In Time to Parent, the bestselling organizational guru takes on the ultimate time-management challenge—parenting, from toddlers to teens—with concrete ways to structure and spend true quality time with your kids. Would you ever take a job without a job description, let alone one that requires a lifetime contract? Parents do this every day, and yet there is no instruction manual that offers achievable methods for containing and organizing the seemingly endless job of parenting. Finding a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human often feels impossible, but Julie Morgenstern shows you how to harness your own strengths and weaknesses to make the job your own. This revolutionary roadmap includes: A unique framework with eight quadrants that separates parenting responsibilities into actionable, manageable tasks—for the whole bumpy ride from cradle to college. Simple strategies to stay truly present and focused, whether you’re playing with your kids, enjoying a meal with your significant other, or getting ahead on that big proposal for work. Clever tips to make the most of in-between time—Just 5-15 minutes of your undivided attention has a huge impact on kids. Permission to take personal time without feeling guilty, and the science and case studies that show how important self-care is and how to make time for it.

Communication is the key to peaceful, effective interactions between parents and children. When normal childhood behavior is viewed as normal instead of something to be corrected and controlled, communication creates the bridge to developmentally appropriate growth, maturity, and independence. Written by best-selling parenting and children's book author and mother of six, L.R.Knost, 'Whispers Through Time: Communication Through the Ages and Stages of Childhood' is a rethinking of mainstream parenting's perception of normal childhood behaviors coupled with simple, practical approaches to parent/child communication at each stage of development from tots to teens.

The most important job you will ever have is being a parent. Parents usually raise their children the way they were parented, no matter how good or bad their experience. People laugh when they say, Babies dont come with an instruction manual. The Respectful Parent: A Manual for Moms and Dads may be the closest book to that much needed manual. This book is for parents whose normal children are driving them up the wall, and parents who want to improve their parenting skills while things are still going well. The Respectful Parent is written in a personal style by an author, who has over 55 years of clinical experience working with families and individuals of all ages. Dr. Deutch believes that respect between parent and child, along with a toolbox of great common sense techniques, is the key to having a cooperative, happy and productive family. Spanking, yelling, and threats may work on your child in the immediate situation, but scientific research shows that in the long term, they have many negative and sometimes catastrophic side effects. The Respectful Parent teaches how to use positive and democratic ways to nurture children. These ideas are based on the commonsensical philosophy of Doctors Alfred Adler and Rudolph Dreikurs. Learn to use the power of encouragement, the family council, individual special time, natural and logical consequences, and simple communication techniques. Become your childs consultant rather than boss. Raise your childs self-esteem, courage, mental health, and even his or her I.Q.

When conducting parenting plan evaluations, mental health professionals need to be aware of a myriad of different factors. More so than in any other form of forensic evaluation, they must have an understanding of the most current findings in developmental research, behavioral psychology, attachment theory, and legal issues to substantiate their opinions. With a number of publications on child custody available, there is an essential need for a text focused on translating the research associated with the most important topics within the family court. This book addresses this gap in the literature by presenting an organized and in-depth analysis of the current research and offering specific recommendations for applying these findings to the evaluation process. Written by experts in the child custody arena, chapters cover issues associated with the most important and complex issues that arise in family court, such as attachment and overnight timesharing with very young children, dynamics between divorced parents and children's potential for resiliency, co-parenting children with chronic medical conditions and developmental disorders, domestic violence during separation and divorce, gay and lesbian co-parents, and relocation, among others. The scientific information provided in these chapters assists forensic mental health professionals to proffer empirically-based opinions, conclusions and recommendations. Parenting Plan Evaluations is a must-read for legal practitioners, family law judges and attorneys, and other professionals seeking to understand more about the science behind child custody evaluations.
