Responsive Parenting: Principles for Raising Connected and Healthy Kids by Boyd Brooks

Parenting is a daunting task, especially if you’re young and inexperienced. Today many parents find themselves disconnected from their children and overwhelmed with a sense of helplessness. There are two basic approaches to parenting that can be used— reactive parenting and responsive parenting.Reactive parenting, so prevalent in today’s society, is done in reaction to something, whether a whining child or a parent’s own anxiety. It is impulsive and produces poor results. As more and more young people reach adulthood without an adequate model of self-regulation and conflict resolution, the more visible this problem becomes.On the other hand, Responsive Parenting, as described in Boyd’s book, is a principled approach to parenting. It emphasizes the importance of preparing children for adulthood. Responsive parenting is thoughtful and is in response to the child’s best interests. It takes the long view. It listens and clarifies. It apologizes and forgives. It is flexible and extends freedom with responsibility. It is accepting and affirming while being connected and supportive.Boyd Brooks shows readers through easy to understand biblical principles how to build self-esteem and confidence in their children and help them discover who they were meant to be.“GET the book. READ the book. APPLY the book. The results will be measurable today as well as tomorrow!” —Robert J. Strand, multiple best-selling author“If you are a parent with growing children…it will help you be a better parent!” —Dr. George Wood, former General Superintendent, Assemblies of God

Double Dose: Craving My Husband’s Twin Brother by Aleta Williams and Apryl Cox

Has being selfish ever cost you? Do you ever regret being foolishly in love? Why is it that when we know something isn’t good for us we indulge until it makes us sick? These are the questions Nivea, Coco, and Brandy ask.Nivea has two lovers and she loves them both the same. No matter how hard she tries to live up to her marriage vows to JayVon Deeds, her desire for another seems to make it impossible. Will Nivea’s betrayal destroy her perfect marriage?Some would say that Coco is the baby-momma from hell. She’s insecure and quick to fly off-the-handle, but blame it on the man who she’s given her all to—TrayVon Deeds. He’s disrespectful; he neglects her; and he loves her, but he’s not in love with her. He may not have come out and said it, but his actions prove it all. Will Coco get tired of his selfishness, lies, and disrespect, or will she ride until the wheels fall off?Brandy lives to be the best mother she can be to her son. Her desire is to give him what she had as a child—love—and what she didn’t have a—two-parent home. She works as an RN for the County of Los Angles, and she and her baby-daddy live together. Unfortunately, she’s a casualty of generational curses; just like her mom, she’s in an unhealthy relationship. She can’t decide if she wants out . . . Until she meets one of the Deeds brothers, and he begins to remind her of her worth. Will his words of wisdom be enough to make her want out?These three women have different stories; however, they have one thing in common: the Deeds brothers—JayVon and TrayVon.

Caring for an elderly parent can be extremely challenging. The role reversal involved is emotionally and intellectually demanding, and many caregivers find themselves unprepared to undertake such a difficult task.In Trading Places: Becoming My Mother’s Mother, author Sandra Bullock Smith shares her personal experiences spending ten years caring for her ailing mother.

In a very real sense, the two women traded places. Smith found herself uttering phrases she heard all too often as a child, such as, “Don’t give your food to the dog” and, “You’ve had enough sugar today.” Smith began jotting down the things she said, and thus this charming book was born.Filled with respect, compassion, and love, this uplifting and amusing memoir is for anyone involved in elder care or who may face the role in the future.

Pride and Prejudice (Wisehouse Classics – with Illustrations by H.M. Brock) by Jane Austen and H. M. Brock

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is a novel of manners by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the British Regency. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, Mr. Bennet living in Longbourn.Set in England in the early 19th century, Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet’s five unmarried daughters after the rich and eligible Mr. Bingley and his status-conscious friend, Mr. Darcy, have moved into their neighborhood. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy has difficulty adapting to local society and repeatedly clashes with the second-eldest Bennet daughter, Elizabeth.Pride and Prejudice retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of “most loved books”. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, selling over 20 million copies, and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen’s memorable characters or themes.

Trust Issues: Manage the Anxiety, Insecurity and Jealousy in Your Relationship, With 10 Simple Steps – 5th Edition by Jessica Riley

Trust Issues: Manage the Anxiety, Insecurity and Jealousy in Your Relationship, With 10 Simple Steps
Free bonus! Get limited time offer, Get your BONUS right NOW!
Are you tired of failed romantic relationships and friendships? Have your previous partners told you that you are “too possessive” or “jealous”? Do you feel yourself burn with jealousy when you see your partner talking with some attractive acquaintance? Do you go through your partner’s things or demand detailed explanations of where they have been?
Most people know this isn’t the foundation for successful relationships, and they would like to stop reacting this way, but how? Author Jessica Riley outlines a 10-step plan for overcoming these hang-ups in her new e-book Trust Issues.

Riley pulls no punches here – she gets straight to the heart of the problem from the first chapter. She addresses right from the start your thinking process, which is leading you to exhibit your possessive behavior.

However, Riley is careful to explain the difference between our thinking and our actions. If that sounds too obvious, remember that your goal is to decrease the actions you’re taking that are toxic to your relationships (the thoughts you are having may not feel good, but the problems with your partner don’t start until you start acting on those thoughts).

Trust Issues begins with some questions for the reader’s personal reflection, so you may want to have your journal handy as you read. These questions will start you on your journey to improved relationships with some knowledge about yourself.

Armed with the answers to these questions, you can move into Riley’s chapter on why you have difficulties believing what you’re partner is saying to you. This will be a huge chapter for you if you’re struggling with over-possessiveness, because your partners statements (“I’m working late tonight,” or “That was my mom on the phone,”), are often the flashpoints for conflict. If you want to see instantaneous improvement in your relationship, follow every word of this chapter, and you will have it!

But Trust Issues is not a band-aid solution: Riley takes you into the dangerous process of comparison with others – an almost universal issue for those that suffer from repeated bouts of jealousy. She offers a brilliant strategy for handling it, too, which is yet another takeaway from Trust Issues.

Many of you will get to Riley’s chapter entitled “Be Prepared to Lose Your Partner” and think, What?? No, that’s not what I want! But do not despair. In this chapter, you are about to learn one of the most valuable secrets of human relationships there is!

Riley also includes a chapter on how to recoup from losing your cool when you see with your eyes behaviour in your partner that you do not like and is setting your jealousy meter in the red zone (and that’s when the real crises happen). She clearly outlines what to do, and just as importantly, what not to do.

Do you often imagine your partner cheating? Riley’s book has you covered there too, with an entire chapter devoted to getting your often fictional thoughts under control. Wouldn’t you rather think about something else anyway?

The Curtain – A Novel by Patrick Ord and Dave King

THE CURTAIN – A NOVEL SYNOPSIS:Have you met Henry Maddox? He knows you — not personally of course… he really only knows your data. But from that data he actually may know you better than you think you know yourself. Henry knows where you’ve been and what you’ve bought. He knows all of your friends. Henry not only knows your behaviors, he understands your tendencies. And from those tendencies, he can predict what you’re going to do before you’ve actually done it. Who is Henry Maddox? He is a 21st century marketing consultant and he specializes in highly personal and irresistibly persuasive advertising. Henry’s strategies combine modern data mining (Big Data) techniques with other advanced and controversial marketing practices (Market Fragmentation, Cross Promotion, and Conglomerate Propagandizing) to the point where consumers don’t even know their being sold. Businesses love Henry because he not only moves product, he actually controls their customers. But when Henry is forced to face how his techniques affect real people, he realizes he has inadvertently given corporations the power to destroy society for their own ends.THE CURTAIN explores the effect that increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques have on communities, families, and individuals. In an age of digital distractions, who remembers the transcendent morality that has allowed past civilizations to prosper? When corporations have the influence and motive to define people by what they consume, are we as individuals losing the substance of who we really are?THE CURTAIN is entertaining, fun, thought provoking, educational, and frightening. Ord’s storytelling is brilliant and his research extraordinary. THE CURTAIN is a must read for anyone that watches television or movies, listens to the radio, accesses the internet, logs into social media, has a smart phone, participates in loyalty card programs, or uses GPS technology. In short, THE CURTAIN is for everyone.
