Is your child impossible to control? Have you tried time-out, behavior modification, therapy, medication, all to no avail? If so, you need to read Taming the Wild Child. Psychoanalyst Aaron Lederer has devoted his entire professional life to developing ways for mothers to rescue their out-of-control children. He calls his method "corrective communication" and says, "If you want to change a child, just change the way you communicate with him." In Taming the Wild Child, you will discover how mothers use Lederer's corrective communication to bring about dramatic improvement in their children within just four to six weeks. After a few months, their children typically turn completely around. When you apply these techniques, you will see: Why your child needs some time free of pressure to change. Why punishing backfires and rewarding fails. How to talk to your child in ways that make him want to cooperate. How to get your child to assist in his own recovery. Inspiring and motivating, Taming the Wild Child is filled with real-life examples of harrowing experiences and amazing transformations that will give you the hope and the confidence you need to bring your own lost child home.

DescriptionMolly Cullen is a naive seventeen year old on the brink of the London art scene in the 1960's. Fuelled by dreams of success and fame as an artist, she gains a place at a London art school and it is her dreams that sustain her through the pain and disappointments she faces in the ensuing years. Molly Cullen is a fast-paced tale of a young woman's struggle against tremendous odds. Molly is a survivor but more than that she is a girl who just will not give up. Her tenacity and inner strength help her overcome the loss of innocence and the trials she must face. As Molly comes to terms with, and learns to celebrate, her lesbian identity, the reader travels with her on the roller-coaster ride that is her young life. Molly's thoughts about her world impart a sense of wry humour that tempers the, often painful, experiences described in this semi-autobiographical novel. This book is a testament to the resourcefulness and resilience of the human spirit. About the AuthorBorn in 1947 in Catford, South-East London, Maureen Oliver studied art at Camberwell Art College where she trained as a painter. She has variously been a community artist working in hospitals and day centres; local art projects and with prisoners; a campaigner for lesbian and gay rights and an AIDS activist. She was a founder member of Croydon Women's Centre and became one of the Women's Work group of artists at Brixton Artists Collective in the mid-eighties; as a survivor herself, Maureen was later active in working for the rights of psychiatric survivors. Maureen Oliver has been writing poetry and short stories since childhood, and, in the late nineties, after a long period of being effectively silenced by powerful antipsychotic drugs, she began to write again with renewed passion. She has held a large number of exhibitions of her paintings including in New York in 2007. Maureen Oliver is a lesbian, a mother and grandmother to three small children.

'Entrancing... If ever there was a book to fuel the ecological interest of future generations, this is it. An inspiration for parents, grandparents and teachers, it is equally about showing adults how to recover their own joie de vivre' Isabella Tree, author of Wilding From climbing trees and making dens, to building sandcastles and pond-dipping, many of the activities we associate with a happy childhood take place outdoors. And yet, the reality for many contemporary children is very different. The studies tell us that we are raising a generation who are so alienated from nature that they can't identify the commonest birds or plants, they don't know where their food comes from, they are shuttled between home, school and the shops and spend very little time in green spaces - let alone roaming free. In this timely and personal book, celebrated nature writer Patrick Barkham draws on his own experience as a parent and a forest school volunteer to explore the relationship between children and nature. Unfolding over the course of a year of snowsuits, muddy wellies, and sunhats, Wild Child is both an intimate story of children finding their place in natural world, and a celebration of the delight we can all find in even modest patches of green.

A superb new collection from "a writer who can take you anywhere" (The New York Times) In the title story of this rich new collection, T.C. Boyle has created so vivid and original a retelling of the story of Victor, the feral boy who was captured running naked through the forests of Napoleonic France, that it becomes not just new but definitive: yes, this is how it must have been. The tale is by turns magical and moving, a powerful investigation of what it means to be human. There is perhaps no one better than T.C. Boyle at engaging, shocking, and ultimately gratifying his readers while at the same time testing his characters' emotional and physical endurance. The fourteen stories gathered here display both Boyle's astonishing range and his imaginative muscle. Nature is the dominant player in many of these stories, whether in the form of the catastrophic mudslide that allows a cynic to reclaim his own humanity ("La Conchita") or the wind-driven fires that howl through a high California canyon ("Ash Monday"). Other tales range from the drama of a man who spins Homeric lies in order to stop going to work, to that of a young woman who must babysit for a $250,000 cloned Afghan and the sad comedy of a child born to Mexican street vendors who is unable to feel pain. Brilliant, incisive, and always entertaining, Boyle's short stories showcase the mischievous humor and socially conscious sensibility that have made him one of the most acclaimed writers of our time.

Wild Child by Alan Croghan: a child's journey through crime, punishment and redemption. From the moment his mother went into labour with him - on a transatlantic flight - Alan Croghan's life was chaotic. As a young boy in north Dublin, he drank, took drugs and rarely attended school. What he loved best was stealing cars, driving them around, and swapping parts with his fellow thieves. By the age of sixteen he had accumulated thirty-five criminal convictions - and yet he'd never been locked up. Fearing that his friends suspected he was a police informer, he contrived to get himself imprisoned. Wild Child - published in trade paperback as Disorganised Crime - is the story of this troubled young boy, and of the man he became - a criminal and alcoholic who eventually had the strength and courage to get sober and go straight. Sometimes shocking, often hilarious, and always gripping, Alan Croghan's memoir is both a true-crime classic and an uplifting story of personal redemption. Alan Croghan was born in Dublin in 1968. After abandoning crime, he worked as a national newspaper journalist. Wild Child is his first book. 'An extraordinary story of an extraordinary life' Matt Cooper, The Last Word, Today FM

Through detailed readings of a wide variety of accounts, debates, and representations, Encounters with Wild Children explores the many different meanings these children were given and the varied responses they elicited. Adriana Benzaquén explains why wild children continue to haunt and fascinate Western scientists and shows how the knowledge they have generated in different disciplines, including anthropology, psychology, psychiatry, pedagogy, linguistics, and sociology, has contributed to the shaping and reshaping of the modern understanding of "the child" and affected the social and institutional practices directed at all children in schools, welfare, mental health, and the law.
