Hold on to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers
Children take their lead from their friends: being `cool' matters more than anything else. Shaping values, identity and codes of behaviour, peer groups are often far more influential than parents. But this situation is far from natural, and it can be dangerous - it undermines family cohesion, interferes with healthy development, and fosters a hostile and sexualized youth culture. Children end up becoming conformist, anxious and alienated. In Hold on to Your Kids, acclaimed physician and bestselling author Gabor Mate joins forces with Gordon Neufeld, a psychologist with a reputation for penetrating to the heart of complex parenting. Together they pinpoint the causes of this breakdown and offer practical advice on how to `reattach' to sons and daughters, establish the hierarchy at home, make children feel safe and understood, and earn back your children's loyalty and love. This updated edition also addresses the unprecedented parenting challenges posed by the rise of digital devices and social media. By helping to reawaken our instincts, Mate and Neufeld empower parents to be what nature intended: a true source of contact, security and warmth for their children.

'This is a great kids cookery book. Emily is a star' - Simon Rimmer 'The book I'd like to force into any mother's kitchen' - Prue Leith 'Emily has managed to combine her mummy knowledge and passion for food to make a truly helpful and brilliant cookbook' - Priya Tew, RD, BSc (Hons), Msc Get Your Kids to Eat Anything is an achievable 'how to' for parents in the battle to overcome picky eating and 'make new the norm'. Emily Leary's unique 5-phase programme looks at the issue of 'fussy eating' in a holistic way that links imagination with food, and which situates parents alongside - not in opposition to - their children. You'll embark on a food discovery which will change the way you look at food and bring healthy variety into every meal for years to come. You will ease away from the same four-to-six staple meals most families fall back on, towards truly varied meal plans from day to day, week to week, to the point where introducing your whole family to new flavours, colours and textures is a breeze because new is the norm. Each phase includes a clear explanation of what you're going to learn and achieve, clear advice/commentary, two weeks of delicious tried and tested recipes, and hands-on activities to try out with your family, all of which will help bring that phase to life and help you and your family to progress forward. The 5-phase approach: Phase 1: Unfamiliar into the familiar. Introducing unfamiliar colour, flavour or texture into familiar favourites. Phase 2: Educate. Experimenting with food, and understanding where it comes from and why it's important. Phase 3: Fun. Putting the fun back into food and building enthusiasm for food variety. Phase 4: Into the unknown. Discovering new ingredients and flavour combinations. Phase 5: Cementing variety. Learning techniques to keep your family meals varied long-term.

Tranquility Parenting: A Guide to Staying Calm, Mindful, and Engaged
Parenting is stressful. For many parents, who are always busy, usually tired, and probably not trained in dealing with children, the words tranquility and parenting do not go together. Don't you just wish there was some technique out there that could help you become calm, content, and confident parent? Something that you could have on hand all the time to help you through your most challenging situations and stressful days? Well, there is something, and it comes from a wisdom tradition that has been helping people through difficult situations for about 2300 years. The psychological techniques developed by ancient Stoics have recently been rediscovered, and Stoicism is enjoying a renaissance among people from all walks of life who are looking for fulfillment, tranquility, and yes, the meaning of life. Modern Stoicism has straightforward answers to all these questions, as well as practical techniques for achieving eudaimonia (the Greek word for human flourishing ). Stoicism encourages everyone to think things through for themselves and use their own capacity for reason and goodness. And once you learn the basic principles of Stoicism, you can apply them all the time, in any situation. Tranquility Parenting describes how Brittany Polat discovered modern Stoicism and what it can offer to stressed-out parents of the 21st century. As a mother of three young children, Polat used to constantly doubt her parenting abilities. She felt anxious, frustrated, and guilty about her perceived failings as a parent. Now, as a practicing Stoic, she gained the confidence and calm she was craving and has more energy to be fully engaged and happy with them. What will this book do for you? It will not tell you how to potty train your child, but it will tell you how to enjoy the time you spend potty training your child. It will not tell you how to monitor your teen on social media, but it will show you how to use practical wisdom to make decisions about media consumption. It will not tell you how to make your kids eat vegetables, but it will explain how to be present and engaged while you are teaching your kids to eat vegetables. So if you are willing to invest time and energy in applying Stoic insights, you may find that tranquility parenting is not only possible, but truly the best option for you and your family.

The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It
What is the boy crisis? It's a crisis of education. Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science. It's a crisis of mental health. ADHD is on the rise. And as boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women. It's a crisis of fathering. Boys are growing up with less-involved fathers and are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison. It's a crisis of purpose. Boys' old sense of purpose--being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner--are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a purpose void, feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification. So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policymakers can do to help our sons become happier, healthier men, and fathers and leaders worthy of our respect.

The Formula: Unlocking the Secrets to Raising Highly Successful Children
We all want our children to reach their fullest potential--to be smart and well adjusted, and to make a difference in the world. We wonder why, for some people, success seems to come so naturally. Could the secret be how they were parented? This book unveils how parenting helped shape some of the most fascinating people you will ever encounter, by doing things that almost any parent can do. You don't have to be wealthy or influential to ensure your child reaches their greatest potential. What you do need is commitment--and the strategies outlined in this book. In The Formula: Unlocking the Secrets to Raising Highly Successful Children, Harvard economist Ronald Ferguson, named in a New York Times profile as the foremost expert on the US educational achievement gap, along with award-winning journalist Tatsha Robertson, reveal an intriguing blueprint for helping children from all types of backgrounds become successful adults. Informed by hundreds of interviews, the book includes never-before-published insights from the How I was Parented Project at Harvard University, which draws on the varying life experiences of 120 Harvard students. Ferguson and Robertson have isolated a pattern with eight roles of the Master Parent that make up the Formula: the Early Learning Partner, the Flight Engineer, the Fixer, the Revealer, the Philosopher, the Model, the Negotiator, and the GPS Navigational Voice. The Formula combines the latest scientific research on child development, learning, and brain growth and illustrates with life stories of extraordinary individuals--from the Harvard-educated Ghanian entrepreneur who, as the young child of a rural doctor, was welcomed in his father's secretive late-night political meetings; to the nation's youngest state-wide elected official, whose hardworking father taught him math and science during grueling days on the family farm in Kentucky; to the DREAMer immigration lawyer whose low-wage mother pawned her wedding ring to buy her academically outstanding child a special flute. The Formula reveals strategies on how you--regardless of race, class, or background--can help your children become the best they can be and shows ways to maximize their chances for happy and purposeful lives.

This is a guide to help grown-ups share silliness, laughter and fun with kids, benefiting the kids, the adults themselves and, ultimately, society at large. In a world of technology, product marketing and unending messaging aimed at adults and kids, there is a need to liberate the imagination, re-sow the seeds of creativity ... and start a Real Play revolution!

Offering the techniques and play ideas developed by Ash Perrin through his work at the Flying Seagulls Project in an accessible, engaging and fun way to a wide audience of ordinary parents and childcare professionals, this book also makes a passionate case for the importance of play in children's lives.The Real Play Revolution is a treasure trove of fantastic, unexpected and effective play ideas, from step-by-step activities such as Kids Comedy Corner (all about telling jokes together as a family), Home-Made TV (make your own TV, then watch it!) and Circus Skills Workshop (hoola-hoop, juggling balls, spinning plates, etc) to quick fixes for cheering everyone up, such as the One Minute Madness Miracle (the first one to get nowhere wins), and defeating a bad mood - whether a child's or a grown-up's - with the Turkey Head Grump Crown (who can carrying on feeling annoyed with a turkey on their head?). All suggestions can be adapted to work with any numbers from one child to a whole classroom. Fun line drawings clarify step-by-steps and add to the book's appealing design.

The wickedly funny feminist historian who brought you Unmentionable: A Victorian Lady's Guide to Sex, Marriage, and Manners is back, to educate you on what to expect when you're expecting . . . a Victorian baby. Twenty-first century parents are drowning in theories and advice and guilt, with maybe one in a hundred managing some facade of success. What can we learn from our foremothers? Is it possible that the rather draconian methods of Victorian childrearing worked? Better than the ones we bend our backs to today? Ungovernable will address parents' concerns about raising a model Victorian child, advising you on: - How much lager to consume while pregnant - How to select the best peasant teat for your child - How to choose an appropriately homely governess - Which toys are most likely to turn your child into a sexual deviant - And more Consulting actual advice manuals from the 19th century, Oneill takes us on a shocking and hilarious tour through the backwards, pseudoscientific, downright bizarre childrearing fashions of the Victorians, giving us some much-needed perspective on contemporary parenting fads.

Raising Girls in the 21st Century: Helping Our Girls to Grow Up Wise, Strong and Free
Steve Biddulph's Raising Boys was a global phenomenon. The first book in a generation to look at boys' specific needs, parents loved its clarity and warm insights into their sons' inner world. But today, things have changed. It's girls that are in trouble. There has been a sudden and universal deterioration in girls' mental health, starting in primary school and devastating the teen years. Raising Girls in the 21st Century is both a guidebook and a call-to-arms for parents. The five key stages of girlhood are laid out so that you know exactly what matters at which age, and how to build strength and connectedness into your daughter from infancy onwards. Raising Girls in the 21st Century is both fierce and tender in its mission to help girls more at every age. It's a book for parents who love their daughters deeply, whether they are newborns, teenagers, young women - or anywhere in between. Feeling secure, becoming an explorer, getting along with others, finding her soul, and becoming a woman - at last, there is a clear map of girls' minds that accepts no limitations, narrow roles or selling-out of your daughter's potential or uniqueness. All the hazards are signposted - bullying, eating disorders, body image and depression, social media harms and helps - as are concrete and simple measures for both mums and dads to help prevent their daughters from becoming victims. Parenthood is restored to an exciting journey, not one worry after another, as it's so often portrayed. Steve talks to the world's leading voices on girls' needs and makes their ideas clear and simple, adding his own humour and experience through stories that you will never forget. Even the illustrations, by Kimio Kubo, provide unique and moving glimpses into the inner lives of girls. Along with his fellow psychologists worldwide, Steve is angry at the exploitation and harm being done to girls today. With Raising Girls in the 21st Century he strives to spark a movement to end the trashing of girlhood; equipping parents to deal with the modern world, and getting the media off the backs of our daughters. Raising Girls in the 21st Century is powerful, practical and positive. Your heart, head and hands will be strengthened by its message.

Elle Wright had an admittedly easy pregnancy, and in May 2016 she and her husband welcomed their son, Teddy, into the world. Just a few hours later, they woke to find him cold and unresponsive, and the happiest day of Elle's life had turned into every parent's worst nightmare. Three days after delivering him into the world, she sat with Teddy as he took his last breaths, and tucked him in for the final time. Ask Me His Name is a moving account of Elle's pregnancy, Teddy's life, and what happens when a mother leaves hospital with empty arms. In the UK, 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss, but conversations about the heartbreakingly frequent experience are few and far between. In this honest and hopeful exploration of mothering, Elle shows us how she navigated a parenthood no one had prepared her for. * A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Tommy's charity.

Lunch Box Letters: Writing Notes of Love and Encouragement to Your Children
'Sperandeo and Zimmerman make a good case for written communication with the young people in your life and how to act on it. It's advice that literary-minded parents will take to heart. - January Magazine. Today, children grow up in a fast-changing world while parents struggle to find ways to communicate with them and to show just how much they care. Lunch Box Letters, created by two parents who wrote notes to their children regularly and were greatly encouraged by the results, presents a proven method of staying in touch with children who, after all, just want to hear their parent's voice - to know that someone cares enough to write a few words for them to read in the middle of the day. The authors provide sample letters to show how simple these little notes are to write - and how important they are to both parent and child. The colourful notes can be put in lunch boxes or backpacks before school to be opened later in the day. They can be left under the pillow of a sleeping child, slipped under a bedroom door, given to celebrate a special occasion or even posted on the refrigerator door. They can also be written and mailed by grandparents, aunts and uncles and godparents. Lunch Box Letters contains 100 sheets of colourful notepaper, ready to tear out and use. Just add a few words and tuck the letter into the child's lunch box or backpack. With this book as a guide, it takes no time at all to write a letter. Yet the benefits will last a lifetime.

'This is the story of my journey into parenthood, from being a 24 year old man-child with no idea of what being a dad involved, to where I find myself today: the single male representative in a household of five women, or in other words, outnumbered. Our house is now known as the place where silence came to die . It's also where you'll find carpets that are made up of 50% glitter and where there are more pink stuffed animals than at a colour-blind taxidermy specialists. But I wouldn't change a thing. These people are my life.' From uninitiated parents-to-be to those who know the ropes in families large or small, everyone will find something to relate to in Simon's hilarious and chaotic tales of his own home life. His observations of being a father have delighted his hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram: before now dads are often the forgotten ones who carry the luggage, open stiff jars, take photos on holiday, fix broken bikes, go back to work, do the night feeds and make a mean beans on toast with melted cheese without so much as a pat on the back. All too often dads shrink into the background. But not in this book. Dadlife is an incredibly funny yet emotionally heartfelt ode to modern family life.

Happy Campers: 9 Summer Camp Secrets for Raising Kids Who Become Thriving Adults
Many of us live in suburban neighborhoods with nice yards, but without children in them often enough. We're out to dinner and notice a silent family, faces tilted toward their individual screens. Or maybe that family is us. In a social media culture, more than ever, the tried and true benefits of summer camp are being lauded for the value they've always held. Camp encourages real connection, grit, self-reflection, optimism, and self-confidence, and it does so without dependence upon technology. By implementing the proven principles of camp in our own homes, we can provide our kids with the tools they need to develop into thriving adults. Summer camp is attended by more than 12 million kids every year and research in positive psychology has proven that kids are just plain happier at camp. Happy Campers explores the reasons why, and offers parents nine secrets of summer camp that they can use to reap the benefits of camp for their children at home. Extra resources are included at the end of each chapter, such as questions for connection, family meeting topics, and activities to help families implement each summer camp strategy at home. Chapters include: Connection Comes First, Positive Practices Produce Optimistic Kids, Grit is Grown Outside the Comfort Zone, and Coach Kids to Better Friendships

The New Rules of Pregnancy: What to eat, do, think about, and let go of while your body is making a baby
Picture this: a calm, chill pregnancy book with the magical soothing powers of a yoga class. That's the approach of The New Rules of Pregnancy. Here the experts guide you, the modern pregnant woman, through all aspects of pregnant life in an easy-to-digest, compassionate, and motivating way. Instead of a detailed week-by-week look at your baby's development, it's all about you, and how to help your pregnancy go as smoothly as possible. It assumes an intelligent, busy reader (who, somewhere inside, is shouting, Just tell me what to do! ). Every aspect of pregnant life is covered - from the practical details (how to fly pregnant) to the complex issues ( What makes it postpartum depression? ). The book also covers that critical fourth trimester - Nursing and How to Feel Like Yourself Again - because once the baby is born, self-care typically goes out the window, and you really need someone to have your back. Its strong point of view and expertise come from gynecologist Adrienne Simone and obstetrician Jaqueline Worth - two renowned New York doctors dedicated to bringing patients the safest, calmest, least invasive pregnancies possible. The book's voice - motivating, supportive, real - comes from Danielle Claro, coauthor of The New Health Rules.

The Baby Loss Guide: Practical and compassionate support with a day-by-day resource to navigate the path of grief
Written by one of the world's leading baby loss support experts, The Baby Loss Guide is designed to help you navigate this complex issue. Whether you have personally encountered loss, or are supporting people through this harrowing time, this book provides practical and compassionate advice. Zoe and her husband Andy have personally faced the loss of five babies. Out of their experiences came the charity The Mariposa Trust (more often known by its primary division Saying Goodbye), offering support to thousands of grieving parents and relatives around the world each week. In her first bestselling book Saying Goodbye Zoe wrote a moving account of their experiences and how they found a way through loss. In The Baby Loss Guide Zoe provides a supportive and practical guide to walk people through their darkest days of suffering and gives them hope for the future. The first half of the book answers the many questions those who encounter loss ask themselves and others, and until now have resulted in people spending hours exploring the internet to gain answers and insight. It is interlaced with personal stories from both men and women who have been there, and tackles the many myths, taboos and assumptions around loss. It also provides clear guidance and advice on how to navigate life following your world imploding, such as: How do I return to work? How do I know if or when I should try again for more children? How do I communicate with my partner about loss? The second half of the book offers 60-days of practical and compassionate support. Whether someone's loss be recent or historic, this support will be a wonderful gift, and will help the person walk the scary path of grief. Zoe's friendly and down to earth approach means she removes the often over used medical terminology, and this makes The Baby Loss Guide readable, easy to absorb and a vital source of information and help.

The Home Education Handbook: A comprehensive and practical guide to educating children at home
'Home-educators want to provide a high quality learning experience for their children and this handbook is an excellent resource for making this aspiration a reality' - Dr Adam Boddison, Chief Executive of National Association of Special Educational Needs If you are thinking of home educating your child, your initial surprise may be at how easy it is to turn intention into reality. Once you have deregistered your child, you are largely left to get on with delivering education from home, as you see best. This book is full of practical guidance for parents, based on the authors' long experience of working with children and young people; their parents, teachers and schools. It will help you plan what is taught, as well as when and how. The authors not only consider how to benefit from the opportunities home education provides, but also suggest creative ways to fill the potential gaps that might arise from not being part of the traditional school system. The Home Education Handbook covers everything from the socialisation of home-educated children to advice on supporting the motivation and resilience of all involved. This is a book that every parent who is considering home education or flexi-schooling, or is simply keen to ensure that their child gets the best education possible, needs to read.
