Dare to Love: The Art of Merging Science and Love Into Parenting Children with Difficult Behaviors

Emerging science has helped us to understand children better from a neurological and behavioral standpoint. Yet, all the academic research coupled with the best diagnoses for children can still leave parents feeling completely powerless. Dare to Love describes in detail, through a series of questions and answers, how to merge science into everyday parenting. This book gives practical, effective, and loving solutions for any parent struggling with his or her child. 

The Gingerbread Girl

Full of pizzazz and adventure, The Gingerbread Girl takes children on an exploratory journey of emotions, survival challenges, and determination. Written from a trauma perspective, unlike the traditional Gingerbread Boy store, it has a different ending (SPOILER ALERT) that shows how even in the most challenging situations, you can still remain in a place of personal power and confidence. The Gingerbread Girl includes an in-depth social/emotional discussion guide, designed to be an example of how any traditional storybook can be used as a social/emotional learning experience for children.
