be a good parent
What is the custodial parent required to provide for the noncustodial parent for a visitation in CA?

Usually I provide the other parent with everything, car seat, diapers, wipes, snacks, clothes, etc. But I have been told that I don’t need to provide the other parent with any of these.

I was a custodial parent as a Father. When the children went to visit their mother they were sent with suitcases full of nice clean clothes. Often they carried snacks and toys. Lots of stuff never got back home again. I did not go through that to serve my ex, I did it for my children. You do not need to provide everything for your child, but you probably will out of love for the child.

Don’t expect to get things back in the same condition they were in when they left. This will only be a big deal if you make it such.

Every other week-end I had to remind myself,” I’m doing this for the kids.” It was so bad that I was happy just to get the clothes back even if they were all dirty. Sometimes they simply vanished.

Good Morning Nation ;)

Now he offers expert advice for both recognizing financial exploitation and abuse and the many ways abuse can be prevented.

Since Owen: A Parent-To-Parent Guide for Care of the Disabled Child


Since Owen: A Parent-To-Parent Guide for Care of the Disabled Child


$3.95


They called him Owen. Born on January 3, 1960, he was fair and blue-eyed, and he seemed as healthy as his four brothers and sisters. Today Owen lives in a school for the severely disabled near Frankfort, Kentucky. For his parents, Charles and Mary Callanan, the years "since Owen" have brought a continuing struggle to cope and an unending search for answers. They desperately needed information– information they couldn’t always find in medical journals or the out-of-date pamphlets displayed in agency waiting rooms. The more they learned, the more they wanted to share what they learned with other parents. This book is the result. "Since Owen" is more than one family’s story. It is both a comprehensive guidebook and an information-packed resource for parents of children with disabilities. With compassion, common sense, wisdom, and good humor, Charles Callanan shares what he and his family have learned in the nearly three decades "since Owen"– from one parent to another. "Since Owen" explores topics ranging from genetic counseling to placement in an institution, from the many causes of birth defects to planning for the child’s future "after we’re gone." It describes hospital personnel and procedures. The transition from hospital to home. The daily routine of raising a child with special needs. National organizations and support groups. The child’s right to an education– and how parents can fight to make sure that right is upheld. A concluding section looks at the disabled child as an adult and discusses such topics as living arrangements, sexuality, and religion. Most important of all, "Since Owen" gives families the reassuring message that they are not alone.

How to Be a Good Parent: By Dealing Effectively with the Most Common Behavioral Problems of Children


How to Be a Good Parent: By Dealing Effectively with the Most Common Behavioral Problems of Children


$29.94


Children are not born knowing how to behave properly. They require guidance and discipline. Nationally recognized clinical psychologist Don Fontenelle arms parents with established methods that improve child behavior and reduce household stress. Fontenelle instructs parents on how to raise kids to be happy, well-adjusted adults. This comprehensive guide covers basic techniques for parenting children of all ages. Using behavior modification, Fontenelle emphasizes alternate discipline and stresses the importance of effective communication between parent and child. As children and adolescents undergo phases of development, they often grow out of certain inappropriate behaviors. Therefore, it is important for parents to recognize when problems will diminish with regular discipline and when stronger intervention is required. The first section of Fontenelle’s guide includes twelve chapters, which focus on identifying behaviors and how to counteract common misbehavior. In the second and third sections, he presents frequent parental anxieties in two categories, general and specific concerns. Fontenelle provides multiple examples of behaviors and solutions based on his twenty-five years of experience, covering a wide range of issues, from depression and anger to immaturity and manipulation to ADD and obsessive-compulsive characteristics. The author gives every parent the resources to make raising children a more productive experience.

All parents must address the question of vaccinating their children. Fifty years ago the vaccine question asked by parents was simply, When? But with the development of new vaccines, the dramatic changes in immunization schedules, and disturbing reports of the risks and possible side effects associated with certain vaccines, parents have more questions and greater concerns. Today parents are asking: Will this vaccine be safe for my child? What are the side effects? Is this the best way to safeguard my child’s health and the health of our community? Does my child need to be immunized from a disease that barely exists anymore? Vaccinating Your Child addresses the medical, ethical, and legal issues parents need to know about so they can make informed decisions about individual vaccinations. The authors provide the most up-to-date information available from the medical community about immunization and the benefits and risks of each vaccination for the individual and the community. They also address the special concerns associated with specific vaccinations, including the oral polio vaccine and the controversial rotavirus vaccine, which has now been removed from the market. The authors also review the vaccines that children may need as they grow up and the vaccines that all family members may need as they travel around and outside of the United States.

Hockey Dad: True Confessions of a (Crazy?) Hockey Parent


Hockey Dad: True Confessions of a (Crazy?) Hockey Parent


$3.95


A revealing look at the good, the bad and the ugly of the minor hockey culture as seen through the eyes of a Hockey Dad cum Hockey Coach who just happens to be one of the most recognized hockey personalities in North America. This Hockey Dad, Bob McKenzie, is not afraid to look into the mirror and candidly assess and reveal his own strengths and weaknesses. He has anecdotes that will make you laugh, stories that will bring a tear to your eye, and insights into this minor hockey world that can only come from having lived through the highs and the lows and everything in between with two boys who grew up in an environment where minor hockey was their epicenter. Michael is now a 22-year-old entering his junior year playing NCAA hockey on scholarship, one step away from the professional ranks. Shawn, now 19, had his competitive minor hockey life cut drastically short at age 14 because of complications from multiple concussions. While Michael has attempted to, and continues to try to, scale the heights within hockey, Shawn has, at times, had to navigate the depths. Their deeply personal stories, and how their father dealt with them (sometimes well, sometimes not so well), are a compelling look into the world of minor hockey–a major Canadian passion. From hysterically funny anecdotes, to debates on numerous hockey issues, praise and criticism for the system, and personal reflections on the game, this book is an insightful, irreverent, and moving look at a slice of hockey culture that is not so much a recreation as it is a way of life.

Prescribing Under Pressure: Parent-Physician Conversations and Antibiotics


Prescribing Under Pressure: Parent-Physician Conversations and Antibiotics


$33.94


Antibiotics will soon no longer be able to cure common illnesses such as strep throat, sinusitis and middle ear infections as they have done for the last 60 years. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are increasing at a much faster rate than new antibiotics to treat them are being developed. The prescription of antibiotics for viral illnesses is a key cause of increasing bacterial resistance. Despite this fact, many children continue to receive antibiotics unnecessarily for the treatment of viral upper respiratory tract infections. Why do American physicians continue to prescribe inappropriately given the high social stakes of this action? The answer appears to lie in the fundamentally social nature of medical practice: physicians do not prescribe as the result of a clinical algorithm but prescribe in the context of a conversation with a parent and a child. Thus, physicians have a classic social dilemma which pits individual parents and children against a greater social good. This book examines parent-physician conversations in detail, showing how parents put pressure on doctors in largely covert ways, for instance in specific communication practices for explaining why they have brought their child to the doctor or answering a history-taking question. This book also shows how physicians yield to this seemingly subtle pressure evidencing that apparently small differences in wording have important consequences for diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Following parents use of these interactional practices, physicians are more likely to make concessions, alter their diagnosis or alter their treatment recommendation. This book also shows how small changes in the way physicians present their findings and recommendations can decrease parent pressure for antibiotics. This book carefully documents the important and observable link between micro social interaction and macro public health domains.

Talking Sexuality: Parent-Adolescent Communication: New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development


Talking Sexuality: Parent-Adolescent Communication: New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development


$23


Negotiating sexuality during the adolescent years is a difficult task that can result in health-compromising outcomes if poor decisions are made. Experts, parents, and teens all believe that parents have an important role in providing sex education to their children and that such communication has the potential to help adolescents make good sexual decisions. However, parents find the task daunting; they often feel ill equipped, and teenagers feel uncomfortable and suspect parents of prying into their private lives. The last decade has witnessed important growth in research on family communications about sex and sexuality. This volume critically examines the assumption that parental communication plays an important role in helping children make good sexual decisions and act on them. It expands on earlier reviews by proposing a theoretical framework in a field that has largely been notable for its atheoretical approach, by providing methodological alternatives, by going beyond the expert-novice perspective to address communication from the young person s point of view, and by evaluating interventions designed to help parents become better communicators about this difficult, sensitive, and complex topic. It also presents new empirical work on the neglected topics of fathers involvement in sex-related communications with their children and teen-initiated communications by gay youth as they inform their parents about their sexual orientation. This is the 97th issue of the Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development.

American Parent: My Strange and Surprising Adventures in Modern Babyland


$3.95


Part memoir, part journalism, part history, part downright strange and hilarious, American Parent takes readers on a unique tour of the world of new mothers and fathers. As Sam Apple embarks on his own journey into parenthood, he decides to put his background in journalism to good use by talking to a wide range of experts. Along the way, Apple visits with the mohel who circumcised him, enters a trance with a childbirth hypnotist, goes on a stakeout with a nanny spy, and attends a lecture on Botox for new mothers. Apple is full of questions, and none is left unexplored: Is the Lamaze method a Stalinist plot? (Yes.) Are newborns really fetuses that are born too soon? (Sort of.) Is there a universal theory that can explain the origins of circumcision in many diverse cultures? (Maybe.) Does it sting when you pour baby shampoo into your own eyes? (Big-time ) And yet for all the unusual twists in this story-at one point Apple fantasizes about a father losing his mind and refusing to remove his BabyBjorn-the strangest twist of all might be that at its core American Parent is a deeply serious and personal book about the way emotionally vulnerable and confused new parents can get lost in the increasingly complex labyrinth of baby products, classes, and fads. Parenthood is the oldest subject of all. In American Parent, Sam Apple makes it feel entirely new.

The Paranoid Parents Guide: Worry Less, Parent Better, and Raise a Resilient Child


The Paranoid Parents Guide: Worry Less, Parent Better, and Raise a Resilient Child


$3.95


The debate between helicopter parents versus free-range parents causes confusion for parents who want to find the middle ground while raising independent kids, without being wracked with worry and guilt. Somewhere between "Free Range Kids" and "Perfect Madness" is the need for a book that addresses how to parent with common sense in our culture of paranoia. "The Paranoid Parent’s Guide" is that book. When surveyed by the author Christie Barnes, 75 percent of parents said they worried about "everything" when it came to their kids. Things like: "Is this really the right school? Will that splinter get infected? Will they get kidnapped playing in the front yard? Or the mall? Is my fifth-grader ready for sex-ed at school? Do we need a tutor? Is my child gifted? How could we forget the sight words we practiced this summer? Do I need to buy organic everything? "Paranoid Parents founder Christie Barnes knows the truth: Most parents are wasting their time and energy worrying about the wrong things. Based on information gleened from years of research, she will give parents a much-needed reality check, opening their eyes to the real dangers lurking that are more likely to impact their children-and what they can do about them. She will help paranoid parents to come clean about their biggest fears, reveal the true dangers their kids face at every stage as opposed to the Myth Makers, and offer realistic ways to safeguard their kids without stealing their childhoods. By rallying against a culture of fear with the facts, the "Paranoid Parents Guide" will help moms and dads enjoy parenthood more, and allow their kids develop the healthy straits of resiliency, independence, and good decision making that are essential-yet lacking-in today’s society. So stop worrying about a shark attack…because your child is more likely to be injured by a shopping cart. Think that ice hockey is more dangerous than cheering? Think again. Stop spending sleepless nights worried about stranger danger and learn why child-proofing your house is actually a very bad idea. As Barnes will prove, it’s easier to enjoy parenthood when you are prepared; not paranoid.

The State as Parent


The State as Parent


$99


The thirty-five chapters in this book are edited versions of papers presented at the Advanced Research Workshop, State Intervention on Behalf of Children and Youth, which took place in Maratea, Italy, February 20-24, 1989. The Workshop was attended by leading child welfare researchers from most of the Western countries. Represented were scholars and practitioners from disciplines as diverse as law, social work, neurology, economics, political science, education, psychology, and psychiatry. This variety of disciplines considerably enriched the discussions at the Workshop and is reflected in a set of interesting and, we believe, potentially useful research papers. This book is divided into four sections, each dealing with dominant themes of state intervention. The first section deals with research on organizing for state intervention and related ways of providing accountability. The second section deals with research on young persons in conflict with the law, the third with research on child abuse and the final section with research on children in care. Many of the matters addressed in these papers relate to more than one of the topical theme headings and, therefore, might well have been located in different sections of the volume. Each section is introduced by an introductory statement that provides an overview of the papers and issues addressed, and suggests an agenda of research work to be undertaken. These introductions are based largely on workshop discussions and do not necessarily represent the views of their identified authors.

Parent-Babble


Parent-Babble


$4.99


Best-selling parenting expert John Rosemond invalidates the psychobabble of contemporary parenting theories and deconstructs whats wrong with American parenting. His prescription for a new/old philosophy of parent-child relationships offers solutions to raising happier, healthier children. If you were to stack all the current parenting books on top of one another, the resulting pile would be nearly four times the height of the Freedom Tower. Parenting expert John Rosemond has dubbed this imaginary narrative construction the “Tower of Parent-Babble,” and, as was the case with the Tower of Babel, the building blocks of its construction have led to mass confusion with frustrated, anxious, clueless, and stressed-out parents raising spoiled, egocentric, unfocused, and unhappy children.In “Parent-Babble,” Rosemond asserts that America has been in the throes of an ever-deepening child-rearing crisis since the 1970s, and he explains how parents have moved away from the child-rearing basics of the 1950s and 1960s to focus on raising children with “high self-esteem.”But what could be wrong with high self-esteem? Plenty, according to Rosemond. High self-esteem is associated with anti-social behavior and little regard for others. In addition, children reared on postmodern psychological parenting theories are 10 times more likely to experience a serious emotional setback by the age of 16 compared with children who grew up in the 50s and 60s. In “Parent-Babble,” Rosemond deconstructs the faulty theories, points out the “experts” who have led parents astray, and calls for a return to values, a return to civility, and a return to raising healthy, happy, and productive adults.

Parent Project


Parent Project

Involving parents in their children’s schooling is a matter of intense concern in North America. Teachers and administrators want to construct a program that creates positive involvement. This is especially critical for Chapter I schools that are mandated to use a portion of their funds for home-and-school programs. Jim Vopat believes that parental involvement should strengthen the link between home and school, and to achieve this goal parents need to be introduced to the revitalized school classroom. "The Parent Project" calls on the most powerful aspects of school reform–workshops, journals, cooperative groups, shared reading, agenda building, interviewing, goal setting, and critical thinking-classroom learning strategies experienced by children every day. When parents work with these strategies, they understand them and discover how to support them. Using a workshop/process model, parents become involved with their children’s classroom activities and are thus empowered to support their children’s education. These workshops ensure participant ownership of a program’s overall agenda while providing long-term structures for support and continued development. "The Parent Project: "Provides a framework for implementing ways to get parents involved and informed.Was developed in urban bilingual school settings and includes workshop formats in Spanish and English.Is a complete source-book for teaches and principals that provides materials for conducting workshops with parents in areas of writing, reading, self-esteem, and community-building.Supports your efforts with a detailed description of what the workshop approach is and how itfunctions.

"The first time Sonora saw the farm, it was dusk, and there were horses running in the paddocks. It did not seem like the kind of place where a young girl of fifteen could saddle up a horse for an afternoon ride, and never come back…" Joelle Chauncey did not disappear without a trace — she left blood, and a discarded riding boot. Cincinnati police detective Sonora Blair, a single parent herself, has a feeling this child is not coming back. Tracks from a horse trailer indicate both Joelle and the mare she was riding were taken together. Who was the target–the girl, or the horse? Nobody saw a thing. The farm owner, Donna Delaney, was out. The uncomfortably handsome veterinarian from the farm next door heard nothing. The girl’s father, a single parent, was at work. Joelle’s disappearance is only the beginning … and after a grisly mutilation at the barn, no one is getting involved. But crime talks, and Sonora is led by an eerie and unsettling presence, a killer wrapped in layers of internal conflict, a killer who will follow a bizarre path of good and evil, and dark compulsion. "No Good Deed" is the story of a child’s brutal abduction . . . a lover’s betrayal . . . and a good cop’s journey into the darkness.

The Good Father


$3.95


An intense, psychological novel about one doctor’s suspense-filled quest to unlock the mind of a suspected political assassin: his twenty-year old son. As the Chief of Rheumatology at Columbia Presbyterian, Dr. Paul Allen’s specialty is diagnosing patients with conflicting symptoms, patients other doctors have given up on. He lives a contented life in Westport with his second wife and their twin sons–hard won after a failed marriage earlier in his career that produced a son named Daniel. In the harrowing opening scene of this provocative and affecting novel, Dr. Allen is home with his family when a televised news report announces that the Democratic candidate for president has been shot at a rally, and Daniel is caught on video as the assassin. Daniel Allen has always been a good kid–a decent student, popular–but, as a child of divorce, used to shuttling back and forth between parents, he is also something of a drifter. Which may be why, at the age of nineteen, he quietly drops out of Vassar and begins an aimless journey across the United States, during which he sheds his former skin and eventually even changes his name to Carter Allen Cash. Told alternately from the point of view of the guilt-ridden, determined father and his meandering, ruminative son, "The Good Father" is a powerfully emotional page-turner that keeps one guessing until the very end. This is an absorbing and honest novel about the responsibilities–and limitations–of being a parent and our capacity to provide our children with unconditional love in the face of an unthinkable situation.

Finding the time and energy to maintain a healthy diet and exercise program is a challenge for any parent-but it can be a matter of life and death for parents with diabetes. Diabetes in pregnancy, if poorly controlled, can increase the risk of miscarriage, birth defects, and prematurity. Mood swings and personality changes during a parent’s spells of low blood sugar can frighten young children. And even on good days, it can be difficult for a parent to remember to check their glucose levels in the haste of getting the kids off to school. From the psychological to the medical to the purely practical, Kathryn Gregorio Palmer guides parents with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes through the ups and downs of staying healthy while raising a family. Helpful for adoptive and stepparents as well as moms and dads, the book answers questions such as: – What are the risks of being pregnant with diabetes? – Will I have the energy to handle a rambunctious child? – Where can I hide my juice boxes so the kids don’t accidentally drink them all? A mother of two, Palmer blends her own experience with expert advice and tips from other parents to create a compassionate and useful handbook that parents with diabetes will find indispensable.

"Taking Care Of Mom: What I Learned That May Help You Help Your Aging Parent" is F. N. Rosenstock’s story of how her mother was abused in a nursing home, misdiagnosed by medical practitioners, and prescribed wrong medications, all of which caused immediate and long-term deterioration in her mother’s physical, emotional, and mental health.

When children enter your life, one thing immediately comes to mind: things would probably go much more smoothly if they came with an owner’s manual. And for those who want their children to follow God and live a godly life, some extra help might be nice to help counter the negative influences children will face every day. Author Jessie Adams can help.

"I wish I had the Lord Jesus Christ, the church and this book twenty-two years ago when I started raising my children" Elizabeth Arant, Educational Media Specialist "The familiar saying of ‘Home is where the heart is’ is more than a good proverb. It reveals that the home is a place where God has called parents to raise Godly children. Upon reading The Guide for the Spiritual Development of Children by Jessie Adams, the principles he hits upon lead right to the heart of the home of how parents can pass the test of being and becoming Godly examples to their children by being the primary catalyst to their spiritual development. The Biblical principles which are given in this book can encourage, exhort, and equip any parent in training up Godly children who will make an eternal impact in the lives of their own children in the future.

Because I Said So: And Other Tales from a Less-Than-Perfect Parent


$3.95


Yes, there are times when it’s appropriate to reason with your child, to patiently and eloquently explain why he or she needs to do as you ask. You might present convincing arguments like "Because it makes you strong"; "Because it will keep you safe"; "Because it’s good for you"; "Because it’s bad for you." But there are times when the only thing that really makes sense is . . . ""Because I said so " " This book is a hilarious, honest romp through motherhood–the joys, the sleeplessness, the frazzled days, the unending carpooling, the in-house refereeing, the dieting (yeah, right), the worrying–and did we say, the joy? Here’s what some of that joy looks like–with excerpts straight from the book: – I tried to do the "Buns of Steel "video, but quickly realized that it wasn’t intended for people who have buns of pudding. – I felt like my head might explode. I kind of hoped it would so I could take a nice, peaceful ambulance ride out of there. – I was a little at a loss. I mean, those parenting books don’t tell you how to break up a fight over an imaginary friend. – Moms aren’t allowed to get sick more than one day a year. Single moms aren’t allowed to get sick ever. – Before you have children you can’t imagine yourself saying things like "Don’t put chocolate milk in your pants," "Take the hot dog out of your nose," or ""Because I said so " " If you’re a mom-to-be or a mom in the trenches, you’ll love knowing that you’re not the only one out there who sometimes just figures it out as you go along–and sometimes can’t figure it out at all. But in the end, Dawn has these words of encouragement just for you: "Enjoy this time. Even when they make you crazy, these are the best days of your life." And they really are, aren’t they?
