How to help—and how not to hinder—your teenage daughter’s healthy development as she prepares to step into her own circle of power. Today’s teen girls face pressures such as an increase in mental health concerns, mounting demands to be both beautiful and successful, and addiction to social media and the approval of others, all of which can result in a damaging decline in personal satisfaction and self-esteem. Rooted, Resilient, and Ready explores how today's teen girl assembles her identity through the interweaving of genetics, family, and friends, and the masks she may feel she needs to wear to be accepted, such as the super girl, the invisible girl, or the cool girl. The book counters the negative cultural messages and potential for disordered eating that affect a teen's body image and guides parents through Lindsay Sealey's three-part approach to a happier, healthier teen: food, fitness, fun. Balancing research with practical advice and interviews, Sealey encourages parents to nurture the process of their teen’s development and guide their teen girls even though they may often feel out of step with them. Journeying with teen girls from lost and let-down to fierce and fearless, Rooted, Resilient, and Ready gives parents the tools to prepare their daughters to step into their power and potential, choosing progress over perfection, security over uncertainty, happiness over self-pity, and authenticity over conformity.

REVIEW: . . . Students of educational theory and practice will enjoy-and learn from-this brief but enlightening and readable book. Recommended for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and practitioners. . . - September 98 CHOICE The four teachers in this study teach diverse subjects in a variety of settings. Although definitions of moral education are shaped by their backgrounds, their institutions, their perceptions of their students' needs, and their disciplines, all of the teachers consider moral education to be central to their work. For all four, the moral prototype serves as an appeal to the students' imagination, an opportunity to build connectedness and, most important, an invitation to young people to transcend themselves.

You have a great idea, now what? That first mile—where an innovation moves from an idea on paper to the market—is often plagued by failure. In fact, less than one percent of ideas launched by big companies end up having real impact. The ideas aren’t the problem. It’s the process. The First Mile focuses on the critical moment when an innovator moves from planning to reality. It is a perilous place where hidden traps snare entrepreneurs and roadblocks slow innovators inside large companies. In this practical and enlightening manual, strategic adviser Scott Anthony equips innovators with new tools, questions, and examples to speed through this crucial early stage of innovation. You’ll learn: • How to evaluate your idea’s strengths and weaknesses using the “DEFT” process—Document, Evaluate, Focus, and Test • Fourteen recipes from an “experiment cookbook” to gain confidence in your idea or business • Why “spinouts,” “wrong turns,” and other challenges commonly trip up innovation—and the practical strategies you can use to avoid them • Why innovators need to seek chaos in an age of constant change—and other essential leadership skills Drawing on his decade of experience as an innovation adviser and investor, Anthony describes hard-won lessons from disruptive start-ups and global giants alike. The First Mile will give you the knowledge and confidence to travel this perilous—but ultimately promising—terrain. The first mile can be a scary place, but you don’t have to traverse it alone. This book can help.

As the wife of an alcoholic, author Harmony Rose searched for some validity to her emotions: she didn’t want to feel crazy anymore or continue to carry the shame and blame that came with her husband’s alcoholism. In Married under the Influence, she shares her story of living year after year with a husband who is an alcoholic. With excerpts from her journal entries, Rose tells how all she ever wanted was to be loved by the man she had given her heart to, but she had no idea how to reach him, even briefly contemplating suicide. Then, she had a spiritual awakening that changed their lives forever. She tells the details of her journey to not only help her understand and heal, but to help others. Including interviews with recovering alcoholics and with other wives whose husbands are alcoholics, Married under the Influence offers stories of strength, love, and hope. It shows how forgiveness can free you from your own emotional prison and how loving unconditionally doesn’t have to mean losing yourself.
