Yoga For Kids: The Basics (Yoga For Kidz)

by Hannah Hoobyar

Are you looking for a way to connect with your kids? Do you wish there was something you could do to get the kids in your life to try, maybe even like, yoga? Now there is. With Yoga Basics for Kidz you are introduced to the absolute best way to share yoga with the kids in your life.

Written by a teenager who has used yoga to get through the good and the bad, this book is easy to understand, non-threatening, and even a bit fun. Hailed by yoga teachers as being “easy to understand” and “a great way to write about yoga” it is a must have in your library.

Whether you work with kids in schools, day care centers, yoga studios, or at home this book is guaranteed to help you find interesting and fun ways to introduce yoga poses and postures to the kids in your life.

This book has over a dozen illustrated poses, complete with descriptions written in language even the youngest kids can understand. She even included an FAQ section, glossary, and a couple of really cool tracking sheets in the back for kids to use to see if they’re making progress.

It seems this author has thought of it all, but then again, that makes sense since she’s still a kid herself! She definitely has her finger on the pulse of her audience, writing in a style that would welcome even the most hesitant participant. She includes real life examples of when and how to practice yoga, and even includes reminders about the basics, like breathing.

It is a rare thing to find an author who can write to their audience, but this author has done something even more difficult. She has effectively written it for three audiences: parent, kids and yoga teachers. The magic about this book is that she has done it well! This is a requirement for anyone thinking about trying yoga with the kids in your life.



Parental Alienation after Divorce – Child Abuse or Hype? (Divorce Advice)

by Rick Nischalke

The book: “Parental Alienation after Divorce – Child Abuse or Hype?” was created especially for the Kindle Singles program and has been submitted.

Is Parental Alienation child abuse or just hype? It would be difficult to find a more heated or controversial debate in our culture today! This book takes a candid and informed look at both sides of this extremely relevant debate. 

As divorce rates continue to climb so do accusations of Parental Alienation (sometimes referred to as Parental Alienation Syndrome). Combine disappointment, rejection and anger with the financial pressure and the extreme changes that divorce require, and it creates a powder-keg of emotions just waiting to explode!

Is it possible that a parent would intentionally alienate their own child from the other parent? If so, what would motivate them and how would they accomplish it? Or is it possible that a parent might simply use false accusations of alienation against an innocent parent to gain leverage in a child custody battle? Who should we believe? What in the world is really going on?

This short book will help separate fact from fiction. In the end, you will be the judge of whether Parental Alienation is child abuse or just hype.

I cover this topic in much more detail at KeepingFamiliesConnected.org.
