Renowned psychologist Walter Mischel, designer of the famous Marshmallow Test, explains what self-control is and how to master it. A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: Eat this one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will she do? And what are the implications for her behavior later in life? The world's leading expert on self-control, Walter Mischel has proven that the ability to delay gratification is critical for a successful life, predicting higher SAT scores, better social and cognitive functioning, a healthier lifestyle and a greater sense of self-worth. But is willpower prewired, or can it be taught? In The Marshmallow Test, Mischel explains how self-control can be mastered and applied to challenges in everyday life--from weight control to quitting smoking, overcoming heartbreak, making major decisions, and planning for retirement. With profound implications for the choices we make in parenting, education, public policy and self-care, The Marshmallow Test will change the way you think about who we are and what we can be.
This book started out as a way for me to get self-help. Call it therapeutic if you will. The events expressed throughout the book are based on a true story. As I wrote down notes and started a running story line, I started to realize I cant be the only parent out there that has experienced the types of events that I have gone through along the way. Having said that, I strongly believe that if it has helped me, it would prove to be beneficial to others who are in a similar situation. It doesnt even have to be the struggles associated with mental illness. However, if its a circumstance that finds you in the position of being a single parent, you will be okay. Statistics show, youre not alone. Its not easy, but the fact that youre hanging in there and doing the best that you can is extremely important. The love that you have demonstrated towards your kids and the love they have for you will be the greatest reward that youll ever need.
This is an intimate look at a perfectionist mother who learned to live her best life by giving up the reins. Rather than continuing to practice control and conquer parenting she strives to honor the uniqueness of each of her children, accept her own innate mothering style and by slowing down, appreciate the beauty that surrounds her. This books speaks to the masses of mothers who feel uncertain at times and offers a new approach, a new calm and ultimately a new happy place.

The enigmatic stories in this haunting collection deal with individuals striving to live outside the dominant American culture--people who do not want to be incorporated, appropriated, or consumed. Their battles are waged on interior and external landscapes, pitting clarity against confusion, faith against fear, the marginalized against the powerful, the passive against the aggressive. In one story, a Mennonite mother leaves her alcoholic husband and moves with her three children into an abandoned house and back to a life of faith, though a new faith, one of her own making. In another story, a teenager living in the darkness of a failing rust-belt city holds before her the only light she sees, her child, to guide the way as she moves across the border and beyond. A young artist in New York City pursues a simple life, a passive life, the yielding life of a Mennonite, even as she immerses herself in the gritty urban culture of the East Village. Another woman, given a short time to live, sets up ant farms on her stoop in Alphabet City and is determined to discover how worlds are made by watching the ants and only the ants. A Vietnam veteran finds meaning as a dishwasher at the Catholic Worker, where he circles on his stump of a leg, aware that the thing that is missing, that cannot be seen, is most present. Many of these stories experiment with the form of writing itself. They reflect the vision of an artist who remains separate--in the world, but not of the world--and whose goal is not to dazzle or entertain, but simply, humbly to be present for each word.
