To Train Up a Child, first published in 1994, began as a letter to a homeschool mother in answer to her question, "How did you train your children to be so happy and obedient?" Mike did not consider himself to be an author, nor did Debi possess the means or the knowledge to publish a book. They realized that it was a big subject that could not be put into a few pages, so they wrote a book. Friends and neighbors were consulted, gleaning their views and methods of child training. They analyzed how they were influenced by the traditions they inherited from their parents, and they looked at the methods that were unique to their family. Friends and members of their church periodically read and critiqued the manuscript as it grew to book size. Twenty-one years later, To Train Up a Child has sold over 1.2 million copies in twelve languages. TTUAC has been on Amazon's best-seller list several times. This new book has added chapters and several updates. Mike and Debi have received tens of thousands of letters of gratitude and been approached by thousands of young people thanking them for their influence in the way they were raised, their parents having implemented the principles expressed in TTUAC. Mike and Debi are humbled to have played a part in so many young people's lives. There has been no editing to modify their stance on spanking. To the contrary, due to the media attacks, they have expanded and strengthened their arguments for traditional, biblical child training. There are now more than a million TTUAC books circulating in the United States that will continue to stand for traditional, biblical parenting.

Breastfeeding and Media

Author: Katherine A. Foss
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319564425
Release Date: 2017-06-17
Genre: Social Science

This book centers on the role of media in shaping public perceptions of breastfeeding. Drawing from magazines, doctors’ office materials, parenting books, television, websites, and other media outlets, Katherine A. Foss explores how historical and contemporary media often undermine breastfeeding efforts with formula marketing and narrow portrayals of nursing women and their experiences. Foss argues that the media’s messages play an integral role in setting the standard of public knowledge and attitudes toward breastfeeding, as she traces shifting public perceptions of breastfeeding and their corresponding media constructions from the development of commercial formula through contemporary times. This analysis demonstrates how attributions of blame have negatively impacted public health approaches to breastfeeding, thus confronting the misperception that breastfeeding, and the failure to breastfeed, rests solely on the responsibility of an individual mother.

Release Date: 2016-03
Genre: Pets

What has changed in the last twenty-five years in the relationship of Poles with their dogs? How have the free market and capitalism influenced Poland and the human-canine bond there? Are dogs "property," "friends," or "members of the family" in post-communist Poland? Free Market Dogs, edited by Michał Piotr Pręgowski and Justyna Włodarczyk, examines the interactions and relationships of dogs and humans in contemporary Polish culture and society, and explores how Poland's intense exposure to Western--and particularly American--cultural patterns influenced the status of dogs after restoration of democracy in 1989. This book discusses topics such as the emergence of pet cemeteries, dog memoirs, and presidential dogs in Poland; the growing popularity of dog sports and the feminization of said sports; the philosophical and ideological changes in dog training caused by exposure to state-of-the-art methods from American books and videos; dogs in contemporary Polish art; and the specificity and growing pains of local pet-facilitated therapy. Free Market Dogs was written by researchers and practitioners whose academic background includes sociology, anthropology, pedagogy, cultural studies, and literary studies, and whose practical experience involves either training dogs or working with them. Based on thorough research and personal expertise, this is a great book for anyone interested in human-canine relationships--and their similarities and differences--around the world.

Was ist deine Bestimmung? Altruan – die Selbstlosen. Candor – die Freimütigen. Ken – die Wissenden. Amite – die Friedfertigen. Und schließlich Ferox – die Furchtlosen ... Fünf Fraktionen, fünf völlig verschiedene Lebensformen sind es, zwischen denen Beatrice, wie alle Sechzehnjährigen ihrer Welt, wählen muss. Ihre Entscheidung wird ihr gesamtes zünftiges Leben bestimmen, denn die Fraktion, der sie sich anschließt, gilt fortan als ihre Familie. Doch der Eignungstest, der über Beatrices innere Bestimmung Auskunft geben soll, zeigt kein eindeutiges Ergebnis. Sie ist eine Unbestimmte, sie trägt mehrere widerstreitende Begabungen in sich. Damit gilt sie als Gefahr für die Gemeinschaft. Beatrice entscheidet sich, ihre bisherige Fraktion, die Altruan, zu verlassen, und schließt sich den wagemutigen Ferox an. Dort aber gerät sie ins Zentrum eines Konflikts, der nicht nur ihr Leben, sondern auch das all derer, die sie liebt, bedroht...
