It can take all of your powers of persuasion to get your little prince to take his rightful throne. Framing potty-training as a ti...me of accomplishment and independence is the best way to get it done, and the Prince of the Potty book by Innovative Kids does a great job teaching kids how to use the potty in a way that's both playful and fun. The Prince of the Potty book uses simple language that isn't too babyish to tell the story of a proud little prince and his newly-acquired bathroom habits. We especially appreciated how the little boy in the book is depicted as the prime mover of his own story - he decides to take on the challenge of the potty, with the help of his royal parents. Writer Nora Gaydos is an elementary school teacher with tremendous expertise in pre-reading skills, so this book is also tailored to lead your child towards learning to read. And illustrator Akemi Gutierrez is a seasoned illustrator and animator, whose drawings are absolutely adorable and kid-friendly. Read More

Lawmakers and judges often enact and enforce laws and policies that impact youth. The extent to which these legal actions are sens...itive to juveniles' perspectives and experiences has changed recently. Compared to an earlier time when juvenlies were treated the same as adults, many policies are now created with the needs of juveniles in mind, thanks in part to psychological studies that have revealed that the decision making, behavior, and cognitions of children vary drastically from those of adults. <br><br>Unique in its angle and in the breadth of social issues it covers, <em>Psychology, Law, and the Wellbeing of Children</em> brings together new research and analyses to address how legal actions affect children's wellbeing. It addresses how civil and criminal law has evolved to protect, and sometimes inadvertently neglect or harm, the wellbeing and development of children. Each chapter describes a law or policy affecting children, identifies the relevant psychological issues, reviews the research that has been conducted or should be conducted, and provides recommendations for professionals in law and/or psychology. With contributions from top researchers and practitioners in the field, chapters discuss many current debates, including issues such as gender-specific programming for juvenile delinquents, interrogations of juveniles, changes in divorce and custody procedures, programs for imprisoned mothers, and legal actions adopted to protect the health of children and society (e.g., HPV vaccinations, considering child obesity to be abuse). This book will be a vital resource for those interested in protecting the wellbeing of children, including academics and researchers in psychology, criminology, and sociology; practitioners such as judges, attorneys, forensic psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers; and graduate and law students.

Once upon a time there was a family, father, mother and 3 kids, who did not sleep well. They were the Sparrows. Everything went wr...ong in their lives. Sorrows, whispers, lapses, fights and discussions were frequent and unpleasant. In despair they called Granny, since she knew things from the good old days. Granny came with a smile, bringing with her the enchanted world of Mister Sleep and his friends. Mister Sleep knew lots of magic tricks. Along with him, there were also fairs that could tell the children the proper bedtime and make them grow while asleep, becoming smarter and stronger. With Mister Sleep there were also some amazing guys who balanced children bodies and minds so that they learned more, ate better, were keen at sports, and most of all were quieter and happier. The Sparrows learned how to sleep, and discovered the pleasures of the trip with Mister Sleep. The Sparrow family smiled for their new life. This is the story of this book, in which science, magic and poetry play together a beautiful and realistic song. The Book framework: Sleep reduction, currently observed in all continents, increases significantly the risks of: hypertension, coronary disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, insomnia, depression, cancer, accidents and death. Both together, Teresa Paiva and Helena Rebelo Pinto, worried with the terrible sleep habits of nowadays children and adolescents and the corresponding long term negative and deleterious impact upon youngsters physical, cognitive and emotional health, implemented a national program to raise sufficient awareness to change habits in significant proportions: it is called the "Sleep and School Project".

A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine.
