WANT A PEACEFUL HOME? This practical, effective guide for parents with kids of all ages introduces proven principles for overcoming the stress and anxiety of parenting, forged in the personal trenches of countless Screamfree families. If you’re like most parents, what you want right now is pretty simple: an effective plan for getting your kids to behave and be happy. You’re probably looking for something else as well – something a little deeper. Like many other parents all over the world, you want to know you’re doing a good job. You want to feel like you can handle anything. You want to feel confident, competent, and hopeful for the future, for both your kids and yourself. (Oh, and along the way, you’d like a little peace, quiet, and respect as well.) All of the above are possible, even probable, if you can learn to become “Screamfree.” You can have the structured, rewarding home life you’ve always craved, with respectful kids who are responsible for their own actions. All you have to do is learn to pause, so you can respond more and react less. It really is that simple. Once you learn to control your own emotions and behavior, your children will soon learn how to control theirs. Now is your chance to join thousands of other parents in a movement of calmer parenting. The new, revised edition includes updated practical applications of the foundational Screamfree principles, a new chapter on parenting in the digital age, and a comprehensive Q&A section dealing with everything from behavioral problems to allowances and chores. A peaceful home is closer than you think.

In his last book, Mr. Grey sheds considerable light on a community that had a particular impact on African-Americans in the 20th century. No doubt, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali and Elijah Muhammad, who were members of that community, contributed profoundly to the African-American struggle for human rights. With the second book, the author treads down the same path with reports about the transformed community of Imam W. Deen Mohammed that the media has basically overlooked. These articles reflect part of the community's business, social, religious and of course, mental growth from the days of the Nation of Islam.
Principle-Centered Parenting is not about controlling, manipulating or changing childrens external behavior. It is about starting healthy spiritually based thinking that changes behavior from the inside out. Focusing on controlling or changing external behaviors is like trying to change a picture projected on a screen without changing the film in the camera. As children learn to love good, their behavior reflects their thinking and bad behavior dissolves like darkness when we turn on a light. We cannot teach a drowning person how to swim. Similarly, we cannot teach healthy behavior to an out of control child. It is necessary to stop destructive or harmful behavior with temporary measures, but long-term learning takes time, repetition, creative insight and willingness to listen to our inner spiritual parenting guide. Teaching behavior principles is similar to teaching math or reading. It takes loving patience and faith in a childs ability to learn. When children understand correct principles, their mistakes disappear. Parables like the Wheat and Tares explain the spiritual law of growth and development. The scriptures contain powerful stories that make spiritual laws practical and effective in parenting and daily family life. Principle-Centered Parenting is a guide for parents to tap into their own and their childrens infinite spiritual resources.

The Revolutionary Program That Gets Your Kids To Listen Without Nagging, Reminding, or Yelling Why does it feel sometimes as if our children have special powers that enable them to tune us out completely? You ask your child to do her homework, get ready for school or bedtime. You think she heard you but . . . no response. You’ve tried everything—time-outs, nagging, counting to three—and nothing seems to work. In this invaluable book, Amy McCready, founder of the popular online parenting course Positive Parenting Solutions, presents a nag-and-scream-free program for compassionately yet effectively, correcting your children’s bad behavior. McCready draws on Adlerian psychology and Positive Discipline, which focuses on the central idea that every human being has a basic need to feel connected and empowered—children being no exception to the rule. According to McCready, when this need isn’t met in positive ways, kids resort to negative methods. In this book she provides parents with a virtual toolbox of strategies they can use to give their children the attention and power they crave—and do away with the misbehaving that adults dread.
