<p><b>The mental well-being of children and adults is shockingly poor. Marc Brackett, author of <i>Permission to Feel</i>, knows why. And he knows what we can do. </b><br /><i>"We have a crisis on our hands, and its victims are our children."</i></p><p>Marc Brackett is a professor in Yale University鈥檚 Child Study Center and founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. In his 25 years as an emotion scientist, he has developed a remarkably effective plan to improve the lives of children and adults 鈥?a blueprint for understanding our emotions and using them wisely so that they help, rather than hinder, our success and well-being. The core of his approach is a legacy from his childhood, from an astute uncle who gave him permission to feel. He was the first adult who managed to see Marc, listen to him, and recognize the suffering, bullying, and abuse he鈥檇 endured. And that was the beginning of Marc鈥檚 awareness that what he was going through was temporary. He wasn鈥檛 alone, he wasn鈥檛 stuck on a timeline, and he wasn鈥檛 鈥渨rong鈥?to feel scared, isolated, and angry. Now, best of all, he could do something about it.</p><p>In the decades since, Marc has led large research teams and raised tens of millions of dollars to investigate the roots of emotional well-being. His prescription for healthy children (and their parents, teachers, and schools) is a system called RULER, a high-impact and fast-effect approach to understanding and mastering emotions that has already transformed the thousands of schools that have adopted it. RULER has been proven to reduce stress and burnout, improve school climate, and enhance academic achievement. This book is the culmination of Marc鈥檚 development of RULER and his way to share the strategies and skills with readers around the world. It is tested, and it works.</p><p>This book combines rigor, science, passion and inspiration in equal parts. Too many children and adults are suffering; they are ashamed of their feelings and emotionally unskilled, but they don鈥檛 have to be. Marc Brackett鈥檚 life mission is to reverse this course, and this book can show you how.</p>

<b><b>The untold story of the root cause of America's education crisis--and the seemingly endless cycle of multigenerational poverty.</b></b><br /><br />It was only after years within the education reform movement that Natalie Wexler stumbled across a hidden explanation for our country's frustrating lack of progress when it comes to providing every child with a quality education. The problem wasn't one of the usual scapegoats: lazy teachers, shoddy facilities, lack of accountability. It was something no one was talking about: the elementary school curriculum's intense focus on decontextualized reading comprehension "skills" at the expense of actual <i>knowledge</i>. In the tradition of Dale Russakoff's <i>The Prize </i>and Dana Goldstein's <i>The Teacher Wars</i>, Wexler brings together history, research, and compelling characters to pull back the curtain on this fundamental flaw in our education system--one that fellow reformers, journalists, and policymakers have long overlooked, and of which the general public, including many parents, remains unaware. <br /><br />But <i>The Knowledge Gap</i> isn't just a story of what schools have gotten so wrong--it also follows innovative educators who are in the process of shedding their deeply ingrained habits, and describes the rewards that have come along: students who are not only excited to learn but are also acquiring the knowledge and vocabulary that will enable them to succeed. If we truly want to fix our education system and unlock the potential of our neediest children, we have no choice but to pay attention.

<b> A counselor and popular <i>Washington Post </i>contributor offers a new take on grades 6-8 as a distinct developmental phase--and the perfect time to set up kids to thrive.</b><br /><br />Middle school is its own important, distinct territory, and yet it's either written off as an uncomfortable rite of passage or lumped in with other developmental phases. Based on her many years working in schools, professional counselor Phyllis Fagell sees these years instead as a critical stage that parents can't afford to ignore (and though "middle school" includes different grades in various regions, Fagell maintains that the ages make more of a difference than the setting). Though the transition from childhood to adolescence can be tough for kids, this time of rapid physical, intellectual, moral, social, and emotional change is a unique opportunity to proactively build character and confidence. <br />Fagell helps parents use the middle school years as a low-stakes training ground to teach kids the key skills they'll need to thrive now and in the future, including making good friend choices, negotiating conflict, regulating their own emotions, be their own advocates, and more. To answer parents' most common questions and struggles with middle school-aged children, Fagell combines her professional and personal expertise with stories and advice from prominent psychologists, doctors, parents, educators, school professionals, and middle schoolers themselves.

鈥淒rop the flashcards鈥攇rit, character, and curiosity matter even more than cognitive skills. A persuasive wake-up call.鈥濃€?lt;i>People</i><br /><br />Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in <i>How Children Succeed</i>, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control.<br /><br /><i>How Children Succeed</i> introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories鈥攁nd the stories of the children they are trying to help鈥擳ough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people鈥檚 lives.

This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.<br /><br />鈥淚lluminates the extremes of American childhood: for rich kids, a safety net drawn so tight it鈥檚 a harness; for poor kids, almost nothing to break their fall.鈥濃€?lt;i>New York Times</i><br /><br />鈥淚 learned so much reading this book and I came away full of hope about how we can make life better for all kinds of kids.鈥濃€?lt;i>Slate</i>

<h4>This is a book about how to have fun and stop worrying about your kids. How? Use the world-renowned Harvard case method in its bare bones.</h4><br /><h4>Parenting Problems</h4><br /><ol><br /><li>Do you worry about your child鈥檚 future?</li><br /><li>Do you want practical ideas for everyday parenting?</li><br /><li>Do you need help in dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears?</li><br /><li>Have you read parenting books but often feel at a loss?</li><br /><li>Do you prefer the simplest, proven methods?</li><br /><li>Do you believe in teaching your child to think for himself?</li><br /><li>Do you want to bond with your child?</li><br /></ol><br /><h4>The Help</h4><br /><p>Hi! I am Anne, the author. If you answered a YES to any of the ten questions, this book might help on your parenting journey.</p><br /><p>I answered YES to ALL of those questions. I was searching for a simple, universal, and easy-to-apply parenting approach for everyday use. The solution I describe in my parenting book has been around for 2500 years. It鈥檚 just that nobody has explained how to use it with children, in everyday parenting. This parenting tool is no secret, many of us have used the approach in some form or another, not even knowing we were parenting with the case method!</p><br /><h4>The Proven Method</h4><br /><p><em>The Case Method Miracle</em> is not about the Harvard case method in the traditional sense, and you do not have to be a Harvard graduate to use the case method in the parenting setting. In fact, if you think you have to have a degree from Harvard to parent successfully, then my parenting book is not for you. I am sharing my parenting experience as a mom to mom, not as a parenting expert.</p><br /><p>The teaching and parenting expertise and the proof to this parenting approach come from Socrates, the father of teaching from ancient Greece over 2,500 years ago. In fact, this parenting book is as much for fathers as for mothers, for caregivers and teachers.</p><br /><h4>The Simplified Method</h4><br /><p>Over the two years I studied at Harvard Business School, I analyzed and discussed over 500 case studies. They follow a certain structure. I took that structure and stripped it to its core elements. They include the main character, the situation description, and the question. Instead of twenty-page descriptions of business situations, the cases in my book are one-minute stories with a simple question.</p><br /><h4>Benefits</h4><br /><p><strong>Children</strong>; the case method parenting approach benefits:</p><br /><ul><br /><li>Children <strong>stay out of trouble</strong> because they learn to think for themselves, own their decisions, and take pride in them.</li><br /><li>Children <strong>grow self-confidence</strong> because they learn they can face what life brings, with confidence.</li><br /><li>Children <strong>develop mental grit</strong>, the ability to stand firm under peer pressure, something that becomes more and more important as the children grow up.</li><br /><li>Children <strong>develop early literacy</strong> by hearing and being heard, a crucial aspect to literacy development.</li><br /></ul><br /><p><strong>Parents</strong>; the case method parenting approach benefits:</p><br /><ul><br /><li>Parents learn how to <strong>use a proven method</strong> in its simplest form for a best parenting tool.</li><br /><li>Parents can <strong>provide a safe environment</strong> for discussions with their child鈥攅ven difficult ones鈥攂ecause the stories are in third person.</li><br /><li>Parents <strong>bond with their child</strong>, because they are sharing with their child from the child鈥檚 perspective, communicating not just with love and logic, but with love and care, favorites for every child.</li><br /></ul>

<p><strong>In a life filled with adventure from east to west, Claire E. Hallinan has emerged as one whom she has longed for. As an elementary school teacher鈥攖he first college graduate in her native Japanese family to serve in that role in the U.S.鈥攜et she wasn鈥檛 fulfilled until mindfulness came into her life. While noticing each small present moment throughout a day, her agonizing childhood memories are spilling out one by one like scenes in a movie. 聽聽As her perspectives on her students and daily routines gradually change the ways beyond the text books by taking a moment to breathe, she is connecting closer to herself little by little, and not knowingly, with others. Along the way, she gains gratitude for people, opportunities, and experiences that have shaped her. </strong></p><p><br /></p><p><strong>In her memoir, a work of unique reflection on almost forgotten daily events and intriguing storytelling, Claire E. Hallinan invites readers into her world, self-talking behind her smiles with her students, vividly painful experiences of which she couldn鈥檛 speak up 鈥攆rom her childhood in Japan --- to her early life as a dreamy pre-schooler who wished to become French, to her school years spent at strict stereotypical Japanese school systems. With a courageous voice that hasn鈥檛 been spoken and a feisty soul, she describes her moments of unfairness, disappointments, and some brightness, both traditional Japanese family and schools, telling her inner child鈥檚 perspective as she has overcame鈥攊n her own unique way---connecting present and past. Bitter, sour, yet a little sweet, Gift of Gratitude is the personal revolution of a girl of resilience and curiosity who has steadily searched a gift in one鈥檚 life 鈥攁nd whose gratitude inspires us to view the world with a peaceful mind.</strong><br /></p>
