Now in its second edition, Raising Our Children’s Children has been updated to include recent social developments, such as the trend toward multigenerational family living where children, their parents, and their grandparents all live under one roof.

In this “lively, provocative and well-researched book” (Theodore Sizer), Alfie Kohn builds a powerful argument against the “back to basics” philosophy of teaching and simplistic demands to “raise the bar.” Drawing on stories from real classrooms and extensive research, Kohn shows parents, educators, and others interested in the debate how schools can help students explore ideas rather than filling them with forgettable facts and preparing them for standardized tests. Here at last is a book that challenges the two dominant forces in American education: an aggressive nostalgia for traditional teaching (“If it was bad enough for me, it’s bad enough for my kids”) and a heavy-handed push for Tougher Standards.

"My mommy didn't carry me in her tummy, she carried me in her heart." Bailey, a 5-years old who was adopted from China. Her story is included in this book. According to People magazine, parents from all over the country seek adoption expert and Worldwide Orphans Foundation founder Dr. Jane Aronson’s help “as if consulting a master detective.” Angelina Jolie praised Dr. Aronson’s “drive and ambition to help children dream” (Elle). Indeed, over the course of the past three decades, Dr. Aronson has touched the lives of thousands of adopted children from around the world and in this inspiring book she presents moving first-person testimonies from parents (and a few children themselves) whose lives have been blessed by adoption. Divided into thematic sections—such as "The Decision," "The Journey," and "The Moment We Met")—each prefaced by Dr. Aronson, this book introduces readers to Claude Knobler, a writer from Los Angeles whose journey to Ethiopia to adopt his son led to an unexpectedly moving encounter with the boy’s courageous birthmother; actor Mary Louise-Parker whose older adopted son’s bond with her newly adopted baby daughter was deep and unwavering from the instant the two children met; and Lynn Danzker, an entrepreneur who set off alone to adopt her son, Cole, and in the process, met and married her husband. The authors of these testimonies range from doctors to filmmakers, from financial consultants to celebrities—all of them bound by their moving and transformative experience as adoptive parents.

This book is a selection of short articles that appeared during a two year period as posts on the blog, goodenoughmothering.com. Author, Dr. Elaine Heffner, has been involved in parent education for many years. In this book she addresses many of the concerns of mothers in particular, and discusses many of the questions they ask her. The issues addressed here are divided into six categories: Mother Worries, Developmental Steps, Conflicts, Feelings, About Parents and Social Pressures. For example, Mother Worries includes such topics as the wish of mothers to be perfect, the guilt they feel about their handling of their children, and the anger that is aroused by childrens provocative behavior. Developmental Steps covers such topics as setting User Friendly Limits for children, their difficulties with transitions, and aggression. Dr. Heffner points up the role of parents in setting expectations that match childrens developmental capabilities at various stages. The focus is on parents own ability to help children over what she calls bumps in development. The section on Conflicts discusses the confrontations that arise between parents and children due to the conflict between the wishes and needs of each. An understanding of these differences is offered as a means of helping to avoid or resolve such conflicts. The section on Feelings points up the feelings that children stir-up in parents which are a significant factor in the confrontations that arise. The ways in which parents can address childrens feelings is also addressed. The sections About Parents and Social Pressures discusses many of the criticisms that have been leveled at parents in recent years, much of it based on developmental research, and points out the many areas in which parents need to feel comfortable using their own judgment. The book offers parents new ways in which to understand their children which can help them answer many of their own questions. Understanding, not prescriptive advice is the underlying theme of the book.

Beyond practical parenting and good behavior “how-to’s,” Next Level Parenting takes the reader beneath the surface to the heart and soul of the child where the most profound transformations take root. It teaches parents to use discernment, wisdom, and courage as they place as much focus and effort on addressing what is happening in the spirit realm as they do in the physical realm. In a world where a battle for the hearts and minds of the next generation is raging, parents learn to stand in the gap, armed and ready spiritually to do battle on their child’s behalf.
