With all the hype over parenting styles, we must remember, Parents Are People Too
An adaptable emotional fitness training program for parents

Every parent can recall a point where their children have driven them to the breaking point. Whether it’s coming home to a moody teen with a new piercing; a toddler tantrum at the checkout; or a colicky baby’s incessant crying: every parent can relate to those moments where it all seems too much and negative feelings take over. In fact, every day has its up and downs as a parent.

The new eBook, ‘Parents Are People Too – An Emotional Fitness Program for Parents’, helps parents gain control of negative feelings. The ability to control negative feelings is what the author means by emotional fitness—doing so is key to being a good parent.

“Children scare, anger, and hurt parents, and when parents don’t handle their fear, anger, or hurt properly, children suffer; hurt accumulates and negative exchanges mount. Often the ties that bind become strained and sometimes severed. Avoiding this stress and strain takes many emotional fitness skills. Most parents have some of the requisite skills; this book teaches additional skills and helps you improve those you already possess. Everyone can learn to take better care of their feelings so that neither children nor parents suffer unnecessarily.”

The emotional fitness skills taught in the book include feeling awareness, self-soothing, distracting, focusing on what is important, disputing, giving feedback, proper expression of feelings, acceptance, and radical acceptance. In addition to these skills, the book contains numerous exercises designed to strengthen each skill. The final chapter describes Twelve Daily Exercises. These are specifically designed to improve emotional fitness. The promise of the book is that learning and practicing these exercises will enable parents to take charge of their feelings and enjoy the journey of parenting more.

If the title of professional parent were ever permitted, it would be due to the author, Katherine Gordy Levine. Mother, grandmother and foster parent to almost 400 troubled teens, she is also an accredited therapist, a Professor of Social Work at Columbia University, Director of mental health crisis programs for children, 30+ years of social work experience and 20+ years working as a professional speaker on parenting and emotional fitness topics.

Katherine remarks about her time as a foster parent, “One of the most important lessons was realizing that when I handled my feelings properly, I handled the kids better. I never found a book devoted to helping me handle my feelings so I could be a better parent. I decided, therefore, to write this book.”

Katherine is a prolific writer who shares her wisdom on her blogs, Parents Are People Too and Emotional Fitness Training Inc (EFTI). 2012 has seen the publication of 4 books (so far):

1-Parents Are People Too – An Emotional Fitness Program for Parents
2-When Good Kids Do Bad Things – A Survival Guide for Parents of Teenagers
3-Tame the Test Anxiety Monster
4-How to Hold Successful Family Meetings

About the Author:  Hannah Hoobyar

Hannah, otherwise known as Yoga Bear, has been an active child her entire life. After some traumatic experiences in her young childhood Hannah turned to Yoga as a way to help calm herself and deal with the stresses of life. If it weren’t for yoga Hannah would have had a much more difficult time getting through some of her challenges. Moving forward as she grew and matured she found yoga offered her a calmness in the face of daily challenges of being a kid…friends, school, homework, etc. She often uses yoga to calm herself before a test, to stay in control of her emotions throughout the trials and tribulations of middle school, and to keep her body in top shape for her competitive dance.
People who know her consider her to possess a unique energy that draws others in. Her personality is infectious, she can make you smile just by sharing a room with you. Her heart is very giving, and it is that giving nature that drives her to create her website and share yoga with others. She hopes to create a DVD of some basic yoga that she used when she was young and share that with other young children who are dealing with traumatic issues in their lives.  Yoga has changed her life and she is hoping to share that with others.

Christians: A Guide to Healing and
Overcoming Life’s Challenges

Even as a faithful Christian, there may be times when you feel that there is no hope of escaping issues and themes in your life that ensnare and trip you up time and time again. When a certain pattern of behavior or type of suffering has been following you all your life, it’s hard to believe that you can ever escape from it.

Christians with Pervasive Issues shows us that every child of God can be delivered from issues that cause them to be a victim, rather than walking in victory. In compassionate, no-nonsense language, Annie Brown demonstrates that with genuine repentance, using God’s principles, and the right counseling/support, you can overcome anything.

Christians with Pervasive Issues gives you the ray of hope you need in order to heal your life, and get closer to God.
