            Being Zen(ish) is what we call it - and it's the ish that we endorse! Teresa Palmer and Sarah Wright Olsen are two mums from opposite sides of the world who are doing their best to raise happy, empathetic children while working, travelling and maintaining their sanity. With six k...ids between them, the founders of the much-loved Your Zen Mama blog know as well as anyone that motherhood doesn't exist in the highlight reel of life, and that finding even a fleeting semblance of calm amongst the epic ebbs and flows of being a parent is usually all you can hope for! So, forget perfection and prepare to get real, vulnerable and dirty (mostly from guacamole) with Sarah and Teresa as they delve into their journeys of motherhood and share some of the knowledge they've collected over the years from the Your Zen Mama community, from their expert mentors and through being in the trenches of parenthood themselves. From prepping for pregnancy all the way through to birth, the first twelve weeks with your newborn and figuring out the kind of parent you want to be long-term, they share their personal struggles, joyful moments and hard-won realisations. Whether it's dealing with fertility challenges or pregnancy loss, riding out a long and complicated labour or juggling multiple kids (and work!), these mamas have been through it - and have written this gorgeous book to help you find your own glimpses of Zen along the way, too.

            Intercultural Parenting: How Eastern and Western Parenting Styles Affect Child Development

            How do parenting styles differ globally? How do different, international, parenting practices impact on children's development? Can we bring together and hybridise different international parenting styles? Intercultural Parenting explores the relationship between family, culture ...and parenting by reviewing established and evolving Western and Eastern parenting styles and their impact on children's development. Authoritarian, authoritative, permissive and neglecting approaches, as well as newer techniques such as helicopter parenting are compared with filial, tiger and training approaches, and mixed parenting styles. Practical application sections show how cultural understanding can help demonstrate how professionals might use the information and ideas in their clinical work, whilst parental questionnaires encourage self-assessment and reflection. Dr. Foo Koong Hean brings together the traditional and evolving approaches to the art of parenting practices and also showcases relatively neglected research on Eastern parenting practices. This book is important reading for childcare professionals such as health visitors, early years' teachers and those in mental health, as well as students in family studies and developmental psychology.

            From Huckleberry Finn to Peter Pan, from the Famous Five to The Secret Garden, we have always envisaged an idyllic and happy childhood taking place outdoors. We nostalgically recall the pre-Internet, pre-Playstation days of tree-climbing, tadpole-fishing, bike-riding and wide gre...en spaces and agonise about the new generation's 'nature deficit disorder'. And yet, for all our middle-class handwringing over the disappearance of a greener yesteryear, the statistics are truly alarming: children can't identify the commonest of birds or plants, or even where food comes from; they are confined to home, shop, school and car. Children are increasingly alienated, not only from green spaces, but from the independence to play outside. The more we consider contemporary childhood, the more complex the picture becomes. In this timely and approachable book, Patrick Barkham explores the role that wild things - and the freedom to run wild - shape children and our understanding of the way children develop. It combines Patrick's own experience growing up in the countryside and his experience of bringing up his own children with vivid nature writing, rich cultural history and a measured investigation of the vast body of psychological and sociological research that has been carried out in this field. It will challenge cliches about nature and modernity while offering a rich and varied picture of childhood and the 'wild' child.

            Human Development and Human Life
             

            Human Development and Human Life (Paperback, 1st ed. 2016)

            • RRP: $133.99

            • In Stock US

            This book begins with a discussion of the human life cycle and then uses that discussion and other ideas to paint a general picture of what human lives are like. While the first part looks at human development and change, the second part of the book explores what all human lives ...are like. Philosophical ideas and methods are central to this book, although it is difficult to subcategorize it into any familiar subdiscipline of philosophy. It draws on modern concepts from psychology and social science in order to portray an image of human life and lives and to enable readers to easily understand the notion of human development in a very specific and directed way. Although cognitive development and the development of motor skills are two examples of forms of human development, this book homes in on a particular, and arguably more synoptic, way of seeing our development, which is in relation to and occurs within the human life cycle. This book is an enlightening read for a broad range of philosophy scholars, articulating and defending a view that is neither as pessimistic nor as optimistic about human life as previous views have been.
