Your Kids Are Your Own Fault Book Excerpt:

Read Larry Winget's posts on the Penguin Blog. Straight-talking, bestselling Pitbull of Parenting Larry Winget says "This is not a fix your kid book. It's a fix the way you parent book. You owe it to your kids to parent with a plan!" Being a parent is the toughest job in the world, especially with the increasing number of negative influences and pitfalls facing our kids today, from childhood obesity and out-of-control celebrity culture to the dangers of the internet and credit card debt. Larry Winget has never been one to shy away from tough truths, and what he says here may well be difficult for some parents to swallow: we are in the midst of a crisis with our kids. Kids today are over-indulged, over-entertained, under-achieving, and under-disciplined, with a sense of entitlement that is crippling society. And the real problem is that parents aren't paying attention to what's going on. If they were they would realize that most kids today barely read and write, except with their thumbs on their cell phones! Well-behaved, respectful kids are the exception, not the rule, and for the most part, parents are to blame. Responsible parenting is about beginning with the end in mind and parenting with a plan. But most parents have never stopped to consider what kind of adult they want to raise. They have all this fun creating a baby, but they don't have a plan for the end product. Larry's message to parents: Teach your kids to become the best adults they can be. But don't expect your kids to improve until you improve. Your Kids Are Your Own Fault covers familiar lessons and principles that have led Larry's readers to greater success with money, career, and goal setting, this time at a level where they can be taught to children. This book shows parents how to design the adult they want their kid to become and work backwards to make sure it happens. Kids don't come with an instruction manual, but finally being a parent does!

Women and Cultural Citizenship in Turkey Book Excerpt:

In 2005, a Turkish woman was shot dead by her son in an 'honour killing' for appearing on a popular women's talk show on television. The show invited ordinary women from lower socio-economic classes to speak of their experiences of family life: marriage, divorce, child custody rights and relations with in-laws. Here, Solen Sanli examines the diversification of mass media in Turkey following liberalization in the 1980s. Specifically looking at popular women's talk shows ("Woman's Voice" Television), she explores the way in which groups with political and cultural power control public discourse and the public sphere in Turkey, and how urban/rural and Islamist/secular oppositions play out. Sanli traces the development of mass media in Turkey, particularly television, and closely examining how narrations of violence against women are presented. "Women and Cultural Citizenship in Turkey" contains rigorous, topical and original insights relevant for a range of disciplines, such as Anthropology, Gender and Communication Studies, as well as those researching cultural and political participation in the Middle East.

Who s Really Running Your Life Fourth Edition Book Excerpt:

Links below will take you to the non-profit Break the Cycle! Web site. Use your browsers back button to return. Premise - psychological "wounding" is epidemic in America because of an unseen inherited cycle of ineffective parenting and ignorance. This book describes the wounds, what they mean, and what to do about them. This fourth edition (Feb. 2011) will introduce you to your inner family, and who leads it in calm and crisis times. If you dont know who comprises your inner crew or whos in charge of them, you may be living life as a hostage to a false self and not know it. If so, youre probably living well below your potential, and may also be wounding kids in your life without meaning to. The rest of the book outlines an effective way to reduce any significant wounds, and live a calmer, more authentic, productive, satisfying life. Notice your reaction to these proposals and to the books title. I suspect you think Well I am running my life! Sure - but have you ever thought about who I is? Reality check: Have you ever had experiences like these? Blowing hot and cold about someone or something? Saying On one hand, and on the other? Obsessively second-guessing (doubting) an important decision youve made? Having discussions or "arguments" with yourself inside your head? An inner voice ceaselessly berating you for being stupid, dumb, weird, or unlovable? Loved and hated someone at the same time? Wanted to do something and simultaneously not wanted to do it? Done something impulsive and later thought What got into me? Known people who seemed two-faced, talked out of both sides of their mouth, and like two different people? Felt young when around an authority figure or perhaps a critical parent? yellow or mean streak, a blue mood a musical side, a silver tongue, or a way with kids? These are everyday signs of an invisible condition that shapes the lives of you and everyone you know. Its based on a marvelous survival feature of our human neural system recently called multiplicity: our brains wired-in ability to respond to childhood environmental threat by fragmenting into regions with special abilities. Using radiographic PET scans, were the first generation in history to be able to see these regions operating concurrently. The unitary experience of I see my child laugh involves many regions of your brain at once without your knowing it. So does everything you do! Main Ideas This book results from my professionally studying and practicing inner family therapy ("parts work") since 1992. It describes what Ive come to believe without question about average women and men like you: Normal people have personalities that are composed of a group of subselves or parts, like members of an orchestra or athletic team. Each subself has its own talent or gift, its own values, goals, and limitations. Our inner families of subselves can range from harmonious to chaotic in calm and crisis times. The nature of our subselves and the relationships among them are determined in the first several years of life of average kids. If kids are

A daily kick in the pants from the Pitbull of Personal Development(r) and Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and New York Times bestseller Larry Winget.

The rest of us don't want to hear it, so don't feel compelled to share!" "Training is expensive. Books are expensive. Going to seminars is expensive. Being stupid is even more expensive." Blending longer observations with signature Winget quips, No Time for Tact is the perfect way to jump-start each day.
