I remember one of the first times our younger daughter Amber vented her anger at me for something I did. In reality, it was something I didn't do that made her mad. She had asked me to help her with a paper she was writing for a middle school class. The paper required a lot of research, and Amber didn't know how to go about doing the research."There's nothing to it," I assured her flippantly. Then instead of showing her what she needed to do, I simply told her to get started, explaining that she would figure out how to do the research as she went along.She let out an exasperated sigh. "But Dad, I don't know how to--""Amber, just get started," I insisted with authority, "and you'll figure it out." Then I left the room.(from the introduction)When the author understood his mistake, he was able to go and talk with his daughter. As she vented, he began to understand what a capacity parents have to make their kids angry, and how he could change his approach to communicating with his children to improve their relationship. In the years since Roger Cross has been studying the things parents do that make kids angry, such as:playing favoriteshaving loose or confusing boundariesexpecting kids to fill adult roles and moreDrawing on his ministry of Youth for Christ along with a survey of one hundred students of varied ages and backgrounds, Roger Cross has created a practical, helpful book for parents who want to understand why their kids are so angry and what they need to do to change.

Nothing frightens a parent more than feeling totally helpless when their child reports, “I’m scared. There’s a ghost in my room. I won’t sleep there.” Onerous questions come to mind, “Is my kid nuts? Am I nuts for believing them? How can I help with something invisible? How am I supposed to fight a phantom?” For the first time, Kids Who See Ghosts provides the answers to these questions, and offers adults guidance in tackling the subject with children. The highly intuitive child is empathic, psychic, or sensitive and can see ghosts. Parental responses to such events range from abject fear, to supporting their child, being unable to act, to visiting doctors and therapists. This guide bridges the gap from mainstream to the metaphysical, providing answers and guidance. It doesn’t matter whether parents believe in ghosts to know how to help children through frightening experiences. Goode challenges readers to open their minds for the journey through ghost tales and to learn empowerment strategies for their kids. Kids Who See Ghosts includes interviews with experts from diverse backgrounds, from Dr. Bruce Lipton to Lynn Andrews, from science to shamanism, to give a well rounded perspective on our perception of the afterlife, intuition, psychic abilities, and belief.

Rebellious, entitled, disrespectful, many kids pummel their parents with demands, and boss them around with impunity. Experts might label them "difficult" and advise how to "fix" them. But parenting struggles rarely originate from just one side. Instead, they erupt at the volatile intersection of a child's personality with a parent's own insecurities and behaviors. Fixing the child requires fixing yourself. In When Kids Call the Shots, therapist and parenting expert Sean Grover untangles the forces driving family dysfunction, and helps parents assume leadership roles. With a liberating message and perceptive advice, the book explores: Three common bullying styles (defiant, manipulative, anxious) used by kids Parenting styles (guilt-prone, anxiety-fueled, fix-everything) that contribute to power imbalances Critical testing periods in a child's development Coping mechanisms that backfire Personalized plans for calmly exerting authority in any scenario And more Caving in to tantrums and threats breeds more of the same. Learn to stop the cycle of abusive behavior and make parenting a pleasure again.

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.
