Listen to me! : taking the conflict out of child discipline / Martin, Anna
“Are you confused by all the different parenting advice on how to discipline your child? Have you been trying a variety of different methods for years that don’t really work or feel uncomfortable to use? Regardless of your situation, you might find it helpful to change the way you think about discipline altogether. Dr Anna Martin has turned traditional methods on their head to come up with effective strategies that put listening and the wellbeing of children before lecturing.” (adapted from Catalogue)

Maybe you should talk to someone : a therapist, her therapist, and our lives revealed / Gottlieb, Lori
“With starting wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change. This book is revolutionary in its candor, offering a deeply personal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds. It reveals what it means to be human!” (Catalogue)

Girl, stop apologizing : a shame-free plan for embracing and achieving your goals / Hollis, Rachel
Rachel Hollis knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people–whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee–instead of learning how to own who they are and what they want. With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself.” (Dust jacket)
