THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'Emily Oster is the non-judgemental girlfriend holding our hand and guiding us through pregnancy and motherhood. She has done the work to get us the hard facts in a soft, understandable way' Amy Schumer Parenting is full of decisions, nearly all of which can be agonized over. There is an abundance of often-conflicting advice hurled at you from doctors, family, friends, and strangers on the internet. But the benefits of these choices can be overstated, and the trade-offs can be profound. How do you make your own best decision? Armed with the data, Oster finds that the conventional wisdom doesn't always hold up. She debunks myths and offers non-judgemental ways to consider our options in light of the facts. Cribsheet is a thinking parent's guide that empowers us to make better, less fraught decisions - and stay sane in the years before preschool.

The Real Play Revolution: Why We Need to Be Silly with Our Kids - and How to Do It
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! Real Play needs no expertise or qualifications and no equipment beyond what can be found about the house - all it does need is a genuine interaction between grown-ups and children. 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.

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.

Thompson captures the ache, fizz, yearning and frustration of being the father of adolescent boys. --Michael Chabon What a riveting, touching, and painful read! --Maria Semple Fun, moving, raw, and relatable. --Tony Hawk What makes a good father, and what makes one a failure? Does less-is-more parenting inspire independence and strength, or does it encourage defiance and trouble? Kickflip Boys is the story of a father's struggle to understand his willful skateboarder sons, challengers of authority and convention, to accept his role as a vulnerable skate dad, and to confront his fears that the boys are destined for an unconventional and potentially fraught future. With searing honesty, Neal Thompson traces his sons' progression through all the stages of skateboarding: splurging on skate shoes and boards, having run-ins with security guards, skipping classes and defying teachers, painting graffiti, drinking and smoking, and more. As the story veers from funny to treacherous and back, from skateparks to the streets, Thompson must confront his complicity and fallibility. He also reflects on his upbringing in rural New Jersey, and his own adventures with skateboards, drugs, danger, and defiance. A story of thrill-seeking teens, of hope and love, freedom and failure, Kickflip Boys reveals a sport and a community that have become a refuge for adolescent boys who don't fit in. Ultimately, it's the survival story of a loving modern American family, of acceptance, forgiveness, and letting go.

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.

A Sentimental Gift to Capture All of Dad's Wisdom and Precious Memories It's time to truly hear Dad's whole story-here, following carefully curated questions to delve into vivid details, fathers everywhere are invited to recount the beliefs, traditions, and treasured moments that have made them who they are today. Beginning with Dad's own childhood and teenage years, to his life before children, and of course his journey through fatherhood, writing coach Jennifer Basye Sander has developed this guided journal with great attention to detail so no memory is forgotten. From simple questions such as What was your favorite family vacation as a child? to more thought-provoking ones such as What do you think happens to us after we die? this will encourage Dad to roam far and wide inside his own memories for rich stories to share, life lessons that were learned, and beliefs that grew over time. Sander's questions and prompts invite dads to tell their children, and generations to come, all about their childhood and teenage years; their educations, relationships, and marriages; their careers, religious experiences, and involvement in their communities; their beliefs, values, and opinions; and much more. This book is a special place for dads of any age to record the most significant reflections and remembrances of their lives-it is sure to be a treasured keepsake for children and grandchildren for many years to come, and a gift any father will cherish.

Raising Empowered Daughters: A Dad-to-Dad Guide
Stay-at-home dad and journalist Mike Adamick jumps into the feminist-parenting fray with a book designed to help dads understand the dynamics behind sexist micro-messages our daughters experience every day, so they can combat them in daily life. Addressing a wide range of challenges facing dads who want to raise empowered girls, Raising Empowered Daughterscovers all the angles and issues dads need to know so they can better understand society's subtle silencing of girls, and their own role in the gender imbalance that kids all experience. Taking readers into the home, the schools, and through the public influences of pop culture and media, Adamick shows dads exactly where their daughters are being undermined by male-dominated traditions and standards. Armed with this awareness, he gives dads practical actions they can take to infuse their daughters with the confidence and role models they need to avoid the traps of patriarchy.

Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler: Tackling These Crazy Awesome Years-No Time-outs Needed
Real-world, from-the-trenches toddler parenting advice from the author of the bestselling Oh Crap! Potty Training. Toddlers-commonly defined as children aged between two and five years old-can be a horribly misunderstood bunch. What most parents view as bad behavior is in fact just curious behavior. Toddlerdom is the age of individuation, seeking control, and above all, learning how the world works. But this misunderstanding between parents and child can lead to power struggles, tantrums, and even diminished growth and creativity. The recent push of early intellectualism coupled with a desire to make childhood magical has created a strange paradox-we have three-year-olds with math and Mandarin tutors who don't know how to dress themselves and are sitting in their own poop. We are pushing the toddler mind beyond its limit but simultaneously keeping them far below their own natural capabilities. In the frank, funny, and totally authentic Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler, social worker Jamie Glowacki helps parents work through what she considers the five essential components of raising toddlers: -Engaging the toddler mind -Working with the toddler body -Understanding and dealing with the toddler behavior -Creating a good toddler environment -You, the parent Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler is about doing more with less-and bringing real childhood back from the brink of over-scheduled, over-stimulated, helicopter parenting. With her signature down-and-dirty, friend-to-friend advice, Jamie is here to help you experience the joy of parenting again and giving your child-and yourself-the freedom to let them grow at their own pace and become who they are.

Parenting in the Zombie Apocalypse: The Psychology of Raising Children in a Time of Horror
Parenting is difficult under the best of circumstances-but profoundly daunting when humanity faces cataclysmic annihilation. When the dead rise, hardship, violence, trauma and the ever-present threat of flesh-eating zombies will adversely affect the well-being of parents and kids alike. Under such untenable conditions, will it be possible to raise children to thrive? Depending on their age, children will have little to no chance of surviving a single encounter with the undead, let alone the unending peril of the Zombie Apocalypse. The key to their survival-and thus the survival of the species-will be the caregiving they receive. Applying psychological theory and real-world research, this book critically examines the likely outcomes of different parenting styles in the hypothetical landscape of the living dead.

- The first doctor-written guide to becoming a dad - Combines the medical knowledge of a healthcare professional with real-life experience - Step-by-step - from conception to caring for your newborn baby - Honest, humorous and engaging, this book answers the questions you've been too afraid to ask At this crucial life-moment, knowledge is power, but you probably know less than you think: What's a cervix? Can we still have sex? Why's the midwife doing that? How do I make up a bottle and is that poo normal? Dad's role is more important than you might ever have imagined, so what can you do to help? 'I hope that as a doctor and a new dad, I will go some way towards answering those man questions that never quite make it to the pub, locker-room, water cooler or any other locations where men might find themselves having meaningful chats with another guy. Think of this as a papery man hug in what is a potentially treacherous world of terminology, hormones, social change, sleep deprivation and finally dirty nappies with tiny feet attached.'

What We're Teaching Our Sons
Wise and funny, touching and true, What We're Teaching Our Sons is for anyone who has ever wondered how to be a grown up. We're teaching our sons about money; about heartbreak, and mountains, and philosophy. We're teaching them about the big bang and the abominable snowman and what happens when you get struck by lightning. We're teaching them about the toughness of single mothers, and the importance of having friends who've known you longer than you've known yourself, and the difference between zombies and vampires. We're teaching them about sex, although everyone would be a lot happier if the subject had never come up... Meet the married Dads, the divorced Dads, the widowed Dads and the gay Dads; the gamblers, the firemen, the bankers, the nurses, the soldiers and the milkmen. They're trying to guide their sons through the foothills of childhood into the bewildering uplands of adulthood. But it's hard to know if they're doing it right. Or what their sons' mothers think... Wise and funny, touching and true, What We're Teaching Our Sons is for anyone who has ever wondered how to be a grown up.
