Distinguished pediatrician Dr Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo are two of the world’s leading experts on infant management concepts. In this revised 5th edition, they have updated their groundbreaking approach which has found favor with over six million parents in all 50 states and has been translated into 16 languages around the world.<br /><br />For over 20 years, On Becoming Babywise has been the de facto newborn parenting manual for naturally synchronizing your baby’s feeding time, waketime and nighttime sleep cycles, so the whole family can sleep through the night.<br /><br />The authors demonstrate how order and stability are mutual allies of every newborn’s metabolism and how parents can take advantage of these biological propensities. In particular, they note how an infant’s body responds to the influences of parental routine or the lack thereof.<br /><br />Early chapters start with explorations of everyday aspects of infant management such as the three basic elements of daytime activities for newborns: feeding time, waketime, and naptime. <br /><br />Practical discussions then focus on broad and niche topics including feeding philosophies, baby sleep problems, baby scheduling challenges, nap routines, sleep training multiples, baby sleeping props, Colic and Reflux and many other dimensions which impact breast feeding schedules, bottle feeding tips and baby sleep training.<br /><br />Five resource Appendixes provide additional reference material:<br /><br />1) Taking care of baby and mom<br />2) A timeline of what to expect and when<br />3) Baby Sleep Training Problems and Solutions<br />4) Monitoring Your Baby’s Growth<br />5) Healthy Baby Growth Charts<br /><br />On Becoming Babywise is more than an infant-management concept. It is a mindset for successful parenthood. It can help any parent develop a plan that meets both the needs of a new baby and of the entire family. These principles have worked for millions of parents and, when applied with common sense to your unique situation, can work wonderfully for you too! Recommended by doctors across the country.

<h1>This is MORE than a parenting book! </h1><br /></br><br />Please don’t buy this book if you enjoy being stressed and uncertain how to handle your child’s <b>tantrums, sensitivity, anxiety, rigidity</b> or <b>apathy.</b> And don't buy this book if you are looking for a one size fits all parenting/teaching approach for these difficult behaviors. However, if you are looking for a <b>deeper connection</b> with all your loved ones, this book will give you: </br><br /><ul><br /><li>a crystal-clear FOCUS for forming appropriate expectations<br /><li>a solid FRAMEWORK for building up their best qualities and<br /><li>a FORECAST for outlining their future development</li><br /></ul><br /></br><br />As a parent, she has struggled. She has been a helicopter parent, an explosive parent and an embarrassing parent. (Google “dancing mom in traffic” and see for yourself.) Because she has struggled as a parent, she wants to help other parents struggle…a little bit less! <br /><b>Temperament psychology</b> and <b>qEEG brain maps</b>, concluded that she and her daughter were complete opposites. Even with over twenty years of experience training both children and adults she was still desperately seeking a user manual that would explain how to get through to her daughter. It didn’t exist. Over the last nine years, Gossett has combined extensive research with hundreds of family case studies to create the user manual she had been seeking. This book will help you accurately assess the temperament of each family member, “map” their brain functions and discover how to motivate them and connect with them throughout every stage of their development. It will also help you relax when you read about some of Gossett’s own parenting pitfalls as well as the struggles and victories of other families similar to yours. <br /></br><br /><h2>In this "user manual" you will find:</h2><br /><ul><br /><li>assessment tools to help you discover your own true personality type as well as the true type of all the important people in your life<br /><li>explanation of the four people patterns with relatable illustrations and interactive online activities to get your kids involved<br /><li>detailed descriptions of the eight cognitive brain functions and how to strengthen them<br /><li>charts and graphs that will help you map all your family brain functions which will demystify sibling rivalry and family conflict<br /><li>personality type descriptions for each stage of their development from infancy through high school, college and adulthood<br /><li>characteristics such as brain functions, motivations, strengths and imbalances for each type and for each stage of their development so you can forecast what lies ahead and help them make better choices<br /><li>tips for positive parenting that will help your children find more alignment in these areas<br /><li>hundreds of case studies that address sensory processing, sibling rivalry, inflexibility, ADHD, defiance, aggression, hypochondria, low empathy, perfectionism and many more<br /><li>step by step instructions for implementing all the concepts with family activities<br /><br /><li>BONUS: Effective teaching practices to help teachers understand and work with each child’s unique personality type <br /><li>BONUS: Easy to use reference style so you can jump around to the sections that apply to your family or read the whole book</br><br /><br />Focusing on <b>WHO</b> your child is versus <b>WHAT</b> your child does is the first step for creating a sense of worthiness within your child. Not only is it necessary to guide your children, but it is also necessary to allow them to guide you. Parenting is a TWO-WAY STREET!<br /></br><br /><em>“Understanding now how my daughter ticks has transformed our relationship and for the first time, we are connecting! I am her teacher, but because of this book I realize that she will be my teacher too. When my daughter is grown and we are (hopefully) friends, it will be in large part because of the information Wendy offers.” Kira Dorrian, Parent Coach and Host of Future Focused Parenting </em><br /><br /><br /><br />

Stop me when this sounds familiar… You are struggling with being an overachiever and perfectionism. You feel like you aren’t good enough, worthy enough, or just not enough in general. You are looking for ways to decrease anxiety and start rebuilding self worth. You try so hard to do enough for everyone that you don’t really take care of yourself. And all the while, you just feel like there isn’t enough time in the day. You put yourself on the back burner and make sure everyone else is taken care of. You have hard time deciding what you want because you are making sure everyone else is getting what they want. <br /><br />I have been there too. I have been a chronic apologizer. I have been a black and white thinker. I have had to work on defining truth, building boundaries, and learning how to make good decisions in life. I worried all the time that I would fail and that it would be a catastrophe. I worried about what people would think of me and practiced how to respond to things before they would happen. I have struggled with Imposter syndrome. I have always needed external rewards for what I do. Gold stars, A+’s, people commenting that they couldn’t get along without me.<br /><br />Over the years, I have learned some valuable lessons. Some from my own life and some from my career as a Licensed Psychologist. All of these lessons have changed the way that I think, act and live my life. <br />I wrote this book to show you how to make the intentional choices that will allow you to take control of your life. By recognizing the choices, you have and learning to be more intentional in making them, you can reduce the regret that comes with feeling pushed into a decision. I want you to live a life you haven’t even imagined you could. A life of Fullness and Enoughness. A life of Worth. A life lived Intentionally with less guilt, shame, and stress. A life of more hope, more success, and more love where you can be your best self.

Dr. Susanne Bennett, best-selling author of The 7-Day Allergy Makeover and The Mighty Mito shares a revolutionary approach to achieving weight loss and protecting against a host of modern illnesses, like allergies, obesity, diabetes, heart issues, and cancer in her exciting new book, The Kimchi Diet. <br /><br />The modern diet is based on highly-processed and refrigerated foods, and this has brought with it a huge downside: the elimination of amazing probiotic foods, filled with helpful bacteria, like kimchi. This change has wreaked havoc on our internal gut biome, leading to weight gain, increased inflammation, lower immunity, and even emotional distress. <br /><br />Enter the ancient Korean wonder food: kimchi, a simple dish of fermented vegetables (including cucumbers, mustard greens, cabbage and more) that can be incorporated into any diet—keto, paleo, vegan, and more. This isn’t about starvation, deprivation, or an extreme eating plan—it’s about adding one single food and watching your body transform!<br /><br />The Kimchi Diet walks you through an eight-week, step-by-step plan to make, ferment, and store kimchi in your own home, giving you all the health benefits of this plant-based food and its powerful probiotic content. Even for those who have never tried kimchi, the book details amazing, mouthwatering recipes—in spicy and non-spicy versions—that can all be made with very little prep time and no cooking. Just chop, salt, mix, and store! <br /><br />Furthermore, this book details the slew of recent scientific studies that reveal why making and eating kimchi with your family is one of the single best things you can do for your health, especially for anyone concerned with obesity, diabetes, anxiety, cancer prevention, heart disease, and more. <br /><br />Inside you’ll find:<br /><br />•Why kimchi is the world’s #1 super food<br />•How to make and store enough kimchi for your eight-week transformation<br />•Why homemade kimchi is different than store-bought yogurt, sauerkraut, industrially produced kimchi, or other probiotic foods<br />•Why probiotic pills can’t compete with real, natural kimchi<br />•How kimchi can help you with weight loss, fighting diabetes, and heart disease<br />•How eating kimchi can elevate your mood and alleviate anxiety<br />•How to make vegan, paleo, keto, spicy and not-spicy versions of kimchi<br />•Dr. Bennett’s complete Ultimate Anti-inflammatory Nutrition Plan so you can eat more healthfully and get the most out of your kimchi<br />•Links to resources, videos, and more exotic kimchi recipes<br /><br />The Kimchi Diet will help you feel lighter, happier, and full of energy, providing your family with all the joys and health benefits of kimchi that people in Korea have known for millennia.<br />
