If your toddler is staying dry through their naps, are able to undress quickly in order to go, and are aware of and articulate their bodily functions, then your child is exhibiting the signs that they’re ready to begin potty training. However, don’t get rid of those diapers just yet. There’s still plenty of work to be done. <br />First, you need to establish the right mindset for you and your child during this exciting phase. Then, you need to get to it and show them. Finally, find the right materials. <br />Let your toddler know you support all of his or her blossoming maturity by praising feats such as sharing toys and drinking from a cup without spilling it. Don’t demand too much, though. If your child feels pressure to perform, he or she might begin pining for the simpler days of being younger and act in accordance.

Accepting the news of having a child with special needs doesn’t typically come easily and it’s a nuanced time that requires special care. Society dictates how to prepare for raising children, and we’re often left out of that equation, forced to mourn something we never knew we didn’t have in the first place.

<p><b>A powerful and inspiring examination of the connection between the potential for great talent and conditions commonly thought to be “disabilities,” revealing how the source of our struggles can be the origin of our greatest strengths. </b></p><p>In <i>The Power of Different</i>, psychiatrist and bestselling author Gail Saltz examines the latest scientific discoveries, profiles famous geniuses who have been diagnosed with all manner of brain “problems”—including learning disabilities, ADD, anxiety, Depression, Bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and Autism—and tells the stories of lay individuals to demonstrate how specific deficits in certain areas of the brain are directly associated with the potential for great talent. Saltz shows how the very conditions that cause people to experience difficulty at school, in social situations, at home, or at work, are inextricably bound to creative, disciplinary, artistic, empathetic, and cognitive abilities.</p><p> In this pioneering work, readers will find engaging scientific research and stories from historical geniuses and everyday individuals who have not only made the most of their conditions, but who have flourished <i>because</i> of them. They are leaning into their brain differences to: </p><p> *Identify areas of interest and expertise<br /> *Develop work arounds<br /> *Create the environments that best foster their talents<br /> *Forge rewarding interpersonal relationships</p><p> Enlightening and inspiring, <i>The Power of Different</i> proves that the unique wiring of every brain can be a source of strength and productivity, and contributes to the richness of our world.</p>

<div><B>They were the most prominent American family of the twentieth century. The daughter they secreted away made all the difference.</B><BR><br /> Joe and Rose Kennedy’s strikingly beautiful daughter Rosemary attended exclusive schools, was presented as a debutante to the Queen of England, and traveled the world with her high-spirited sisters. And yet, Rosemary was intellectually disabled — a secret fiercely guarded by her powerful and glamorous family. <div> <div>Major new sources — Rose Kennedy’s diaries and correspondence, school and doctors' letters, and exclusive family interviews — bring Rosemary alive as a girl adored but left far behind by her competitive siblings. Kate Larson reveals both the sensitive care Rose and Joe gave to Rosemary and then — as the family’s standing reached an apex — the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly intractable in her early twenties. Finally, Larson illuminates Joe’s decision to have Rosemary lobotomized at age twenty-three, and the family's complicity in keeping the secret. <div> <div><i>Rosemary </i>delivers a profoundly moving coda: JFK visited Rosemary for the first time while campaigning in the Midwest; she had been living isolated in a Wisconsin institution for nearly twenty years. Only then did the siblings understand what had happened to Rosemary and bring her home for loving family visits. It was a reckoning that inspired them to direct attention to the plight of the disabled, transforming the lives of millions.</div></div></div></div></div>
