Used CLASSICAL CONVERSATIONS TEN WAYS TO DESTROY THE IMAGINATION OF YOUR CHILD (USED)

$9.00

“Esolen signals with this book his presence in the top rank of authors of cultural criticism.” —American Spectator

Play dates, soccer practice, day care, political correctness, drudgery without facts, television, video games, constant supervision, endless distractions: these and other insidious trends in child rearing and education are now the hallmarks of childhood. As author Anthony Esolen demonstrates in this elegantly written, often wickedly funny book, almost everything we are doing to children now constricts their imaginations, usually to serve the ulterior motives of the constrictors.

Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child takes square aim at these accelerating trends, in a bitingly witty style reminiscent of C. S. Lewis, while offering parents—and children—hopeful alternatives. Esolen shows how imagination is snuffed out at practically every turn: in the rearing of children almost exclusively indoors; in the flattening of love to sex education, and sex education to prurience and hygiene; in the loss of traditional childhood games; in the refusal to allow children to organize themselves into teams; in the effacing of the glorious differences between the sexes; in the dismissal of the power of memory, which creates the worst of all possible worlds in school—drudgery without even the merit of imparting facts; in the strict separation of the child’s world from the adult’s; and in the denial of the transcendent, which places a low ceiling on the child’s developing spirit and mind.

But Esolen doesn’t stop at pointing out the problem; he offers clear solutions as well. With charming stories from his own boyhood and an assist from the master authors and thinkers of the Western tradition, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child is a welcome respite from the overwhelming banality of contemporary culture. Interwoven throughout this indispensable guide to child rearing is a rich tapestry of the literature, music, art, and thought that once enriched the lives of American children.

Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child confronts contemporary trends in parenting and schooling by reclaiming lost traditions. This practical, insightful book is essential reading for any parent who cares about the paltry thing that childhood has become, and who wants to give a child something beyond the dull drone of today’s culture.

Used Heart & Mind What the Bible Says About Learning (USED)

product image
$6.00
Ruth Beechick s latest book offers fresh insight on what the Bible says about learning. Teaching and learning are more effective when people are viewed with heart with the image of God within them. All other learning theories view man as simply a body. The body learns by seeing, hearing, and sensing in other ways, but it is the heart that acts upon these stimuli. This book contains the most complete research available about the heart in the Bible. The Bible says the heart knows, considers, speaks, remembers, deceives, meditates, and other functions that modernists like to attribute to the brain. This book also reports physiological research that shows the Bible was right all along in the way it spoke about heart. A chart in the appendix summarizes almost 1000 Bible references to heart by meaning. By restoring our understanding of the role of heart, Dr. Beechick is reminding educators and parents and especially homeschoolers that we are not only educating, but truly training up the child in the way that he or she should go in the image of God."

Used It's So Much Work to Be Your Friend : Helping the Child With Learning Disabilities Find Social Success (USED)

product image
$9.00
Answers the most intense need of parents, teachers, and caregivers of learning disabled children -- or anyone who knows a child who needs a friend.

ADHD - Anxiety - Nonverbal - Communication - Disorders - Visual/Spatial - Disorders - Executive Functioning Difficulties

As any parent, teacher, coach, or caregiver of a learning disabled child knows, every learning disability has a social component. The ADD child constantly interrupts and doesn't follow directions. The child with visual-spatial issues loses his belongings. The child with a nonverbal communication disorder fails to gesture when she talks. These children are socially out of step with their peers, and often they are ridiculed or ostracized for their differences. A successful social life is immeasurably important to a child's happiness, health, and development, but until now, no book has provided practical, expert advice on helping learning disabled children achieve social success.

For more than thirty years, Richard Lavoie has lived with and taught learning disabled children. His bestselling videos and sellout lectures and workshops have made him one of the most respected experts in the field. Rick's pioneering techniques and practical strategies can help children ages six to seventeen

-Overcome shyness and low self-esteem
-Use appropriate body language to convey emotion
-Focus attention and avoid disruptive behavior
-Enjoy playdates and making friends
-Employ strategies for counteracting bullying and harassment
-Master the Hidden Curriculum and polish the apple with teachers

It's So Much Work to Be Your Friend answers the most intense need of parents, teachers, and caregivers of learning disabled children -- or anyone who knows a child who needs a friend.

Natalie Rathvon solves the mystery of underachievement in children by looking beneath the child's surface behavior.

She discloses the beliefs that influence an underachiever's attitude and actions and pinpoints the warning signs to watch for in elementary, middle, and high school students.

By explaining in detail how parents and teachers can help a child live up to his or her potential, Rathvon offers solutions to problems, including guidelines for supporting the students through the change process, including dealing with setbacks, seven strategies for overcoming the "homework trap"--from helping children work effectively at home to making sure they bring their work to school, eight practical techniques for working with teachers to encourage a new approach to learning and school behavior, and five methods for communicating constructively with an underachiever.
