Raising and Praising Boys

Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer (Author)

One of the biggest lessons we have learnt in the last few decades is that it is valuable, important and effective to praise children. Children respond much better to encouragement than they do to punishment, which is why praising them is considered fundamental in helping them develop self-esteem and strong self-belief. However, the wrong kind of praise can do more harm than good, creating children who lose all sense of rational judgement and are too readily wrong-footed when they meet difficulty.

In this practical, common-sense guide, Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer shows parents why understanding and acknowledging boys' sensibilities is the key to knowing how to award their sons with the right sort of praise. Using insightful, accessible tips, she reveals:

- why boys need regular but small doses of positive feedback to prevent them from becoming distracted or losing focus in their work
- what makes the father/son relationship instrumental in ensuring boys receive the right praise
- why female approval may have less value in the eyes of young boys than male approval

-Contraceptive advances
-Lifestyle and factors that affect early pregnancy
-Conception itself - the myths and the facts

Consciously Female

Paula Spencer (Author) , Tracy Gaudet (Author) , Andrew Weil (Introducer)

It often feels chaotic rather than dynamic being a woman. Every day is different. Am I a size 10 today, or a size 14? Do I feel energised or do I feel like crawling under the duvet and watching Eastenders? Even our interest in sex bobs about, seemingly from minute to minute. And we mentally cross off the days when our hormones are in flux - chalking our bad moods up to PMS and waiting impatiently for our bodies to return to 'normal'. But if we are not 'ourselves' for so much of our lives, then who are we? In Consciously Female, Tracey Gaudet gives women the tools and the techniques to consciously reframe what it means to live inside a woman's body. So instead of crossing off the days we feel bad, we will learn to understand them as part of an important cycle which adds emotion and physical feeling to our lives - we will become 'consciously female'. Integrating conventional and alternative medicine, the book provides us with a complete wellness programme, including advice on nutrition, exercise, rituals and mind-body techniques. It's wonderfully positive, practical and inspirational - it's for every woman.

You're So Mummy

Alex Manson-Smith (Author) , Sarah Thompson (Author)

You're So Mummy is an honest take on 21st-century motherhood that sticks two finger-puppets up at parenting manuals.

Modern mums are swamped with parenting books and advice, but none seem to address the real questions confronting today's mother.

Questions such as:
- Who does the yoga in baby yoga?
- Is it okay to drink wine before wine o'clock?
- What do all the laundry symbols mean?
- If you invite another mum round for coffee, should you get dressed first?

No, it's not just you. Here to save your sanity, Sarah and Alex are two friends who've been around the park a few too many times.

Hilarious and refreshingly honest, this book won't tell you how to get your child to sleep, but will help you to find your way through the early years of motherhood with your sense of humour still intact.

For all once-normal women who now find themselves in charge of small people, You're So Mummy will make you howl in grateful recognition.

The Handbag and Wellies Yoga Club

Lucy Edge (Author)

What happens when an urban girl swaps her kitten heels in the city for karma in the country?

It is a big year for Lucy - she has met the love of her life and they're planning to trade the city rat race for a Norfolk farmhouse, get married, and try for a baby.

But country life isn't quite what Lucy imagined. Sure, there's time to stop and chat, but where does she find the people to stop and chat to?

She has almost had it up to here when, one day, she stumbles across a local yoga club. There - in a small room above Knit and Knatter - she finds the laughter, friendship and wisdom to steer her through whatever dramas life throws at her.

A funny and heart-warming true story about one woman's search for love and friendship in the lotus position.

Uncertainty

Jonathan Fields (Author)

Jonathan Fields knows the risks-and potential power-of uncertainty. He gave up a six-figure income as a lawyer to make $12 an hour as a personal trainer. Then, married with a 3-month old baby, he signed a lease to launch a yoga center in the heart of New York City. . . the day before 9/11. But he survived, and along the way he developed a fresh approach to transforming uncertainty, risk of loss, and exposure to judgment into catalysts for innovation, creation, and achievement.

In business, art, and life, creating on a world-class level demands bold action and leaps of faith in the face of great uncertainty. But that uncertainty can lead to fear, anxiety, paralysis, and destruction. It can gut creativity and stifle innovation. It can keep you from taking the risks necessary to do great work and craft a deeply-rewarding life. And it can bring companies that rely on innovation grinding to a halt.

That is, unless you know how to use it to your advantage.

Fields draws on leading-edge technology, cognitive science, and ancient awareness-focusing techniques in a fresh, practical, nondogmatic way. His approach enables creativity and productivity on an entirely different level and can turn the once-tortuous journey into a more enjoyable quest.
