room radios monitoring only VHF/UHF.  Like her OM, her favorite mode is CW.  She was impatiently waiting for me to fire up the Argonaut V to listen to 60 meters.  She copies Morse code quite well.  But she can't send worth a hoot; she's QLRP -- sounds like she's sending with her left rear paw.  Meow.






    My XYL, Stephanie, is the author of the highly acclaimed book about biblical parenting, Gentle Firmness.  Not only does this 500 page book clearly dispel the oft-held misconception that the Bible somehow instructs parents to physically punish (hit/spank/injure) their children to supposedly "guide" them, it contains valuable, highly effective, positive disciplinary techniques to accomplish that goal without inflicting physical, emotional, and irreversible neurological damage.

    This book is a must-read, not only for Christian parents, but for all parents regardless of religious affiliation (even non-believers!) who seek positive, enduring outcomes through the difficult task of raising healthy, empathetic, and emotionally secure children.

"As an early childhood professional I look for books I can recommend to new teachers and new parents. This will be one of my top choices for evangelical Christians or for anyone who presents a pro-spanking argument. The author thoroughly and systematically addresses all the familiar reasons parents give for hitting their children. She calls a spade a spade-- spanking IS hitting people smaller and more helpless than you. She describes how it damages them, physically, emotionally, and psychologically. And she describes the alternative: loving, warm, and authoritative discipline. Stephanie Cox has excellent credentials in early childhood education, and a very sincerely expressed faith in God and His scripture. Inexperienced caretakers can trust her advice." Dr. Susan Aud

    Gentle Firmness is available directly from the publisher as well as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other fine booksellers everywhere.  A limited number of signed copies are available directly from the author.
