Pride and Joy: The Lives and Passions of Women Without Children is a collection of interviews with 25 women who have chosen not to have children. In lively stories and vivid voices, these diverse narrators talk proudly of their contributions to their communities, causes, and families, and they speak joyfully of intimate relationships with husbands and partners, of family and friends, work, volunteer and leisure activities, solitude, and connections with children. Their stories dispel the social myth that women must have children to be happy, and they debunk the stereotypes of childless women. For the 20 percent of U.S. women who are currently childless by choice or by chance, Pride and Joy offers validation and community. For the millions of women deciding whether to have children, it provides inspiration. For parents, siblings, and friends of women who have chosen or may choose not to have children, it offers insight.

Pride and Joy

A Guide to Understanding Your Child's Emotions and Solving Family Problems

Pride and Joy is a different kind of parenting book. In Pride and Joy, child psychologist Kenneth Barish brings together the best of recent advances in clinical and neuroscience research with the author's three decades of experience working with children and families. He shows how a deeper appreciation of our children's emotions offers parents a new understanding of their children's development and better solutions to the problems in their lives. Barish offers advice to parents on how we can restore more joyfulness and pride in our relationships with our children and how we can help children bounce back from disappointment and defeat. He shows how we can repair family relationships that have been damaged by frequent anger and resentment and how we can preserve our children's idealism and their concern for others--how we can raise children who feel good about themselves and also care about the needs and feelings of others. Barish also offers advice on how to solve problems of daily family life--establishing rules and limits, doing homework and going to sleep, winning and losing at games, our children's reluctance to talk to us, their tantrums and lack of motivation, and their addiction to television and video games. He presents down-to-earth recommendations for solving these common family problems--problems that too often erode the joyfulness of our children and our pleasure in being parents. Pride and Joy is both informative and highly practical, and a balanced answer to the extreme methods that too often dominate parenting debates. Few parenting books address the central issues of concern to today's parents while also offering parents as much day-to-day advice.

children's portraits in the Netherlands, 1500-1700

The wonderful portraits of children that Dutch and Flemish artists painted in the late Renaissance and Baroque periods offer a fascinating look not just at the youngsters themselves -- along with their clothes, toys, and pets -- but also at the society in which they lived. The charming pictures in this unique book demonstrate that 500 years ago children were, as they are now, their parents' pride and joy.At first glance, these young people in their elaborate clothing and fancy headgear hardly resemble modern youth. But their fresh faces and vivid expressions transcend time. Superb full-page color-plates reproduce 85 of the best of these portraits -- by famous and lesser-known artists alike -- while essays by leading art and cultural historians set them in context. Countless parents have formal portraits or studio photographs made of their children. For them, as well as for art lovers and students, Pride and Joy should hold an irresistible fascination.

The Cowboy's Pride And Joy - Maureen Child All former marine Jake Hunter wants is peace and quiet. But when his business-minded mother sends her assistant Cassidy Moore to see him about a long-standing family dispute, chaos ensues. Their attraction rages out of control as a snowstorm strands them on his Montana ranch. Flash-forward fourteen months and Cassie can't bring herself to tell Jake she's had his child. But when his mother interferes again, Cassie rushes back just in time for another blizzard – and for the Christmas spirit to open one reclusive cowboy's heart. Barefoot Blue Jean Night - Debbi Rawlins The moment she sees the ad for Sundance Dude Ranch, travel blogger Jamie Daniels can't resist booking. After all, a week of fresh air and scenery will do her good... especially if that scenery includes Cole McAllister's very fine backside! Cole's not thrilled about playing host to hordes of ogling women. But when he's wrangled into showing Jamie the ropes, his reluctance is conspicuously absent. In fact, there's nothing he'd like more than giving Jamie a cowboy experience she won't ever forget... Montana Refuge - Alice Sharpe The last person Montana rancher Tyler Hunt expected to see on his ranch was his soon-to-be ex-wife. One look in her eyes, however, and he knew Julie was in desperate need of his help. She'd left Tyler fearing the loss of her identity. But that desire for independence had caused her life to be put in jeopardy and Tyler was the only man she could trust. Yet even as the mystery surrounding her new life brought them back together, a secret from Tyler's own past was threatening their reunion. Would they ever have the chance to recapture the bond they'd once shared?
