By the early nineties, singer-songwriter and former Blake Babies member Juliana Hatfield’s solo career was taking off: She was on the cover of Spin and Sassy. Ben Stiller directed the video for her song "Spin the Bottle" from the Reality Bites film soundtrack. Then, after canceling a European tour to treat severe depression and failing to produce another "hit," she spent a decade releasing well reviewed albums on indie labels and performing in ever-smaller clubs. A few years ago, she found herself reading the New Yorker on a filthy couch in the tiny dressing room of a punk club and asked, "Why am I still doing this?" By turns wryly funny and woundingly sincere, When I Grow Up takes you behind the scenes of rock life as Hatfield recounts her best and worst days, the origins of her songs, the source of her woes, and her quest to find a new purpose in life.

We all want our children to grow up to be happy and successful, right? And yet studies and surveys consistently show that over half of all Americans are unhappy in their jobs. So what can you do to help ensure that your child has a better chance at career success and fulfillment? You don't want your child's life motto to be "TGIF," do you? That's why author Karleen Tauszik designed this career possibility journal for kids. As we grow up, we easily forget the things we loved to do as a child - our natural talents and gifts. We get pulled by societal pressures into fields where we can make more money or where we can climb the ladder quickly, forgetting and ignoring our special abilities that we bring to the world. This journal provides a way to remember and record those talents, achievements, preferences and passions. Writing them down from age 6 through to 18 will establish them in the memory. And every few years, there are "Look Back" pages to summarize the findings. By answering just a few questions every year, your child will create a valuable record of his or her talents, and will be enabled to make better career decisions for a more fulfilling future. If your child is older than 6, no worries. Just have him or her write in whatever can be remembered from those earlier years. (This book is best for ages 6 through 12.) Parents, please don't try to steer your child's answers to your own preferences. Even if what they write seems silly at the time, if it's from their heart it may provide a seed of an idea for a successful and rewarding career as an adult. Your role? Pick a day of the year to remind your child to encourage your child to take a few moments to answer the questions for his or her age. With these talents and gifts securely recorded, your child will be laying the groundwork for a more productive and happy adulthood.
