Around the globe, the very conceptualization of family is associated with the relationship between a parent and a child.

This volume will contain research on parenthood and parenting from around the world, and is intended to provide a more global perspective of these issues. Given that these topics range across various disciplines, a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches are utilized in the research herein.

Stretch Marks: A Self-Development Tool for Mothers Who are Being Stretched in Every Direction
Stretch Marks helps mothers by inspiring, entertaining, and laying out how to create more time, more peace, and more joy in their lives. Women seek time, peace, happiness, and fulfillment but often cannot find it because they don't think it's possible, don't believe they deserve it, or don't know how to make it happen. Emerging from the other-focused world of raising young children, now struggling to figure out what they want to do and how they can actually make it happen, mothers are busier, more stressed, and less healthy than ever and many are seeking realistic answers they can implement into their frenetic lives. What makes these women miserable on the inside when it looks like they have everything they've always wanted on the outside? It is often the disconnect between what is truly most important to them, and how they use their time, resources and energy. Stretch Marks serve as emotional, visual, and psychological metaphors representing growth and pushing past one's limits. Amber Trueblood addresses the challenges mothers face in a funny, entertaining, supportive, and judgement-free environment. Using The A.M.B.E.R. Mindsets, readers learn the tricks and tools necessary to stop living the life they are told they should be living, and start living freely.

Everywhere Holy: Seeing Beauty, Remembering Your Identity, and Finding God Right Where You Are
Popular writer and blogger Kara Lawler shows women how to embrace the sacred in the everyday so that they can see the holy and the beautiful--and in the process, discover themselves. Life doesn't have to be lived on grand mountaintops for it to be meaningful. We can find holiness in the small, moss-covered rocks along the paths of our everyday lives. We can see God at work right where we are: in our ordinary routines, in the faces of our family and friends, and--especially--in nature. In Everywhere Holy, Kara Lawler speaks to the hearts of those who find themselves stumbling and faltering and, sometimes, even falling, face down, in the midst of their chaotic schedules and weary attempts to be all that is expected of them. It's for everyone who longs for more connection with the sacred, for the gratefulness, peace, and blessings that holiness brings, and for the reminder that our identities are grounded in the beauty around us. It's an invitation to view life as an adventure, to consider simple observation a form of prayer, and to embrace noticing beauty as a spiritual practice. In beautiful prose, Lawler describes the unique sacredness found in God's creation and offers sixteen inspiring insights for cultivating it day-to-day. She encourages readers to make this lifestyle change through the observance of small acts. In so doing, they will discover a holy space that honors God and the lives they've been given-and will discover themselves and their unique place in the holy that is everywhere.

Lipsticks applied, novels read, imperfect cakes baked-such memories are recalled with crystalline perfection (J. C. Hallmann, Brooklyn Rail) in Sarah McColl's breathtaking testimonial to the joy and pain of loving well. When her mother, Allison, was diagnosed with cancer, McColl dropped everything-including her on- the-rocks marriage-to return to the family farmhouse and fix elaborate meals in the hope of nourishing her back to health. In thoughtful and finely crafted prose (Martha Anne Toll, NPR .org) McColl reveals Allison to be an extraordinary woman of infinite love for her unruly brood of children. Mining her dual losses with humor and charm (Rachel Kong, New York Times Book Review) to confront her identity as a woman, McColl walks lightly in the footsteps of the woman who came before her. A gorgeous, painful, exhilarating debut (Kirstin Valdez- Quade), Joy Enough is an essential guide to clinging fast to the joy left behind, for readers of Ann Hood and Jenny Offill.

Sleep Wrecked Kids: Helping Parents Raise Happy, Healthy Kids, One Sleep at a Time
Kids often suffer unknowingly from the consequences of sleep problems because their issue is frequently missed or dismissed, by both health professionals and parents. Sleep disorders are a major public health issue that can kick start a lifetime pattern of health, behaviour, and learning problems. From ages 4-10, at least 25 percent of kids have sleep problems. Sleep Wrecked Kids guides parents towards good sleep as the norm, allowing themselves and their children to grow and thrive. Speech pathologist and myofunctional practitioner Sharon Moore teaches parents why `bad sleep' is connected to a myriad of health problems, what `good sleep' actually means, how to identify red flags for sleep problems, how to improve sleep quality by improving airway health, and so much more! Parents are empowered to not only get more sleep themselves, but also to help their children get the sleep they need-every night.

Grandmothering: Building Strong Ties with Every Generation
Contemporary grandmothers are often marginalized from extended family life because social institutions and grandmothers themselves do not understand that they could be vital for working parents, for overactive children, for suicidal youth, indeed for many of the problems of modern grandchildren. The genetics and hormones of older women have designed them to be vital family members, with patience and perspective that come with age and experience. In addition, biology helps directly via menopause. The grandmother hypothesis explains that human women, unlike almost any other living creature, experience decades of life after menopause, in order to make grandmothers available to their descendants. Here, Kathleen Berger explores he role of grandmothers in the lives of their grandchildren. She uses real life examples to illustrate how grandmothers can best integrate themselves into the lives of their children's families without overstepping. She explores the particular needs of each stage of childhood as they relate to grandmother involvement and input. Before a child is born, grandmothers need to attend to building a strong relationship with the future parents. In infancy, attachment and feeding are crucial. In early childhood, grandmothers need to follow the parent's lead, remembering that a parental alliance is essential. In childhood, children need to be safe but not isolated, and both bullies and victims benefit from a grandmother's support and assistance. In adolescence and emerging adulthood, grandmothers need to build direct connections and not avoid the difficult topics of sex, drugs, death, disease, and money. Throughout, elders need to learn technology, insuring that it fosters, not impedes relationships. Problems in relationships are explained honestly and with insight. Among these are issues when three generations share a home, when parents get divorced, and when grandchildren rebel against parental authority. Throughout the work, both the joy and the complications of effective grandmothering are described. Whether you're a biological grandmother, a trusted step-grandmother, or just a warm and trusted older woman with young ones in your life, you can be a vital force in the lives of future generations.

The Single Mother's Diary: 10 Women Who Have Defied the Odds of One Parent Homes
In the UK, there are more than 1.7 million single mothers while in the US, more than 15 million women are parenting children on their own. This book by 10 single mothers shares a universal and empowering message: You are not alone, single momsaand your wisdom, strength, courage, sacrifices and selfless love are worthy of celebration. The world tells single mothers that they are destined for poverty, sacrifices, a single life and being broke at retirement. Sometimes the narrative gets even deeper as many voices in our culture imply that children from single parent homes will often amount to very little, if anything at all. Too often these moms who do it all have been misrepresented and maligned. Dr. Ava Brown has gathered 10 women: Joan Davis-Williams, Christianah Agbabiaka, Ava Payne, Marva Rollins, Andreen Cephas, Anneth Bryan, Mary Wanjiku, Natasha Gordon, Eveana Shacara Henry and herself, who share their real-life stories, their resilience and setbacks, hopes and fears, their embarrassments and triumphs. This book was written to shift that trajectory, however, and rewrite that story... just like millions of women who can torpedo this narrative by creating their own version of what a single mother life could and can be. This book doesn't negate from the fact that most single mothers would have preferred a different path, yet in our individual cases we all played the hand we were given. Please note, this book is not a father-bashing book, this is far from it. Rather it is a book where lessons learned are shared to help other single mothers navigate what can be a very lonely path.

Opting Back In: What Really Happens When Mothers Go Back to Work
Taking a career break is a conflicted and risky decision for high-achieving professional women. Yet many do so, usually planning, even as they quit, to return to work eventually. But can they? And if so, how? In Opting Back In, Pamela Stone and Meg Lovejoy revisit women first interviewed a decade earlier in Stone's book Opting Out? Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home to answer these questions. In frank and intimate accounts, women lay bare the dilemmas they face upon reentry. Most succeed but not by returning to their former high-paying, still family-inhospitable jobs. Instead, women strike out in new directions, finding personally gratifying but lower-paid jobs in the gig economy or predominantly female nonprofit sector. Opting Back In uncovers a paradox of privilege by which the very women best positioned to achieve leadership and close gender gaps use strategies to resume their careers that inadvertently reinforce gender inequality. The authors advocate gender equitable policies that will allow women-and all parents-to combine the intense demands of work and family life in the twenty-first century.

You Are a F*cking Awesome Mom: So Embrace the Chaos, Get Over the Guilt, and Be True to You
To anyone who is not a new mother, babyhood may seem like a nanosecond long--a quick blip on the radar of life. But to a new mother, it feels never-ending. A child is born, a thunderstorm comes barreling in, and the idea of buckling down to raise said baby seems like an eternity--and feels totally impossible. How will I ever make it through? This is especially true for women today, who are raised to foster strong personal and professional identities. Becoming a mother is a complete restructuring of one's life, and there's a necessary psychic reckoning that gets buried under dirty diapers and lost amid the nipple shields and mashed peas. Loaded with unfettered support from a mom who has been through it, You Are a F*cking Awesome Mom offers a welcome acknowledgement that motherhood is a mind f*ck--and that women deserve more than trite oversimplifying and sugarcoating about the miracles of child-rearing. It is not a parenting book, it's a mama book, one with an irresistible, irreverent voice, sharp insight, and some welcome doses of truth salad, plus a few experts thrown in for good measure. It's You Are a Badass for new mothers, and a long-awaited life raft for all the mothers drowning in maternal confusion and terror.

Small Animals: Parenthood in the Age of Fear
One cool spring morning, Kim Brooks made a split-second decision to leave her four-year-old son in the car while she ran into a store. What happened would consume the next several years of her life and ultimately motivated her to begin writing about the broader subject of parenthood and fear. In Small Animals, Brooks asks, Of all the emotions inherent in parenting, is there any more universal or profound than fear? To be a parent is to be afraid. And yet, the objects and intensity of our fear vary based on culture, temperament, and the historical moment in which we live. In the signature style - by turns funny, penetrating, and always illuminating - that has dazzled millions of fans of the essays she publishes in New York Magazine, LennyLetter, Salon, and Buzzfeed, Brooks blends personal memoir, investigative reporting and sociological critique to ask: Why have our notions of what it means to be a good parent changed so radically in the course of a generation? In what ways do these changes impact the lives of parents, children, and the structure of society at large? And what, in the end, does the rise of fearful parenting tell us about our children, our communities, and ourselves? By telling her own story and probing our culture at large, Brooks offers a provocative, compelling portrait of parenthood in American and calls us to examine what we most value in our relationships with our children and one another.

The Mother of All Jobs
Have you ever looked at the lengthy school holiday dates and silently screamed in desperation? Have you gone part time yet are still doing a full-time workload? Have you ever been too afraid to ask about maternity benefits or flexible working? Do you constantly feel guilty about missing school events and secretly envious of other mums at the school gates who seem to be doing it all better than you? If any (or all) of the above rings true for you, you are NOT alone. While the demands of work are increasing with longer working hours and more pressure to remain 'switched on' to our phones and computers, the needs of our children and the world of school and childcare have stayed the same. Something has got to change before we all reach breaking point. The Mother of All Jobs brings together the wisdom of women who opened up about their experiences into a manifesto to help working parents thrive.

Conceiving Family: A Practical Theology of Surrogacy and Self
Biology continues to be the most widely recognised determinant of family in the United States and heterosexual intercourse the most common form of family creation. But what happens when children cannot be created in this way? Is it still possible to create a family? Surrogacy provides an alternative means of conception, not only to heterosexual couples who encounter infertility or reproductive loss, but also to single, same-sex, or transgender individuals who want to have children. However, surrogacy itself raises a number of concerns, arguably introducing as many difficulties as it solves. Danielle Tumminio Hansen tackles the unnamed and unexamined problems surrounding surrogacy within a theological framework. Tumminio Hansen begins by investigating the primacy of the biological family and the profound influence it has had on how infertility and reproductive loss have been understood culturally. By using the United States, Israel, and India as case studies, Tumminio Hansen profiles the cultural constructions of surrogacy and the complications surrounding it in places where the biological family is considered the norm. Through a theological lens, Conceiving Family analyzes what is at stake for the self, family, and society in surrogacy; through a close reading of the Bible it proposes that surrogacy is only as healthy for the individual as society's views allow. Tumminio Hansen shows how a cultural misconception of surrogacy isolates the parents, surrogates, and children involved through self-alienation, community alienation, and divine-human alienation. She concludes that surrogates and intended parents must therefore construct their relationships in terms of social belonging, and that this process affords human dignity to those involved by expanding community beyond the simple science of biological connection. In the book Tumminio Hansen ultimately reclaims surrogacy as an act that exists both within and beyond the reproductive realm, concluding that surrogacy has the potential to transform the identities of parenthood and community, re-conceiving family in the process.

Understanding Teenage Anxiety: A Parent's Guide to Improving Your Teen's Mental Health
Anxiety is the most common mental-health disorder in the United States, affecting nearly one-third of both adolescents -New York Times If you're the parent of a teenager experiencing chronic anxiety, you are not alone, and this book can help you. Today's teens are high-strung and socially overextended. We shrug it off as a millennial problem, but is it? In a world that encourages the quick fix, instant gratification, and real-time feedback, can we really expect our children to cope as we did less than two decades ago, in the land of handshakes, eye contact, elbow grease, and grit? This book is a product of a combination of three very different perspectives: those of the anxious teen, the parent, and the therapist. We need to understand what we've created in terms of our current society to gain proper insight on why we're seeing increasingly rising levels of anxiety in our teenagers. Topics include: Physical and Emotional Symptoms of Anxiety Teens and Self-Harm Anxiety and Gut Health Sports: Concussions and Anxiety Natural Ways to Help Your Teen Cope And much, much more Within each chapter, author (and parent) Jennifer Browne and co-author (Jennifer's teenage son) Cody Buchanan, who struggles with anxiety and depression, will weigh in on what this affliction feels like, physically, mentally, and emotionally. They share personal experiences to help parents better understand their teens and learn a lot along the way.
