Today’s middle school girls have it rough.
In a few short years, they go through an incredible number of biological and emotional changes, making this the most formative—and riskiest—time in their lives. Groups turn on each other, a trusted childhood friend can reveal secrets by sending a text message or updating a Facebook status, and deciding where to sit in the cafeteria can be a daily struggle. As any tween will tell you, life for a middle school girl can be summed up in one word: drama.
Haley Kilpatrick’s own turbulent middle school experience inspired Girl Talk, a nonprofit organization in which high school mentors offer a “just been there” perspective to tween girls, helping them build self-esteem and develop leadership skills. Here, Haley delivers the definitive guidebook, packed with anecdotes from real girls around the country, who offer their insight into why her friends’ approval is suddenly vitally important, why she feels pressured to be perfect, why she’s no longer telling her parents everything, and what three vital things adults can offer to the girls in their lives to downplay the drama.
Filled with practical strategies from tweens and teen mentors to help adults understand what girls today are facing, The Drama Years is a must-read for anyone struggling to help girls navigate the often difficult transition into adolescence.Great product!
Cheap holiday packages are now easily accessible for everyone anywhere in the world. The popularity of traveling has never before reached the height it’s achieved today. Thanks to the Internet and cable TV, many people all over the world have become interested in exploring other parts of the globe. Airlines, travel agencies, and vacation sites now offer many promotional rates and tempting offers as a result of this rise in demand in the industry. To help you bag a good deal for your next vacation, here are some tips.
One of the basic rules in getting good rates for flights and other transports, accommodations, theme park and event tickets, and other vacation requirements is to plan ahead. If you haven’t set your eyes yet on any particular destination, the Internet is a deep resource of information and reviews about travel destinations and everything else that go with it – how to get there, where to stay, and many more. Check the off-peak season to get the lowest rates possible. If you’d like to go during peak season, however, do not just plan ahead, but also book way ahead. Make your reservations 6 months in advance, or even earlier, if the airline, hotel, or agency permits. With the huge number of people traveling locally and internationally everyday, for business or leisure, you’ve got a slim chance of getting those limited offers from airlines and travel agents if you decide at the last minute.
Consider booking budget airlines and hotels. Again, due to the increasing demand for cheap holiday packages, hotels, flights, and others, many travel products and services in the budget category these days aren’t so compromising in quality anymore. You might be surprised that there are budget hotels that offer satisfying complimentary breakfast, Internet access, and personalized service. Don’t instantly overlook this level when planning your holiday next time. Just remember to read all the terms and conditions before entering your credit card details or signing anything.
Another option is going through a price comparison site. Price comparison sites have been growing in the recent years and are now available for many items – used cars, toys, computers, clothing, and vacation packages. Just by going on a single website, you’ll be able to see all the available travel deals for you from various online travel establishments.
If you’d like to bag one of those cheap holiday packages online, be sure to think about it ahead. Check the Web today about your destination choices and the best travel deals through airlines, agencies, and price comparison sites. Remember, though, to read all the terms well before booking.

Feel disconnected from your spouse or partner? Struggle to keep your relationship fresh? Worried that everything will end in heartbreak?
It’s easy to fall in love. The challenging part is keeping that spark alive while you and your partner deal with “the real world.”
Your relationship can often seem less urgent than the day-to-day emergencies that you deal with — your job, finances, children, and that to-do list full of chores. They all demand your immediate attention. So how do you find the time to nurture your love and intimacy?
What often gets lost in the shuffle is the love you share with your partner. Maybe you’ve neglected some of the positive habits you adopted when you were dating to win over your love partner. Or perhaps all of your conversations seem to end in arguments? Or worse, you might occasionally wonder if your relationship is even worth salvaging.

In a mindful relationship, you are intentional about all your choices and interactions with your partner. You become more proactive in responding to each other’s needs and less reactive to the challenges that often arise. You evolve to a higher level of interaction with one another.

When it comes to teaching kids to behave well, the “why” is as important as the “how.” In Learning to Listen, Learning to Care, children learn why it is important to follow rules and behave considerately toward others. This cultivates empathy, which contributes not just to good behavior, but to academic and social success. By working through the fun and engaging exercises in this book, kids learn how to recognize the impact of their behavior on others, express emotion in appropriate ways, and compromise with family and friends.
Behavioral problems among children are at an all-time high in the US. Parents of nearly 2.7 million children say that their kids suffer from severe emotional or behavioral problems that interfere with their family life or learning. A staggering 50 percent of counseling referrals are for behavioral problems. Empathy is the antidote to many of them, according to child psychologist and author Lawrence Shapiro. In Learning to Listen, Learning to Care, he teaches the empathy and self-control that can reduce behavioral problems and lead to long-term success. This book is appropriate for kids between the ages of six and twelve.
