Family Whispering: the Baby Whisperer's Commonsense Strategies for Communicating and Connecting with the People You Love and Making Your Whole Family Stronger. Melinda Blau & Tracy Hogg, $28.99

Before her untimely death in 2004, Tracy — aka the Baby Whisperer — and her long-time collaborator, journalist Melinda Blau, conceived a fourth book that would apply the commonsense principles of baby whispering to the “whole family.” This ground-breaking book explains why “family” is defined by much more than the relationship between parent and child. By widening the lens to focus on the family as an entity, Blau uses the Baby Whisperer philosophy to illuminate how the multiple bonds and interactions that unfold within a household of adults and children coalesce to form a larger family dynamic. By taking this wider perspective, she enables readers to see everyday challenges — such as sibling rivalry, communication, and time management — with fresh eyes. 

Informed both by research and stories of real families, this new book is filled with the handy tips and memorable acronyms that Baby Whisperer fans have come to expect. The advice is simple, practical, and often counterintuitive. The hopeful message is that with insight, awareness, and “family-think,” we can actually design our families to be happier and more productive, improving the daily lives of parents and kids — and, thereby, benefiting society as a whole in the process.


Getting to 50/50: How Working Couples Can Have It All by Sharing It All. Sharon Meers & Joanna Strober, $28.00

The starting point? An attitude shift that puts you on the road to 50/50.

Here are real-world solutions for parents who want to get ahead in their careers and still get to their children’s soccer games; strategies for working mothers facing gender bias in the workplace; advice to fathers new to the home front; and tips for finding 50/50 solutions to deal with issues of money, time, and much more.

Is That Me Yelling? A Parent's Guide to Getting Your Kids to Cooperate Without Losing Your Cool. Rona Renner, $19.95

Being a parent is hard work! And when your child refuses to do even the little things — like picking up their toys, taking a bath, or getting in the car to go to school — it's easy to become frustrated. While most books on discipline are “one size fits all,” this book offers a tailored parenting approach. Inside, you will learn powerful mindfulness techniques based in cognitive behavioral theory (CBT) and temperament theory to help reduce conflict and foster cooperation, respect, and understanding in your family. You will also learn the real reasons behind your frustration, how your unique temperament, as well as your child's, can contribute to you losing your temper, and how you can start feeling calm, and connect with your child in a positive way, right away.

As a parent, you need real, practical solutions to help you communicate effectively and compassionately with your children in a way that will benefit you both. This book will show you how.


The Joy of Parenting: an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Guide to Effective Parenting in the Early Years. Lisa Coyne & Amy Murrell, $22.95

Parents are supposed to be at their best when their children are at their worst. The only problem is that parents are susceptible to knee-jerk reactions, anger, and fears that make perfect parenting nearly impossible. But it is possible to keep your long-term parenting goals in mind, give yourself credit for what you're doing right, and most importantly, enjoy the rewards and joy of raising a child.

The Joy of Parenting is a compassionate guide for parents who sometimes feel overwhelmed-that is, all parents. The acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) skills in this book will help you develop the flexibility and mindfulness to help your child make critical transitions and gracefully move past the bumps along the way.

Child psychologist Kenneth Barish demonstrates how a deeper appreciation of our children's emotions offers parents a new understanding of their children's development and better solutions to the problems in their lives.  He shows how we can repair family relationships that have been damaged by frequent anger and resentment and how we can preserve our children's idealism and their concern for others - how we can raise children who feel good about themselves and also care about the needs and feelings of others. Barish also offers advice on how to solve common problems of daily family life, such as:

  • establishing rules and limits
  • doing homework
  • going to sleep
  • winning and losing at games
  • our children's reluctance to talk to us
  • tantrums
  • lack of motivation
  • television and video games
  • and other issues that too often erode the joyfulness of our children and our pleasure in being parents.

Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice: Over 50 Solutions to Everyday Parenting Challenges. Sarah Chana Radcliffe, $16.50

Reclaiming Conversation: the Power of Talk in a Digital Age. Sherry Turkle, $35.95

Renowned media scholar Sherry Turkle investigates how a flight from conversation undermines our relationships, creativity, and productivity — and why reclaiming face-to-face conversation can help us regain lost ground. Based on five years of research and interviews in homes, schools, and the workplace, Turkle argues that we have come to a better understanding of where our technology can and cannot take us and that the time is right to reclaim conversation. The most human — and humanizing — thing that we do. The virtues of person-to-person conversation are timeless, and our most basic technology, talk, responds to our modern challenges. We have everything we need to start, we have each other. 


Respect: a Girl's Guide to Getting Respect & Dealing When Your Line is Crossed. Courtney Macavinta & Andrea Vander Pluym, $24.99

To be respected, girls need to know how they want to be treated, treat themselves that way, and let others know (respectfully, of course) to do the same. This smart, savvy book helps teen girls get respect and hold on to it no matter what. It covers topics they deal with daily, like body image, family, friends, the media, school, relationships, and rumors. It confronts tough issues like sexual harassment, date rape, sex, drugs, and alcohol. And it debunks the myths and stereotypes that hold girls back. Sidebars, scenarios, quotes from teens, tips, definitions, activities, and writing exercises get girls' attention and keep them involved. The understanding, supportive "big sister" style inspires trust. Girls learn that respect is connected to everything, every girl deserves respect, and that respect is always within reach because it starts on the inside.
