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.
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.

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.
A companion title to The Social Baby, The Social Toddler offers the reader an in-depth look at the world of pre-school children through clear text and video-stills.

-The worldwide bestseller and multiple award winning-The Wonder Weeks - How to stimulate your baby's mental development and help him turn his 10 predictable, great, fussy phases into magical leaps forward The Wonder Weeks describes the incredible mental developmental changes (leaps) and regression periods that all babies go through. Understanding the real reason behind crying, eating and sleeping problems is the only real solution every parent needs. The Wonder Weeks reveals what's going on inside baby's mind. Including a bonus chapter with everything about the relationship between sleep and leaps, as well as unique insight into your baby's sleeping behavior. The book includes: o Week-by-week guide to baby's behavior o When to expect the fussy behavior, what this implies (cranky, clingy, crying (the three C's) behavior) and how to deal with these regression periods (leaps) o A description from your baby's perspective of the world around him and how you can understand the changes he's going through o Fun games and gentle activities you can do with your child o Unique insight into your baby's sleeping behaviour The book is based on the scientific- and parental-world-changing discovery of a phenomenon: all normal, healthy babies appear to be more fussy at very nearly the same ages, regression periods, and sleep less in these phases. These age-related fluctuations in need for body contact and attention (regression periods) are related to major and quite dramatic changes in the brains of the children. These changes enable a baby to enter a whole new perceptual world and, as a consequence, to learn many new skills. This should be a reason for celebration, but as far as the baby is concerned these changes are bewildering. He's taken aback-everything has changed overnight. It is as if he has woken up on a strange planet. He needs you to guide him and understand what he is going through! Get ready to rediscover the world all over again with your baby... Bonus: Sleep, and the lack of sleep... that's something we all have to deal with when we have a baby. The bonus chapter includes everything about the relationship between sleep and leaps, as well as unique insight into your baby's sleeping behavior. Hint: did you know your baby learns (and there's a lot of brain activity) during those little, 'light' sleeps?

Diabled women challenge rigid, limiting views of what it means to be a disabled woman, and of what a parent is and does.

She offers practical tips and guidance to help parents through the challenges of the middle years, including: -- Creative solutions for common discipline issues -- Helpful routines for busy households to strengthen family bonds -- Suggested responses to tricky childhood questions -- Sensitive advice to help children manage anger and anxiety Growing Children, Thriving Children empowers parents to navigate the middle years with confidence.
