I have been using this for years so no surprises that its as good as always. Amazon has a great price so i was happy to save a few dollars. It has a thick rich texture and makes my skin feel soft and supple and young. Its scented with lavender which isn't my favorite but it works so well i can look past the old lady smell.
Even though I'm not a parent, I read Rosalind Wiseman's Queen Bees and Wannabes and loved it. If adults are honest with ourselves, we will see that many times our adult relationships share many features with those of our younger selves. How often have you seen someone post on Facebook regarding their workplace, "I thought I was out of high school!" ? So while these books may have been written to address the issues of adolescents, they are just as applicable to those of us who are long past that age. As Dr. Phil said the other day, we as adult talk about kids as though we have had nothing to do with who they turn out to be.
Wiseman is aptly named (well, she would be a wise woman, but I digress.) She has really paid attention to the interactions between kids, between girls, between boys, between parents, and between parents and kids. Of course Queen Bees resonated with me because I'm a girl and I've been in both the bullied and the bully position as a kid and probably yes, as an adult, as much as I hate to admit it (about being the bully.) I wasn't diagnosed with ADD until the ripe old age of 41, and having untreated ADD means that my reactions and comments were sometimes said in the heat of the moment, without thought. Now that I'm being treated, I no longer have that issue.
With Masterminds and Wingmen, this was a fascinating look into Boy World. Now, I had already figured out some things on my own. I was raised to believe that boys didn't have the same kind of relationships or feelings that girls do. But I noticed that a lot of men did have those kind of friendships with both men and women. And so it led me to believe (correctly) that many of the stereotypes I'd been told about men and women were incorrect. As Wiseman points out, just because a boy says he's fine, it doesn't necessarily mean that he is. There is much more going on than meets the eye.
Wiseman offers up a lot of tools for dealing with just about every situation that could come up - and these are ones that adults could use as well. How often do we tell employees to "Do the right thing" or "Be a good employee" without defining what those are? As humans we approach everything from a point of our own experiences and history - which means that we end up holding people to standards they may not have encountered before. It's the same thing when we tell kids to "Do the right thing" or "Don't get into trouble" without laying out the parameters of what that means.
She also uses a strategy called SEAL,which assists with conflict resolution. This is another technique adult could use.
1. Stop and Set it Up: Assess the situation, i.e what happened? Should I confront the person now or later?
2. Explain: State the problem and what you would like to happen or do.
3. Affirm and Acknowledge: Affirm your right to be treated with dignity and acknowledge anything you've done to contribute to the issue.
4. Lock in (or out): Determine the status of the relationship going forward.
I also love that she points out that when you ask someone else what their perception is, "you must be ready to be changed by what you hear." To me, that's one of the most powerful statements. Because if you're not truly ready to hear something, you won't be able to accept what the other person is saying and you won't be able to see their point of view.
Some highlights (there's no way I can share all of the great moments in this book - I have 26 pages of highlights.)
*The closest we've come to recognizing boys' issues is in our discussions of teen suicides, which we generally attribute to homophobia and lack of gun control.
*What's way more useful for boys is to talk to them about integrity looks like to you under duress.
*He isn't running to play that video game for no reason. He's running to distract himself from the shame he feels that he was ridiculed for his body, from his deeply wired believe that he can't tell you what happened, and it feels good to shoot something that he can pretend is his tormentor.
*My colleagues in college admissions tell me that the ratio of male applicants to female applicants has continued to weaken so much that now they believe that for every eight qualified female applicants there are only two male applicants....So while people are worried about racial affirmative action, the biggest affirmative action problem is right in front of us.
*No matter how physically hurt he is, Batman shakes it off If he's angry, he either clenches his jaw or exacts revenge with utter physical domination.
*It's about understanding that power and privilege are at work when one person believes he has the right to speak for everyone and no one contradicts him.
*To equate speaking out about abuse of power and social injustice with being sexually attracted to other men makes no sense. If it did, heterosexual men would be defined as those who do nothing or who join in when someone's being abused. Then only gay men would have the courage to stand up.
*Our boys deserve meaningful relationships, the freedom to pursue what interests and challenges them, a feeling of belonging and social connection to others, and a sense that they're contributing to something larger than themselves. Those four criteria make up the definition of happiness.
*From the moment our children realize they are separate entities from us and realize that we will often stop them from doing what they want, they carefully study us to figure out how to get their way.
*We are forced to come face-to-face with our acceptance of violence as entertainment in other areas. Since many of us find that hard to acknowledge, we point to video games as the problem.
*There is no video game in history that can approach the level or intensity of violence present in the Old Testament.
*If he gets caught violating a technology or alcohol or drug policy, he (and even you) may think the rules are stupid or unfairly applied, but he agreed to those rules by becoming a participating member of the community.
*"What is the difference between what you do and who you are? If you repeat certain types of disrespectful or dishonest actions, at what point do you become a disrespectful or dishonest person?"
*Kids, including the most entitled and abusive athletes, don't go after other kids unless they know that adult "leaders" in their school don't or can't hold them accountable.
*You can't take away someone's experience, but you can say that his personal experience doesn't reflect the reality of all girls, and you should advise him not to make it generalized blanket statements.
If I had the funds, I would buy this for everyone I know. I really can't think of a single person, group, or company that wouldn't benefit from this.
My son is 10 months old, and we've had it since he was 5 months old. It was great at the younger ages because it supported his back better than a regular restaurant high chair would. We took it to most restaurants. It doesn't work well on a two-person tabletop, but works great on most 4 person+ tables. We also bring it to the grandparents' or friends' homes to use when feeding him. It's super easy and fast to hook onto the table, and I love that the carrying bag is attached to the chair, so you can never lose it! It wipes clean fairly easily. Now that he's getting closer to a year old, I find that we want to make sure to only attach it to very solid (none jiggly) tables because when he starts squirming, he can also shake the table and everything on it! Still, it's a great chair and I'm glad that we bought it!
I bought this vacuum cleaner after using a friend's Dyson because I liked the idea of a bagless but wasn't about to spend $500.00 for one. I LOVE THIS VACUUM CLEANER and the Dyson is a real clunker compared to it.
The Shark is so lightweight that it almost feels self propelled-the Dyson is a heavy, heavy monster.
The cord is extra long so that you can do several rooms without having to find a new outlet. The suction is fantastic, I have two collies that shed all year around and this vacuum handles the hair just fine. Because it's so lightweight, it's easy to actually use the long nozzle and attachments even going up stairs.
Don't worry about changing the adjustment-I go straight from carpet onto wood and ceramic floors with no problems or damage.
Now I actually feel a little sorry for my friend with the Dyson-he paid a lot of money for a heavy, awkward and expensive machine just to get the name.
