Product Overview

"Written for both lay and professional people who raise and teach children, this guide offers practical advice for instilling critical thinking skills in children and teens. Browne-Miller, a noted author and expert on addiction, behavior, and violence, offers tips on how to reach, help, and empower children in the face of such obstacles as stress, hypochondria, abuse, and even family violence. She also addresses the folklore and scientific debates about intelligence and emphasizes the need to develop morals in order to maximize human potential." Reference & Research Book News

"Divorcing with Children is an informative and engaging book that will be of value to many audiences---divorcing parents and their families, therapists, lawyers and law students, and judges and experts who participate in divorce proceedings. The book provides supportive solutions (including occasional selections of poetry or literature) to the invisible wounds of divorce. I consider it an essential tool to enrich my classroom teaching." Professor Jane Hoffman Locke Loyola University, Chicago, School of Law

This book offers a groundbreaking collection of writings on the growing phenomenon of single-parent families in the United States, and how it impacts society as a whole.

Happiness, as the saying goes, is a choice. Moreover, as the new science of positive psychology demonstrates, happiness is a choice that can be achieved through the application of concrete practices that anyone can learn how to apply. Single motherhood is a fact of life for millions of women across the United States, Canada, and other nations. It can also be a source of empowerment---for mothers and for their children.

There are 90 million mothers in the United States and Canada alone, and given the current divorce rate, a great number of women will find themselves as single mothers at some point in their lives. This book is for them. Single Mother in Charge: How to Successfully Pursue Happiness employs the latest research on the science of happiness to show single moms how to be stronger, happier, and more balanced. Through it, they will learn to use their own power to improve the quality of their lives and those of their children.

This hands-on guide starts with three critical lessons for personal transformation: the right belief, the right attitude, and taking action. Readers are then taught how to transform feelings of fear, anxiety, guilt, and low self-esteem into a positive, confident attitude. Once these barriers to happiness have come down, the single mother can use the 22 "happiness strategies" outlined in the book to create a happier and healthier life for herself and her family.
