A practical roadmap for foster and adoptive families Caring for children is deeply important to the heart of God, and adoption and foster care are important callings that connect to God’s heart for children and families. But this road isn’t always easy. It’s important that foster and adoptive parents prepare to address their children’s history of trauma, separation, and disrupted placements, which can lead to mental health, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. It is also important to understand how this journey shapes and influences our children. We cannot ignore the deep feelings and questions that children experience as they try to understand their story. How can we help them navigate their identity, and sit with them in the unknowns of their story or the grief and loss that comes up? ​ Drawing on the latest science and research on trauma, attachment, sensory processing difficulties, cultural competence, and grief and loss, authors Josh and Jenn Hook provide a trauma-informed approach to help adoptive and foster families—and the church called to care for the vulnerable in our midst—to help their children heal, grow, and thrive.

Every parent's goal is to raise happy, healthy children who can thrive and flourish whatever the challenges faced along the way. In The Thriving Family, leading psychologist David Coleman shares his unique vision to show us how. Outlining his core principles of 'kind but firm' parenting, he reveals how powerful tools such as empathy, positive reinforcement and setting successful boundaries can lead to a loving, supportive and calm home environment that allows every member to thrive. Drawing from his vast experience working with families, he looks at new ways to approach common issues, including adapting to parenthood; dealing with bullying, drugs and alcohol; creating healthy social networks online and in real life; dealing with separation and loss; enhancing sibling harmony and reducing rivalry; thriving when your children move on. Whatever the situation or challenge, The Thriving Family empowers parents to create the best future for their children, and encourages children to step into it with joy and confidence.

"Fragile families"—unmarried parents who struggle emotionally and financially—are one of the primary targets of the Healthy Marriage Initiative, a federal policy that has funded marriage education programs in nearly every state. These programs, which encourage marriage by teaching relationship skills, are predicated on the hope that married couples can provide a more emotionally and financially stable home for their children. Healthy marriage policy promotes a pro-marriage culture in which two-parent married families are considered the healthiest. It also assumes that marriage can be a socioeconomic survival mechanism for low-income families, and an engine of upward mobility. Through interviews with couples and her own observations and participation in marriage education courses, Jennifer M. Randles challenges these assumptions and critically examines the effects of such classes on participants. She takes the reader inside healthy marriage classrooms to reveal how their curricula are reflections of broader issues of culture, gender, governance, and social inequality. In analyzing the implementation of healthy marriage policy, Randles questions whether it should target individual behavior or the social and economic context of that behavior. The most valuable approach, she concludes, will not be grounded in notions of middle-class marriage culture. Instead, it will reflect the fundamental premise that love and commitment thrive most within the context of social and economic opportunity.

Research and practice shows that many vulnerable children and families face more than one challenge and require more than one intervention. However our service system has evolved historically to deal with one thing at a time or to provide services from multiple sources. This lack of integration can have a devastating effect on some families where key information or warning signs are missed. Coronial and judicial inquiries constantly stress the negative impact of a 'siloed' approach to service ...

The High Definition Family Book PDF/Epub Download

The High Definition Family isn't about being an ideal family, a perfect family, or even a good family, but about your family as you are now, on a journey with God reaching your highest potential. God wants you and your family to become all that it is created on Earth to do and be. The character of your family members will be continually shaped more like Jesus', you will contribute to others becoming more like Jesus, and donate love to a world that is hungry and thirsty for this kind of love. Your family's story will become part of God's story for the world. If you don't know what makes your family unique then you have no defined basis for making decisions and you become defined by the history of your own messy family and the messy world you live in. And that can be, well, messy. Because you and your family are unique, your journey with God is unique. Being on a high definition journey together, you'll have the tools you need to tune in your family's own unique vision and live it out. You'll have the tools you need to enjoy being together as a family, and to master household chores in such a way as to encourage leadership and teamwork as a family. You'll achieve greater freedom and clarity, and draw closer to each other, God, and those whom you encounter on your journey. For those of you with children, you'll find an easier and clearer parenting task. You will cultivate leadership in all family members, create an energized family culture, and realize family dreams. "Please hurry up and get the book done!" - D.D. Sayer Strauch serves as a pastor, writer, and speaker and lives in Vancouver, Washington, with his wife and three children.

The Free Market Family Book PDF/Epub Download

US families have been pushed to the wall. At the bottom of the economic ladder, poor and working-class adults aren't forming stable relationships and can't give their kids the start they need because of low wages and uncertain job prospects. Toward the top, professional parents' lives have become a grinding slog of long hours of paid work. Meanwhile their kids are overstressed by pressure to succeed and get into good colleges. In this provocative book, Maxine Eichner argues that these very different struggles might seem unconnected, but they share the same root cause: the increasingly large toll that economic inequality and insecurity are taking on families. It's government rather than families that's to blame, Eichner persuasively contends. Since the 1970s, politicians have sold families out to the wrongheaded notion that the free market alone best supports them. In five decades of "free-market family policy," they've scrapped government programs and gutted market regulations that had helped families thrive. The consequence is the steady drumbeat of bad news we hear about our country today: the opioid epidemic, skyrocketing suicide and mental illness rates, "deaths of despair," and mediocre student achievement scores. Meanwhile, politicians just keep telling families to work a little harder. The Free-Market Family documents US families' impossible plight, showing how much worse they fare than families in other countries. It then demonstrates how politicians' free-market illusions steered our nation wildly off course. Finally, it shows how, using commonsense measures, we can restructure the economy to work for families, rather than the reverse. Doing so would invest in our children's futures, increase our wellbeing, reknit our social fabric, and allow our country to reclaim the American Dream.

Many successful parents have spent their lives creating a financial bonanza for themselves, as well as their children and grandchildren. What they didn’t plan for are the unintended consequences that increased wealth brings. These include issues like entitlement and loss of work ethic among the rising generation, and increased potential for upsets, disputes, and strained relationships that can often progress to separation and even lawsuits. Richard M. Del Monte, CFP®, CWC, wealth consultant and author of ENDLESS INHERITANCE: Moving from Feuding to Flourishing in Your Affluent Family aims to help affluent families prepare for and prevent the destructive forces that wealth brings, and help them resolve all their conflicts, prepare the heirs to handle the wealth they will inherit, and create a scenario in which money becomes a tool to unleash and achieve the family’s greatest potential, now and in future generations. Seventy percent of affluent families fail at passing on wealth through the second generation, meaning the kids either squander all the money or wind up fighting with or suing each other. Written as a guide, ENDLESS INHERITANCE: Moving from Feuding to Flourishing in Your Affluent Family, outlines how to prepare the rising generation of a wealthy family—not just to inherit worldly goods, but to be engaged and contributing members of the family, to appreciate their shared history, resolve conflicts quickly before they escalate, and to be able to handle the responsibilities and opportunities that come with wealth. As a wealth consultant, asset manager, and trained specialist in family dynamics, Richard M. Del Monte outlines a plan of action supported by resources and exercises to empower parents and children alike to start the often difficult conversations needed to overcome poor relationships, lack of trust, and entitlement. The book addresses financial planning aspects wealthy families should consider, as well as the family’s interpersonal relationships and training that need to be addressed to ensure their wealth and family harmony last for generations.

Sacrificing Families Book PDF/Epub Download

Widening global inequalities make it difficult for parents in developing nations to provide for their children, and both mothers and fathers often find that migration in search of higher wages is their only hope. Their dreams are straightforward: with more money, they can improve their children's lives. But the reality of their experiences is often harsh, and structural barriers—particularly those rooted in immigration policies and gender inequities—prevent many from reaching their economic goals. Sacrificing Families offers a first-hand look at Salvadoran transnational families, how the parents fare in the United States, and the experiences of the children back home. It captures the tragedy of these families' daily living arrangements, but also delves deeper to expose the structural context that creates and sustains patterns of inequality in their well-being. What prevents these parents from migrating with their children? What are these families' experiences with long-term separation? And why do some ultimately fare better than others? As free trade agreements expand and nation-states open doors widely for products and profits while closing them tightly for refugees and migrants, these transnational families are not only becoming more common, but they are living through lengthier separations. Leisy Abrego gives voice to these immigrants and their families and documents the inequalities across their experiences.

Embracing the Journey Book PDF/Epub Download

A sympathetic, compassionate, and inspiring guide for parents—from the founders of one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Greg and Lynn McDonald had never interacted with members of the LGBTQ community until they discovered that their son was gay. Without resources or support, they had no idea how to come to terms with this discovery. At first they tried to “fix” him, to no avail. But even in the earliest days of their journey, the McDonalds clung to two absolutes: they would love God, and they would love their son. “An essential resource for Christian parents of LGBTQ kids,” (Matthew Vines, Executive Director of The Reformation Project) this book follows the McDonald family’s journey over the next twenty years, from a place of grief to a place of gratitude and acceptance that led the McDonalds to start one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Based on their experience from counseling and coaching hundreds of struggling Christian parents, they offer tools for understanding your own emotional patterns and spiritual challenges. They also help you experience a deeper relationship with God while handling difficult or unexpected situations that are out of your control. You will discover tested principles, patterns, and spiritual lessons that can change the way we all see our families, and help Christians at large think through Christ-like ways to respond to the LGBTQ community. Written in an unvarnished, honest, reassuring, and relatable voice, this is a practical guide for parents and a roadmap to learning to love God, the people He created, and the church, even when they seem to be at odds.

We all know what families look like when they’re broken. But how were they meant to look? Authors Glenn Stanton and Leon Wirth rediscover the Creator’s majestic plan behind this essential, endangered institution—and bring it down to earth with practical application for every spouse and parent. This book is an extension of Focus on the Family’s much-anticipated The Family Project, a 12-week church and small group series that will change the way moms, dads, wives, and husbands see themselves—and help them build healthy households from the best blueprint of all. While following the topic outline of The Family Project curriculum, this book stands alone and delves into the subject areas more deeply. It provides a solid exploration of God’s design and the transformative purpose of biblical families, and also offers down-to-earth helps for living out God’s design in your own family, along with inspiration for helping others do the same.

Increasingly, critics accused practitioners of hiding hubris behind their purported humanity and questioned whether an increasingly professional scientific community could retain its grip on the meaning of compassion. This volume presents a set of responses to this criticism and others, showing the extent to which the lived-experience of scientific practice became a justification in and of itself for the expression of social, political and cultural authority. Bare knowledge, as it was presented, came with an enormous social valuation. These sources show how that authority changed and grew over time.

Non-scientists often perceive science as a dry, boring vocation pursued by dry, boring people. Contrary to popular perception, science has actually been the product of fascinating people seeking to explain the world around them. From Galileo’s difficulties with the Inquisition, to the quirkiness of Newton, to the iconic figure that was Einstein, this innovative volume chronicles the history of science using extensive passages from the works of the scientists themselves. Who better to appeal to our common sense concerning the truth of a sun-centered universe than Copernicus himself? Kepler expresses in his own words the way in which he awoke to the revelation of elliptical orbits, and Darwin shares his slowly evolving ideas leading to the theory of natural selection. Part biography, part history, this work reveals the personalities behind the world’s most significant scientific discoveries, providing an interesting new perspective on the human endeavor we call science. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.
