Someone Special by S.K. Dinning 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

REVIEWS: "Really well written, amusing and uplifting. An inspiring story!" - Katie Fforde, No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match. "It certainly is funny." - Anna King, BBC Radio Gloucestershire "This is Fabulous!" - Hayley Goleniowska, Britmums Special Needs Round-Up "The author takes what must have been hideously embarrassing real life events and turns them into tales that make you want to chuckle and even laugh out loud." - Robin Jenkins, Gloucestershire Echo. "Downright hilarious." - Closer Magazine. Admittedly, that last comment is actually from a review of a different, far more successful memoir, but that does not mean it is not valid. As far as I know, nobody from Closer Magazine has actually read 'Someone Special' so we cannot be certain that they did not like it, and if they did, they would probably have written "Down-right hilarious" if it had occurred to them. (All the other reviews are real though) BOOK DESCRIPTION: Jamie has Down's syndrome, autistic spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. He is a beautiful, charming and lovable little boy, but he is also - how can we put this? - an exceptionally "challenging" child. In this hilarious, heart-warming and unforgettable memoir, Jamie's long-suffering dad shares a selection of side-splitting and occasionally poignant stories from Jamie's unconventional childhood. Find out why he can never go back to his local library, and why the staff at his local swimming pool flinch whenever he arrives. The author also offers his own witty take on all sorts of topics connected to the subject of disability, and parenthood in general. This book will be adored by anyone who has ever known someone with special needs, or has ever been a parent, or indeed, has ever learned how to read. FROM THE AUTHOR: There are only so many times that you can hear people say "You should write a book about Jamie" before you eventually ...

Dragonfly: A Daughter's Emergence from Autism: A Practical Guide for Parents by Lori Ashley Taylor (Skyhorse) 5.0 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

A parent's guide to helping children with autism maximize their potential. Over a decade ago, an autism diagnosis had confined Lori Ashley Taylor's daughter Hannah to an inaccessible world. Lori became a tireless researcher, worker, and advocate, and her dedication showed results. There can be progression and shifting on the spectrum, and Hannah has done just that -- she has emerged. Part narrative and part practical guide, Dragonfly provides anecdotal and practical guidance for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder. The author discusses intervention strategies, therapies such as Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), and different medical tests. She explains Autism terminology like hyperresponsivesness and stimming. A classroom teacher herself, she recommends educational accommodations and supports. Busy parents can find practical tips on everything from making friends to Sensory Processing Disorder in helpful sidebars in the text. Taylor's personal experience is supplemented by wisdom from a series of round table discussions featuring other parents of children with autism. In the summer of 2013, eight-year-old Hannah wrote "Life of a Dragonfly," a poem with repeated parallel stanzas that used the stages of a dragonfly's life as a mirror for her own physical and cognitive development. Among its wisdom was: "Hope rises, and I begin to reveal my concealed wings. I begin to understand language and what I am meant to do." Taylor has helped her daughter find her wings; in Dragonfly, she gives other parents the tools to do the same.

The Overparenting Epidemic: Why Helicopter Parenting Is Bad for Your Kids . . . and Dangerous for You, Too! by George S. Glass (Skyhorse) 4.2 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Helicopter parents, tiger moms, cosseters, hothouse parents... Whatever we label it, overparenting -- anxious, invasive, overly attentive, and competitive parenting -- may have finally backfired. As we witness the first generation of overparented children becoming adults in their own right, many studies show that when baby boomer parents intervene inappropriately--with too much advice, excessive favors, and erasing obstacles that kids should negotiate themselves--their "millennial" children end up ill-behaved, anxious, narcissistic, entitled youths unable to cope with everyday life. The obsession with providing everything a child could possibly need, from macrobiotic cupcakes to 24/7 tutors, has created epidemic levels of depression and stress in our country's youth, but this can be avoided if parents would just take a giant step back, check their ambitions at the door, and do what's really best for their kids. Written by a noted psychiatrist and a parenting specialist, The Overparenting Epidemic is a science-based yet humorous and practical book that features an easy-to-read menu of pragmatic, reasonable advice for how to parent children effectively and lovingly without overdoing it, especially in the context of today's demanding world.

God's Challenge for Dads: A 90-Day Devotional Experiencing God's Truths by Eric R. Ballard (Good Books) 5.0 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Have you gotten comfortable -- maybe even complacent -- in your spiritual life? Maybe you can check off all the right boxes -- going to church, reading your Bible, praying before meals. Maybe you even lead a small group or serve as a deacon and tithe regularly. But when was the last time someone really shook up your faith, really challenged you to get after it, to pursue God with your whole heart? In this devotional written specifically for dads, Eric Ballard draws wisdom from the men written about in the Bible to push you out of your comfort zone and into a more authentic, whole-hearted relationship with God, which will lead to more meaningful relationships with your family, coworkers, and community. Each devotional includes a scripture, insight into the context and purpose of the passage, a brief prayer, and a challenge. Sometimes the challenges are external -- simple ways to let your wife know you think she's amazing or to make your children feel cared for. Sometimes they're internal -- like daring to let go of your own self-sufficiency and acknowledge you can't do anything right without the Holy Spirit working through you. Allow yourself to be pushed, stretched, and molded into the dad God has called you to be. Discover the Bible's wisdom on everything from work struggles to parenting difficult kids to loving your wife well. Take an honest look at the idols you need to lay down, now. Look a little closer at how you think and talk about work. Discover what godly parenting really means. Are you ready to accept God's challenge? Your kids will be grown before you know it. Don't wait another minute to become the dad God wants you to be.

Finding the Magic in Mommyhood: How to Create the Illusion of Sanity amid Raging Hormones, Sleep Deprivation, and Diaper Rash by Sara Sadik (Skyhorse) 4.9 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

In the gaping cracks between our mommyhood expectations and the messy reality, magic shines through. So much legend, tradition, and everyday talk makes pregnancy out to be a magical experience. But there's no sparkle, no glitter and glamour when you need to pee 3,302 times per night or are struggling to understand what each baby wail means. Finding the Magic in Mommyhood punctures those myths that becoming a mom is all radiance and bliss and balances the hopes and dreams of every new mom and mom-to-be by delivering a roller-coaster of emotion and honesty to recast every breakdown as a breakthrough. Sara knows, all around the globe, a mom is a mom is a mom. Regardless if baby's first solid meal is pureed pear or... hummus. She shares her story of living in Dubai with NYC habits, a London-Lebanese mindset, and Palestinian perseverance to empower moms everywhere to find the good in the midst of the hard, discouraging, or overwhelming. Topics include the pre-preggo phase, pregnancy, and the first year of mommyhood, including how Sara adjusted when an X-ray revealed her baby had hip dysplasia -- a congenital misalignment requiring her to wear a brace. Finding the Magic in Mommyhood tackles unexpected and even uncomfortable topics with ease and humor to help fellow moms dig extra deep to find strength, let alone magic in the moments when you resent this baby you're supposed to love, loathe your husband, or lose yourself and want solely to find a glimpse of sanity... and you again.

Hazard: A Sister's Flight from Family and a Broken Boy by Margaret Combs (Skyhorse) 4.4 Stars (33 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Hazard is a poignant, unflinching memoir of the emotional intricacies of growing up with a severely disabled sibling. Margaret Combs shows how her Southern Baptist family coped with lived reality of autism in an era of ignorance and shame, the 1950s through the 1970s, and shares her own tragedy and anguish of being torn between helping her brother and yearning for her own life. Like many siblings of disabled children, young Margaret drives herself to excel in order to make up for her family's sorrow and ultimately flees her family for what she hopes is a “normal" life. Hazard is also a story of indelible bonds between siblings: the one between Combs and her sister, and the deep and rueful one she has with her disabled brother; how he and she were buddies; and how fervently she wanted to make him whole. Initially fueled by a wish that her brother had never been born, the author eventually arrives in a deeper place of gratitude for this same brother, whom she loves and who loves her in return.

Iris Grace: How Thula the Cat Saved a Little Girl and Her Family by Arabella Carter-Johnson (Skyhorse) 4.7 Stars (98 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Iris Grace is a beautiful little girl who, from a very young age, barely communicated, avoided social interaction with other people, and rarely smiled. From both before her diagnosis of autism and after, she seemed trapped in her own world, unable to connect with those around her. One day, her mother brought home a Maine Coon kitten for Iris, even though cats aren't typically thought of as therapy pets. Thula, named after one of Iris's favorite African lullabies and meaning “peace" in Zulu, immediately bonded with Iris. Thula knew right away how to assuage Iris when she became overstimulated; when to intervene when Iris became overwhelmed; and how to provide distraction when Iris started heading toward a meltdown. Whether exploring, playing, sleeping, or taking a bath with Iris or accompanying the family on a bike ride, Thula became so much more than a therapy cat. With Thula's safe companionship, Iris began to talk and interact with her family. This heartwarming story is illustrated with sixty of Iris's gorgeous impressionistic paintings, works of art that have allowed her to express herself since the age of three. A gifted artist, Iris sees the natural world in a profoundly vivid and visceral way. With Thula by her side, she'll sit and paint for hours, and the results are stunning. Inspiring and touching, Iris Grace follows the struggles and triumphs of a family—and a miracle cat—as they learn to connect with an amazing child.

Beyond Autism: My Life with Lina by Helena Hjalmarsson (Skyhorse) Price verified 17 hours ago

A Passionate Memoir about Life with a Teenage Daughter with Severe Autism, Following the Progress of Acclaimed Book, Finding Lina. Like her passionate first book, Finding Lina, about her daughter with severe autism, Helena Hjalmarsson brings an intensity of purpose and love to her second memoir about Lina, Beyond Autism. Lina's world is one of excruciating challenges. Helena's world is the same, but with her own insights, indominable spirit, and amazing clarity she sheds light and hope for other parents, siblings and caretakers of children with autism, as well as the children with autism themselves. She unflinchingly examines "the paradoxical nature of autism, the never-ending mystery of who our children are and how they got here, in the middle of this unfathomable hurricane of leaky guts, inflammation, yeast, autoimmune disorders, seizures, sensory breakdown, loss of words, physical freedom, sleep, friends, normal life as we are used to refer to it." Beyond Autism is one of an increasing number of "you are not alone" literary statements from parents of children with autism forwarded to the people whose lives, similarly, often blocks the view of the larger community. Beyond Autism is intended to be a meeting place, of sorts. A smile of recognition. A reason for a little dark joke amongst parents. What Helena recognizes is that whenever Lina is not in mayhem, she is in heaven. "In those times she seems so free of the burdens of a past and a future, so deeply present and accepting of the moment... Whenever she is not suffering, it seems to me that she is at that enlightened, awakened place that most people struggle for a whole life time to catch a glimpse of." It's that glimpse that Helene explores, and shares for all those who want, too, to catch and gain insight into the lives of those with autism and those who love them.

The Giant Forest: Chapter Book for Parents and Grandparents of Preteens Who Love to Read (Growing Up Aimi 1) by Mia Belew 5.0 Stars (12 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Move over C S Lewis and Roald Dahl. There's a new storyteller on the rise and she's only 11 years old. Prepare to rediscover the value of friendship when family lets you down. In this mysterious true-to-life story, Aimi, Roci, Mousi, Sybil and Sycamore are a loose group of friends, aka The Bunch, who attend school together. The Bunch go to a 150-year old church camp, Mount Hermon, founded around the time of the first gold rush in 1849. The camp is located in a giant forest in the Santa Cruz mountains of California, just over the hill from Silicon Valley. In keeping with the principles of its founders, Bart, Prissie and their adopted son, Artie, the camp administrators have created a modern day refuge for children like the Bunch who live at a time when many people around them, including their parents, are chasing new gold nearby. Each member of the Bunch becomes seemingly inexplicably lost in the giant forest. They must each find themselves, then find one another before they can together again find their way home. Along the way they are baffled at why they receive help from new animal friend. Each member of the Bunch battles with and finds resolution to problems they face at home from overbearing or neglectful parents, sibling rivalry, prejudice, betrayal and displaced loyalty. When the five become reunited, bigger battles ensue. To return home they must overcome giants that have plagued them throughout their lost experience. If victorious, the Bunch can return to Mt. Hermon with the help of their new forest friends. A chapter book for for preteens who love to read. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter have been parent and child, student and teacher and reading group tested. Create stronger ties with the people who are important to you. Giant Forest = a really big forest... Or... a forest with giants? Or both? Only the reader knows.

Health and Wellbeing in Late Life: Perspectives and Narratives from India by Prasun Chatterjee (Springer) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

This open access book takes a multidisciplinary approach to provide a holistic understanding of late old age, and situates the aged person within the context of family, caregivers, clinical and other institutions. All through the book, the author discusses preparedness for an aging individual as well as the society in the Indian context. The book highlights inevitable but mostly neglected health issues like depression, dementia, fall, and frailty and provides detailed analyses of solutions that are practicable in low resource settings. It also brings up intergenerational differences and harmony in the context of holistic care of older Indians. Alongside clinical perspectives, the book uses narratives of elderly patients to dwell on the myriad of problems and issues that constitute old age healthcare. Demonstrating cases that range from the most influential to the most underprivileged elderly in India, the book enlightens multiple caregivers -- doctors, nurses, and professional caregivers as well as family members -- about the dynamic approach required in dealing with complex issues related to late old age. The narratives make the book relatable and interesting to non-academic readers, with important lessons for gerontological and geriatric caregiving. It is also of use to older adults in preparing for active aging.

What Is a Family?: Answers from Early Modern Japan by Mary Elizabeth Berry (University of California Press) Price verified 10 hours ago

What Is a Family? explores the histories of diverse households during the Tokugawa period in Japan (1603-1868). The households studied here differ in locale and in status -- from samurai to outcaste, peasant to merchant -- but what unites them is life within the social order of the Tokugawa shogunate. The circumstances and choices that made one household unlike another were framed, then as now, by prevailing laws, norms, and controls on resources. These factors led the majority to form stem families, which are a focus of this volume. The essays in this book draw on rich sources -- population registers, legal documents, personal archives, and popular literature -- to combine accounts of collective practices (such as the adoption of heirs) with intimate portraits of individual actors (such as a murderous wife). They highlight the variety and adaptability of households that, while shaped by a shared social order, do not conform to any stereotypical version of a Japanese family.

Becoming a Church that Cares Well for the Abused by Brad Hambrick (B&H Books) Price verified 10 hours ago

Is your church prepared to care for individuals who have experienced various forms of abuse? As we continue to learn of more individuals experiencing sexual abuse, domestic violence, and other forms of abuse, it's clear that resources are needed to help ministries and leaders care for these individuals with love, support, and in cooperation with civil authorities. This handbook seeks to help the church take a significant step forward in its care for those who have been abused. Working in tandem with the resources and videos found at churchcares.com, this handbook brings together leading evangelical trauma counselors, victim advocates, social workers, attorneys, batterer interventionists, and survivors to equip pastors and ministry leaders for the appropriate initial responses to a variety of abuse scenarios in churches, schools, or ministries. Though the most comprehensive training is experienced by using this handbook and the videos together, readers who may be unable to access the videos can use this handbook as a stand-alone resource.

The Politics of Survival: Peirce, Affectivity, and Social Criticism (American Philosophy) by Lara Trout (Fordham University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 10 hours ago

How can sincere, well-meaning people unintentionally perpetuate discrimination based on race, sex, sexuality, or other socio-political factors? To address this question, Lara Trout engages a neglected dimension of Charles S. Peirce's philosophy - human embodiment - in order to highlight the compatibility between Peirce's ideas and contemporary work in social criticism. This compatibility, which has been neglected in both Peircean and social criticism scholarship, emerges when the body is fore-grounded among the affective dimensions of Peirce's philosophy (including feeling, emotion, belief, doubt, instinct, and habit). Trout explains unintentional discrimination by situating Peircean affectivity within a post-Darwinian context, using the work of contemporary neuroscientist Antonio Damasio to facilitate this contextual move. Since children are vulnerable, naïve, and dependent upon their caretakers for survival, they must trust their caretaker's testimony about reality. This dependency, coupled with societal norms that reinforce historically dominant perspectives (such as being heterosexual, male, middle-class, and/or white), fosters the internalization of discriminatory habits that function non-consciously in adulthood. The Politics of Survival brings Peirce and social criticism into conversation. On the one hand, Peircean cognition, epistemology, phenomenology, and metaphysics dovetail with social critical insights into the inter-relationships among body and mind, emotion and reason, self and society. Moreover, Peirce's epistemological ideal of an infinitely inclusive community of inquiry into knowledge and reality implies a repudiation of exclusionary prejudice. On the other hand, work in feminism and race theory illustrates how the application of Peirce's infinitely inclusive communal ideal can be undermined by non-conscious habits of exclusion internalized in childhood by members belonging to historically dominant groups, such as the economically privileged, ...

Hands Down: A Story of Incarceration by Logan Crannell 4.7 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

Adapted from the journal of a falsely imprisoned man, 'Hands Down: A Story of Incarceration', is a testament against a society quick to point fingers and cry wolf. It implores us to question the motives of those claiming victimhood, for it may reveal their own lack of integrity. With each public accuser advertising their oppression, and clamoring for sympathy, it's clear we must develop a rational dialogue. In these times when one tweet, one blog post or soundbite, regardless of context or humor, could be enough to ruin a life well-lived, we have to find a way to ground ourselves. This non-fiction account, both infuriating and inspiring, relates the struggle of a man trying to regain his dignity, and reframe his situation in a positive light. 'Hands Down: A Story of Incarceration', is a book written for the era of mass imprisonment, and a striking rebuttal to the new moral culture in America.

Hide and Play Dead: From Memoir to Real-time Healing (Freedom from Social Oppression Book 1) by Michael King 4.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

"Hide and Play Dead" is not a book to be read. This is a book to be experienced. This book is an unfolding adventure story that you will not want to put down for a minute.

This book will begin to heal you. The book is structured to evoke the emotional states necessary to recover from oppression and teach by example the survival skills needed to stay safe from social predators. _____________ "Hide and Play Dead" is a memoir and nonfiction novel that represents a quantum leap in writing technology, healing methodologies, and social engineering. The work lays a foundation for a paradigm shift in the biosocial sciences that will be developed over a planned series of books. This autobiographical novel is interwoven with the real-time adventure story of my liberation from ancestral patterns based on slavery. The flow, from the beginning and up to the joyous conclusion of the book, appears as a seamless cinematographic stream with an unforgettable true storyline. It is a riveting exposé and psychological thriller filled with international intrigue and startling revelations uncovering inside secrets of the black aristocracy and Intelligentsia, renowned educational institutions, and the field of medicine. This book dares to free readers from oppressive imprints using advanced neuropsychological principles applied to the process of reading. Real people, real pain, real discovery and real adventure into the unknown are the cornerstones of self-healing that I both experience and personify. Moving anecdotes, irony and ...

Teaching children things of the Lord is an honor and a high calling. Children have boundless energy and may appear distracted, but they are capable of understanding biblical truths even adults have a hard time grasping. Children's minds are easily impressed with new thoughts, whether good or bad, and will remember many of their young lessons for the rest of their life. Adults and churches tend to provide entertainment to occupy the children, but children ought to have our undivided attention. Jesus said, let the little children come to me. They were worthy of His time and devotion, and they are worthy of ours. Expect to be challenged and inspired as you read this classic from Charles H. Spurgeon. Learn how to enlarge your heart for all types of children, learn what lessons are best, and learn what results to expect. May this helpful little book be the catalyst for many new or improved shepherds of the Lord's lambs. About the Author Charles Haddon (C. H.) Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British Baptist preacher. He started preaching at age 17 and quickly became famous. He is still known as the "Prince of Preachers," and frequently had more than 10,000 people present to hear him preach at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. His sermons were printed in newspapers, translated into many languages, and published in many books.

Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries: Gender Justice and Norm Change by Caroline Harper (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

The Open Access version of this book, available at http://www.tandfebooks.com/doi/view/10.4324/9781315180250, has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 license Adolescence is a pivotal time in a girl's life. The development of educational, physical, psychosocial, familial, political and economic capabilities enable girls to reach their full potential and contribute to the wellbeing of their families and society. However, progress is still significantly constrained by discriminatory gender norms and the related attitudes and practices which restrict girls' horizons, restrain their ambition and, if unfettered, allow exploitation and abuse. Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries explores the detrimental impact of discriminatory gender norms on adolescent girls' lives across very different contexts. Grounded in four years of in-depth research in Ethiopia, Nepal, Uganda and Viet Nam, the book adopts a holistic approach, recognising the inter-related nature of capabilities and the importance of local context. By exploring the theory of gendered norm change, contextualising and examining socialisation processes, the book identifies the patriarchal vested interests in power, authority and moral privilege, which combine in attempts to restrict and control girls' lives. Throughout the book, Empowering Adolescent Girls in Developing Countries demonstrates how efforts to develop more egalitarian gender norms can enable disadvantaged adolescent girls to change the course of their lives and contribute to societal change. Accessible and informative, the book is perfect for policy makers, think tanks, NGOs, activists, academics and students of gender and development studies.?
