It takes more than love to be an authentically powerful parent. This book begins with the paradox that parents are less powerful than they want to be and more powerful than they realize. Knowing how you are totally powerless actually opens the pathway to discovering where your greatest influence lies. Once you understand and accept the Cosmic Design of your children's hard wiring you are free to give up the struggle of trying to change them. This book will help you unclench your resistance in needing others to behave in certain ways in order to feel fulfilled or happy.

You will discover your ability to affect abundant, authentic relationships as a new code of communication is clarified for you. What Does this New Code of Communication Look Like? * Shifting Belief Systems that Keep You Stuck and Worried * Changing Your Inner Dialogue for Amazing Positive Results * Trading Ego Thinking, Nagging and Lecturing into Wise Council and Authentic Appreciation * Turning Self-Defeating Patterns into Healthy, Positive Discipline * Integrating Feelings, Energy and Spirit into Daily Challenges You cannot control the school system, the government, your extended family or ultimately, your child's important life choices. You can learn when and how to step in without creating power struggles or emotional upheavals. Your starting point is in the moment that you decide to nurture an environment of unconditional love, trust, compassion and open communication. No one does it perfectly but if we are to get positive results, we must parent with deliberate intention. All your power is in the NOW.

The hunger for authenticity guides us throughout our lives. People strive for joined-up living, where on the one hand what they say and do reflects what they think and feel, and on the other what they think and feel reflects who they are. Stephen Joseph has pioneered developments in research into authenticity, drawing on the solid science of positive psychology to develop what has become one of the gold-standard tests for assessing authenticity. His and others' findings reveal that when people are in relationships in which they feel accepted, understood and valued, they drop their defences. They naturally begin to examine themselves psychologically, accommodate new information and live more authentically. What's more, the latest studies reveal that it is authenticity that leads to true happiness. In Authentic, Stephen Joseph presents his fresh and inspiring perspective on the psychology of authenticity alongside practical advice and exercises for the reader. Drawing on the wisdom of existential philosophers, the insights and research of psychologists, and case studies from his own and others' clinical experiences, he shows how authenticity is the foundation of human flourishing - as well as how the ideas relate to debates about the importance of happiness.
Authentic parenting is when you do all you can to help your children become who
they are, rather than trying to make them be like you, or to live up to some other
ideal. To do that you have to work hard to meet your children's needs for agency

The controversies in adoption have extended across a spectrum of policy and practice issues, and although the issues have become clear, resolution has not been achieved nor has consensus developed regarding a framework on which to improve the quality of adoption policy and practice. This book is the third in a series to use an ethics-based framework for analyzing and resolving these complex challenges in adoption while avoiding the divisiveness that has heretofore impeded their resolution. This book, presented in four parts, focuses on the many ways that adoption may affect each member of the adoption triad. Part 1 presents information on the historical context of adoption in the United States, from colonial times through the current day. Part 2 examines the impact of adoption on the adopted person and considers children's and adolescents' adjustment and well-being, adolescents' identity formation, adult adoptees' access to information, and adoptees' searches and reunions with biological parents. Part 3 considers the impact of adoption on birth parents, including the individual's sense of personal integrity and well-being related to open adoption practices and involuntary termination of parental rights. Part 4 examines the impact of adoption on prospective adoptive parents, adoptive parents, and adoptive families, focusing on the psychological and social processes involved in becoming adoptive parents, the processes involved in being approved to parent, and issues related to adoptive parents' right to adopt and decisions to adopt particular children.

This text helps teach pre-service teachers the art of inquiry--instilling in students a sense of wonder, curiosity, asking questions, looking for answers, and making sense of the world in different ways. The authors see teaching as an art that supports the learner in multiple ways, using different tools that are responsive to their individual orientation or to their multiple intelligences. Teaching as Inquiry is based on best practice and centers around the philosophies of Reggio Emilia, as well as Dewey, Vygotsky, Piaget, Gardner and others. The book has a unique structure that focuses on helping future teachers understand the theory and apply it practically. Each chapter begins with a story from the classroom, followed by a list of questions to be considered throughout the chapter. "Think About It" boxes ask students to pause and reflect, and each chapter ends with suggestions for "Getting Started" as well as Web resources and suggested readings.
