Stay Safe on Campus!: Tips for Prevention, Techniques for Emergencies

by Marcia Kelley

The purpose of this book is to open communication between students and their parents and school personnel about how to keep students safe in today’s environment.

To Students

Getting ready for college is a special time. You’re experiencing so many new things in life such as getting your driver’s license, a car, a job, meeting people from different cultures, planning trips on your own, independence and more. It’s easy to be caught up in all these experiences and to forget about safety becauseâ?¦let’s face it. Safety is somewhat boring compared to the other things, but it is just as important for you to be smart about safety so that you can truly enjoy your college experience.

To Parents

As a concerned parent, you want to help your student choose the best school for their interests. Whether you are sending your first child off to college or a younger child, treat every child’s experience as if it is your first child’s experience. Even if this child is going to the same school as that of an older sibling, go to a campus visit. Times have changed. Schools adopt new policies, build new buildings, add new staffâ?¦you get the picture.



Twelve Alternatives to Time Out: Connected Discipline Tools for Raising Cooperative Children

by Ariadne Brill

The twelve alternatives to time out presented in this book focus on problem solving and cooperative learning to give parents and children a chance to address behavior while maintaining a positive, respectful and connected relationship.

Encouraging better behavior without time out is not only possible, it is, according to the latest research on child development and parenting practices, more effective.

While children tend to repeat misbeaviors shortly after time out, connected parenting tools help children really learn to make better choices. This guidance based approach to parenting and discipline is not only effective, it will work from toddlerhood and well into the teen years.

A connected approach to discipline helps children learn the skills they need to be successful, resilient, happy, empathetic, cooperative and well-adjusted for life.

Discover why what children do is not manipulation, learn how to tackle “misbehaviors” and teach your child the value of cooperation and respect.

Read stories from real parents that have used connected discipline tools to positively transform whining, screaming, defiance, back talk, tantrums, dawdling, sibling fights and many other every day parenting challenges.

Children are quite creative when it comes to solving problems, this book will help you foster that ability and also help you teach your child to calm down instead of melt down.

This book gives you twelve concrete parenting tools, based on real families plus the latest parenting and child development research so you can choose how to best incorporate them into your own parenting practices.

This book was written by a parenting educator, with years of experience working with children and families who is also the mother to three children. Because the author is a busy mother herself, the book was written purposely to be short, useful and practical, while still presenting valuable information.

Editorial Reviews:

International Praise for ‘Quick Fix for Parents Living With Boomerang Kids’ â?¢

â??As an Empty Nester and potential parent of a Boomerang daughter, this insightful little guide has stopped me in my tracks and made me re-think my behaviour when my daughter returns home on holidays. I am sure this will enable me to be a far more effective communicator with clearer expectations, and thereby avoid potential pitfalls when and if she returns after University. Thank you, Kay and Pat’. What great advice.’

Jane Neville-Rolfe

â??Kay and Pat have again written a very useful and readable Quick Fix book. They have clearly laid out the problems that can arise with the BK situation and provided a simple and logical method of how to deal with it.’

Janet Siegl

â??Another great advice book for both parents and their young, adult children. Very positive are the two points of view and sometimes differing suggestions. Each and every one of us will experience this phase of life differently and therefore sure to find the right solutions here.’

Lucy Vollmer

â??Thoroughly enjoyed reading the Quick Fix For Parents Living with Boomerang Kids. Wish I’d had this several years ago. What I found interesting though is the contract idea in the book…one son’s wife has a daughter in her twenties, who is a boomerang kid and with their own growing family of children, this does put pressure on both accommodation and finances when she can’t pay her rent any more and has to move back “home”. I have had to support them almost on a monthly basis. So, in a way, even though he does not live with me, I have a financially supported Boomerang Kid too!

Lose the Cape: Realities from Busy Modern Moms and Strategies to Survive (Lose the Cape! Book 1)

by Alexa Bigwarfe

This mothering gig is serious stuff.

There’s no handbook on how to deal with your kid, yet many moms feel pressured to be “supermom.” Sure, there are parenting books and websites and Pinterest, but it’s overwhelming. There’s so much to do, and despite our best efforts, we likely feel guilty for not doing more, doing better, doing it all.

This book is an attempt to reach out to all moms and let you know you’re already super.

You don’t need the “cape,” really.

Still, who couldn’t use a little help? Lose the Cape features resources galore – including suggestions and tips from a diverse group of moms to make life run smoother. Organization, meal planning, morning and evening routines, battling new mommy worries, and so forth are all tackled in one place to provide a handbook for any mom looking for some relief.

We’re not experts.

We’re like every other mom – trying to survive and show our kids some love.

But, we’ve learned along the way to cut a few corners, to learn some systems to gain control of the chaos, to form support groups to lift us up, to find a way that works for our families and ourselves.

We try to be super every day, but we don’t aspire to be “supermom” because she simply does not exist.

We think it’s time for all moms to join together and Lose the Cape.

It Ain’t Just The Size is a deeply filled play on morality, an ongoing social commentary for our times.

Why Do Men Cheat?
Is America Post-Racial?
Has the Media Failed us?
When to have The Talk?

and more…

    Simply The Wildside: on raising boys

    by Amber Joy

    Our tan pickup truck with an unmatched topper was loaded to the brim. It’s hard to think that just weeks prior we filled a three story house. Now all that we owned fit into the back of a six-foot pickup truck.

    My husband, the salesman, provided us a great life: new cars, the latest gadgets, a large house, and great vacations. Somehow that just never was enough. We craved adventure, the outdoors, and a new lease on life. So one day we took it. When no one was looking we ditched our life in Middle America, we left everything behind, to pursue a different life high in the trees of the Pacific Northwest.

    We live a simpler life now. Older cars, only the basic gadgets, a small-secluded cabin, and we’re living the dream. Our dream.

    I’m the Ranger’s Wife, documenting our journey along the way. Creating community, inspiring others to dream, and raising our boys. Join me www.simplythewildside.net
