Raising Children in a Socially Toxic Environment
This Gives Parents Good Ideas For Raising Healthy Children
Garbarino articulates very well the difficulty of raising children in a "toxic" environment. He takes an environmentalist approach or viewpoint and in a way it is very comforting because it gives good guidelines for parents on how to protect their children. He also strongly outlines ideas for social and political policy. This books gives parents a "global" view of childrearing. While it ...

Socially ADDept: A Manual for Parents of Children with ADHD and/or Learning Disabilities
Janet Z. Giler
C E S Continuing Education Seminars
Kid?s Guide to Making Friends
When a friend recommended "Socially ADDept," Dr. Janet Z. Giler's manual of social skills for children with ADHD, I accepted the suggestion with some reluctance. Like every other parent with an ADHD kid, I'm already drowning in pedagogical advice. If raising one of these children were as simple as "love and logic" or "parenting without punishment" these kids wouldn't be any harder to raise than ...
Helping Your Socially Vulnerable Child: What to Do When Your Child Is Shy, Socially Anxious, Withdrawn, or ...
Andrew R. Eisen
Linda B., Ph.D. Engler
New Harbinger Publications
This book was more about the "facts" of having a sensitive child and how it affects their social functioning. They gave a lot of "real life" examples of child in certain social settings and how they were able to overcome their vulnerablity. This book also gave more of a hands on approach to helping a child become more socially involved without pushing them into it and making the situation even ...

The book also provides a great intro on how to evaluate proxy ...
Bratproofing Your Children: How to Raise Socially and Financially Responsible Kids
Lewis D. Solomon
Janet Stern Solomon
Bratproofing especially clear on basic estate & trust law
"Bratproofing" is an unusually clear and lucid book, both about parenting as well as about the basics of estate and trust law. Since both my parents died this year, and I found myself as power-of-attorney and trust adviser, I eagerly read the second half of the book. It was the clearest, most concise treatment of estate and trust concepts that I'd seen. It made me realize what a good job my ...
The Design of Dissent: Socially and Politically Driven Graphics
Large size, full color, smart thinking in text, a gem of a book
I bought this book for my son last year, and ended up reading it and going through it myself as I start to think more about collective intellligence, five minds, group IQ and such. Dissent and diversity are so important to all of us, that I am moved to suggest this book--which Amazon is offering at a price way below its actual value--as the perfect Christmas present for any college student or ...

Emotionally Intelligent Parenting: How to Raise a Self-Disciplined, Responsible, Socially Skilled Child
Maurice J. Elias Ph.D.
Steven E. Tobias Psy.D.
Three Rivers Press
Different from many "how to" manuals
The authors make a compelling and cogent argument for the use of humor and understanding in parent/child interactions. Illustrated with useful dialogues, the concepts presented are easy to visualize and implement. I am usually loathe to read this genre. The instant quantification of an entire field into a few pages generally does not appeal. In this book, no pretense is made. The subject ...

Why Doesn't Anybody Like Me?: A Guide To Raising Socially Confident Kids
Hara E. Marano
Excellent - For Parents of Kids Having A Hard Time
This is a good base for parents whose kids are having a hard time in school. I found it to be very Cause & Effect which was just what my son (and I) needed. I read it three or four years ago when my son was having a dreadfully hard time. I put the concepts from the book to practice in my own way (i.e., "movie dates" with him where we watched movies and discussed emotions and 'reading' people's ...
The Socially Skilled Child Molester: Differentiating the Guilty from the Falsely Accused
Carla Van Dam
Belongs on the professional's - and parent's - bookshelf
This is an excellent piece of work, and definitely worth reading. Van Dam gives clear and understandable criteria for identifying molesters. I was particularly pleased with van Dam's semantic separation of child molesters into two categories: Groomers and Grabbers. If these identifying labels become standard usage when discussing this crime, especially in the media, it may have an impact on the ...
Pension Fund Politics: The Dangers of Socially Responsible Investing (Business Economics)
Valuable information for anyone wanting to understand how Socially Responsible Investing impacts pension funds
The idea of corporate executives looting and mishandling pension funds (defined benefit programs) and harming their retiree's sickens all of us. Those that abuse these trusts (sacred trusts, in my book) should be punished. And if the law can't get them, they deserve every bit of public opprobrium we can send their way. However, it is vital to realize that the boardroom is not the only threat ...

An Investor's Guide to Ethical & Socially Responsible Investment Funds (Investor's Guide To...)
This volume is a compendium of chapters written by editor John Hancock and other highly regarded experts. Their clear, comprehensive book appears to be targeted to fund managers and corporate investor relations officers, more than to average green-minded investors. Don't expect passionate jeremiads on the health of Mother Earth. Indeed, the authors point to a growing scientific consensus that ...
