4 Don't Leave Your Friends Behind: Concrete Ways to Support Families in Social Justice Movements and Communities
PM Press 160486396X / 9781604863963 PAPERBACK New 
160486396X Don?t Leave Your Friends Behind is a collection of concrete tips, suggestions, and narratives on ways that non-parents can support parents, children, and caregivers in their communities, social movements, and collective processes. Don?t Leave Your Friends Behind focuses on issues affecting children and caregivers within the larger framework of social justice, mutual aid, and collective liberation. How do we create new, nonhierarchical structures of support and mutual aid, and include all ages in the struggle for social justice? There are many books on parenting, but few on being a good community member and a good ally to parents, caregivers, and children as we collectively build a strong all-ages culture of resistance. Any group of parents will tell you how hard their struggles are and how they are left out, but no book focuses on how allies can address issues of caretakers? and children?s oppression. Many well-intentioned childless activists don?t interact with young people on a regular basis and don?t know how. Don?t Leave Your Friends Behind provides them with the resources and support to get started.

24 Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood
PM Press 1604864818 / 9781604864816 PAPERBACK New 
1604864818 Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood combines the best pieces from the award-winning zineRad Dad and from the blog Daddy Dialectic, two kindred publications that have tried to explore parenting as political territory. Both of these projects have pushed the conversation around fathering beyond the safe, apolitical focus most books and websites stick to; they have not been complacent but have worked hard to create a diverse, multi-faceted space in which to grapple with the complexity of fathering. Today more than ever, fatherhood demands constant improvisation, risk, and struggle. With grace and honesty and strength, Rad Dad?s writers tackle all the issues that other parenting guides are afraid to touch: the brutalities, beauties, and politics of the birth experience, the challenges of parenting on an equal basis with mothers, the tests faced by transgendered and gay fathers, the emotions of sperm donation, and parental confrontations with war, violence, racism, and incarceration. Rad Dad is for every father out in the real world trying to parent in ways that are loving, meaningful, authentic, and ultimately revolutionary. Contributors Include: Steve Almond, Jack Amoureux, Mike Araujo, Mark Andersen, Jeff Chang, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Jeff Conant, Sky Cosby, Jason Denzin, Cory Doctorow, Craig Elliott, Chip Gagnon, Keith Hennessy, David L. Hoyt, Simon Knapus, Ian MacKaye, Tomas Moniz, Zappa Montag, Raj Patel, Jeremy Adam Smith, Jason Sperber, Burke Stansbury, Shawn Taylor, Tata, Jeff West, and Mark Whiteley.

25 Sexuality, Partnership and Marriag
Gadeke, Wolfgang Temple Lodge Publishing 0904693996 / 9780904693997 PAPERBACK New 
0904693996 Sexuality, partnership, and marriage present us with some of the most difficult life challenges and questions of our time. With social attitudes in constant flux, some of these questions seem almost unanswerable. What is a healthy relationship? What is the role a partner?whether male or female? What is the place of sexuality in a relationship? Are marriage and monogamy still relevant in the twenty-first century? In this invaluable collection of accessible interviews and lectures, the author deals with these and many other questions with refreshing candor. Having gained much knowledge from his many years of work as a priest, marriage counselor, and studies of Anthroposophy, G?deke?s approach is full of spiritual insight, as well as frank, practical, and down-to-earth. Some of the themes discussed are overcoming blocks to communication; finding one?s essential self within a marriage; the role of children in a relationship; sexuality and children; perversions; the role of counseling; relationships and monogamy; the concept of marriage and its spiritual repercussions; biological and soul differences; and, the fundamental sexual polarity of man and woman.

28 The Art of Conscious Parenting: The Natural Way to Give Birth, Bond with, and Raise Healthy Children
Fine Ph.D., Jeffrey L. Healing Arts Press 159477322X / 9781594773228 PAPERBACK New 
159477322X New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Pacific Northwest Independent Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 254 p. Audience: General/trade. A new approach to creating, rediscovering, and renewing the intimate bonds between parents and children Explains the importance of bonding with your child in utero and the physical and mental preparation needed even before conception Shows how green parenting--breast-feeding, contact with nature, and low-tech creativity--can enhance your child s life Art of Conscious Parenting won the 2010 Gold Nautilus Award for the best Parenting/Childcare book. Nautilus Awards recognize books that promote spiritual growth, conscious living and positive social change, while at the same time stimulating the "imagination" and offer the reader "new possibilities" for a better life and a better world. Our first days and months of life are critical in forming the attitudes we bring into adulthood and in structuring the very roots of our personality. Simple bonding techniques--long forgotten in our modern world but stemming from the age-old customs of indigenous peoples--are at the core of a new model of conscious parenting that can produce happy and well-adjusted children. These practices also help parents experience an increased joy and intimacy both with their child and with each other. Based on obstetric and psychological evidence, Jeffrey and Dalit Fine reveal how bonding begins in utero and that the physical and mental preparation of both the father and mother, even before conception, sets the tone for the future well-being of the child. They show how sustained physical contact and simple ways of consciously interacting with your infant--eye contact with the newborn, baby-wearing instead of stroller use, and co-sleeping--have an observable positive effect. They also show that the green parenting practices of breast-feeding, contact with nature, and simple low-tech creative play not only provide a more hands-on and intimate approach to parenting but also are more economical and environmentally sustainable. From in-utero bonding through the challenges and joys of consciously.

1580051235 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 256 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. It's been over a decade since Ariel Gore, in a caffeine-induced brainstorm, invented Hip Mama as her senior project in college. zine that has grown up alongside Gore's daughter, has covered subjects from weaning to home schooling with a political edge and a puckish sense of humor. Essential Hip Mama captures the heart of a decade's worth of earthy, honest, soulful parenting and topics from circumcision to dating, abortion to the (mistaken) belief that mothers don't fart. Gore has gathered in one volume the whispers and conversations heard in homes, on playgrounds, and in coffeehouses around the country. Reassuring and hopeful, Essential Hip Mama is a brilliant testament that one becomes an expert simply through the act of mothering, echoing Gore's own words, Whenever I've needed parenting advice, I've put out a call for submissions. This paperback original offers the most hilarious and heart-wrenching essays from ten years of this quintessential alternative-parenting bible.

In lives where there is a new diagnosis or drama every day, the stories in this collection provide parents of special needs kids with a welcome chuckle, a rock to stand on, and a moment of reality held far enough from the heart to see clearly. Featuring works by alternative parents who have attempted to move away from mainstream thought--or remove its influence altogether--this anthology, taken as a whole, carefully considers the implications of parenting while raising children with disabilities. From professional writers to novice storytellers including Robert Rummel-Hudson, Ayun Halliday, and Kerry Cohen, this assortment of authentic, shared experiences from parents at the fringe of the fringes is a partial antidote to the stories that misrepresent, ridicule, and objectify disabled kids and their parents.
