Love In The Time Of Contempt - Consolations For Parents Of Teenagers (Paperback): Joanne Fedler Love In The Time Of Contempt - Consolations For Parents Of Teenagers (Paperback)
Joanne Fedler 1
R225 R179 Discovery Miles 1 790 Save R46 (20%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

In Love In The Time Of Contempt Joanne Fedler won’t tell you how to be the ‘perfect’ parent. She’s not a psychologist or an academic. But she is the mother of two teenagers, and she knows how it feels to be the parent of someone sprouting hair, zits and attitude all over the place.

This is a gritty, hilarious look at the day-to-day interactions with teenagers, and the tussled, frazzled and complex business of remaining mature while supporting someone to become an adult.

Fedler shares her philosophy that we are meant to parent imperfectly – our mistakes are the start of the important conversations we need to have with our kids. She guides us through enduring intermittent bouts of contempt and not taking it personally, picking the fights that are worth having, and surviving the journey from frustration, to confusion, to elation and back again.

Love In The Time Of Contempt is a funny, poignant account of the dramas and delights of parenting teenagers who know it all, who don’t yet have a fully functioning brain and who desperately need us to parent them – just not in the way we’re used to.

In the newest edition of my Baby and Child Care Handbook, l have added Everything You Need To Know About Pregnancy. Pregnancy was always a part of the book, but recently there has been a great increase worldwide of various infections during pregnancy. Not only is a womanís system more than twenty per cent more vulnerable during pregnancy, but bacteria, viruses, parasites and toxins found in food are a problem. For example, even some cheeses that you enjoy will have to be avoided, and your loved cat may need to be ostracised because of the danger of transmitting toxoplasmosis infection. You will find a vast updated amount of important information that will hopefully protect the amazing system of life developing within you. You will also be updated on the latest medical information regarding the prevention of food allergies; by starting to feed your baby a variety of solids from four months. Even the belief that eggs, peanut and other problematic foods should not be given to the young, has been debunked. These, and many other important medical breakthroughs, mean that updated information is essential today.

Raising Girls in the 21st Century - Helping Our Girls to Grow Up Wise, Strong and Free (Paperback, New edition): Steve Biddulph Raising Girls in the 21st Century - Helping Our Girls to Grow Up Wise, Strong and Free (Paperback, New edition)

Steve Biddulph's Raising Boys was a global phenomenon. The first book in a generation to look at boys' specific needs, parents loved its clarity and warm insights into their sons' inner world. But today, things have changed. It's girls that are in trouble. There has been a sudden and universal deterioration in girls' mental health, starting in primary school and devastating the teen years. Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls is both a guidebook and a call-to-arms for parents. The five key stages of girlhood are laid out so that you know exactly what matters at which age, and how to build strength and connectedness into your daughter from infancy onwards. Raising Girls is both fierce and tender in its mission to help girls more at every age. It's a book for parents who love their daughters deeply, whether they are newborns, teenagers, young women - or anywhere in between. Feeling secure, becoming an explorer, getting along with others, finding her soul, and becoming a woman - at last, there is a clear map of girls' minds that accepts no limitations, narrow roles or selling-out of your daughter's potential or uniqueness. All the hazards are signposted - bullying, eating disorders, body image and depression, social media harms and helps - as are concrete and simple measures for both mums and dads to help prevent their daughters from becoming victims. Parenthood is restored to an exciting journey, not one worry after another, as it's so often portrayed. Steve talks to the world's leading voices on girls' needs and makes their ideas clear and simple, adding his own humour and experience through stories that you will never forget. Even the illustrations, by Kimio Kubo, provide unique and moving glimpses into the inner lives of girls. Along with his fellow psychologists worldwide, Steve is angry at the exploitation and harm being done to girls today. With Raising Girls he strives to spark a movement to end the trashing of girlhood; equipping parents to deal with the modern world, and getting the media off the backs of our daughters. Raising Girls is powerful, practical and positive. Your heart, head and hands will be strengthened by its message.

Healthy Food For A Healthy Baby - Monique le Roux Forslund
As a parent and a teacher, Monique le Roux Forslund has first-hand experience of the effect food has on children. She has seen how sugar and other fast-acting carbohydrates can cause them to become over-active and struggle with concentration. In Healthy Food For A Healthy Baby she shows you how to give your baby a healthy and nourishing start to life. In addition to the more than 100 easy recipes appropriate for babies aged six to 18 months, there are tips about natural good food to ensure that your child maintains all-round good health. Although this is not a ‘low carb high fat’ recipe book, the recipes do not include wheat fl our and sugar. In addition, there is information on encouraging your child to develop mealtime independence – aka baby-led weaning (BLW) – much sooner than you’d expect.

Cook Eat Love Grow - Louise Westerhout
Louise Westerhout delights in cooking for her son (as well as her family and friends) and seeing the results of good and wholesome food, as well as happy mealtimes. For her, cooking, eating and growing is an integral part of the fun of life. This philosophy is reflected in her ideas and recipes for meals for babies upwards of four months, as well as dishes suitable for the whole family. There is an emphasis on organic food and most of the 70-odd recipes are wheat- and sugar-free with many dairy-, egg- and gluten-free options as well. You will find new options and healthy combinations, using simple and inexpensive ingredients. The text encourages parents without being prescriptive, yet it is simple and practical to eliminate guesswork when it comes to feeding babies and children.

Friendship battles among children have existed since the words `you can't play with us' were first uttered in the playground. But the worry is that today it seems there is no minimum age limit to being hurtful to others. Unkind or exclusive behaviour appears to be starting sooner than ever - even in nursery school - and continues throughout the school system. As a result, friendship issues top the list of parents' concerns, and, from the other side of the school gates, they can often feel powerless. This book will change that as parenting writer Tanith Carey analyses the increasingly complex social pressures changing the face of childhood, having drawn on extensive research on children's friendships, from toddlers to teens. She offers practical solutions for building your child's social skills for a happier, more carefree childhood, including how to: Help your child deal with classroom and social media politics. Inoculate your child against the effects of peer-group pressure, cliquiness and exclusion. Learn what's really going on in your child's social circle. Bully-proof your child throughout school. Work out when to step in and step out of your child's conflicts. Help your child make friends if they are stuck on the sidelines. The Friendship Maze is suitable for ages three to sixteen.

When you're pregnant you think: `I'm having a baby', not a person who will eventually catch trains by themselves, share a fridge with ten strangers, go to a festival in Croatia without succumbing to a drug overdose, and one day, bring you a gin and tonic when your mother is dying. We imagine the teenage years as a sort of domestic meteor strike, when our dear, sweet child, hitherto so trusting and mild, is suddenly replaced by a sarcastic know-all who isn't interested in the wisdom we have to pass on. But with great honesty and refreshingly bracing wit, Stephanie Calman shows that adolescence in fact begins much earlier, around the age of seven. And having nurtured them through every stage of development, from walking to school by themselves to their first all-night party, you find yourself alone - bereaved even - as they skip off to university without a second glance. Candid, touching and very, very funny, Confessions of a Bad Mother: The Teenage Years offers hope to despairing and exhausted parents everywhere. Read it and discover that your teenager is not the enemy after all.

Jou kind word nie met 'n handboek gebore nie, en jy kry geen opleiding of kwalifikasies in kindgrootmaak nie. Dalk weet jy net jy wil nie jou kinders grootmaak soos jou ouers jou grootgemaak het nie, maar jy is ook nie seker wat die beste manier sal wees nie.

Baie ouers weet nie hoe belangrik hulle woorde en gedrag vir ʼn kind se breinontwikkeling is nie. Hulle besef nie dat ons vandag met ons kennis van neurowetenskap, verstandelike intelligensie en emosionele intelligensie ons kinders kan grootmaak om wonderlike, gelukkige en positiewe mense te wees nie.

Dr Pieter van Jaarsveld, ’n kenner op die gebied van emosionele intelligensie en positiewe denke, begelei jou deur goed begronde navorsing om jou kind se brein te verstaan en om jou kind se brein van vroeg af reg te bedraad met oefeninge en speletjies sodat jou kind ‘n gelukkige, gebalanseerde en florerende grootmens kan word. Hy behandel ook belangrike kwessies soos hoe om empatie te ontwikkel en hoe om dissipline aan te pak.
