A page-turning debut of suspense about a young couple desperate to have a child of their own--and the unsettling consequences of getting what they always wanted. Christopher and Hannah are a happily married surgeon and nurse with picture-perfect lives. All that's missing is a child. When Janie, an abandoned six-year-old, turns up at their hospital, Christopher forms an instant connection with her, and he convinces Hannah they should take her home as their own. But Janie is no ordinary child, and her damaged psyche proves to be more than her new parents were expecting. Janie is fiercely devoted to Christopher, but she acts out in increasingly disturbing ways, directing all her rage at Hannah. Unable to bond with Janie, Hannah is drowning under the pressure, and Christopher refuses to see Janie's true nature. Hannah knows that Janie is manipulating Christopher and isolating him from her, despite Hannah's attempts to bring them all together. But as Janie's behavior threatens to tear Christopher and Hannah apart, the truth behind Janie's past may be enough to push them all over the edge.

Points to the thousands of decisions about prenatal testing that are made each day in the doctors office, the context in which they occur, and how they add up to the discourse of the perfect-and imperfect-child. Argues that the mainstream bioethics community has been ineffective in raising appropriate questions, resulting in support for the status quo. Draws on counter-voices from medicine and feminist ethics, as well as from pregnant women and people with disabilities, and reevaluates the uses of genetics and prenatal testing. [back cover].

Parenting is hard. But parenting is not really about children. Many of the problems we face as parents occur because we don't understand how to take care of our own wellbeing, nor how to resolve the pain and trauma of our past. Learning to have compassion for ourselves and finding the tools to practice self-care can transform parenting from a frustrating exercise in self-will to the transcendent experience it's meant to be. This book is the story of one family's parent-child struggle to find happiness and fulfillment, with insights into parenting and childhood development which can help everyone to become a better parent.

Popular actress and stand-up comedienne Elizabeth Beckwith gives us the parenting guide to end all parenting guides: Raising the Perfect Child through Guilt and Manipulation. A frequent guest on The Late, Late Show and one of seven comics featured in the Time magazine article, “Funny: The Next Generation,” Beckwith now puts forth a hilarious new parenting philosophy that would shock Dr. Spock and traumatize T. Berry Brazelton. Raising the Perfect Child through Guilt and Manipulation is a riotously irreverent take on contemporary child rearing.

Sergio Ruzzier brings his mischievous touch to a timeless favorite by Florence Parry Heide, beloved author of The Shrinking of Treehorn. This delightful new edition includes one never-before-published story. Ruby is reliable (kinda). Arthur is careful (sorta). Harry eats his carrots (though it depends on what you mean by “eat”). And just like all perfect children, Gloria helps her mother (well, that might be an exaggeration). As the eight deliciously wicked tales featured in this hilarious chapter book prove, it’s perfectly nice to be a perfect child—but where’s the fun in that?

Growing up with a behavioral or learning disorder is never easy; not for the parents, not for the teachers, and especially not for the affected child. The past 15 years have seen an unprecedented explosion in the diagnosis of ADHD, Autism, Tourette's, Asperger's, Defient Behavior. Many of those affected are now reaching adulthood. What will their future be? While growing up in the trenches of disfunctionality, the author was institutionalized at age 8 and diagnosed as mentally retarded: a diagnosis his parents refused to accept. This story of hope and transformation will inspire and encourage the millions of troubled parents who worry about what the future holds for their "Less Than Perfect Child" and help those adults who have never been diagnosed, yet struggle daily with behavioral and learning disorders.

A perfect child: * Dresses neatly and practises the violin before breakfast * Comes top of the class and is captain of everything * Is unfailingly obedient and sweet-tempered * Is a perfect credit to its perfect mother A real child: * Prefers shoelaces undone and mismatched socks * Shouts 'Bum!' at Granny * Turns breakfast and bedtime into a battleground * Is the normal offspring of imperfect parents With affectionate lack of illusion and a refreshing honesty about her own shortcomings, Libby Purves examines the pleasures and pitfalls of raising children from three to eight years old. Playgroup, starting school, rude words, pets - all these topics are tackled with frank good humour and down-to-earth advice. Best of all is her reassuring reminder that there is no such thing as a perfect child.
