Abstract
Written at a third-grade reading level for boys ages 9-16 with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, fragile X, or other special needs.
The book's succint text, realistic illustrations, and learning activities enable boys to read the book themselves or follow along with the aid of an adult. Its reassuring, matter-of-fact tone shows boys what changes--inside and out--to expect during puberty, and how to manage them:
Growth spurts and bigger muscles
Voice cracking and deepening
Blemishes and oily skin
Body and facial hair
Moodiness
Crushes, flirting, and sexual feelings
Erections, wet dreams, and masturbation

Abstract
In this book, the author, a Harvard psychologist, argues that parents, not peers or television, are the primary shapers of their children’s moral lives. He contends that parents' intense focus on children's happiness; obsession with achievement; and desire to be closer to their children; have eroded their influence as moral mentors and have imperiled their children's moral growth. The author highlights inspiring parents, teachers and coaches, and presents concrete strategies for moral, happy children.

Abstract
Windows to the Womb guides the reader through the first nine months of life from conception to birth. Using recent breakthroughs in embryology, interuterine photography, ultrasound, and other sensitive instruments of measurement, the author describes the amazing construction of our physical bodies, the "ultimate architecture," and draws parallels with the expansion of our minds as our brains and senses develop and grow. Dr. Chamberlain details new discoveries in embryonic and fetal research that support his own findings on the impact of the mother's emotional and physical state during pregnancy; the importance of bonding at the earliest stages, long before birth; and the steps that expectant parents can take to ensure the most nurturing start in life for their children.

Abstract
A generation ago, fewer than 5 percent of girls started puberty before the age of 8; today, that percentage has more than doubled. Early puberty is not just a matter of physical transformation?it?s also deeply psychological, with a myriad of effects that can put a girl at higher risk for behavioral problems and long-term health challenges.
In this reassuring and empowering guide, Louise Greenspan, MD, and Julianna Deardorff, PhD?two leading experts on the root causes and potential consequences of early puberty in girls?deliver vital advice on how to prevent and manage early puberty. They explain surprising triggers?from excess body fat to hormone-mimicking chemicals to emotional stressors in a girl?s home and family life?and offer highly practical strategies, including how to limit exposure to certain ingredients in personal care and household products, which foods to eat and which to avoid, ways to improve a child?s sleep routine to promote healthy biology, and more.
The New Puberty is an engaging, urgently needed road map to helping young girls move forward with confidence, ensuring their future well-being.

Abstract
A book that aims at proving that training preschoolers with flash cards and attempting to hurry intellectual development doesn't pay off. In fact, the authors claim, kids who are pressured early on to join the academic rat race don't fair any better than children who are allowed to take their time. Alarmed by the current trend toward creating baby Einsteins, the book urges parents to step back and practice the "Three R's: Reflect, Resist, and Recenter." Instead of pushing preschoolers into academically oriented programs that focus on early achievement, the authors suggest that children learn best through simple playtime, which enhances problem solving skills, attention span, social development and creativity. The authors walk parents through much of the recent research on the way children learn, debunking such myths as the Mozart effect, and pointing out that much learning unravels naturally, programmed through centuries of evolution.

This family-friendly guide offers concise information on how occupational therapy works and shows you how to apply it in a way that benefits your child. The games are even divided into chapters based on different types of occupational therapy skills―sensory processing, motor, social-emotional, and cognitive and visual processing―so you can focus on the ones that are most important for your child.
-
Customizable for your kid―Every chapter starts with the simplest activities and increases in complexity, with tips on how to make each activity easier or harder.
-
No experience necessary―From Balloon Volleyball to Find the Treasure, most exercises can be done with things you probably already have in your home. No prior knowledge or special tools required.
-
All kids, all ages―These occupational therapy activities are built for kids 1 to 6 years old with various developmental challenges, but they can help all kids improve their physical, social-emotional, and cognitive abilities.
