A successful co-parenting relationship is as vital to your child s well-being and health as nutritious food or proper exercise. Re...search, anecdotal evidence, and plain common sense all point to the fact that children are happier, healthier, and better adjusted when both of their parents play an active role in their lives. Studies also show that the trauma children experience in the wake of a divorce or separation can be lessened when they see their parents getting along. Kids whose parents successfully co-parent feel more secure than those who have limited or no connection to one of their parents post divorce. Co-Parenting 101 is based on the premise that co-parenting is a must, not an option. The involvement of both parents not just the primary guardian is the cornerstone of successful co-parenting. This is the first book written by a formerly married couple for whom co parenting is central to their day to day lives, and it offers a comprehensive, personal, and upfront look at how to effectively raise kids with an ex-spouse. Authors Deesha Philyaw and Michael D. Thomas, the creators of the popular co-parenting website, co-parenting101.org, share their own experiences raising their children together, as well as provide professional advice from co-parenting experts. Through practical tips combined with expert parental strategies, this book a great resource for divorced parents with children. For parents, less time stressed out about legal wrangling means more time to be fully present and engaged with the children. By learning to put their animosity aside, parents can focus on putting their kids first.

When parents and educators fight, our kids lose. So why are good, reasonable parents and skilled, compassionate educators locked i...n battle? After listening to hundreds of parents, teachers and school administrators, Cassie Zupke found the answer. Although the demands of educating a child with autism forces parents and educators to work closely together, their ability to function as a team is often hampered by their lack of understanding of each other s motivations and limitations. This creates an environment of mistrust, frustration and fear that can turn a classroom into a war zone. We Said, They Said: 50 Things Parents and Teachers of Children with Autism Want Each Other to Know voices what parents and educators want to say to each other, but don t. It explains why they do what they do. It helps fill the chasms of misunderstanding that breed assumptions like ?They don t care about my child,? and ?They re just in denial.? It gives educators and parents the necessary tools to build the relationships they need to help their children. ISBN-13: 9781935274865 Publisher: Future Horizons, Inc.

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 FAMIL ¿Y 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

A San Francisco Chronicle Lit Pick "Much of the book is astonishingly funny; the rest would break your heart." Colm Tóibín Anne E...nright is one of the most acclaimed novelists of her generation. The Gathering won the 2007 Man Booker Prize, and her follow-up novel, The Forgotten Waltz, garnered universal praise for her luminous language and deep insight into relationships. Now, in Making Babies, Enright offers a new kind of memoir: an unapologetic look at the very personal experience of becoming a mother. With a refreshing no-nonsense attitude, Enright opens up about the birth and first two years of her children s lives. Enright was married for eighteen years before she and her husband Martin, a playwright, decided to have children. Already a confident, successful writer, Enright continued to work in her native Ireland after each of her two babies was born. While each baby slept, those first two years of life, Enright wrote, in dispatches, about the mess, the glory, and the raw shock of motherhood. Here, unfiltered and irreverent, are Enright s keen reactions to the pains of pregnancy, the joys of breast milk, and the all-too-common pressures to be the ?perfect? parent. Supremely observant and endlessly quizzical, Enright is never saccharine, always witty, but also deeply loving. Already a bestseller in the UK, Making Babies brings Enright s autobiographical writing to American readers for the first time. Tender and candid, it captures beautifully just what it s like for a working woman to become a mother. The result is a moving chronicle of parenthood from one of the most distinctive and gifted authors writing today. ISBN-13: 9780393084078 Publisher: Norton, W. W. and Company, Inc.

A tour of global practices that will inspire American parents to expand their horizons (and geographical borders) and learn that t...here s more than one way to diaper a baby. Mei-Ling Hopgood, a first-time mom from suburban Michigan now living in Buenos Aires was shocked that Argentine parents allow their children to stay up until all hours of the night. Could there really be social and developmental advantages to this custom? Driven by a journalist s curiosity and a new mother s desperation for answers, Hopgood embarked on a journey to learn how other cultures approach the challenges all parents face: bedtimes, potty training, feeding, teaching, and more. Observing parents around the globe and interviewing anthropologists, educators, and child-care experts, she discovered a world of new ideas. The Chinese excel at potty training, teaching their wee ones as young as six months old. Kenyans wear their babies in colorful cloth slings not only is it part of their cultural heritage, but strollers seem outright silly on Nairobi s chaotic sidewalks. And the French are experts at turning their babies into healthy, adventurous eaters. Hopgood tested her discoveries on her spirited toddler, Sofia, with some enlightening results. This intimate and surprising look at the ways other cultures raise children offers parents the option of experimenting with tried and true methods from around the world and shows that there are many ways to be a good parent.

How many parents have found themselves thinking: I can t believe I just said to my child the very thing my parents used to say to ...me! Am I just destined to repeat the mistakes of my parents? In Parenting from the Inside Out, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, M.Ed., explore the extent to which our childhood experiences actually do shape the way we parent. Drawing upon stunning new findings in neurobiology and attachment research, they explain how interpersonal relationships directly impact the development of the brain, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories, which will help them raise compassionate and resilient children. Born out of a series of parents workshops that combined Siegel s cutting-edge research on how communication impacts brain development with Hartzell s thirty years of experience as a child-development specialist and parent educator, Parenting from the Inside Out guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.

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 the...m. 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 most important person in a young girl s life? Her father. Teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker has the data and clinical experien...ce to prove it. After more than twenty years of counseling girls, she knows that fathers, more than anyone else, set the course for their daughters lives. Now Dr. Meeker, author of the critically acclaimed Epidemic: How Teen Sex Is Killing Our Kids, shows you how to strengthen--or rebuild--your bond with your daughter, and how to use it to shape her life, and yours, for the better. Directly challenging the feminist attack on traditional masculinity, Dr. Meeker demonstrates that the most important factor for girls growing up into confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. To have one, she shows, is the best protection against eating disorders, failure in school, STDs, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life. Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters reveals: The essential characteristics and virtues of strong fathers and how to develop them How daughters take cues from their fathers on everything from drug use, drinking, smoking, and having sex, to self-esteem, moodiness, and seeking attention from boys Why girls want you to place restrictions on them (even though they ll complain when you do) How to become a hero to your daughter and why she needs that more than anything The one mistake fathers make that is the primary cause of girls "hooking up" Why girls depend on the guidance of fathers through, and even beyond, their college years Recipe for disaster: the notion that girls "need to make their own decisions and mistakes" Why girls need God and how your faith, or lack thereof, will influence her How to communicate with your daughter and how not to True stories of "prodigal daughters" and how their fathers helped bring them back Dads, you are far more powerful than you think you are. Your daughters need the support that only fathers can provide and if you are willing to follow Dr. Meeker s advice on how to guide your daughter, to stand between her and a toxic culture, your rewards will be unmatched.

Could having the occasional small bowl of ice cream lead to a midnight craving for pickles and ice cream? It s common knowledge th...at diet and exercise have profound effects on your health. Can they affect your ability to get pregnant, too? Until now, the answer to that question was a qualified "Maybe." Today, it s "Yes!" thanks to exciting findings from a landmark long-term study of female nurses.

You can increase your chances of getting pregnant with such simple strategies as: Avoiding trans fats Eating more beans, nuts, and other fertility-boosting plant protein Embracing whole grains such as oatmeal and barley Having a glass of whole milk or other full-fat dairy product every day (a small bowl of ice cream every now and then counts, too!)
