The widespread popularity of Miss Geraldine Brooks' book, “Dames and Daughters of Colonial Days” (1900), led to the request that the author prepare a companion volume dealing with the period immediately following the Revolutionary War. This she has did 1901 with “Dames and Daughters of the Young Republic” which included a series of eight delightful sketches of celebrated women, like Dolly Madison, Martha Jefferson, Elizabeth Patterson (Madame Bonaparte) and Dorothy Hancock. <br />The sketch of Martha Jefferson has been excerpted here for the convenience of the reader, due to the present great interest in Thomas Jefferson’s famous daughter.<br /><br />Brooks’ account provides a pleasing sketches of Martha who had not a little to do with the early management of this country's affairs—though, perhaps, in a quiet way—and the portrait also affords a vivid glimpses of a chivalrous time. It throws entertaining side-lights upon Martha and the well-known people with whom she came in contact. It is a narrative sketch and is designed to show the character and conditions of society that governed life in America over two centuries ago.<br /><br />Martha Jefferson Randolph ( 1772 –1836) was the daughter of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, and his wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson. Born at Monticello, near Charlottesville, Virginia. Her nickname was Patsy.<br /><br />She married Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr., who served as a politician at the federal and state levels and was elected a governor of Virginia (1819–1822). They had twelve children together. Martha was very close to her father in his old age. Martha Jefferson Randolph is also the subject of the novel America's First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie, published in March 2016. The novel draws heavily upon Jefferson's letters.

This play is based on Hugh D. McManus’ controversial Award Winning Play for Today “IT COULD'VE HAPPEN TO ANYBODY”<br /> Produced by BOB MCINTOSH Directed by LAURENCE MOODY. BBC Scotland<br /><br /><br /> Paul Donovan. Daily Mail, Wednesday, August 15, 1984<br /><br /><br />IT is rare that two programmes on the same night and made by the same unit in this case BBC Scotland, should conjure such a bleak portrait of a grossly divided society.<br /><br />Gordonstoun. the school where the Queen and Prince Philip sent their sons, may be only 120 miles North-East of the Clydeside’s Council Flats, but it lives in another country far, far away.<br /><br />Fortunately the two programmes did not clash, so the contrast could be seen by all - young Prince Edward talking cheerfully at Gordonstoun about the value of 'beatings and thrashings in the right context’, followed within the hour by Play for Today.<br /><br />Prince Andrew said at the end that the 'rich can learn from the less fortunate’. I doubt he had in mind the McLeod family of It Could've Happen To Anybody, the BBC 1 drama by Greenock-born playwright Hugh D. McManus.<br /><br />This was the other Britain: graffiti-debased wails, boarded-up windows, rubbish-strewn play grounds; alcoholism, violence and unemployment. It must have brought many other viewers near to tears, so merciless was its cruelty.<br />

Your child is the light of your life. You really want to be happy as a parent. So why do you feel like you are losing your mind?

Para muchos niños vulnerables, la idea de hablar con un adulto sobre sus experiencias y sentimientos puede ser una posibilidad descorazonadora. Este libro demuestra cómo el introducir diversión cuando se trabaja con ellos ayuda a construir una auténtica relación de confianza.<br /><br />Un libro práctico, sensible, con más de 40 estrategias e ideas sencillas, de fácil adaptación y muy útil para trabajar directamente con niños en situación de acoso o vulnerabilidad. Su lectura convencerá a cualquier persona integrante de los colectivos dedicados al cuidado de la infancia y la juventud, por los beneficios de sus actividades creativas. Incluye numerosas historias reales que ilustran vivamente el placer de los niños por ser capaces de comunicarse por sí mismos.<br /><br />Aunque no esquiva la realidad más dura de los peligros y presiones que muchos niños experimentan, ofrece una amplia variedad de ejercicios para afrontar los puntos serios sobre protección de menores. La detallada descripción de las actividades se apoya en la extensa información de las autoras sobre el mundo infantil y juvenil.<br /><br />Actualmente se detecta una carencia de literatura que pueda ayudar a los profesionales de la acción social para hacer su trabajo, por ello es importante esta obra que, combina adecuadamente conocimientos teóricos y herramientas prácticas. Especialmente interesante para educadores, trabajadores sociales, estudiantes e incluso a profesionales experimentados.

<b>Les aventures quotidiennes d'un homme qui découvre la paternité !</b><br /><br />Avant, j’étais niais : je pensais que la nuit c’était fait pour dormir, l’argent, pour les loisirs et le temps libre, pour les potes. Heureusement, j’ai eu des enfants pour me mettre du plomb dans la tête, la tête sur les épaules et les épaules sur les genoux.<br />Ma vie a basculé une première fois lors d’une belle nuit d’été. Bon, pas de bol, j’ai hérité d’une fille et je suis passé du côté obscur de la Force. J’ai découvert un monde jusqu’ici inconnu. Un monde où le rose est une couleur primaire, où il faut démêler les cheveux et assortir les barrettes aux chaussettes. Et puis rebelote, une seconde fille. J’ai redécouvert les joies des gazouillis, des sourires sans dent, des câlins qui sentent bon le bébé – ou qui puent le caca. Et aussi qu’on peut, sans aucune somation, se faire gentiment gerber dessus par un bébé tout sourire, de préférence bien sûr, une fois la chemise enfilée et la cravate nouée.<br />J’ai découvert aussi la puissance de l’amour et l’angoisse que cela procure. J’ai survécu à deux grossesses et mon vocabulaire s’est enrichi de mots sympas qui rapportent un max au Scrabble (Colostrum ; Lanugo ; Vernyx ; Primipare...). J’ai testé aussi la puissance des hormones et je m’en remets à peine. (Oh putain !)<br />Cette histoire, c’est la mienne, mais sans doute un peu aussi la vôtre. Elle est garantie sans mauvaise foi aucune et absolument sans exagération. J-A-M-A-I-S. Ce n’est pas mon genre.<br />Inclus : Le test ultime, « Quel papa êtes vous ? » et un glossaire pour savoir tout ce qui vous attend.<br /><br /><b>Un témoignage drôle et authentique sur la vie de parent !</b><br /><br />EXTRAIT<br /><br />Pourquoi quelqu’un de normalement constitué, avec un cerveau à peu près irrigué et une perception un tant soit peu lucide de la marche du monde, cherche-t-il à se reproduire ? Pourquoi s’embarquer dans cette galère ?<br />Quel est cet instinct primaire qui pousse deux humains consentants à essayer d’en fabriquer un troisième en faisant fi du réchauffement climatique, des guerres, des gosses qui meurent de faim en Afrique, de l’inflation, des dettes souveraines et de la difficulté à trouver une place de parking ? Pourquoi vouloir être trois quand déjà, à deux, ce n’est pas simple ?<br />Je dois donc être totalement débile. Car j’ai voulu, et obtenu, avec le concours actif d’une charmante femme, deux enfants. Deux petites filles. La plus grande a bientôt quatre ans, la plus petite pas encore un an. Elles sont mon bonheur, ma vie, ma joie, ma félicité de tout instant. J’aime ma famille, ma vie qu’elles conjuguent au féminin pluriel. Mais, c’est vrai, parfois, je me dis que je n’aurais pas dû arrêter les capotes.<br /><br />CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE<br /><br />Bref comment trouver sa place de père lors des premières années de ses enfants ? Un récit personnel et enlevé qui finit en grand cri d’amour pour sa femme et ses 2 petites filles. - <b>Daïc Audouit, <i>France 3</i></b><br /><br />À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR<br /><br /><b>Sébastien Thomas</b>, 30 ans, est journaliste présentateur à France Télévisions.<br />Il est le papa de deux filles de 4 et 1 an. En 2011, avant la naissance de son premier enfant, il décide de raconter son histoire sur internet et ouvre le blog « papapoule.net » qu’il poursuit encore aujourd’hui. Ce livre en est largement inspiré.<br />Retrouvez également « Papa Poule » sur Facebook et Twitter.
