Building a life in foster homes and rebelling a few times to be close to a brother and then a sister led to a life not finishing high school, of care-free money and eventually juvenile detention to hard-core prison. Prison, yes! Scary, yes! Yes, to a scrawny kid with no education and no direction. Luckily, while in prison he found the right friends, combining that with a strong will to succeed and the raw energy to try something new. He achieved many goals from a high school diploma to being a world-renowned weightlifter, still holding the US 630# Dead Lift Title. He won every match he attempted, set over forty-five records, and was the only inmate to be flown out of state for a meet in Colorado. While accomplishing these feats in prison, he had to cope with different personalities and temperaments.

Not many women can claim to have changed history, but Nafis Sadik set that goal in her youth, and change the world she did. Champion of Choice tells the remarkable story of how Sadik, born into a prominent Indian family in 1929, came to be the world’s foremost advocate for women’s health and reproductive rights, the first female director of a United Nations agency, and “one of the most powerful women in the world” (London Times). An obstetrician, wife, mother, and devout Muslim, Sadik has been a courageous and tireless advocate for women, insisting on discussing the difficult issues that impact their lives: education, contraception, abortion, as well as rape and other forms of violence. After Sadik joined the fledgling UN Population Fund in 1971, her groundbreaking strategy for providing females with education and the tools to control their own fertility has dramatically influenced the global birthrate. This book is the first to examine Sadik’s contribution to history and the unconventional methods she has employed to go head-to-head with world leaders to improve millions of women’s lives. Interspersed between the chapters recounting Sadik’s life are vignettes of females around the globe who represent her campaign against domestic abuse, child marriage, genital mutilation, and other human rights violations. With its insights into the political, religious, and domestic battles that have dominated women’s destinies, Sadik’s life story is as inspirational as it is dramatic.

How To Be A Parent Champion And Add Magic To Your Family

Every purchaser has free access to monthly community calls to share challenges, successes and practice new skills as they work through the book. Parent Child Relationships are tricky to understand, and gradual changes in your relationship with your child can go unnoticed. Children's behaviour and attitudes can make parents feel remote and unheard, at a loss to understand their child's performance at school, their child's lack of attention, self-care or respect for others. Desperate to provide the best life chance's for their child, parents are often advised to focus on the child, but the harder the parent tries to help, the harder the child pushes back. As their child grows, a happy family life becomes a more distant memory. Rebellious teenage years may be traditional, but a bad relationship with your teenager is not inevitable. You can be happy and comfortable being a natural parent, seeing your children from a different perspective, capable and confident in meeting challenges. Schools Aware Campaign Alan Wilson's second book How to be a Parent Champion and add magic to your family is the lynchpin of the approach he's bringing to schools, helping them to let parents know there is a way to contribute to improving their child's outlook, that they don't have to rely entirely on the resources of the school to manage behaviour and attitudes to learning and attainment. That perhaps, it isn't necessary for behaviour to attract the attention of specialists before you can improve the attention and behaviour of your child. If you're a parent, teacher or governor and think your school would welcome an approach to explain how we can work together to promote strong parent child relationships as a method for behavioural change, increased engagement and attainment, please contact Alan at [email protected] and he'll prioritise accordingly! It's more than a self-help book because it comes with free ongoing support at http: //parentchildrelationships.co.uk/

This work takes an in-depth look at the world of comic books through the eyes of a Native American reader and offers frank commentary on the medium's cultural representation of the Native American people. It addresses a range of portrayals, from the bloodthirsty barbarians and noble savages of dime novels, to formulaic secondary characters and sidekicks, and, occasionally, protagonists sans paternal white hero, examining how and why Native Americans have been consistently marginalized and misrepresented in comics. Chapters cover early representations of Native Americans in popular culture and newspaper comic strips, the Fenimore Cooper legacy, the "white" Indian, the shaman, revisionist portrayals, and Native American comics from small publishers, among other topics.
