Description:

It is easy in our fast-paced, competitive, consumer-driven world to forget that children are not mini-adults, projects to be managed or problems to be solved. This common-sense guide to parenting and caring for children under eight, reminds us that a child’s development cannot be rushed, or crudely measured again milestones. It takes an entire childhood to grow and there is no perfect when it comes to parenting.
 
In her informed, heartfelt way, one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors Maggie Dent takes a comprehensive look at the 9 Things that truly matter in raising children, and why they matter so much. She uses the metaphor of a wise aunty, Wilma — a voice of ancient wisdom that seems to be disappearing amidst the chaos.
 
With passion, warmth and humour, Maggie draws on current research and her extensive experience as an educator, counsellor and mother of four to guide parents and caregivers in their endless decision-making, to raise children who are happy, healthy, strong, kind and resilient.
 
Commonly known as the ‘queen of common sense’, Maggie Dent has become one of Australia's favourite parenting authors and educators, with a particular interest in the early years, adolescence and resilience.
 
Maggie’s experience includes teaching, counselling, and working in palliative care/funeral services and suicide prevention. She is a dedicated advocate to quietly changing lives in our families and communities. She is the mother of four sons and a very grateful grandmother.
 
Maggie is the author of 11 books including her 2018 release Mothering Our Boys which is already a bestseller.

Description:

Older people need about twice as much light as younger people to accomplish everyday tasks comfortably and the need is even greater for people with dementia.
Light and lighting that promotes health and independence doesn’t just happen. It needs to be designed, with awareness of the specific needs of older people and people with dementia.

Enlighten: Lighting for older people and people with dementia provides general insights for a broad readership, recommendations for care professionals and detailed technical information for engineers, architects and designers responsible for new buildings, refurbishments and alterations.
 
Enlighten explains how much light is enough, why access to natural light benefits health and how contrast, colour and reflection can hinder or support us in making sense of our world.
 
The three authors have decades of experience across lighting engineering, building design and dementia care, ensuring that Enlighten is a go-to resource for creating dementia-inclusive environments that improve quality of life and increase independence.

Every Day With ADHD
Understanding the World of Your Child With ADHD
Kerry Cooney
9781921874932
2019-06-01
A$19.99
Woodslane Press

Click for links:

Description:

After years of working with parents and their ADHD children, it became apparent to author Kerry Cooney that there were unmet needs in families where a child had been diagnosed with ADHD. A lack of knowledge and specific tools for ADHD was also causing concern for professionals who desperately wanted information on how best to assist these children and families. Very few people truly understood ADHD and its impact on the child and the family, many having the view that a child with ADHD is simply naughty, far too demanding and uncontrollable.
It is the author's belief that the controversial aspects of the existence of ADHD and the use of medication kept the focus away from the child and the family's real issues often preventing any hope of clarity and moving towards a positive outcome. Along with the need for understanding was a disturbing lack of support for the child and family dealing with ADHD.
This book has been written for parents, carers and teachers of children with ADHD, to help understand the world of their child along with providing workable strategies for every day living.

Hybrid Publishers

Description:

One of the most-needed and grab-you-by-the throat convincing books around today” - Steve
Biddulph, author of Raising Boys
 
“For parents who feel defeated by the powerful influence of social media in their children’s lives, this book will sympathise, illuminate, inspire and encourage us to believe there is another, better way to live.” - Hugh Mackay, social researcher and bestselling author
 
Smartphones and other interactive devices have turned up the volume on stress and are
harming our mental and physical health. They have shrunk the capacity of families to spend time together, and when together, they have increased conflicts. Two-thirds of Australian families experience tension or disagreement about screens at least three times a week.
 
In this confronting yet constructive guide on parenting in the digital age, award-winning journalist Toni Hassan catalogues the impacts of interactive devices on children and young people and offers ways out.
 
“Rather than freeing us, screens have made us dependent,” she says. “They have thinned relationships and thinned time for the things that ultimately nourish us. Almost no part of children’s lives are free from the anxiety created by commercial forces curating their moment to moment experiences.”
 
Moving beyond the gloom, Hassan offers lots of practical hope with ideas and tips for families to manage the digital age so that, despite the challenges, children and young people can thrive.
