product image
$9.00

Most children learn to stop throwing temper tantrums, talking back, and refusing to go to bed or take a bath at an early age. But some children have trouble with impulsivity and self-control. Left unaddressed, these issues can lead to some very serious problems in adolescence and adulthood. Anger control problems are the number one reason that children are referred for therapy, affecting children as young as three years old. Since anger problems in children may indicate other significant concerns, it pays to address anger in kids as soon as possible. If a child in your life has an anger problem, you need the friendly, effective activities in this book.

I'm Not Bad, I'm Just Mad contains forty activities for issues such as recognizing anger triggers, better problem solving, and communication tips for defusing conflict before it gets out of hand. The workbook explores common lifestyle issues such as lack of sleep that can make anger problems worse. These fun activities will help kids talk about their feelings and learn to control them.

Used LAST CHILD IN THE WOODS (USED)

$8.00
"The children and nature movement is fueled by this fundamental idea: the child in nature is an endangered species, and the health of children and the health of the Earth are inseparable." --Richard Louv, from the new edition

In his landmark work Last Child in the Woods, Richard Louv brought together cutting-edge studies that pointed to direct exposure to nature as essential for a child's healthy physical and emotional development. Now this new edition updates the growing body of evidence linking the lack of nature in children's lives and the rise in obesity, attention disorders, and depression. Louv's message has galvanized an international back-to-nature campaign to "Leave No Child Inside." His book will change the way you think about our future and the future of our children.

"[The] national movement to 'leave no child inside' . . . has been the focus of Capitol Hill hearings, state legislative action, grass-roots projects, a U.S. Forest Service initiative to get more children into the woods and a national effort to promote a 'green hour' in each day. . . . The increased activism has been partly inspired by a best-selling book, Last Child in the Woods, and its author, Richard Louv." --The Washington Post

"Last Child in the Woods, which describes a generation so plugged into electronic diversions that it has lost its connection to the natural world, is helping drive a movement quickly flourishing across the nation." --The Nation's Health

"This book is an absolute must-read for parents." --The Boston Globe

Used Running With the Horses : A Parenting Guide for Raising Children to Be Servant-leaders for Christ (USED)

product image
$7.00

We all have great intentions when it comes to raising our children. We want them to succeed, and above all to surrender their lives to the lordship of Christ. As a father of four boys and a twenty-five-year veteran of school administration, I understand these goals. I also understand the busyness of daily life-how days merge into weeks as hurried lifestyles spin out of control, leaving us wondering how our toddlers became teenagers. This book introduces you to a simple, biblically based plan for raising servant-leaders for Christ. Whether your child is eighteen months or eighteen years old, this book will guide you through the process of preparation for the race that awaits him in this world.

We will walk through specific and practical things you can do to build a family plan. Being deliberate and focusing on creating depth in your child's faith is the first step to preparing him or her to run with the horses-"If you have run with footmen and they have tired you out, then how can you compete with horses? If you fall down in a land of peace, how will you do in the thicket of the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5).
