How to nurture young children's well-being and learning to reverse the erosion of childhood? Children's lives have been speeded up by commercialisation, 'adultification', and the government's 'nappy curriculum' which 'schoolifies' them and pushes quasi-formal learning too soon. Now, in twenty-three hard-hitting chapters, leading educators, researchers, policy makers and parents advocate alternative ways ahead for slowing childhood, better policy-making and, above all, the 'right learning at the right time' in children's growth ? learning when they are developmentally ready.

Three sisters arrive in San Francisco after their mother dies with dreams of making a new life for themselves. Honora, the eldest, quickly falls in love with the suave and devastatingly handsome Curt Ivory, an employee at the engineering firm of the girls’ wealthy uncle, Gideon Talbott. When Gideon hears of the twosome’s romance, he fires Curt, and the young couple must flee down the Californian coast. Desperate to support himself and Honora, Curt starts his own firm, which quickly gains prominence and becomes Gideon’s biggest business rival. Meanwhile, Crystal, the beautiful but manipulative middle sister, and the spunky and clever younger daughterJocelyn are left with Gideon, and Crystal agrees to be Gideon’s wife out of greed rather than love. Jocelyn is horrified by Crystal’s choice and runs away to Los Angeles to live with Honora and Curt. In L.A., Crystal flourishes, graduating from a prestigious college and working as an engineer at Curt’s firm. Despite her talent in the workplace, she gives up her job to marry the charming but reserved Malcolm Peck, a decision that leads her to make choices she will later regret until the day she dies. Through it all, the three sisters remain connected by an unbreakable bond—one that is tested again and again by acts of betrayal and deceit, and twists of fate that shake them to their very core. A steamy saga that takes readers from engineering sites in the most remote corners of the globe, to the posh neighborhoods of Hollywood, and finally to a dramatic conclusion on the floor of the Senate, Too Much Too Soon is the ultimate exploration of love and the relationships that define us all.

WHY ARE GIRLS as young as five years old concerned about their looks and addicted to shopping? WHY ARE YOUNG TEENAGE GIRLS having sex and binge-drinking, responding to chat-room predators, and bullying their peers via email and text messages? WHY ARE DEPRESSION, cutting and eating disorders on the rise, and why, with so much choice when it comes to careers, do so many just want to marry young and have babies? Over two years Maggie Hamilton interviewed girls, teachers, school counsellors, psychologists, and law enforcement and medical personnel to get an insider's view on what girls are experiencing at present, from birth to the teenage years. Informed, revealing, compassionate and at times shocking, What's Happening to Our Girls? is a book for parents and all those who want to better understand and support girls. 'I found myself so engrossed that for two days running I nearly missed my tram stop . . . A definite must-read for parents with daughters, for teachers and for other people dealing with girls, In fact, everyone should read this book.'

Too High, Too Far, Too Soon is the humorous, tragic and searingly honest memoir of a man who survived childhood tragedy, Catholic boarding school and chronic drug addiction. Simon Mason graphically details his experience of teenage angst in a tatty seaside town before he ran away to London and then onwards to the crack-infested streets of LA. He recounts his numerous decadent adventures at Glastonbury Festival and the notoriety that came during his stint as personal chemist to the biggest bands of the '90s, before he himself descended into a helpless period of heroin addiction. After several incidents of petty crime stemming from his drug problem, Simon launched numerous failed attempts to become a bona fide rock 'n' roll star and even more failed attempts to get clean, finally being ‘rescued’ by Banksy from a stolen camper van, covered in blood in the Spanish countryside. Too High, Too Far, Too Soon is a rock 'n' roll memoir with a difference, written by a man who lived the life and attained the drug habits of the most extreme rock stars, yet whose attempts to break through to the big time always eluded him.

The yelling continued. Then suddenly we heard it. Our father stood with a gaze that terrified me to my core. Motioning the gun upward, he turned it on himself and pulled the trigger, repeating the sound that sent shockwaves through my heart. Too Much, Too Soon, chronicles thirty-five years of a life commencing in a great tragedy. It is this horrible tragedy that ultimately uncovers a truth that would leave Catina Woods and her seven-year-old heart struggling well into adulthood with issues of loneliness, abandonment, and the pain of rejection. In a quest to find unconditional love and acceptance, Catina's life was further interrupted by life-halting mindsets, the pursuit of wrong relationships, and abortion. With all this discouragement, Catina wondered if she would ever find love, confidence, strength, and the grace she really needed. In her touching memoir, see the hand of God transform a life of despair into a life of expectancy, discover what unrivaled love, acceptance, forgiveness, and victory in the Father wait for you.

"Parents and educators take note: Dr. John Perito's book should be required reading for anyone associated in any way with teenagers. His wide-ranging discussion of the still-prickly topic of adolescent sexuality is refreshing, informative, and uncannily accurate; his consideration of the topic within the context of faith is both needed and unprecedented. All people of faith will welcome Dr. Perito's sensitive yet eminently practical approach. This book serves not only as an effective manual for parents and educators, but as point of departure for candid dialogue between adults and teens. As such, it should prove a valuable educational resource that can literally save lives and prevent heartache." —Frank J. Masci, Ph.D."There is much talk about sex, except between parents and adolescents. There is not much talk at all about sexuality and spirituality. John Perito, however, insists that sexual development and spiritual development must go together for healthy human persons. Based on his expertise as a psycho-therapist, a husband, a parent, and a committed Christian, Perito proposes a masterful, realistic, and appealing approach of how parents should communicate with their children about sex." —Charles E. Curran, Professor of Human Values, SMU Adolescents' sexual behaviors and attitudes are causing considerable anxiety, confusion, and discussion among parents, teachers, and clergy. Even very young adolescents are engaging in sexual behaviors that are deemed appropriate for adults, and our culture and media are more than ready to promote these behaviors. School boards debate endlessly about what should or should not be included in the sexual education curriculum. This book will offer definite principles and guidance to help calm this turmoil.

In On The Fast Track-teens getting too much too soon in these rapidly changing and uncertain times and what parents can do to stay connected, Kimberly Quinn Smith addresses the issues that teenagers are presently dealing with in relation to their world from middle school through the college years. She offers strategies to help parents understand their teens, and in a sense to grow with them. Kimberly Quinn Smith interviews current experts in the fields of gender issues, social psychology, and clinical psychology, as well as teens who are struggling with alcoholism and drug addiction, depression, social disorders, and homosexuality. She discusses the latest trend of tattoos and body piercing, as well as the theory on the new moral shades of gray or moral relativity. She discusses adolescent anger, conflict resolution, and the latest sexual epidemic sweeping our country, the friends with benefits relationship. In On The Fast Track, there is a large focus on attachment issues and the apparent emotional disconnection that appears to be so prevalent in our society today.
