Nobody wishes to be free of obsessive-compulsive disorder more than the person who suffers from it. You're not alone if you worry a lot because your kid has habits you can't seem to break, even if it may feel that way at times.

The “Parenting Teens with OCD” includes all the relevant information to help your kids control negative thoughts, let go of anxious sensations, and halt difficult-to-stop behaviors to get back to doing what they enjoy.

Each chapter opens with a part that assists teenagers and their parents/caregivers focus on specific issues and developing skills for tuning out obsessions and resisting compulsions. The sections that follow demonstrate how to be helpful without interfering.

You may not know anybody else who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms such as the urge to wash their hands continually, check to be sure everything is okay, count items, put things in order, or even repeat ideas recurrently.

When your kid is stressed or anxious, rituals like these can help them relax, but you already know that the respite is only short, and they'll have to repeat the process when they're feeling uneasy again. This loop might make them feel trapped, yet breaking it may seem impossible or even terrifying.

“As I’ve mentioned, the problem with seeing the world through worldly eyes is that evil disappears from your view. Yet it never really disappears. You think that you are walking in a kingdom of light, but in reality, you are walking in the wrong kingdom – and you don’t even know it. And the problem with walking in the wrong kingdom is that sometimes that kingdom can come and start to walk in us. We may not even realize it - but sooner or later - we begin to figure it out.”................

The James Family had it all: Dad, a dashing Navy fighter pilot, now skillfully flying commercial planes; Mom, a compassionate small town attorney with her own law firm. Their 4 children completed the picture: smart, athletic, successful, beautiful. This is the perfect story of how, by American standards, they had finally 'arrived'. Yet, it is also the story of how while living the American Dream, they woke up in a nightmare. And in this nightmare, life unraveled as they desperately fought to save their children - from hell itself. Join them as they equip you for the same battle.

............“… never in a million lifetimes would I have guessed that within 2 short years…; I would be back at the little cottage… – and that I would have one hand holding desperately to Christ and the other trying to pull my daughter back from the pits of hell. I was in a tug-a-war with demonic creatures that I had had no clue of until they manifested - and attacked. All I knew was that I could not let go - if I was dragged into hell itself. I would not, and could not, let go. For this was my child, flesh of my flesh and heart of my heart. Even though I no longer recognized her - I knew that she was in there somewhere. And if Satan had her captive, then by gum, he had me too; but unlike Rachel - I was still able to fight.”

Thirty daily readings to build up your confidence and cheerfulness as you homeschool.

Homeschool days can be long and hard. It's easy to lose sight of what's actually happening in the midst of the day to day. Even when we lose our vision, God does not lose His. While we attempt to teach and disciple our children, we find that it is ourselves needing the instruction and discipleship. We also find that God provides both, using our decision to homeschool to draw us closer to Himself. To continue with love and perseverance, we need confidence not in our work but in God’s. These thirty readings will lift up your eyes and spirit so you can focus on what truly matters while doing the daily work of educating your kids.

"This volume is a wonderful resource of wisdom for moms everywhere who struggle and wonder if they are doing enough.” —Cindy Rollins, author of Mere Motherhood

The authors of the New York Times bestseller Whale Done! offer five simple and effective principles for coping with any parenting challenge.

Most parents feel frustrated with their children from time to time, but killer whale trainer-in-training Amy Sheldrake has a unique perspective. She marvels at the complex behaviors her superiors are able to coax out of these enormous beasts, while she and her husband struggle to make their beloved—and much smaller—son Josh obey what seem like the simplest rules.

What does training killer whales have to do with raising children? As this engrossing and unique parenting fable shows, more than you’d think. In their New York Times bestseller Whale Done!, Ken Blanchard and his coauthors—including two veteran marine mammal trainers—showed how positive training concepts used at places like SeaWorld could be adapted to the workplace. In this new book they apply these same principles to parenting. Once Amy and Matt get the hang of the five Whale Done principles, they see a dramatic difference in overcoming challenges like following bedtime routines, dealing with tantrums, introducing new foods, sharing, avoiding overuse of the word no, learning to care for a pet, and instituting time-outs.

Whale Done is much more than a set of techniques; it is a way of looking at people and seeing the best that is in them. Great leaders, saints, and sages have developed this skill. Since most of us are less advanced than those paragons, this book can serve as a guide for how to bring out the best in our children

How would they homeschool their teens, knowing that they would not pursue college or university after homeschool? REINVENTION! Both Cindy and Natalie learned, in their respective homeschool journeys, if there were no paths meant for their teens…then they would begin BLAZING NEW HOMESCHOOL TRAILS!
