Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends
Receives Top Honors From National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA)

The Second Miss Olive Book in The Doggy Diva Diaries Trilogy Recognized for its Anti-Bullying Message

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends was recognized by the National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA). The prestigious award is respected and trusted by parents worldwide and is the ultimate source for education professionals seeking the best products and books for children. The second book in The Doggy Diva Diaries trilogy continues the story of a little Italian Greyhound named Miss Olive, who is rescued from an animal shelter into a foster family and then happily finds her loving ‘furever’ home.

Written by Susan Marie and Miss Olive herself, and Illustrated by Rebekah Phillips and Kim Ranson, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends has Miss Olive learning that when faced with bullying, her superpower is kindness, and that it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside. It’s the kindness and love you have on the inside that counts.

“I’m thrilled and honored that the education professionals, parents and children who read Miss Olive’s book for NAPPA connected with her journey,” said author Susan Marie. “We could all learn to be more kind and that’s exactly what Miss Olive is all about. When you approach new people with an open heart and an open mind, you just might make a ‘furever’ friend!”

Recommended for ages four through nine, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, with its anti-bullying message, shows children that making an effort to be kind is how to make lasting friendships. Miss Olive realizes that true friends will stick by her and won’t join in with taunts from bullies. She is thrilled to discover that she not only has a “furever” home, but she has “furever” friends as well.

Throughout its more than thirty years in existence, the NAPPA Awards has sought to find and showcase the best toys, baby and family products and books. As one of the longest-running awards programs in the country, NAPPA ensures that parents purchase the highest-quality products that help them connect and enjoy time with their families.

Sex Power Couple Jet Setting Jasmine and King Noire to Stream Live “Kink for Lovers” at the Legendary Folsom Fair

Sex Power Couple King Noire & Jet Setting Jasmine Teach Kink for Lovers at Tomorrow’s Folsom Fair

Margaret Cho Will Be Hosting Folsom Fair 2020

Hosted by Margaret Cho Sunday, September 27

The first question we ask is, ‘How did you first learn about sex?'”

— Jet Setting Jasmine

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, September 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sex power couple Jet Setting Jasmine and King Noire will be streaming worldwide for “Kink for Lovers,” live on Sunday, September 27 at the legendary Folsom Fair 2020 hosted by actor/comedian/activist Margaret Cho 11am – 6pm PT at www.folsomstreetfair.org

Hot off the heels of their Huffington Post interview, The Porn Industry Has A White Supremacy Problem. Meet The Couple Working To Fix It: King Noire and Jet Setting Jasmine want to decolonize Black and brown bodies in the adult film industry, the happily-married, sex-positive couple will be sharing their knowledge on how you can achieve a loving, safe and respectful relationship while enjoying kink and playing with others.

“The first question we ask is, ‘How did you first learn about sex?’” Jet Setting Jasmine said to Huffington Post. “Everyone starts with some sort of pornographic material, even if it’s an intimate scene in a mainstream film. In this small sort of research study, we already see the way people unintentionally learn about sex is through entertainment and media. And when you’re learning about people’s bodies and reactions from that alone, you’re incredibly limited in how you see people of color.”

Dr. Dookie is a highly sought-after thought leader in his field and his loyal client base looks to him for trusted counsel and sage advice. His enthusiastic approach to modern psychology is paired with his vast knowledge regarding neuroplasticity and biblical meditation practices.

Dr. Courtney Dookie is a speaker, coach, and mentor for over 17 years. He does workshops and seminars on the following topics: How God designs the mind, parenting your child's mind, healing the mind and brain through biblical Meditation, how prayer transforms the mind, and God's plan to restore the mind the ten principles for mind growth. He is the author of two books, Neuroplasticity: Healing the Brain from Psychological Disorders through Biblical Meditation and Christian Contemplative Meditation Practice: How Biblical Contemplative Practice Facilitates Neuroplasticity in Adults who have Experienced Developmental Trauma.

On September 20th, Dr. Dookie hosted a Virtual book launch at 2:00PM-4:30MST.

His new book, “Neuroplasticity: Healing the Brain from Psychological Disorders Through Biblical Meditation” is not your average self-help book. The book discusses the utilization of biblical contemplative practice in facilitating neuroplasticity in adults who experience psychological disorders. It examines psychological disorder from four perspectives, these are: spiritual faculty, physiological faculty, psychological faculty, and relational faculty. These four faculties are the foundation of the mind. Having chaos or rigidity in any one faculty will lead to disintegration in the central nervous system, which inevitably leads to mental distress. This book demonstrates from scientific research how to use prayer and Biblical meditations to heal the brain from psychological distress, such as trauma, anxiety, depression, and addictions. In addition, the following areas are covered in the book: “The mind: God’s design”, “parent-child relationship and its impact on brain development”, “insecure attachment and how it affects the brain”, and “God, attachment and the brain”. It looks at how God changes the brain through the process of neuroplasticity.

Dr. Courtney Dookie demonstrated how to use biblical meditation and prayer to:

1. Improve memory, focus and concentration
2. Regulate emotions associated with trauma, depression, and anxiety
3. Manage crisis and adapt to the crisis moment
4. Increases empathy for self, others and our community
5. Improve interpersonal connections between spouses, friends, families, and co-workers
6. Develop a closer connection with God and help us to understand His will for our lives
7. Heal the brain from the damage caused by trauma
8. Change the structure and function of the negative impact of development trauma/childhood trauma
9. Reconstruct negative thought patterns, regulate emotions, and transform lives
10. Helps you to understand your purpose and live life to your full potential

Dr. Dookie is married to Sania Dookie, and they have two beautiful children, Raziela and Mikael. He is a Registered Provisional Clinical Psychologist with Alberta College of Psychologist and a member of the Psychologist Association of Alberta. He is passionate about helping individuals find real transformation and renewing of their minds. He is the founder of Mind Renewal Ministry and currently serves as a clinical psychologist in his private practice Dookies’ Psychological Services in Northern Alberta. He has his Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis on developmental trauma. He achieved his BA in Theology at Northern Caribbean University, Jamaica, and MA in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy at Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada.

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA, September 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The intensity and uncertainty that COVID has brought have impacted everybody.

Many people know families who are struggling but don’t know the best way to help.

Award-Winning STEM Picture Book About Animals Now Available in Spanish

Así crezco cover image

Así crezco, the Spanish edition of This Is How I Grow, will be released by Science Naturally on October 7.

Así crezco bat illustration

Stunning illustrations share the stories of eight mammal babies.

Panoramic illustrations showcase family bonding and early science education for Spanish-speaking children and dual-language classrooms.

The intricate illustrations capture and expand a child's awareness of scientific detail, from the specificities of habitats to the physical, emotional, and environmental changes animals undergo.”

— Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, professor of Hispanic studies, Vassar College

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Science Naturally is thrilled to announce that their newest animal-themed book, This Is How I Grow, is now also available in Spanish as Así crezco.

The animal stories in Así crezco celebrate what unites all mammals, while fostering empathy, kindness, and compassion in their young readers. As the newest book in the Beginnings collection, Así crezco introduces readers to eight different animal ambassadors from habitats around the globe.

This beautiful book conveys that childhood is the period of time where mammals must rely on their family and community. In two-page vignettes, each mammal baby soliloquizes on their birth, nursing, and weaning experiences before exploring the incredible variety of skills they must learn in order to survive and thrive. From bats learning how to fly to elephants gaining control of their trunks, animal mothers and others in the community help their young develop the tools they need to hunt, forage, or scavenge. This is an engaging approach for children ages 7–10 who are just starting to explore what it means to be “all grown up.”

According to Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, professor of Hispanic studies at Vassar College, “The intricate illustrations capture and expand a child's awareness of scientific detail, from the specificities of habitats to the physical, emotional, and environmental changes animals undergo.” And Don Wilson, from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, says, “This book provides nicely illustrated and scientifically accurate, but easily absorbed stories about familiar animals."

Así crezco also helps bring valuable life science concepts into the homes and classrooms of English language learners (ELL’s). Studies show that science teachers who don't speak Spanish can still effectively teach ELLs if they provide their students with materials translated to their native language. Additionally, a 2014 case study of ELLs in science class revealed that providing translated materials can be important “as a tool towards understanding and gaining fluency in academic English.”

Author Dia L. Michels says, “We know that there's a scarcity of adequate Spanish-language STEM resources. This is an extreme disservice to Spanish-speaking students and those from mixed-language families. We hope this book will be one small step toward closing that gap.”

The original English book (This is How I Grow, March 2020) received a Book of the Year award from Creative Child Magazine, a Feathered Quill Book Award, and a Brain Child award.

The back of the book contains questions that encourage readers to delve more deeply into the visual text. These reference pages allow parents and educators to address the questions young scientists are likely to ask as they explore the pages. An extensive Teacher’s Guide, available for free download, provides further information, hands-on activities, and articulations to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), making this book an invaluable science resource.

Author Dia L. Michels is an award-winning science and parenting writer who has authored or edited over a dozen books for both children and adults. This is her fourth book exploring science topics through animal stories. Studying mammals has helped her appreciate the simplicity and importance of attachment parenting and breastfeeding. The mother of three grown children, she lives in Washington D.C.

Wesley Davies is an artist from New England who specializes in illustration and comic art. He received a B.A. in anthropology from Kenyon College, earning Phi Beta Kappa honors. He provided spot drawings for Platypus Media’s 2018 publication Babies Nurse. This book marks his debut as a children’s book illustrator.

Your Baby Club Offering Deals to Expectant and New Mothers

An industry leader in providing the best selection of mother and baby promotions, offers and competitions, is calling out to all expectant and new mothers.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Representatives with Your Baby Club announced today that it is now offering samples and discounts to expectant and new mothers.

“We started Your Baby Club to be able to create value for mums and their families,” said Alec Dobbie, CEO and Co-founder of Your Baby Club, a company that has been recognized as the fastest-growing mums network in the UK, as well as the fastest-growing network of new and expectant mums in the U.S.

Your Baby Club, operated by FanFinders, works with the biggest and best brands in the mother and baby world to bring incredible offers, competitions, content, discounts, vouchers and more.

Dobbie explained that by joining Your Baby Club, expectant and new mothers gain access to everything they need for their little one in one place.

“We hope to continue connecting new mums with products from leading brands over the coming years,” Dobbie said.

The small, dedicated team at Your Baby Club, Dobbie stressed, is trying to create a place for mums to come and find the best new freebies, samples, competitions, vouchers, real parenting stories, expert tips and advice, quality content, parenting magazines, catalogues, apps and new websites for mums, and much more besides – all in one place.

As for how it works: Simply sign-up with your name and email address, look through the great offers and click on the ones you like. Some offers will need details such as an address and phone number, however, once Your Baby Club has these details, you will never have to input them again.

“Some of these freebies will be available elsewhere, and some will be exclusive to us,” Dobbie pointed out, before adding, “Even the offers that are available elsewhere are easy to claim directly on our site. You can choose exactly which offers you like the look of rather than signing up for everything. Your email inbox is busy enough as it is.”

How to Help Your Kid Get Better Sleep

Children and Teens who need more quality sleep

Quality sleep in children and teens aids in not only physical health, but mental health and well-being as well!

Sleep is a basic human need – not just for our physical bodies, but also for our mental health.”

— Dr. Donna Poppendieck

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Most of us know how important sleep is to anyone … without enough sleep and without enough quality sleep, you can find yourself suffering the consequences, whether you realize it or not. You may not be sleeping soundly, and you may not be getting into the different types of sleep everyone needs (think REM sleep and dreaming – essential to our overall health).

Sleep is a basic human need – not just for our physical bodies, but also for our mental health.

But enough about you. What about your children and teens? Children ages 6 to 12 need 9 to 12 hours, and teens 13 to 18 need 8 to 10 hours of good quality sleep. (The average teen only gets 7 to 7.5 hours.)

A teen’s natural sleep hormone melatonin is produced later at night, so they may have a harder time falling asleep at a reasonable time. Since they must usually get up early for school, they may have unintended consequences like trouble concentrating and lower grades. If they are driving, they may be drowsy while doing so. They may experience anxiety and depression as a result – they may even have thoughts of suicide.

As for younger children, starting as early as 3 months of age, higher levels of melatonin are produced at night, and lower levels are secreted during the daytime. In spite of this, up to 25% of healthy children have insomnia, and for those kids with neurodevelopmental and psychological disorders, about 75% experience insomnia. Kids also have trouble focusing, they are often hyperactive, irritable, have poor memories, feel anxious and depressed, and experience learning difficulties. All of which are reflected in their school performance.

What can you do?

Everybody – including kids and teens – needs vitamin D. It may also be helpful to take iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, B vitamins, valerian, vitamin E, chamomile, and the amino acid theanine. Always work with a competent health care professional if you want to supplement with melatonin (even though you can purchase it over the counter).

Nix the soda, cakes, cookies, over-reliance on bread and pasta, etc. So, make sure you help your kids and teens dial back on the junk food. Also – read labels of products you purchase for your children – added chemicals for preserving or any other reason may be detrimental for their overall health, including their sleep patterns. If you want to purchase gummy vitamins please be aware that there is usually a significant amount of sugar in them, so these may not be the best choice.
However, if you improve the quality of their diets, especially in the salad and veggie department, you may be able to get most of these supplemental assists from the food itself!

Other tips for improving sleep are to turn off all screens at an earlier hour, make sure kids and teens get enough exercise, avoid eating close to bedtime, ensure bedrooms are dark, maintain a regular sleep schedule, avoid afternoon naps (or at least limit them to 15-20 minutes) as kids start getting older, limit caffeine intake (think chocolate, colas, coffee, etc.) and especially don’t eat or drink them at night. They’re stimulants! When summer break is coming to an end, and before school starts, begin setting an earlier-to-bed schedule.

If your child or teen seems troubled, and especially if they’re not talking to you about it, don’t hesitate to try some mental health counseling. You, as parents, can also take a look at your parenting style and see if you can improve your skills which may help your kids even more.

As always – have a happy, holistically healthy day!
