Invisible Women: Junior Enlisted Army Wives by Margaret C. Harrell
I'd like to point out, first of all, that I am an officer's wife. However, I have a much different perspective than that of the author. Apparently, she has known only a handful of enlisted spouses and is not aware of the many resources available in the community where she could have pointed these women toward for help rather than letting them flounder. I've seen enlisted women who went to college and held high paying jobs, I've seen those who were stay at home moms who made ends meet however they could, I've seen those who ran businesses, I've seen those who ran the post's spouses' club, their unit's Family Readiness Group or Red Cross chapters.

This is a wonderful book, with a Christian perspective on explaining sex to kids. It has 2 sets of text, one for younger kids and a slightly more advanced set for older kids. It touches on several areas including conception, pregnancy and adoption. It is definitely for the Christian family as it discusses Adam and Eve and Christ's birth among other things such as Christian morality. A wonderful starting point for discussion with your kids. My 2 girls (5 and 3) loved it when their younger brother came along.
Life Strategies: Doing What Works, Doing What Matt&hellip by Phillip C. McGraw
I grant you, many psychologists are smary, touchy-feely and yet, strangely troubled people who don't seem to live in the real world. However, Dr. Phil isn't one of them. He is wonderfully down to Earth and has a "get with the program" style so that even a "manly-man" can appreciate and embrace his point-of-view. This book is full of good, solid information. It makes you take a hard look at yourself and your life. After you take that cold, hard look he refuses to allow yourself to feel guilty. There's no time for that, you are to move on, making the changes that will change *you* and your life, for good.
