“The helicopter parent has crashed and burned...Sally Koslow [has] documented a generation so cosseted that they have lost the impetus to grow up or leave home. The over-involved parent has gone from paragon of caring to a figure of fun.”—Lisa Endlich Heffernan, The Atlantic Parents once dreamed of dropping their prodigies at first-choice colleges and sighing with relief at a job well done. Nowadays, though, mothers and fathers are stressing about whether Jessica or Josh will boomerang back after graduation—and still be there years later. Why are so many wunderkinds now s-l-o-w-l-y slouching toward adulthood? Panicked after reading that twenty-eight is the new nineteen, Sally Koslow—journalist and mother—searched for answers. Part hard-hitting investigation and part hilarious memoir, Slouching Toward Adulthood is a heartfelt cri de coeur that can help families negotiate life around the unexpectedly crowded dining tables for years to come.

Description:

There are a lot of children (and adults) who struggle with reading. Some are helped by their schools, some are not.In this short booklet, Pamela Brookes shares some of the basic information she wishes she’d had when she was first trying to figure out how to help her child learn to read. Teaching A Struggling Reader is filled with links to informational and product resources for parents or teachers. It is geared to people who want to educate themselves in the methods that are effective in teaching those with a dyslexic learning style. It also contains photos demonstrating basic techniques like “Tapping” (using one’s fingers to aid in sounding out words) and “Making your bed” to differentiate between “b” and “d.”The focus of this book is the reading process. However, since many dyslexic readers also struggle with math, there is a brief description of how the dyslexic brain comes to understand math. There is also a link to a blog by Dr. Meg Burke of Dyslexia Pros. She is a dyslexic learner with a PhD in math education who is dedicated to helping her students attain fluency in math. This is a booklet that can be read in one sitting. However, there are ample links to provide an even greater experience.

Kids will always be kids.

They want to play, run to the fields, watch their favorite cartoons and do fun stuff.

But most of all... they are curious.

They love to ask many questions, of how and why things happen.

So why not take the opportunity and tell them about financial literacy?

Adults are afraid that if they teach so much to a kid at a young age, they will not get their interest. But kids are developing mentally, and are having interesting thoughts.

Give them lessons about a business they can start, and let them do some enterprising and investment. You could even teach them about the rich and poor mindset. Eventually, when they became teens and grown ups, they will earn their own money, and they might even dream to be an entrepreneur and start a business.

Remember that teaching them while they are young can make a great impact while they are growing. Share them the steps and takeaways to reach success.

Studies show that the earlier the children were introduced to money and saving, the more likely they will be good at budgeting when they grow up.

With this book, you will get ideas on how you can teach your kids to save, invest and budget their own money in an entertaining way.

Description:

This book is a collection of short essays written by the mother of a five-year old girl which chronicles events in her life as a parent that inspired her to write despite the crazy life that mothers of kids this age lead. From fretting about the right foods to feed her weaning toddler to feeling elated as her baby starts sampling various foods on her own, the essays in this book attempt to capture the tumultuous mix of worries and joys that is continuously brewing inside a mother’s heart. This mother also happens to be a biologist trying to unravel small mysteries of life. "The quest for a magic potion that curbs ageing and bestows eternal youth is as enduring as that for the holy grail and we often find ourselves checking our hair for that stray grey strand, pinching belly flab post four ab-crunches and promptly reaching out for the new anti-ageing miracle cream on the market. All our efforts are geared towards turning back or at least halting the ticking clock and staying young. However, I least expected this inherent adult pursuit to manifest itself in my three year old daughter. As we sat talking about all that she could do once she turned four she suddenly said out loud, "No, I don't want to be four." To avoid irking her any further I changed the topic."
