Set between September 01 and 07, 2017<br /><br />I’m sick. I have a cold. I hate colds.<br /><br />This is a diary. It will always contain many real life short stories, but also follows day-to-day events (even when I have a cold). My main goal with this project is to help me sort out my life as it comes and decompress as I get my act together. If I am not honest, especially when it comes to me, my project is meaningless.<br /><br />These stories are true (So, sick.). I do try NOT to exaggerate (even when my head feels like it's going to explode). But, in order to keep everyone’s private lives and issues just that–private, I have changed everyone’s name.<br /><br />Topics that have been on my mind, so I write them down:<br />•How much I hate colds!<br />•The minimum wage and why I needed to look it up.<br />•Free writing practice sheets that I love!<br />•US Treasury Bonds (and why talking about money is IMPORTANT!)

<p><b>When a devastating diagnosis tears author Donnie Kanter Winokur’s family apart, a service dog may be their best hope to stay together.</b></p><p>Donnie Kanter Winokur and her husband, Harvey, never could have imagined the heart-wrenching struggle that becomes their new reality after they decide to adopt two infants from Russia. As Iyal and Morasha grow, it becomes clear that Iyal’s development is drastically lagging behind his sister’s. By age four, he has a devastating diagnosis: fetal alcohol syndrome. But naming their battle provides little relief as Iyal and his family try to cope with the lifelong impact of his invisible disability. As the Winokurs’ marriage is unraveling, Donnie and Harvey hang on to the last shreds of their own promise.</p><p>Desperate to alleviate her son’s constant rages and their crushing toll on the family, Donnie comes up with an innovative, untested, four-pawed solution: a golden retriever service dog named Chancer. Chancer is specially trained to give Iyal a unique love he desperately needs. But in this true-life tale infused with moments of despair, tenderness, and humor, Chancer turns out to be what the entire family has needed to stay—and grow—together.</p>
Trance-Geschichten für Kinder: Ruhe und Kraft, Mut, Selbstbeherr...

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Das Buch enthält eine Einführung in Trance-Geschichten für Kinder sowie sechs Geschichten-Sammlungen: Ruhe und Kraft, Mut, Selbstbeherrschung, Leichtigkeit und Freude, Konzentration, Schlaf. Die Trance-Geschichten führen in die Entspannung und sprechen auf dieser Grundlage psychologisch fundiert Probleme und Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten an.<br />Die Trance-Geschichten sind zum Vorlesen gedacht und können ab dem Vorschulalter sowohl beim einzelnen Kind als auch in der Gruppe eingesetzt werden.<br /><br />Das Wort ‚Trance’ ist abgeleitet vom lateinischen ‚transire’, das ‚überschreiten’ oder ‚hinübergehen’ oder ‚verwandeln’ bedeuten kann. Mit Trance gemeint ist ein besonderer Bewusstseinszustand, der durch eine schlafähnliche eingeengte Aufmerksamkeit gekennzeichnet ist. Trance kann damit als Gegensatz zur Achtsamkeit verstanden werden, die sich durch eine besonders starke Wachheit und eine weite, ungerichtete Aufmerksamkeit auszeichnet.<br />Trance-Geschichten versuchen, mit Trance-Elementen Entspannung zu vertiefen und die Aufnahme etwa von Affirmationen und hilfreichen Vorsätzen, auch einer positiven Auseinandersetzung mit Problemen, zu erleichtern.<br />Wie bei Fantasiereisen oder Imaginationen werden gerne bildhafte Vorstellungen verwendet. Eine Sprache in Bildern reicht meist tiefer als eine abstrakte Sprache mit logischen Begründungen. Alles, was wir wahrnehmen, ob real oder vorgestellt, wirkt auf unseren Körper und auf unseren Geist. Sich in eine schöne Situation zu begeben und diese wahrzunehmen, beruhigt. Beruhigend wirkt auch bereits die Vorstellung der Situation. Eine Vertiefung der Wirkung erfolgt durch das bewusste Wahrnehmen in allen seinen Aspekten, mit allen seinen Sinneseindrücken.<br />Das Buch besteht aus sechs Kapiteln, die jeweils einem bestimmten Thema gewidmet sind. Das erste Kapitel ‚Ruhe und Kraft’ vertieft die Entspannungsfähigkeit. Das zweite Kapitel ‚Mut’ beschäftigt sich mit Schüchternheit und Mut. Das dritte Kapitel ‚Selbstbeherrschung’ hat Selbstkontrolle und den Umgang mit Aggressionen zum Thema. Das vierte Kapitel ‚Leichtigkeit und Freude’ vertieft die Entspannungsfähigkeit und schafft eine positive Stimmung, mit der alles besser gelingt. Das fünfte Kapitel ‚Konzentration’ und das sechste Kapitel ‚Schlaf’ beschäftigen sich besonders mit dem jeweils titelgebenden Thema.

Vaccines: A Reappraisal

Drawing on fifty years of experience caring for children and adults, Dr. Moskowitz examines vaccines and our current policy regarding them. Weaving together a tapestry of observed facts, clinical and basic science research, news reports from the media, and actual cases from his own practice, he offers a systematic review of the subject as a whole.<br /><br /><br />He provides scientific evidence for his clinical impression that the vaccination process, by its very nature, imposes substantial risks of disease, injury, and death that have been persistently denied and covered up by manufacturers, the CDC, and the coterie of doctors who speak for it.<br /><br /><br />With the aim of acknowledging these risks, taking them seriously, understanding them more holistically, and ultimately assessing them on a deeper level, he proposes a nationwide debate based on objective scientific research, including what we already know and what still needs to be investigated in the future. <br /><br /><br />He argues that with no serious public health emergency to justify them, requiring vaccines of everyone deprives us all of genuinely informed consent, and prevents parents from making health-care decisions for our children, basic human rights that we still profess to hold dear. <br /><br /><br />For the present, given the legitimate controversy surrounding the mandates, he proposes that most vaccines simply be made optional and that further research into their risks and benefits be conducted by an independent agency in the public interest, untainted by industry funding, CDC sponsorship, and the quasi-religious sanctimony that is widely invoked on their behalf.

<p><strong>A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviors, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.</strong></p><p>What’s an explosive child? A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration—crying, screaming, swearing, kicking, hitting, biting, spitting, destroying property, and worse. A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help. Most of these parents have tried everything-reasoning, explaining, punishing, sticker charts, therapy, medication—but to no avail. They can’t figure out why their child acts the way he or she does; they wonder why the strategies that work for other kids don’t work for theirs; and they don’t know what to do instead.<br /><br />Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren’t attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren’t passive, permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting. <br /><br />Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. He explains why traditional parenting and treatment often don’t work with these children, and he describes what to do instead. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene’s Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.</p>
