We just want the 140-character version of what we should do when our kids' behavior scrapes the enamel off our sanity.

<h3>Codependent partners are not necessarily together because they <b>want</b> to be, they are because they <b>have</b> to be...</h3><br /><br />If you’ve had difficulty with starting or maintaining relationships, issues with feeling jealous and possessive or find that your connections with others are more a source of distress than anything else, <i>this book is for you</i>. <br /><br />It may feel sometimes that an intense and serious connection with someone is proof of the depth of the feeling you have for one another. But be careful, obsession and dependency is not the same as love. <br /><br />In the codependent relationship, our affection and attention is coming from a place of fear and need. As a result, the partners never really connect with each other. They do endless, complicated dances around each others problems, but what they never do is make an honest human connection.<br /><br />In codependent relationships, manipulation, guilt and resentment take the place of healthy, balanced affection. Codependent partners are not necessarily together because they want to be, they are because they <i>have to be</i>, because they don’t know how to live otherwise. <br /><br />One partner may bring a history of abuse, a “personality disorder” or mental illness into a relationship; the ways the other partner responds to this may be healthy or not, but if they bring their own issues to the table too, they may find that the bond of their love is more accurately described as a shared and complementary dysfunction.<br /><br />Remember, the relationships we are in can never be better than the relationships we have with ourselves. Two unhappy people together never make a happy couple together. We cannot treat other people in ways we have never taken the time to consider before, and we cannot communicate properly if we are not even sure what it is we need to communicate in the first place. <br /><br />An individual with a mature, well-developed sense of themselves has the most to offer someone else. They have their own lives, their own sense of self-worth, their own strength. And when you remove need, fear, obsession and desperation, you open up the way for love and affection just for its own sake. <br /><br />Love is many things, but it’s cheapened when held hostage by the ego. Connections formed around ego and fear may be strong and lasting, but what keeps them going is mutual need. What could be more romantic than, “I don’t need to be with you. You don’t complete me at all. I am happy and stable and fulfilled without you. But I still want to be with you, because you’re awesome”?<br /><br />It all boils down to this: <i>communication</i>. <br /><br />Whether it’s through words or not, we are constantly communicating, and the accumulation of these little units creates this big thing we call <i>a relationship</i>.

An Unexpected Story of Hope and Perseverance... As a young child, it was obvious something was wrong with Michael. He lacked basic motor skills and was unable to follow simple instructions or answer questions. Testing revealed a diagnosis of autism with a low IQ. Experts insisted that leading an independent life would be impossible for him…and school was not an option. Supported by documentation and interviews, Michael’s heartfelt memoir traces the sustained challenges and turbulent journey he faced. His life was plagued by failures, negative results, rejections from schools, an inability to complete simple karate moves or participate in activities—all of which confirmed the hopeless situation. But Michael was surrounded by support, and he was encouraged to keep trying no matter how many times he failed. Developmental progress was not always obvious, but Michael was finding his own unique path. What Autism Gave Me is a powerful reminder that the human drive to succeed is stronger than any diagnosis.

<b>Stress is a lot like love – hard to define, but you know it when you feel it...</b><br /><br />This book will explore the nature of stress and how it infiltrates every level of your life, including the physical, emotional, cognitive, relational and even spiritual. You’ll find ways to nurture resilience, rationality and relaxation in your everyday life, and learn how to loosen the grip of worry and anxiety. Through techniques that get to the heart of your unique stress response, and an exploration of how stress can affect your relationships, you'll discover how you can control stress instead of letting it control you. <br /><br />But this book is <b>not</b> just another “anti-stress” book. Here, we will <b>not</b> be concerned with only reducing the symptoms of stress. Rather, we'll try to understand exactly what stress is and the role it plays in our lives. <br /><br />We'll attempt to <i>dig deep</i> to really understand the real sources of our anxiety and how to take ownership of them. Using the power of habit and several techniques for smoothing out the stressful wrinkles in our day-to-day lives, we'll move towards a real-world solution to living with less stress, more confidence and a deep spiritual resilience that will insulate you from the inevitable pressures of life. <br /><br />By adopting a trusting, open and relaxed attitude, we'll bring something more of <i>ourselves</i> to relationships of all kinds. This book will take a look at dating and relationships without stress and worry, as well as ways to bring tranquility and balance into your home and family life. <br /><br />We will address physical, emotional, relational, spiritual, and cognitive and behavioral symptoms of stress. While most stress-management solutions offer relief for symptoms in only one or two of the above areas, this book will show you how all five areas are important, and a successful stress solution will touch on <i>each of them</i>.<br /><br /><i><b>We each only have one life - here's to spending it wisely!</b></i><br /><br /><h3><b><i>Grab your copy today!</i></b></h3>

<b>Peek inside the ups and downs of a real-life Asperger's marriage.</b><br /><br />In this fearless collection of smart and funny true stories, Tom and Linda Peters bring humor and heart to the subject of Asperger's Syndrome.<br /><br />As real-life counterparts to the fictional couple in Graeme Simsion's <i>The Rosie Project</i>, Tom and Linda give readers a candid and hilarious look into their socially awkward Asperger's marriage. Raw and personal, these humorous bite-sized essays are dedicated to everyone who (despite their best efforts) seems to blurt out inappropriate facts and say odd things at precisely the wrong time.<br /><br />Read this Book to Learn Useful Life Skills Like:<br /><br /><ul><li>Why Watching Spawning Fish Might Not Be the Best Idea for a First Date</li><li>How to Get Your Asperger's Husband to Happily Load the Dishwasher with One Simple Tweak of Language</li><li>How to Rescue Your Wife from a Wild Opossum with One Phone Call</li><li>How to Put the World Back Together Again When You Wake Up in a Sea of Hawaiian Shirts</li></ul><div></div><br />At just five years old, composer and GRAMMY®-nominated classical musician Tom Peters first suspected that there was something wrong with him. He couldn't figure out what it was, though, because he was busy conducting Tchaikovsky's <i>1812 Overture</i> with an orchestra of teddy bears lined up on his racecar bed.<br /><br />Like the author of <i>The Journal of Best Practices</i>, Tom went looking for answers as an adult. With Linda, the love of his life, he hoped to find out why people were so much harder to understand than 16th Century counterpoint or basic quantum physics. At the age of 47, Tom was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning form or autism.<br /><br />Being unable to understand nonverbal communication or how you relate to other people around you can lead to situations that are full of both humor and pain. Like Higashida's <i>The Reason I Jump</i>, this book helps people to better understand what goes on inside the mind of someone on the spectrum.<br /><br />If you're feeling a little socially awkward, you're not alone. Whether you're an introvert, have social anxiety, or have been labeled with an acronym like ADD, OCD, ADHD, NVLD, PTSD or ASD, we all have the same human needs to feel loved, respected and understood. The practical strategies employed in these little stories can be used immediately to help you find better ways to communicate and finally feel heard.<br /><br />If you identified with Jenny Lawson's laugh-out-loud books about living with depression and anxiety, you won't want to miss <i>Our Socially Awkward Marriage</i>. This humorous and inspiring read will make you laugh, cry and feel empowered. And it will stay with you long after you finish reading about why pugs in Christmas sweaters should rarely be squeezed.<br /><br />Scroll up and get your copy now!

<b>“Budget" - it's a meager little word, one that all too often comes after <i>“tight”</i>...</b><br /><br />Maybe you think of this word as an adjective, something to describe a cheap and substandard car or hotel. “Budget” brings to mind rationing, a kind of money diet. <br /><br />If you're like many people, budgeting is something you do with a kind of deflated spirit: budgeting means bargain bin quality and the sad sense that what you want is going to be just out of reach.<br /><br /><i>This book will try a different approach to budgeting altogether...</i><br /><br />This book will offer an expanded notion of what it means to budget. We'll look at how money is not the only resource that needs to be managed, and a “life budget” that acknowledges your emotional, behavioral, social and even spiritual capital is more likely to lead to smarter decisions.<br /><br />We'll explore shopping and spending habits, identify problem areas, think about debt and make achievable goals for home, work and more. We'll look at concrete ways to put some of these principles into action, and look at resources that will keep you focused and motivated. <br /><br />At the same time, this book is also about the philosophy of minimalism, not thriftiness. If you can pair your budget plan with a more nuanced understanding of your relationship with money and how it ties into how you want to live, the changes you make will be more <i>authentic</i> and longer lasting.<br /><br />Minimalism is not about doing with less than you need. Rather, it's about finding what you need and fulfilling that need exactly, without excess. It's a subtle and easily overlooked point: to have exactly enough is not suffering. Budgeting is therefore about understanding what you need to have enough, and how best you can allocate your resources to that end.<br /><br />Life is short. Money and material things can make our time on this earth better, and they can help us move closer to what we find meaningful and worthwhile. But they are <i>not</i> meaningful and worthwhile in themselves. <br /><br />Money is a <i>tool</i> and how we spend it is an expression of our values and what we think is important. <br /><br />How much would you pay for peace of mind and the calm you get from knowing you are living well? How much of your life do you give away when you work? Of all your expenses, have you remembered to include the time you waste stressing about money?<br /><br />These may seem like vague or overly philosophical questions, but they get to the root of how we earn, spend and think of money. Once we understand these roots, our efforts to save here and there not only become easier, they become more <i>meaningful</i>.
