Abstract
When Alex was born prematurely in 1998, he weighed only 21 ounces. He spent only four days of the first tentative year of his life at home. The rest was spent in the hospital in one critical medical situation after another, with Stimpson and his wife battling hospital staff, fighting to keep the treatments and procedures to a minimum. Stimpson chronicles the day-to-day struggle to keep Alex alive and, later, to make something of a normal life for him as Stimpson and his wife slowly come to terms with their child's physical and mental limitations. Alex's homecoming only shifted the venue for constant care, worries, and crises. Tracing Alex's development from premature birth to kindergarten, Stimpson offers a compelling look at the roller coaster of emotions faced by parents with a severely ill child who must contend with sometimes supportive and sometimes callous medical and social workers as they advocate for the maximum care and opportunity for their child.

Abstract
The first parenting book to bring the science and psychology of children's behavior together to build brain/body awareness for self-regulation and success Self-Reg is a ground-breaking book that presents an entirely new understanding of your child's emotions and behavior that serves as a practical guide for parents to help their kids engage calmly and successfully in learning and life. Rooted in decades of clinical practice and research by leading child psychologist Dr. Stuart Shanker, Self-Reg realigns the power of the parent-child relationship for positive change. Self-regulation is the nervous system's way of responding to stress. We are seeing a generation of children and teens with excessively high levels of stress and, as a result, an explosion of emotional, social, learning, behavior, and physical health problems. But few parents recognize the "hidden stressors" that their children are struggling with: physiological as well as social and emotional. An entrenched view of child rearing is seeing our children as lacking self-control or will-power, but the real basis for these problems lies in excessive stress. Self-regulation can dramatically improve a child's mood, attention, and concentration. It can help children to feel empathy and to develop the sorts of virtues that every parent knows are vital for their child's long-term well-being. Self-regulation brings about profound and lasting transformation that continues to mature throughout life. Shanker translates decades of his findings from working with children into practical, prescriptive advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop their self-regulation skills and teach their children how to do the same for optimal learning, social, and emotional growth as well as for overall well-being.

Abstract
Klane tells the story of Evan through recollections begun at about the time of Evan's tenth birthday—a miracle birthday if ever there was one. She records their life in and out of hospitals, doctor's offices, life-threatening emergencies, treatments, home healthcare, school, all from the moment of Evan's birth. We learn what it is like to be the parent of an exceptional child, as much as we learn what life is like for the child. To help illustrate the life of this family, their experiences, and emotions, Klane has included poems and drawings she created over the years, which have been sprinkled throughout the book, as well as family photographs. All of these are a touching reminder that this family is real and that the issues they face every day are huge. Too, this is as much a how-to book as it is the story of one family. There are chapters included on being an effective team player, taking care of yourself as a parent, learning to trust your own instincts, and how to stand up for yourself and your child when you in disagreement with the professionals. A glossary is included, as well as a medical timeline, which is a bit of a capsulation of the events Evan experienced during each year of his life to date.

Alex Alligator is proud--as any alligator would be--of his fearsome jaws and big teeth. He doesn't understand why the other creatures along the riverbank don't admire them, too!

Abstract
Written by the leader of a support group for parents of children with severe food allergies, this book is a straightforward guide written especially for anyone charged with the care of a young person who could suffer a traumatic or potentially fatal reaction from common foods such as milk, wheat, eggs, or peanuts. It covers such diverse topics as learning how to grocery shop for foods that are safe for one's child, educating others about the allergies of one's child, and teaching one's child to be responsible and above all safe (for example, teaching the child to immediately spit out any food that gives a bad feeling, or how to use injected medication to counter the potentially life-threatening allergy symptoms).

Abstract
This program offers an intimate view of patients, families and professional caregivers when a cure for cancer is beyond reach. The program explores a variety of journeys at the end of life. Whether families draw on extensive or minimal support from siblings, stepparents and grandparents, they face choices that can lead to confusion and disagreement. Many other factors can increase the crushing burden at the end of a child's life, including a breakdown of communication within the medical team or between physicians, patients and parents; cultural barriers; and family stresses unrelated to cancer. Making decisions and living with them can be agonizing for everyone involved.
