Embrace: My Story from Body Loather to Body Lover, Brumfitt, Taryn
1 Brumfitt, Taryn Embrace: My Story from Body Loather to Body Lover
Australia New Holland 2015 1742576184 / 9781742576183 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
188 pages including colour illustrations. Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve the perfect body, it comes from embracing the one you've already got." This is the book for every woman who hates the way her body looks, and derides herself for not having the perfect figure. It is for those who have allowed those negative and harmful thoughts to affect their self-confidence and inform their everyday behaviour. Once a body builder with a lean, toned and taut figure, Taryn's obsession with muscle definition and the sleek lines of her body came with the territory of her job. Pregnancy and motherhood stole the identity she was familiar with and left her with feelings of self-loathing and repulsion that affected the way she thought about herself. After contemplating cosmetic surgery to reclaim the body she wanted, Taryn had an epiphany. If she went ahead with the surgery, how would she teach her daughter to love and respect her own body if she couldn't do the same? Taryn's greatest challenge came next. How would she learn to love her body and transform the hatred she felt into something positive? Her journey to acceptance of her womanly figure and celebration of her femininity has been publicly chartered. Here she shares her story to help harness and facilitate positive body image activism for all women.

Only Child: A Provocative Analysis of the Impact of Being an Only Child, Cosic, Miriam
2 Cosic, Miriam Only Child: A Provocative Analysis of the Impact of Being an Only Child
Australia Lansdowne 1999 1863026452 / 9781863026451 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
232 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical references. Throughout the world, and certainly throughout Australia, more and more people are having just one child. The reasons are varied: economic pressures; women leaving motherhood until late in life; the ending of relationships before a second child can be considered. And more and more people are having just one child by choice. But only children have always been given a bad press. Having undivided parental attention, lacking the rough and tumble of growing up with brothers and sisters, they turn out - according to popular mythology - selfish and spoilt, or introverted and over-dependent. Is this true? Are only children really different to those with siblings? And if not, why do the popular stereotypes persist? In exploring these questions, Miriam Cosic has researched academic and general literature, interviewed only children - including celebrities - and psychologists. Her thought-provoking and often surprising conclusions bring much-needed balance to discussion of the subject and offer intriguing insights into the world of the only child. Crease in the cover.

Intuitive Mothering: Trusting Your Own Child Rearing Instincts, Mcpherson, Lyn
7 Mcpherson, Lyn Intuitive Mothering: Trusting Your Own Child Rearing Instincts
Australia New Holland Publishers, 2006 1741103525 / 9781741103526 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
191 pages. Your life will be transformed as you uncover the natural joy of motherhood and 'tune in' to the instincts you were designed to use, through this invaluable resource. Lyn shows you how to leave unnatural and unnecessary dogma and doctrine behind. You will finally find the answers that work for you...managing pregnancy and birth; sleep; behaviour and cooperation issues; sibling relationships; work and money; partners and much more. It includes a Foreword by Dr Suzanne Roffey, Lecturer in Educational Psychology, and endorsed by NAPCAN (National Assoc. for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect) "Intuitive Mothering" liberates mothers. It helps us realise motherhood is one of the most spiritual journeys taken in life, yet western culture teaches mothers to tune out the innate and powerful survival instincts required to make the journey whole and pure. 'Tuning in' to instinct seems to have become unnecessary because our lives are dominated or controlled by unnatural forces such as schedules and procedures. "Intuitive Mothering" enables mothers to 'tune in' from the word go. It shows us how to be wonderfully okay with who we are as mothers, and it's a journey that can only be learned from one mother to another. When we are tuned in to our instinct, we genuinely feel calm and in control. When we discover this reality, we recover the joy of mothering and it becomes a natural, beautiful experience. "Intuitive Mothering" will inspire and allow us to, at last, educate society into better understanding who we are. Through this book, mothers can feel united in their quest for uncovering the natural joy of motherhood, providing understanding, confidence and a deep sense of knowing to themselves, their children and the world around them. I am the proud mother of two little angels: Jasmine and Angelique. We are blessed with a beautiful, devoted husband and father, Duncan. It was through the challenges I faced as a new mother, that the reality of modern mothering became blatantly clear to me. In many ways, we are being discouraged from the joy of true connection and fulfilled mothering because we are being encouraged to ignore or disregard our instincts and intuition. "Intuitive Mothering" simply flowed through me. It became an incredible light to my life. It's almost as if my instincts wrote the book through me. I found myself living a completely transformed life: answers almost landed in my lap without needing to search, our whole family lived in peace and understanding - communicating and connecting automatically. It was like magic! I then felt deeply compelled to share this gift and now I feel I have received the ultimate gift: "Intuitive Mothering" is transforming lives all over the world just as it did mine and my families'. I hope you enjoy and value this precious gift. We can only create new possibility tomorrow if we create new possibility today! "Intuitive Mothering" uncovers the natural joy of motherhood and helps you 'tune in' to the instincts you were designed to use, leaving unnatural and unnecessary dogma and doctrine behind. Written for expectant mothers, new mothers, mothers of toddlers and mothers or carers of young children through to the pre-teen and even adult years, this book will help you discover practical solutions, confidence, clarity and connectedness that will last a lifetime. 'Tune in' to your instincts and find the answers that work for you on: pregnancy, birth, sleep, behaviour and cooperation, sibling relationships, work and money, partners and much more. Table of Contents: Foreword; INTRODUCTION; REDISCOVERING YOUR INSTINCT AND INTUITION; LIBERATING YOURSELF FROM CONVENTION; FENDING OFF UNWANTED INFLUENCES AND PRESSURE; MODERN TRENDS IN CHILD REARING VERSUS MOTHER'S INTUITION; FACING CHALLENGES AND ADVERSITY; AWAKENING THE JOY WITHIN; NURTURING AN ENLIGHTENED CHILD; TEACHING YOUR CHILD SOCIAL SKILLS; TEACHING TECHNIQUES FOR THE IN-TUNE MOTHER; PARENTS WORKING AS PARTNERS; LETTING GO TO KEEP CONNECTED.

Her story of how she escaped from that darkness into the light of Gods truth and goodness is an inspiring witness for all.
