Why Don't Children Sit Still?
By Dort, Evelien Van
Why is my son so clumsy? Why is my daughter's handwriting so messy? My children only want to play video games: will lack of movement really hurt them?
Movement is essential in helping children develop not only motor skills but also intellectual, emotional and social skills. Children learn through 'doing' and play. But a child's journey to learn how to control their body can cause frustration in parents. How often do parents say, "Can you not just sit still?" or treat a grazed knee when children fall over their own feet?
By understanding how children develop sensory motor skills -- that is, get information through their senses and respond with their physical body -- parents can start to address and find reassurance about the issues that concern them.
In this practical and insightful book, Evelien van Dort's uses her thirty years' experience as a children's physiotherapist, and draws on Rudolf Steiner's theories of child development, to outline how children develop skills such as spatial awareness, balance, coordination and telling right from left. This book will inform and reassure any parent or educator about the impact of a child's movement on their wider learning.

The Power Source
By Roxburgh, Lauren
Celebrity trainer and goop expert Lauren Roxburgh's program that uses pelvic floor strength to release stress, strengthen the body, and treat the physical and mental origins of tension. Located at our root, all energy and strength flow up from the pelvic floor. Our pelvic floor determines how strong our core is, how we handle stress, and how much energy reaches the rest of our body. In other words, without addressing the health of our pelvic floor, we are all missing out on a powerful key component of our overall physical, emotional, and spiritual health. The Power Source will give readers a deep understanding of how to cultivate this strength in their bodies and in their lives by following a holistic, multi-sensory program that works from the pelvic floor up.
The Power Source shows how and why our pelvic floor is so important from a variety of different perspectives, ranging from purely physical body mechanics to how it impacts our nervous system to how it is the seat of all life force energy. Roxburgh demonstrates how it relates to the other areas of our body (or, as she calls them, "containers") , both physically and energetically. And, most importantly, she shares a program for how readers can align their bodies and their lives by adopting an entirely new and more powerful definition of "strength."

How to Raise Kind Kids
By Lickona, Thomas
Can you teach your child to be kind?
This vital question is taking on a new urgency as our culture grows ever more abrasive and divided.
We all want our kids to be kind. But recognizing that abstractly is not the same as knowing what to do when your son tunes you out or you catch your daughter mocking a classmate who is struggling to fit in. A world-renowned developmental psychologist, Dr. Thomas Lickona has led the character education movement in schools for 25 years and now he shares with parents the vital tools they need to create a culture of kindness at home. Kindness doesn't stand on its own. It needs a supporting cast of other essential virtues - like self-control, good judgment, courage and gratitude. So many things in our society teach a message of selfishness that it takes hard work to foster strong character in our kids. Lickona offers a program for all parents, including those who are struggling - and the confidence it can work.
With concrete examples drawn from the many families he has worked with and clear tips you can act on tonight, How to Raise Kind Kids will help you give and get respect, hold family meetings to tackle persistent problems, set up age-appropriate chores, get control of screens, tackle sibling cruelty, discipline in a way that builds character, and improve the dynamic of your relationship with your children, while putting them on the path to a happier and more fulfilling life.
