Permission To Be Tough: Raising Boys To Be Rugged Gentlemen

More than a deeply revealing book, “Permission to be Tough” is a father’s direct response to the need to “raise boys to be rugged gentlemen.

We live in troubled times, and at some level, we as parents must assume a certain level of responsibility for a common endemic of an entitlement mentality, which breeds unacceptable behavior patterns.”

— Tim Austin

MESA, ARIZONA, U.S.A., October 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Parenting is a tough job; kids don't come with instruction booklets! We are living in a social environment that tends to create more feelings of entitlement than respect and boundaries. When it comes to raising sons, the process must include a certain amount of "intentional" actions to teach sons to be gentlemen…in practical ways that fall into the parameters of the age-old saying, "Children learn from what they live." -Tim Austin

Just in time to honor of the Parents as Teachers VIRTUAL 2020 International Conference, “Permission To Be Tough,” bestselling author, Tim Austin, notes, "we live in a troubled world, where raising loving, responsible, young men is a challenge." He takes a deep look at the important issues relevant to raising “rugged gentlemen,” in a world where it is necessary to sometimes give them “permission to be tough.”

Austin asks the difficult questions: Do we, in reality, fail our youth by allowing expectations, which are not within the boundaries of reality?

Do we fail them each time we sweep under the rug problems that may surface because the role of parenting takes too much time or attention?

Do we inadvertently place too much emphasis on – or allow too much demand for – being the center of attention in life?

Tim Austin lives a simple and quiet life on his farm in Paonia, Colorado. He handles the business operations of a growing “retreat” area and volunteers as a high school wrestling coach and EMT for the local ambulance service in the off-season. The author loves spending time with grandchildren who are his pride and joy. The mountains are his favorite place to be: trail hiking, mountain climbing, bear hunting, elk hunting, stream fishing, backpacking, camping, or just sitting in a grove of aspen trees are but a few activities that add spice and adventure to life.

With a fresh perspective of the myriad people who shape a young man’s future, Austin provides insight, humor, and proven wisdom, backed by decades of being a parent and coach…and shows persons of influence in a young man’s life how to provide the kind of innovative, loving guidance young boys need. His book explains exactly what he feels should be expected of our young men, and how some parents inadvertently spoil them rotten. He speaks to the mother’s role to inspire and nurture, whereas a father performs better as role model – as he both affirms and challenges them to be their “best self.”

Austin shares his unique experiences as a child, a father, and an action-oriented leader of children, particularly in sports. His shared experience supports how sports plays a big part in the lives of many young men. and coaches are charged with developing the attitude of a winner. Together with parents and coaches, schools are instrumental in finding the “sweet spot” where boys are kept on a gentle leash – yet learn how to cope in a complicated world. And, in all this mix, “little princes” are sometimes dethroned yet are also provided an opportunity to “borrow courage” until theirs is evolved.

The author puts a wrap on the book by providing a full chapter of activities designed to strategically connect parent and son – and, in the end, give them permission to be tough and become rugged gentlemen. The reader will be challenged and changed by specifics in “Permission to Be Tough” about the current need for more connection with our children – particularly the boys in our charge. Austin’s message and meaning are clear, concise, and well-honed; it is a heart cry for our children that resonates with its readers.

A Foreword by Chad Moore, the Lead Pastor of Sun Valley Community Church in Gilbert, Arizona and testimonials and advance praises by school administrators, athletic coaches, literary agents and the author’s children embrace the powerhouse of Austin’s work as it weaves the pattern of history which brought us to this place—in a book where solutions leap from the pages into the eager hearts of its readers.

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.

Miss Olive was a victim of neglect and health issues, having lost her teeth due to lack of medical attention and one of her legs to cancer. The neglect and illness that she experienced has never affected her loving, gentle spirit; she is always ready for a snuggle. Miss Olive joins Susan Marie at the microphone each week as the co-host of radio show The Doggy Diva Show on Pet Life Radio.

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.”

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

Great Parenting Simplified has supported 40,000 families in over 101 countries, is seeking to expand community-based support to parents and caregivers globally.

We believe that parents need help more than ever,”

— Jacqueline Green, founder and CEO of the nonprofit cooperative, GPS.

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA, September 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The intensity and uncertainty that COVID has brought have impacted everybody. Great Parenting Simplified (GPS) has seen additional calls for support during the pandemic. More and more families are breaking down, with mental illness, coparenting strife including divorce, and a rise of serious behaviour issues.

Many people know families who are struggling but don’t know the best way to help. GPS set up the Pandemic Parenting Movement, for people to come together and let parents know that we acknowledge that parenting is hard, and parenting in a pandemic can be nearly impossible. Parents and caregivers need to know that people understand and that there is a real, tangible village to support them.

“We believe that parents need help more than ever,” said Jacqueline Green, founder and CEO of the nonprofit cooperative, GPS. “Over the past 10 years, we have delivered effective and pragmatic help online, whether it be through community support, training for a specific need such as anxiety or co-parenting, one on one coaching or group support. We know our program is effective and can provide long term solutions.”

People who want to support the movement can go online to https://fundrazr.com/GPS-2020-2H and meet parents who have benefited from finding their GPS. Here people can join the movement and donate to get help themselves, or for someone they know, or put their donation towards general funds for families in need.

The movement seeks to raise $75,000 to train more coaches so that more families can be helped and to help remove financial barriers to taking the program.

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.
