When a family brings a new baby home, there are many changes. Older siblings may find it hard to understand the needs of the new baby, as well as the demands placed on mom and dad. Based on the attachment-parenting theories of the foremost authorities on parenting and childcare, William Sears, M.D., and Martha Sears, R.N., this book clearly explains baby's needs. The text emphasizes how siblings can be helpers to both baby and parents, while forging their own relationships with "their baby," and outlines the positive aspects of being an older girl or boy. Here is a warm, insightful book that will help the whole family joyously and lovingly welcome the newest member into their lives.

School leaders who succeed at creating a high-achieving learning community must also be committed to creating an equitable environment for all students.

Readers learn directly from experts in each of the content domains (literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, music, early childhood, special education, English language learners, world languages, and physical education) how a commitment to social justice and equity can be grounded in core subject areas, why each has a place in the school, and what they need to know and do in each subject area. This book is a critical instructional leadership resource for new and veteran principals who want to see all students succeed. Contributors: Antonio J.

Babies Need Mothers How Mothers Can Prevent Mental Illness in their Children is a rare example of careful conceptual reasoning about basic categories in medicine. Ultimately this is what is sorely needed in rational thinking about the mysteries of mental illness. This book is a fascinating contribution and well worth reading, precisely because it upsets the applecart. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get beyond rigid categorization in psychiatry and look at enduring problems of the mind in new ways. Raymond Moody, Author, Life After Life; MD, Psy.D, PhD Philosophy Dr. McKenzies book is revolutionary. Some long sought answers to causes of psychosis and other severe mental illnesses are explained in clear and understandable language. He not only describes cause and effect, but also provides clear remedies for healing that are unique and long lasting. He shows clearly and unmistakably the way to recover health, and his findings could change the prevailing way of treating chronic mental difficulties. Harold Stern, PhD, Psychoanalyst This book is a further development of ideas described in Delayed Posttraumatic Stress Disorders from Infancy: The Two Trauma Mechanism by Clancy D. McKenzie, MD and Lance S. Wright, MD. I have used this latter book in my courses at Georgetown University, in courses on the family and courses on philosophy of psychoanalysis. The ideas of the book were enlightening, stimulative and provocative. I plan to continue to use the ideas of Dr. McKenzie in my classes. In his new book Dr. McKenzie makes recommendations about child rearing practices. His new book is rich in ideas and promises a fruitful debate about the psychological origins of mental illness. No one will regret reading this book. Wilfried Ver Eecke Professor in Philosophy Adjunct Professor in Psychology Georgetown University

Does it affect your baby if you are depressed or stressed out? Is it OK to leave your baby alone to cry? What is the role of a father? How can you create a good bond between you and your baby? For how long should you be apart from your baby during the first year? These are just a few of the many questions that all new parents face. But, at last, "Babies in Mind" is here to help you. Backed by extensive research as well as clinical and personal experience, psychologist Jenny Perkel gently guides you in deciding what is best for both you and your baby. Being a new parent is immensely challenging. Not only do you have to handle your baby's physical needs but you have to attend to your baby's psychological, needs too. Babies in Mind is the only book that explains how to give babies in their first year of life what they really need from a purely psychological perspective. Written for both mothers and fathers, the book is informed by psychological and medical research which shows that emotional difficulties in later life can sometimes have their roots in infancy. The way in which babies are handled and related to by their caregivers has a direct and powerful link to the kind of people they will grow into. This book is for parents who are mindful of their baby's psychological needs.

Freedom from Toxic Relationships

A guide to leaving painful, destructive relationships behind—both at home and at work Toxic relationships often come disguised as seemingly normal ones. These subtly destructive relationships are characterized by the slow erosion of self-esteem, a loss of personal identity, or a growing desire to please friends, partners, and family members who are impossible to please. In this uplifting and informative book, transpersonal psychotherapist Avril Carruthers will take a close look at adult relationships to show why we get involved in toxic relationships in the first place, and instruct the reader on how to recognize if they’re involved in one. Once the toxic relationship is identified, the author shows the reader how to begin their journey toward healing and how to meet the world with a new kind of confidence, so that the cycle of toxic relationships can be broken once and for all. What Carruthers teaches is just how possible it can be to learn how to recognize the manipulative or sweetly corrosive partner, the family dynamics that make Christmas and other get-togethers seem like hell, or the nightmare boss who causes daily torment—and that we can learn to leave these painful, destructive patterns behind forever.

'I can't emphasise enough how great What Mothers Do is' Emma Barnett 'The best book on parenting' Guardian 'Naomi Stadlen's What Mothers Do makes you feel like a million dollars' Zoe Williams Have you ever spent all day looking after your baby or young child - and ended up feeling that you have 'done nothing all day'? Do you sometimes find it hard to feel pleased with what you are doing, and tell yourself you should achieve more with your time? Maybe it's because you can't see how much you are doing already. In this unique and perceptive look at mothering, Naomi Stadlen draws on many years' work with hundreds of other mothers of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds. She explores mothers' experiences to reveal what they - and you - are doing when it may look, to everyone else, like nothing. If you are a mother, and have ever felt: that nobody understands what you do all day; overwhelmed by your feelings for your baby; tired all the time; that nothing prepared you for motherhood; uncertain what your baby seems to want; short-tempered with your partner - you will find this the most reassuring book you have ever picked up.

For herein Fortune shows herself to be more kind Than is her custom. That's Shakespeare. In case you're wondering. If you were Delilah "Baby" Sampson, you'd already know that. Delilah got hooked on the Bard back in college. Then she briefly got hooked on Singapore Sling cocktails. And then she got tossed out of school. Yes, when Delilah discovers something she likes, she really sticks with it. These days, her addictions include sudoku, lime diet cola and now…Jimmy Choos. Oh, Baby's gotta have those shoes! But on her window-washer salary, $700 for one pair is a stretch. Which leads us to her latest obsession…gambling. With an impromptu posse, including an elderly movie star, two Brazilian lesbians and Hillary Clinton (no, not that one!), Delilah hits the casinos and discovers that she's a natural-born high-roller. Every win puts her closer to those beloved Choos. And as the "21s" keep dropping, so do the men…right at her feet. But for a girl who never knows when to fold 'em, gambling and casino guys are not healthy habits. She could end up losing her shirt, her head…and a whole lot more.

For Our Babies

For the last forty years, J. Ronald Lally has worked with state and federal agencies to improve services for infants and toddlers in the United States and abroad. In this new book, Lally paints a stark picture of how our babies have been forced to shoulder the fallout of massive societal changes over the past 60 years—changes that have resulted in less access to their parents, longer time spent in child care, and substandard child care and services. For Our Babies features the resonant voices of American parents speaking of their hopes, worries, and frustrations living in a country with too few parental and child supports. It describes American parents’ general lack of awareness about how little they receive from their state and federal governments compared to parents living in other countries. This important book includes crucial testimony from developmental psychologists, child care providers, health and mental health professionals, economists, specialists in brain development, and early learning educators about how policy and practices must change in the United States if parents are to raise children who will become healthy, productive members of society. This book is part of the For Our Babies initiative. Visit the website, which includes an author blog, at www.forourbabies.org. J. Ronald Lally is the co-director of the Center for Child and Family Studies at WestEd, an educational research and development laboratory in San Francisco. He created the Program for Infant and Toddler Care and is one of the founders of Zero to Three: National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families. “Lally is right. Our economy and our society will be stronger if public policies do more to help raise healthy babies. I applaud his tireless efforts to increase national awareness about the critical importance of improving early childhood development for all families.” —U.S. Congressman George Miller (D-CA-11) “Dr. Lally’s book sensitively captures the tension in knowing that infants at birth are both full of unlimited developmental potential and at the same time desperately dependent on their surroundings. And, thankfully, it is filled with ways to act on his informed and urgent plea for action to change policy and practice.” —Carol Brunson Day, President, Brunson Phillips & Day, Inc. “Professor Lally draws on a lifetime of working with infants to review and synthesize the research about the importance of the first 3 years of life, and what babies need—especially from their relationships with parents and caregivers—to thrive developmentally and socially. He then paints a disturbing picture of how present policies are failing young children—the invisible neglect. This book is a ‘must read’ for all who care about young children and their future.” —Frank Oberklaid, Director, Centre for Community Child Health, Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne “This is a clarion and moving call on behalf of our most vulnerable and valuable citizens, our amazing babies. It gathers together the freshest and broadest knowledge of what they need to flourish and contrasts this to the myriad ways our policies and practices consistently fail them. For Our Babies is an energizing, enlightening, and wholly loving book.” —Jeree Pawl, Clinical Pyschologist, Board of Directors, Zero to Three “Lally and others, including some of the economists cited in this book, have shown how investments in quality early education and preventive healthcare will more than pay for themselves when children reach adulthood. . . . This book is a starting place for urgently needed dialogue that will finally lead to action.” —From the Foreword by T. Berry Brazelton and Joshua Sparrow, Harvard University

Breastfeeding. This book is to give mothers some information about what to expect after her baby is born. With simple explanations about why things are done to the mother and her baby without complicated and confusing medical wording. It’s as simple as I could make it. The following pages are based on my many years of experience as a post-partum nurse and covers many of the questions I receive on a daily basis with a focus on breastfeeding. The following pages are Pearls of wisdom and additional tips to help you and your new baby start your family off by putting your best foot forward. Congratulations on your little miracle or miracle’s and best wishes for the future. You may also find useful information in the following books. After delivery...What to expect after your miracle has arrived. First days home...What to expect after your miracle has arrived Breastfeeding… What to expect after your miracle has arrived. Breast feeding is a great way to connect with your newborn. It helps to build and strengthen the mother baby bond. The milk you make is the best food for your baby. It has all the stuff your baby needs to grow and stay healthy. Let’s start by talking about colostrum. Even in a small amount it gives the baby a lot of good nutrition and helps protect it from illness. It helps your baby stay healthy by giving your baby some of your own immunity from disease. Colostrum made when you're pregnant and at 2 to 3 days after birth. It is made in small amounts. This is perfect for your baby because its stomach is really small at that time. Many mothers have the common worry about how much her baby is eating. It is a normal fear that most mothers have. The baby has brown fat that it uses for energy and it swallows a lot of fluid during birth. It will use both for energy while its learning to breast feed. If you’re concerned you can supplement with donor breast milk or formula if you want. It is recommended that you supplement after feedings and try to use a breast pump and supplement your own breast milk after every feeding. Remember breast feed first then pump then supplement what you pump if you don’t have extra milk from a earlier time. Remember breastfeeding is natural but not easy. You will have a learning curve. You will learn how to feed your baby and he/she is learning how to eat for the first time. Frustration and worry is normal for any mother who will breastfeed. Remember to just keep trying and stay at it. It takes time and practice. The baby has never done this before so it’s learning everything. When you finally get it it’s a beautiful way to bond with your child and is worth all the hard work.

They had so many questions and no one to turn to for answers. "Transplant? What does that mean? What does that entail? What should we do?" The Owens relate in "My Child Needs a Transplant, Now What?" how they and their adolescent daughter, Jessica, bravely pioneered new and terrifying territory that included three transplant surgeries, multiple near-death experiences, and last-minute, heaven-sent miracles; and they felt they were doing it all alone. "My Child Needs a Transplant, Now What?" was written so others facing the same struggles won't have to feel alone, unprepared, or uneducated. They want everyone to understand that even in the darkest times, faith and strength will get you through.
