A compassionate memoir about a father's relationship with his children, the healing power of a small act of kindness, and the proof that love is everlasting. Love you, Dad. Miss you so much. Steph. A brokenhearted daughter scribbled those words on a sky lantern before sending it off to her father in heaven who had passed away. Halfway across the country, Steph's lantern landed in Matt Mikalatos's yard. As a father of three daughters, Matt could not let that heart-wrenching note unanswered, so he posted an open letter to her on his blog, which went viral overnight. Little did he know how that small act of kindness would lead him to the real Steph and change his family's life in remarkable ways. A poignant and lyrical account of the beauty and wonder found in domestic life, Sky Lantern shows how the miraculous events that followed Matt finding the sky lantern in his yard--and the widespread and lasting impact his letter had--prove that the bond between a parent and their child can last forever.

It will be an invaluable resource for parents, kindergarten and nursery teachers, homeschoolers, or anyone with an interest in keeping in touch with the kingdom of childhood. These games and lullabies are imbued with the idea that loving contact with children helps them to establish a careful, nurturing relation with plants, animals, people and things in their surroundings, and movement leads them to a keen awareness of their important place in all of it.

As more and more South African parents look at the option of their children with disabilities attending mainstream schools, many questions are raised: Mainstream or special shool? What is involved in each of these choices? What are the expected outcomes for the child as an individual? Why are there special schools? Will the school I choose provide for my child's needs?;This guide examines these issues and helps to find answers to commonly asked questions about inclusion. Terminology is explained and new legislation with its implications is examined. Parents, children and teachers share their stories and experiences in the hope that others will have more information to make the choices that are appropriate for them.
This is not a book about parenting. There are 1.3 billion of those already, and the main thrust is, 'if possible, try not to be a shit parent.' Instead, this is a book about us. You and me. The knackered parents, flailing about in the supposedly 'easier' Middle Years, when our babies have sprouted body hair and attitudes, we're supposed to be 'getting our life back' at last . . . but everything feels as if it's gone a bit tits down. From puberty to parents' evenings, anxiety to A-Levels, divorce to depression, sex to social media, hormones to . . . Jesus, is that chin hair?! This comprehensive, honest, hilarious and at times heart-breaking rummage through the Rotting Salad Drawer of Midlife (TM) that we all go through but nobody tells us about until we're already drowning in it, holds your weary hand and offers a giant, life-saving snog of, 'IT'S OK. IT'S NOT JUST YOU'. Praise for The Middle Years: 'Everyone in the middle years of parenting needs to read this frank, funny and courageous book!' - Beverley Turner'A TRIUMPH! Liz nails the reality of the Middle Years with humour, empathy and fearlessness. I laughed out loud, teared up and cringed.' - Natasha Pearlman, Executive Editor of Glamour US 'This is a brilliantly insightful, wonderfully written, bloody funny book!' - Ben Shephard, Good Morning Britain 'I am reading this and crying with laughter.' - Tanya Byron
Biblical fatherhood cannot be outsourced. Fathers are the primary disciple makers in the home. Our children are following our lead, but where are we leading them? Are we leading them towards the perfect Father, encouraging them to grow in their faith and to become the adults that God made them to be? What does a godly dad look like?
Adventure along with two dads in a devotional journey full of wisdom and
'To keep children clean is something that should never be attempted. It cannot be done.' 'The mere provision of the vegetable is not sufficient; it must be actually eaten.' 'If there is room enough for somersaults, the child can be satisfied.' Many books of advice for new parents were published during the 1920s and 30s, influenced by the growth of developmental psychology and aimed at the aspirant middle classes who were taking a more hands-on role in the raising of their offspring. This compendium brings together nuggets from the best of these titles in one handy volume. Chapters include good - and bad - behaviour, meals and mealtimes, dress and deportment, children's parties and playtime and storytelling, with sections on the all-important saying 'No!' and good bedtime habits. Illustrated with charming contemporary line drawings, this little book is full of no-nonsense, old-fashioned parenting advice: a gem of a guide for anyone new to the hardest job in the world.

As seen in Time, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and on CBS This Morning, BBC, PBS, CNN, and NPR, iGen is crucial reading to understand how the children, teens, and young adults born in the mid-1990s and later are vastly different from their Millennial predecessors, and from any other generation. With generational divides wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today's rising generation of teens and young adults. Born in the mid-1990s up to the mid-2000s, iGen is the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone. With social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen spends less time with their friends in person-perhaps contributing to their unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time, how they behave, and in their attitudes toward religion, sexuality, and politics. They socialize in completely new ways, reject once sacred social taboos, and want different things from their lives and careers. More than previous generations, they are obsessed with safety, focused on tolerance, and have no patience for inequality. With the first members of iGen just graduating from college, we all need to understand them: friends and family need to look out for them; businesses must figure out how to recruit them and sell to them; colleges and universities must know how to educate and guide them. And members of iGen also need to understand themselves as they communicate with their elders and explain their views to their older peers. Because where iGen goes, so goes our nation-and the world.
This is a passionate manifesto for a whole-body approach to learning, which integrates the brain, senses, movement, and play. This practical, inspiring book will enable parents and educators to help children attain their full potential. Fully revised second edition with substantial new material and comprehensive index.
