Lessons from Turtle Island
Author: Guy Jones
Format: Paperback
  • This is a great resource for those who are just beginning to work with Aboriginal children and are concerned about teaching with authenticity. This resource very firmly guides educators through what is considered appropriate, and what isn't, from an Aboriginal perspective in the classroom. Therefore it could be easily taken the wrong way and I would recommend that while using this resource that you openly have conversation with your Aboriginal Education staff about what you're reading. Currently several of the Aboriginal titles are out of print but they are such well known books that they likely can be found in your DRC. -Terri

Parenting... With a Twist
Format: Paperback
  • Your children didn’t come with an instructional manual. Until now.

    In an era when the majority of children are not asking what they want to be when they grow but instead what they want to be when they give up, Parenting...With A Twist will help you raise hopeful, thriving, engaged and confident children.

    Building a great relationship with your child, and making them success-ready, is an important part of allowing them to become self-sufficient and happy. Instead of using punitive measures, discover the magic in getting to know your child, and fall back in love with them at every age.

    Learn why it’s important for your child to say “no”, and even lie to you. Explore not allowing school grades to define your child, and understand all of your child’s behaviours, especially the ones that drive you the most insane.

    Using our Success...With A Twist system, you will be able to do your own Parenting Skills Assessment. Do you spend enough quality time with your child? Is your household set up for success? Are you able to navigate the school system with piece of mind? Do you like the child you love? Included are many hands-on and interactive tools, to empower you to discover the positive parent within.

    "A good friend told me, when I was pregnant with my first child, that it’s not how much you save for your children for their first car, house, marriage, schooling, or whatever you deem as important — it’s how much you save for them for counselling because no matter what you do as a parent, you somehow mess it up! We are here to help you mess it up a little less!” Amber Scotchburn

    If you sometimes feel like you want to curl up into a cocoon and not parent anymore? Then, be prepared for something amazing and wonderful — look at what happens when caterpillars come out of their cocoons! You too can transform into the parent you’ve always wanted to be!
