The key ingredient to success for girls isn’t confidence or resilience, education or courage. What matters most is how all these elements work together in the boldest way possible. This is What Girls Need, now and for the future. Based on ground-breaking work at the all-girls Baldwin School, renowned for helping girls thrive personally and professionally, and using lessons from the author’s own stellar career path in typically male-dominated environments - she has a BA from Harvard in Geophysics, flown jets for the US Navy and been a counter-terrorism expert in Afghanistan and the White House - this is an essential hand-book for all parents of girls - and anyone who cares about girls and what happens to them. It will empower you to help her close the confidence gap with boys, find her voice, nurture her competitive spirit, turn her audacity into persuasion, learn the art and skill of networking, and find role models – all the things that will help her succeed as an adult woman – whatever field they enter, whatever challenge they face.

All I Need To Know I Learned From The Golden Girls

If you’re looking for the ultimate Golden Girls trivia book then this is not the book for you and you should probably look somewhere else. Same if you’re looking for a summary of each episode, interviews with the cast, gossip from backstage, or anything factual or related to any sort of biographical or informative type of work. But, if you’re looking for a fun and silly memoir that lovingly chronicles how the wit, wisdom, and storylines of the Golden Girls television show can touch our lives THEN this IS the book for YOU. We've been told that everything we need to know about life can be found in the lessons of kindergarten, Little Golden Books, or from the Twilight Zone. In truth, while those sources make great points, the real lessons of life can be found by hanging out with The Golden Girls. For over thirty years the wit and wisdom of those four sassy broads has withstood the test of time and brought to us not only a blueprint for living well, but also the knowledge we need to do good (in bed if Blanche has anything to do it) and be good (also in bed) as well as vivacious, strong, and fierce (those are both in bed and out of bed). This collection of anecdotes is replete with musings on life, death, love, and the many Italian dishes of Sophia Petrillo. Through the lens of one of the best shows ever to be on television (well, it's no T.J. Hooker, but c'mon, what is?) we go on a journey with the author that is both personal and amusing. The author engages us by relating the virtues and moral ideas gleaned from the show to incidents and characters from her own life. Personal narratives that include: the required endurance needed to be married to an Englishman (they're crazy, if you don't believe me, ask the Queen... I bet she has tales to tell about ol' Phillip), how to date ex-convicts when you don't know you are (seriously, this happened), and even life with a family that includes murderers and drug dealers (same person, but I have to make this exciting). All of this along with a back drop that includes tales from Miami in the 80s.So, grab your shoulder pads, a box of condoms, your St. Olaf yearbook, and a bucket of marinara and relax the one book guaranteed to change your life - even if the only change is having lost a few hours of it to the nonsense in these pages. Or, as the girls would teach us - grab life by the ziti, love each other to the fullest, and never give up on ourselves or our sex lives.

The Other Glass Teat

The late, multi-award-winning author of The Glass Teat continues his critical assault on television in this second collection of classic criticism. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, there were only three major television networks broadcasting original programs and news. And there was only one Harlan Ellison taking them all to task in a series of weekly essays he wrote for the countercultural, underground newspaper, the Los Angeles Free Press, a.k.a. “The Freep.” For nearly four years, he channel surfed through the mire of ABC, CBS, and NBC, finding little of value but much to critique. No one offered a more astute analysis of the idiot box’s influence on American culture, or its effects on the intelligence and psyche of viewers. The Other Glass Teat: Further Essays of Opinion on the Subject of Television collects Ellison’s final fifty columns, presenting his thoughts on everything from dramas and sitcoms to game shows and roundtable discussions, unleashing his fury against sponsors, the nightly news, and the broadcasts of President Nixon—warning readers about the commander-in-chief’s war against the media long before the Watergate scandal broke. As television has evolved into wireless streaming services and digital interactions on portable devices, Ellison’s timeless rage against the machine has become prophecy. His plea to unplug is an even more necessary call to action in the face of the twenty-first century’s media onslaught. Also available: The Glass Teat: Essays of Opinion on the Subject of Television

Offering the same brand of practical, no-holds-barred, expert advice that made Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office an international million-copy bestseller, Nice Girls Just Don't Get It teaches us the skills we need to turn from a nice girl into a winning woman, not just in our careers but in our relationships, families, and everyday lives. Have you ever felt invisible? Taken advantage of? Reluctant (or unable) to articulate what you really want? If so, join the club. The nice girls club. Nice girls—that's right, girls—are those more concerned with pleasing others than with addressing their own needs and haven't yet learned how to overcome the childhood messages cultural stereotypes keeping them from getting their voices heard, their needs met, and the lives they want. This book will turn those nice girls into winning women. That is, women who factor their own needs in with those of others, confront those who treat them disrespectfully, maintain healthy and mutually beneficial relationships with appropriate boundaries— and as a result, are happier and more successful in every area of their life. In 2004, Lois Frankel blew the lid off so many of our long-held ideas about gender and success with her bestselling Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office, which went on to become such a huge phenomenon, the term "nice girls" has secured a place in our cultural lexicon. Here, Frankel teams up with negotiation expert Carol Frohlinger to bring this bestselling advice out of the workplace and provide a broader set of skills that any woman—whether a CEO or stay-at-home mom—can use to win anywhere, with anyone. Presented in the straightforward, digestible format that helped make Nice Girl's Don't Get the Corner Office an instant hit, Frankel and Frohlinger outline seven practical strategies and 99 supporting tactics that every winning woman should know. By the time you've finished reading this book, you'll be able to: • Get your husband to do his half of the household chores—without being made to feel like a nag. • Stop overextending yourself by taking on all the unpleasant tasks no one on your volunteer board, or your team at work will go near. • Win an argument with your mother in law about who will be hosting Christmas dinner. • Have the courage to send back a meal that isn’t prepared the way you’d ordered it. • Confront a colleague who is shirking responsibility or taking credit for your work. • Convince a sales person to reduce a fee, waive a surcharge, or honor a store credit. • Question a doctor’s course or treatment or request a second opinion, instead of simply going along in order to be a “good” patient. • Firmly but politely bow out of an extravagant vacation to celebrate a friend’s birthday that you simply can’t afford–without feeling guilty about it. And so much more. A must-read for anyone who's ever felt taken advantage of by a friend or family member, unappreciated by a spouse or partner, or exploited by a vindictive neighbor or co-worker, Nice Girls Just Don't Get It offers women the indispensable knowledge and skills to get the things they want, the respect they've earned, and the success they deserve.

Understanding And Addressing Girls Aggressive Behaviour Problems

Understanding and Addressing Girls’ Aggressive Behaviour Problems reflects a major shift in understanding children’s aggressive-behaviour problems. Researchers used to study what went wrong with a troubled child and needed to be fixed; we now aim to understand what is going wrong in children’s relationships that might create, exacerbate, and maintain aggressive-behaviour problems in childhood and adolescence. In this volume, leading researchers in the aggression field examine how problems develop for boys and girls in relationships and how we can help children to develop healthy relationships. Individual chapters explore biological and social contexts, including physical health and relationship problems that might underlie the development of aggressive behaviour problems. The impact of relationships on girls’ development is illustrated to be particularly important for Aboriginal girls. Contributors discuss prevention and intervention strategies that help aggressive children build the requisite skills and relationship capacities and also shift dynamics within critical social contexts, such as the family, peer group, classroom, and school. The support of healthy development not only of children but of their parents and other important adults in their lives, including teachers has been shown to be effective in reducing the burden of suffering associated with aggression among children and adolescents—for youth themselves as well as their families, peers, schools, communities, and society.

The general public often views early childhood education as either simply “babysitting” or as preparation for later learning. Of course, both viewpoints are simplistic. Deep understanding of child development, best educational practices based on development, emergent curriculum, cultural competence and applications of family systems are necessary for high-quality early education. Highly effective early childhood education is rare in that it requires collaboration and transitions among a variety of systems for children from birth through eight years of age. The SAGE Encyclopedia of Contemporary Early Childhood Education presents in three comprehensive volumes advanced research, accurate practical applications of research, historical foundations and key facts from the field of contemporary early childhood education. Through approximately 425 entries, this work includes all areas of child development – physical, cognitive, language, social, emotional, aesthetic – as well as comprehensive review of best educational practices with young children, effective preparation for early childhood professionals and policy making practices, and addresses such questions as: · How is the field of early childhood education defined? · What are the roots of this field of study? · How is the history of early childhood education similar to yet different from the study of public education? · What are the major influences on understandings of best practices in early childhood education?
