You've seen them - kids running wild through restaurants while the parents avert their gaze and order another cappuccino. You've heard them - kids telling their parents to 'shut up' and 'get me that.' You've met them - kids who dress inappropriately and roll their eyes and never say 'thank you.' Maybe one of those kids belongs to you. Combining incisive commentary with grounded, practical advice, Your Kid's a Brat and It's All Your Faultwill have you recognizing and laughing at yourself, your fellow parents, and a culture that seems determined to turn our precious angels into not-so-precious brats. Divided into three sections - 'Your Budding Brat' for toddlers and preschoolers, 'Your Bratty Child' for grade-schoolers, and 'Your Bratty Tween' - this book is packed with wisdom and tips culled from the trenches of child-rearing. Your Kid's a Brat and It's All Your Faultwill not only help you grow adept at responding to specific misbehaviors, but also will encourage and empower you to become the confident, respected parent you yearn to be. 'Elaine Glickman is not afraid to call a brat a brat. Our wonderful kids we love so much CAN be selfish, interrupting, non-sharing, meal-ruining, bank-breaking, party-demanding brats. That doesn't mean things can't change, especially with a little help from someone calm and smart and, thank god, FUNNY. You're holding her book in your trembling hands now!' Lenore Skenazy, founder of the book, blog, and movement 'Free-Range Kids'

Empowering parents to mentor and prepare their sons for life. Every parent of a teenage boy knows there are certain conversations they must have with their son. But too often they put them off - or don't have them at all - because they simply don't know where to start. Internationally recognised in the field of raising and educating boys, Dr Tim Hawkes provides practical, accessible and invaluable advice about how to get these discussions started. Helping parents to negotiate their way through what can be difficult territory, Dr Hawkes explores the why, what and how of ten key topics: love, identity, values, leadership, achievement, sex, money, health, living together and resilience. For each topic, Dr Hawkes offers ideas about how parents can share their own experiences, values and knowledge with their sons. This book will help you prepare your son for adulthood. 'this book is a starting point - of starting conversations that should be had in a fast-paced world' - Martina Simos, Herald Sun, The Daily Telegraph, Adelaide Advertiser '[Hawkes] reassure[s] parents they actually hold the answers to unleashing well adjusted men into the world' - Armadale Examiner (10/07/2014) 'Parents of boys should grab a copy Dr Tim Hawkes' book' - Sunday Canberra Times

“Entertaining, illuminating and—when you recognize yourself in the stories it tells—mortifying.” —Wall Street Journal “Every page sparkles with sharp insight and keen observation. Mistakes were made—but not in this book!” —Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness Why is it so hard to say “I made a mistake”—and really believe it? When we make mistakes, cling to outdated attitudes, or mistreat other people, we must calm the cognitive dissonance that jars our feelings of self-worth. And so, unconsciously, we create fictions that absolve us of responsibility, restoring our belief that we are smart, moral, and right—a belief that often keeps us on a course that is dumb, immoral, and wrong. Backed by years of research, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me) offers a fascinating explanation of self-justification—how it works, the damage it can cause, and how we can overcome it. This updated edition features new examples and concludes with an extended discussion of how we can live with dissonance, learn from it, and perhaps, eventually, forgive ourselves. “A revelatory study of how lovers, lawyers, doctors, politicians—and all of us—pull the wool over our own eyes . . . Reading it, we recognize the behavior of our leaders, our loved ones, and—if we’re honest—ourselves, and some of the more perplexing mysteries of human nature begin to seem a little clearer.” —Francine Prose, O, The Oprah Magazine

The New York Times bestseller by the author of the forthcoming novel Alice & Oliver | Winner of the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters | A New York Times Notable Book “One word: bravo.”—The New York Times Book Review “Truly powerful . . . Beautiful Children dazzles its readers on almost every page. . . . [Charles Bock] knows how to tug at your heart, and he knows how to make you laugh out loud, often on the same page, sometimes in the same sentence.”—Newsweek One Saturday night in Las Vegas, twelve-year-old Newell Ewing goes out with a friend and doesn’t come home. In the aftermath of his disappearance, his mother, Lorraine, makes daily pilgrimages to her son’s room and tortures herself with memories. Equally distraught, the boy’s father, Lincoln, finds himself wanting to comfort his wife even as he yearns for solace, a loving touch, any kind of intimacy. As the Ewings navigate the mystery of what’s become of their son, the circumstances surrounding Newell’s vanishing and other events on that same night reverberate through the lives of seemingly disconnected strangers: a comic book illustrator in town for a weekend of debauchery; a painfully shy and possibly disturbed young artist; a stripper who imagines moments from her life as if they were movie scenes; a bubbly teenage wiccan anarchist; a dangerous and scheming gutter punk; a band of misfit runaways. The people of Beautiful Children are “urban nomads,” each with a past to hide and a pain to nurture, every one of them searching for salvation and barreling toward destruction, weaving their way through a neon underworld of sex, drugs, and the spinning wheels of chance. In this masterly debut novel, Charles Bock mixes incandescent prose with devious humor to capture Las Vegas with unprecedented scope and nuance and to provide a glimpse into a microcosm of modern America. Beautiful Children is an odyssey of heartache and redemption heralding the arrival of a major new writer. Praise for Beautiful Children “Exceptional . . . This novel deserves to be read more than once because of the extraordinary importance of its subject matter.”—The Washington Post Book World “Magnificent . . . a hugely ambitious novel that succeeds . . . Beautiful Children manages to feel completely of its moment while remaining unaffected by literary trends. . . . Charles Bock is the real thing.”—The New Republic “A wildly satisfying and disturbing literary journey, led by an author of blazing talent.”—The Dallas Morning News “Wholly original—dirty, fast, and hypnotic. The sentences flicker and skip and whirl.”—Esquire “An anxious, angry, honest first novel filled with compassion and clarity . . . The language has a rhythm wholly its own—at moments it is stunning, near genius.”—A. M. Homes “From start to finish, Bock never stops tantalizing the reader.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Rich and compelling . . . captures the hallucinogenic setting like a fever dream.”—Los Angeles Times From the Hardcover edition.

The great question before our country now is when will middle-class Americans, especially the white middle class, finally wake up and realize that now they are the new "n" words and are being discriminated against and exploited. If you are white, maybe you can't see this because this kind of treatment used to be reserved for us (African Americans). But the fact is that they are treating you with disdain and you are getting poorer and poorer. They are taking the American Dream away from you and your children by refusing to invest in the education and training that leads to opportunities for higher-paying jobs, occupations, and professions. Our elected officials have sold you out to some of the super-rich elitists, seeing you as cheap labor, just like they saw us.
