How To Talk and Listen to Your Children: A Practical Workbook for Busy Parents.
Most parents will agree that raising children is the hardest job in the world.

When you have a baby, you spend those first two years struggling with sleep deprivation, crying, diapering, and numerous other responsibilities.

Handling a newborn is tough. But as any parent knows, what comes after the age of 3 makes everything before look like a walk in a park.

It seems like your child learned how to talk overnight, and suddenly, you discover a whole new aspect of your parent-child relationship: communication.

Many don’t even realize how crucial that moment is. Not only does your child now understand what you’re saying to them, but they also use words to express themselves.

It sounds simple enough, but communicating with children is actually more complex than you may realize.

In every interaction, we are driven by our emotions. When you’re an adult, you are able to control those emotions to a certain extent.

For instance, when you talk to someone you don’t like, you’ll try not to show it directly. You’ll suppress and control the dislike you’re feeling, because you know that’s the right thing to do.

Many parents make the mistake in thinking that their children have the same ability, that somehow they choose to have tantrums or screaming episodes at the grocery store, just to spite you.

In reality, your child is behaving this way because they don't know how to express the same emotion in a calm, controlled way.

It’s up to you as a parent to teach your children how to communicate their feelings and thoughts in a way that doesn’t provoke your anger or resentment.

If you ignore this task, you’re putting the future of the relationship with your child at stake--how you communicate with your children during these early stages of development can have consequences that reach long into their adulthood.

It’s not about disciplining your children--it’s about talking and listening in the right way.

Description:

“An absorbing and thoroughly well documented account” of WWII naval intelligence and the Allied hunt for the Nazi code machine known as the Enigma (Warship).

From the start of World War II to mid-1943, British and American naval forces fought a desperate battle against German submarine wolfpacks. And the Allies might have lost the struggle at sea without an astounding intelligence coup. Here, the author brings to life the race to break the German U-boat codes.

As the Battle of the Atlantic raged, Hitler’s U-boats reigned. To combat the growing crisis, ingenious amateurs joined the nucleus of dedicated professionals at Bletchley Park to unlock the continually changing German naval codes. Their mission: to read the U-boat messages of Hitler’s cipher device, the Enigma.

They first found success with the capture of U-110,—which yielded the Enigma machine itself and a trove of secret documents. Then the weather ship Lauenburg seized near the Arctic ice pack provided code settings for an entire month. Finally, two sailors rescued a German weather cipher that enabled the team at Bletchley to solve the Enigma after a year-long blackout.

In “a highly recommended account with a wealth of materials” Seizing the Enigma tells the story of a determined corps of people who helped turn the tide of the war (Naval Historical Foundation).

A Cultural History of Twin Beds challenges our most ingrained assumptions about intimacy, sexuality, domesticity and hygiene by tracing the rise and fall of twin beds as a popular sleeping arrangement for married couples between 1870 and 1970. Modern preconceptions of the twin bed revolve around their use by couples who have no desire to sleep in the same bed space. Yet, for the best part of a century, twin beds were not only seen as acceptable but were championed as the sign of a modern and forward-thinking couple. But what lay behind this innovation? And why did so many married couples ultimately abandon the twin bed?In this book, Hilary Hinds presents a fascinating insight into the combination of beliefs and practices that made twin beds an ideal sleeping solution. Using nuanced close readings of marriage guidance and medical advice books, furnishing catalogues, novels, films and newspapers, this volume offers an accessible and rigorous account of the curious history of twin beds. This is vital reading for those with an interest in cultural history, sociology, anthropology and psychology.

Nobody wishes to be free of obsessive-compulsive disorder more than the person who suffers from it. You're not alone if you worry a lot because your kid has habits you can't seem to break, even if it may feel that way at times.

The “Parenting Teens with OCD” includes all the relevant information to help your kids control negative thoughts, let go of anxious sensations, and halt difficult-to-stop behaviors to get back to doing what they enjoy.

Each chapter opens with a part that assists teenagers and their parents/caregivers focus on specific issues and developing skills for tuning out obsessions and resisting compulsions. The sections that follow demonstrate how to be helpful without interfering.

You may not know anybody else who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms such as the urge to wash their hands continually, check to be sure everything is okay, count items, put things in order, or even repeat ideas recurrently.

When your kid is stressed or anxious, rituals like these can help them relax, but you already know that the respite is only short, and they'll have to repeat the process when they're feeling uneasy again. This loop might make them feel trapped, yet breaking it may seem impossible or even terrifying.
