Download and read online More Love Less Panic in PDF and EPUB In this heartwarming and hilarious memoir, Claude Knobler describes how he learned the hard way that the apple actually can fall far from the tree—and that’s Okay. Already the biological parents of a seven-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter, Claude Knobler and his wife decided to adopt Nati, a five-year-old Ethiopian boy who seemed different from Knobler in every conceivable way. After more than five years spent trying to turn his wild, silly, adopted African son into a quiet, neurotic, Jewish guy like himself, Knobler realized the importance of having the courage to love, accept, and let go of his children. In this wonderfully written memoir, Knobler explains how his experiences raising Nati led him to learn a lesson that applied equally well to parenting his biological children: It’s essential to spend the time we are given with our children to love them and enjoy them, rather than push and mold them into who we think they should be.

Throughout My Life My Mother has served as my Cheat Sheet. Whenever I needed an ear to hear, someone to brainstorm with or toss my ideas off of, My Mother was my go to person.

You see, when My Mother was talking, I was always listening. And for her to know that I was indeed paying attention validated everything that she taught me along her journey's path.
