@NickiPower I really enjoyed Yes Please! but then I find it hard not to love anything from Leslie Knope... I mean Amy Poehler
@Ben-RO did you ever get that beehive going?
I've just started reading a book about non-violent communication by Judith Lasater. Has anyone heard of or tried non-violent communication?

I'm not currently reading it but have done a number of times.
Teenagers, Alcohol and Drugs
What your kids really want and need to know about alcohol and drugs
by Paul Dillon.
He's an Australian expert in the field of young people and drug and alcohol use. He set up DARTA (Drug and Alcohol Research & Training Australia) and presents all over the place. This book is just super practical and really informative for parents. It's nice and small so you can read it in a fairly short time. It's also very easy to read, not academic at all.
I think it's a great book for parents of teens to help formulate an approach to alcohol and drug use.
What about you, @Needsainity Any books you would reccommend for parents or are you reading anything for joy at the moment or recently?

I'm currently reading 'How To Solve Our Human Problems' by G K Gyatso, a buddhist monk.
It's so interesting and gives insight into human nature and ways we can deal with anger, frustration, jealousy etc.

I haven't read it @Beingme2017, but I really like him, so will have to add it to my pile! Currently that consists of 'Transform Your Life', by GK Gyatso, a Buddhist monk, I need to finish reading 'The Fry Chronicles' by Stephen Fry, and 'A Green and Pleasant Land', by Ursula Buchan.
Mindfulness is needed to actually finish one task before starting the next! Haha
His show would be fantastic @LovingThruBlue! Enjoy!
