1 Aldort, Naomi Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves: Transforming parent-child relation ships from reaction and struggle to freedom, power an
Book Publishers Network 2006 1887542329 / 9781887542326 Paperback Near Fine 
Every parent would happily give up every scolding, punishing or threatening if she only knew how to ensure that her toddler/child/teen would thrive an d act responsibly without such painful measures. Raising Our Children, Rais ing Ourselves is the answer to this universal wish. It is not about gentle ways to control a child, but about a way of being and of understanding a ch ild so she/he can be the best of herself, not because she fears you or seek s your approval but because she wants to, of her own free will. Aldort's gu idance takes the struggle out of parenting. The book is full of real life s tories, often leaving the reader moved to tears or laughter and relieved to discover that there is a kinder way. The SALVE communication formula has b een praised for providing a hybrid of The Work of Byron Katie and Nonviolen t Communication. It gives parents the tools to move beyond their initial un productive reaction, to a response that is connecting and empowering to the child and to themselves.

Radical Parenting: Seven Steps to a Functional Family in a Dysfunctional Wo rld, Blanton, Dr. Brad
3 Blanton, Dr. Brad Radical Parenting: Seven Steps to a Functional Family in a Dysfunctional Wo rld
Radical Honesty,Sparrowhawk 2004 0970693826 / 9780970693822 Paperback Good 
Radical Parenting brings together the revolutionary ideas in psychotherapis t Brad Blanton's other books - Radical Honesty, Practicing Radical Honesty and Honest to God (with Neale Donald Walsch). The honesty and openness of t he author himself about his own children is combined with the wisdom gleane d from years of work with people suffering from how they were raised. This book does no less than create an entirely new blueprint for parenting. It's for people who really want to transcend the limitations of the family and culture in which they were raised. It is based on decades of work with thousands of individuals and families, as well as the most recent scientific research on brain physiology, biochemistry, cognitive theory, evolutionary theory, cultural anthropology, and psychological growth and development. The goal of this book is to show parents how to parent consciously, so they can prevent crippling their children in the same ways they were crippled in their own families and schools. It goes into intricate detail about how human minds get built, how they function, and how they malfunction. It gives practical examples of what to attend to with children from the beginning of their life, and how to be with them as they grow. And it rants eloquently against the cultural limitations that make us blind to how we re-create suffering, so we can nurture our children in a way that allows them to remain playful and curious all the way into adulthood.

5 Brazelton, T Berry On Becoming a Family
Bantam Doubleday Dell 1982 0440567122 / 9780440567127 Paperback Near Fine 
The passionate attachment between parents and babies, as well as the inevit able anxieties, begin well before birth. Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, whom Time calls "the nation's preeminent baby doctor" shows how this turmoil prepares parents for the arrival of the child and how to survive and enjoy those im portant early months when a new relationship begins and a new family is bor n. As the cornerstone of his classic trilogy, which continues with Infants And Mothers and Toddlers and Parents, this revised an up-to-date edition of On Becoming A Family supports parents through pregnancy, birth, and the first few months. Dr. Brazelton examines the great adjustments parents must make in their relationships with each other and with the new baby; the gradual (not instant) process of bonding; the normal competitions between parents and caregivers; and the effects on all this of Caesarean section, premature birth, single parenthood, and a child born with a potential disability. This edition also includes astounding new insight into the abilities of the newborn, and an entirely new chapter on attachment in adoptive families.

8 Coles, Gerald The Learning Mystique : A Critical Look at "Learning Disabilities"
Ballantine Books 1989 0449903516 / 9780449903513 Paperback Very Good 
The author argues against today's dominant theory that learning disabilitie s are caused by neurological deficits. He explains the development of this paradigm as the response of our educational system to post-war social and e conomic trends. Coles first examines the history of dyslexia research, find ing most of it to be inconclusive. He then presents a new model of learning problems, in which family and school environments are the major determinan ts of academic success. In this "interactive" paradigm, the attitudes and m ethods of education are more important than inherent strengths or deficits of the individual child. This book prompts us to reexamine some of our educ ational system's basic assumptions.

13 Eisenberg, Arlene What to Expect When You're Expecting
Workman Publishing Company 1996 089480829X / 9780894808296 Paperback Very Good 
A clean softcover, no markings throughout: This traditional, popular guide to pregnancy covers every possible aspect of the prenatal period: pregnancy tests; choosing a caregiver; month-by-month fetal development; eating correctly; sex during pregnancy; common illness symptoms; and childbirth options, including cesarean section and pain medications. The authors also provide a healthful approach to prenatal nutrition, though some women may find it hard to consistently meet their high standards. They use a reassuring and informative tone to describe and answer common concerns and not-so-common problems, and the month-by-month format is particularly clear and helpful. While What to Expect When You're Expecting is an excellent overall guide, parents-to-be interested in a less physician-centered approach are advised to use it in conjunction with other pregnancy resources, such as The Pregnancy Book by William and Martha Sears.

14 Elkind, David All Grown Up and No Place to Go: Teenagers in Crisis
Perseus Books Group 1997 0201483858 / 9780201483857 Paperback Near Fine 
All Grown Up and No Place to Go spotlights the pressures on teenagers to gr ow up quickly. The resulting problems range from common alienation to self- destructive behavior. Quoting teenagers themselves, Elkind shows why adoles cence is a time of "thinking in a new key," and how young people need this time to get used to the social and emotional changes their new thinking bri ngs. Many of his ideas, such as the "imaginary audience" that makes teens s o self-conscious, have become seminal in adolescent psychology. In this tho roughly revised edition, Elkind also explores the "post-modern family" in w hich teenagers are growing up. He helps parents and those who work with you th understand teens in crucial ways, because the root of so many adolescent frictions is the gap between what teenagers need and what our culture prov ides.

Children Are From Heaven, Gray, John
19 Gray, John Children Are From Heaven
Harper 1999 0060175656 / 9780060175658 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A crisp clean first edition (as stated), no markings throughout, NOT an ex- lib: Psychologist John Gray (he of Men Are from Mars... fame) cites a need to sh ift from "fear-based parenting" (a punitive and oppressive approach to chil d rearing) to "love-based parenting" (which accepts children's desires and negative emotions while still setting reasonable limits). With child and te en violence increasing, rampant low self-esteem, substance abuse, teen preg nancy, and attention deficit disorder, he says, "the Western free world is experiencing a crisis in parenting. Almost all parents today are questionin g both the old and the new ways of parenting. Nothing seems to be working." He suggests "Five Messages of Positive Parenting" that will facilitate such a shift: 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. Although his parenting philosophy is not necessarily revolutionary (think " positive discipline"), Gray manages to keep this parenting primer contempor ary by weaving in specific challenges of new-millennium families--such as o ur tendency to be consumer-driven and overscheduled. "When parents learn wh at their children really need, they are less motivated to create money to a cquire things and more motivated to create time to enjoy their family," Gra y writes. "The greatest wealth for a parent today is time." --Gail Hudson From Publishers Weekly "All children are born innocent and good," asserts Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. Getting them to cooperate is merely a matter
