13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don't Do: Raising Self-Assured Children and Training Their Brains for a Life of Happiness, Meaning, and Success

Do today's children lack the flexibility and mental strength they need to cope with life's challenges in an increasingly complicated and scary world? With safe spaces and trigger warnings designed to "protect" kids, many adults worry that children don't have the resilience to reach their greatest potential. Amy Morin, the author who identified the characteristics that mentally strong people share, now gives adults--parents, teachers, and other mentors--the tools they need to become mental strength trainers. While other books tell parents what to do, Amy teaches parents what "not to do," which she says is equally important in raising mentally strong youngsters.

As a foster parent, psychotherapist, and expert in family and teen therapy, Amy has witnessed first-hand what works. When children have the skills they need to deal with challenges in their everyday lives, they can flourish socially, emotionally, behaviorally, and academically. With appropriate support, encouragement, and guidance from adults, kids grow stronger and become better. Drawing on her experiences and insight, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don't Do combines case studies, practical tips, specific strategies, and concrete and proven exercises to help children of all ages--from preschoolers to teenagers--build mental muscle and develop into healthy, strong adults.

Say No to Placenta Pics: And Other Uproarious Unsolicited Advice for Pregnant Women
Written by two best friends, the book is a product of real girl talk between BFFs about the truths of pregnancy, as seen from a mom who went through it and her best friend who observed from the sidelines. It conveys a sense of female camaraderie over an exclusively female topic and reclaims it above the myriad of how-to, self-help maternity guides out there. This book is for moms and non-moms-all women-in the vein of The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy (2007, half a million copies sold). In line with strong media messages about body positivity and women's rights, this book champions the pregnant woman-and how it's okay to show (and laugh at) the dirtier, but just as real, side of pregnancy. The ideal book for the mom-to-be who wants a light-hearted, empathetic beachside read away from her stresses A great baby shower gift from one woman to another, with possible book club potential, especially for gatherings of new moms or moms-to-be

From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars
Virginia Grohl, mother of Dave Grohl, had not seen any of it coming. Not the arenas of screaming fans, not Nirvana or the Foo Fighters, not the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and certainly not her son, Dave, performing with Sir Paul McCartney at The White House. Theirs had always been a life full of music - the Grohl family sang together on long car trips, harmonising to Motown and David Bowie - yet Virginia never expected her son to become a musician. But when Virginia saw Nirvana play for the first time to crazed applause from thousands of screaming fans, she knew nothing would ever be the same. She was the mother of a rock star.And as Virginia watched her son's star rise, she often wondered about the other mothers who raised sons and daughters who became rock stars. Were they as surprised as she was about their children's fame? Virginia often wondered about the mystical force that urges some of us to listen, to play, to surround ourselves with music. She wanted to talk about it with the other mothers whose sons and daughters were sharing stages with Dave, and she decided to seek them out wherever they were. So began a two-year odyssey, where she had conversations with such women from all over the world as Verna Griffin, Dr Dre's mother, Carolyn Williams, Pharell William's mother, Janis Winehouse, Amy Winehouse's mother, Patsy Noah, Adam Levine's mother, Donna Haim, mother to the Haim sisters and Hester Diamond, Mike D of The Beastie Boys' mother, to name just a few. From Cradle to Stage will appeal to mothers everywhere, but particularly to those with children who march (or play) to the beat of their own drum; and it's for those children who have their mothers to thank for everything. For music lovers and rock fans, it's the ultimate backstage pass-for anyone who has wondered what it's like to be on the inside...looking out at a packed arena. Featuring a foreword by Dave Grohl and exclusive family photographs, interviews are interwoven with the Grohl family story and the resultant book is a very intimate portrait of what makes a rock star.

I Can't Believe You Just Said That!: Biblical Wisdom for Taming Your Child's Tongue
The bestselling author of Don't Make Me Count to Three! lays out a simple, Bible-based plan that shows parents how to help their kids tame their tongues and walk in the transforming power of Christ. Are you ever embarrassed or shocked by what comes out of your child's mouth? Do you raise your voice, threaten, and coerce, but find yourself frustrated because nothing seems to work? In I Can't Believe You Just Said That!, Ginger Hubbard provides a practical, three-step plan to reach beyond the behaviors of tongue-related struggles-such as lying, tattling, and whining-to address your child's heart. After all, as Matthew 12:34 tells us, the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. By moving past the idea that parenting is about rigid rule-setting or behavior management, we can set aside ineffective practices such as scolding, ignoring the offense, or merely administering punishment. Instead, we start to see that our children's outbursts are prime opportunities for the ultimate goal of all parenting: to guide them to the redemptive work of Jesus and his transformational power.

Nodding Off: The Science of Sleep from Cradle to Grave
Sleep plays a crucial role in our waking lives, and we need to start paying it more attention. The latest research tells us that it's essential for learning and memory, for mental health and physical well-being, and yet we tend to only think about it when it's proving a struggle. Nodding Off leads you on a fascinating journey through the science of sleep as it evolves throughout our lives; from babies to teenagers, from middle age to the later years of our life, there are constantly new challenges to our sleep. Based on knowledge accumulated over almost two decades as a sleep researcher, Professor Alice Gregory shares real-life stories and interviews with other sleep experts to find the answers to questions, such as: Why do so many adolescents enjoy lying in at the weekends? Why do children experiencing anxiety, behavioural problems or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder so often have co-occurring sleep problems? Why are scientists turning to sleep disorders such as sleep paralysis to try to understand paranormal experiences? With important tips on improving your sleep, Nodding Off is an essential read for anyone who sleeps, and more important still for those who don't get enough. Fans of Matthew Walker's Why We Sleep will love this book!

Dad You Suck: And other things my children tell me

Written with self-excoriating candour and the driest humour, comes a book about being a dad from one of our best loved journalists. For Tim Dowling, fatherhood has sometimes felt like two decades of lessons learned through failure. 1. Don't give your children sugary drinks and expect them to be as sweet. You could end up with a chopstick in your earhole. 2. There is no reason holidays should be thought of as relaxing. Consider them an opportunity to be shrieked at in different climates. 3. `Let's not tell mum about this' is not legally binding. It never has been. You're only trying to make yourself feel better. Drawing on what actually feels like two lifetimes of experience, Dad You Suck is a hilarious account of the joy of fatherhood, and the subtle art of transforming your children's insults into a reason for being.

The Role of Somali Parents in their Children's Education
In this book, author Nuur Hassan explains firstly how Somali parents of secondary school-aged pupils are involved in their children's education. Secondly, he identifies strategies that parents adopt when supporting their children. Finally he examines the nature of their relationship with schools. In doing so, the book contributes towards the design of a suitable Somali-centred parental involvement model, which accurately accounts for how Somali parents are/or like to be involved in their children's education. The identification of involvement behaviours of Somali parents will initially assist schools and policy-makers in designing effective home-school engagement programmes that address the educational needs of Somali children. Additionally it will help Somali parents practice and link key involvement behaviours that are essential for the educational attainments of their children.

This book sorts through the conflicting advice and includes practical, easy-to-follow guidance on what and how to feed your baby in those all-important first thousand days - from pregnancy to their second birthday.

Devotions for Sacred Parenting
Raising children is a sacred calling-and not for the faint of heart. It shapes the parent every bit as much as parents shape their children. In Devotions for Sacred Parenting, Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Parenting, delves deeper into the conversation and contemplates the soul-transforming journey of being a parent. Many books have been written about how to parent your children effectively, how to become a better parent, and how effective parenting produces better kids. Devotions for Sacred Parenting explores an entirely different reality: how parenting transforms you, the parent. It explores the spiritual dynamics of parenting and why caring for your children is such an effective discipline in shaping your soul and forming the character of Christ within you. With all new material, 52 devotions explore the spiritual dynamics of parenting. These life-related devotions are creative, fresh, and encouraging, inspiring mothers and fathers to look at parenting from a different perspective-as a holy and high calling from God, and as an opportunity to grow spiritually as you strive to raise godly children. Devotions for Sacred Parenting helps you understand how God is parenting you as you parent your children.

Raising Boys In The 21St Century: Completely Updated And Revised

A word of mouth bestseller which has become one of the best loved and most successful books in the parenting field. With around 20% new material, Steve Biddulph’s Raising Boys is to be re-released this month with some startling new research on what helps – and what harms – boys.

In this expanded and updated edition, Steve Biddulph shares and gives practical and honest advice to parents so they can recognise the different stages of boyhood and learn how to raise happy, confident and kind young men.

Boys need to be parented in a different way from girls with their own very special psychological and physical make-up. Home, society and education have failed boys badly – and these failures lead to unhappy men who cannot fully become happy, responsible, emotionally-confident adults.

While it is essential that boys spend more time learning about manhood from their fathers, Biddulph updates his classic to include helpful information for mothers and single mothers with baby boys.

This extended edition explores some important topics:
.
• How ADHD may be caused by stress in the first year of life.
• Whether boys should start school later than girls.
• How important it is to let boys cry, and how crying helps avoid violence, suicide, and risky behaviour.
• Two completely new stages of boyhood we didn’t know about: the FULL ON FOURS and the EMOTIONAL EIGHTS
• Help for single mothers raising sons.
• How to choose a sport that does more good than harm.
• What we can do about boys and binge drinking.
• What science can tell us about teenage boys and driving – and how we can keep our sons safe.

Raising Boys offers parents real-life situations, thought-provoking insights, humour and help.

Written by Jessie Hewitson, an award-winning journalist at The Times, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on: * What to do if you think your child is autistic * How to understand and support your child at school and at home * Mental health and autism * The differences between autistic girls and boys 'Jessie Hewitson has really hit the mark with this book, giving our history, our diversity, our challenges and our hopes. Autistic people and their families are finally represented' Carrie Grant 'Exceptionally useful and informative' Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCL

Parenting with Values: 12 Essential Qualities Your Children Need and How to Teach Them
What do we, as parents, need to give our children to ensure they grow up to be happy, well-balanced and resilient people? Parenting tutor and mother of two Christiane Kutik tells us that, above all, children need their parents to give them strong values to help them find their way in life. Many of us consider values to be an old-fashioned concept but Kutik suggests that by fostering twelve vital values, parents can provide their children with all the tools they need to flourish, to discover the worth of non-material rewards and to have an emotionally enriching life. Parenting with Values encourages parents to reflect on which values they want to pass on to their children. In twelve short, easy-to-digest chapters, Kutik discusses the essential qualities that children need, and explains how each one is learned and passed on from parent to child. The twelve essential values Kutik identifies are: -- Self-esteem -- Compassion -- Honesty -- Respect -- Sensibility -- Humour -- Security -- Capacity to manage conflict -- Independence -- Interest in e world -- Soulfulness -- Connection the natural world This engaging and readable book is filled with practical everyday examples of values in action. It will provide inspiration for parents who wish to proactively encourage positive development in their children.

The 50 Things: Lessons for When You Feel Lost, Love Dad
Praise for The 50 Things: This book is that rare thing: a non-preachy and super-helpful guide. Every page made me smile and some laugh aloud. Eoin Colfer, bestselling author of Artemis Fowl Humane, funny and above all loving. I wish I'd written it to my children. Fiona Bruce This is a book for the ages. As you read it, you think why didn't somebody do this a long time ago? Every father should have it and every child should read it. Jim Sheridan Few exude the love warmth, humour, humility, and insightfulness we all aspire to, as naturally and generously as Peter Dunne and I can't recommend the soul-warming experience of reading his wonderful blog-born, hence uncontrived, book highly enough. Stephen Russell, aka The Barefoot Doctor As his 50th birthday dawned, Peter Dunne had a life-changing conversation with a friend and realised that, while he may not have invented the internet or found a cure for cancer, he had nonetheless fathered three remarkable and beautiful children. Inspired by that fact, he set out to leave a trail of metaphorical breadcrumbs for them, so that if they ever needed to know what their father might have had to say on a particular subject, it would be set down for them. The result is a book of letters from a father to his children, and though the stories are firmly set in a place and time, the themes and the tone are universal and timeless. From Compromise to Compassion, from Democracy to Sacrifice, THE 50 THINGS explores the social mores and morality of our time and tries to answer the eternal questions that line the path to peace of mind.

**THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER** 'The night before Charlie was born I had this dream.

Above all, Dummy will keep you laughing through the exhaustion, the mystery and the madness of bringing up your own children. This is the parenting book for real people.

Happy Mum, Happy Baby: My Adventures into Motherhood
A positive and uplifting book about what it is to be a mother and all things mum and baby by Celebrity Mum of the Year and phenomenally popular vlogger, author, TV presenter and actress Giovanna Fletcher.Being a mum is an incredible journey, a remarkable experience that changes how we look, how we feel, who we are. As mothers we are strong, protective, proud. We feel a love like no other.But being a parent can be hard too. It challenges us physically, mentally, emotionally. There are the days where just managing to fit a shower in amidst the endless feeding, entertaining young children and surviving on a lack of sleep feels like an achievement. With so many people ready to offer 'advice' on the best way to parent, it can feel like you are getting it all wrong.Since Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher have had their sons Buzz and Buddy, they have been sharing glimpses of their family life. With an infectiously positive outlook and happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be.This is not a book about how to have the perfect family experience - Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us - instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family. In Happy Mum, Happy Baby Giovanna shares her own journey through parenthood and in doing so, she looks at what it is to be a mother today, encourages you to be confident in yourself as a parent and celebrates how putting a focus on being a happy and confident mum can really make for a happy baby.

How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids
Clever, honest and hilarious...her book should become a baby shower classic. (Publishers Weekly). Funny, honest and helpful. (Grazia). Loads of useful, achievable advice. (The Pool). How did I become the 'expert' at changing a nappy? Jancee Dunn wondered. This, combined with a lack of sleep, a suddenly unfair division of household chores and her husband's new found passion for very long bike rides, meant that Jancee found it hard to look at her well-meaning, clever, funny husband playing with his iPhone without feeling a white-hot rage. Like many expectant parents, they'd spent weeks researching the safest car seat but little time thinking about the titanic impact the baby would have on their marriage - and the way their marriage would affect their child. Tired of having the same fights over and over, Dunn consults the latest relationship research, solicits the counsel of renowned sex and couples therapists, canvasses friends and parents, and even consults an FBI hostage negotiator on how to effectively contain an 'explosive situation'. Could it be that the person who got her into this position is the ally she'd forgotten she had? Funny, honest and actually helpful, this book can't do the washing but it might just save your marriage.

Growing Pains: Making Sense of Childhood - A Psychiatrist's Story
It all begins in childhood. Doctor and psychiatrist Mike Shooter has spent over thirty years listening to patients, especially children and adolescents in crisis, helping them to find their stories and begin to make sense of their lives. Their stories are at the heart of this book. Occasionally strange and troubling, they are also inspirational, funny and illuminating. They open a door to the experience and problems of growing up as never before, sharing the process of children and families as, through therapy, they confront everything from loss or illness to destructive, even violent, behaviour.A passionate believer in the importance of listening rather than labeling, Mike Shooter draws on his breadth of experience - in surgery and therapy as well as his own battle with depression - to help us see how breakthroughs can be made and why we won't always get it right. Compelling and compassionate, this is a book to make us wiser and braver, and help children's stories find happier endings.
