The Co-Parenting Manifesto: Practical Tools to Lower Stress & Improve Cooperation

by Jon Peters

Finally! A book that avoids preachy idealism and provides the skills to turn conflict into cooperative co-parenting. Most parents know why they should get along and work together. Many have ideas about what that could look like when it improves. But, so many parents are mired in lasting conflict. Even otherwise functional parents, pointed in the right direction, and taking the right steps can feel like miserable failures when attempts to cooperate take a nose dive into hostility or poor communication. Written by a clinical social worker with over fifteen years of working with and providing seminars to separated parents, it focuses on how the stress and complications of post-separation issues undermine good attempts to cooperate. It provides practical skills that are the antidotes to the all-too-common pitfalls of separated parenting. Your children will thank you later for employing these strategies. Even if they don’t, you’ll experience relief from stress and have more of a sense of control over your co-parenting relationship. And, it will work even if your ex refuses to read it!

by Rosie Granger

â??Esperienza straordinaria o mistero? E’ una storia su quel “qualcosa di oltre” (soprannaturale) che non può essere spiegato dalla scienza. L’importanza dei nostri sogni, il corpo astrale, predizione del futuro, e presenze (poltergeist).
Un libro inusuale, che presenta il racconto autentico di una famiglia piccolo-borghese, con le sue piccole paradigmatiche storie, i suoi problemi, gioie, e dolori.

Su tutto, si erge la figura di zia Jessica, che diventa simile ad un guru spirituale per i membri della famiglia, ma anche per il lettore.
Zia Jessica è profetica, divinatrice, carismatica ma sopratutto saggia. I suoi insegnamenti rimangono indelebilmente impressi nella mente; la sua lucidità anche su argomenti cruciali come l’amore, la morte, l’emozione, e i figli prediletti riesce a stupirci.

Il racconto è scritto in maniera chiara e piacevole, con ricchezza di dettagli e intuizioni affascinanti – sembra un romanzo tanto è scorrevole, teso e drammatico, ma è storia vera, e perciò va dritta al cuore.

Toxic Friends and Other Friendships: A Candid Relationship Guide

by Charm Baker

Friendships and how to keep them are a popular topic with people all over the world. Everyone everywhere has at least one friendship that they really care about safeguarding. It doesn’t matter if the friend is a neighbor, co-worker, lover or even family member; there is usually one friend that we tend to value above the rest. But what happens when the friend (or friends) that we spend time trying to please, are people who are not really healthy for us? No matter how much we love them or how much fun they may be, a toxic friend is trouble, and you ultimately get hurt.

Toxic Friends and Other Friendships is a thought provoking guide for anyone who has a friend and is a friend. If you’ve ever felt like the person in the following excerpt, then you probably already know why this book says that: “Toxic friends are like a bad drug.”

“I was thinking about past friends and relationships that kind of fell by the wayside over the years. I thought about a former best friend that I had an encounter with that would sever a ten year relationship. I now know for a fact that she was a toxic friend. Oddly enough, out of all the people I’ve strayed away from and don’t talk to anymore, she’s the one I seem to miss the most.”

Check out some personal experiences from people who suffered from toxic friends. Tune in to a discussion about what most people perceive the word “friend” to mean, as evidenced by some popular television friendships. You can read about the differences between toxic friends and genuine friendship and afterwards see how your own friendships measure up. If you dare, see what the “Toxic Meter” has to say about “5 Simple Ways to Detect Toxicity.”
