Raising Parents, Raising Kids

Hands-on Wisdom for the Next Generation Dawn Menken, Arnold Mindell

Summary

In this cutting-edge book, therapist, parent, and visionary Dr. Dawn Menken introduces a fresh approach to the joy and wonder of the world of parenting. Going beyond the conventional "how to" book, this is the ultimate guide to nurturing the emotional, spiritual, and social lives of children, helping parents create a more meaningful relationship with their children by supporting their deepest nature. Loaded with practical tips, inspiring examples, and her own intimate stories, Menken uses the principles of process-oriented psychology to help parents, caretakers, and educators navigate the complex waters of conflict, power dynamics, diversity, and other social challenges, offering groundbreaking insights and techniques to tackle the burgeoning problem of bullying. Menken goes on to address typical challenges of the parenting relationship, parents' own personal growth, and the call to parent not only our children, but also the planet, and ultimately ourselves.

Cybertraps for the Young

Frederick S. Lane

Summary

Approaching the risks for children on the Internet in a thought-provoking and intellectual manner, this study skillfully integrates contemporary news reports and disturbing legal cases to show how Facebook and other ready-made forums for information exchange are breaking down boundaries of privacy and facilitating a growing number of criminal convictions for cyberbullying, child pornography, hacking, and copyright infringement. Also included is a discussion of how the widespread use of camera phones, mobile tablets, and social media sites has given rise to a new and dangerous practice among teens: sexting. This reference provides parents with an authoritative lesson in cyberethics and practical instructions for instituting household internet policies, as well as school officials and communities with lessons on how to educate children about the responsible use of emerging mobile technologies.

Raising Competent Children

A New Way of Developing Relationships With Children Jesper Juul

Summary

A family therapist offers a new way of parenting through nurturing respect and dignity between parent and child

Jesper Juul argues that today's families are at an exciting crossroad. The authoritarian parenting style based on obedience, conformity, and physical and emotional violence that governed traditional hierarchical families is being transformed. Here he talks about embracing a new set of values, based on the assumption that families must be built not on authoritarian force or democratic tyranny but on dignity and reciprocity between parent and child. He argues that children are competent to express their feelings from birth, and are eager to cooperate as well as assume responsibility for their personal and social behavior; and that parents must work on listening to and learning from children. With plenty of examples from everyday life, the book offers day-to-day skills on how to

change negative behavior, redefining the way to look at a child's behavior and the relationship within families.

The Right Instrument for Your Child

Atarah Ben-Tovim, MBE, Douglas Boyd

Summary

An updated edition of the definitive guide to choosing the right instrument to unlock a child's musical potential

Offering a simple and practical method of selecting the right instrument for the individual child, this unique book starts with the child's physical and emotional makeup, and uses questionnaires and charts to systematically explain the pros and cons of various instruments. For instance, a child who loves company might not enjoy playing the piano as it is predominantly a solo instrument appealing to quiet introverts, yet many a child has been forced to learn only to give up as soon as they are allowed. As well as examining each individual instrument, it gives advice on how some of the pitfalls can be avoided and provides information on buying and practicing. Based on years of research by the authors, this is a comprehensive and inspirational book that will help unlock every child's potential.

The Thriving Family

Your Handbook for a Happy Home David Coleman

Summary

How the use of six core principles can ensure happy, healthy children grow up to be happy, healthy adults

Drawing from his vast experience working with families, along with his own experiences as a parent, clinical psychologist David Coleman has devised a program based upon six core values-trust, kindness, responsibility, honesty, respect, and thoughtfulness-that form the basis of a thriving family life. Identifying characteristics of the properly thriving family include: recognizing and embracing the fact that life is challenging; acknowledging individuality and seeking to develop the unique potentials of each family member in a nurturing environment; seeking to understand its own history and how this is brought to bear on family life, and to find new solutions to old problems; and seeking to create an unshakeable unit where children will become strong, considerate, and independent adults, regardless of the challenges that the family faces on its journey. This book draws on the six

A Teenager's Guide to Executive Functions Randy Kulman

Summary

Executive functions are a set of thinking, problem-solving, and self-control skills that tell the brain what to do, and this book demonstrates the ways kids use executive functions in school, at home, and in their other activities and shows how these skills can be improved through sustained effort. Beginning with a test to determine executive-functioning strengths and weaknesses, the book then explores in detail eight distinct sets of skills, including planning, organization, focus, time management, self-control, flexibility, memory, and self- awareness. In addition to giving an overview of each executive-functioning skill and how these skills are used in the real world, the book-intended as a self-directed learning guide for students themselves-also provides teens tools and tips for improving executive functions, including how to use video games, iPods, cell phones, and other electronic media to their advantage. A section for teachers and parents who may be dealing with a teenager with one or more executive dysfunctions is also included, as well as information for teens on how to rec

Parenting the Bright and Challenging Child Gill Hines, Alison Baverstock, Jacqueline Wilson

Summary

How parents of bright and challenging children between 8 and 12 can identify and handle areas of concern, and prepare for the challenges of the teen years When parents find themselves answering yes to such questions as Can your child run rings around you, and always have the last word? Is your child strong-willed and very independent for his or her age? Do they refuse to take "no" for an answer?, it is likely that they have a "bright and challenging" child. While there are many positives to parenting such children, it can also be very demanding. This guide, designed specifically for the parents of young children who are independent, risk-taking, and hard to rein in, will explain why it is important to set and reinforce boundaries, and how to do so. It also identifies the issues and risks that such children may face, and helps parents to prepare for them. Parents will also learn how they and their child can discuss sensitive issues together, such as sex and drugs, and will learn how to help their child to be more aware of the

Parents' Guide to IQ Testing and Gifted Education

All You Need to Know to Make the Right Decisions for Your Child David Palmer

Summary

Parents of brainy kids can understand what's behind IQ testing and selection for special school programs with this guide to gifted education. Written by an IQ specialist, this guide details the history of IQ tests and how they measure intelligence, and familiarizes parents with signs of giftedness they can look for in their own children. Acknowledging that some bright and gifted kids can reach their full potential in a regular classroom, a detailed analysis of how gifted programs work helps parents decide which gifted programs, if any, are right for their children. A section on twice-exceptional, or "2E" kids, shows parents how to recognize signs of learning disabilities in their otherwise bright or achieving kids and how to access school support for those particular problems.

Respectful Parents, Respectful Kids

7 Keys to Turn Family Conflict into Cooperation Sura Hart, Victoria Kindle Hodson

Summary

More than a tool to correct bad behavior, this handbook urges parents to move beyond typical discipline techniques by creating an environment based on mutual respect, emotional safety, and positive, open communication. The seven outlined principles redefine the parent-dominated family by teaching parents how to achieve mutual parent/child respect without being submissive, set firm limits without using demands or coercion, and empower children to open up, cooperate, and realize their own innate potential. Based on Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication process, the framework helps parents break down the barriers to outstanding relationships with their kids by avoiding destructive language and habits that keep parents and children from understanding one another. Activities, stories, and resources help parents immediately apply the seven keys to any parenting situation.

To Raise Happy Kids, Put Your Marriage First

David Code

Summary

A Win-Win Approach to Marriage and Parenting

All parents want their children to be happy. But many couples today go too far, letting everything revolve around their kids. This hurts the children and the marriage. The good news is you don't have to choose between your spouse and your kids. Drawing from the latest research in neuroscience and his study of families around the world, David Code explains why putting your marriage first actually produces happier kids.

In this book you'll learn how confronting your anxiety liberates your children to establish their own identity, learn self-reliance, and become more confident adults. You'll also discover why you already married the perfect spouse, and why it's okay to have tough arguments. A good marriage sets a great example for your children's future relationships, and that's win-win for the whole family.

A Parent's Guide to Mindful Awareness and Connection Raelynn Maloney

Summary

Helping moms and dads stay present, aware, and connected with their kids, this practical guide transforms day- to-day parenting into a positive and fulfilling relationship for both parents and children. A series of simple practices is provided, making it possible to cultivate three different types of awareness-self, relationship, and moment. With these parenting tools, this resource makes it possible to manage the daily pressures and challenges of parenting with ease, helping children to become capable of cultivating strong relationships independently. Additional topics covered include how to actively prevent the passing-down of negative relationship patterns; shifting children's moods, attitudes, and behaviors; and staying connected to children during disagreements, when giving consequences, or while setting limits.

Buddhism for Mothers

A Calm Approach to Caring for Yourself and Your Children Sarah Napthali

Summary

Firmly grounded in the day-to-day reality of being a mother, this revolutionary guide discusses Buddhist teachings as applied to the everyday challenges of bringing up children

Teaching how to become a calmer and happier mother through Buddhist teachings, this enlightened book helps mothers achieve their full potentials to be with their children in the all-important present moment, as well as to gain the most possible joy out of being with them. Parenthood can be a time of great inner turmoil for a woman- yet parenting books invariably focus on nurturing children rather than the mothers who struggle to raise them. This book is different; simply put, it's a book for mothers. Using Buddhist practices, Sarah Napthali offers ways of coping with the day-to-day challenges of motherhood. These ways also allow space for the deeper reflections about who we are and what makes us happy. By acknowledging the sorrows as well as the joys of mothering, Buddhism for Mothers can help enable a shift in perspective-so that a mother's mind can guide them through the day instead of dragging them

Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children

Becoming a Mindful Parent Sarah Napthali

Summary

From the author of the acclaimed Buddhism for Mothers, a guide to discovering the path to meaningful, spiritual, and satisfying motherhood

A combination of personal narrative and stories gathered from mothers, this guide shows how spiritual and mindful parenting can help all mothers-Buddhists and non-Buddhists-be more open, attentive, and content. By guiding mothers on a spiritual path, this evocation also helps them cultivate wisdom, open-heartedness, and a better understanding of themselves and their children. The Buddhist teachings and principles help answer questions that all mothers face, especially those with young children: Who are my children? Who am I? How can I do my best by my children and myself? What to do about all that housework? and Is this all? Written in a clear

and engaging style, this warm and simple meditation facilitates parenting with awareness, purpose, and love.

Buddhism for Mothers of Schoolchildren

Finding Calm in the Chaos of the School Years Sarah Napthali

Summary

Raising school children is a radically different experience from tending children under the age of five. With children at school, life is both easier and harder and there are very different challenges on the horizon-mothers are often thinking of going back to work, or juggling work-life balance issues. They are questioning what they want out of life, how they want to interact with the world, and creating new definitions for themselves. Children are more demanding too, asking questions, testing boundaries, and beginning to define themselves as separate from their parents. Sarah Napthali explores the distinct issues arising from this phase of motherhood and how Buddhism can play a role in providing answers and direction, in her usual warm, wise, inclusive, and accessible style.

Her working life has ranged from teaching English as a Second Language and corporate training, to human rights activism and interpreting. She is the author of Buddhism for Mothers and Buddhism for Mothers with Young Children.

What Your Kids Really Want and Need to Know about Alcohol and Drugs Paul Dillon

Summary

Answers to the real questions that teenagers ask about alcohol and drugs, and how parents can get these important conversations started

Aimed at parents who are wondering how to talk meaningfully to their kids about drugs, this book offers guidance

in determining when is the right time to start talking to kids about drugs and how to reduce the influence of peer

pressure. It will help the parent who wants to make sure a party they hold for their teenager doesn't get out of

control. It also provides parents with answers to the most commonly asked drug-related questions from teens:

Can you really overdose on alcohol? What does it mean if I don't remember things when I drink? How do I look after someone who has drunk too much? Can ecstasy really kill? Do energy drinks make the effect of alcohol much greater when you use them as a mixer? Parents are being told constantly to talk to their kids about binge drinking and drugs, but asking "Are you taking drugs?" won't do it-this book offers an approach that will give teenagers the information they desperately need to keep themselves and thei
