The groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intract...able behaviours, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field, now updated to include the most recent research. Almost everyone knows an explosive child, one whose frequent, severe fits of temper leave his or her parents standing helpless in their fear, frustration, and guilt. Most of these parents have tried everything reasoning, behaviour modification, therapy, medication but to no avail. They wonder if their child is deviant or just plain bad. Dr. Ross Greene has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren t bad, and neither are their parents. Rather, explosive children suffer from a physiological deficiency in frustration tolerance and flexibility. Throughout this compassionate book, Dr. Greene demonstrates why traditional treatments don t work for these kids and offers a new conceptual framework for understanding their behaviour, along with new language to describe it. He explains the latest neuroscience findings about the importance of flexibility, and, most important, he shows parents specific, practical ways they can recognize the signs of an impending explosion, defuse tension, and reduce frustration levels for the entire family. For parents, psychologists, educators and ADHD groups. In addition to the scientific foundation of the book, Greene addresses parents in practical ways that will help show results in difficult children and their effect on families. Read More

There are approximately 3,712 ways for a guy to look stupid during pregnancy - this book s here to help you avoid all most of them.... And here s your first hint: Focus on what you can be doing for her rather than what s happening to her. She s pregnant. She knows that. You know that. And her 152 baby books tell her exactly what she can expect. Your job is to learn what you can do between the stick turning blue and the drive to the delivery room to make the next nine months go as smoothly as possible. That s where John Pfeiffer steps in. Like any good coach, he s been through it. He s dealt with the morning sickness and doctor visits, painting the baby s nursery and packing the overnight bag, choosing a name, hospital, and the color of the car-seat cover. All the while he remained positive and responsive - there with a "You re beautiful" when necessary - but assertive during the decision-making process (he didn t want to wind up with a kid named Percy). And now it s your turn. She might be having the baby, but you have plenty of responsibilities. Read More

The secret behind France s astonishingly well-behaved children. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, sh...e doesn t aspire to become a "French parent." French parenting isn t a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren t doing anything special. Yet, the French children Druckerman knows sleep through the night at two or three months old while those of her American friends take a year or more. French kids eat well-rounded meals that are more likely to include braised leeks than chicken nuggets. And while her American friends spend their visits resolving spats between their kids, her French friends sip coffee while the kids play. Motherhood itself is a whole different experience in France. There s no role model, as there is in America, for the harried new mom with no life of her own. French mothers assume that even good parents aren t at the constant service of their children and that there s no need to feel guilty about this. They have an easy, calm authority with their kids that Druckerman can only envy. Of course, French parenting wouldn t be worth talking about if it produced robotic, joyless children. In fact, French kids are just as boisterous, curious, and creative as Americans. They re just far better behaved and more in command of themselves. While some American toddlers are getting Mandarin tutors and preliteracy training, French kids are- by design-toddling around and discovering the world at their own pace. With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman-a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal-sets out to learn the secrets to raising a society of good little sleepers, gourmet eaters, and reasonably relaxed parents. She discovers that French parents are extremely strict about some things and strikingly permissive about others. And she realizes that to be a different kind of parent, you don t just need a different parenting philosophy. You need a very different view of what a child actually is. While finding her own firm non, Druckerman discovers that children-including her own-are capable of feats she d never imagined. Read More

Kiyosaki expands on his belief that the school system was created to churn out Es / Employees... those "A Students" who read wel...l, memorize well and test well... and not the creative thinkers, visionaries and dreamers ?entrepreneurs-in-the-making... those "C Students who grow up to be the innovators and creators of new ideas, businesses, applications and products. The book urges parents not to be obsessed with their kids "letter grades" ("good grades" might only mean they or the student themselves were successful in jamming a square peg into a round hole...) and focus, instead, on concepts, ideas, and helping their child find their true genius, their special gift. The path they can pursue with a love and true passion. Robert showcases success stories of "C Students" who grew up to be phenomenal successes ? and HIRED those "A Students"(attorneys, accountants, and other school-smart specialists) to work in their businesses... while the more average students, "B Students," often find themselves in government-type jobs...

Right after "Is it a boy or a girl?" and "What s his/her name?," the next question people invariably ask new parents is "Are you g...etting any sleep?" Unfortunately, the answer is usually "Not much." In fact, studies show that approximately 25% of young children experience some type of sleep problem and, as any bleary-eyed parent will attest, it is one of the most difficult challenges of parenting. Drawing on her ten years of experience in the assessment and treatment of common sleep problems in children, Dr. Jodi A. Mindell now provides tips and techniques, the answers to commonly asked questions, and case studies and quotes from parents who have successfully solved their children s sleep problems. Unlike other books on the subject, Dr. Mindell also offers practical tips on bedtime, rather than middle-of-the-night-sleep training, and shows how all members of the family can cope with the stresses associated with teaching a child to sleep. "...a child psychologist explains how parents can teach their baby or toddler to fall asleep and how parents and other members of the family can cope with the stresses a sleepless child can create."
