Of interest to all adults helping children work through a divorce or separation, this book provides real help at a difficult time

Written with both personal and professional insight, "The Essential Guide to Children and Separation" includes interviews with children who have gone through the adjustment process when parents separate. It sheds light and brings hope and encouragement to anyone who is trying to help children through one of the most difficult of life's experiences. All children will react differently, but some issues are common to all: the need to be listened to; coping with the grief that follows the destruction of the family unit; having divided loyalties; dealing with the organization necessary when a child has two homes; and coming to terms with step-parents and step-families. This is essential reading for those who need to know how to support children through the divorce process and the years that follow, including parents, grandparents, extended family, friends, teachers, youth workers, and counselors.

Shoot the Baby offers practical tips and simple tricks for taking great baby photos. More humorous than technical, the advice works with any camera - disposable, digital, mobile phone or Box Brownie! Shoot the Baby is perfect for parents keen to capture those precious early moments yet too busy to study photography at night school. Doting grandparents, godparents, uncles and aunts may also be tempted to 'Shoot the Baby' from time to time. Written for parents, not professionals, the guide is refreshingly easy to read and quite possibly the first photography book not to mention focal length. The book is split into three key sections; Top tips, composition ideas and 'spot the difference'. Appealing images of babies are used throughout the book to illustrate different points. With over 700 000 babies born in the UK each year and millions of baby photos taken each year, the market opportunity is huge. The UK baby market is worth over GBP630m and spending on non-necessity items is high. Shoot the Baby addresses a gap in the market - the other books in the sector are aimed more at the professional photographer than the new mum. The book will be supported by the website www.shootthebaby.co.uk "Photos of your baby are the most precious thing and this beautiful book is full of useful tips and creative ideas to make sure your pictures not only look professional but also really capture the gorgeousness of your baby" Editor, Mother and Baby Magazine.

Early-Start Potty Training (Hardcover): Linda Sonna Early-Start Potty Training (Hardcover)

R621 R491 Discovery Miles 4 910 Save R130 (21%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The time-tested, gentle, and successful method that introduces children to potty training as early as six months

While parents around the world successfully potty train their children well before preschool age, in the United States, we've moved away from this early introduction. However, there's no evidence that later is better--in fact, there's even significant reason to believe that later can be detrimental.

Written by a respected child psychologist, Early-Start Potty Training shows why the early-start method is preferable to the commonly used readiness method. Waiting until children show signs of readiness can hold them back from preschool, cost a fortune in diapers, and lead to health problems. The early-start method avoids these concerns by starting the process of training as early as six months old.

This easy-to-follow program provides you with:

- Time-tested training tips for introducing toddlers--and even infants--to the potty

- Methods for combating common problems of training delay

- A troubleshooting plan for moving toddlers from diapers to potty independence

- Hints on how to overcome accidents and build confidence in children

The Aware Baby marks a major breakthrough in our understanding of babies' emotional needs, and has now been translated into Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, and Italian. The author emphasizes the attachment needs of infants, which are best met by close physical contact, breast-feeding, and prompt responsiveness to crying. At the core of her philosophy is the concept of crying as tension release, with the emphasis that babies should never be left alone to cry. Topics covered include birth and bonding, crying, sleep/feeding issues, non-authoritarian discipline, temper tantrums, play, stimulation/learning, toilet training, attachment and separation issues.

This brilliantly original and practical system for parenting children is the brainchild of John Gray, whose Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus books and seminars have helped millions of adults communicate more effectively and lovingly with each other. Based on this idea that children respond better to positive rather than negative reinforcement, the Children Are from Heaven program concentrates on rewarding, not punishing, children and fostering their innate desire to please their parents.

Central to this approach are the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again:

It's okay to be different.
It's okay to make mistakes.
It's okay to express negative emotions.
It's okay to want more.
It's okay to say no, but remember Mom and Dad are the bosses.

Mike Birbiglia never wanted to be a father. In fact, there are seven very specific reasons he never wanted a kid, including his aversion to sticky surfaces and his less-than-ideal genes: he's had Lyme Disease, a bladder tumor, diabetes, and dangerous sleepwalking, to name a few. Not to mention the fact that Mike generally doesn't think people (including himself) are really all that great. Then Mike's wife, poet Jen Hope Stein, becomes infected with the contagion "baby fever" and convinces him she'll do all of the parenting and that their lives don't have to change because of future baby Oona. Yes, he bought that line. In a hilarious memoir about the trials and tribulations of parenting, Mike Birbiglia shares anecdotes all parents can relate to, including laugh-out-loud observations on the lead up to being a parent, the birth of the baby, and the very messy aftermath of bringing this new one home...for a forever stay! Borne out of and based on his Broadway show The New One, and entirely expanded upon with at least 50% new material for this book, new dad Birbiglia will have you crying from laughter and smiling with joy as he falls in love with baby Oona, despite how smelly she is! Mike's candid thoughts on his reluctance about becoming a dad, what he describes as being the "pudgy milkless vice president of his family," laced with Stein's poetry combine to form a heartfelt and hilarious book.

"During the summer before he went to college, he was obnoxious; he said, 'There's a reason I'm acting this way; it will make it easier for you to have me leave.'"

"When she was packing to leave, she was completely preoccupied with how many sheets and towels to take. I was thinking, 'My kid is leaving home forever, and life is taken up with minutiae.'"

It's an emotional rollercoaster, a combination of missing him and feeling happy and excited for him."

New Beginnings

You've taught them how to do their laundry, brought them a year's supply of toothpaste and shampoo, and lectured them on the do's and dont's of life beyond your home. The time has come for your child to leave for college -- but are you prepared to say goodbye?

Written by a mother who survived the perils of packing her own child off to school, When Your Kid Goes to College provides supportive, reassuring, and helpful tips for handling this inevitable but difficult separation.

Comprehensive and accessible, this practical guide includes info on:

  • Teaching your child how to live on his own, from balancing a checkbook to dealing with a roomate.

  • The difference between financial and emotioanl dependence -- and how to keep them separate.

  • Helping your spouse, younger children, and even pets deal with the transition when your child leaves -- and when she returns.

  • How to fill -- and even enjoy -- the hole that your child's absence leaves.

Saying goodbye isn't the end of the world; it's the beginning of an exciting new one for your child-and you!

With this new book Alice Honig addresses a neglected area in child development - how to help low literacy parents and parents for whom English is a second language enchance the literacy and cognitive development of their children in the home environment and through daily routines. In learning to choose appropriate songs and books for children, adults will feel comfortable with storytime long before their children begin to talk. Honig and coauthor Holly E. Brophy focus on language as a fundamental family activity. Through the use of songs and stories, the authors show how rich language interaction enhances an infant's feelings of love and security and how it helps toddlers and young children learn more about objects, rules, daily experiences and people. Rather than through more formal dialogue or an educational setting, ideas on how to talk to children are anchored to activities and comfortable personal chats between caregivers and child. With its emphasis on the roles both parents play in talking with babies during daily activities - such as diapering, bath time, feedings and walks - parents should find it an easily understood and valuable resource. In addition, the book reassures caregivers that, as children begin to experiment with language power, newly acquired behaviours are perfectly natural. For example, parents for whom disciplining their child is difficult, will learn to manage a child's new-found willfulness as well as the need to experiment with behaviour, even bad behaviour. The authors have included an entire section on discipline, which further illustrates ways to communicate effectively with children to improve cooperation. The book should be of interest to those in child development and psychology and literacy education, as well as a general manual for low-literacy parents.
