Bracingly candid, sweetly indignant, and writing with an unchecked sense of entitlement, the Internet s wildly popular Honest Todd...ler delivers a guide to the parenting techniques he deems acceptable (keep the cake coming and the apple juice undiluted). The toddler stage can be a rude awakening for parents, whose sweet infants morph, seemingly overnight, into tyrants ready to turn simple errands into hellish and humiliating experiences. Trying to convince your defiant darling to do something as simple as put on her shoes can feel like going to war. It s not all blood, sweat, and tears, though. Toddlers can be charming little creatures, with their unfettered enthusiasm, wide grins, and ready hugs. In fact, what makes toddlers so fascinating is their unique blend of cute and demonic behavior. A toddler will take your hand and say "I love you," then slap you in the face. Now, The Honest Toddler provides an indispensable guide to parenting that places the toddler s happiness front and center. Who better to instruct parents on the needs of toddlers than a toddler himself? In a voice that is at once inimitable and universal, The Honest Toddler turns his sharp eye to a wide range of subjects, including play date etiquette, meal preparation, healthy sleep habits, and the pernicious influence of self-appointed experts and so-called doctors. The result is a parenting guide like no other, one that will have moms and dads laughing through tears as they recognize their own child in the ongoing shenanigans of one bravely honest toddler.

You Can Start a Revolution in Your Family . . . Tonight ScreamFree Parenting is not just about lowering your voice. It s about lea...rning to calm your emotional reactions and learning to focus on your own behavior more than your kids behavior . . . for their benefit. Our biggest enemy as parents is not the TV, the Internet, or even drugs. Our biggest enemy is our own emotional reactivity. When we say we “lost it” with our kids, the “it” in that sentence is our own adulthood. And then we wonder why our kids have so little respect for us, why our kids seem to have all the power in the family. It s time to do it differently. And you can. You can start to create and enjoy the types of calm, mutually respectful, and loving relationships with your kids that you ve always craved. You can begin to revolutionize your family, starting tonight. Parenting is not about kids, it s about parents. If you re not in control, then you cannot be in charge. What every kid really needs are parents who are able to keep their cool no matter what. Easier said than done? Not anymore, thanks to ScreamFree Parenting, the principle-based approach that s inspiring parents everywhere to truly revolutionize their family dynamics. Moving beyond the child-centered, technique-based approaches that ultimately fail, the ScreamFree way compels you to: focus on yourself calm yourself down, and grow yourself up By staying calm and connected with your kids, you begin to operate less out of your deepest fears and more out of your highest principles, revolutionizing your relationships in the process. ScreamFree Parenting is not just another parenting book. It s the first parenting book that maintains from beginning to end that parenting is NOT about kids . . . it s about parents. As parents pay more attention to controlling their own behavior instead of their kids behavior, the result is stronger, more rewarding, and more fulfilling family relationships. For those of you reading who are parents, know parents, or have had parents, the notion that the greatest thing you can do for your children is to learn to focus on yourself may sound strange, even heretical. It s not. Here s why: we are the only ones we can control. We cannot control our kids we cannot control the behavior of any other human being. And yet, so many “experts” keep giving us more tools (“techniques”) to help us try to do just that. And, of course, the more we try to control, the more out of control our children become. “Don t make me come up there.” “Don t make me pull this car over.” “How many times do I have to tell you?” Even our language suggests that our kids have control over us. It s no wonder that we end up screaming. Or shutting down. Or simply giving up. And the charts, refrigerator magnets, family meetings, and other techniques in most typical parenting books just don t work. They end up making us feel more frustrated and more powerless in this whole parenting thing. This practical, effective guide for parents of all ages with kids of all ages introduces proven principles for overcoming the anxieties and stresses of parenting and setting new patterns of connection and cooperation. Well-written in an engaging, conversational tone, the book is sensible, straightforward, and based on the experiences of hundreds of actual families. It will help all parents become calming authorities in their homes, bring peace to their families today, and give kids what they need to grow into caring, self-directed adults tomorrow. Read More

Surviving a Borderline Parent is the first step-by-step guide for adult children of parents with borderline personality disorder. ...Between 6 and 10 million people in the US suffer from borderline personality disorder. This book teaches adult children how to overcome the devastating effects of growing up with a parent who suffers from BPD. Although relatively common, borderline personality disorder (BPD) is often overlooked or misdiagnosed by therapists and clinicians and denied by those who suffer from it. Symptoms of this problem include unpredictability, violence and uncontrollable anger, deep depression and self-abuse. Parents with BPD are often unable to provide for the basic physical and emotional needs of their children. In an ironic and painful role reversal, BPD parents can actually raise children to be their caretakers. They may burden even very young children with adult responsibilities. If you were raised by a BPD parent, your childhood was a volatile and painful time. This book, the first written specifically for children of borderline parents, offers step-by-step guidance to understanding and overcoming the lasting effects of being raised by a person suffering from this disorder. Discover specific coping strategies for dealing with issues common to children of borderline parents: low self-esteem, lack of trust, guilt, and hypersensitivity. Make the major decision whether to confront your parent about his or her condition. Read More

Psychologist Madeline Levine brings together cutting-edge research and thirty years of clinical experience to explode once and for... all the myth that good grades, high test scores, and college acceptances should define the parenting endgame. Parents, educators, and the media wring their hands about the plight of America s children and teens soaring rates of emotional problems, limited coping skills, disengagement from learning and yet there are ways to reverse these disheartening trends. Teach Your Children Well acknowledges that every parent wants successful children. However, until we are clearer about our core values and the parenting choices that are most likely to lead to authentic, and not superficial, success, we will continue to raise exhausted, externally driven, impaired children who believe they are only as good as their last performance. Real success is always an inside job, argues Levine, and is measured not by today s report card but by the people our children become fifteen or twenty years down the line. Refusing to be diverted by manufactured controversies such as "tiger moms versus coddling moms," Levine confronts the real issues behind the way we push some of our kids to the breaking point while dismissing the talents and interests of many others. She shows us how to shift our focus from the excesses of hyperparenting and the unhealthy reliance on our children for status and meaning to a parenting style that concentrates on both enabling academic success as well as developing a sense of purpose, well-being, connection, and meaning in our children s lives. Teach Your Children Well is a call to action.

Children need love. Parents need respect. It is as simple and complex as that! When frustrated with an unresponsive child, a paren...t doesn t declare, “You don t love me.” Instead the parent asserts, “You are being disrespectful right now.” A parent needs to feel respected, especially during conflicts. When upset a child does not whine, “You don t respect me.” Instead, a child pouts, “You don t love me.” A child needs to feel loved, especially during disputes. But here s the rub: An unloved child (or teen) negatively reacts in a way that feels disrespectful to a parent. A disrespected parent negatively reacts in a way that feels unloving to the child. This dynamic gives birth to the FAMILY CRAZY CYCLE. So how is one to break out of this cycle? Best-selling author Emerson Eggerichs has studied the family dynamic for more than 30 years, having his Ph.D. in Child and Family Ecology. As a senior pastor for nearly two decades, Eggerichs builds on a foundation of strong biblical principles, walking the reader through an entirely new way to approach the family dynamic. For instance, God reveals ways to defuse the craziness with our children from preschooler to teen, plus how to motivate them to obey and how to deal with them when they don t. In the Bible, God has spoken specifically to parents on how to parent. This book is about that revelation. Read More

Children don t come with instructions, so parents have always done their best and made them up as they go along. And, for good or ...for ill, they are constantly besieged with advice on pregnancy and parenting. If the mother s carrying high, it s commonly held that the child will be a boy. It s also said that babies cry just to exercise their lungs. Have you heard that all newborns are immune to colds? The authors of 100 Pieces of Folk Wisdom for Pregnancy and Parenting take a new approach to unsolicited advice: they confirm or debunk it. Sorting the common sense from the nonsense, this is the handbook to consult when relatives (and strangers) offer their well-intentioned but sometimes misguided suggestions. Will propping up your baby put excess strain on her back? Is your bouncing baby boy healthier than another baby with a lower body weight? Does sugar really make kids run around in circles? Entertaining and informative, the advice in this informative guide will help new parents wade through the do s and don ts of pregnancy and parenting while steering clear of the myths and misconceptions. Full of charm and sound advice, 100 Pieces of Folk Wisdom offers practical tips to parents and addresses misconceptions about pregnancy and parenting. Can you pick out the fact from the fiction? Try these: Feed a cold and starve a fever. Breakfast is your child s most important meal of the day. When you re pregnant, it s best to sleep on your side. Don t let strangers handle your newborn. Sugar makes a child hyperactive. Read More

Here are just a few of the ideas in this book that parents have actually used to make life with young children easier: Childproofi...ng: Keep a rubber band around the toilet tissue roll to prevent waste and clogged toilets due to "flushing fascination." Drape a towel over the top of the bathroom door to keep children from shutting it tightly and locking themselves in. Tantrums: Listen. Acknowledge the source of frustration. Whisper in your child s ear. The screaming may stop or turn into a giggle. Disappear into another room. You ll feel better and the tantrum will lose steam. Hair care: Sit your child in a high chair to prevent "wandering." Spread a newspaper underneath. Remove gum from hair with peanut butter. Work it into the hair and then comb out both gum and peanut butter. Lansky, a Family Circle columnist and bestselling author, has added over 400practical, parent-tested ideas to this popular backlist bestseller to make itthe most complete and up-to-date book of its kind.
