"What's our most precious resource? Children. What's the most valuable thing any child can have? A parent who loves and values them and will help them become the best they can be. And where do fathers go for advice on being that kind of parent? Fathers, you say, not mothers? Now that's a tricky one. Not any more it's not. Finally, there is a practical parenting guide for men. Michael Grose has a track record in parenting books and now he has written the one Australian fathers have been waiting for, A Man's Guide to Raising Kids. At last, a book specifically written for men in the 21st century. He demolishes the myths ('Children are not safe around men'- Myth! 'Fathers need to forgive their own fathers before they can be good dads'- Myth! 'Busy dads are bad dads'- Myth!). He provides practical advice that's easy to understand and apply, and covers everything dads need to know. Topics include- Getting discipline right; How to raise both daughters and sons effectively; How their birth order affects your kids and how you should deal with that; Getting involved in their sports; Fathering after divorce or separation; Getting through their adolescence; The role of grandad
Mindfulness for Kids
As parents, we want our kids to grow up to be generous, kind, independent and happy. We try to imagine them working in a job they love, happily married, raising a family and giving back to their community.
However, there is a crisis facing parents in first world countries. Our kids are anxious, distracted, apathetic, and sedentary. Kids have been drawn into the black hole of their digital world where communication, entertainment, learning, self-worth is derived from their cell phone.
Parents working multiple jobs are too busy or too exhausted to provide adequate guidance, so many kids are left to their own devices; to their own choices. Many choices are simply bad decisions or lead to anti-social behavior.
It is time to get your children back on track.
The kids that adopt a mindful approach to life are the kids that are attentive, focused, calm and curious. They are more able to problem-solve, collaborate well with others and are more resilient when things don't go as planned.
A mindful child is not normally born with those skills. They must be learned and practiced to see results in the same way a pianist is able to play a Mozart concerto.
Mindfulness for Kids is an introduction to mindfulness practices that is designed with the child in mind. The exercises are short and fun and will help your child stay with his present moment experience instead of dwelling on past mistakes or worrying about future problems.
With practice, your child can better stay in the present. Then, three amazing things will happen.
1. It will allow your kid to focus what he/she wants or needs to focus on.
2. It will allow your kid to better regulate against the outbursts borne from anger, fear, and anxiousness.
3. It will allow your kid not to be so rigid in his or her definition of themselves. I'm good at math; I'm a terrible speller; I'm not likable. You can be hurt terribly if you attach labels to yourself.
This guide will provide you with the tools and knowledge to better raise a curious, calm and focused child.
