Book Description :

Today’s busier, faster society is waging an undeclared war on childhood. With too much stuff, too many choices, and too little time, children can become anxious, have trouble with friends and school, or even be diagnosed with behavioral problems. Now internationally renowned family consultant Kim John Payne helps parents reclaim for their children the space and freedom that all kids need for their attention to deepen and their individuality to flourish. Simplicity Parenting offers inspiration, ideas, and a blueprint for change: • Streamline your home environment. Reduce the amount of toys, books, and clutter—as well as the lights, sounds, and general sensory overload. • Establish rhythms and rituals. Discover ways to ease daily tensions, create battle-free mealtimes and bedtimes, and tell if your child is overwhelmed. • Schedule a break in the schedule. Establish intervals of calm and connection in your child’s daily torrent of constant doing. • Scale back on media and parental involvement. Manage your children’s “screen time” to limit the endless deluge of information and stimulation. A manifesto for protecting the grace of childhood, Simplicity Parenting is an eloquent guide to bringing new rhythms to bear on the lifelong art of raising children.

Book Description :

In this groundbreaking book, parenting expert and acclaimed author of the bestselling book Simplicity Parenting Kim John Payne, M.Ed., flips the script on children’s challenging or defiant behavior and lays out an elegantly simple plan to support parents in establishing loving, age-sensitive boundaries that help children feel safe and settled. In short: What looks like misbehavior is actually your children’s signal that they’re feeling lost, that they are trying to find direction and looking to you to guide them back on course. Payne gives parents heartwarming help and encouragement by combining astute observations with sensitive and often funny stories from his long career as a parent educator and a school and family counselor. In accessible language, he explains the relevance of current brain- and child-development studies to day-to-day parenting. Breaking the continuum of childhood into three stages, Payne says that parents need to play three different roles, each corresponding to one of those stages, to help steer children through their emotional growth and inevitable challenging times: • The Governor, who is comfortably and firmly in charge—setting limits and making decisions for the early years up to around the age of eight • The Gardener, who watches for emotional growth and makes decisions based on careful listening, assisting tweens in making plans that take the whole family’s needs into account • The Guide, who is both a sounding board and moral compass for emerging adults, helping teens build a sense of their life’s direction as a way to influence healthy decision making Practical and rooted in common sense, The Soul of Discipline gives parents permission to be warm and nurturing but also calm and firm (not overreactive). It gives clear, doable strategies to get things back on track for parents who sense that their children’s behavior has fallen into a troubling pattern. And best of all, it provides healthy direction to the entire family so parents can spend less time and energy on outmoded, punitive discipline and more on connecting with and enjoying their kids. Advance praise for The Soul of Discipline “The Soul of Discipline offers practical tools for helping parents implement discipline that’s respectful and effective, but the book is so much more. Kim John Payne offers a framework to guide parents in making decisions about why, when, and how to hold tighter reins as we build skills in our children, and why, when, and how to loosen the reins as we scaffold freedom.”—Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., co-author of No-Drama Discipline “This book gets deep inside the challenge of getting along with children and teens and thinks deeply about what they need from us to become strong and self-managing. It elevates discipline to what it should be—a caring process of helping kids orient to the world and live in it happily and well.”—Steve Biddulph, author of The New Manhood “Kim Payne provides a useful model for choosing our parenting stance—Governor, Gardener, or Guide—depending on the situation. Most powerfully, Payne begins with the radical view that children are not disobedient but rather disoriented. The upshot of this shift in perspective is that discipline is about helping children orient themselves effectively, not about controlling or chastising.”—Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., author of Playful Parenting

Book Description :

The parents’ attitude of to the child makes the grounds of his behavior in adult life. It’s simply to prove: compare attitudes in your family and the relationship between your parents. You will find that scenarios, scenes, situation, as well as your reactions to them, are very similar. A conclusion is that children take into adulthood not what you would like them to take but just everything. The reality we’ll have to take, whether we like it or not, is as follows: there are no proper education recipes for all advice have nothing to deal with the child's personality, behavior, family members, educators, teachers. Whatever we do, mistakes and responsibility for them will always accompany us. The basic principles making you friends with your children are attention, respect, and support. Focus implies that the adult observing the child's behavior makes conclusions about his interests and hobbies. Respect is the recognition of the child's right to have his feelings, interests, hobbies, and wishes. Support is help and stimulation of the child's interests. Would You Like To Know More?

Today only, get this Paperback version book for just $13.99. Regularly priced at $19.99. A family is the first sculptor forming a soft as wax soul and mind, will and character of a child. The child investigates the world through a family, in the light of a family. Undoubtedly, he receives his first life attitudes in the family. Full-fledged health and harmonic mental development of the child are the aims of all parents. To achieve positive results, close collaboration of both parties is required. But the majority of even the most loving and caring parents make mistakes which may influence on the child's further destiny. When children are born, the first years of their life are predetermined by parents' goals and desires. What will be a color of a stroller, or booties? What toys to choose? Which sports circle to register in? Which school will be better? Feel a catch? The question is that these issues arise out of inertia and their flow does not stop even when the child has his first desires and goals appearing! And so, after these sentence readers are already divided into two groups: the users from the First group are thinking: I give my child a choice, of course, only of what will bring him benefits and what will help him in the future. From the Second one: my kid is too young to make such responsible decisions, he doesn't know what is better for him! In the second case the parents should be asked, how do you think, at what age your child will be able to make his decisions - at 15, 20 years, or maybe when he will have his kids? I wonder, what a person brought up in such conditions can teach his children? Here You Will Learn... How to Reduce the Attention Deficit? How to Give as Much Attention as the Child Needs?

A newborn baby is like a small grain. It has everything laid within. But the question is whether this seed will sprout? Will it grow into a beautiful, blooming and fruiting plant? Will its skills develop to a full extent? It depends on parents. This book deals with the most important and 'painful' issues of upbringing. Parents will learn how to raise a happy, bright and creative person. It will help the parents to become attractive for their children and will support to their authority in the child's eyes. This book is not for children, although, it is written about them. This book is for adults, but not for all adults. For adults who became (or want to be) PARENTS that are the closest people ever. People who are DEEREST to their child, who love and understand him or try to understand. Or, at least, would love to understand. If you don't have such a wish, don't read this book. It will just be useless for you, like other books, seminars, lectures and other smart information. As a rule, children study the language of adults and learn it very quickly. Children are compelled to adapt to adults, as a weak person is compelled to adapt to the laws of a strong one. And, on the other hand, we, the adults, forget the language of childhood, because it is our past already, and we don't think of such categories. And the language of childhood is different, like childhood itself. And, to understand a child, we have to return to the forgotten faraway land. To go back to a place we all came from - to our childhood. Here You Will Learn... Is It Necessary to Bring Up the Children? Why Did the Active Listening Method Gain Such Popularity?

Book Description :

Our modern culture has lowered the volume on our inner voice. We, as parents, are often left disempowered and unclear about our parenting choices. What exactly has been muffling that inner voice, and where do we go from here? Love Centered Parenting offers friendly guidance to help you find your own inner wisdom, so that you hear it loudly and clearly during your parenting journey. It is an intimate share about fertility challenges, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, sleep issues, diet, natural healing, and healthy choices—encouraging you to tune into your own intuition, while reaching out to community to support you. As you read through this book, you will be reminded to tap into your innate intelligence so that you are left feeling empowered with your conscious parenting choices. “The book is both a personal story and an insightful journey into holistic living and parenting. Perhaps the most powerful thread weaving through both Maria’s personal story and her advice on traveling a holistic path, is the message that women must rediscover their mothering intuition and learn to trust their gut instincts. Listening to one’s inner voice is one of the greatest skills any parent can cultivate, whether they choose to follow holistic parenting, or a more conventional route.” — Nancy Peplinsky, founder and executive director, Holistic Moms Network “Maria’s path of discovery has achieved something very rare and precious. That she has been willing to share her wisdom with us is a priceless gift.” — Kim John Payne, M.Ed., author of Simplicity Parenting, Beyond Winning, and The Soul of Discipline. “This book reflects the intuitive and practical experiences of Maria on her path of conscious parenting. Through her experiences, readers are able to expand their awareness for their own journey as well. Kudos, Maria for an authentic, insightful book.” — Jeanne Ohm, DC, executive editor and publisher, Pathway to Wellness Magazine

Book Description :

How do highly sensitive children live in an imperfect world, and what is important for parents to understand to make their family life more comfortable? How to get along with highly sensitive children and how to help them adapt? Why do parents of highly sensitive children need help? Some children come to the world with amazingly thin skin and sensitive perception. They are like little turtles, the shell of which has not hardened yet and does not protect them. Where everyone is sad, they cry. Where everyone is warm, they are hot. They are completely healthy but very empathetic. They feel acutely any falsehood, untruth, or tension. They are ready to empathize and cry at the sight of a chilled kitten, a hunched older person, or any other injustice. They are serious and prudent beyond their years; they ask a lot of questions and are sometimes very adult. They are attentive to details and changes. Parents of highly sensitive children need help because the parent himself may have average sensitivity and not be able to understand his child always. Because public opinion calls such children "spoiled," and parents do not know how to contrast this unpleasant and completely unjustified definition. Because their desire to wear this particular dress or to change clothes as soon as possible when the clothes get dirty, or their unwillingness to speak with strangers at the party, or their desire to fall asleep in the light of a pink rather than a yellow nightlight is not a whim, but the real need of such a child. Because highly sensitive children keenly feel their boundaries and try to defend them in any way they can at their tender age - they need the support of mom and dad. All parents dream of helping their children live a happier life. Adapting himself and good emotional contact with parents will save a highly sensitive child from many problems and complexes in adulthood to help him realize himself more fully and live happily. You will learn from this book how to get along with highly sensitive children and how to help them adapt. In this book you will discover: the main character traits of a highly sensitive child the differences and similarities between highly sensitive children and children with "developmental delays" the main mistakes made raising highly sensitive children the best advice and tips for parents of highly sensitive children and more! All of the tips in this book are carefully crafted through experience to enable you to have a stellar relationship with your child. Invest your time, read this book, and become a better parent!

Book Description :

Some of the best parenting advice that John E. Lema ever received did not come from parenting experts, but from friends and podcast listeners who acted on a whim, often in moments of desperation. These "weird parenting wins" were born of moments when the expert advice wasn't working, and instead of freaking out, these parents had a stroke of genius. For example, there's the dad who pig-snorted in his baby's ear to get her to stop crying, and the mom who made a "flat daddy" out of cardboard and sat it at the dinner table when her kids were missing their deployed military father.

We're in the midst of a parenting climate that feeds on more. More expert advice, more gear, more fear about competition and safety, and more choices to make about education, nutrition, even entertainment. The result? Overwhelmed, confused parents and overscheduled, overparented kids. In MINIMALIST PARENTING, Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest offer a fresh approach to navigating all of this conflicting background "noise." They show how to tune into your family's unique values and priorities and confidently identify the activities, stuff, information, and people that truly merit space in your life. The book begins by showing the value of a minimalist approach, backed by the authors' personal experience practicing it. It then leads parents through practical strategies for managing time, decluttering the home space, simplifying mealtimes, streamlining recreation, and prioritizing self-care. Filled with parents' personal stories, readers will come away with a unique plan for a simpler life.

Book Description :

Parents use music in family life to accomplish practical tasks, make relational connections, and guide their children's musical development. Parenting Musically portrays the musicking of eight diverse Cleveland-area families in home, school, and community settings. Themes from interviews focused on the families' hopes and dreams for their children musically, as well as the families' perceptions of media messages regarding parents and music, serve to deepen the documentation of how families use and perceive music in their daily lives. Family musical interactions are analyzed using the concepts of musical parenting (actions to support a child's musical development) and parenting musically (using music to accomplish extra-musical parenting goals), arguing the importance of recognizing and valuing both modes. An additional construct, practical/relational musicking, adds to the detailed analysis of family musical engagement. Practical musicking refers to musicking for a practical purpose, such as learning a scale or passing the time in a car; relational musicking is musicking that deepens relationships with self, siblings, parents, or community members, such as a grandmother singing to her grandchildren via Facetime as a way to feel connected. Families who embraced both practical and relational musicking expressed satisfaction in long-term musical involvement. Weaving together themes of conscious and intuitive parenting, the rewards and struggles of musical practice, and the role of mutuality in community musicking, the discussion draws on research in music education, psychology, family studies, and sociology. This book serves to highlight the multi-faceted nature of families' engagement in music; the author urges music education practitioners and administrators to consider this diversity when approaching curricular decisions. Written in a style accessible to laypersons, this book will interest a wide range of music educators as well as families, community members, and scholars and practitioners in family studies, psychology, and sociology.

Book Description :

This generation of parents is overwhelmed with parenting advice. Carla Naumburg sets out to remind them that they have everything they need to raise healthy, happy children. Mindful parenting is about paying attention to what is going on with your children and yourself, without judging, freaking out, or thinking everyone should be doing something differently. In Parenting in the Present Moment, Naumburg shares what truly matters in parenting — connecting with children in ways that are meaningful to them and you, staying grounded amid the craziness of parenting, and staying present for whatever life throws your way. With reassuring, compassionate storytelling, she weaves the most current theories — about healthy relationships, compassionate self-care, and mindfulness — throughout vignettes of her own chaotic childhood and parental struggles. She shows how mindfulness creates a solid foundation for any style of parenting, regardless of your cultural background, socioeconomic status, or family structure. She also introduces the STAY model for tough times: Stop whatever it is you’re doing; Take a breath; Attune to your thoughts and those of your child; and Yield. Parenting is an ongoing journey that constantly challenges every parent. Parenting in the Present Moment will helps each family find its own way.
