Parenting Without Tears: Living With Teenagers
UK Link
It is one of the greatest shocks any parent faces. Your gorgeous, smart, polite child is suddenly transformed into a monosyllabic, moody teen who can hardly bear to be in the same room as their parents. 

Teenagers can be trying - and parents end up feeling they can't cope. 

But it needn't be impossible. Living with teenagers can be one of the most rewarding times of your life. You just need to approach it in the right way. 

In this helpful, concise, practical guide, parenting expert Anne Coates guides you through how to cope with the teenage years; shows how to steer your child through to adulthood; and offers advice on how to stop them going off the rails.

Empowered Preemie Moms: From NICU, to Newborn, and Beyond
UK Link
The experiences of preemie moms often detract sharply from the experiences of mothers who carry their babies to term. In fact, the surreal, clinical, and often traumatic things that preemie moms endure make their labor, delivery, and parenting scenarios seem almost otherworldly in comparison to those of “termie” mommas. The current work describes how one preemie mom, Shaana Berman, dealt with her own premature introduction to parenthood after developing HELLP syndrome. Her son, Jax, was delivered at 34 weeks, 5 days gestation, weighing just 3 pounds, 14 ounces. As a special education specialist, Dr. Berman was shocked and dismayed when her life began to parallel her career. The NICU stay was challenging, but arriving at home was also frightening. Among other things, Jax battled severe reflux, braphycephaly, and was termed failure to thrive. 

This book is divided into two sections. The first section relates the stories of ten preemie moms who had their babies during different stages of gestation (from 25-34.5 weeks). This organization is intentional, as the first thing a preemie mom often wants to share is their child’s gestational age and weight at birth. Of the 50 responses, specific stories were selectively included to portray a range of preemie ages, weights, birth scenarios, and outcomes. 

The second section of Empowered Preemie Moms outlines survival tips based on these commonalities. The work as a whole is intended to help preemie moms navigate their preemie rollercoaster rides and achieve a sense of power and control over their situations, rather than succumbing to feelings of isolation and anxiety.

Pedestrian Parenting
UK Link
If Jenny Lawson, David Sedaris, and Anne Lammot had a baby and that baby could write... That'd be one scary smart baby! The fine motors skills alone would be supernatural.

Every child is wonderful because each human is exceptional. That is the main thrust of this very hilarious, sometimes moving, book told through the perspective of a daddy trying and often failing to go against the grain. If every person is wonderful and brilliant and unique, after all, then the ways that society has taught us to raise them – through buying, through plugging in, through fear, through violence, through perfectly controlled environments – are woefully inadequate.
