            An important book that investigates the development of our girls from ten to teenager and the fact that this shift is happening much earlier than ever before. At ten, we know how girls are pigeonholing themselves into wat they think they should be. Whether they see themselves as ...academic or not, whether they are interested in boys, puberty is a reality, friendship fights are underway, and the influence of social media is impacting. With heightened pressure from what they see in the media, in movies and on TV, our girls are leaving childhood behind well before they hit their teens. Not surprisingly, emotions can be heightened and relationships can be fraught. So many parents struggle to understand the pressures our girls are under and how to deal with their emotional volatility. Journalist and social commentator Madonna King has an extraordinary ability to connect with experts, schools and the girls themselves to deliver the answers parents need and the communication our girls want. TEN-AGER is the perfect guide to help parents understand how their daughter is feeling, what they need to know, what to say and when to stay silent and listen.

            Searching for permission to drop your standards, ditch the guilt and relax? The Secret of Half-arsed Parenting is a funny and practical antidote to the extreme stress of modern parenting. It pokes fun at the unrealistic goals and expectations thrust on parents today, and offers a... way to raise kids with less pressure, less guilt, less stress and fewer cupcakes baked at midnight. It's not about doing a bad job. It's about recognising that parents don't have to be perfect. What's wrong with toasted sandwiches for dinner? Kids sharing rooms and bathrooms? The fact your child's first word was Bluey rather than Mama? Half-arsed parents let their kids succeed - and fail - on their own merits. They will protect them from bullies, head lice and mullet hairstyles, but not from every knock and bump of life that will make them better adults. Drawing on alarming research into anxiety in children and parents in this era of helicopter parenting, journalist Susie O'Brien lays out the case for embracing a bit of half-arsed parenting in your house. By doing half as much, you might just make everyone twice as happy. Here's how.

Trimester by trimester, step-by-step exercises to develop your strength, fitness, and flexibility, helping you to carry your growing baby in greater comfort and prepare you for labor. Best of all, you can do it all at home, with minimal or no equipment. Learn how to keep your baby safe when working out, what exercises you can and can't do at each stage of pregnancy, what physical changes you can expect in each trimester, and how to tackle common complaints, from morning sickness to back pain.
