“I don’t know why my daughter is so angry. She yells at me all the time!” “Our daughter comes home, goes straight to her room, turns on her CD player and won’t talk to anyone– especially me.” “The emotional ups and downs of our daughter’s life make us all feel like we’re on a roller coaster.” Navigating an adolescent daughter’s emotional life is one of a mom’s toughest challenges. A teenage girl’s volatile emotions can seemingly toss her–and you–like a hurricane. When a scary external world and a turbulent internal world collide, the result is sometimes overwhelming and confusing. What can you do to protect your relationship with your daughter, guide her through this chaotic time, and assure her you are truly on her side? Your Adolescent Daughter’ s Struggles Can Help Her–and You–to Grow and Thrive. The good news is you are equipped with the most powerful resource available for maintaining and developing connection with your daughter: a mother’s heart. Learn how you can use hand-in-hand mothering skills to become the ally your daughter needs–parenting out of love, not fear–and find out how you both can experience dramatic, life-changing growth in the process.

In Hitler Saved My Life, advertising legend Jim Riswold brilliantly combines incisive and funny essays with gorgeous and hilarious visuals to chronicle his battle with cancer and details how a post-diagnosis career transformation into a 'fake artist' helped stave off death. And that fake art, inhabited by tyrants like Mao, Hitler and Mussolini, has provoked a great deal of controversy. But as one critic noted, Riswold's work 'teaches us how to deal with monsters, be it a Hitler or a deadly disease.'

Old and New Evidence on the Meaning of Life: The dynamics of spiritual development

Author: Joseph Hilary Michael Whiteman

This volume follows up Volume 1 of The Meaning of Life - 'An Introduction to Scientific Mysticism' - with a comprehensive study of individual character-development at all levels from the most mentally disordered to the most spiritually illuminated and fulfilling, always on a basis of first-hand experience. The evidence is by no means limited to this-world observations and behaviour, but extends to states of consciousness in which personality-structure and non-physical beings in non-physical 'worlds' are known with high rating in a Scale of Reality. Attention is given especially to 'ultimate' and 'near-ultimate' contests and habitual practices, leading eventually to the mystical transformation. The explanatory system presented involves, in particular, the fourfold 'creative' or 'learning' cycle (extended to sixteen on occasion) and the mystical view of personality structure (individual in charge, and contributory minds). These and other principles throw a flood of light on problems of psychological and mystical development, including those of sexuality at all levels up to that of the unitive life at supra-physical levels.

I had no false illusions that there would be no further complications for us, but seeing Josh next to my mother took me completely by surprise.Her head swung around to look at Max and her hair flew after her.I leaned forward and whispered to her: "Don't worry, I'll be right here.Had I been further away, I wouldn't have been able to hear her answer: "Okay.I nodded to Max and forced him to smile tightly before he reached out his arm to Sharon and directed her to a group of tables on the opposite side of the room where our friends and family were.I rubbed my eyes and squeezed the bridge of my nose. Damn it! Max didn't know any better. All he knew was that Sharon and Josh had a relationship and played together for even longer, which then suddenly ended and affected the music program.I reached out my arm to the door and tried to encourage her to go back in. She looked at me with a blank stare, but she went back. We had only been gone a few minutes.Sharon was standing next to Max with a group of people. She turned her head to the side and our eyes met. She tried hard to keep a smile, but I smiled at her as broadly as possible and said "I love you", which made her noticeably relaxed.I went and sat down next to Jeff and Mia, opposite Mom and Josh. Josh had moved most of his chair away from the table and turned it towards Mum. I could see him watching Sharon as she moved across the room. Mom regularly leaned over and whispered something to him, but I couldn't make out what she was saying. Jeff, Mia, Maria and I made small talk, being aware of how uncomfortable the situation was.I watched as Sharon finally came to our table. Even in her somewhat delicate emotional state she was absolutely stunning, perfect in every way.I wanted to ask her what had happened, but it was her choice if or when she was gonna tell me. I knew her well enough to know that the only thing she needed right now was for me to be there for her. I put my cheek on her head and closed my eyes.I smiled at her and pushed the door open. We went in together.Every eye in the room turned to see her when she walked in. Her forced smile from early evening was replaced by her perfect smile that I loved so much.In the middle of the room, surrounded by tables on all sides, she stopped and I stood beside her. She looked up at me and stood on her toes. Even with all these people around me she was all I could see when I looked at her.She kissed me.It was a light and tender kiss, but her lips pressed against mine and with it she had announced our relationship with the world. When she withdrew from me, her eyes glittered in the lights with the slightest hint of tears, but tears of joy. With her actions she told me that there was nothing that would ever come between us. Everything we would ever do would be together.Max took a step towards us from where he had been standing beside our table, with an expression of complete shock on his face. Sharon reached out her left hand to him and clearly showed him her ring. He froze in his tracks.All the tables in the room except one erupted in applause. All they knew was that Savannah, the incredibly talented and beautiful violinist who had captivated the University of Maryland beyond the normal music scene, had effectively announced her engagement, especially on the evening of her solo performance, Valentine's Day.At one table there was only stunned silence.
