Live your best life—even after your kids leave home When her children left for college, Melissa Shultz was certain that she had prepared them well for their new lives-but her own life was a different matter entirely. Her house was empty, her purpose unclear. If her life was no longer dominated by the day-to-day demands of being "Mom," then who exactly was she? And how would she ever move forward? From Mom to Me Again is the story of one woman's reinvention. Shultz's struggle with the empty nest and the transformation of her marriage, friendships, career, and ultimately herself, is part memoir and part self-help guide. Funny, poignant, and practical, this book tells Shultz's personal story and provides valuable advice for readers preparing to send their children off into the world. She shows women that while they'll always be mothers, it's time for them to take center stage in their own lives once again.

Today’s educators face challenges unparalleled by previous generations of teachers. A typical classroom is comprised of students from diverse backgrounds, varying languages and unique backgrounds. In order for educators to meet the needs of the individual students within their classes, they must have a grasp on the challenges facing their students. Currently in education, the focus is on marginalized students and the impact their circumstances have on their ability to learn. This book is designed to make the various hardships encountered by many students more personal in order to give teachers insight into the very real needs of today’s students. Educators are familiar with the data regarding students; however, it is through the individual story of students that teachers are reminded of their vital role in nurturing and educating the students that fill their desks each year. This book will pair student narratives with brain research to provide valuable insights to K-12 educators and university professors.

Little Critter and his mother take a trip to the city exploring the department stores and museums.
Broken relationships between adult children and their parents is a widespread phenomenon. While the parent-child attachment relationship is of critical importance for the child in the early years of life, the parent-child relationship continues to be a source of great importance over the course of the individual’s life span for both the child and the parent. For adults and adult children who are estranged/alienated from each other, the pain and dissatisfaction never fully go away. Despite the prevalence of the problem of ruptured relationships, there are few resources available for mental health professionals working with this population. This book provides a tool for clinicians to turn to when they are working with adult children and their parents seeking to resolve conflict, improve communication, and enhance their relationships.

Hi, readers. I am Tony “the Tiger” Green. I have written this book, Pick Up Your Own Damn Crutch, for several reasons. It helps me work out mentally, the trials I have been through, allowing me to put in perspective regarding my life. There have been many good times in my life, and humorous times. I also hope my story will help others deal with their life trials, whether it is surgery/pain, mental illness/depression, or relationship/loneliness. I have always said, “Everyone is different, but we all have our strengths”. Respecting yourself is very important. Life can be more joyous if you respect others for who they are and care for their needs. This will always make you feel better about yourself. I believe God, our Creator, put each one of us here to write our own story. We are here in this wonderful world God had given us. We need to appreciate all and take care of the gifts that we have family, friends, and our environment and help lift those who are less fortunate. You might wonder how I named this book. It starts with a trip to McDonald’s with Mom and her best friend Lani Collins. I was 7 years old. Mom and Papa were always telling me to be careful and take care of my things. They would say don’t depend on someone to help you! They were a lot of old people who were there eating too and they kept watching us. When we were eating, Mom told me again to be careful with my crutches and don’t let them fall. After we ate and it was time to go, Mom told me again to get my crutches. When Mom and Lani reached the door, they looked back to make sure I was coming. As they looked, I dropped my crutches and said “Mom”! She yelled loud and everyone heard her say “Pick Up Your Own Damn Crutch!” All the people were shocked and Lani ran out the door because she was embarrassed. Ha ha ha! It has always been one of my favorite stories. I laugh about all the time with my family.

Sima Schloss, an observant Jew, talks about the choices a caregiver makes, and the resulting stress that ensues, in caring for an aging parent or relative, in this case, her ninety-plus years old grandmother (whom she affectionately called Mom), who is in declining health. In Sima's own words, "As a Jew, I know that I am commanded to perform acts of loving-kindness, including visiting the sick. I tried my best to be attentive to my loved ones as they endured sickness and faced death. In the beginning of the five years, I tried so hard that I lost myself in the process. I was so addicted to taking care of other people, I forgot to take care of myself. Then I founded Codependents Anonymous (CoDA), a self-help organization that uses meetings and the twelve steps of recovery to build healthier lives. I used the steps to forge a healthy balance between kindness to others and kindness to myself"--from chapter one.
