tbj-bookThe Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have
By Laura and Malcolm Gauld

In this groundbreaking book, Laura and Malcolm Gauld draw on their experience as parents and as educators at Hyde — an organization of award-winning schools and programs — to argue persuasively that true education springs not just from seeking good grades and achievements but from reestablishing a commitment to character, attitude, and purpose. Offering a new paradigm for reconnecting education with values, the Gaulds focus attention not on the child, but on the child’s primary teacher — the parent.

natures-parenting-thumb-bookNature’s Parenting Process: Five Simple Truths to Empower Children through Parenting Excellence
By Joseph Gauld

This book unlocks nature’s powerful process for raising children, a process that produces truly fulfilling and exceptional lives. It is available to every parent, family and child. It’s an exciting challenge, which should become our next frontier.

Nature’s Parenting Process, centering on what Gauld calls the “inherent guidelines for raising children,” was inspired by the nationally recognized parenting and family concepts created 44 years ago at the first Hyde School in Bath, Maine. Gauld’s assertion — that parenting today has become painfully confused because of a prevalent mindset that ignores the basic foundation of child-rearing — targets a parenting trend that he sees as both arbitrary and self-regulating and threatens the emotional well-being of today’s youth.

character-first-bookCharacter First: The Hyde School Way and Why It Works
By Joseph Gauld

Courage. Integrity. Leadership. Curiosity. Concern. These values are sadly missing from today’s schools. Joe Gauld knew this too well as a teacher, coach, and administrator at secondary schools that were supposed to be among the best in the country. He saw a system preoccupied with students’ ability and academic achievement, and blind to their character. Gauld decided to do something about it – start his own school.
