A unique manual to raising a child—for parents everywhere—using the metaphor of dance to provide expert, comforting advice. Having children and raising a family should be the greatest joy in one’s life, but it is a role that requires tremendous responsibility and patience. As parents, our job is to provide a strong foundation for our children, so that they can eventually grow up to become self-sufficient adults. However, just like everything in life, all children are different, some requiring more support than others and to varying degrees over time. Parenting is like a dance between parent and child. The more seamless the movements, the more graceful the interaction. When a parent takes the lead or decides to share, over time with practice, the dance can be smooth and effortless. Nevertheless, when the child is unintentionally allowed to take the lead, the parent-child dance may appear more rocky and unstable. This often occurs when the parent is unclear and at odds with their role. The ensuing battle for the lead may cause disharmony in the relationship and the dance. Parenting is a lifelong commitment that takes patience, thoughtfulness, and skill. The Parent-Child Dance is designed to explain the concept of the dance and act as a catalyst for encouraging parents to begin their journey in making positive changes in their child’s life. Parents will recognize the scenarios and gain insight through humorous examples and step-by-step strategies to avoid disharmony.

"Life Lessons on Ice is a great tool for your young person to identify the deeper meaning of sports and it's value of participating and competing." Dwight Mullins, Head Coach, Dallas Stars Midget AAA Hockey Club A special note to parents. Youth Hockey, as is any youth sport, is a great way to teach your kids about life and the lessons they will encounter. Take the opportunity to use the game as a teaching tool. Show your kids what good sportsmanship is all about; don't just talk about it. Don't make excuses or place blame on someone else because of a loss. Don't put pressure on your kids to do something that if the truth were known you yourself would find hard to do. Talk to them about how important good character is on and off the ice. And most importantly, just like in real life, tell them that things will not always go the way they planned. Sometimes, you learn more from losing than from winning. A great thing to remember is that even when a sport isn't used to build character, it will definitely reveal it.

There is a huge category of sports fan: people who love a bloody good argument. Sport makes them think, engage and argue. Given that people already take sport so very seriously, and at such an intense level of enquiry, then Ed Smith concludes we should draw out some of sport's intellectual lessons and practical uses What Sport Teaches Us About Life gives us a rare glimpse into the world of sport as seen from an extraordinarily keen, and closely-involved observer. In one chapter Smith extols the virtues of amateurism in today's professional world; in another he explains why there'll never be another sportsman as dominant as Don Bradman. He unearths the hidden dimensions of England's 2005 Ashes win, examines the impact of the free market on cricket and football, argues that cheating is not always as clear cut as it might seem.

Christian student athletes helping each other overcome the daily challenges of high school sports so they can more easily reach their full potential.I wrote this book to help other athletes do better with whatever sport they're in not just football or track like I participate it, but any and all sports. We athletes invest a lot of time and effort into playing sports and having a social life and perform well in school so I thought that if I shared my failures and successes it might help someone else.I'm 15 and I know I am not the best writer and I probably have lots of poorly worded writing and misspellings, but don't let my mistakes stop you from getting a lot of valuable tips and help from this book.How to use this book:1.Read it and keep it throughout your playing season. I gave you a fill in the blank worksheet at the end of each chapter with my top 10 questions. Fill in the blanks to the questions, yeah it's ok to write in this book, so you can remind yourself how you handle the tougher times while you're playing.2.Then I hope you can just give the book to someone else, maybe a younger student that is struggling or needs some help. Giving them the book with your writing in it will help them out too.3.Then I'd like you to write your own book and this book will give you a head start. I gave you a bunch of questions and I am sure you can make ever more and even better questions for yourself. Then have someone ask you the questions and you answer the questions and record it and have it transcribed and then you've got the makings of your own book.

Why do we love sports so much? Perhaps it's because a basketball, baseball, or football game is like a miniature lifetime -- an unscripted, unpredictable drama where determination, adversity, persistence, exhilaration, and disappointment are all acted out in front of us. The last-second three-pointer. The ninth-inning grand slam. The fourth and goal to go with time running out. In so many ways, the drama of sports mirrors the drama of life, where we all strive to overcome adversity and defeat with courage and determination. Drawing from the observations and stories of coaches, players, Church leaders, and even a few personal experiences, John Bytheway presents life lessons from the wide world of sports that all will appreciate. (Parents will appreciate that he also includes a few lessons not to learn from sports, including boasting, taunting, and the like.) Athletes, former athletes, and armchair quarterbacks of all ages will enjoy Sports: Life Lessons from Court, Field, and Gridiron.

This is a story of passion and commitment and faith—qualities that drove one working-class kid to not only build a sports empire, but also to change the way the entire sports industry has done business. In How You Play the Game, Jerry Colangelo, in his own words, tells how he emerged from the tough streets of Chicago Heights as a high school and college sports he helped create and build the Chicago Bulls—at a time when the NBA was a second-tier professional league, and two basketball teams had already failed in the Windy he moved to Arizona and started the Phoenix Suns, an organization that fought its way to become the ninth richest franchise in all of sports...and how he then began baseball’s newest team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. This is a tale of determination, faith, and, most assuredly, good timing and good luck. In truth, this isn’t one story—but many. Jerry weaves together a lifetime of great moments in sports and tense times in business. Peppered with stories about players and coaches, including Charles Barkley and Connie Hawkins, Red Holzman, and Buck Showalter, as well as owners, general managers, investors, reporters, and more, How You Play the Game is truly an insider’s look at the sports world.

What is it that makes sports so entertaining and engaging? Unlike a movie or even a "reality" show, when you watch sports you are witnessing actual drama, struggle, triumph, and pain. This is unscripted and happening in real time. That's what makes sports as popular as it is. For anyone who has ever agonized at an injury, bad call, or loss, can attest, we become emotionally attached to what we are watching. We are literally watching a microcosm of life. We can relate because, whether we have been athletes or not, we have experienced many of the same trials and tribulations, victories and defeats, disappointments and elation, that we see on the "jumbo-tron." If you were an athlete, from "little leager" to pro, you had the good fortune to get an early glimpse of what life has to offer. The life lessons taken away from playing sports are many and varied and those lessons are the topic of this book. Every chapter is broken down into specific life skills and benefits derived from being involved in sports. There a two essays in each chapter condensing the views of the individual authors. We sincerely hope you are blessed by reading our book.
