Your Seven-Year-Old is devoted to the delightful but often anxious and withdrawn child of Seven. Although any seven-year-old will have moments of exuberance, security, and happiness, in general this is an age of introspection. As it begins, parents and teachers may welcome the quiet after the tussles and tangles of Six. But once the child of Seven starts to withdraw it’s almost as though he doesn't know where or when to stop. Seven-year-olds feel picked on by family, friends, and teachers alike; they worry that no one likes them; they expect every little task to prove too difficult to handle; tears come easily at this age. With wit and wisdom, Dr. Ames of the highly respected Gesell Institute and Carol Chase Haber offer insights into what children this age are feeling and thinking, and how parents can best deal with these moody, serious Sevens. Included in this book: • New body awareness • Sulking • Concerns about fairness • Stories from real life • Fascination with horror, gore • Threats of running away from home • Life in the second grade • Books for Sevens and the parents of Sevens “Louise Bates Ames and her colleagues synthesize a lifetime of observation of children, consultation, and discussion with parents.

The six-year-old is a complex child, entirely different from the five-year-old. Though many of the changes are for the good -- Six is growing more mature, more independent, more daring and adventurous -- this is not necessarily an easy time for the little girl or boy. Relationships with mothers are troubled -- most of the time Six adores mother, but whenever things go wrong, it's her fault. It used to be, at Five, that she was the center of the child's universe; now, the child is the center of his own universe. Parents need the expert advice of Drs. Ames and Ilg during this difficult year, to explain parent-child relations, friendships with peers, what six-year-olds excel at, how they see the world, what it feels like to be entering the first grade. Children need patience and understanding to help make this transition easier. From the Trade Paperback edition.

My Enemy My Friend

Author: Lauren Vaknine
Publisher:
ISBN: 0956528600
Release Date: 2010-04
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

'My Enemy, My Friend is the touching and inspirational story of a broken girl in a wheelchair who found strength and comfort despite her life changing disability. Diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 2, Lauren's anger towards her disability drove her into a rapid downward spiral of self-destruction. Adolescence filled with broken promises and a suddenly deteriorating disease led her to borderline anorexia, depression, drugs and other tremendously traumatic experiences; Lauren recalls these experiences for the first time within this book. My Enemy, My Friend describes this tragic time in her life and how she found the strength and determination to live life on her terms...' In this most honest and poignant account of a lifetime of illness spanning twenty-five years, the author explores unspoken subjects, such as the deep, underlying emotional issues that ensue through a physical illness and affect everyone close to the person with the illness, not just the person suffering physically. Lauren Vaknine talks openly about this issue and stresses the need for emotional support or counselling to be offered to families of children with chronic illnesses. In Lauren's case, her family had to find their own way, with no guidance whatsoever and here, she takes a deeper look into how this affected each of them, including herself, where she learns that it was the resentment towards her illness that led her to the darkest of times. She also illustrates why homeopathy should no longer be considered 'the last resort'. From a wheelchair-bound eighteen year old taking conventional medication, to a healthy twenty-five year old on nothing but homeopathy and supplements, it raises a few very controversial questions; is it the 'placebo' effect and the belief that works or is there more to these time-honoured remedies than we give them credit for? And have Lauren's spiritual beliefs helped along the way at all? The author tries to understand why she is the only person in her situation with no joint deformities, joint replacements or organ damage. Is it a coincidence? Whatever your views on spiritual growth and integrated medicine, one thing remains true, Lauren Vaknine's depiction of emotional and physical pain will make it hard for you to put down this book and any parent, child or person who has ever been ill, will be able to relate to the issues so honestly touched upon in this book.
