Abstract
Every parent wants the same thing: for their child to enjoy a long and fulfilling life. But what happens when things don't go according to plan? What happens when parents have to become advocates for their child's healthcare needs? Who decides what is in a child's 'best interests'?
Stephanie Nimmo faced these questions first-hand when her daughter, Daisy, was diagnosed with a life-limiting condition as a baby. Seen through the lens of Stephanie's own experiences, this sensitive book delves into the complex world of medical ethics and pediatric palliative care. From recognizing tipping points to the importance of building relationships with palliative care teams well before crisis, this book explores how medical professionals can better support families throughout their child's care.
Interviews with clinicians and snapshots from the lives of patients' families provide insight into the realities of life on both sides of the hospital bed. Compassionate explanations of the conflicting pressures in the hospital system foster understanding and help medical professionals and families work together.

Abstract
Young children learn that everybody cries, how crying can help them, and ways they can cope with challenging feelings.
"You cry when you're sad or mad. Crying gets the hurt out." Tears Are Not Forever reassures children that everybody cries and gives them space to cry and experience their "down" feelings.
Sadness and disappointment are common, recurring emotions that children can learn to understand, handle, and grow from. With vivid illustrations and straightforward suggestions, Tears Are Not Forever provides practical advice for coping with these challenging feelings. "Remember, tears are not forever. In a little while, you'll feel better."
A section for adults reinforces the book's message that crying is a natural, normal response to strong feelings and includes tips and activities to help children express and handle their feelings.

Abstract
What does it mean to be nourished?
Nothing could be more basic than food. However, food is only one part of the concept of nourishment, but it has consumed our focus and eclipsed something far more critical for thriving - connection. We have lost sight of the fact that feeding our families is about human relationship and emotional well-being.
In Nourished, developmental and relational clinical counsellor Dr. Deborah MacNamara shows us how feeding is part of the caretaking relationship and cannot be separated from it. Informed by attachment science, developmental psychology, neuroscience, and research on human emotion, Nourished reframes our approach to providing for our kids and helps us hit the reset button on our relationship with food. After reading this seminal work, it will be impossible to ever view food as just plain food again.
As parents we need our kids to be receptive to what we offer but the road to the stomach must go through the heart. As relational and emotional creatures, our deepest hunger is one that food by itself cannot fill. In this book, Dr. MacNamara gives us the keys to transform the everyday act of feeding our children (and other loved ones) into a most fulfilling and nourishing dance of attachment. Based on developmental and relational science, qualitative research with families, counselling parents, and her own experience as a mother, in Nourished, MacNamara combines storytelling with science and puts food in its rightful place.

Abstract
What's happening around us influences our thoughts, feelings, and responses. Social Situation Mapping (formerly Social Behavior Mapping), a core teaching framework within the Social Thinking Methodology, uses visual templates to encourage learners to engage social observation for figuring out what to do and say (or not do and say) based on a particular situation: where we are, who is present, and what is happening. The maps also outline a fundamental teaching framework we call the Social Emotional Chain Reaction, which shows how we all impact one another when sharing space. The maps are meant to be taught from the perspective of the student or client to provide options for what to do or say in common situations. We encourage educators, therapists, and parents to jointly generate unique maps alongside the student or client based on their individual goals.
Revised, retitled, and updated with our most current teaching, Social Situation Mapping includes:
- 80+ completed Social Situation Maps (SSMs) to explore 40+ practical everyday situations that happen at school, home, and in the community.
- Maps with blank spaces for students to add their own ideas and observations.
- Maps with options to honor neurodivergent choices or strategies. Some options are also inclusive of learning differences and/or disabilities.
- One blank map template that can be photocopied and used again and again. The completed maps within this book can also be used as guideposts as learners generate their own maps and figure out a path through the lens of their social goals or desires.
- A description of the Social Emotional Chain Reaction (SECR), the foundational concept taught in Social Situation Mapping.
- The 10-Step Visual Fidelity and Teaching Guide.

You might think cities are the last place to find nature. But nature is actually right outside your door - you just need to know where to look. From the roofs of apartments to parking lots, cities are bursting with plants and animals.
In this fascinating and interactive guide, kids will learn about how birds build their nests on bridges, where salamanders and toads hide, and how plants push through sidewalk cracks. Alongside these awe-inspiring facts, Peter shares engaging, science-based activities, including how to:
- Identify animal sounds
- Raise a slime mold
- Make your own compass
- Collect plants to start your own herbarium
- See shooting stars
- And more
Peter also provides information on what animals thrive in cities and which could use our help, as well as tips for staying safe and having fun while embarking on a nature adventure. Perfect for outdoor education, What?s Wild Outside Your Door? equips kids in urban and suburban environments with the knowledge to engage with the natural world around them, and the confidence to go explore.

A book that encourages children to go and play outside and discover what nature has to offer. Leave the house and roam into the nature: It is a fascinating place, waiting to be conquered by little ones with curious minds. Whether in the garden, park, or a nearby forest, a closer look at nature will draw out budding architects, their first constructions built from stones, branches, and leaves; a thorough investigation of trees will reveal all kinds of insects; and listening to the animals around will teach their sounds. Let?s Play Outdoors is for a new generation of environmentally conscious children, showing them how to interact with their surroundings in a meaningful way. The activities suggested inspire independent learning about animals, plants, and the weather, as well as how to look after the world.

Abstract
With more than 150,000 copies sold, this fully revised and updated edition of the classic self-help guide for parents offers cutting-edge, proven-effective techniques for helping your child overcome anxiety and thrive.
Most children are afraid of the dark. Some fear monsters under the bed. But at least ten percent of children have excessive fears and worries―phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder―that can hold them back and keep them from fully enjoying childhood. If your child suffers from any of these forms of anxiety, this book offers new, practical, and evidence-based proven tools that can help.
Now in its third edition, Helping Your Anxious Child has been expanded and updated to include the latest research and techniques for managing child anxiety, and includes new information on helping very young children and adolescents; as well as anxiety in children with behavioral problems, learning difficulties, or medical conditions. The book offers proven-effective skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and mindfulness and relaxation techniques to aid you in helping your child overcome intense fears and worries. You'll also find out how to relieve your child's anxious feelings while parenting with compassion.
Parents will learn:
How to help your child practice ?detective thinking? to recognize irrational worries
What to do when your child becomes frightened
How to expose your child gently and gradually to challenging situations
How to help your child learn important social skills
Also included are links to a free downloadable workbook for parents, and an activity book for kids. The kid-friendly, illustrated activity book will help your child take an active role in learning to manage their anxiety, as they learn and practice the skills outlined in Helping Your Anxious Child.

Abstract
In The Little Frog Awakes, Eline Snel offers parents of young children advice and tools for responding mindfully and effectively in the moment. These skills help us regain trust in ourselves and in the integral wholeness of our kids. And when we make mindfulness practice a part of daily life, it gives our children a powerful message on how to recognize, name, and deal with emotions and situations.
This practical guide will help you to:
*connect with and respond mindfully to your own feelings as they arise
*cultivate compassion for yourself as a parent or caregiver through meditations and breathing practices
*encourage serenity, self-confidence, and emotional regulation in your children, through stories and activities
*strengthen your bond with your kids and help all of you manage stress
*be more fully present with your children, and more able to give them your undivided attention
*embrace imperfection and focus on the things that really matter
*and more
The book and the accompanying audio include activities, practices, and stories for both you and for your toddler that cultivate mindful moments and action, and self-compassion.
