    BRAINSTORM: THE POWER AND PURPOSE OF THE

    BRAINSTORM: THE POWER AND PURPOSE OF THE
    $18.00
    In this New York Times-bestselling book, Dr. Daniel Siegel shows parents how to turn one of the most challenging developmental periods in their children's lives into one of the most rewarding.

    Between the ages of twelve and twenty-four, the brain changes in important and, at times, challenging ways. In Brainstorm, Dr. Daniel Siegel busts a number of commonly held myths about adolescence--for example, that it is merely a stage of "immaturity" filled with often "crazy" behavior. According to Siegel, during adolescence we learn vital skills, such as how to leave home and enter the larger world, connect deeply with others, and safely experiment and take risks.

    Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, Siegel explores exciting ways in which understanding how the brain functions can improve the lives of adolescents, making their relationships more fulfilling and less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.

    Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape

    Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape
    $15.99

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

    A Time Top 10 Book of the Year - A San Francisco Chronicle Book of the Year

    The author of the New York Times bestseller Cinderella Ate My Daughter offers a clear-eyed picture of the new sexual landscape girls face in the post-princess stage--high school through college--and reveals how they are negotiating it.

    A generation gap has emerged between parents and their girls. Even in this age of helicopter parenting, the mothers and fathers of tomorrow's women have little idea what their daughters are up to sexually or how they feel about it. Drawing on in-depth interviews with over seventy young women and a wide range of psychologists, academics, and experts, renowned journalist Peggy Orenstein goes where most others fear to tread, pulling back the curtain on the hidden truths, hard lessons, and important possibilities of girls' sex lives in the modern world.

    While the media has focused--often to sensational effect--on the rise of casual sex and the prevalence of rape on campus, in Girls and Sex Peggy Orenstein brings much more to the table. She examines the ways in which porn and all its sexual myths have seeped into young people's lives; what it means to be the "the perfect slut" and why many girls scorn virginity; the complicated terrain of hookup culture and the unfortunate realities surrounding assault. In Orenstein's hands these issues are never reduced to simplistic "truths;" rather, her powerful reporting opens up a dialogue on a potent, often silent, subtext of American life today--giving readers comprehensive and in-depth information with which to understand, and navigate, this complicated new world.

    How Children Thrive

    How Children Thrive
    $16.95

    Discover the proven ways parents can help their children learn, overcome adversity, get along with others, and become independent--while you relax and enjoy being a parent

    How do children thrive? As a parent, you probably think about this all the time. You want your children to have happy, healthy, and meaningful lives--but what's the best way to support them? In How Children Thrive, developmental pediatrician and parent Dr. Mark Bertin provides a positive, simple, and empowering approach for raising children of all ages. Bringing together mindfulness, new science on brain development, and the messy reality of being a parent, Dr. Bertin has a created a breakthrough guide that will help children--and their parents--flourish.
    Research has shown that the key to raising resilient, kind, and independent children lies in executive function, our mental capacity to manage just about everything in life. Despite its wonky, overly scientific name, there is nothing complicated about building executive function, Dr. Bertin writes. It's actually a lot more straightforward and less anxiety-provoking than most of the parenting advice out there. Through concise, easily applied chapters, Dr. Bertin provides simple strategies for helping your children develop healthy EF while taking care of yourself and enjoying your family. Highlights include:

    Mindfulness--how it directly builds EF and how to incorporate mindful practices for the whole family
    - The importance of free play, the science behind it, and how to encourage more of it
    - Technology--how much is too much? At what age is screen time OK? Help your kids have a healthy relationship with media.
    - Create simple routines that support independence around homework, nutrition, sleep, friendships, and more
    - Age-appropriate advice for toddlers, teens, and even your twenty-somethings
    - Limits and discipline: How to determine--and stick with--consequences for unwanted behavior
    - Understand markers for whether your child is developmentally on track or if extra support might be needed
    - Find the advice you need when you need it with short, independent chapters full of concrete practices
    - Bring more calm, ease, and joy to your parenting while taking care of yourself--even when family life gets chaotic
    - Give yourself permission to make mistakes and adapt along the way
    The pressure to be the perfect parent is overwhelming, writes Dr. Bertin, but the truth is the job is too challenging and varied to ever be done to perfection. With compassion and reassurance, Dr. Bertin presents a relaxed, instinctual, and evidence-based approach to raising children who thrive.

    Hunt, Gather, Parent: What Ancient Cultures Can Teach Us about the Lost Art of Raising Happy, Helpful Little Humans

    Hunt, Gather, Parent: What Ancient Cultures Can Teach Us about the Lost Art of Raising Happy, Helpful Little Humans
    $27.00
    The oldest cultures in the world have mastered the art of raising happy, well-adjusted children. What can we learn from them?

    When Dr. Michaeleen Doucleff becomes a mother, she examines the studies behind modern parenting guidance and finds the evidence frustratingly limited and the conclusions often ineffective. Curious to learn about more effective parenting approaches, she visits a Maya village in the Yucatán Peninsula. There she encounters moms and dads who parent in a totally different way than we do--and raise extraordinarily kind, generous, and helpful children without yelling, nagging, or issuing timeouts. What else, Doucleff wonders, are Western parents missing out on?

    In Hunt, Gather, Parent, Doucleff sets out with her three-year-old daughter in tow to learn and practice parenting strategies from families in three of the world's most venerable communities: Maya families in Mexico, Inuit families above the Arctic Circle, and Hadzabe families in Tanzania. She sees that these cultures don't have the same problems with children that Western parents do. Most strikingly, parents build a relationship with young children that is vastly different from the one many Western parents develop--it's built on cooperation instead of control, trust instead of fear, and personalized needs instead of standardized development milestones.

    Maya parents are masters at raising cooperative children. Without resorting to bribes, threats, or chore charts, Maya parents rear loyal helpers by including kids in household tasks from the time they can walk. Inuit parents have developed a remarkably effective approach for teaching children emotional intelligence. When kids cry, hit, or act out, Inuit parents respond with a calm, gentle demeanor that teaches children how to settle themselves down and think before acting. Hadzabe parents are world experts on raising confident, self-driven kids with a simple tool that protects children from stress and anxiety, so common now among American kids.

    Not only does Doucleff live with families and observe their techniques firsthand, she also applies them with her own daughter, with striking results. She learns to discipline without yelling. She talks to psychologists, neuroscientists, anthropologists, and sociologists and explains how these strategies can impact children's mental health and development. Filled with practical takeaways that parents can implement immediately, Hunt, Gather, Parent helps us rethink the ways we relate to our children, and reveals a universal parenting paradigm adapted for American families.

    You have a newborn, so sleep is impossible, right? Wrong! In the womb, babies sleep up to twenty hours per day. Clearly newborns don't need to be "trained" how to sleep - they know how, and they've had plenty of practice. So why do most parents have trouble getting their newborns to sleep?

    Elizabeth Pantley, a world-renowned expert on children's sleep, created this guide to explain the ways we unintentionally prevent an infant's natural sleep to occur, and to teach us the simple but powerful ways to maximize our newborn's naps and nighttime sleep. Once you've learned the 15 Keys to Amazing Newborn Sleep you'll easily make adjustments to how you treat your baby's sleep. You don't have to keep logs nor follow schedules or rules. Just by being aware of this information you will do things to improve sleep that you wouldn't have known to do otherwise.

    With The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Newborns, you will learn:
    ● the things that trick us into disrupting a baby's sleep
    ● how to identify the perfect moment for a nap
    ● ways to create a sleep-inducing environment
    ● tips to reduce the number of night wakings
    ● how to set the stage for great sleep throughout babyhood

    The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Newborns was field-tested by 122 test families with newborns.

And guess what? When your baby sleeps - you will, too!
