This book will fill a gap in the market, helping parents enjoy their toddlers, understand the limitations of current popular toddler parenting methods such as sticker charts and time out, and to have the confidence to ignore the current mainstream 'experts' and parent their own child with trust and empathy. Chapters include: Why toddlers are not mini-adults; the importance of night-time parenting; coping with a picky eater; communication - toddler style; avoiding difficult situations; the importance of unconditional love and why you don't need to be permissive to parent respectfully.

The Babymoon Experience

Caroline Deacon
Authors:
Caroline Deacon

Becoming a mother is probably the most life-changing experience any woman goes through and the first weeks after giving birth is a period of huge adjustment for both mother and baby. Many cultures recognise this with a period of 'lying in' but in the West we have lost this, pressuring women to get 'back to normal; as soon as possible after birth. We need to rediscover the art of mothering the new mother. We expect new mothers to carry on as before, as quickly as possible, and in minimising the time they need to recover from the birth and get to know their babies, we trivialise the event. Not surprising then that ten percent of women in the UK have severe postnatal depression and many more feel they 'can't cope'. NCT counsellor, psychologist and bestselling author Caroline Deacon explores how we can prepare for, and enjoy, an ideal babymoon and make the most of this most precious and vital time. The book offers a reassuring, affirming, entertaining and informative guide to babymooning and takes the reader through pregnancy, birth and those key first weeks of a newborn's life.

The Compassionate Mind Approach To Postnatal Depression

Michelle Cree
Authors:
Michelle Cree

It is well-known that having a baby can be a time of joy but also one of anxiety and even depression for new mothers. Indeed it is very common for new mothers to experience a short period of distress following childbirth, often referred to as 'baby blues'. Usually this passes quite quickly, however for more than 1 in 10 women, this distressing experience can be more prolonged. This practical self-help book based on Compassion Focused Therapy will help women to recognise some of the symptoms and, where appropriate, to normalise them, thereby alleviating their distress. It will also guide mothers-to-be and new mothers through the maze of confusing feelings that can arise. Not only will this book cover the basic experiences and symptoms associated with anxiety and depression and childbirth, an evolutionary model of why this occurs, and an outline of the basic Compassionate Mind model, it will guide the reader through a series of exercises that they can use for themselves to develop their compassionate mind and work on their difficulties.

Grace Under Pressure

Sophie Walker
Authors:
Sophie Walker

When Sophie Walker's daughter Grace was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, her world unravelled. Her high-powered job was in disarray, she couldn't sleep, often woke in tears and felt hopeless and useless in her role as a mother. One day she realised she hadn't done any exercise for months - neglecting her physical health as well as her mental wellbeing. Previously a keen runner, she set herself the challenge of running the London Marathon to raise awareness of Asperger Syndrome and make herself physically strong enough to support her daughter. Invigorated by the physical challenge she had set herself, Sophie began a blog - 'Grace Under Pressure' - writing about both day-to-day life raising Grace alongside training for the marathon. The combination caught the imagination of readers and the blog took off, garnering praise from a wide range of sources. Now transformed into a book, Grace Under Pressure is a moving story that charts the highs and lows of raising a child with Asperger Syndrome and the physical challenge of training for a long-distance running event.

She uses a combination of yoga, hypnotherapy, NLP, acupressure and common-sense to identify ways in which you can really change your eating habits. Whether it is remembering key slogans (a glass of wine is the same as a glass of pasta), trying new distraction techniques (rubbing your finger between your nose and your top lip when cravings hit) or taking the time to really chew and taste each mouthful you eat, you will find strategies and coping methods that really work for you. This title has previously been published as The Little Book of Diet Help.
