Pdf Parenting Work. Pump. Repeat.: The New Mom's Survival Guide to Breastfeeding and Going Back to Work

Pdf:Work. Pump. Repeat.: The New Mom's Survival Guide to Breastfeeding and Going Back to Work.Review “Debut author Shortall strikes the perfect note . . . and takes a casual, keeping-it-real tone toward everything from ‘porn-star boobs’ to pumping during conference calls. . . . It’s the kind of information an intimate, chatty friend who’s done it all could share in a few lunchtimes and a session on the couch—did you know you can sterilize coffee cups in the microwave and pump milk into them?—except that not every mom has those kinds of friends. Having such helpful tips and tricks in print will be a godsend to the back-to-work mom who doesn’t have time for everything to go any less than smoothly.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))'Work. Pump. Repeat. is an incredible resource for breastfeeding moms going back to work. But this is also a must read for anyone working or living with a pumping mom, even the guys. Jessica's spirit comes through, irresistibly fun and honest you can't help but laugh and be humbled at the same time. Little did I know that Jessica would be unearthing some of life's most valuable lessons for women, managers and employers while she was pumping in cars during our infamous Nepal trip.' (Blake Mycoskie, Founder & Chief Shoe Giver, TOMS)“When you read Jessica Shortall’s book, you feel as if your wicked smart and big-hearted friend sat you down to give you the good, the bad and the (often hilarious) reality about pumping at work. Finally a comprehensive book on pumping at work I feel confident about recommending to my clients!” (Elaine McGhee, founder, www.ThriveMomma.com)“Shortall manages to be both hilarious and informative in the non-condescending manner that can only come from someone who has truly been there . . . the result is a holy grail of information. I described the book to a friend as 'postpartum-pee-inducing funny.’ It is a book I not only want to buy for my soon-to-be-working-mom friends, but also for all of my coworkers so that they can just finally understand.” (Liberating Working Moms)“As IBCLCs, we understand the theory behind pumping and the production of breast milk. However, no one can understand the practicalities and the emotional cost better than a mom who has done it! Jessica Shortall’s book has hit on an area of need. Based on her own experience, she delivers practical how-tos that other books are missing.” (Cindy Leclerc, RN IBCLC and Jana Stockham, RN IBCLC, co-creators of NuuNest)“I read Work. Pump. Repeat. both as a mother who breastfed and worked, and as an IBCLC. The information in this book is spot-on [regarding] the science behind lactation, written so that stressed working moms will understand it with no jargon to wade through. Ms. Shortall tells it like it is and doesn’t sugarcoat the realities of breastfeeding and working. She reminds us that breastfeeding isn’t all or nothing and some breastmilk is better than none. Bravo!” (Robyn Roche-Paull, BSN, RN, IBCLC, author of Breastfeeding in Combat Boots)“A must-read for any mom who plans to pump at work. Jessica Shortall provides a thorough, practical, and relatable guide to the many challenges and rewards of being a pumping mom. She nimbly avoids controversy and judgment and presents all the things a working mom needs to know, even the things she didn't know she needed to know.” (JJ Keith, author of Motherhood Smotherhood)“A solid advice guide that should be on the shelves of any woman who enjoys a career and who wants to return to it while continuing to nurture her child: a guide very highly recommended for its exceptional focus and well-rounded discussion of the realities of the venture.” (D. Donovan, senior e-book reviewer, Midwest Book Review)“I’ve read a sneak preview edition, and it is Very Very Good—the author describes it as a ‘judgment-free zone,’ and she’s not kidding. And it’s absolutely stuffed with practical, detailed advice.” (Breastfeeding Without BS) Read more Review Work. Pump. Repeat. is an incredible resource for breastfeeding moms going back to work. But this is also a must read for anyone working or living with a pumping mom, even the guys.

Pdf Parenting Motherhood, the Elephant in the Laboratory: Women Scientists Speak Out

Pdf:Motherhood, the Elephant in the Laboratory: Women Scientists Speak Out.Review 'Women trying to squeeze a career and family duties into one 24-hour day will gain much affirmation from this collection of essays. The writers, who all balance science careers and motherhood, provide a fascinating insight into a world too often kept hidden. For those without children it should come with a health warning: the juggling and compromises these women have learned to live with may add up to a sobering reality check for those who still think they can have it all. For some it may prove a powerful contraceptive.'―New Scientist, June 2008'In these heartrending essays, women who are well-trained and well-situated in science detail the compromises they have made in order to raise children and be scientists. . . . The women who succeed―and there are many in this volume―are those whose partners take an equal share of the responsibility for raising a family and making the household function.'―American Scientist'Emily Monosson has edited a very interesting book. She has collected essays written by 34 female scientists on how they managed to combine being a scientist with being a mother. It is regrettable that the subject of this book has continued to be relevant despite many decades of struggle by scientists to find a balance between work and family. The problem remains unsolved.'―Alice L. Givan, Industrial and Labor Relations Review, April 2009'At last―a book to convince women scientists that there is life beyond the professoriate. These brief life stories demonstrate that women professionals do not have to play by men's rules to have a career. They also show the world that women scientists are not only literate but also witty.'―Phoebe Leboy, University of Pennsylvania, President, Association for Women in Science'Motherhood, the Elephant in the Laboratory is an engaging, moving, and informative book. It depicts the challenge of combining a career in science with motherhood, using the voices of real women to portray the diversity of possible experiences.'―Jo Handelsman, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor and Chair, Department of Bacteriology, University of Wisconsin–Madison'The stories in Motherhood, the Elephant in the Laboratory are captivating and the picture of science as a field was truly sobering.

Pdf:Reaching and Teaching Children Who Hurt: Strategies for Your Classroom.Review 'Adeptly translate[s] theory and research about the impact of trauma on children into practical strategies for use in educational settings . . . an invaluable resource for teachers and school administrators.' (Betsy McAlister Groves, LICSW) Read more About the Author Susan E. Craig, Ph.D., has devoted her professional career to teaching both children and adults. Her interest in the relationship between family violence and learning began early. While working as a young reading specialist, she noted that many of the children she evaluated had a history of family violence. Her interest piqued, she pursued a doctorate at the University of New Hampshire, studying under Murray Straus, Ph.D., world renowned for his research on family violence. Dr. Craig's 1986 dissertation established a relationship between children's exposure to violence and subsequent learning problems in language, memory, impulsivity, self-differentiation, and executive function. These findings, published in Phi Delta Kappan in 1992, are now confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology, which documents the relationship between violence and brain development.Dr. Craig completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Miami. Working with Miami's Children's Protective Services and the assessment team at Jackson Memorial Hospital, she conducted intellectual evaluations of children who had been maltreated.During this time, she completed a 30-year retrospective study of child homicide in Dade County, Florida, which was published in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence in 1989.Working on site with many school districts throughout the country, Dr. Craig supports teaching and administrative staff in creating inclusive, trauma-sensitive schools. In 2001, the Rockland County New York Bureau of Children's Educational Support (BOCES) received the National School Board Association Magna Award. The honor was in recognition of a program that Dr. Craig helped develop. Read more

(Douglas Winthrop Cooper, retired physicist, author of Ting and I)"This is one book I'm putting into my calendar to read again every year, if not more often." (Grace Judson, author of The Five Deadly Shoulds of Office Politics)Father and Son  The Wealthy Gardener is an audiobook with a lot of soul because it was written by a financially independent father for his 21-year old son. The father and son met weekly to discuss many lessons on prosperity. A parable was used to clarify financial insights and maintain the son's ongoing interest. This education between the father and son lasted two years. These two years culminated in this remarkable book. It is a treasure that you'll want to return to as a reference guide, review many times, and refer to your children, nieces, nephews, and friends.  Topics you'll explore in the audiobook:How the pursuit of wealth can be a noble adventureWhy earning excess money is wise and necessaryWhy work that fulfills you is vital to amassing wealthHow to surmount obstacles that trap the masses in debt and wage slaveryHow to engage free time to win your freedomHow to use financial fears as compelling motivatorsHow to tap your intuition to sense opportunities and troubleHow to transform your financial life within five yearsHow to cause lucky breaks through mental practicesHow to amass enough money to never again have to worry about moneyThe Wealthy Gardener [excerpt from book] They dubbed him "the wealthy gardener" due to his passion for backyard gardening. The silly nickname stuck, and he didn't object to it. Instead, within a year he renamed his vineyards The Wealthy Gardens. He enjoyed the name because it reminded him of a metaphor comparing life to a plot of land. Gardeners are not afraid of working hard to shape their landscape, but they are also aware of a mysterious Unseen Force that operates behind the scenes to make the plants grow. "The author's noble intention of writing this book for his son is now a blessing for all those seeking financial freedom."

Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls

Pdf Parenting Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls

Pdf:Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls.NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An urgently needed guide to the alarming increase in anxiety and stress experienced by girls from elementary school through college, from the author of Untangled“An invaluable read for anyone who has girls, works with girls, or cares about girls—for everyone!”—Claire Shipman, author of The Confidence Code and The Confidence Code for Girls Though anxiety has risen among young people overall, studies confirm that it has skyrocketed in girls. Research finds that the number of girls who said that they often felt nervous, worried, or fearful jumped 55 percent from 2009 to 2014, while the comparable number for adolescent boys has remained unchanged. As a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with girls, Lisa Damour, Ph.D., has witnessed this rising tide of stress and anxiety in her own research, in private practice, and in the all-girls’ school where she consults. She knew this had to be the topic of her new book. In the engaging, anecdotal style and reassuring tone that won over thousands of readers of her first book, Untangled, Damour starts by addressing the facts about psychological pressure. She explains the surprising and underappreciated value of stress and anxiety: that stress can helpfully stretch us beyond our comfort zones, and anxiety can play a key role in keeping girls safe. When we emphasize the benefits of stress and anxiety, we can help our daughters take them in stride. But no parents want their daughter to suffer from emotional overload, so Damour then turns to the many facets of girls’ lives where tension takes hold: their interactions at home, pressures at school, social anxiety among other girls and among boys, and their lives online. As readers move through the layers of girls’ lives, they’ll learn about the critical steps that adults can take to shield their daughters from the toxic pressures to which our culture—including we, as parents—subjects girls. Readers who know Damour from Untangled or the New York Times, or from her regular appearances on CBS News, will be drawn to this important new contribution to understanding and supporting today’s girls.Praise for Under Pressure “Truly a must-read for parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors wanting to help girls along the path to adulthood.”—Julie Lythcott-Haims, New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult

Pdf:The Stressed Years of Their Lives: Helping Your Kid Survive and Thrive During Their College Years.From two leading child and adolescent mental health experts comes a guide for the parents of every college and college-bound student who want to know what’s normal mental health and behavior, what’s not, and how to intervene before it’s too late. “The title says it all...Chock full of practical tools, resources and the wisdom that comes with years of experience, The Stressed Years of their Lives is destined to become a well-thumbed handbook to help families cope with this modern age of anxiety.”— Brigid Schulte, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author of Overwhelmed and director of the Better Life Lab at New AmericaAll parenting is in preparation for letting go. However, the paradox of parenting is that the more we learn about late adolescent development and risk, the more frightened we become for our children, and the more we want to stay involved in their lives. This becomes particularly necessary, and also particularly challenging, in mid- to late adolescence, the years just before and after students head off to college. These years coincide with the emergence of many mood disorders and other mental health issues.When family psychologist Dr. B. Janet Hibbs's own son came home from college mired in a dangerous depressive spiral, she turned to Dr. Anthony Rostain. Dr. Rostain has a secret superpower: he understands the arcane rules governing privacy and parental involvement in students’ mental health care on college campuses, the same rules that sometimes hold parents back from getting good care for their kids. Now, these two doctors have combined their expertise to corral the crucial emotional skills and lessons that every parent and student can learn for a successful launch from home to college.

Tears of the Silenced: An Amish True Crime Memoir of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Brutal Betrayal, and Ultimate Survival

Pdf Parenting Tears of the Silenced: An Amish True Crime Memoir of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Brutal Betrayal, and Ultimate Survival

Pdf:Tears of the Silenced: An Amish True Crime Memoir of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Brutal Betrayal, and Ultimate Survival.A true crime memoir: When Misty was six years old, her family started to live and dress like the Amish. Misty and her sister were kept as slaves on a mountain ranch where they were subjected to almost complete isolation, sexual abuse, and extreme physical violence. Their stepfather kept a loaded rifle by the door at all times to make sure the young girls were too terrified to try to escape. They also knew that no rescue would ever come because only a couple of people even knew they existed and did not know them well enough to care.Amish sexual abuse: When Misty reached her teens, her parents feared she and her sister would escape and took them to an Amish community where they were adopted and became baptized members. Misty was devastated to once again find herself in a world of fear, animal cruelty, and sexual abuse. Going to the police was severely frowned upon. A few years later, Misty was sexually assaulted by the bishop. As Misty recalls, "Amish sexual abusers are only shunned by the church for six weeks, a punishment that never seems to work. After I was assaulted by the bishop I knew I had to get help and one freezing morning in early March I made a dash for a tiny police station in rural Minnesota. After reporting the bishop I left the Amish and found myself plummeted into the strange modern world with only a second-grade education and no ID or social security card. To all abuse survivors out there, please be encouraged, the cycle of abuse can be broken. Today, I am a nursing student working towards my master's degree and a child abuse awareness activist. This is my story."  Contains mature themes.

Healing After Narcissistic Abuse: Recover, Move on and Heal Yourself After a Toxic Abusive Relationship with a Narcissist: Recovering from Emotional Abuse and the Effects of Narcissism on a Deeper Level

Pdf Parenting Healing After Narcissistic Abuse: Recover, Move on and Heal Yourself After a Toxic Abusive Relationship with a Narcissist: Recovering from Emotional Abuse and the Effects of Narcissism on a Deeper Level

Pdf:Healing After Narcissistic Abuse: Recover, Move on and Heal Yourself After a Toxic Abusive Relationship with a Narcissist: Recovering from Emotional Abuse and the Effects of Narcissism on a Deeper Level.If you have come out of a toxic relationship and are ready to move on, focus on yourself, and finally heal, then keep reading....This book is about healing yourself rather than the main focus being on the narcissist and their behaviour. Constant research on narcissism only takes away time that could be used for implementing self-care patterns for your own recovery. Do you want to get past all the painful feelings such as shock, confusion, fear of the future, anger, loneliness, abandonment, and shame? If so, you have come to right place. You see, freeing yourself from destructive patterns doesn't have to be difficult. Even if you have tried researching behaviors of narcissists and other ways to move on, it can be easier than you think, if done correctly. I wasted time trying to heal in the wrong way. Researching narcissism and replaying and speaking about everything over and over again rather than digging deeper, truly deeper. Don't get me wrong, speaking up about abuse is the first, most important initial step you can take. But what comes next? How do you continue to heal past this?Studies have shown time and time again that deep healing is the way to truly address issues you are facing. Children that experience certain types of trauma during childhood are more likely to end up being in some form of an abusive relationship. A study by The Nursing Clinics of North America also concluded that healing the inner child by grieving neglected childhood developmental needs improves the quality of one's life. Here is a tiny fraction of what you'll discover:How knowing everything about narcissism is not helping you, and what to do insteadUseful things to do in the immediate aftermath, proven methods on how to process trauma Understanding what a pseudopersonality is, and how to fix itInner child healing, why is it useful for women like us, what it is and how to go about itHow simple exercises can help you with controlling your own thoughts after years of putting them firstHealing PTSDWhy meditation and mindfulness is so importantHow to reprogram your inner criticDo I need therapy? If so, which is best for me?Why your limited beliefs are holding you backWriting exercises for every step of the wayStories from real womenThings you need to know before getting into a new relationship Even if you are struck with fear for the future, feel like you will never be able to move forward, and have hit rock bottom, you can break this cycle by applying the strategies in this book.

Weird Parenting Wins: Bathtub Dining, Family Screams, and Other Hacks from the Parenting Trenches

Pdf Parenting Weird Parenting Wins: Bathtub Dining, Family Screams, and Other Hacks from the Parenting Trenches

Pdf:Weird Parenting Wins: Bathtub Dining, Family Screams, and Other Hacks from the Parenting Trenches.Unconventional - yet effective - parenting strategies, carefully curated by the creator of the popular podcast The Longest Shortest Time.Some of the best parenting advice Hillary Frank ever received did not come from parenting experts, but from friends and podcast listeners who acted on a whim, often in moments of desperation. These "weird parenting wins" were born of moments when the expert advice wasn't working, and instead of freaking out, these parents had a stroke of genius. For example, there's the dad who pig-snorted in his baby's ear to get her to stop crying, and the mom who made a "flat daddy" out of cardboard and sat it at the dinner table when her kids were missing their deployed military father. Every parent and kid is unique, and as we get to know our kids, we can figure out what makes them tick. Because this is an ongoing process, Weird Parenting Wins covers children of all ages, ranging in topics from "The Art of Getting Your Kid to Act Like a Person" (on hygiene, potty training, and manners) to "The Art of Getting Your Kid to Tell You Things" (because eventually, they're going to be tight-lipped). You may find that someone else's weird parenting win works for you, or you might be inspired to try something new the next time you're stuck in a parenting rut. Or maybe you'll just get a good laugh out of the mom who got her kid to try beets because...it might turn her poop pink.Read by Hillary Frank, with Nicola Barber, Dan Bittner, Raphael Corkhill, Ana Isabel, Laura Knight-Keating, Barrie Kreinik, Nick Martorelli, Jen Rubins, Quincy Tyler Bernstine, and Gabra Zackman.

Potty Training Made Easy: A Step by Step Guide on How to Toilet Train Your Child Fast

Pdf Parenting Potty Training Made Easy: A Step by Step Guide on How to Toilet Train Your Child Fast

Pdf:Potty Training Made Easy: A Step by Step Guide on How to Toilet Train Your Child Fast.How do you get your toddler to use the potty independently without raising a fuss? Potty training is a very important topic, just ask the mom of any toddler. This is one issue that has given several parents a tough time, yet if you do a quick search online, there is no end to claims that you can get your little one potty trained in a couple of days or less.If you are struggling with training your toddler to use the potty and it is not yielding a lot of success, the temptation is to think that maybe there is something wrong with you. Or with your child. If those thoughts are sneaking into your consciousness, then this is the time to resist temptation.There is likely nothing wrong with either you or your child. So how exactly are you supposed to potty train your child?That is a question that might be running through your mind, and it is a good one. The fact is that there are many methods to potty training and the one that will work for you depends largely on your child.It is easy to assume that a parent just automatically knows how to toilet train a child. But, it does not work that away. As a parent, it is important to learn how to do things properly. Of course, there are those who just intuitively know how to go about the potty training business and some children who just automatically start using the toilet by themselves. However, these are the exception and you probably do not know very many people like that. In fact, you probably don’t know anyone like that.What most people do is learn about the different methods of potty training and then pick the one that suits their child’s temperament and personality. What works for one child might not work for his sister. So understanding your child is imperative for successful toilet training.What does not work though, is shaming and mocking your child whenever accidents happen. This can have far-reaching negative effects on your child.The psychologist, Erikson believed that potty training was one of the eight important stages in the psychosocial development of a person. In particular, that toilet training was the most important stage between the ages 1 and 2. He believed that it was an event that led to self-confidence and self-control in a child, breeding greater freedom and the ability to do things on their own.Autonomy Vs Shame and DoubtIn order to achieve this autonomy in children, it is important that parents let the children do things on their own. This means not being too overprotective and certainly not shaming the child whenever there was a mistake.The result of the way you react to your child during this stage has a great significance on the child's world view later on. Whether your child goes on to become a confident and self-assured person or views the world through a lens of shame and doubt about his or abilities will depend a lot on the way you handle things during the potty training stage.Not to put pressure on you as a parent, this is merely a call for lots of patience during the toilet training phase.

A Girl's Faith: A Memoir by Karina Calver

Pdf Parenting A Girl's Faith: A Memoir by Karina Calver

Pdf:A Girl's Faith: A Memoir by Karina Calver.Review 'This memoir is a monumental act of courage by the author. Victims of sexual exploitation go through an unspeakable emotional journey, which is full of despondency, shame and secrets. Karina has walked through the fire, emerged like a phoenix from the ashes and fearlessly shares her story. This book is a must-read because more than anything, it is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and its absolute refusal to succumb to darkness.' ~  Lavina Valiram, Author of Part Star Part Dust, Entrepreneur & Blogger 'Karina's journey reminds us that we can overcome any past trauma with courage and with the right guidance. It is not a story of victimization, but more accurately one of having lived through it and survived. It is a must-read for those going through trauma and seeking 'light at the end of the tunnel'.' ~ Michelle Tanmizi, Behavioural Coach and Trainer, Motivational Speaker and Writer. 'Reading this book makes forgiveness of any kind seem possible. Karina shares her story vulnerably and proactively, channeling the intense emotion of her experiences and turning it into wisdom she has that is relevant and impacting to all. A must read for anyone on a journey of self-love, discovery and recovery.' ~ Keshia Hannam, Co-Founder, Camel Assembly & Journalist. 'Brought together with a common cause by the #MeToo movement, Karina is one of the bravest people I have ever met. Her personal story is one of a young girl's abuse and then of a fierce woman's survival. I cried for the little girl and I cheered for the courageous Karina: her passion, her determination and her ability to forgive above all else. This memoir is just the first chapter of a life still to be lived, loved and be told I look forward to the sequel!' ~ Karen See, Co-Founder, Embrace Worldwide. 'The passion Karina brings to her fitness is the same passion you feel when reading A Girl's Faith; a story of empowerment every female possesses but has held back due to society's taboos. Karina openly shares her struggles and breakthroughs to empower us to overcome those fears and barriers as well.' ~ Stephanie Poelman, Managing Director at Pherform Gym. 'Karina's story is one that needs to be told, especially in the  wake of #MeToo. That an ordinary, middle class girl from an educated family can suffer for years without anyone noticing is a testament to the widespread nature of sexual abuse against women across the world. A Girl's Faith will change you and will make you wonder: who else? A must read.' ~ Sonalie Figueiras,Co-Founder of Green Queen. 'I simply love your spirit. Fighting spirit indeed. Truly inspiring. Your strength, your resilience are a testament to us. What you have been through and what you have become defied the odds. It's heartwarming knowing you.' ~  Alain Ngalani, Founder of Impakt MMA Gym, World Champion Kickboxer. 'I am writing to you to applaud you for having the courage to write a book on a topic which continues to remain one of the darkest social taboos of our society. We sure hope that your book becomes a medium to sensitize the masses about the harsh realities of incest abuse.' ~ Supreet Dhiman, End Incest Trust.'Karina is one of the bravest women I know. Her indomitable spirit - a mixture of sass, courage and empathy has served her well. She has faced tremendous odds yet continues to slay dragons and defy worlds and, most importantly, speak her truth. Her willingness to open the door and shed light into the most private, painful experiences of her life offers a voice of hope to the millions of women across the globe who can identify with her words.' ~ Shakti Sutriasa - LCSW, MA - Founder of Decide Differently and Popular Meditation Teacher.'Karina is the 'change she wishes to see'. Through sharing her painful journey through sexual abuse by a trusted family member, and moving on to forgiving the perpetrator and becoming a counselor and supporter of others, Karina shows us to a way to move forward. Her book also raises consciousness, which is very important especially in these times when victims are mocked and laughed at by leaders of some countries and ordinary people. I have watched Karina walk through the arduous path and emerge with her faith restored in her fellow human beings and being dedicated to help make a good life for all.' ~ Rama Ramanadhan.'An inspiring true story of love, hope, and victory - and of one woman who was determined to make a difference in the wake of a crime. I applaud her ability to rise above, forgive and be a model of courage for others. If you want to know what courage looks like then please meet Karina Calver.' ~  Judy O'Beirn, International Best-selling Author of Unwavering Strength Series.'Karina embodies supreme courage in how she transcended a tragic personal life event. The stories in A Girl's Faith are both captivating and inspiring. It will be an unforgettable experience you won't want to miss; the secret to feeling alive again are within these pages.' ~ Jennie Lynn, #1 Best-selling Author of Magnetic Love.'Karina Calver holds nothing back in her memoir, A Girl's Faith. Her riveting story brings inspiration and hope to those impacted by sexual assault, and it will be used as a teaching tool to educate future generations about one of most pressing issues of our time.' ~ AJ Garcia, Director of ARM Sanctuary, Creator / Host of The Woke Stutters Podcast.  Read more From the Author Who am I and why am I bothering to write this book?

Pdf:The Hostage In The Basement: Lessons She Taught Me.The abuse kept her imprisoned but she found a way to free herself - step by step up the basement stairs. What she learned at each step can help you to escape whatever holds you hostage. Many people have asked me throughout the years how I managed to move on with my life after all that I have gone through. That is the true purpose of this book - to tell you how I did it - because for many of us, that is the hardest part, the part that nobody tells you how to do. If you survive and escape a past of abuse, how do you even start to find a new “normal?” A better “normal?” For anyone who is out there trying to move on from any difficulty you have endured, I hope you make the journey up the figurative stairs in your own life, whatever they are built of.

Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting

Pdf Parenting Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting

Pdf:Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting.A bighearted book of wisdom, wit, and insight, celebrating the love and joy of being a grandmother, from the Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist and #1 New York Times bestselling author “I am changing his diaper, he is kicking and complaining, his exhausted father has gone to the kitchen for a glass of water, his exhausted mother is prone on the couch. He weighs little more than a large sack of flour and yet he has laid waste to the living room: swaddles on the chair, a nursing pillow on the sofa, a car seat, a stroller. No one cares about order, he is our order, we revolve around him. And as I try to get in the creases of his thighs with a wipe, I look at his, let’s be honest, largely formless face and unfocused eyes and fall in love with him. Look at him and think, well, that’s taken care of, I will do anything for you as long as we both shall live, world without end, amen.” Before blogs even existed, Anna Quindlen became a go-to writer on the joys and challenges of family, motherhood, and modern life, in her nationally syndicated column. Now she’s taking the next step and going full nana in the pages of this lively, beautiful, and moving book about being a grandmother. Quindlen offers thoughtful and telling observations about her new role, no longer mother and decision-maker but secondary character and support to the parents of her grandson. She writes, “Where I once led, I have to learn to follow.” Eventually a close friend provides words to live by: “Did they ask you?” Candid, funny, frank, and illuminating, Quindlen’s singular voice has never been sharper or warmer. With the same insights she brought to motherhood in Living Out Loud and to growing older in Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, this new nana uses her own experiences to illuminate those of many others.

VIOLATED By My Own Father

Pdf Parenting VIOLATED By My Own Father

Pdf:VIOLATED By My Own Father.This is quite simply one of the most disturbing and heartbreaking stories of child abuse and neglect ever told by the actual victim of the offences. Most books on the subject are produced by people who have studied or dealt with the problem – not by someone who has suffered the shattering of emotions caused by it!Every young person has the right to be looked after and protected in life until they are old enough to look after themselves; especially by their parents and wider family, and secondly by official authorities. In contrast to what she should have expected, the sweetness and innocence of childhood was snatched from her because of constant violations by her father, and neglect by some Social Services departments. Her decision to speak out eventually caused the isolation of her family to such an extent that in their eyes the abuser was the victim.Alona’s courage is inspiring, and she has decided to tell her story mainly to give her the closure she so desires and deserves, and she hopes it may help others to know that it is possible to get through any situation no matter how difficult and cruel life can be. She also hopes that her story will encourage victims going through the same distressing trauma as she has suffered for most of her life - to speak out.There is life after abuse.

Pdf:What Do I Do So Wrong?: An Introduction to the Narcissistic Mother.What Do I Do So Wrong? is an in-depth introduction to the narcissistic mother.Often the characteristics of a narcissistic mother can be brushed off as her being "difficult" or "overbearing".

It soon unfolds, however, that this is no simple case.Determined to get to the root of Sam’s behaviour, Casey is committed to uncover his mysterious past only to find out something far darker than she ever imagined…Having recently said goodbye to their last foster child, Miller, the Watson family are taking a bit of a break. But it’s while Casey is having fun catching up with her friends that she receives a call from her new link worker. Social services are desperately trying to find a settled home for nine-year-old Sam, who has Autism and some serious behavioural problems.Removed from his mother less than a week ago, Sam has been staying with respite carers. But with two young children of their own, they now find themselves unable to hold on to the little boy as he is bullying them relentlessly. It’s not an isolated situation, either. Apparently Sam’s own siblings begged not to be placed with their older brother – they were both adamant that they were too afraid of him.The Watsons agree to accommodate Sam, who, despite his tiny stature, turns out to be quite the whirlwind – destroying anything and everything in his path. In addition to the outward behaviours, it quickly becomes evident that there is a much darker past that has blighted the boy’s life. As Casey tries to get to the bottom of it, she discovers there are no files on Sam; only the testament of his previous neighbour. Thankfully, Mrs Gallagher is only too happy to help. And to talk. But it soon transpires that there is a great deal more to Sam’s secret history…

L3

Pdf Parenting L3

Pdf:L3.L3 is a story about the resiliency of the human psyche and life after early childhood trauma. Comparisons are drawn between humans and computers and how humans have pre-programmed tools such as memory repression and dissociation to withstand soul splintering events that damage the human soul, which in many ways is similar to a computer's hard drive. This book reflects one woman's journey through the heartbreaking acts of childhood sexual abuse, parental neglect, and bullying. It delves into the repercussions of these events which lead to more heartbreak such as self-harm, bulimia, murder and suicide, and domestic violence. Somehow, despite the dark content of this tale, the woman finds humor as a way to process the events that make up her life. L3 is about how one woman utilizes coping mechanisms to split into three distinct personalities to navigate her way through the obstacle-laden path called her life, and then re-emerge years later as a convergence of these three personalities. At times, the story is heart-wrenching. At times, the story produces humor that is birthed from the tortured places of the burdened soul. This is a journey of innocence lost; a journey of traveling life with no map, direction, or purpose, and somehow managing to trip over all three.

Pdf:'Poems from the Heart' By Rosemary Ridley Vines.One of the characteristics of poetry is that it has a unique way of conveying ideas, creating mental images, provoking thought, emotional connection, and portraying experiences in human life.

Black Indian (Made in Michigan Writers)

Pdf Parenting Black Indian (Made in Michigan Writers)

Pdf:Black Indian (Made in Michigan Writers).From the Author Like my collection of poetry, Who's Afraid of Black Indians? published in 2012, my memoir, Black Indian, equally explores my life and experiences growing up in a small Mid-western city replete with Mixed race communities. Yet it's not just my story: it's my sister's story. It's my mom and aunts' story. This book is a recovery tale of landscape, legacy and inheritance. I've grown up with the stories of Black people with American Indian heritage who married whites; full flood Cherokees, according to records from my great-aunt, who married Mulattos. The ethnic intersections of these families created communities of color who knew their own origins but were forced into legal racial classification. When I was a child, I didn't know any of that. I just saw a mother with beautiful translucent skin and pitch black hair. Lining Mama up next to my aunts, they were women whose beauty proceeded them before they walked into any room. But this book also captures the rupture of identity, cycles of abuse and addiction and how we survived it. This book captures my family's beauty, our stories, our loss as well as our struggle to maintain an identity and selfhood in the constant racial re-classification, theft of land and ethnic erasure of the last three hundred years. I would love to hear any feedback on my books (hopefully nice), but I would truly love a review of my book(s). This interview shares some of my story:vertikallifemagazine.com/discovering-art/a-taste-of-ink-live-featuring-shonda-buchanan/ Read more About the Author Award-winning poet and educator Shonda Buchanan (1968) was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a daughter of Mixed Bloods, tri-racial and tri-ethnic African American, American Indian and European-descendant families who migrated from North Carolina and Virginia in the mid-1800s to Southwestern Michigan. Black Indian: A Memoir begins the saga of these migration stories exploring identity, loss and landscape. For the last 18 years, Shonda has taught Creative Writing, Composition and Critical Theory at Loyola Marymount University, Hampton University and William & Mary College. Her first book of poetry, Who's Afraid of Black Indians?, was nominated for the Black Caucus of the American Library Association and the Library of Virginia Book Awards.

No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us

Pdf Parenting No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us

Pdf:No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us.Review “Gut-wrenching, required reading.” ―Esquire, “Most Anticipated Books of 2019”“A powerful exploration of the sinister, insidious nature of domestic violence in America… Bracing and gut-wrenching, with slivers of hope throughout, this is exemplary, moving reportage on an important subject that often remains in the dark due to shame and/or fear.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review“This sympathetic look at victims, perpetrators, and intervention efforts by law enforcement and social agencies makes for compelling reading. . . Snyder's chilling body of evidence shows that domestic abuse is a pervasive epidemic that can and does happen everywhere.” ―Booklist““No Visible Bruises is a seminal and breathtaking account of why home is the most dangerous place to be a woman. Through brilliant insights and myth-busting research, compelling storytelling, and a passionate focus on truth-telling, Rachel Louise Snyder places domestic violence exactly where it should be, smack in the center of everything. A tour de force.”” ―Eve Ensler, author of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES and THE APOLOGY“This is terrifying, courageous reportage from our internal war zone, a fair and balanced telling of an unfair and unbalanced crisis in American family life. Snyder writes with stark lucidity and great compassion, and tells stories of utmost urgency with considerable narrative skill.” ―Andrew Solomon, National Book Award-winning, bestselling author of THE NOONDAY DEMON, FAR FROM THE TREE, AND FAR AND AWAY“I cannot imagine how Rachel Louise Snyder had the strength to write this book-it's like the journal of a war correspondent. By witnessing the toll of family violence, she wants to take public this private horror. No Visible Bruises is a keening for the battered and a shout of outrage for the lost, a case for the higher awareness that could make us better humans.” ―Ted Conover, author of NEWJACK, and director of NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute“No Visible Bruises snapped open my eyes to the direct link between patriarchal entitlement and violence against women, between the way men are raised to the way women are treated. From her dismantling of the term 'domestic violence,' which not only couches a pervasive public menace in homey, private terms, but echoes a sick culture in denial, to her connecting the dots between acts of terror and acts of domestic terror, Snyder's is an indispensable, important book.” ―Carina Chocano, author of YOU PLAY THE GIRL“Snyder's singular achievement is that she illuminates the dark corners of this specter as a way to understand it and thus eliminate it.” ―J. Anthony Lukas Prize, Judges' Citation for NO VISIBLE BRUISES“A fascinating chronicle of the $55-billion-a-year global denim industry.” ―The Los Angeles Times on FUGITIVE DENIM“A highly pertinent view of the fashion world today . . . from the sweatshops that feed our desire for cheap jeans, to the environmental repercussions of making them and then throwing them away” ―The Guardian on FUGITIVE DENIM“Fugitive Denim calculates the cost--environmental, political, human--of our designer duds . . . A thoughtful, ultimately hopeful look at how our choices about something as mundane as jeans can alter the lives of people 10,000 miles away.” ―Fast Company on FUGITIVE DENIM“Snyder's debut is smooth and engaging, and reads like the work of a veteran novelist.” ―Publishers Weekly on WHAT WE'VE LOST IS NOTHING“A muscular and fearless debut novel that boldly tackles the heady themes of prejudice, self-preservation, poverty and privilege.” ―Booklist on WHAT WE'VE LOST IS NOTHING“Snyder writes with the rigorous scrutiny of an investigative journalist and the deep and roving empathy of a natural-born novelist; the result is a bold and mesmerizing exploration of daily truths we don't talk about nearly enough . . . A stellar debut by an important and necessary new voice among us.” ―Andre Dubus III, author of HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG and TOWNIE, on WHAT WE'VE LOST IS NOTHING“A powerful, page-turning debut that dares to delve below the surface of our glossy American lives. You may never look at your neighbors--or yourself--the same way again.” ―David Goodwillie, author of AMERICAN SUBVERSIVE, on WHAT WE'VE LOST IS NOTHING Read more About the Author Rachel Louise Snyder's work has appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, the Washington Post, the New Republic, and elsewhere. Her other books include Fugitive Denim: A Moving Story of People and Pants in the Borderless World of Global Trade, and the novel What We've Lost is Nothing.

Loving through Your Differences: Building Strong Relationships from Separate Realities

Pdf Parenting Loving through Your Differences: Building Strong Relationships from Separate Realities

Pdf:Loving through Your Differences: Building Strong Relationships from Separate Realities.FIND HAPPINESS AND FULFILLMENT THROUGH — RATHER THAN DESPITE — YOUR DIFFERENCES Dr. James Creighton has worked with couples for decades, facilitating communication and conflict resolution and teaching them the tools to build healthy, happy relationships. He has found that many couples start out believing they like the same things, see people the same way, and share a united take on the world. But inevitably differences crop up, and it can be profoundly discouraging to find that one’s partner sees a person, situation, or decision completely differently. Although many relationships flounder at this point, Creighton shows that this can actually be an opportunity to forge stronger ties. In Loving through Your Differences, he draws on the latest research in cognitive science and developmental psychology to show how we invent our realities with our perceptual minds. He then provides clear, concrete tools for shifting our perceptions and reframing our responses. The result moves couples out of the fear and alienation of “your way or my way” and into a deep understanding of the other that allows for an “our way.” As Creighton shows, this way of being together, based on the reality of individuality rather than the illusion of sameness, sets the stage for long-term excitement, discovery, and fulfillment.

Silent Agreements: How to Free Your Relationships of Unspoken Expectations

Pdf Parenting Silent Agreements: How to Free Your Relationships of Unspoken Expectations

Pdf:Silent Agreements: How to Free Your Relationships of Unspoken Expectations.Silent Agreements will help readers define the unspoken beliefs and expectations that might be causing dissatisfaction, unhappiness, and resentment in their relationships, giving them the tools to explore these agreements and work toward healthier communication with a partner, friend, boss, or family member.If you have relationships, you've likely been part of silent agreements. Silent agreements are the implicit "rules" of your relationships that arise from unspoken beliefs and expectations that both parties hold, stemming from your earliest experiences and reinforced as you mature. They can sound something like "The person who makes more money should pay for the dates," or "My boss doesn't offer me a raise, and he knows I won't ask for one." These agreements can hinder your relationships, remaining undiscussed due to fear, aversion to conflict, feelings of obligation, or guilt. Because expectations so rarely line up and neither person will address the issue, a silent agreement can cause unhappiness and resentment on both sides. Clinical psychologists Drs. Anderson, Banks, and Owens will help you explore your agreements and work towards healthier communication with a partner, friend, boss, or family member. In the process, you'll learn more about your own motivations and how to dismantle the the beliefs that don't serve you. With guidelines and advice on how to have productive conversations about sex, money, commitment, family, the workplace, and health, this book will help you lift the silence and resolve those land-mine issues before they do irreparable damage.

Fundamentos y prácticas de comunicación no violenta: El primer manual práctico de comunicación no violenta (CNV) en español (Spanish Edition)

Pdf Parenting Fundamentos y prácticas de comunicación no violenta: El primer manual práctico de comunicación  no violenta (CNV) en español (Spanish Edition)

Pdf:Fundamentos y prácticas de comunicación no violenta: El primer manual práctico de comunicación no violenta (CNV) en español (Spanish Edition).El primer manual práctico de Comunicación No Violenta (CNV) en español, escrito por Pilar de la Torre, referente en este campo en el mundo hispanohablante.  La Comunicación No Violenta es una práctica sencilla, pero sorprendentemente poderosa. Se basa en la idea de que los seres humanos compartimos unas necesidades universales que rigen nuestro comportamiento, y que la violencia es un recurso que usamos (¡erróneamente!) para satisfacerlas. Si sabemos identificar nuestras necesidades, las necesidades de los demás y los sentimientos que las acompañan, podremos lograr una comunicación auténtica y relaciones más armoniosas.  ¿Cómo expresamos nuestros sentimientos ante un conflicto? ¿Qué necesidades originan esas emociones? ¿Qué esperamos de nosotros mismos y de los demás? ¿Cómo se sienten realmente los que nos rodean? A partir de la identificación de las necesidades y mediante técnicas de escucha y expresión, la CNV genera entornos de empatía y sinceridad beneficiosos para acercarnos los unos a los otros y convertir nuestras relaciones en aquellas que realmente anhelamos, tanto en casa como en el trabajo.  Pilar de la Torre, referente indiscutible en el campo de la CNV, reúne veinte años de experiencia en este libro, el primer manual práctico en español, que presenta las nociones básicas de esta corriente y propone una gran variedad de casos prácticos para su integración a nuestro día a día.PREGUNTAS FREQUENTES¿Qué entendemos por comunicación violenta? Todo acto comunicativo que lleve a la otra persona a cerrarse o a alejarse de uno, aunque nuestra intención sea positiva.  ¿Qué entendemos por Comunicación No Violenta (CNV)?  Cualquier cosa que digamos o no digamos, que hagamos o no hagamos, y que provoque en la otra persona sensación de cuidado, consideración y comprensión.  ¿Podemos utilizar la CNV en el día a día?  Sí. Por muchas razones: para solucionar desencuentros, profundizar, crecer, ayudar, superar situaciones de bloqueo, escuchar, disfrutar de las relaciones, lograr mayor libertad y un largo etcétera.  ¿Por qué decimos que los conflictos pueden enriquecernos?  Toda relación viva conlleva desencuentro y conflicto. La resolución satisfactoria de un conflicto nutre la relación, la enriquece, genera mayor cercanía. La resolución no satisfactoria de los conflictos termina por deteriorar las relaciones, invariablemente.  ¿Cuáles son los límites de la CNV?  La CNV no significa decir sí a todo, sino también marcar los límites que necesitemos. Nos han enseñado a poner límites cuando ya es demasiado tarde, cuando estamos hartos; no hemos aprendido a poner límites amorosos, cuidadosos, cálidos, firmes y respetuosos.

The Adventurous Eaters Club: Fuss-Free Family Meals Kids Will Love and Parents Will, Too

Pdf Parenting The Adventurous Eaters Club: Fuss-Free Family Meals Kids Will Love and Parents Will, Too

Pdf:The Adventurous Eaters Club: Fuss-Free Family Meals Kids Will Love and Parents Will, Too.The social media influencer and wildly popular star of Supernatural and his wife invite families to become food adventurers—teaching parents how to help their children cultivate a lifelong, healthy, and joyful relationship with real food.Chicken nuggets. Hot dogs. Macaroni and cheese. They’re easy to throw together after a long and stressful work day and even better, our kids love them. When Misha and Vicki Collins’ son, West, was a toddler, he rejected any food that wasn’t bland and beige. At first, Misha and Vicki succumbed—anything to end mealtime battles and get West to eat. But the processed fruit packs and buttered noodles they fed him were setting him up for a lifetime of bad eating—and poor health. Misha and Vicki hit on an ingenious idea, to rely on what they love best—adventure—and invited their kids into the kitchen, allowing them to play and explore. Over time, their children each developed a more adventurous palate and sense of autonomy and learned to see food as something to celebrate. The whole Collins clan benefitted—and strengthened their family’s bonds. In The Adventurous Eaters Club, Misha and Vicki chronicle their story of transformation: how they went from harried parents squeezing processed yogurt into their two-year-old’s mouth to parents whose children eat salad as comfort food, and how they created a home where mealtime doesn’t involve coercion, trickery, or tears.Drawing on nutrition studies, child development research, interviews with early childhood educators, and advice from pediatricians and therapists, Misha and Vicki distill the strategies they’ve found most useful in forming their Adventure eating philosophy into 10 essential food rules. Filled with funny stories, tips that work, beautiful full-color photographs, and over 100 creative, delicious, whimsical recipes little hands will love to eat and help prepare—including Green Eggs & Ham Popovers, Shitake Crispies, Salad Popsicles, and Kale and Bacon Sushi—The Adventurous Eaters Club provides the support, encouragement, and practical advice parents need to turn their kids into lifetime adventurous and healthy eaters.

Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting

Pdf Parenting Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting

Pdf:Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting.From a distinctive, inimitable voice, a wickedly funny and fascinating romp through the strange and often contradictory history of Western parenting.Why do we read our kids fairy tales about homicidal step-parents? How did helicopter parenting develop if it used to be perfectly socially acceptable to abandon your children? Why do we encourage our babies to crawl if crawling won't help them learn to walk?These are just some of the questions that came to Jennifer Traig when - exhausted, frazzled, and at sea after the birth of her two children - she began to interrogate the traditional parenting advice she'd been conditioned to accept at face value. The result is Act Natural, a hilarious and deft dissection of the history of Western parenting, authored with the signature biting wit and deep insights for which Traig has become known. Moving from ancient Rome to Puritan New England to the Dr. Spock craze of mid-century America, Traig cheerfully explores historic and present-day parenting techniques ranging from the misguided, to the nonsensical, to the truly horrifying. Be it childbirth, breastfeeding, or the ways in which we teach children how to sleep, walk, eat, and talk, she leaves no stone unturned in her quest for answers: Have our techniques actually evolved into something better? Or are we still just scrambling in the dark?

AFTER DIVORCE: You Can Live Again!

Pdf Parenting AFTER DIVORCE: You Can Live Again!

Pdf:AFTER DIVORCE: You Can Live Again!.This book contains keys to recover from divorce and have a full life again. Instead of walking blindly thru the trauma, these keys will give understanding of what we will experience, and help to facilitate healing. With knowledge comes understanding, followed by wisdom in how to overcome any obstacle we may be facing. It will also help singles hoping for a mate, or married couples to have a better relationship. The keys help us to discover what keeps us bound, from our dysfunctional childhood experiences, which I believe is the root cause/main reason so many end up in divorce. Our unhealthy baggage from earlier years is still shaping opinions of ourselves, and also how we expect others to treat us. Jesus Christ came to set the prisoners free! I hope this book helps many to reach that freedom, and truly live their lives in joy and expectation of what the Lord can do for them.

Throughout a difficult divorce, a life-changing experience with a homeless man, a surprising encounter with a psychic, and much more, this warrior fought his way out of the trenches. He experienced numerous setbacks and incredible feats, which ultimately softened his heart and allowed him to embrace a new reality, one that brought him closer to himself and God.

We can't control the bad things that may come up in our human experience but we can control how we react to them.

He Actually Left. Now What?

Pdf Parenting He Actually Left. Now What?

Pdf:He Actually Left. Now What?.Here you are, facing a divorce you didn't ask for and did not want. Your husband has become a person you do not recognize, cold-hearted and distant. You have so many feelings and realizations, so many decisions to make and obstacles to overcome, as you go through the process of ending a marriage you had no intention of ever ending. How do you even begin?When she went through her divorce, Jenna downloaded many resources to help understand how her marriage got to this place and how to get through the pain of being abandoned, but none of these resources fully captured what it felt like to be in this experience. She became a member of multiple divorce help groups and noticed all women in her situation were experiencing the same things: these men left without much explanation, they said and did the same things on their way out the door, the grief for each woman was identical, and none were prepared for how painful this experience was going to be. Jenna wrote this book with these women in mind. While in her own self-reflection and therapy of going through her divorce, she captured the collective experience, stage by stage, that women feel during this time. Each chapter is a stage in the process; the reader can read it as a whole book, or each section can be read on its own when it is needed the most. Ch 1: Read This Chapter in the BeginningCh 2: Read This Chapter When You Are Asking How He Could Do This To YouCh 3: Read This Chapter When You Find Out About the AffairCh 4: Read This Chapter if You Have KidsCh 5: Read This Chapter When You Have to Redefine the Relationship with Your Ex and the Other WomanCh 6: Read This Chapter When You Think There is Something Wrong with YouCh 7: Read This Chapter When You Are Called Vindictive or BitterCh 8: Read This Chapter When You Are Feeling Guilty or AngryCh 9: Read This Chapter When You Feel HopelessCh 10: Read This Chapter When You Are SufferingCh 11: Read This Chapter When You Can't Stop Thinking About the Other WomanCh 12: Read This Chapter If You Have Questions About the Bible, God, the Church and Your DivorceCh 13: Read This Chapter When It's Time to Accept RealityCh 14: Read This Chapter When It's Time to Stop Engaging With Your ExCh 15: Read This Chapter If He Says He Wants You BackCh 16: Read This Chapter When It's Time to Rebuild Your Self-WorthCh 17: Read This Chapter When It's Time to Discuss the Legalities of DivorceCh 18: Read This Chapter When You Think It's Time to Start Dating AgainCh 19: Give This Chapter to Your Friends and FamilyShe realized this isn't just about the men and the pain they cause, but about how the women left behind can grow in their self-worth, stop blaming themselves for the ends of their marriages, and become whole again. This book validates so many feelings women have during this time and identifies the pain all women feel, but also helps women find hope. Women can take control back over their lives and can move forward with a healthy outlook for a bright future!

Sacred Cows: The Truth About Divorce & Marriage

Pdf Parenting Sacred Cows: The Truth About Divorce & Marriage

Pdf:Sacred Cows: The Truth About Divorce & Marriage.A husband-and-wife doctor team offers fresh and startling perspective on one of our most cherished and misunderstood institutions.   Drs. Astro and Danielle Teller know better than most that finding the right partner in life doesn’t always happen the first time around. Through their own divorces they learned how widely held cultural assumptions and misinformation that nobody thinks to question—what they refer to as “sacred cows”—create unnecessary heartache for people who are already suffering through a terrible time.   Do you think, for example, that the divorce rate in the United States is rising? Or that children are harmed by divorce? Most people do, but it turns out that neither of these notions is supported by the data. Combining the rigor that has established them as leaders in their respective fields along with a dose of good-natured humor, the Tellers ask readers to take a fresh look at seven common sacred cows: the Holy Cow, the Expert Cow, the Selfish Cow, the Defective Cow, the Innocent Victim Cow, the One True Cow, and the Other Cow. This is not a book that is “for” marriage or “for” divorce, but “for” the freedom to decide how to live most honestly and happily either as part of a couple or a single person.

Remember the story of Pandora's enticing box, what it contained and how she innocently unleashed all manner of evil, sorrow and pain when she opened it? In the hands of children, our modern-day boxes of cells phones, tablets, computers and televisions are very similar to Pandora's. However, unlike Pandora, we know what's in our internet-enabled devices. We know that in addition to useful information, our kids’ boxes hold the disturbing and potentially life-altering material we call pornography. So what do parents do when their children come face to face with porn and get trapped by its riptide of darkness? Closing Pandora's Box instills hope and inspires courage to fight one of the many demons escaping today’s boxes. Authored by psychologist, Dr. Gail Poyner, who treats adults, children and teens who use pornography, Closing Pandora's Box is a book designed for parents who want to help their children and teens avoid and develop the skills to stop using this devastatingly addictive material. The book introduces the five-step CLOSE plan, which assists parents in learning about pornography addiction so they can teach their children skill-based behaviors to close their own Pandora's Box.

The Sisterhood: A Love Letter to the Women Who Have Shaped Me

Pdf Parenting The Sisterhood: A Love Letter to the Women Who Have Shaped Me

Pdf:The Sisterhood: A Love Letter to the Women Who Have Shaped Me.For fans of Bryony Gordon and Dolly Alderton, The Sisterhood is an honest and hilarious book which celebrates the ways in which women connect with each other.'My five sisters are the only women I would ever kill for. And they are the only women I have ever wanted to kill.'Imagine living between the pages of Pride And Prejudice, in the Bennett household. Now, imagine how the Bennett girls as they'd be in the 21st century - looking like the Kardashian sisters, but behaving like the Simpsons. This is the house Daisy Buchanan grew up in,Daisy's memoir The Sisterhood explores what it's like to live as a modern woman by examining some examples close to home - her adored and infuriating sisters. There's Beth, the rebellious contrarian; Grace, the overachiever with a dark sense of humour; Livvy, the tough girl who secretly cries during adverts; Maddy, essentially Descartes with a beehive; and Dotty, the joker obsessed with RuPaul's Drag Race and bears. In this tender, funny and unflinchingly honest account Daisy examines her relationship with her sisters and what it's made up of - friendship, insecurity jokes, jealousy and above all, love - while celebrating the ways in which women connect with each other and finding the ways in which we're all sisters under the skin.

Don't You Ever: My Mother and Her Secret Son

Pdf Parenting Don't You Ever: My Mother and Her Secret Son

Pdf:Don't You Ever: My Mother and Her Secret Son.Review “In lesser hands, this memoir could’ve flopped, but Bishop is a seasoned award-winning newspaper reporter who reveals a fascinating segment of her life in clear, unflinching style.... [Don’t You Ever is] brave and terrific.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)“A powerful study in empathy.” (Charlotte Observer)“In this profound memoir, Bishop takes an open-hearted and unflinching look at a family history that is equal parts love story and requiem for a brother she barely knew. Bishop turns her formidable investigative journalism skills inward to unearth long-simmering class and culture divides in bucolic rural Virginia.” (Beth Macy, author of Truevine and Factory Man)“Bishop digs deep into her own past, exposing class structure...genteel poverty, self-loathing, and self-doubt in a deeply honest manner… This powerful tale lays bare the cancer of shame and its often devastating results.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))“To the extraordinary benefit of readers, Bishop turns her prize-winning journalistic skills towards her family’s history in her first book…. Bishop’s research and clear, heartfelt writing render her story deeply personal and culturally essential.” (Booklist (starred review))“The narrative moves fluidly… Both of the author’s key subjects come across as baffling, complicated individuals, deserving of love and respect despite their flaws, shaped by a society that viewed a mother who had a child out of wedlock as shameful. A precise and honest depiction of a family wound that has still not entirely healed.” (Kirkus Reviews) Read more From the Back Cover From prizewinning journalist Mary Carter Bishop, a moving and beautifully rendered memoir about the half brother she didn’t know existed, that hauntingly explores family, class, secrets, and fateWhile applying for a passport as an adult, Mary Carter Bishop made a shocking discovery: she had a secret half brother. Her mother, a farm manager’s wife on a country estate, told Mary Carter that the abandoned boy was a youthful “mistake” from an encounter with a married man. There’d been a home for unwed mothers; foster parents; an orphanage.Nine years later, Mary Carter tracked Ronnie down at the barbershop where he worked and found a near-broken man—someone kind and happy to meet her, but someone deeply and irreversibly damaged by a life of neglect and abuse at the hands of an uncaring system. He was also disfigured due to a rare medical condition that would eventually kill him, three years after their reunion. During that window, Mary Carter grew close to Ronnie, and as she learned more about him, she became consumed by his story. How had Ronnie’s life gone so wrong when hers had gone so well? How could she reconcile the doting, generous mother she knew with a woman who could not bring herself to acknowledge her own son?Digging deep into her family’s lives for understanding, Mary Carter unfolds a sweeping narrative of religious intolerance, poverty, fear, ambition, class, and social expectations. Don’t You Ever is a modern Dickensian tale about a child seemingly cursed from birth; a woman shattered by guilt; a husband plagued by self-doubt; a prodigal daughter whose innocence was cruelly snatched away—all living in genteel central Virginia, a world defined by extremes of rural poverty and fabulous wealth.A riveting memoir about a family haunted by a shameful secret, Don’t You Ever is a powerful story of a woman’s search for her long-hidden sibling and of the factors that profoundly impact our individual destinies.

Edna's Gift: How My Broken Sister Taught Me to Be Whole

Pdf Parenting Edna's Gift: How My Broken Sister Taught Me to Be Whole

Pdf:Edna's Gift: How My Broken Sister Taught Me to Be Whole.Review “Edna’s Gift is the exquisite story of sisters caught in a lifelong struggle for healing and wholeness . . . It moved me profoundly, to laughter and tears, and deserves a place on your bookshelf alongside classic memoirs of sister love, including Elizabeth Lesser’s Marrow.”―Mark Matousek, author of The Boy He Left Behind and When You’re Falling, Dive“Edna’s grace and indomitable spirit in spite of her many challenges will inspire readers as it inspired her sister, Susan―and proves that our life’s greatest teacher often turns out to be the person we least expect. Rudnick’s lovely and moving memoir of her own journey toward fully embracing Edna―and herself―is a gift to us all.” ―Barbara Graham, New York Times best-selling author of Eye of My Heart“Two lives that forever intertwine will draw you in and keep you reading. Each is slightly broken but uniquely whole . . . This book will stay with me for a long time.”―Kay Berry, an administrator of MRKH Experiences, Advice and Support“A powerful memoir of a sister’s love for and devotion to her developmentally disabled sister . . . For anyone intrigued by the process of transformation, Edna’s Gift is a source of inspiration.”―Judith Ruskay Rabinor, PhD, author of A Starving Madness and Befriending Your Ex After Divorce“Edna’s Gift is an honest, unwavering love story between two sisters―one of whom has developmental delays. Rudnick’s writing had me hooked from the first page.”―Linda Atwell, author of Loving Lindsey “The relationship between ‘typical’ and ‘special needs’ siblings is complicated―often not reciprocal in the traditional sense and sometimes fraught with conflicting emotions, it can also bring unexpected riches. Susan Rudnick has given us an eloquently crafted exploration of how her life has been shaped by her sister. The result is an honest, insightful and love-filled memoir.”―Theresa Sullivan, author of Mikey and Me“Beautifully written. . . I literally could not put it down.”―Barbara K Schwartz, PhD, author of Hopeful Paths“A powerful and intimate account of the trials, tribulations, challenges, and opportunities of being a sibling of a person with disabilities.”―Avidan Milevsky, PhD, Ariel University, author of Sibling Issues in Therapy Read more About the Author For over forty years Susan Rudnick, LCSW, has been listening to people tell their stories in her Manhattan practice of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. In Edna’s Gift, she tells hers. The seed for her memoir was “Coming Home to Wholeness,” a chapter she contributed to Into the Mountain Stream, a book of personal reflections on psychotherapy and Buddhist Experience. Rudnick, a Zen practitioner, has published haikus as well as articles about psychotherapy in professional journals. Culled from thousands of submissions, one of her haikus appears in New York City Haiku: From the Readers of The New York Times. She and her husband live in Westchester NY, but also love to spend time at their cabin in the Catskills. Being a parent is her greatest joy. Read more

Barbara took her experiences in stride, grounding herself in the beauty of her surroundings—an appreciation stemming from her Dakota roots. Lost Without the River is the story of a girl who grows up, leaves home, and eventually discovers an appreciation for the farm she left behind.

Pdf Parenting The Perfect Catch: Fishing, Family and Friendship

Pdf:The Perfect Catch: Fishing, Family and Friendship."For any man who has ever wanted to make his father proud and bond with his brothers, you must read The Perfect Catch. It's perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors, loves to fish, and is not afraid to put love back into the tricky dynamic of male relationships in the family and among friends." (Dr. Marty Becker, "America's Veterinarian")Seventy-three-year-old sportscaster Bob Walsh didn't bother to ask his three adult sons if they would like to join him on a Thanksgiving week fly fishing trip to western New York before he booked and paid for it. It had been five years since all four men had been together, and they didn't have another five years to wait.  As prized steelhead trout returned to the river to spawn where they were born, the Walshes retraced their roots, reeling in fish and each other; settling old beefs, reconnecting as friends, and bonding as men. And oh yes, one unforgettable fish was caught by the man who made it all happen. The Perfect Catch is written for men by a man. It is a book that wives will want their husbands to listen to and a book that any decent man should have in his collection.

Pdf Parenting Many Hands Make Light Work: A Memoir

Pdf:Many Hands Make Light Work: A Memoir.Review 'Part childhood memoir, part parenting manual, and part home-improvement guide, this nostalgic and charming Midwest coming-of-age story makes one yearn for a bygone era. This large and boisterous family, led by a most endearing patriarch, is utterly delightful.'―Mary Carlomagno, author of Best Friend for Hire'Try not to be too jealous of a childhood spent with eight siblings, great parents, a Midwestern town that gave kids free-range, and an era that trusted all children to rise to the occasion (even occasions involving real live lions). Anyone who remembers―and longs for―a free-range childhood will love sinking into Many Hands. A gem of a book.'―Lenore Skenazy, president of Let Grow and founder of Free-Range Kids“The 1970s might have been the Me Decade for the rest of the world, but the nine Stritzel kids discover their best and truest selves not as wayward individualists but as a unified team. In the college town of Ames, Iowa, led by their frugal father and hardworking mother, these kids welcome the world with open arms, high spirits, and hard work. Many Hands Make Light Work is the most cheerful childhood memoir you will ever read.” ―Laura Kalpakian, National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship recipient and award-winning author of The Great Pretenders'Written in the tradition of Cheaper by the Dozen and in the spirit of Erma Bombeck, Many Hands Make Light Work is a valentine, pure and simple, to the large, boisterous, old-fashioned family from which the author happily hails.'―Madeleine Blais, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of To the New Owners'Many Hands Make Light Work is the laugh-out-loud tale of a regimented yet happy-go-lucky, large Catholic Midwestern family. Masterfully written, this charming, nostalgic story is a blueprint for the modern family, showing how family bonds can steer each of us to our true north.'―Colleen Haggerty, finalist for the Indie Excellence Book Award, author of A Leg to Stand On: An Amputee’s Walk Into Motherhood Read more About the Author Cheryl Stritzel McCarthy and her eight siblings grew up with a paintbrush in their hands and a song in their hearts. As soon as they were old enough to wrench a nail out of ancient lumber―so it could be used again―they were put to work renovating old houses in Ames, Iowa. Cheryl’s growing-up years included babysitting for a local family that kept a lion as a pet. A real, adolescent-aged lion. Uncaged. Using a flyswatter to defend herself, she survived the lion, and today is a freelance journalist for The Wall Street Journal as well as the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune. The Tribune distributes her articles to newspapers and websites around the country, such as The Seattle Times, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Baltimore Sun, and Orlando Sentinel. Her previous book, USA to the UK: The Easy Way, a lighthearted look at moving overseas, was published by British Petroleum’s London headquarters for an international readership.

Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World

Pdf Parenting Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World

Pdf:Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World.Today millions of kids are stuck in a world that doesn't respect, support, or embrace who they really are - these are what Deborah Reber is calling the "differently wired" kids, the one in five children with ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger's, giftedness, anxiety, sensory processing disorder, and other neurodifferences. Their challenges are many. But for the parents who love them, the challenges are just as hard - struggling to find the right school, the right therapist, the right parenting group while feeling isolated and harboring endless internal doubts about what's normal, what's not, and how to handle it all.     But now there's hope. Written by Deborah Reber, a best-selling author and mother in the midst of an eye-opening journey with her son who is twice exceptional (he has ADHD, Asperger's, and is highly gifted), Differently Wired is a how-to, a manifesto, a book of wise advice, and the best kind of been-there, done-that companion.     On the one hand it's a book of saying NO, and how it's time to say no to trying to fit your round-peg kid into society's square holes, no to educational and social systems that don't respect your child, no to the anxiety and fear that keep parents stuck. And then it's a book of YES. By offering 18 paradigm shifts - what she calls "tilts" - Reber shows how to change everything. How to "Get Out of Isolation and Connect." "Stop Fighting Who Your Child Is and Lean In." "Let Go of What Others Think." "Create a World Where Your Child Can Feel Secure." "Find Your People (and Ditch the Rest)." "Help Your Kids Embrace Self-Discovery." And through these alternative ways of being, discover how to stay open, pay attention, and become an exceptional parent to your exceptional child.

Yoga for Children and Young People with Autism

Pdf Parenting Yoga for Children and Young People with Autism

Pdf:Yoga for Children and Young People with Autism.Review I would recommend Michael's works to anyone within education, his yoga games are uncomplicated and the resources are first class! This book is user friendly, but also allows the reader to benefit from Michael's vast experience of not only teaching yoga, but successfully delivering within special educational needs settings. The games, sequences and postures within this book are suitable for both the beginner as well as experienced professionals. Author: Ryan Jones, Assistant Headteacher at Treetops School, UKThis is a masterpiece of a book for those teaching Yoga to children anywhere on the autistic spectrum. Michael gives clear guidelines as to how to engage the children's interest while considering the individual conditions of autism with structure and consistency. It works and is just brilliant. Author: Wendy Teasdill, Teacher Trainer for the British Wheel of YogaThis collection is another gem from Chisswick. His structured and inclusive approach to yoga for those with autism is clear, user-friendly and most importantly, fun! There are so many ideas and approaches here that practitioners and parents will find invaluable. At a time when we are becoming increasingly aware of the lifelong importance of well-being and mental health for all, teaching yoga is a wonderful way to equip a vulnerable group of children with skills that will support their well-being for a long time to come! Author: Catherine McNerney, Assistant Head at Phoenix School, London, UKAmongst the expressive visuals and easy to follow yoga activities I've come to expect with Michael's books, you'll find some real life insights into engaging children across a broad range of sensory needs. I am by no means a yoga practitioner, but by following the game-led and goal-focused approach championed by Michael I'm able to confidently deliver activities that engage everyone in the class. It's no secret that children are more likely to be receptive to physical activity if it's fun but Michael's knowledge goes further by really considering the differing sensory needs of the children creating a balanced and nurturing environment. The structure and repetition of the activities breeds consistency, giving me the assurance of delivering a manageable, enjoyable, but above all achievable yoga lesson for all.

Don't Squeeze the Spaceman's Taco: Lessons Learned from My Son with Autism

Pdf Parenting Don't Squeeze the Spaceman's Taco: Lessons Learned from My Son with Autism

Pdf:Don't Squeeze the Spaceman's Taco: Lessons Learned from My Son with Autism.My name is Kelly Jude Melerine and I’m a proud father of a teenage son named Cade. Cade has autism. Cade has love. Cade has soul. And to those that think I should place Cade in a home, Cade has a home. I write about autism and the effects that it has on my household in my memoir Don’t Squeeze the Spaceman's Taco: Lessons Learned from My Son with Autism. Why the odd title? It's just one of my son's unique phrases that we refer to as “Cadeisms.” My book is very honest and filled with love, laughter and tears. It also provides a glimpse into my own personal childhood growing up along the bayous of southeastern Louisiana with a mother who suffered from mental illness. It was while my mother was at her breaking point that she’d write inspirational poetry. Mom’s poetry guides me through the chaos that consumes my life today. This isn’t a typical self-help guide to coping with autism and nor should it be treated as such. Life with autism is anything but typical. This is a story of family. Not the type that you see on TV commercials with perfectly decorated homes and saintly well-behaved children. But the type of family that breaks the rules, kicks holes in walls and makes spectacles in public places. This is a story of life. Not the type that most would strive to achieve. But the type of life that tests your limits, beats you down and leaves you in a constant state of turmoil. It’s is a story of lessons learned through heartache and chaos. It’s about taking a shit sandwich and turning it into a fully dressed shrimp po-boy. It’s about laughter through tears and strength through forgiveness. It’s about facing unthinkable challenges and tackling our biggest fears no matter how ill prepared we are. Don’t Squeeze the Spaceman’s Taco is a story about autism and what a family does to stay strong.

Pdf:I'm Different..I'm Special!: By Shama Farag.Inspired by all the differences that I have learned, I wrote this book. I believe we are different in a way or another, we are all different in someone's eyes. So, we have to work on our inclusivity, coexistence, and acceptance for others. We can't add up to someone personal struggles, we can't make people battle because of the way they look, their skin color, their curly hair, their mental abilities, where they came from or the faith they believe. Why? because this is humanity and life and how it works.

Tech Screen Anxiety 2019: Live Free Again Offline, Unplugging Calms the Mind

Pdf Parenting Tech Screen Anxiety 2019: Live Free Again Offline, Unplugging Calms the Mind

Pdf:Tech Screen Anxiety 2019: Live Free Again Offline, Unplugging Calms the Mind.Tech Screen Anxiety 2019, by Dave Masko. There is a “human” sensation of loss, the weight of grief when wasting most of your waking hours staring at “screens” as some sort of voyeur who is so lost and lonely online in 2019 that they reject real life. Although some five years have passed since that auspicious moment in Della Norris choose to alter the course of her reality and “unplug from the tech beast.” Norris, 29, is now serving as a “digital drug counselor” here along Oregon’s peaceful and mostly TECH FREE coast. Prior to quitting tech, Norris was a computer science student at Oregon State University (OSU) in Corvallis. “I changed to pre-med and decided nursing was my new career choice after I got off of digital crack,” added the young woman during a recent Feb. 6, 2019 interview outside the OSU campus at a trendy café that features a big NO TECH sign posted on the front door. “We feel really safe from social networking platforms that are mostly designed to surveil and data mine users for all ITs worth; while anyone who rejects this ‘Big Brother’ intrusion must unplug and fight for their mind now in 2019 before it’s too late,” explained Norris in what seemed like an existential standoff between her former life as a techie and now as an information technology professional. “When I was a somewhat innocent computer science student, I looked deep into the depth of my information technology habits and was horrified to learn I really had no friends to speak of other than school chums who texted and e-mailed and stuff,” explained Norris with a look of confusion on her face. “I could feel this intensity in my heart and mind that I just ‘existed’ in this techie bubble and I hated IT!” Norris now helps young information technology addicts kick this horrible need to “stare at screens all day.” As Norris enjoyed real life after “unplugging,” she saw her image reflected in the mirror of her mind’s eye and “that’s when I said to myself ‘stop this tech madness now or lose your mind or kill yourself. Take your pick.” Once off her tech leash, Norris soon fell in love, found new work in digital drug counseling and is now expecting a child who she says will “grow-up tech free.” In turn, this special “new journalism” Kindle e-book spotlights the evil that is un-checked information technology addiction with essays that explain why users should never underestimate the addicting power of daily tech use. “Look, I’m not an idiot. I know our world is fully wired and I know our daughter will need to use information technology but I don’t think my child will have to live and breathe tech 24/7 like my former OSU classmates and friends from high school. IT sucks the big one and that’s why I’m talking to you for this new journalism expose of digital technology addiction in 2019,” said Norris with a real spark of pride in her eyes. After all, the pulsating light of mobile device and other tech “screens” is almost impossible to ignore, avoid or put down; while there is immense peace “when you unplug for a few hours, a day or even a long weekend. I highly recommend unplugging if you are not having sex or proper interpersonal relations,” added Norris sounding like the digital drug counselor that she is.

Chattanooga Hugs: One Woman's Response to a Lifetime of God Pokes

Pdf Parenting Chattanooga Hugs: One Woman's Response to a Lifetime of God Pokes

Pdf:Chattanooga Hugs: One Woman's Response to a Lifetime of God Pokes.Is it possible to feel like a 30-year-old when you've just entered your 70's? That was Susan P. Spurgeon's experience after retiring to her hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee. She says that God poked her all her life until she finally said, "Okay, I get your message." A genuine smile lights her eyes as she says that her life has been filled with joy and energy and a fullness of love for others ever since. Her goal, with God's guidance, has been to make Chattanooga "the most positively connected city in the United States." Chattanooga Hugs brings people together from all walks of life.Hugs can come in many forms: physical, virtual, a smile, a kind word. Chattanooga Hugs is a movement that envisions connecting the city another way - with positive words that share love and acceptance of each other. Inspired by the Free Hugs Campaign, it all began with physical hugs. However, that can't spread the connection far enough or fast enough. Chattanooga Hugs takes the approach of spreading love and acceptance through a positive word card attached to a blank card, effectively becoming a verbal hug. Recipients can then put their own positive word to the blank card and pass on the verbal hug to anyone, anywhere, at anytime.

Pdf:Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting.Review Praise for Anna Quindlen “[Quindlen] serves up generous portions of her wise, commonsensical, irresistibly quotable take on life. . . . What Nora Ephron does for body image and Anne Lamott for spiritual neuroses, Quindlen achieves on the home front.”—NPR, about Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake “A panopticon of life in this decade, sure to be valuable to future social historians.

Pdf Parenting Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting

Pdf:Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting.Mother, mother-in-law, grandmother - the Pulitzer-winning columnist and #1 bestselling author reflects on the roles we play throughout our lives, sharing personal stories and advice on the special joys and complexities of middle age. It's a little challenging to suss out why exactly it can be so magical.... All I know is: The hand. The little hand that takes yours, small and soft as feathers. I'm happy our grandson does not yet have sophisticated language or a working knowledge of personal finance, because if he took my hand and said, "Nana, can you sign your 401(k) over to me," I can imagine myself thinking, well, I don't really need a retirement fund, do I? And besides, look at those eyelashes. Or the greeting. Sometimes Arthur sees me and yells "Nana!" in the way some people might say "ice cream!" and others say "shoe sale!" No one else has sounded that happy to see me in many many years. Before blogs even existed, Anna Quindlen became a go-to writer on the joys and challenges of family, motherhood, and modern life, in her nationally syndicated column. Now she's taking the next step and going full Nana in this lively, beautiful, and moving book about being a grandmother. Quindlen offers thoughtful and telling observations about her new role, no longer mother and decision-maker but secondary character and support to the parents of her grandson. She writes, "Where I once led, I have to learn to follow." Eventually a close friend provides words to live by: "Did they ask you?" Candid, funny, frank, and illuminating, Quindlen's singular voice has never been sharper or warmer. With the same insights she brought to motherhood in Living Out Loud and to growing older in Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, this new nana uses her own experiences to illuminate those of many others.

My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl

Pdf Parenting My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl

Pdf:My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl.Review D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review'The difference between Shabnam's choices and those of many Iranian women lies in her determination to realize her dreams against all odds: dreams that evolve into a bid for freedom under impossible circumstances. How does one dream of leaving the country when there is no means of departure? And what will happen when she is exposed to so much unfamiliar freedom in later years that she experiences a stark disconnect between her bitter childhood struggles and her much-changed world?She reflects: 'How could I not hate the male-dominant culture heavily influenced by Islamic dictatorship that had stolen those opportunities from me during the first thirty-one years of my life, filling my heart with guilt and shame? And yet, I counted days that I had no one to speak Farsi to. And yet, I cried when I heard the Iranian national anthem. And yet, I screamed happily when Iran's soccer team made its way to the World Cup.'Many autobiographies by immigrants discuss struggles with repressive regimes, the bid for freedom made by coming to America, and cultural conflicts experienced upon arrival; but Shabnam's survey of past and present ideals and their impact on her ability to assimilate makes for an engrossing survey that goes beyond most immigrant stories.Another difference between her story and others is her focus on not just coming of age and leaving her country, but living in it through regime changes. Her warm observations of her country, its people, and its culture offer simple reflections on daily life challenges and objectives: 'I realized people in cities all over Iran longed for freedoms as simple as running a business without bribes.' Read more About the Author Shabnam Curtis the author of My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl was born and raised in Tehran, experiencing the Iranian Revolution of 1979 firsthand. In 2004 she immigrated to the United States, where she now works as a project performance analyst and in her free time reads works by such authors as James Baldwin, Azar Nafisi, and Isabel Allende. Shabnam teaches memoir writing workshops and is working on her second memoir. She lives in Sterling, Virginia, with her husband and two dogs. Read more

Motherland: A Memoir of Love, Loathing, and Longing

Pdf Parenting Motherland: A Memoir of Love, Loathing, and Longing

Pdf:Motherland: A Memoir of Love, Loathing, and Longing.A richly textured, multilayered story about mothers and daughters, aging and time, loathing and love from the James Beard Award-winning author of the critically acclaimed memoir Poor Man's Feast, the blog of the same name, and the Washington Post column Feeding My Mother.Elissa and Rita have forever struggled to find their place in each other's worlds. Rita, an overreaching, makeup-addicted, narcissistic Manhattan singer couldn't be more different from Elissa, her gay, taciturn New England writer daughter. Stuck in an outrageous maelstrom of codependency, mother and daughter cannot seem to extricate themselves from the center of each other's lives. Motherland is their universal story: a kaleidoscopic journey built on the ferocity of mother-daughter love, moral obligation, and the possibility and promise of healing. Having survived a harrowing childhood at the hands of her mother, Elissa is finally settled in Connecticut with her wife of almost twenty years. After much time, therapy, and wine, Elissa is at last in a healthy place, orbiting around her mother, but keeping far enough away from her to preserve the independent, quiet life she has built for herself. All of this is suddenly at risk when Rita, whose days are spent traversing the streets of Manhattan from Bergdorf's to Bloomingdale's and back again, suffers an incapacitating fall that leaves her fully dependent on her only child. Forced to confront her mother's desperate need for beauty, her view of the world through a medley of men, her lost days in the spotlight, addiction, and the money that has mysteriously disappeared in the name of maintaining her youth, Elissa must navigate the waters of their shared history, obligation, the problems of caregiving and age, and the frenetic, co-dependent love that has defined their obsessive relationship. Motherland asks the universal mother-daughter question: How much love is too much love? Filled with tenderness, wry irreverence, and unforgettable characters, Motherland is an exploration of what it means to escape from the shackles of the past only to have to face them again, finally, in the name of peace and the fragile mother-daughter bond.

My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl

Pdf Parenting My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl

Pdf:My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl.On a cold night in 1978, seven-year-old Shabnam Shahmohammad clung to her mother in a Tehran apartment while the sounds of gunshots rang out in the street: The Iranian Revolution was at hand. She and her family survived that night, but as the Islamic fundamentalists took the power over, she grew up watching her father take his beloved books away to burn, his friends be arrested and disappear, and women like her mother grow ever more marginalized. Confused by her father’s communist ideology, her mother’s conservative religious beliefs, and the regime’s oppressive rules, she developed a deep longing to live a different life.Finding herself being married at nineteen, she naively dreamed to team up and discover an adventurous life. When she gave birth to a daughter whose future, she realized, mattered more to her than her own, she had to find a way to unlock her little girl’s possibilities. She longed to emigrate, but with Western countries’ embassies mostly absent from Tehran, options for escaping Iran were limited.My Persian Paradox: Memories of an Iranian Girl is a tale of resilience facing oppression and dictatorship along with fighting with narrow traditional and restrictive cultural rules. This memoir is a journey of self-discovery, mother-daughter relationship obstacles, forbidden love, and the universal desire for freedom.

Bound: A Daughter, a Domme, and an End-of-Life Story

Pdf Parenting Bound: A Daughter, a Domme, and an End-of-Life Story

Pdf:Bound: A Daughter, a Domme, and an End-of-Life Story.Review “In this fascinating exploration of a complex mother-daughter relationship, Elizabeth Wood comes to terms with her mother's flaws and eccentricities in order to make peace with her impending death. Wood also shines a necessary spotlight on the myriad bureaucracies within our health care system that make navigating illness challenging and often dehumanizing. A smartly written, thought-provoking read.” ―Heather Frimmer, MD, author of Bedside Manners “Elizabeth Wood puts a human face on our health care crisis. She offers a loving testimony to her mother―who lived life exuberantly as an elder dominatrix―and an indictment of the way our health care system treats those least able to advocate for themselves.”―Joan Price, author of Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex and the forthcoming Sex After Grief: Navigating Your Sexuality After Loss of Your Beloved“Bound is a deeply honest, unflinching portrait of a daughter’s relationship with her mother at the end of life. In this affecting memoir, the intimacies of an aging woman’s lifestyle of kink and bondage become fascinating metaphors for hospital life, medical care, and physical dependence during illness and dying. Bound is both a brilliant meditation on helplessness and power and a stirring testament to the strength of bonds between people who care for each other.”―Victoria Pitts-Taylor, PhD, author of The Brain's Body: Neuroscience and Corporeal Politics“Told with courage, honesty, humor, warmth, and insight, Bound offers readers a front-row seat to the negotiations between a daughter, her unconventional mother, and other family as they face the medical-emotional whiplash of terminal illness. Wood offers wisdom and perspective that is sure to help others as they straddle the painful space between what they want and the inevitability of loss. This book is filled with love and promises to be a wonderful companion for anyone faced with caregiving for a loved one.”―Virginia A. Simpson, PhD, FT, award-winning author of The Space Between: A Memoir of Mother-Daughter Love at the End of Life “Bound explores the complexities of caregiving in the context of a unique mother-daughter relationship. This personal story triggers universal emotions and offers insights that will help you understand your own caregiving journey.”―Iris Waichler, MSW, LCSW, author of Role Reversal: How to Take Care of Yourself and Your Aging Parents Read more About the Author Elizabeth Anne Wood is a SUNY Chancellors Award–winning professor of sociology at Nassau Community College in Garden City, NY. She is also Senior Strategist for Woodhull Freedom Foundation, the nation’s only human rights organization working full time to protect sexual freedom as a fundamental human right.

Pdf:Goodnight, Sweet: A Caregiver's Long Goodbye.Review 'What a wonderful, articulate account of the realities of being an Alzheimer's/dementia caregiver. The author beautifully expresses the difficult emotions and physical and spiritual challenges 'caring' for loved ones presents. As a previous professional caregiver with ten years of experience, I was touched not only by her relationship with her grandparents but also her relationship with the Lord and how this influenced the way she cared for her grandparents, showed grace to ruthless relatives, and grieved and found joy throughout the journey. I highly recommend this book for those anywhere on the path of caring for aged loved ones, as it honestly depicts the multifaceted experience of Alzheimer's/dementia caregiving.' --Julie Todd, MSSW, Former Professional Caregiver 'Goodnight, Sweet is a beautiful recounting of a young woman's struggle to provide care for her ailing grandparents. It is a message of hope in the midst of despair as Alzheimer's disease and dementia steal her beloved grandparents away, and it shows her struggle to come to terms with the heartbreaking circumstances she now finds herself in. Nevertheless, she relies on her faith in God to carry her through. It is a truly inspiring read and a great help for those who are going through the heartbreak of caring for loved ones who are slipping away.'--Julie Garner, Former Caregiver Read more About the Author Leah Stanley was born in Memphis, Tennessee.

I Love You Coloring Book

Pdf Parenting I Love You Coloring Book

Pdf:I Love You Coloring Book.Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection and to the simplest pleasure. An example of this range of meanings is that the love of a mother differs from the love of a spouse, which differs from the love of food. Most commonly, love refers to a feeling of strong attraction and emotional attachment. Love can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as "the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another". It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one's self or animals.Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts. Love has been postulated to be a function to keep human beings together against menaces and to facilitate the continuation of the species. Thus we prepared the greatest coloring adventure of all. Behold, this is the much awaited I love you coloring book.

Pdf Parenting Test of Faith: Surviving My Daughter’s Life Sentence

Pdf:Test of Faith: Surviving My Daughter’s Life Sentence.Bonnie S. Hirst is a woman of faith who has always believed that everything in life works out for the best. So, when her daughter, Lacey, is accused of a terrible crime, although Bonnie is devastated, she is also convinced that God will protect her family from harm. He always has, after all. But when her prayers are not answered and Lacey is sentenced to life in prison, Bonnie questions every aspect of her existence: her beliefs, her role as a mother, and the purpose behind the events that are tearing her family apart. As Bonnie and her family navigate the complicated labyrinth of the legal system, she struggles with the duality of presenting a façade of being okay on the outside and screaming for air on the inside. Finally, she is guided to ask for help—a concept previously foreign to her—and is rewarded with a bubble of friends who surround her and her family with love. Poignant, hopeful, and ultimately uplifting, Test of Faith is the story of one mother’s spiritual journey of awareness—and her discovery that even when your life seems to have radically veered off course, there are always blessings to be found, if you can just keep your heart open enough to receive them.

But what if those responsible for our growth prevent us from developing, keeping us dependent to fill their own feelings of emptiness and fulfill their selfish desires for power and control?

Imagine taking care of a child that could die at any moment. That has been Cewanda Todd’s reality since 2008. At 21 weeks pregnant her doctor told her that her baby’s heart had a missing right chamber, the chamber that pumps blood to its lungs. To address the condition Cewanda had three options, and each one could result in the death of her baby. Beautifully Scarred is her account of how this experience changed the course of her life, impacted her family, and deepened her faith. She believes this all happened in order to help another mother, father, or family know that even though you have been given the assignment of caregiver, you can do it. You will get through it.

Pdf Parenting Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler: Tackling These Crazy Awesome Years—No Time-outs Needed (Oh Crap Parenting Book 2)

Pdf:Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler: Tackling These Crazy Awesome Years—No Time-outs Needed (Oh Crap Parenting Book 2).Real-world, from-the-trenches toddler parenting advice from the author of the bestselling Oh Crap! Potty Training. Toddlers—commonly defined as children aged between two and five years old—can be a horribly misunderstood bunch. What most parents view as bad behavior is in fact just curious behavior. Toddlerdom is the age of individuation, seeking control, and above all, learning how the world works. But this misunderstanding between parents and child can lead to power struggles, tantrums, and even diminished growth and creativity. The recent push of early intellectualism coupled with a desire to “make childhood magical” has created a strange paradox—we have three-year-olds with math and Mandarin tutors who don’t know how to dress themselves and are sitting in their own poop. We are pushing the toddler mind beyond its limit but simultaneously keeping them far below their own natural capabilities. In the frank, funny, and totally authentic Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler, social worker Jamie Glowacki helps parents work through what she considers the five essential components of raising toddlers: —Engaging the toddler mind —Working with the toddler body —Understanding and dealing with the toddler behavior —Creating a good toddler environment —You, the parent Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler is about doing more with less—and bringing real childhood back from the brink of over-scheduled, over-stimulated, helicopter parenting. With her signature down-and-dirty, friend-to-friend advice, Jamie is here to help you experience the joy of parenting again and giving your child—and yourself—the freedom to let them grow at their own pace and become who they are.

Pdf:Smart Toddler Discipline: The Practical Guide to Positive Parenting, Eliminating Behavior Problems & Tantrums and Raising a Happy Child.What do you do with your little one if only yesterday he/she was an adorable child and now throws tantrums every time he/she is not treated like royalty? Do you threaten, bribe, shout, distract, or simply ignore them, hoping that at some point in time it will get better?Nowadays, parents are bombarded with so much "expert advice". Some of it is confusing, some contradictory, and some simply impossible to follow. No wonder so many parents feel frustrated and confused!The reality is, however - there is no single parenting rule that fits absolutely all children. While some children may be extremely motivated by simple praise words, others need more tangible rewards to be influenced. All toddlers are different!  That's why the smart parenting method I'm teaching is not just about the discipline tactics and how to implement them. It is a lot more about learning to understand your child's development, practicing the ability to read his or her emotions, and developing the discipline approach that is best suited for your child.That's when disciplining and parenting strategies start working. That is the foundation of my Smart Toddler Discipline approach.Inside this audiobook, I will explain:The things you need to know about child development and what defines the success of your disciplining effortWhy saying "No" simply doesn't workHow to understand the real reasons for your toddler's unrulinessHow to tailor the disciplining tactics to your childThe most important things to do before you start discipliningThe most appropriate and reliable toddler-disciplining strategiesTen toddler disciplining mistakes to avoid at all costWhy potty training is such a challenge and how to solve it effectivelyOne amazingly effective routine that will get you through those difficult toddler daysPractical exercises, cheat sheets, a rewards system, and so much more!

Pdf Parenting A Dark Secret: Part 3 of 3

Pdf:A Dark Secret: Part 3 of 3.Part 3 of 3Just when Casey thinks her foster care duties are done, she’s asked to look after Sam, a troubled nine-year-old with a violent streak who drove his previous guardians to release him of their care. It soon unfolds, however, that this is no simple case.Determined to get to the root of Sam’s behaviour, Casey is committed to uncover his mysterious past only to find out something far darker than she ever imagined…Having recently said goodbye to their last foster child, Miller, the Watson family are taking a bit of a break. But it’s while Casey is having fun catching up with her friends that she receives a call from her new link worker. Social services are desperately trying to find a settled home for nine-year-old Sam, who has Autism and some serious behavioural problems.Removed from his mother less than a week ago, Sam has been staying with respite carers. But with two young children of their own, they now find themselves unable to hold on to the little boy as he is bullying them relentlessly. It’s not an isolated situation, either. Apparently Sam’s own siblings begged not to be placed with their older brother – they were both adamant that they were too afraid of him.The Watsons agree to accommodate Sam, who, despite his tiny stature, turns out to be quite the whirlwind – destroying anything and everything in his path. In addition to the outward behaviours, it quickly becomes evident that there is a much darker past that has blighted the boy’s life. As Casey tries to get to the bottom of it, she discovers there are no files on Sam; only the testament of his previous neighbour. Thankfully, Mrs Gallagher is only too happy to help. And to talk. But it soon transpires that there is a great deal more to Sam’s secret history…

Emotional and Narcissistic Abuse: The Complete Survival Guide to Understanding Narcissism, Escaping the Narcissist in a Toxic Relationship Forever, ... (Journey of Learning to Love Yourself)

Pdf Parenting Emotional and Narcissistic Abuse: The Complete Survival Guide to Understanding Narcissism, Escaping the Narcissist in a Toxic Relationship Forever, ... (Journey of Learning to Love Yourself)

Pdf:Emotional and Narcissistic Abuse: The Complete Survival Guide to Understanding Narcissism, Escaping the Narcissist in a Toxic Relationship Forever, ... (Journey of Learning to Love Yourself).Do you feel like you’re no longer the person you used to be? Do you feel like all your beautiful traits have been stripped away? Are you struggling to distinguish what is real and what is not…? Chances are you’ve been strategically trauma bonded to a Narcissist for quite some time, living in a false reality.The casual tossing-around of the word “narcissist” has led many people to falsely believe that a narcissist is simply someone who has an inflated sense of confidence and perhaps a slightly inflated ego, too. Unfortunately, the dictionary reinforces this belief with its description of a narcissist, stating that they are “a person who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves.” This is more likely to be the definition of someone who is arrogant and not someone who is narcissistic. The reality of a narcissist is much darker than that. Narcissists do tend to think incredibly highly of themselves, but the reality of who they are and what they do is extremely intricate and well-played. Narcissism is an intricate, well-constructed series of traits wrapped up in one mental illness that is extremely damaging to all who cross the paths of a narcissist, especially their lovers. Some people are known to possess narcissistic-like qualities, but this is entirely different from what a true narcissist is. A true narcissist is a master at lying, phenomenal at deception, and incredibly talented at curating codependent victims. They are powerful. Because a narcissist is generally slow and consistent in their approach, they are masters at tearing down other people to the point that the other person develops an addiction to the narcissist. The narcissist is not just in love with getting attention; they are completely addicted to it. That is the basis for their entire mental illness. It is what drives them and what results in them masterfully playing out all of their puppeteering behaviors.If you are thinking about reading this book, it is likely because you are seeking support for leaving from an abusive, narcissistic relationship or desperately trying to find ways to heal. This book will educate you on complex topics, featuring:NarcissismNarcissistic Personality DisorderTraits of the NarcissistSigns and Symptoms of Narcissistic AbuseCreation of the NarcissistFalse-Self and True-SelfCharacteristics of a Narcissists Target (Victim)The Cycles of AbuseLong-term Damage to the VictimHow to Heal Your Sense of SelfStrategies to Safely Escape the Narcissist and Prevent RelapseNarcissists Manipulation Tactics TerminologyA Mini Handbook for VictimsAnd plenty moreThis book will provide you with great value and insight on everything you are going through and what you need to do next. If you are still in the relationship, this will support you in the process of beginning to demystify everything that has been going on and recognizing the reality of what you are experiencing. As you will learn, this is an essential part of breaking free from the relationship and healing.I hope that this book finds you well and safe and that everything within these pages supports you in understanding more about your relationship. I also hope it helps you to safely leave your relationship so that you can move on to the healing process and eventually resume a happy, healthy lifestyle.Scroll up and click ‘add to cart’ to start your road to recovery.Paperback purchases also include the eBook version.

Covert Narcissism: Signs of a Covert Narcissist, Ways to Protect Yourself From Their Manipulation and How to Deal With Their Narcissism

Pdf Parenting Covert Narcissism: Signs of a Covert Narcissist, Ways to Protect Yourself From Their Manipulation and How to Deal With Their Narcissism

Pdf:Covert Narcissism: Signs of a Covert Narcissist, Ways to Protect Yourself From Their Manipulation and How to Deal With Their Narcissism.Covert narcissism is a more hidden and concealed form of narcissism, making it all the more difficult for the abuser to be confronted or 'outed' for their behavior. Covert narcissism is a passive-aggressive, hostile and toxic form of abuse that makes victims feel hopeless, unheard, hurt and confused by the abusers behavior. When you think of a narcissistic personality, it's likely you think of a loud, grandiose and 'look at me' type of character. A lot of people don't realize that there is a much stealthier, more introverted form of narcissism, and therefore covert narcissists can often get away with their toxic behavior without being found out.I was in a relationship with a covert narcissist. I know the frustration, disappointment, anger and humiliation a covert narc can make you feel. I understand the helplessness you feel when you're in a relationship that has such an invisible toxicity that you think no one would believe you if you told them about it.This book, driven by my desire to help and connect with other victims of narcissistic abuse, aims to give you the knowledge you need to stand up to covert narcissistic abuse. The chapters include:- What is a Covert Narcissist? The Six Giveaway Signs of a Covert Narcissist - Can a Covert Narcissist Love?- Confusing Conversations With a Covert Narcissist- The Effects Covert Narcissism Has on You- Setting Boundaries and Interacting With a Covert Narcissist- Looking After You - Ways to Leave a Vulnerable Narcissist

Confused: A True Story of Flawed Love, Control and Abuse

Pdf Parenting Confused: A True Story of Flawed Love, Control and Abuse

Pdf:Confused: A True Story of Flawed Love, Control and Abuse.Rosie is a woman happy in her own skin: good job, great friends, enjoyable lifestyle filled with sports, dance, music. She's even managed to buy her own home before turning thirty, an uncommon feat for single women in the 1970's. In short, Rosie's a pretty good package. She meets Carl, whose charms, wit and dynamism appear the perfect wrapping, the crowning touch to the life that she's built so far. Within months of their wedding, Rosie realizes she's entangled with a frequently unemployed, dishonest, alcoholic, ultimately violent conman. By subtle and calculated design, Carl manages to rip Rosie's package apart: he cuts her off from friends and family, he curtails her usual lifestyle, he manages to lose her house, and he changes Rosie from a vivacious, confident woman to a sniveling, vacillating doormat. Rosie knows she must extricate herself from his control--something, Rosie finds out, is far easier said than done. This cautionary tale should especially appeal to the 20- or 30-something woman (although anyone involved in a toxic relationship can relate). In this memoir, told from forty years of retrospect, the author shares her own version of "Sleeping with the Enemy" with self-deprecation, exasperation, terror, and compassion.

Pdf:I'm Saying No!: Standing Up Against Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Pressure.Review 'Engel’s tone is chatty and empowering as she reminds victims that they can move past an assault, and encourages all women to become comfortable at expressing anger . . . The book does a good job of presenting strategies to develop self-awareness, recognize potential threats, and get out of problematic situations. A useful guide to combating sexual violence and raising women’s self-esteem.'―Kirkus Reviews“Beverly provides much-needed strategies, information, and support for every woman who has or is still being traumatized by any kind of sexual misconduct, whether it is in the workplace or elsewhere.

An empowering book that I highly recommend.”―Raychelle Cassada Lohmann, author of The Sexual Trauma Workbook for Teen Girls“In her latest book, Engel provides readers with useful guidance for saying no to would-be sexual abusers and encourages readers to practice what it feels like to use those two simple but imperfect letters―N-O!―a skill that benefits people of all ages.'―Holly Kearl, founder of Stop Street Harassment“It’s easy enough to tell women to 'say no' but, in reality, there is nothing easy about saying no if you are a woman.

Fridays with my Folks: Stories on ageing, illness and life

Pdf Parenting Fridays with my Folks: Stories on ageing, illness and life

Pdf:Fridays with my Folks: Stories on ageing, illness and life.Amal Awad's life changed when her father was diagnosed with kidney failure. It was a shock to see the impact it had on him, both physically and mentally, and the way the side effects trickled onto those around him. Work had always made him feel whole and retirement was a challenge. On a mission to help her father and support her mother, Amal began spending every Friday with her parents. She saw the gaps in discussion around ageing and sickness. Amal's personal experiences prompted her to explore how Australians are ageing, how sickness affects the afflicted and those around them, and what solutions exist when hope seems lost.So many people are similarly navigating a new reality - weeks dotted with doctor appointments; conversations that deplete and reveal at the same time; reshaped family relationships. Amal speaks with doctors, nurses, an aged care psychologist, specialists, politicians, ageing people living alone and others in a retirement village, to gain insights and to consider solutions.At a time when ageism and health is high on the public's radar, what we're not always talking about is how to deal with the anxiety, depression and overall challenges that come with someone you love facing their mortality and a decline in health. Fridays with My Folks shares heartfelt, honest stories that will help others who are in similar positions. People who are having to reorient themselves when the boat has taken a battering and they have to take a new direction.This book stems from personal experiences, but it expands to a much wider, more universal discussion about life, suffering, coping and hope.

Do you?This book’s Catechism of Testosterone-Poverty symptoms includes depression, loss of memory, numeracy and spatial skills including driving, erectile dysfunction, erratic mood changes or grumpiness – even osteoporosis.

Ladysitting: My Year with Nana at the End of Her Century

Pdf Parenting Ladysitting: My Year with Nana at the End of Her Century

Pdf:Ladysitting: My Year with Nana at the End of Her Century.Lorene Cary’s grandmother moves in, and everything changes: day-to-day life, family relationships, the Nana she knew—even their shared past.From cherished memories of weekends she spent as a child with her indulgent Nana to the reality of the year she spent “ladysitting” her now frail grandmother, Lorene Cary journeys through stories of their time together and five generations of their African American family. Brilliantly weaving a narrative of her complicated yet transformative relationship with Nana—a fierce, stubborn, and independent woman, who managed a business until she was 100—Cary looks at Nana’s impulse to control people and fate, from the early death of her mother and oppression in the Jim Crow South to living on her own in her New Jersey home.Cary knew there might be some reckonings to come. Nana was a force: Her obstinacy could come out in unanticipated ways—secretly getting a driver’s license to show up her husband, carrying on a longtime feud with Cary’s father. But Nana could also be devoted: to Nana’s father, to black causes, and—Cary had thought—to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Facing the inevitable end raises tensions, with Cary drawing on her spirituality and Nana consoling herself with late-night sweets and the loyalty of caregivers. When Nana doubts Cary’s dedication, Cary must go deeper into understanding this complicated woman.In Ladysitting, Cary captures the ruptures, love, and, perhaps, forgiveness that can occur in a family as she bears witness to her grandmother’s 101 vibrant years of life.

Things My Son Needs to Know about the World

Pdf Parenting Things My Son Needs to Know about the World

Pdf:Things My Son Needs to Know about the World.Fredrik Backman, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove, shares his irresistible and moving collection of heartfelt and humorous essays about fatherhood, providing his newborn son with the perspective and tools he’ll need to make his way in the world. Things My Son Needs to Know About the World are the personal dispatches from a man on the front lines of one of the most daunting experiences a man can experience: fatherhood. Capturing his profound awe of experiencing all the firsts that fill him with wonder, Fredrik Backman explores the expectations parents feel to always do the right thing. As any new parent can relate, the intense pressure to not fail may cause you to bundle your child so they’ll be ready for a day on the tundra—only to forget to put on his shoes. In between the sleep-deprived nights and wonderful highs, Backman takes a step back to share the true story of falling in love with a woman who is his complete opposite, and learning to live a life that revolves around the people you care about unconditionally. Alternating between funny side notes and longer essays offering his son advice as he grows up and ventures out into the world, Backman relays the big and small lessons in life, including: -How to find the team you belong to -Why airports explain everything about religion and war -The reason starting a band is crucial to cultivating and keeping friendships -How to beat Monkey Island 3 -Why, sometimes, a dad might hold onto his son’s hand just a little too tight Ultimately, this is a beautifully wrought and insightful collection, perfect for new parents and fans of Backman’s “unparalleled understanding of human nature” (Shelf Awareness). As he eloquently reminds us, “You can be whatever you want to be, but that’s nowhere near as important as knowing that you can be exactly who you are.”

Pdf Parenting A Father Takes All: Four Generations of Growing up in Single Mother Homes – Grace Abounds

Pdf:A Father Takes All: Four Generations of Growing up in Single Mother Homes – Grace Abounds.A spiritual journey in search of understanding and a mission to discover family roots set the stage for God’s most significant work in the life of one woman. Success can often be measured by a person’s life chances. And nothing interferes more with life chances than a divorce. When fathers withdraw from their children, they leave them with fewer opportunities to succeed. They also leave wounds deep and wide that can take years to heal. The struggle for survival and achievement is profound.Growing up fatherless is disconcerting as children learn to navigate their world in a society quick to slap a label on them. From infancy, a child's identity is framed by his family life, a self-fulfilling prophecy is set in motion. The factors involved are many and varied. The statistics show a high percentage of children growing up in single-parent homes, also grow up in poverty. The author shares personal stories of the struggles encountered through four generations of women raised without the love, the influence and the support of a father. Discovering four generations of single parenting in her lineage was astonishing. Nonetheless, it was a reality for this author. It's a curse that she prays will end with the current generation.Growing up fatherless is deeply concerning as children learn to navigate their world in a society quick to slap a label on them.

Schecter has written hundreds of articles on parenting and family topics for publications including Today’s Parent, Men’s Health, and MUM Magazine. His work has also appeared in the National Post and the Globe and Mail. I.J. lives in Toronto. Read more Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. In the first year after my split, I encountered two individuals whom I now think of as my guardian angels. Both were police officers. I met them eight months apart. The first meeting occurred about three months after my ex and I told our three kids we were breaking up, which was, needless to say, the worst moment of my life. At that point I was, to put it mildly, a complete mess. I’d been attempting to manage the few parts of my life I felt I could control: the quality of my work, the state of my body, the way I treated others. But those were the things on the outside. The part inside, my heart, well, I had only so much control over that, and the pain it was trying to contain was overwhelming. I had just spent the evening with Dustin, Cory, and Alisha, then dropped them back “home” with their mom and drove away. It hurts to even write “drove away.” Those words make me want to cry, as do any words that describe the action of physically leaving my kids. Typically, after parting ways, I would drive a few blocks, pull over, and cry. Those tears expressed a lot of complicated emotions, but mostly just unmitigated pain. Often I would think about when my kids were born: the pure love and instinctive connection I’d felt. What I was experiencing after the breakup felt in many ways opposite — the emptiness of saying goodbye to them, the feeling of detachment instead of connection. The first time I had to leave them after the split, I felt like the pain might kill me. At some point after stopping the car, I would pull myself together and drive back “home” (my parents’ apartment). Then I would try to do something productive: exercise, write, correspond with people important to me, read, spend time talking to my mom and dad. On this particular evening, after the cry had exhausted itself and I started driving home, almost immediately I saw flashing lights in my rear-view mirror. I pulled over impassively. The cop, an older guy who looked like he’d been on the force for a long time — thinning hairline, gray at the temples, bit of a paunch — walked toward me and I lowered the window, getting ready to hand over my licence and registration. He was in cop mode, serious and authoritative, flipping open his pad and clicking his pen. When he looked up and saw my face, he paused for a long moment. I was holding out my documents, but he didn’t take them. He seemed frozen, as though he wasn’t looking at a person, but a ghost. After what felt like a long time, he spoke. “Sir,” he said, in a quiet voice, “I don’t know what’s happening in your life right now, but I need you to do something. I need you to promise me you’re going to drive home, and then I need you to promise me you aren’t going to get behind the wheel again when you feel like this. This is a school zone, sir, and you were going fast enough to do something really dangerous. Do you understand what I’m saying to you?” He was speaking very slowly and carefully. “Sir?” “Um, yes,” I said. “Sorry. Yes. Thank you.” “Do you want to wait a while, or do you feel you’re okay to drive home?” “I’m okay,” I said. “All right,” he said. “Straight home, then.” I saw my hand go out and grasp his. I heard myself say something about his being a good cop, or maybe a good man. While he walked back to his cruiser, I tilted down the mirror to look at myself. What I saw reminded me of a day soon after Dustin was born, when I’d gone into work feeling exhausted, but thinking I could fool people for one day. Ten minutes in, someone had walked by, done a double take, and said to me, “Wow, you look so tired.” We can fool people sometimes, but not when the fatigue, or the pain, is blindingly obvious to them (even if it may not be to us). Now, looking at myself in the rear-view, I was stunned at how I looked. Maybe the best way to say it is I was there, but barely looked like I was. I am forever grateful to that cop not only for his humanity, but also for alerting me to the fact that I was in a far worse state than I’d recognized. Eight months later, after having again said good night to my kids, again detesting the moment of walking away, again feeling despair at not seeing them in their pyjamas in the morning, I was driving down the same street as before. Again I saw flashing lights and heard a siren. This time I felt the same righteous indignation most of us feel in such a moment (right before you start to admit you might have actually done something wrong). This time as the cop approached my door, I didn’t reach for my licence and registration, because I remembered what had happened before and assumed it would happen again. I even worked to achieve the same kind of look of desolation I’d had the previous time, just to make sure I would get out of this ticket too. The officer, younger and more trim than the one who had pulled me over months before, looked at me and asked for my documents. Nothing in his demeanour changed; he started cop and stayed cop. I told him I was going through a split and having a rough day. He said, “I understand. Licence and registration, please.” I hadn’t been going very fast this time — just fast enough to merit a ticket. But if there was ever a positive ticket to get, this was it. Because what this cop saw was a man who was present, aware, and, all other things being equal, normal. What the other cop had seen was a man hardly there, obliviously driving a two-ton weapon through a school zone. Some eleven months after my breakup, I was still in tremendous pain. I was still burdened by a sorrow I’d never known, still just trying to, as Tom Hanks’s widower character Sam Baldwin puts it in the movie Sleepless in Seattle, “get out of bed every morning, breathe in and out all day long.” But that ticket, although aggravating in the way any ticket is, was also the first sign that things might get better. In the months before, during, and after my split, I’d spoken to dozens of friends and others who had gone through divorce, either as the parents doing the splitting or as the children of those parents. They’d all had useful and compassionate things to say. But the advice of one person stood out, and it was those words I thought about as I drove away, ticket in hand. He’d said, “Look, I.J., there’s no way to make it go faster or make it hurt less. But eventually, it changes. It’s bad, it’s bad, it’s bad, and then one day, it’s good.” What I was feeling by then, nearly a year in, couldn’t have been remotely described as “good,” but the fact that the second cop recognized me as a person conscious enough to deserve the ticket signalled that I was starting to come back into myself, even if only a tiny bit. I still found it a monumental effort to remain functional and positive from one day to the next, but at least I was starting to reawaken. Those two men were my guardian angels because they represented two essential parts of my journey: the pain that cannot be bypassed or rushed, and the first small moments that indicate things might be okay, if not today, then maybe tomorrow. The first angel let me know that I was in a really dark place and not entirely aware of my actions. The second let me know that I was starting to become whole again. Before, between, and since these two encounters, my kids have gone through a bracing series of ups and downs, each in their own way and according to their personality. During their collective and individual passages, certain moments have made me want to cry, scream, or both. There was the time, just weeks after the split, when I tried to do something normal: take them tobogganing. Rather than being a fun event, this ended up instead with everyone’s tension spilling over, me yelling insanely at the winter sky, and the kids looking on horrified as though I was going crazy, which I pretty much was. There was the moment when I walked into Dustin’s room one evening to find all of the poems and stories I had written for him over ten years torn apart and littering his floor. There was the bedtime cuddle with Alisha when I thought she had fallen asleep on my chest but then heard her sniffling. She asked, “Are you and Mommy ever getting back together?” and I had to say, “No, honey, we’re not.” But the worst moment happened one evening when Cory, wise beyond his years, said to me, “Do you ever cry, Dad?” The question left me dumbstruck, because just about all I’d done for months was cry, at least when alone. I’d come to be surprised on any morning when my eyes looked mostly normal instead of red and puffy. But when Cory asked this question, I realized he hadn’t seen me cry, not even once, perhaps, in all the time since his mom and I had split. No, there was one time, I realized. I’d been with the kids in the car, listening to music. In my car we listen to music all the time, because, well, I love music, and so do the kids. We have a wide range of artists on rotation constantly, representing all eras and genres, from Bruce Springsteen to ABBA, Count Basie to KISS. On this day, Billy Joel was on: “Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel),” which he wrote for his daughter, Alexa. It’s a gorgeous heart-ripper of a song. You might find, as I did during my breakup, that your cry impulse is right near the surface all the time. Sometimes you can keep it at bay, while at other times you’re helpless to do so. The song came on, I glimpsed Alisha in the back seat doing nothing but looking innocent and perfect, and I broke. Cory was in the back as well, Dustin up front with me. I tried to look out the window as my tears started to surge, but there was no way to stop them. (Damn you, Billy. Not really, though. Love you, Billy.) I felt bad for my kids because I didn’t want them to have to deal with the weirdness of their big old dad weeping like a baby. Trying to hide my emotions from them was the wrong decision — then, now, and at any time. When Cory asked me whether I ever cried, I understood that I must have at some point decided that, since my ex was crying a lot, it was up to me to be the strong one. I’d clenched my jaw and hidden my sadness and decided I would be their rock in the storm. But Cory obviously wasn’t seeing me as strong; he was seeing me as unfeeling. Not only had I destroyed the world he’d known, but, far worse, I had been acting, in his eyes, indifferent toward having done so. Read more

All the Sweeter: Families Share Their Stories of Adopting from Foster Care

Pdf Parenting All the Sweeter: Families Share Their Stories of Adopting from Foster Care

Pdf:All the Sweeter: Families Share Their Stories of Adopting from Foster Care.About the Author Jean Minton witnessed many children who lost their parents to AIDS in the early 2000s as a Peace Corps health volunteer in Malawi. This experience opened her eyes to the possibility of adopting. In San Francisco a decade later, she volunteered on the board of directors for Adopt A Special Kid (AASK), a foster-to-adopt agency. AASK’s mission captured her heart and cemented her desire to create her own forever family with the help of the foster-to-adopt process. As she considered starting a family, she sought resources to help understand the foster-to-adopt process. She didn’t find quite what she wanted―so decided to write it herself. Minton earned a Bachelor of Science at Duke University and her MBA at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. She lives in Sacramento, California, works in healthcare administration, and is a Board Member for Lilliput Children’s Services (a similar organization to AASK). She spends much of her time outdoors and with family and friends. Read more

Upside Down: Understanding and Supporting Attachment in Adoptive and Foster Families

Pdf Parenting Upside Down: Understanding and Supporting Attachment in Adoptive and Foster Families

Pdf:Upside Down: Understanding and Supporting Attachment in Adoptive and Foster Families.Adoptive and foster families working through attachment issues often feel alone. But it doesn’t have to be that way – communities around them can intentionally be part of the solution instead of unintentionally being part of the problem. Without that support, adoptive and foster families live in isolation.Shannon Guerra learned this first-hand after she and her husband adopted two children in 2012, and she started writing shockingly transparent blog posts about what her family was going through at home, at the doctor’s office, and in her heart as a mama. And then adoptive and foster families started writing back. Their overwhelming, unanimous theme was, “This is what I’ve wanted to tell people for so long. I wish everyone who knows our family could read this.” This book is the result. It is now used in churches, offices, ministries, and communities as the must-have, easy-read resource for training and explaining attachment issues to those who need to know as soon as possible how to support adoptive and foster families.In about 100 pages, Upside Down provides information and insight that transforms an outsider’s assumptions into an insider’s powerful perspective. Because adoptive and foster families should never feel alone, and our communities can be equipped to make sure they never feel that way again.

The Bold World: A Memoir of Family and Transformation

Pdf Parenting The Bold World: A Memoir of Family and Transformation

Pdf:The Bold World: A Memoir of Family and Transformation.Inspired by her transgender son, activist Jodie Patterson explores identity, gender, race, and authenticity to tell the real-life story of a family's history and transformation. One of the Best Books of the Week - USA Today and New York Post "A courageous and poetic testimony on family and the self, and the learning and unlearning we must do for those we love." (Janet Mock)As an African American growing up on Manhattan's Upper West Side in the 1970s, when neighborhoods defined people, Jodie Patterson learned early on to engage with her community for strength and comfort. But then in 2009, this mother of five had her world turned upside down. Realizing her definition of community wasn't wide enough for her own child's needs, Patterson forced the world wide open.In The Bold World, we witness a mother reshaping her attitudes and beliefs, as well as those of her community, to meet the needs of her transgender son, Penelope - and opening the minds of everyone in her family who absolutely, unequivocally refused to conform.As we walk alongside Patterson on her journey, we meet the Southern women who came before her - the mother, grandmothers, and aunts who raised and fortified her, all the while challenging cultural norms and gender expectations. She shares her family's history - particularly incidents within the black community around sexism, racism, and civil rights. We learn about her children, who act as a vehicle for Jodie Patterson's own growth and acceptance of her diverse family, and her experiences as a wife, mother, and eventually, activist. The result is an intimate portrait and an exquisite study in identity, courage, and love. Patterson's relentless drive to change the world will resonate with and inspire us all, reflecting our own individual strength and tenacity, our very real fears, and most of all, our singular ability to transform despite the odds.Praise for The Bold World"In The Bold World, Jodie Patterson makes a case for respecting everyone's gender identity by way of showing how she came to accept her son, Penelope. In tying that struggle to the struggle for race rights in this country during her own childhood, she paints a vivid picture of the permanent work of social justice." (Andrew Solomon, best-selling author of The Noonday Demon and Far from the Tree)

Travel Light, Move Fast

Pdf Parenting Travel Light, Move Fast

Pdf:Travel Light, Move Fast.From bestselling author Alexandra Fuller, the utterly original story of her father, Tim Fuller, and a deeply felt tribute to a life well livedSix months before he died in Budapest, Tim Fuller turned to his daughter: “Let me tell you the secret to life right now, in case I suddenly give up the ghost. Then he lit his pipe and stroked his dog Harry’s head. Harry put his paw on Dad’s lap and they sat there, the two of them, one man and his dog, keepers to the secret of life. “Well?” she said. “Nothing comes to mind, quite honestly, Bobo,” he said, with some surprise. “Now that I think about it, maybe there isn’t a secret to life. It’s just what it is, right under your nose. What do you think, Harry?” Harry gave Dad a look of utter agreement. He was a very superior dog. “Well, there you have it,” Dad said.  After her father’s sudden death, Alexandra Fuller realizes that if she is going to weather his loss, she will need to become the parts of him she misses most. So begins Travel Light, Move Fast, the unforgettable story of Tim Fuller, a self-exiled black sheep who moved to Africa to fight in the Rhodesian Bush War before settling as a banana farmer in Zambia. A man who preferred chaos to predictability, to revel in promise rather than wallow in regret, and who was more afraid of becoming bored than of getting lost, he taught his daughters to live as if everything needed to happen all together, all at once—or not at all. Now, in the wake of his death, Fuller internalizes his lessons with clear eyes and celebrates a man who swallowed life whole. A master of time and memory, Fuller moves seamlessly between the days and months following her father’s death, as she and her mother return to his farm with his ashes and contend with his overwhelming absence, and her childhood spent running after him in southern and central Africa. Writing with reverent irreverence of the rollicking grand misadventures of her mother and father, bursting with pandemonium and tragedy, Fuller takes their insatiable appetite for life to heart. Here, in Fuller’s Africa, is a story of joy, resilience, and vitality, from one of our finest writers.

Once More We Saw Stars: A Memoir

Pdf Parenting Once More We Saw Stars: A Memoir

Pdf:Once More We Saw Stars: A Memoir.“A gripping and beautiful book about the power of love in the face of unimaginable loss.” --Cheryl StrayedFor readers of The Bright Hour and When Breath Becomes Air, a moving, transcendent memoir of loss and a stunning exploration of marriage in the wake of unimaginable grief.As the book opens: two-year-old Greta Greene is sitting with her grandmother on a park bench on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A brick crumbles from a windowsill overhead, striking her unconscious, and she is immediately rushed to the hospital. But although it begins with this event and with the anguish Jayson and his wife, Stacy, confront in the wake of their daughter's trauma and the hours leading up to her death, Once More We Saw Stars quickly becomes a narrative that is as much about hope and healing as it is about grief and loss. Jayson recognizes, even in the midst of his ordeal, that there will be a life for him beyond it--that if only he can continue moving forward, from one moment to the next, he will survive what seems unsurvivable. With raw honesty, deep emotion, and exquisite tenderness, he captures both the fragility of life and absoluteness of death, and most important of all, the unconquerable power of love.

Gelukkig zonder kinderen (Dutch Edition)

Pdf Parenting Gelukkig zonder kinderen (Dutch Edition)

Pdf:Gelukkig zonder kinderen (Dutch Edition).'Kinderloos is nooit gedachteloos. Dat maakt Lisette Schuitemaker met veel gevoel duidelijk.' – Charles den Tex, drievoudig winnaar van de Gouden Strop'Op fijnzinnige wijze en met sierlijke pen schetst Lisette Schuitemaker achtergronden en consequenties van de rap groeiende kinderloosheid en "kindervrijheid" in het rijke Westen.' – Annegreet van Bergen, auteur van Gouden jaren en Het goede levenGebaseerd op een wereldwijd onderzoek en meer dan 70 interviews met kinderloze en kindervrije vrouwen en mannen van 29 tot 92 jaar met diverse achtergronden.Kun je gelukkig zijn zonder kinderen? Of ben je dat dan juist? En hoe kom je tot die keus, wel of geen kinderen? Over de hele wereld groeit het aantal mensen zonder eigen kinderen. Hun redenen hiervoor verschillen vaak net zoveel als hun levens, maar velen blijken opvallend blij met hun bestaan. Soms worden ze raar aangekeken en moeten ze op verjaardagen uitleg geven. Of het onderwerp is juist een taboe waar niemand naar durft te vragen. Lisette Schuitemaker, zelf gelukkig zonder kinderen, vroeg vrouwen en mannen die geen ouders werden naar hun verhaal. Zonder een pleidooi te houden voor het een of het ander laat ze zien hoe kinderloos zijn doorwerkt in elk seizoen van het leven. Dit boek is voor iedereen die door omstandigheden of uit eigen keus niet de weg van ouderschap volgt – en voor wie nog zit te dubben over deze bepalende beslissing.Lisette Schuitemaker (1954) studeerde Oude Talen aan de Universiteit Leiden en haalde later een BSc in Brennan Healing Science in de Verenigde Staten. Ze runde en verkocht haar eigen communicatiebureau en was voorzitter van een aantal internationale organisaties op het gebied van duurzaamheid en bewustwording. Lisette is een veelgevraagd dagvoorzitter en spreker voor onderwijsinstellingen, organisaties en events. Ze woont in Amsterdam met haar partner, schilder Jos van Merendonk en is een betrokken tante.'Wat is dit een eerlijk boek over mensen die geen kinderen hebben. Aanbevolen lectuur – ook voor diegenen die ze wel hebben!' – Caroline de Gruyter, correspondent en columnist NRC Handelsblad'Gelukkig zonder kinderen geeft een frisse, zonnige blik op een onderwerp dat vaak nog in het duistere hoekje van de taboesfeer zit.' – Adele Napier, adviseur en coach'Wat mij als lezer vooral is bijgebleven, is de enorme vanzelfsprekendheid waarmee we als maatschappij het ouderschap tegemoet treden. Het zou ons sieren als we een meer open houding zouden hebben ten opzichte van mensen die, om wat voor reden dan ook, géén ouder zijn. Dit boek is een pionier op dat vlak.' – Maaike Helmer, auteur van NIETS en oprichter STRESSED OUT'Lisette voert een ongewoon mooi gesprek met haar lezers waarin ze op een lichthartige manier de grote vragen van het leven durft te stellen. Een boek vol wijsheid en antwoorden voor de broederschap der kinderlozen.' – Maarten van Huijstee, Managing Director Wisdom in Business'Wat goed dat dit boek eindelijk is geschreven.' – Anneloes Timmerije, auteur van Indisch zwijgen en Slaapwandelen bij daglicht

Pdf Parenting Middle School Matters: The 10 Key Skills Kids Need to Thrive in Middle School and Beyond--and How Parents Can Help

Pdf:Middle School Matters: The 10 Key Skills Kids Need to Thrive in Middle School and Beyond--and How Parents Can Help. A counselor and popular Washington Post contributor offers a new take on grades 6-8 as a distinct developmental phase--and the perfect time to set up kids to thrive.Middle school is its own important, distinct territory, and yet it's either written off as an uncomfortable rite of passage or lumped in with other developmental phases. Based on her many years working in schools, professional counselor Phyllis Fagell sees these years instead as a critical stage that parents can't afford to ignore (and though "middle school" includes different grades in various regions, Fagell maintains that the ages make more of a difference than the setting). Though the transition from childhood to adolescence can be tough for kids, this time of rapid physical, intellectual, moral, social, and emotional change is a unique opportunity to proactively build character and confidence. Fagell helps parents use the middle school years as a low-stakes training ground to teach kids the key skills they'll need to thrive now and in the future, including making good friend choices, negotiating conflict, regulating their own emotions, be their own advocates, and more. To answer parents' most common questions and struggles with middle school-aged children, Fagell combines her professional and personal expertise with stories and advice from prominent psychologists, doctors, parents, educators, school professionals, and middle schoolers themselves.

Closing Pandora's Box: Empowering Parents to Help Their Children Reject Pornography

Pdf Parenting Closing Pandora's Box: Empowering Parents to Help Their Children Reject Pornography

Pdf:Closing Pandora's Box: Empowering Parents to Help Their Children Reject Pornography.Closing Pandora's Box is an updated repackaging version of Pandora's Box is Open, Now What Do I Do. Remember the story of Pandora's enticing box, what it contained and how she innocently unleashed all manner of evil, sorrow and pain when she opened it? In the hands of children, our modern-day boxes of cells phones, tablets, computers and televisions are very similar to Pandora's. However, unlike Pandora, we know what's in our internet-enabled devices. We know that in addition to useful information, our kids’ boxes hold the disturbing and potentially life-altering material we call pornography. So what do parents do when their children come face to face with porn and get trapped by its riptide of darkness? Closing Pandora's Box instills hope and inspires courage to fight one of the many demons escaping today’s boxes. Authored by psychologist, Dr. Gail Poyner, who treats adults, children and teens who use pornography, Closing Pandora's Box is a book designed for parents who want to help their children and teens avoid and develop the skills to stop using this devastatingly addictive material. The book introduces the five-step CLOSE plan, which assists parents in learning about pornography addiction so they can teach their children skill-based behaviors to close their own Pandora's Box.

Are Your Kids Naked Online: How to protect your tech-savvy kids from online self-destruction

Pdf Parenting Are Your Kids Naked Online: How to protect your tech-savvy kids from online self-destruction

Pdf:Are Your Kids Naked Online: How to protect your tech-savvy kids from online self-destruction.This book is about much more than naked photos of your children showing up online. Will your kids’ social media accounts keep them out of that prestigious college? Will those naked photos on their cell phone that they didn’t request land them in jail or get them charged with a felony? Are your tweens and teens buying fake IDs on the dark web to get into dance clubs and buy alcohol? Will your child be charged with manslaughter for bullying? If the person they bullied commits suicide, the answer is YES! Are your kids buying drugs like Molly or tainted marijuana for parties on the Dark Web? Are things YOU post on social media about your children putting them in danger or affecting their future?Are Your Kids Naked Online breaks down the facts from fiction and is supported by academic research focused on technology, not only showing the real issues in an objective balanced way without down playing the real dangers and consequences, but also without fear mongering.The Goods end most of the chapters with a “What You Can Do” section that has tips and guidance for parents. Many of the chapters also contain a real life story of how the technology today is really impacting children and their families, and how it doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, whether you live in a big city or a small town, what race or religion you are, the consequences that technology can have are indiscriminate. Chris Good’s and Lisa Good’s expertise as 20 year veterans in the Cyber Security and Information Technology Industry as well as parents of 4 (just four) teenagers gives them a unique and important perspective.  As trained Cyber Security and IT Professionals, they understand first-hand the ins and outs of technology, as well as the underbelly of the dark web. As parents of four digital teens, they know what actually works, what your super smart tech-savvy kids can easily bypass and can relate to the reality of being a parent in the always-on digital world.  The Goods have spoken at Harvard, NASDAQ, and Coca-Cola, as well as appeared on CBS and NBC TV shows about the importance of protecting your children online.Chapters (with real life stories, research, helpful conversation starters, as well as tips and suggestions on what you can do from a technology perspective) include:Times Have ChangedThe Lingo of Today’s Digital Kids – An Online and Social Media Primer for the Rest of UsPandora’s Box – School Issued DevicesSmartphones – Are They Necessary and at What AgeSmartphone Apps - Doorway to Danger and Hidden SecretsSexting – The Real ConsequencesSharenting – Are YOU Endangering Your Children?A Social Reputation – It Will NEVER Go AwayWon’t You Be My Friend? Predators and Social MediaThe Dark Side of Gaming – Addiction, Porn and BullyingWho’s Afraid of the Big Bad Cyber Bully?The Dark Web – What It Is – What It’s NotTech Giants – Do As I Say, Not As I DoTrust but Verify Is the KeyMost children today know more than their parents do when it comes to technology, which convinces many parents to take the parental path of least resistance. They throw their hands up in the air and state as fact, “What’s the use, they know more about technology than I do. They already have access, so it’s too late. I can’t do anything about what they do online. Hopefully, it will be okay.” This is not true. It’s not hopeless. There are options, and you need a plan.Knowing what the options are, what would work best for your family, and developing a strategy is perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of parenting in today’s digital world.  Are Your Kids Naked Online provides guidance from technology experts on how to build a plan to protect your kids from online self-destruction.

Pdf Parenting Clovers

Pdf:Clovers.A tale of two mothers. Shain loves her mother as if she’s a fairy tale princess. Her dream is to grow up looking just like the woman she idolizes, down to the pink lipstick she wears. Soanie, a mother to four girls, is dealing with her own secrets and demons, holding this one child emotionally captive to her silence while treating the other girls normal. No matter the cost, Shain is bound and determined to break through the silence that’s holding her mother captive. No matter the hurt, love and respect prompt Shain to resort to collecting four-leaf clovers in hopes of winning her mother’s love. Down the road, Shain encounters a chapter of her life where she is forced to relive deep-rooted fears and failures after the birth of her third child. She begins a backward journey going over every little detail of miscues and mishaps surrounding her childhood. It’s not something she wants to relive regardless of the fond memories scattered about. The fate of a child that falls short in the eyes of society lies in the hands of its own mother. Reliving her past is as painful as getting a diagnosis that her baby has Down syndrome.

Saturday's Child: A Daughter's Memoir

Pdf Parenting Saturday's Child: A Daughter's Memoir

Pdf:Saturday's Child: A Daughter's Memoir.“Devilishly sharp… a masterful balance of psychological excavation and sumptuous description.”—Kirkus ReviewsAn only child, Deborah Burns grew up in prim 1950s America in the shadow of her beautiful, unconventional, rule-breaking mother, Dorothy—a red-haired beauty who looked like Rita Hayworth and skirted norms with a style and flare that made her the darling of men and women alike. Married to the son of a renowned Italian family with ties to the underworld, Dorothy fervently eschewed motherhood and domesticity, turning Deborah over to her spinster aunts to raise while she was the star of a vibrant social life. As a child, Deborah revered her charismatic mother, but Dorothy was a woman full of secrets with a troubled past—a mistress of illusion whose love seemed just out of her daughter’s grasp. In vivid, lyrical prose, Saturday’s Child tells the story of Deborah’s eccentric upbringing and her quest in midlife, long after her parents’ death, to uncover the truth about her mother and their complex relationship. No longer under the spell of her maternal goddess, but still caught in a wrenching cycle of love and longing, Deborah must finally confront the reality of her mother’s legacy—and finally claim her own.

Pdf Parenting I WALKED THROUGH GLASS: NARCISSISTIC RELATIONSHIP

Pdf:I WALKED THROUGH GLASS: NARCISSISTIC RELATIONSHIP.I started writing this book in 2017. It Started during and after Counseling and through my divorce. As it was only supposed to be a 5-month process and ended up being almost a year.I wrote this book for 41 years 6 months of marriage. To the person I became and for the sacrifices I made. Slowly dying inside. To the person, I was and wanted to become, to a mess of a marriage that was born of what a husband need and wanted for himself and I must give up. To words with no actions, manipulation, and lies sneaking, hiding and selfishness. To be a survivor of an alcoholic narcissist.This book was born of a letter to my then-husband, for myself to see the past for what it was, to relive and let go, and come to terms that my wants and needs could no longer be sacrificed for the sake of a doomed marriage. Marriage, something that I held in high regards as being a child of divorce myself, and vowing I would never do that to my children. Sticking it out even though I was dying inside. Being on depression medication and having a stint in a psych ward. Now realizing that not everything is worth saving. like a cold shower or a slap in the face and if you can do nothing but sacrifice everything you wanted and everything you are for someone who cannot love you, support you, or compromise and sacrifice themselves - then it's time to go.

Signs Of Emotional Abuse: Finding the Line Between Acceptable Human Behavior and Abuse

Pdf Parenting Signs Of Emotional Abuse: Finding the Line Between Acceptable Human Behavior and Abuse

Pdf:Signs Of Emotional Abuse: Finding the Line Between Acceptable Human Behavior and Abuse.*Get the paperback of this book and receive the Kindle ebook for free*What is the line between emotional abuse and normal human behavior? And who gets the right to draw that line?Are you feeling depressed and anxious because your mental health simply isn't doing well right now? Or is it a direct response to the emotional trauma that is being caused by an unhealthy relationship?These are all difficult questions to answer, and I understand how hard it can be to diagnose emotional abuse from the inside of a relationship. After having experienced an emotionally difficult relationship myself, I only came to truly realize how damaging it was after I had left the relationship. Why couldn't I see abuse while I was in the relationship?Ever since then, I have seen many friends get very comfortable in relationships that last for years but that I would consider abusive. Why is it that so many people find their way into relationships like this? The answer is because it's nearly impossible to see abuse from the inside. I made it a mission of mine to find out exactly how to diagnose an abusive relationship from inside a relationship, so that anyone going through abuse or trauma can find a way out. Understanding Why It’s Difficult to Pin Point Emotional AbuseAbusive behavior can be hard to define or prove and many people think that abuse is an “opinion”. I know a couple where the man is emotionally abused by the woman. I have often heard his friends say things like “well if she makes him happy then it’s ok”, or “if he’s ok with it then I guess it’s alright.”If you were saying these things about your own relationship you might say “yeah, but I don’t mind it when he does that” or “but I know she doesn’t mean it that way”. You are saying these things as if abuse is an opinion-based thing when it really isn’t. There is a line that changes things and moves behavior over into the abuse category and you do not get to determine where that line is. Abuse is not an opinion. This book will show you when behavior turns into abuseThe good news about abuse not being an opinion is that there is a line to be drawn, all you have to do is find that line - and that's where I come in. This book includes:Exact defnitions on the different kinds of emotional abuse and manipulation tactics used by abusers. If your abuser takes part in these behaviors, the line has been drawn.Quizzes, case studies and examples to help you see your relationship from the outside in. These exercises will help you answer questions as if you were an observer in the relationship helping you see things more clearly. My theory for why good people and good relationshps turn into bad ones and how this can happen to anyone. A roadmap and way to escape. Step by step instructions on how to confront an abuser and plan an escape out of an abusive relationship. Emotional abuse doesn't have to be complicated. If you are questioning your relationship or are reading this book for a friend, you can be sure that it will give you insight and guidance on how to determine if what you're dealing with is normal or cause for concern. Don't stay in the dark questioning and asking your friends for advice. Use this book as a concrete way to answer the question - am I being emotionally abused?Grab a copy of this book and get your answer.

Pdf:Covert Narcissism: Signs of a Covert Narcissist, Ways to Protect Yourself from Their Manipulation and How to Deal with Their Narcissism.Covert narcissism is a hidden and concealed form of narcissism, making it all the more difficult for the abuser to be confronted or 'outed' for their behavior. Covert narcissism is a passive-aggressive, hostile and toxic form of abuse that makes victims feel hopeless, unheard, hurt and confused by the abusers behavior. When you think of a narcissistic personality, it's likely you think of a loud, grandiose and 'look at me' type of character. A lot of people don't realize that there is a much stealthier, more introverted form of narcissism, and therefore covert narcissists can often get away with their toxic behavior without being found out.I was in a relationship with a covert narcissist. I know the frustration, disappointment, anger and humiliation a covert narc can make you feel. I understand the helplessness you feel when you're in a relationship that has such an invisible toxicity that you think no one would believe you if you told them about it.This book, driven by my desire to help and connect with other victims of narcissistic abuse, aims to give you the knowledge you need to stand up to covert narcissistic abuse. The chapters include:- What is a Covert Narcissist? The Six Giveaway Signs of a Covert Narcissist - Can a Covert Narcissist Love?- Confusing Conversations With a Covert Narcissist- The Effects Covert Narcissism Has on You- Setting Boundaries and Interacting With a Covert Narcissist- Looking After You - Ways to Leave a Vulnerable NarcissistI've been through a decade of narcissism and abuse, and I strive to support those who are / have been through this kind of emotional abuse. I hope this book can someway in helping you understand the dynamics of a narcissistic relationship, but most of all, I hope it helps you find the strength to relinquish your role as a source of narcissistic supply to your abuser.

In this book, Michelle shares the details of her struggle with genuine honesty, taking the reader on a twisted journey of love, pain and unyielding brutality that eventually leads…to peace. Mixing statistics, research and resource with her own account, she shows just how far someone in her situation can sink, why it happens and how they can always pick themselves back up. Those who hear Michelle's story will walk away with a newfound understanding about the horrors of domestic violence, how to escape and how to build a new, healthier life.

From Desperation to Destiny

Pdf Parenting From Desperation to Destiny

Pdf:From Desperation to Destiny.Diamonds come in all shapes and sizes, and the worth of each diamond varies. The diamond is put aside (rejected) and mined (cultivated). Then, it is cut (the hurt, the pain, the disappointment, the death, the molestation, the diagnosis, the divorce, the rape, the kidnapping, etc.) Then, the diamond is polished (passing test after test) and it is finally graded (totally surrendering and complete obedience) to be delivered to the world with great clarity and purpose.I was that diamond in the rough. But there was only one problem, no one ever noticed me for who I truly was. I was a hard worker and had great work ethic. I was honest and had good character. I was genuine, beautiful inside and out, and full of potential. I weathered any storm that came my way, no matter the gust of the winds. I was resilient, assertive, self-motivated, eager to learn, and ready to give my children the world. I never fit in. I truly stood out in the crowd.One day, I discovered myself. I saw my potential. I recognized my value. I understood my worth and started to create my future. I realized that people only do to you what you allow them to. They treat you the way you teach them to.This is my story, “From Desperation to Destiny: Finding Hope and Independence through Secret Struggles”

Pdf Parenting Signs Of Emotional Abuse: Finding the Line Between Acceptable Human Behavior and Abuse

Pdf:Signs Of Emotional Abuse: Finding the Line Between Acceptable Human Behavior and Abuse.*Get the paperback of this book and receive the Kindle ebook for free*What is the line between emotional abuse and normal human behavior? And who gets the right to draw that line?Are you feeling depressed and anxious because your mental health simply isn't doing well right now? Or is it a direct response to the emotional trauma that is being caused by an unhealthy relationship?These are all difficult questions to answer, and I understand how hard it can be to diagnose emotional abuse from the inside of a relationship. After having experienced an emotionally difficult relationship myself, I only came to truly realize how damaging it was after I had left the relationship. Why couldn't I see abuse while I was in the relationship?Ever since then, I have seen many friends get very comfortable in relationships that last for years but that I would consider abusive. Why is it that so many people find their way into relationships like this? The answer is because it's nearly impossible to see abuse from the inside. I made it a mission of mine to find out exactly how to diagnose an abusive relationship from inside a relationship, so that anyone going through abuse or trauma can find a way out. Understanding Why It’s Difficult to Pin Point Emotional AbuseAbusive behavior can be hard to define or prove and many people think that abuse is an “opinion”. I know a couple where the man is emotionally abused by the woman. I have often heard his friends say things like “well if she makes him happy then it’s ok”, or “if he’s ok with it then I guess it’s alright.”If you were saying these things about your own relationship you might say “yeah, but I don’t mind it when he does that” or “but I know she doesn’t mean it that way”. You are saying these things as if abuse is an opinion-based thing when it really isn’t. There is a line that changes things and moves behavior over into the abuse category and you do not get to determine where that line is. Abuse is not an opinion. This book will show you when behavior turns into abuseThe good news about abuse not being an opinion is that there is a line to be drawn, all you have to do is find that line - and that's where I come in. This book includes:Exact defnitions on the different kinds of emotional abuse and manipulation tactics used by abusers. If your abuser takes part in these behaviors, the line has been drawn.Quizzes, case studies and examples to help you see your relationship from the outside in. These exercises will help you answer questions as if you were an observer in the relationship helping you see things more clearly. My theory for why good people and good relationshps turn into bad ones and how this can happen to anyone. A roadmap and way to escape. Step by step instructions on how to confront an abuser and plan an escape out of an abusive relationship. Emotional abuse doesn't have to be complicated. If you are questioning your relationship or are reading this book for a friend, you can be sure that it will give you insight and guidance on how to determine if what you're dealing with is normal or cause for concern. Don't stay in the dark questioning and asking your friends for advice. Use this book as a concrete way to answer the question - am I being emotionally abused?Grab a copy of this book and get your answer.

Courage to Say No: A Pakistani Female Doctor's Battle Against Sexual Exploitation

Pdf Parenting Courage to Say No: A Pakistani Female Doctor's Battle Against Sexual Exploitation

Pdf:Courage to Say No: A Pakistani Female Doctor's Battle Against Sexual Exploitation.Sexual harassment is in the news almost every day. Countless women have been intimidated into silence or their careers and lives have been ruined because they refused to submit to unwanted sexual advances. Yet, sexual harassment coupled with corruption is not singularly an American affliction. It’s an ancient disease, a truly universal tale. Dr. Raana Mahmood's story, Courage to Stay No, is a narrative of standing up against sexual corruption in her home country of Pakistan. It epitomizes the courage, audacity, and determination required to resist becoming a victim in a culture that places little value on divorced women. One that openly allows men to have a second, a third, and a fourth wife, all at a man’s pleasure. After escaping from her husband's physical, verbal, and emotional abuse with her young son in tow, Dr. Mahmood filed for divorce and took up residency as gynecologist at a nearby hospital. After facing years of harassment from her colleagues for being a working woman, and suffering a nervous breakdown because of the vitriol, Dr. Mahmood eventually received a grant of asylum from the United States, where she became an advocate for other women looking to escape domestic violence and an inspiration to those suffering in silence. In the vein of Reading Lolita in Tehran and Infidel, Courage to Say No is a remarkable and empowering story for our times.
