In this "funny and honest" (Pamela Druckerman) memoir, Slate editor Dan Kois sets out with his family on a journey around the world to change their lives together. What happens when one frustrated dad turns his kids'' lives upside down in search of a new way to be a family? Dan Kois and his wife always did their best for their kids. Busy professionals living in the D.C. suburbs, they scheduled their children''s time wisely, and when they weren''t arguing over screen time, the Kois family-Dan, his wife Alia, and their two pre-teen daughters-could each be found searching for their own happiness. But aren''t families supposed to achieve happiness together? In this eye-opening, heartwarming, and very funny family memoir, the fractious, loving Kois'' go in search of other places on the map that might offer them the chance to live away from home-but closer together. Over a year the family lands in New Zealand, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, and small-town Kansas. The goal? To get out of their rut of busyness and distractedness and to see how other families live outside the East Coast parenting bubble. HOW TO BE A FAMILY brings readers along as the Kois girls-witty, solitary, extremely online Lyra and goofy, sensitive, social butterfly Harper-like through the Kiwi bush, ride bikes to a Dutch school in the pouring rain, battle iguanas in their Costa Rican kitchen, and learn to love a town where everyone knows your name. Meanwhile, Dan interviews neighbors, public officials, and scholars to learn why each of these places work the way they do. Will this trip change the Kois family''s lives? Or do families take their problems and conflicts with them wherever we go? A journalistic memoir filled with heart, empathy, and lots of whining, HOW TO BE A FAMILY will make readers dream about the amazing adventures their own families might take.

Family and Space

Family and Space
While the ''spatial turn'' within the social sciences has already nurtured a broad discussion of the relation between society and space, little attention has so far been paid to the question of what we can learn about families when exploring space in its different facets. This book brings together international authors from the fields of sociology, human geography, and anthropology to support the development of space-sensitive and de-territorialised perspectives on the family that reach beyond classical concepts such as the ''household'' or the ''nuclear family''. With close attention to the implications of differing relations to space for the social fabric of families, it presents studies of theoretical, methodological, and empirical aspects of late-modern family life. Examining the meaning of absence and presence for parenting, the aesthetic, and sensual dimensions of everyday family life, and its digital and media-related features aspects, Family and Space considers the value of a range of approaches to researching the spatial elements of family life, including ethnographic accounts, interviews, group discussions, mobile methods, and network analyses. range of approaches to researching the spatial elements of family life, including ethnographic accounts, interviews, group discussions, mobile methods, and network analyses.

Practicing What the Doctor Preached

release date: Dec 01, 2016
Practicing What the Doctor Preached
James Dobson, founder of the conservative Christian foundation Focus on the Family, is well-known to the secular world as a crusader for the Christian right. But within Christian circles he is known primarily as a childrearing expert. Millions of American children have been raised on his message, disseminated through books, videos, radio programs, magazines, and other media. While evangelical Christians have always placed great importance on familial responsibilities, Dobson placed the family at the center of Christian life. Only by sticking to proper family roles can we achieve salvation. Women, for instance, only come to know God fully by submitting to their husbands and nurturing their children. Such uniting of family life and religion has drawn people to the organization, just as it has forced them to wrestle with what it meant to be a Christian wife, husband, mother, father, son, or daughter. Adapting theories from developmental psychology that melded parental modeling with a conservative Christian theology of sinfulness, salvation, and a living relationship with Jesus, Dobson created a new model for the Christian family. But what does that model look like in real life? Drawing on interviews with mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters, Practicing What the Doctor Preached explores how actual families put Dobson''s principles into practice. To what extent does Focus shape the practices of its audience to its own ends, and to what extent does Focus'' understanding of its members'' practices and needs shape the organization? Susan B. Ridgely shows that, while Dobson is known for being rigid and dogmatic, his followers show surprising flexibility in the way they actually use his materials. She examines Focus''s listeners and their changing needs over the organization''s first thirty years, a span that saw the organization expand from centering itself on childrearing to entrenching itself in public debates over sexuality, education, and national politics.

Raising Cooperative Kids

Raising Cooperative Kids
Not since Dr. Spock''s The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care published in 1946 has there been such a comprehensive book on parenting. Raising Cooperative Kids focuses on children from toddlerhood to early teens, picking up where Spock''s book leaves off. Patterson, who was one of the leaders of the behavioral movement in psychology, gets straight to the heart of the power struggle that begins when children learn to speak and interact with others. This fight for power is at the core of every tantrum and argument that will ever occur between parents and children. Together, Patterson and Forgatch give parents the formula to overcome this struggle and make children want to cooperate. Their parenting techniques tap deep-rooted human instincts, making them universal and easy to use no matter where you live or how your family is structured. Developed over 40 years of practice and tested in clinical studies, these techniques enable parents to teach their children new behaviors, change unwanted behaviors, and reduce family conflicts. Unlike most parenting books, the focus is first on changing the behaviors of parents and giving them proven tools to bring out the best in their children. Specific guidance is included for issues ranging from how to share the bathroom during the morning rush to what to do when a child misbehaves. The authors also remind us of the importance of play#8212enjoying each other and sharing time and activities together is the cornerstone of a happy family. Raising Cooperative Kids is the only parenting book you will ever need.

The Holy Family Model Not Exception

release date: Mar 19, 2018
The Holy Family Model Not Exception
Description of Book The communion of love between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the source from which love in the human family springs, according to contemporary Catholic Theology. The Holy Family, from the Middle Ages in Europe, was considered the earthly Trinity but because there was no conjugal intercourse it was considered the exception. In her book, Shivanandan argues that Christ is the model for all human love in His conforming to the father''s will. The Holy Family, with Christ at the center is, therefore, the model for all baptized human families. Shivanandan traces how the family as a communion of persons came about and is lived in Western culture along with distortions which affect it today. Until the role of Joseph as husband and father and a philosophy of the person and communion of persons, both of which matured in the 19th and 20th centuries, were developed, a full understanding of the Holy Family and by corollary the human family as a communion of persons imaging divine Trinitarian communion could not come about. Central to the author''s theme is the understanding of the human person as gift and his/her fulfillment as self-gift to God and/or another human being, especially according to the teaching of St. John Paul II. The Holy Family witnesses both to celibacy for the kingdom and human spousal love. In the central portion of the book, the author spells out what it means to be a communion of persons both in the Holy Family and human families. The person, both as man or woman, is in a unique relationship with God. Sexual difference, while intrinsic to the person made in God''s image, never obscures the equality of his/her being a person whose freedom is fundamental. The spousal relation, while giving different roles to man and woman, must always respect, especially, the personhood of the woman. Similarly motherhood and fatherhood have distinct gifts and tasks. The bodily nursing of the infant by the mother in imitation of Mary, is particularly emphasized. The importance of the child is stressed since our destiny is to be adopted children of the Father. A pivotal chapter spells out the importance of Presence/presence; of Christ''s presence in the family and of bodily presence of family members to each other. A chapter is devoted to how the Church''s teaching in the encyclical, Humanae vitae helps to bring about the communion of persons. Far from being a barrier to spousal love, it enhances it, although not without effort and a certain suffering. The two final chapters consider Lumen Gentium''s universal call to holiness and sin and conversion. While sin is the usual path of man and woman after the Fall, Christ''s redeeming power in the sacraments enables weak human beings to surmount their weaknesses and live the full measure of the communion of persons in the family; in other words to be holy families like the Holy Family. The book has particular relevance in our culture today, confused as it is over the identity of man and woman and marriage. Women seek to become like men in order participate in society, regarding their feminine gift of fertility and nurturing as detrimental. Some men, on the other hand, seek to become women. This book, following John Paul II, shows a better way that both affirms women''s legitimate desires to be honored as human persons first and, at the same time, calls for a true appreciation of masculine gifts. Without mutual submission to the Creator of the Universe, who is a Communion of Love, men and women cannot find the communion of love they seek and which is essential for their own flourishing and that of children and families. The Holy Family is, indeed, the model not the exception.

Parenting to a Degree

Parenting to a Degree
Helicopter parents—the kind that continue to hover even in college—are one of the most ridiculed figures of twenty-first-century parenting, criticized for creating entitled young adults who boomerang back home. But do involved parents really damage their children and burden universities? In this book, sociologist Laura T. Hamilton illuminates the lives of young women and their families to ask just what role parents play during the crucial college years. Hamilton vividly captures the parenting approaches of mothers and fathers from all walks of life—from a CFO for a Fortune 500 company to a waitress at a roadside diner. As she shows, parents are guided by different visions of the ideal college experience, built around classed notions of women’s work/family plans and the ideal age to “grow up.” Some are intensively involved and hold adulthood at bay to cultivate specific traits: professional helicopters, for instance, help develop the skills and credentials that will advance their daughters’ careers, while pink helicopters emphasize appearance, charm, and social ties in the hopes that women will secure a wealthy mate. In sharp contrast, bystander parents—whose influence is often limited by economic concerns—are relegated to the sidelines of their daughter’s lives. Finally, paramedic parents—who can come from a wide range of class backgrounds—sit in the middle, intervening in emergencies but otherwise valuing self-sufficiency above all. Analyzing the effects of each of these approaches with clarity and depth, Hamilton ultimately argues that successfully navigating many colleges and universities without involved parents is nearly impossible, and that schools themselves are increasingly dependent on active parents for a wide array of tasks, with intended and unintended consequences. Altogether, Parenting to a Degree offers an incisive look into the new—and sometimes problematic—relationship between students, parents, and universities.

The Attack on the Family and the European Response

release date: Oct 05, 2016
The Attack on the Family and the European Response
"Never has the institution of the family been put in such jeopardy as it is today. Wars, tyrannical rulers and the reducing of entire peoples into slavery, although never absent from history, have damaged or even destroyed individual families, but the institution itself had never been touched." Until now, when the cultural Marxists have made the demolition of the Family a key part of their long war against Christian civilisation and European identity. This important new work exposes the origins and methods of this ruthless assault on traditional values and on the rights of parents and children. Written from a patriotic, traditionalist and Christian perspective, it highlights the anti-human agenda of the enemies of normality. Thoroughly researched and referenced, it provides a wealth of facts which demolish the specious arguments employed by the propagandists of sexual ''liberation'', ''gender theory'' and heterophobia. It provides valuable insights into the deeply negative impact of the left''s assault on the Family on the physical and mental welfare both on children and on members of the very ''minorities'' the left claim to champion. Finally, it examines the positive steps now underway in various nations as the traditionalist counter-revolution grows in strength and confidence.

21 Days to a Happier Family
21 DAYS TO A HAPPIER FAMILY gives parents scientifically proven suggestions for making their family happier than ever, starting today! ''Parenthood can be a jungle, but Justin''s advice and simple strategies will help you find that path back to sanity, stability and smiling kids.'' - Lisa Wilkinson Everyone wants their family to be happy, but so much gets in the way - work stress, commitments and our children''s challenging behaviour are some of the usual suspects. Less obvious obstacles are our own habits and expectations, a reactive parenting style, and even a lack of clarity about what makes a family truly happy. As a result, families often seem fragmented, stressed and out of control. Kidspot parenting expert Justin Coulson knows how to make families happier. In this book, he combines cutting-edge insights from positive psychology with classic psychological research to help parents identify and develop habits that will strengthen their family. In his trademark warm and empathic style Justin covers topics like developing your parenting style, getting relationships right and how that leads to effective discipline, using mindfulness in parenting, being emotionally available to your children - and so much more. ''Justin Coulson''s compassionate and helpful advice helps me unravel my many parenting dilemmas'' - Jessica Rowe

Parenting Through Illness

release date: Jan 01, 2016
Parenting Through Illness
Parents get sick. Their lives change radically, and quickly. This book offers immediate, practical and experienced advice for adult family members and others responsible for the wellbeing of children when one parent has a serious illness. The authors are both clinical social workers with years of training and time spent with children and families in crisis. They establish a clear and authoritative voice, while keeping a tone of encouragement throughout. With its matter-of-fact language, the book is organized to make it easy for parents to turn to the sections they most need, when they need them. Collins and Nathan keep their readers focused on the child in every situation, while always supporting reasonable boundaries in positive self-care for the adults who serve them. The authors remind us that the task of parenting is hard enough, even when Mom and Dad are healthy, energetic and emotionally strong. Add a diagnosis of cancer, heart disease, or a debilitating accident to the mix, and parenting can quickly become overwhelming. They acknowledge that anyone faced with a serious health crisis will be challenged daily to decide on treatment options, to reorient priorities, and to deal with the many stages of grief that humans suffer when confronted with survival issues. They help us remember that one member''s illness will affect the entire family system, and explain how. The book is unique: -It deals with any kind of serious illness, not just cancer. -It explains how children of different age ranges commonly react to a parent''s illness, or other family crisis. -It suggests specific language in talking to children of different ages. -A full chapter is devoted to advantages and disadvantages of using information technology, rarely covered in other books on this topic. -Based on extensive qualitative research. -Includes excerpts from interviews with parents and children coping with illness in the family. Both authors rely on their training, but also on early life experience in which they encountered traumatic family events. As a teenager, Courtney Nathan lost her mother to breast cancer. Leigh Collins suffered a terrible accident as a young child, and was confined in hospital for many weeks. Their book reflects a dedication to other families who face such life-altering circumstances. The book has received wide endorsement from medical doctors and social service personnel who know the urgent need for this information for their patients and clients.
