Farrah Abraham is Writing a Christian Parenting Book
News from Celebuzz:

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham wants to give you advice. Parenting advice. Christian Parenting Advice. No, I don’t know exactly what that means either. It also seems rich coming from a porn star/exotic literature writer, but let’s hear what the reality star and mom has to say in her own words.

Abraham, 22, told In Touch magazine that “faith is a big part of my life. I’m not perfect that’s just life. There really is no perfect Christian. I go to church as often as possible and I have great Christian friends — and those aren’t the ones who say they’re Christian and then act like other …”

Alicia Silverstone’s new book sparks controversy

Alicia Silverstone’s new book sparks controversy
News from New York Daily News:

Trisha Leeper/WireImage Alicia Silverstone’s new book has sparked outrage over the actress’ approach to parenting, which she labels a ‘kind’ method. Silverstone has long been an advocate for vegan eating and eco-friendly living.

Alicia Silverstone has penned another book on how to live the ‘kind’ life. But her advice — compiled in a self-helper called “The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning” — is being slammed as a compilation of cluelessness.

In her guidebook, Silverstone, 37, suggests things like postpartum depression is “less common” among women who adopt a vegan or plant-based diet.

The “Clueless” actress also suggests veganism can cure fertility problems, illnesses such as lupus and…………… continues on New York Daily News

Book explains why parenting is ‘all joy,’ ‘no fun’

Book explains why parenting is ‘all joy,’ ‘no fun’
News from San Francisco Chronicle:

“All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood” (Ecco), by Jennifer Senior

Parenting is a life-changing, meaning-infusing, deeply profound experience. It is also, day by day, a huge drag.

“All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood” by Jennifer Senior seeks to explain this contradiction — and mostly succeeds.

In parenting, where is the line between freedom and neglect?
News from Deseret News:

How one parents — with an approach that is authoritarian, authoritative or permissive — stops being a matter of personal style when it becomes a legal issue.

That happened recently in the United Kingdom when a British High Court ruled that a mother’s “permissive” parenting style may be more neglectful than it is simply casual and hands-off.

The ruling has raised questions around the world about parenting styles and appropriate boundaries.

“A mother who let her sons play computer games for hours on end and was more like their ‘friend’ than a parent has had them removed from her care,” wrote The Telegraph’s John Bingham.

He said that the woman, 41, left her tween and teen, 11 and 14, to amuse themselves for “extended periods while she chatted on the telephone, used her iPad or took naps.”

The boys reportedly didn’t have regular bedtimes, were often late to school and generally lacked boundaries. Judge Laura Harris gave custody to the boys’ father, 43, saying that their mother had “significantly failed” to parent them correctly.

The judge said in her ruling, “I am satisfied that there is a failure to provide pr…………… continues on Deseret News

Farrah Abraham’s Parenting Book Sounds Like a Joke … But It Isn’t
News from The Stir:

Are you ready for a good laugh? Hold onto your bellies, reality TV fans, because this one is going to be a gutbuster! Teen Mom and porn star Farrah Abraham announced on Couples Therapy that she is writing … a Christian parenting book!

Will hold as you clean whatever was in your mouth off your computer screen … OK, done? So according to Farrah, this book is actually part of a “trilogy” that also includes an erotic sex novel.

Confused?

So was Couples Therapy co-star Sada Bettencourt who said those two topics in the same sentence actually “violate the law of physics!”

But let’s be honest: 50 Shades knock-off in the works or not, I’m not seeing a huge market for a parenting book written by Farrah Abraham.

This is the mom who left her baby in the bath and walked out of the room on national television! This is the mom who placed a sleeping infant in the hallway of an apartment complex, then walked inside and shut the door!

Not to mention this is the mom whose 4-year-old still uses a pacifer on the regular, who

‘RIE Parenting’: The Latest Kooky Trend Among Hollywood Stars
News from The Stir:

Forget attachment parenting, helicopter parenting, natural parenting, and everything in between — because the celeb-types have a brand new style of raising kids that’s apparently all the rage.

It’s called “RIE Parenting,” which is an acronym for Resources for Infant Educarers. It’s pronounced “wry,” and the basic gyst of it is treating babies like individuals … not like tiny little bundles of joy. Why on earth should kids be treated like kids? (That just isn’t right.)

Some of RIE’s famous fans include Helen Hunt, Tobey Maguire, Penelope Cruz, and Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy, to name a few.

And apparently this style of parenting is oh so appealing to A-listers because duh — they’re raising their babies without “disrespecting” them.

Ok, so I know this probably sounds a little confusing — so let me provide you with a few examples of what RIE parents simply do not allow.

Parenting book validates crappiest mom moments

Parenting book validates crappiest mom moments
News from TheChronicleHerald.ca:

Alicia Ybarbo and Mary Ann Zoellner, two of four authors of Sh*tty Mom, pose with their book in New York. (YFAT REISS GENDELL / AP)

NEW YORK — One mom lured her daughter to bed — at age eight — with a trail of chocolate chips up her townhouse stairs. Another found herself on the floor of a plane screaming “Save the Jelly Bellys!” They spilled as she fed them to her preschooler to fend off in-flight earache meltdowns.

A third mom who avoids sweets and high fructose corn syrup like they were poison has her toddler begging for his “medicine candy” when it’s time to take the dreaded Tylenol.

Don’t go diving for your dog-eared parenting guides or Googling Dr. Sears on the above, but if you’re looking for a little validation of your crappiest mom moments as not such a huge deal after all, hunt down Sh*tty Mom, the unofficial companion to last year’s bestseller Go the (Bleep) to Sleep.

The latest in irreverent parenting books is part parody and part painful truth. It’s written by four very busy, often tired working moms looking to offer some overdue laughs as counterpoint to today’s parenting-to-perfection mania.

News from Huffington Post:

Parenting expert and author of “Bullied”, Carrie Goldman, recently joined me on Mondays with Marlo and we had such a great chat about everything! From her personal experiences with her child being bullied at a very young age, to her open adoption of her daughter, to her thoughts on how parents can prevent bullying in their child’s school. Through it all, Carrie had some great tips and advice for all parents and their children.

For more ideas and tips on how you can get involved in ending the bullying epidemic, check out some of Carrie’s top tips:

  • Recognize The Problem

    Unfortunately, the parents of most bullies are in denial. Prevent your child from becoming a bully by having a consistent, non-authoritarian parenting style. Listen closely to what your child says and be aware of what is going on in their everyday lives.

  • Teach Empathy

    Monitor what your kids are watching on TV. Reality-based TV teaches kids that being mean gets you what you want. Bullies see their targets as “others,” not as people, so kids should be t…………… continues on Huffington Post

News from Huffington Post:

Book Review:
Brain-Based Parenting: The Neuroscience of Caregiving for Healthy Attachment
By Daniel A. Hughes, Jonathan Baylin and Daniel J. Siegel — W. W. Norton, 2012

Brain-Based Parenting is a long way from what we read decades ago when Dr. Spock (the pediatrician, not the Star Trek star) was explaining and guiding parents in how to care for their children. The distance is, however, principally in terms of understanding how the brain works — the neurobiology underlying attachment, attunement, and good and not-so-good parenting. That is the strength of this book, and a remarkable strength it is.

Readers be warned: This book takes work. It takes careful reading, digesting complex material, and considering how we are both a product of our biology (and neurodevelopmental evolution) and how we can influence our biology. The book is as much a textbook of neurobiology as it is a parenting manual.

The opening chapters are the most brain-based, and perhaps the best. The reader will learn about key brain regions (the amygdala, hippocampus, insula, overall limbic system, and prefrontal/orbitofrontal/anteriocingulate cortices), mirror neurons, the vagus nerve, vegetative and autonomic nervous systems, and a host of neurotransmitters such as oxytocin (the attachment neurotransmi…………… continues on Huffington Post

Parenting for the Perplexed: A little preparation eases transition to kindergarten
News from Jweekly.com:

Rachel Biale, MSW, is a Berkeley-based parenting consultant who has been working with parents of very young children for more than 25 years. Send questions through her Facebook page: Parenting Counseling by Rachel Biale or via .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Our daughter starts kindergarten in a month and already shows signs of anxiety. She keeps saying, “Kindergarten will be fun, right?” and has been clingy. Can we help her get ready? Parents in Danville

Dear Parents: Now is the perfect time to start preparing for kindergarten. Some 5-year-olds, especially first-borns, find “going to kindergarten” as baffling as going to Mars. Everybody talks about it and asks them if they are excited, but they have no idea what it really is and how to get there. Many parents navigate this passage with baggage — happy or unhappy memories and the realization that your “baby” is no baby anymore, making it more fraught.

Kids who attend preschool may find the transition easy. Simply say, “Kindergarten is like preschool for older children. You do a lot of the same things: circle time, playing, learning things. You also learn to read and write.” Make sure he understands that learning to read and write takes a long time…………… continues on Jweekly.com

Hundreds of runaways descend on the Ashram and become its residents. `It`s not about the pace, it`s about the peace,` says Marathon Baba.

‘Authoritative parenting’ is best for young adults, studies say
News from Deseret News:

Wendy Heath talks with her 17 year old daughter Emily Tuesday, March 6, 2012 at home.

Scott G. Winterton, Deseret News

Ryan and Wendy Heath are raising a family in Sandy. They live with their three teenagers in a quiet neighborhood. Their oldest, 17-year-old Emily, is a junior in high school and already making plans for college. Her parents are preparing to support her financially through this transition. But if she decides to skip college and head out on her own, she knows her parents will withhold financial support as a result.

Giving their children choices is important to the Heaths. They want their teens to know they have both choices and consequences to those choices, but hope the kids feel free to be open about their emotions. This is a deviation from the way Wendy Heath was raised, which involved more rules and fewer opportunities for dialogue. That method wasn’t ideal for her, because her opinions often clashed with theirs.

“I certainly knew what their ideal was but there was never any discussion,” Wendy Heath said. “That was just how it had to be.”

Parenting book ‘Momnesia’ not a new concept, but one worth revisiting

Parenting book ‘Momnesia’ not a new concept, but one worth revisiting
News from Boston.com:

The book “Momnesia” asks mothers to consider this: What did you like to do before you got married and had kids?

It’s a simple question. But, like the character in the book, it gave me pause.

I have been a mother for five years, just a fraction of my life. But when I tried to think of ways I spent time before my kids, it took longer than it should have. After several long panicky moments, it came flooding back – the ski trips, tennis matches, scrapbooking marathons. Then I got bummed out that all three of those enjoyable tasks have happened exactly zero times since I’ve given birth. Not that my life isn’t fun, it’s just individual hobbies have taken a back burner to quality time with the kids, a career, and a (semi) clean home.

The book “Momnesia” by Lori Verni-Fogarsi, released today by Brickstone Publishing, is about being a good mother without losing yourself in the process. In “Momnesia,” we follow the mother of two school-age children through her divorce. She sheds a toxic partner, but more importantly, she sheds the emotional baggage that c…………… continues on Boston.com

Kids and Tech: Parenting Tips for the Digital Age
News from Mashable:

Parents had enough to worry about before their children could bully each other online, meet dangerous strangers without leaving the house, and switch between tasks at a rapid-fire pace. Some parents have even questioned whether their children will ever be able to concentrate.

In a world where, according to one survey, 81% of toddlers have an online presence by the time they are two, most parents are still confused about how to best manage their children’s relationship with technology.

Author Scott Steinberg attempts to answer their questions in a new series of high-tech parenting books called The Modern Parent’s Guide. The first volume, Kids and Video Games, went online as a free download this week. Internet, Web and Online Safety; Facebook and Social Networks; Smartphones and Apps; and Digital Music, Movies and Entertainment will follow within the next year.
