HearthSong All Grown Up and No Place to Go: Teenagers in Crisis Gifts $15-$25


BRAND: HearthSong
SKU_NUMBER: 728194
SALE_PRICE: $17.5  Regular Price: $17.5

Once our society set aside time for adolescents to grow from children to adults, to become accustomed to their expanding bodies and minds. Now the markers that defined passage-differences in dress, behavior, and responsibilities-have vanished. The institutions that guarded adolescence, such as family and schools, now expect "young adults" to deal with adult issues. Those trends leave teens no time to be teens. All Grown Up and No Place to Go spotlights the pressures on teenagers to grow up quickly. The resulting problems range from common alienation to self-destructive behavior. Quoting teenagers themselves, Elkind shows why adolescence is a time of "thinking in a new key," and how young people need this time to get used to the social and emotional changes their new thinking brings. Many of his ideas, such as the "imaginary audience" that makes teens so self-conscious, have become seminal in adolescent psychology. Already there are more than 175,000 copies of All Grown Up and No Place to Go in print. In this thoroughly revised edition, Elkind also explores the "post-modern family" in which teenagers are growing up. He helps parents and those who work with youth and understand teens in crucial ways, because the root of so many adolescent frictions is the gap between what teenagers need and what our culture provides. Paperback: 304 pages Publisher: Da Capo Press; revised edition (January 1998) Size9" x 6

HearthSong Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul Paperback


BRAND: HearthSong
SKU_NUMBER: 728196
SALE_PRICE: $17  Regular Price: $17

From a leading expert, a groundbreaking book on the science of play, and its essential role in fueling our happiness and intelligence throughout our lives. We've all seen the happiness on the face of a child while playing in the school yard. Or the blissful abandon of a golden retriever racing across a lawn. This is the joy of play. By definition, play is purposeless, all-consuming, and fun. But as Dr. Stuart Brown illustrates, play is anything but trivial. It is a biological drive as integral to our health as sleep or nutrition. We are designed by nature to flourish through play. Dr. Brown has spent his career conducting more than six thousand "play histories" of humans from all walks of life. He draws on his clinical research and observations of animals, as well as advances in neuroscience and psychology, to explore the power of play in our everyday world. In this book, Dr. Brown explains: How parents can nurture their child's development through play How schools can use play effectively to motivate students, and more! About the author: Stuart Brown, M.D, is a medical doctor, psychiatrist, clinical researcher, and the founder of the National Institute for Play. The producer of a three-part PBS series, The Promise of Play, he has also appeared on NPR and his research was featured in a cover story in The New York Times Magazine. He lives in Carmel Valley, California, and works out of his office treehouse. Paperback: 240 pages Publisher: Penguin Group (2010) Size 8-1/2" x 6

HearthSong The Hurried Child: 25th Anniversary Edition Gifts $15-$25


BRAND: HearthSong
SKU_NUMBER: 728192
SALE_PRICE: $16.95  Regular Price: $16.95

With the first edition of The Hurried Child, David Elkind emerged as the voice of parenting reason, calling attention to the crippling effects of hurrying children through life. He showed that by blurring the boundaries of what is age-appropriate, by expecting, or imposing, too much too soon, we force our kids to grow up too fast, to mimic adult sophistication while secretly yearning for innocence. In the more than two decades since this book first appeared, new generations of parents have inadvertently stepped up the assault on childhood, in the media, in schools, and at home. In the third edition of this classic (2001), Dr. Elkind provided a detailed, up-to-the-minute look at the Internet, classroom culture, school violence, movies, television, and a growing societal incivility to show parents and teachers where hurrying occurs and why. And as before, he offered parents and teachers insight, advice, and hope for encouraging healthy development while protecting the joy and freedom of childhood. In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the book, Dr. Elkind delivers important new commentary to put a quarter century of trends and change into perspective for parents today.
