Learning to talk is probably the greatest milestone in a child's development: a deeply moving and often hilarious experience for all parents. In this charming and informative book, Britain's leading expert on the English language talks you through every stage in your child's language development. Over thirty years after its original publication, this new and updated edition of Listen to your Child shows us that while the world our children are growing up in may have changed, one thing has not: parents still need to listen. Gathering decades of research from psychologists and linguists, Professor Crystal shows how the more we know about language acquisition - from 'cooking' and 'babbling' to melodic 'scribble talk' and simple words and then to incessant chatter - the more there is to delight in. From birth to the early school years, Listen to your Child provides a painless introduction to the study of child language acquisition as well as invaluable advice for parents.

Our schools are failing your kids. In Listen to Your Kids, author and veteran teacher Thomas Harvey explains the why and tells you what you can to do help solve this crisis. A personal account from the front lines of education’s battlefield—the classroom—Listen to Your Kids provides a broad discussion of secondary education and invites parents, teachers, and administrators to open an honest and thought-provoking dialogue about educational reform. Harvey demonstrates how school reform should not be about money or testing but rather about nourishing each student’s soul. Sharing powerful personal approaches to connecting with teenagers, he imparts simple strategies for transforming indifferent, angry, and struggling students into optimistic and successful young adults. Filled with anecdotes and letters from students, Listen to Your Kids presents a how-to manual for creating emotionally rich and respectful relationships that are powerful antidotes to the apathy felt by so many students toward school. It provides ample evidence to show that an emotionally healthy educational environment produces academically healthier kids.

A Powerful Approach to Bringing God's Grace to Kids Did you know that the way we deal (or don't deal) with our kids' misbehavior shapes their beliefs about themselves, the world, and God? Therefore it's vital to connect with their hearts--not just their minds--amid the daily behavior battles. With warmth and grace, Jim and Lynne Jackson, founders of Connected Families, offer four tried-and-true keys to handling any behavioral issues with love, truth, and authority. You will learn practical ways to communicate messages of grace and truth, how to discipline in a way that motivates your child, and how to keep your relationship strong, not antagonistic. Discipline is more than just a short-term attempt to modify your child's actions--it's a long-term investment to help them build faith, wisdom, and character for life. When you discover a better path to discipline, you'll find a more well-behaved--and well-believed--kid.
