Generation Sleepless
An intimate glimpse inside a silent epidemic that is harming teens and how parents can help them reclaim the restorative power of sleep. If you could protect your teen from unnecessary anxiety, depression, and chronic stress, and foster a greater sense of happiness and well-being in their life, wouldn’t you? In Generation Sleepless, the authors of the classic guide to helping babies and young children develop healthy sleep habits The Happy Sleeper uncover one of the greatest threats to our teenagers’ physical and mental health: sleep deprivation.

In this essential book, Heather Turgeon, MFT and Julie Wright, MFT draw on the latest scientific research to reveal that, at a critical phase of development, many teens need more sleep than their younger siblings, but they''re getting drastically less. Generation Sleepless helps readers: • foster a teen''s self-motivation for sleeping well • alter family practices around phones, social media, and screen time • draw on an understanding of teens'' night owl tendencies to create smart sleep habits • lay out steps for sleep-friendly schools and promoting systemic changes that help teens get the rest they need This first-of-its-kind book is packed with clear and instantly usable advice for parents as well as an eye-opening call to action for teachers, principals, colleges, coaches, and policy makers.

Infinite Connections

Infinite Connections
This is my first collection of poems covering a wide range of subject matter. It is divided into nine sections: Cognectivities, Conversations, Crosshatchings, Suburbia, Epiphanies, Memography, Memos to Self, Poetic Memes, and Poetic Distillations. As you can see from these subtitles, I am interested in neologisms and also in exploring new approaches to form and subject matter in my poetry. Some of my poems have been inspired by my time spent living in Italy and Thailand. Others reveal my interest in Theology, Philosophy, History, Art, Music and Literature. It also reflects my time living in both the city and the country. They are also bear the stamp of my love of nature and my interest in politics and social commentary. Although this book is written for adults, it would be eminently suitable as a secondary school poetry text and will be launched with a shorter companion book for teachers and poets who would like to spend time analysing themes and messages and the poetic devices used to convey them.

A Captain for Caroline Gray

release date: Jan 01, 2021
A Captain for Caroline Gray
"Caroline Gray''s third season in London society ends as badly as her first two--no marriage proposal, no suitor, not even a glimmer of an interested prospect. She suspects it''s because she is far too quick to speak her mind to men who are put off by her forthright opinions, her eager intellect backed by a formal education, and her unconventional ideas about the future. She is far more daring than demure to suit the taste of her class. Besides, Caroline thinks there will always be next season to find a husband. However, her family''s dwindling income leaves Caroline with only one choice to secure her future: a one-way ticket to sail with the Fishing Fleet to India, where the son of a family friend waits. If the match doesn''t work, Caroline cannot return home. Captain Thomas Scott loves the thrill of the open sea, and as commander of one of the ships of the "Fishing Fleet," he ferries scores of young English girls to the shores of India to find husbands. The voyages pay well, but he struggles to understand why families would allow young women to be matched with total strangers so far away. The trips have always been routine and uneventful--until this trip''s first night''s dinner with one Miss Caroline Gray. She engages in a lively political conversation, presenting opposing viewpoints to the conventionally opinionated gentlemen at her table. Captain Scott is secretly amused and delighted at her boldness, not to mention quite drawn to her beauty. The rest of the passengers are shocked by her behavior and Caroline finds herself an outcast, suffering harsh judgments from the other passengers. However, she finds an unlikely ally in Captain Scott which quickly draws them closer. Both know an arranged marriage awaits Caroline at the end of their voyage, yet the attraction between them is undeniable. Caroline will have to decide if she will honor her mother''s wishes and marry a man in India whom she has never met--thus securing a future for her and her mother--or be brave enough to throw convention to the wind and commit to love a sea captain. He may be enchanted by her bold and unconventional ways, but will his love and admiration last?"--
