For Better or for Kids Book Excerpt:

The transition from “married” to “married with children” can be tough. Before they know it, a once youthful and energetic married couple finds themselves in a minivan loaded with noisy kids and littered with Cheerios, crusty Sippy cups, banana peels, and missing library books. As much as you love your children and work hard to nurture and train them for the future, the challenges that come with parenthood can make the “for better or for worse” promise a hard one to honor. For Better or For Kids will enable couples to: Build a God-centered marriage instead of a Child-centered or Me-centered marriage Avoid the dangers of spouse-neglect and self-neglect Effectively communicate in the chaos Explore ways to parent together as one team Find balance in the busyness For Better or For Kids is about remembering that even when you feel worn out, over-extended, and neglected, you promised to be a team. Marriage with kids may not always be what we expected, but it is good. We need to make a vow to love our spouse with kids in the house.

How to Beat A Woman at Her Own Games Book Excerpt:

In today's world, much unlike the world of long ago, before the 1980s--where women probably and seemingly didn't play as many games and didn't scheme as much as the women of today--one can clearly see, witness, and attest to the ever-present and overwhelming amount of game playing and scheming ways of most of the females we know, know of, see, and interact with on a day-to-day basis. Most every man, at one point or some point in his life, has fallen victim to a game or scheme of a female whom he has either tried to get with or hook up with, and many guys get hit with games and schemes even with those that they are married to or in relationships with. Practically no man is exempt. We all at some point will find ourselves faced with a woman whose sole purpose is to either go for what's in our pockets or bank accounts, or to try to get us to do something for them for free or to get us to buy them stuff without them appreciating it and then turning around and buying us stuff too as well. That's a big part of the world we live in as far as men interacting with women, and the sole purpose of this book is to at least get guys to recognize when they are being played and to not fall for the simple games that women play twenty-four hours a day.

Raising Musical Kids Book Excerpt:

Does music make kids smarter? At what age should a child begin music lessons? Where should you purchase an instrument? What should parents expect from a child's teachers and lessons? How can you get kids to practice? Raising Musical Kids answers these and many other questions as it guides parents through everything from assembling a listening library for kids, to matching a child's personality with an instrument's personality, to finding musical resources in your community. Knowing that children can—and often do—get most of their music education from their school, parent and educator Robert Cutietta explores the features and benefits of elementary and secondary school programs, and shows how parents can work with the schools to provide the best possible music program. Throughout the book, Cutietta emphasizes the joy of participating in music for its own sake. The first edition of Raising Musical Kids delighted and informed parents to equal degrees, and this fully-revised second edition is a book that parents everywhere will treasure as a complete road map for developing their child's musical abilities.

Beyond Dead End The Solo Careers of The Dead End Kids Book Excerpt:

No one exemplifies the angst of the Depression era street kid more than The Dead End Kids. They were the stars of Sidney Kingsley’s 1935 play, Dead End, and reprised their roles in Samuel Goldwyn’s 1937 Hollywood film version. The movie defined the theme of slum dramas for the juvenile rebellion films of subsequent decades. The Dead End Kids were Billy Halop, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Leo Gorcey, Gabriel Dell, and Bernard Punsly. The best of their films were the gangster movies where the boys collided with the likes of Humphrey Bogart in Dead End and Crime School, James Cagney in Angels with Dirty Faces and John Garfield in They Made Me a Criminal. They bandied about lightweights like Ronald Reagan in lackluster efforts like Hell’s Kitchen and Angels Wash Their Faces before being reformed by a military academy in On Dress Parade. Their original reign was short-lived, not because they ran out of steam but because they had to be toned down due to criticisms. It didn’t matter because The Dead End Kids mutated into several splinter groups that starred in various configurations of the original members for the next quarter century, carving out a unique niche in motion picture history. One of the uncharted tributaries of this history is the solo careers of the actors who played the Dead End Kids. There were careers of mixed blessings after the initial stardom and each member faced and dealt with the typecasting dilemma in different ways and various degrees of success. There was plenty of heartbreak and disappointment along a way that started with Dead End in 1935 and ended with Dr. Bernard Punsly’s death in 2004. Joseph Fusco's Beyond Dead End: The Solo Careers of The Dead End Kids chronicles a saga of mixed blessings, where each member faced and dealt with the typecasting dilemma in different ways and various degrees of success. 388 pages. Illustrated.

This volume offers both theoretical and research-based accounts from mothers in academia who must balance their own intricate knowledge of school systems, curriculum and pedagogy with their children’s education and school lives. It explores the contextual advantages and disadvantages of "knowing too much" and how this impacts children’s actions, scholastics and developing consciousness along various lines. Additionally, it allows teachers, administrators and researchers to critically examine their own discourses and those of their students to better navigate their professional and domestic roles. Gathering narratives from academic women in traditional and nontraditional maternal roles, this volume presents both contemporary and retrospective experiences of what it’s like to raise children amidst educational and sociocultural change.

Eating Guide for Fussy Kids Book Excerpt:

"While a bit uneven, this vivid work delivers a smorgasbord of practical ideas and fun recipes." – Kirkus Review How can I make sure that my child is well nourished? How can I restore good relations between parents and children in our family?” Only people with a first-hand experience with fussy and picky children can fully grasp the challenge for the family. In this guide, three renowned professionals join forces to help families deal effectively with the issue: Pavlos Sakkas, a professor of psychiatry, analyses step by step how the family meal may well turn into a conflict between child and parents, emphasises the danger of the ever-lurking anorexia nervosa and shows how to eliminate these issues. George Moustakas, a paediatrician, offers helpful information and tips for children's nourishment and redeems the reputation of tasty foods such as butter, chocolate, salt, etc. Eirini Togia, the internationally famous and global award-winning chef better known as "Rena tis Ftelias", shares Mediterranean-style recipes that appeal even to the fussiest children. The guide is also a source of practical, hands-on tips and insights described through real-life personal stories of adults who had been fussy themselves or who had picky children. The experts’ comments on the stories shed more light and reveal hidden aspects. Finally, the book provides useful advice gleaned from recent academic studies, surveys, and researches, a world bibliography, and guidelines from the National Health System in the UK (NHS Choices). Editor's preface It is not by coincidence that the authors and the editor of this book are all of the Mediterranean origins. In this part of the world, food is a severe issue! The same applies to the family. And they are best expressed together on the occasion of a joyful family feast. So, in the Mediterranean culture, a picky or fuzzy eater is a matter of concern that is worthy of attention. A holistic approach was the concept of the first edition, published earlier this year in Greece. It aimed to help expand a child’s appetite as well as to highlight the family dynamics that may trigger this kind of behaviour. The success of the first Greek edition as well as substantial research evidence suggesting that these issues are, after all, common around the world, led us to this enhanced international publication in the English language. Introduction If you are reading this book, there is a good chance you may feel challenged by a child’s eating behaviour. What is a fussy or a picky eater? Is there a difference with neophobia? Yes, there is. What is the primary root of the problem? Parents' behaviour and their relationship with their children. Do you know that if you change the colours and taste, with appropriate preparation, of the main foods that are usually rejected by picky children, the same children will eat them up? These are only some of the topics covered in the following chapters of this guide: Fundamental rules for parents to obtain and increase skills in building consistent and straightforward behaviours in their children with delicacies and children-friendly decorated dishes. Parents' anxiety control and their knowledge about the phenomenon and its types and what is normal or not remain a key. Because the solution requires knowledge of the problem for the parent to ask for help promptly from a doctor who is the only person and professional that can help solve this issue. This is the goal of this guide which covers eating difficulties from toddler age through to adolescence in five sections. KIRKUS REVIEW "Three experts present a guide that’s part cookbook and part advice for worried parents. Bubbling with hands-on tips for coaxing stubborn children to eat, this cheerful manual for parents garners information from sources like Britain’s National Health Service. Divided into five easy-to-read parts, the volume provides many color photographs from various sources of expressive kids and delectable dishes scattered throughout the pages. Section 1 features compelling testimony of a childhood eating disorder suffered by Sakkas (Revealing Psychiatry, 2015), a psychiatry professor from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. But his dark tone may startle some when he writes that in a family power struggle, children who won’t eat are “perverts” who are willing to suffer to punish their parents. Continuing the discussion, pediatrician Moustakas suggests using the senses—and a variety of colors—to induce children to eat. The debut author notes that kids love to touch their food, so anything too “hard or gluey” could be displeasing to them. Perhaps surprising to some, butter and sea salt are offered as “necessary” ingredients for children’s health. Section 2 presents 30 kid-friendly recipes—including veggie burgers, cheese cupcakes, pizza, and omelet wraps—by chef Togia (A Taste of Greece!, 2014, etc.). Her pleasant dishes, like savory “Granny’s meatballs,” could make little mouths water. Likewise, kids who help prepare creative concoctions, such as the egg-based “Toasted smiley face,” are more likely to be enthusiastic eaters. Written in a friendly, first-person voice, the guide provides recipe instructions that are clear and concise. But some recipes, such as “Chocolate cookies,” require knowledge of grams or kilograms—and will likely be confusing for readers who measure with cups or pounds. Inspired by Togia, a dad shares his own recipe ideas in Section 3—for example, pizza with vegetables. In Section 4, Sakkas returns with a thoughtful analysis of an eating disorder. After supplying 15 obvious tips—including that parents should remain calm—this well-referenced volume concludes with a useful glossary and appendices for further reading. While a bit uneven, this vivid work delivers a smorgasbord of practical ideas and fun recipes."

Child Poverty in New Zealand Book Excerpt:

Jonathan Boston and Simon Chapple have written the definitive book on child poverty in New Zealand. Dr Russell Wills, Children’s Commissioner Between 130,000 and 285,000 New Zealand children live in poverty, depending on the measure used. These disturbing figures are widely discussed, yet often poorly understood. If New Zealand does not have ‘third world poverty’, what are these children actually experiencing? Is the real problem not poverty but simply poor parenting? How does New Zealand compare globally and what measures of poverty and hardship are most relevant here? What are the consequences of this poverty for children, their families and society? Can we afford to reduce child poverty and, if we can, how? Jonathan Boston and Simon Chapple look hard at these questions, drawing on available national and international evidence and speaking to an audience across the political spectrum. Their analysis highlights the strong and urgent case for addressing child poverty in New Zealand. Crucially, the book goes beyond illustrating the scale of this challenge, and why it must be addressed, to identifying real options for reducing child poverty. A range of practical and achievable policies is presented, alongside candid discussion of their strengths and limitations. These proposals for improving the lives of disadvantaged children deserve wide public debate and make this a vitally important book for all New Zealanders.

Using research, humor, and feisty common sense, the book shows: How parents can reject the media message, “Your child is in horrible danger!” How schools can give students more independence -- and what happens when they do.

How everyone can relax and successfully navigate a judge-y world filled with way too many warnings, scolds and brand new fears Perfect for parents and guardians of children of all ages, Free-Range Kids will also earn a place in the libraries of K-12 educators who want their students to blossom with newfound confidence and cheer.

Rethinking Children s Rights Book Excerpt:

Rethinking Children's Rights explores attitudes towards and experiences of children's rights. Phil Jones and Sue Welch draw on a wide range of thought, research and practice from different fields and countries to debate, challenge and re-appraise long held beliefs, attitudes and ways of working and living with children. This second edition contains updated references to legislation and research underpinning children's rights, reflecting on recent scholarship and on the current world context. New research and examples are discussed around: - online protection and privacy - evaluating UK progress and the children's rights review by the United Nations - recent insights on the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) - new debates about the construction and development of children's rights - new debates about the relationships between social exclusion and children's rights Recent developments in the definition of rights are considered from a variety of perspectives and in relation to different arenas of children's lives. This second edition brings an increased focus on exploring the notion of disjunction between the rhetoric of policy and legislation and the enacted and perceived experiences of children's rights. Themes discussed include power relations between adults and children, the child's voice, intercultural perspectives, social justice, gender and disability. Examples of research, activities, interviews with researchers and guidance on further reading make this an essential text for those studying childhood.
