The Winning Family: Increasing Self-Esteem in Your Children and Yourself


"I have written for you the book I wish had been available to me twenty years ago and to my mother forty years ago, and to her mother before that." That's a very different way to begin a book about parents and children, but it reflects Louise Hart's deep conviction that each generation has a powerful effect on subsequent generations. To alter or lessen this effect, parents must decide what outcomes they want and actually change what they can to bring that about. Self-esteem is a great gift that every parent can give to or develop with their children. This comprehensive and supportive book offers a new, hopeful model for families, one characterized by joy and satisfaction. Reviews:"Uniquely inspiring, accessible, and non-guilt-provoking!"-Mothering Magazine"I like this book!"- Dr. Berry Brazelton, Pediatrician and Author of Touchpoints"A wealth of forthright information"-Parenting Magazine"Life is a labor pain. This book can help you be a successful midwife to self-creation."-Bernie Siegel, author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles"The Winning Family is a book you will return to again and again for Hart's reassuring words, lighthearted confidence in the love of parents for their children, and down-to-earth ideas about making the parenting journey a path of self-discovery."-Julianne Idleman, Hand in Hand Parenting"This is 'must reading' for all caregivers of children. I read it cover-to-cover in one day."-Sandra Gellert, National Association for Family Day Care"As a parent educator for 28 years I have read every parenting book available.

Pictures of the Mind: What the New Neuroscience Tells Us about Who We Are


Neuroscientists once believed your brain was essentially "locked down" by adulthood. No new cells. No major changes. If you grew up depressed, angry, sad, aggressive, or nasty, you'd be that way for life. And, as you grew older, there'd be nowhere to go but down, as disease, age, or injury wiped out precious, irreplaceable brain cells. But over the past five, ten, twenty years, all that's changed. Using fMRI and PET scanning technology, neuroscientists can now look deep inside the human brain and they've discovered that it's amazingly flexible, resilient, and plastic. "Pictures of the Mind: What the New Neuroscience Tells Us About Who We Are" shows you what they've discovered and what it means to all of us. Through author Miriam Boleyn-Fitzgerald's masterfully written narrative and use stunning imagery, you'll watch human brains healing, growing, and adapting to challenges. You'll gain powerful new insights into the interplay between environment and genetics, begin understanding how people can influence their own intellectual abilities and emotional makeup, and understand the latest stunning discoveries about coma and "locked-in" syndrome. You'll learn about the tantalizing discoveries that may lead to cures for traumatic brain injury, stroke, emotional disorders, PTSD, drug addiction, chronic pain, maybe even Alzheimer's. Boleyn-Fitzgerald shows how these discoveries are transforming our very understanding of the "self," from an essentially static entity to one that can learn and change throughout life and even master the art of happiness.

And I Will Make Thee Whole: Helping Families with Mental Health Concerns


And I Will Make Thee Whole tells us that mental illness can strike anyone. It addresses the stigma among Latter-day Saints that mental illness is due to sin or character weakness. This book erases the blame and shame that has existed for decades surrounding mental illness. The good news is that mental illness is biological-it is a disease, it is treatable, and most of the time, treatment works. Mental illness can affect us regardless of our status. Many thanks to the authors for bringing these stories of real life, real illness, to all of us. There is nothing quite so comforting as to know that we are not alone and we are not to blame.
