ABOUT THE BOOK The social environment, marriage, divorce, gender issues, economic status, religion, education and a host of other variables continue to affect families and parenting in the 21st Century. On one hand, bad parenting gets the blame for the majority of the problems in the society today. One another, society’s support to parents with raising children continues to reduce. There is a need to establish standards for parenting. Individuals who are unable to handle the responsibilities of their own lives end up becoming incompetent parents. Raising a child is clearly beyond performing a set of functions. It is a process of interdependent relationships that seek to influence a child’s mindset and behaviour, instill moral values, build self-confidence and develop competence in the child. Parent education and training are significant steps towards dealing effectively with the ever-increasing pressures that are part of the parenting journey. 21ST CENTURY PARENTING will enable you to: • Strengthen your value system as a parent. • Develop a family plan for effective parenting. • Acquire the parenting skills relevant in today’s society. • Groom your child for greatness. Reading this book will get you well on your way to becoming the best parent you could be.

Seymour Sarason, in the words of Carl Glickman, is "one of America's seminal thinkers about public education." For over four decades his has been a voice of much-needed skepticism about our plans for school reform, teacher training, and educational psychology. Now, for the first time, Sarason's essential writings on these and other issues are collected together, offering student and researcher alike with the range, depth, and originality of Sarason's contributions to American thinking on schooling. As we go from debate to debate on issues such as school choice, charter schools, inclusive education, national standards, and other problems that seem to drag on without solution, Sarason's critical stance on the folly of many of our attempts to fix schools has always had at the center a concern for the main players in our educational institutions: the students, the teachers and the parents. Any plans that cannot account for their well-being are doomed to failure. And in the face of such failure, the clarity of Sarason's vision for real educational success is a much-needed antidote to much of the rhetoric that currently passes for substantial debate. A wide-ranging and comprehensive selection of Sarason's most significant writings,The Skeptical Visionaryshould find a prized space on any student's or teacher's bookshelf. Author note:Robert Friedis Associate Professor in the School of Education at Northeastern University, and is the author ofThe Passionate Teacher: A Practical GuideandThe Passionate Learner: How Teachers and Parents Can Help Children Reclaim the Joy of Discovery.Seymour Sarasonis Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at Yale University. He is the author of over forty books and is considered to be one of the most significant researchers in education and educational psychology in the country.

Frazzled by the dizzying changes of today's complex world, bombarded by countless "shoulds," and torn between the experts and your heart's knowing, you watch your best intentions get overrun.

Guided by a metaphor from Nature, you'll discover the best in you so that you can bring out the best in your child by:* inviting your natural wisdom to bloom* building your parenting skills no matter your history* applying timeless guidance to every age and stage* calling on a memorable framework even when life is stressfulWhether you long to reverse dysfunctional family patterns or merely refine your current parenting style, House of the Sun is a companion and guide to nurturing the well-being of each person in the family, as well as for the development of the "Unique Gift" your child has brought to bless the world.

Many assume that the Internet introduces youth and young adults to dangerous information and substances while others contend that open and free access to accurate drug use information is critical to reducing dangerous behaviors. The primary goal of this book is to take the debate about drug use and the Internet from polemic discourse to social scientific investigation. Our work highlights the variety of ways to examine drug use as a social problem, and several theoretical perspectives valuable for online research.

"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth."--3 John 4 Never Too Late is full of practical and biblical wisdom to guide parents trying to reach their adult children for Christ. The four biblical principles outlined in this time-tested resource have been honed at the popular Never Too Late conferences organized by Visionary Family Ministries. Most importantly, this book has been an encouragement for parents desperately wanting their children to have deep faith and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Writing with compassion and honesty, pastor Rob Rienow shares a powerful message of hope: it's never too late to point an adult child's heart toward God. "Parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents will find practical help in this book to build closer relationships with their children. . . . Rob reminds us we . . . must hold fast to the goal of our children placing their full faith and trust in Christ. . . . You will richly benefit from reading this book." --John White, Wheaton Bible Church "Rob Rienow has done an incredible job of capturing the burden that so many parents feel for their adult children. . . . Never Too Late brings you hope even in the midst of painful times." --Jim Burns, author of Confident Parenting.

What is the best way to work with fathers who have a history of abusive behavior? This question is among the thorniest that social service and criminal justice professionals must deal with in their careers, and in this essential new work Jeffrey L. Edleson, Oliver J. Williams, and a group of international colleagues examine the host of equally difficult issues that surround it.Beginning with the voices of mothers and fathers who speak about men's contact with and parenting of their children, the authors then examine court and mental health services perspectives on how much involvement violent men should have in their children's lives. The second half of the book showcases programs such as the Boston-based Fathering After Violence initiative and the Caring Dads program in Canada, which introduce non-abusive parenting concepts and skills to batterers and have developed useful guidelines for intervention with these fathers.Visionary but also practical, Parenting by Men Who Batter distills the most relevant policy issues, research findings, and practice considerations for those who coordinate batterer programs or work with families, the courts, and the child welfare system. It guides professionals in understanding men who batter, assessing their parenting skills, making decisions about custody and visitation, and modeling treatment programs that engage fathers in their children's lives while maximizing safety.

I asked for and gained initial physical custody when my marriage ended in late 1981. The kids (Kim-age 3 , Lance-nearly age 5) and I invented a series of creative growth games which helped us focus on our values, philosophies, and have fun all the while overcoming challenges in a complex world of tremendous change. Every day started and ended with joy and thanksgiving. I wouldnt trade it for anything! For over 20 years, I have shared the fun, laughs, possible benefits & results of our lessons and techniques with audiences. I have shared the essence of my parenting lessons, which I adapted from my professional managerial and technical experiences, as an adjunct faculty member of the University of Phoenix (Sacramento Valley Campus System) where I was twice awarded the distinction as Outstanding Faculty in Business Administration. I have conducted management training sessions for GE, where I was recognized as earning the highest instructor evaluation in a 3-year period. I recently conducted training for physician chiefs at a large hospital. I shared a game invented by daughter Kim at age 6 (the Wishing Well Game) with over 100 dads and their kids at the Second Annual Fathers Spring Festival at Las Lomitas School, Atherton, California. I have contributed in several industries (mostly high technology) from very large Fortune 500sGE (3 Divisions), FMC (2 Divisions), IBM, Motorola, Applied Materials, and Tandem Computers (which is now part of HP). I have earned degrees: BS Electrical Engineering, and Masters of Business Administration. [email protected]
