Known for her saying, 'Thank God for God, ' Heidi serves Him in what she describes as her most profound and rewarding calling yet: giving and devoting her time and energy to being a foster parent. Having cared for hundreds of children (including over 80 babies!) over the past 10 years, Heidi's family has helped many of them to experience God's love. Being given nicknames like "Wonder Woman" and "the Baby Whisperer," Heidi delights in being part of the foster care community and sharing her experiences, triumphs and defeats with others, hoping to bring them encouragement and inspiration.

A parenting guide to adolescence - a sensible and considerate resource for navigating your teen to adulthood, transforming a traditional time of strife into an opportunity for positive growth for both you and your child. For parents, nurturing their teens to become healthy, well-adjusted adults seems more challenging now than ever before. There are many pressures for kids to grow up faster than they should. Here, renowned adolescent medicine specialist Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D., and award-winning journalist Susan FitzGerald offer parents a practical, thoughtful strategy for guiding children through all the turning points on the way to adulthood - the "whens" and "hows" of adolescence. Letting Go with Live and Confidence helps parents achieve five goals: Manage Their Own Emotions. Many parents are conflicted about their teens growing up. The desire to keep things the way they've always been may get in the way of wise parental decisions. This book addresses the emotional turmoil that surrounds letting go, and urges parents to care for themselves, so they can better care for their children. Reduce Conflict Around the Whens. It's the everyday "When can I?" questions that trigger many struggles. Parents will learn to turn potential sources of conflict into opportunities for growth as they consider 18 scenarios, including When is my child ready to stay home alone? Get a cell phone? Manage money? Date? Drive? Minimize Anxiety Over the Hows. Certain subjects are tough to talk about and the stakes in these conversations are high. How in the world do you talk about sex? Drugs? Peer pressure? Parents will learn how to approach critical topics with honesty and clarity, increasing the chances that they'll actually be heard. Gain Confidence To Make the Right Decisions. Parents reading this book will be better prepared to make decisions because they'll have a strategy to apply to each situation and gain new insight into their child's developmental needs. Understand That Nurturing Independence Is An Act of Love. The ultimate goal of parenting is to produce a well-adjusted adult. When teens understand that their parents support their independence, they're less likely to rebel. As importantly, when independence is not a battle, families can move toward lifelong interdependence. Letting Go with Live and Confidence is filled with the latest findings on successful parenting and is infused with Dr. Ginsburg's expert advice on how to build resilience in teens. This comprehensive volume also contains stories from real parents from diverse backgrounds who have faced the challenges of raising teens. Empowering and groundbreaking, this book is a one-stop resource to parenting teens in the twenty-first century.

The majority of our public school graduates are ill-prepared for both college and the working world. How does this betrayal of public trust happen? What can be done about it? Why is it that some public schools are effective and others are not? In Educating, Not Babysitting! veteran teachers Jon Ryker and Jo Rogers delve into the dilemma and recommend a set of principles for improving schools without spending additional money. Educating, Not Babysitting! explains how schools lose their way under competing priorities, a lack of leadership, and a lack of oversight. It also recommends how taxpayers, parents, students, teachers, and administrators can drive the process of refocusing a district on its sole critical mission—maximizing student learning. It explains that: Taxpayers must not write blank checks Students must seek to learn Teachers must believe in their students Parents must join in Administrators must be everyone’s role model Based on personal experience and presented in an informal, friendly format, Educating, Not Babysitting! demonstrates that education is everyone’s concern. Together, these groups can rescue school districts from the malaise of “at-riskness” and get back to the business at hand—maximizing learning.

In the mid-seventies, both gender studies and humor studies emerged as new disciplines, with scholars from various fields undertaking research in these areas. The first publications that emerged in the field of gender studies came out of disciplines such as philosophy, history, and literature, while early works in the area of humor studies initially concentrated on language, linguistics, and psychology. Since then, both fields have flourished, but largely independently. This book draws together and focuses the work of scholars from diverse disciplines on intersections of gender and humor, giving voice to approaches in disciplines such as film, television, literature, linguistics, translation studies, and popular culture.
