Someone Special by S.K. Dinning 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 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 ...

9,000 Miles of Fatherhood: Surviving Crooked Cops, Teenage Angst, and Mexican Moonshine on a Journey t by Kirk Millson (Cedar Fort, Inc.) 4.7 Stars (23 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

"And with that we struck the most important bargain of all: If I ever said something unfriendly I would pay him a fine, the amount determined by the severity of the infraction. Lobbing an F-bomb, for example, would cost me 50 pesos. Raising my voice would cost me 5[... ] 'Well, that's my plan," I added. "What do you think?' Peter sat quietly for a few seconds before a smile slowly spread across his face. 'I think I'm going to be rich.'" Forced out of his high-ranking editorial position at the local newspaper, Kirk Millson couldn't bear the thought of starting all over and crawling back to the copy desk. So when his new boss offers him a leave of absence, Kirk jumps at the chance to realize his dream of driving the more than 4,000 miles from Salt Lake City to Panama's Darien Gap. His wife readily consents, with one minor catch: He has to take his son Peter along for the ride. Follow Kirk and his emotionally estranged 13-year-old son on a four-month long journey in this true, no-frills travelogue. In spite of robbers, corrupt law enforcement, and their sub-par Spanish, Kirk and his son Peter undergo astonishing transformations. 9,000 Miles of Fatherhood is the hilarious yet hair-raising memoir that follows a timid boy's rise from D-student to straight-A academic juggernaut and his father's rediscovery of a purpose far greater than the job he left behind.

Dragonfly: A Daughter's Emergence from Autism: A Practical Guide for Parents by Lori Ashley Taylor (Skyhorse) 5.0 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 4 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 9 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 5 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 4 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.

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 7 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.

Understanding Teenage Anxiety: A Parent's Guide to Improving Your Teen's Mental Health by Jennifer Browne (Skyhorse) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

If you're the parent of a teenager experiencing chronic anxiety, this book is for you. Today's teens are high-strung and socially overextended. We shrug it off as a millennial problem, but is it? In a world that encourages the quick fix, instant gratification, and real-time feedback, can we really expect our children to cope as we did less than two decades ago, in the land of handshakes, eye contact, elbow grease, and grit? This book is a product of a combination of three very different perspectives: those of the anxious teen, the parent, and the therapist. We need to understand what we've created in terms of our current society to gain proper insight on why we're seeing increasingly rising levels of anxiety in our teenagers. Topics include: • Physical and Emotional Symptoms of Anxiety • Teens and Self-Harm • Anxiety and Gut Health • Sports: Concussions and Anxiety • Natural Ways to Help Your Teen Cope • And much, much more Within each chapter, author (and parent) Jennifer Browne and co-author (Jennifer's teenage son) Cody Buchanan, who struggles with anxiety and depression, will weigh in on what this affliction feels like, physically, mentally, and emotionally. They share personal experiences to help parents better understand their teens and learn a lot along the way.

Beyond Autism: My Life with Lina by Helena Hjalmarsson (Skyhorse) Price verified one day 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.
