asking, "Where is my SOWP News?"
It's back! I appreciate all the positive
responses I've received about the newsletter, and I've

I'm glad to hear my wacky parenting

more of them coming your way. The SOWP News is here to

make your parenting easier and a lot more fun.

My New Web
As some of you know, I'm not tech
savvy (but very parening/kid/teen savvy!), and just a bit
behind the times with the web stuff. But, I'm catching up and
now have a web site. For more information about me, or my
counseling and speaking services, you can find it all at www.ScottPeebles.com
There are also some great sound bytes from my live
presentations you can listen to on the site. Enjoy!
Big thanks to my good friend John
Wrate at Poof Consulting for all his help with the technical
part of this. I could not have put this together without him.
He's also the technical part behind the SOWP News being sent
to you. If you need someone to help you with your web site,
programming, or any other computer technical problems - John
is the answer to your problems. His link is on my web
site. top of
I've been asked so many times,
"Where's your CD Scott?" And after
telling you I didn't have any, and having to live with you
saying, "Well why not! I want to take you home with
me and hear it all again. Don't you really care about us
parents? Don't you want us to be slightly off the wall? Don't
you know that a CD of you live is what we need? When are you
going to put it together? When? When? When? When? When are you
going to have one for us?"
Well, all of you in the above
category will be happy to hear I've finally put together a
couple CD's for you, with more coming. The 2 available right
now, and hot off the press, are: "How to Parent Your
Kids Without Losing Your Mind!" and
"Temperaments, Tantrums, and Screaming - Oh My!"
Just go to the products tab at www.ScottPeebles.com for
more information of what's included on each CD. You can order
them either through snail mail (there's a order form you can
print out and mail to me), or you can order directly
through PayPal on the site. If you would like them autographed
just let me know. top of
