    With older kids, try a book club. Book clubs should be fun, not “highbrow.” Our mother-daughter book club giggled uncontrollably when we extended the book discussions with questions like, “When have you lied and not gotten caught?” Hilarious confessions erupted.

Ordered a copy and have read it cover to cover - an 4/5(). Usually reading self help books make me feel pathetic but this one didn't, this book however made me feel extremely hopeful and gave lots of honest answers on what you should do to be more interesting.
