Heartwarming stories. This Christian book contains numerous, beautiful stories of Christ-like, selfless love. They are examples of ways that each and every one of us can take the challenge to spread kindness intentionally and apply it to our everyday lives.

We are called to live a life devoted to compassion, one that fulfills the Christian credo to love your neighbour as yourself. This means looking outside ourselves each day to see how we can demonstrate that love for others, just as the people in this inspirational book have done.

Building Self-Esteem in Girls

Guidelines and Advice for Parents and Teachers

Raise self-empowered girls. Studies show that young girls often develop faster than their male counterparts, grasping concepts such as math and sports just as easily─until they reach early adolescence. Then, girls quickly fall behind boys, victims to society's confusing dictates of what being female means. 200 Ways to Raise a Girl's Self-Esteem provides straightforward advice and helpful guidelines for parents and teachers who want to help girls build positive self-images and develop full, exuberant lives.

Learn from a parenting expert. Will Glennon guides you through how to raise a young girl's self-esteem through carefully considered "boosters,” the key to helping girls hold their own in the world. This guide helps you understand the subtle difference between "boosters" and "busters." For example, complimenting a young woman on her appearance may give her the idea that she is valued only for her looks, whereas complimenting her ability to complete a complicated homework assignment boosts her confidence in her intelligence. Find ways to impart a strong sense of self-worth to girls in everyday situations with 200 Ways to Raise a Girl's Self-Esteem.

Learn to be a good example for girls. Teach, advise, and create rituals that help girls navigate their transition into womanhood. 200 Ways to Raise a Girl's Self-Esteem is a practical guide for raising healthy girls and provides exercises for parents and teachers.

You will learn:

  • To boost your girl’s self-esteem
  • How to be an example for your child
  • To lead your daughter into womanhood

Women's Intuition

By

Women's Intuition is real, says Paula Reeves. Encoded in a woman's DNA, this subtle yet potent source of knowledge has been doubted and dismissed as an old wives' tale. Because social conditioning and maledominated culture have caused women to feel disconnected from their own bodies, Dr. Reeves believes that most women are unaware of what their intuition is trying to tell them.

In Women's Intuition, Dr. Reeves guides readers to remove the blocks preventing this channel of knowledge from informing and enriching their daily lives. By evoking bodybased intuition, readers can reestablish their bodymind bond and access their intuitive power for healing and insight.

Create a Natural Learning Environment for Your Child

From the team that forever changed our view of how children learn, in their book How Your Child is Smart, comes a fundamental and intuitive prescription for natural learning right at home.

Natural learning starts at home. Anyone who spends time with young children recognizes their natural intelligence and resilient passion to learn.

Whether a parent or educator, Learning Unlimited helps transform the homework hassle from a nightly struggle to an engaged learning initiative that uncovers the unique gifts of your child’s mind.

Learning from your child’s natural motivation. Filled with practical advice and compassionate support, this book is designed to honor your child’s innate intelligence with family engaged learning strategies. In Learning Unlimited, veteran teachers unveil how learning from homework can also function as a joint inquiry into your child’s special gifts. Designed for optimal parental involvement in education, this guide helps parents give children a competitive advantage by cultivating a life-long love of learning.

If you’re ready to take a step towards family engaged learning and have read The Gift of FailureThe Well-Trained Mind, or The Self-Driven Child, then you’ll love Learning Unlimited.
