Divorce is a painful time, in the very best of cases. It is emotionally gut-wrenching, especially when there are children involved. There are no winners, just survivors.

Positive Parenting 101 was written to help divorcing parents understand and respond constructively to the needs of their children during this confusing, painful time in their lives. With this practical guide in your hands you will be able to:

- Learn 4 different parenting styles and select which ones are most effective for you
- Understand and respond to the needs of all children at different ages
- Develop strategies for interacting with your divorcing spouse regarding the children, in order to maintain a constructive parenting atmosphere
- Identify effective ways to help kids manage their emotions and process grief, anxiety and anger appropriately during the divorce process and afterwards

These--and many other helpful topics addressed in this handbook--provide divorcing parents with the tools they need to be great parents, even during the chaos divorce can create. Their children will have the security and love they need to survive and thrive!

"This simple, helpful handbook is written in a way that is easy to understand and easy to use. I command my friend, James A. (Jim) Baker, for once again developing a thorough and very helpful resource that is going to help a lot of people live saner, safer lives"

Leslie compares choosing a direction for your life with going to a train station and deciding which train will take you to your desired destination.

The ticket for every destination in life is commitment. "Are you required to remain only on one train all your life?" students ask Leslie. "Of course not," he reassures them. "You may return to the depot at any time to pick a new train, or you may re-board old trains you once took but left earlier."

To help young people decide on a destination, this award-winning teacher developed and refined the exercises shared in Success Express for Teens. Throughout the book, the brief, action-oriented activities pose the questions "What should I do next?", "How?" and "What's in it for me?" After describing the goal of the activity, Leslie then leaves room to respond to specific instructions and reflect on how the knowledge can be put to immediate use in real life.

Inspired by Leslie's personal struggle with depression as a teen, and refined during eleven years of classroom "testing" with real teens, the lessons learned from the activities ring true. Leslie hopes each participant's journey will be like a swift ride on an express train to success. "We achieve by doing. We learn by living." says Leslie.
"These 50 self-guided activities empower teens to determine personal strengths, choose a direction for success, and make dynamic strides toward realizing their biggest dreams."
~ Mary Lue Summerlin, Ed.D.
Director of Psychological Services
Deer Park, TX ISD

The activities are set up to encourage teenagers to clarify their highest ambitions, identify wise risks, and develop motivation that will help make them self-starters and keep them focused on their goals--even in the face of adversity. Leslie subtly teaches students about their dynamic relationship with life and the empowering role they play in any destiny to which they aspire.

Teens can take their journey to success independently by completing the suggested activities on their own. In addition, the book has a helpful appendix for teachers, counselors, group leaders and parents which details ways to turn each of the 50 activitities into shared group experiences for five to fifty teens. So, whether alone or with their peers, teens can board the Success Express and move toward identifying and realizing their dreams.

A prolific author, editor, teacher, librarian, national YA book reviewer, and motivational speaker, Roger Leslie uses original and dynamic techniques in his writing workshops, self esteem building seminars, and customized presentations. Besides articles, essays, and reviews, his published works include a history book, the three volume Library Programs that Inspire series (c)2001-2002), and a novel Drowning in Secret (Absey & Co, (c)2002). His writings and teachings have earned him awards from writing organizations, school districts, Chambers of Commerce, state universities and national education groups.

This book is a man's guide to recovering from divorce and starting a new life. Written from the viewpoint of psychologists, the book uses a question and answer format to give men straight advice on how to minimize conflict, reduce harm to children, and start new relationships. The format enables the reader to choose just those sections that are applicable or of most interest. The emphasis of this book is not on legal pitfalls, but on how men can manage the psychological issues inherent in a divorce. The authors give extensive coaching to men in how to begin dating again, the nature of sexuality post-divorce, and making choices that can lead to a successful future marriage.

What about Me?
Practical advice for every man dealing with divorce.


Face it. When it comes to getting your life back together after divorce, most of the great advice out there is geared toward women. Sure, there’s no end of advice for men about financial and legal concerns. But, what about YOU personally—your adjustment to a new kind of life, your uncertainty about how to start over. Your time has come! Whether you are newly separated or finalized your divorce last year, The Guys-Only-Guide to divorce answers questions from hundreds of men just like you about how to get on with a better life!

From Ex to Sex
(And everything in between—questions guys ask, or should ask!)


This Q&A Coaching Covers it All:
• The nuts and bolts of starting over
• Why time is absolutely on your side
• “Is it normal to feel this way about my ex-wife, my kids, other women?‿
• Dating again—what kind of woman you should be looking for?
• Having sex again—when, how much, working out the kinks, and more
• Getting serious—how to avoid the same mistakes this time around
• How to go for a good thing when you see it—you deserve it!

People want to work for, do business with, and invest in companies that drive for Excellence! Plus, no job is worth getting injured for, and you don't want an employee getting hurt on your watch. The pursuit of Zero is not a technical manual about safety regulations. It's a playbook of the principles and beliefs proven to drive record-breaking safety performance --- a focus that leads you, your team, and your company to record success.

Whether your organization is celebrating a safety milestone or responding to a safety incident, this is THE guide to setting new records or getting back on track.

  • Translate safety into dollars the way world-class companies do
  • Become a preferred supplier for your best customers and prospects
  • Attract and retain top talent
  • Grow your brand as a conscientious company
  • Make yourself more promotable within your company and your industry
  • Know you’re making a difference as you contribute to the welfare of your employees and their families



Bob Vruggink, Operational Excellence expert, started his career with a simple commitment to safety first. This personal and professional drive quickly catapulted his career from the plant floor to President of a surface technologies company where he achieved four consecutive years of record-breaking safety performance and four consecutive years of unprecedented profits. From there he continued building and rebuilding companies and organizations by leading with safety. Executive, consultant, lecturer, and speaker, Vruggink works with senior executives and front lines across dozens of industries.

You may find it impossible to believe that a single book could ever help solve a problem as serious and life-damaging as anger and rage. You may find counseling quite satisfying, but when it comes to the bottom line, you are raging as much as ever. You may have been told that you are going to have to take psycho-archaeology expeditions back to your childhood to discover and piece together the various elements that may be causing your anger problem. That may be helpful or it may be a way to avoid changing your behavior. edit

Some new clients tell me, "I know I need to work through my issues with my mother and father and that it will take a few years." I worry that in the meantime they may be divorced, fired, in prison, or dead if they can't change their angry way sooner. You can change right now.

There are men who want to stop their fault-finding, sarcasm, arguing, self-justification and self-righteous indignation, rage and violence. There are men who do not want to be divorced and lose their families. They want to be able to say, like I have for the last 10 years, "I am happily married and my life is good." This book is for the men stuck in the same jam and for the women who could love them again.

In "Anger Busting 101" Newton Hightower provides a framework for change that anyone can use. The author starts by establishing his credentials - he is not only a professional therapist but has had an anger problem that nearly ruined his life. He tried the therapies that were thought to help but was not successful. In fact, he found that many of the traditional therapies actually made his problem worse.

In this text he goes over the techniques that he found actually worked to change his life. These techniques came out of a whole new approach to anger, this approach is to treat anger as a recovery situation. This brings me to the only item that I had had a problem with in the book. In chapter 3 he discusses how to respond to questions of "why" from a spouse, sibling, or other person. For example, if asked why you got so angry and threw the lamp against the wall then you should use one of the answers given in the text. The basic idea of the answers is understandable as they focus on the angry person taking responsibility for their anger and actions. However, the way they are worded is highly questionable. For example, one response is "I'm crazy" or another is "I'm stupid". Current traditional psychotherapy would say to word it more along the lines of "What I did was a crazy thing to do" or "I did a stupid thing". Taking responsibility for your actions is one thing but taking it to the point of putting yourself down and endangering your self esteem when angry people often already have low self esteem does not seem like a good idea to me. Then again it is hard to argue with the results. From the cases listed in the book and the comments from other people that have used it successfully it does seem to work.

If anger is controlling you in any way and you want to start living a positive and fulfilling life then this book is for you. I would use caution with the wording in Chapter 3 and feel that you could take responsibility without the self-deprication, but other than that this book seems to offer hope to people who have been unsuccessful in controlling their rage in the past. A highly recommended read.

You may find it impossible to believe that a single book could ever help solve a problem as serious and life-damaging as anger and rage. You may find counseling quite satisfying, but when it comes to the bottom line, you are raging as much as ever. You may have been told that you are going to have to take psycho-archaeology expeditions back to your childhood to discover and piece together the various elements that may be causing your anger problem. That may be helpful--or it may be a way to avoid changing your behavior.

Some new clients tell me, "I know I need to work through my issues with my mother and father and that it will take a few years." I worry that in the meantime they may be divorced, fired, in prison, or dead if they can't change their angry ways sooner. You can change right now.

There are men who want to stop their fault-finding, sarcasm, arguing, self-justification and self-righteous indignation, rage and violence. There are men who do not want to be divorced and lose their families. They want to be able to say, like I have for the last 10 years, "I am happily married and my life is good." This book is for the men stuck in the same jam and for the women who could love them again.

In "Anger Busting 101" Newton Hightower provides a framework for change that anyone can use. The author starts by establishing his credentials - he is not only a professional therapist but has had an anger problem that nearly ruined his life. He tried the therapies that were thought to help but was not successful. In fact, he found that many of the traditional therapies actually made his problem worse.

In this text he goes over the techniques that he found actually worked to change his life. These techniques came out of a whole new approach to anger, this approach is to treat anger as a recovery situation. This brings me to the only item that I had had a problem with in the book. In chapter 3 he discusses how to respond to questions of "why" from a spouse, sibling, or other person. For example, if asked why you got so angry and threw the lamp against the wall then you should use one of the answers given in the text. The basic idea of the answers is understandable as they focus on the angry person taking responsibility for their anger and actions. However, the way they are worded is highly questionable. For example, one response is "I'm crazy" or another is "I'm stupid". Current traditional psychotherapy would say to word it more along the lines of "What I did was a crazy thing to do" or "I did a stupid thing". Taking responsibility for your actions is one thing but taking it to the point of putting yourself down and endangering your self esteem when angry people often already have low self esteem does not seem like a good idea to me. Then again it is hard to argue with the results. From the cases listed in the book and the comments from other people that have used it successfully it does seem to work.

If anger is controlling you in any way and you want to start living a positive and fulfilling life then this book is for you. I would use caution with the wording in Chapter 3 and feel that you could take responsibility without the self-deprication, but other than that this book seems to offer hope to people who have been unsuccessful in controlling their rage in the past. A highly recommended read.

This book is a man's guide to recovering from divorce and starting a new life. Written from the viewpoint of psychologists, the book uses a question and answer format to give men straight advice on how to minimize conflict, reduce harm to children, and start new relationships. The format enables the reader to choose just those sections that are applicable or of most interest. The emphasis of this book is not on legal pitfalls, but on how men can manage the psychological issues inherent in a divorce. The authors give extensive coaching to men in how to begin dating again, the nature of sexuality post-divorce, and making choices that can lead to a successful future marriage.

What about Me?
Practical advice for every man dealing with divorce.


Face it. When it comes to getting your life back together after divorce, most of the great advice out there is geared toward women.  Sure, there’s no end of advice for men about financial and legal concerns. But, what about YOU personally—your adjustment to a new kind of life, your uncertainty about how to start over. Your time has come! Whether you are newly separated or finalized your divorce last year, The Guys-Only-Guide to divorce answers questions from hundreds of men just like you about how to get on with a better life!

From Ex to Sex
(And everything in between—questions guys ask, or should ask!)


This Q&A Coaching Covers it All:
•    The nuts and bolts of starting over
•    Why time is absolutely on your side
•    “Is it normal to feel this way about my ex-wife, my kids, other women?‿
•    Dating again—what kind of woman you should be looking for?
•    Having sex again—when, how much, working out the kinks, and more
•    Getting serious—how to avoid the same mistakes this time around
•    How to go for a good thing when you see it—you deserve it!

Across the polished wood table my surgeon's face was calm and concerned. His hands were on the open file of pathology reports. His eyes looked directly into mine. I found the sight of his skilled and gentle hands reassuring as I uttered the words that would change my body forever.

He had patiently heard my questions and quietly answered them, as I knew he had answered many, many breast cancer patients. But for those few minutes, it was as though I were the only patient in the world to have ever said, "I have decided on the mastectomy option."

"I feel the need to put some things in order," I said, my voice low. "Does it need to be scheduled quickly?"

He assured me that thirty days would have no significant impact on the ultimate outcome.

I stood up, shook his hand, smiled, bit my lip, and told him I would see him in exactly 31 days. My destination: the beaches of Galveston.

These chronicles of my breast cancer began in the hours and hours of sleepless solitude facing east across the Gulf of Mexico. Pinks and silver colors of sunrises and flesh flowed from my heart through my hand, filling pages of blank paper.

Next stop: the Gallery. It had been nearly two years since I first heard "invasive carcinoma, 12 o'clock, right breast; 6 o'clock, left breast." My breast cancer chronicles, 32 paintings and 26 essays were arranged and spotlighted on the gallery walls, to be viewed by family, friends and strangers.

In the subdued light, background music mingled with their lowered voices as they stopped in front of each page and each painting. When they turned to me I saw their tears. Yes, my friends, my images and words reveal my heart and bare my soul. Thank you for coming. I love you.

Part II: Past Recovery,"Beyond Reconstruction,"and on to "What Makes a Woman a Woman?'"

Saturday morning, twenty years ago.

I walk slowly into the kitchen, stopping at the counter beside the sink. "Why do I feel so awful?" I wonder.

I cross my arms on the countertop and lay my head on them. It's a good thing I don't have to go the office today, I think to myself. My whole body feels leaden, my mind as lethargic as my body, even though I have had extra sleep, proper food and vitamins, not to mention my usual large cups of morning coffee. Where is my energy? Why can't I think?

I call my mom. Whatever would we do without Dr. Moms?

I describe to her the physical and mental inertia I have been experiencing. "You probably need estrogen," she says. "I know that for me it is my energy."

Dr. Mom, right again!! Like magic, "hormone replacement therapy" lifted me back to vitality.

2002: Breast cancer recovery, early stages.

Houseguests are visiting us for a weekend. I leave them talking at the dinner table, walk into my closet and curl up on the floor in the fetal position. My mind is virtually blank. "I don't want to see anyone," I confide to my husband, who has found me huddling in the dark. Shortly he returns with that little yellow tablet.

"Take it," he say. He knew.

Four months: no estrogen.
Four days: Tamoxifen.



Gott en himmel!! I can't live like this. I have to be ME.
I sit across the polished wood table from Dr. Marlowe. As always, he is calm, and as always, patiently listens.

"Hot flashes, yes, but I can deal with those. Night sweats, yes, but I can stand that." I pause to gain control.

"But I can't face life not feeling like ME. It is estrogen that makes me feel good. It is estrogen that gives me energy. And more than that," I tap my forefinger on my forehead for emphasis, "I need it to be able to THINK. I have to work, I have to support myself, and I HAVE TO THINK."

He nods slowly, acknowledging that he understands.

"If taking estrogen shortens my life, THEN I TAKE THAT RISK!"

He assures me that we will do "whatever it takes to make you feel better." He signs the small square paper with the magic word scrawled on it that means that means Woman, that means Life, that means Vitality.

With tears of relief, I thank him, and leave clutching the prescription in my hand. And so began the gradual climb back to my creativity, my sanity, myself.Taken from No One Wrote a Manual by Fran Padgett

- Dynamics underlying sexual harassment
- How sexual harassment can be prevented, including federal rules for educating employees
- How to report sexual harassment and your rights under the law if you are a victim
- Liability and potential consequences to employers resulting from harassment

perhaps the single best resource
for GIRL TALK. Available at
your favorite local or online
bookstore.

Setting the Table.

Pick one of these great
mother-daughter “settings‿
for your next table talk
conversation:


• Ride in the car listening
to music— just the two of you.
Use the lyrics to spur animated
conversations.
• Take a walk—a wandering walk—
together, and let the conversation
go where it may.
• Pick your daughter up from school
and suggest a drink at a coffee
house or a tea room. Most coffee
houses have comfortable, quiet
seating at this time of day.
• Learn to knit together. Many knitting
shops often have quiet cozy areas
in which to work. Furthermore,
knitting can be a productive
conversation-enhancing hobby.
• Read a book together—outloud. Let
the content spark your talk.
• Make special plans to get up early
and have a quiet breakfast before
the rest of the family wakes up.
• Go to yoga class together. Get a
smoothie afterwards.
• Dance together. Enroll in a tap class,
then go out for dinner.
• Plant an herb garden. Cook one meal
per week together with the herbs.
• Have a “spa day‿ at home. Give
each other “manis‿ and “pedis.‿
Serve sparkling apple cider to
make it special.
• Find a place in your town that offers
high tea one afternoon. Or, make
scones, put on classical music and
have your own tea party.

Most people think they just don't have what it takes to be a good negotiator. But if you stop and think, you will realize that this can't be exactly true. When you were a kid, did you ever ask your mom for a cookie right before dinner? Did you ever ask your Dad to let you out of your chores until tomorrow?  Did you ever ask your older sister to borrow her new turtleneck sweater?  Those were negotiations. As an adult, have you ever swapped work shifts, or organized the church bazaar, or hired a remodeling contractor to builder your new deck? This list goes on, and it is all negotiating.

The truth is you are a born negotiator, because you were born into a world where people must negotiate in order to get anything done.  In Zen and the Art of Negotiation, James A. Baker walks you through a simple process to help you tap into your inner negotiator. You will learn how to:

- Prepare for a negotiation
- Initiate a negotiation conversation
- Test the waters for your proposal
- Swap concessions that get you what you need
- Neutralize tactics from the other side and stay focused on your goals

Throughout the book, you will also be reminded of timeless truths that will help you stay centered on what is most important in life, so you can see that negotiation is ultimately about more than just winning.

This remarkable book breaks the silence and takes a daring look at how we grieve and what it really takes to heal. Author and pastor Herb Orrell is intelligent, caring and insightful on every page as he shares his own deeply personal story and the unspeakable despair of those he has struggled to counsel in their darkest hours. While he offers no easy answers, along the way you do begin to understand the often surprising ways each of us can finally make peace with our pain.

It's not every day that a book comes along with a truly insightful perspective. "Unspeakable: The Truth About Grief" is one of those books. Most people are familiar with the standard view of the process of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Herb Orrell has noted that many people don't seem to make that last step and as a result end up in some sort of continuos depression. With that in mid and his many years of experience as a minister, he has come to the conclusion that there may be a stage missing. That stage would be the search for meaning.

This book is a book that examines grief in detail from an empathetic viewpoint. The way from depression to acceptance involves a search for meaning in the event. When we search for meaning and ask "Why" the traditional religious reaction is not to even attempt to answer but to point out that asky "Why" is wrong. The author walks us through his experience and his questioning of why bad things happen to good people. Why do children starve? Why does God allow a child to continue in an abused home? Asking why is not wrong, but a part of our normal search for meaning.

Herb Orrell examines the role of fear, anger, and atonement in moving through grief from a very personal perspective. This is a highly recommended book with a truly innovative view on working through the stages of life.

We all cling to the promise that grief is a series of predictable stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and then acceptance. Naturally, we expect these stages to run their course. We expect to start feeling better at some point. The only problem is that for most of us, depression does not necessarily lead to acceptance. Most of us suffer in silence, stuck in a despair so intense and so consuming that we keep it hidden, not daring to speak of it to anyone. How can we when those around us, while trying to be supportive, expect us to "get over it" and "move on." After all, isn't that how the grieving process is supposed to work?

When someone asks how we are feeling, and a simple "fine" or "okay" won't suffice, we feel pressured. Imagine how a child feels when confronted with that same question from a parent or teacher. Thanks to licensed counselor Matthew Samford, there is an easier way to approach children about their feelings and for children to express those feelings to us. The Counselor's "T.A.G." Collection is a must-have resource filled with therapeutic games and activities aimed at helping children deal with issues such as grief, divorce, self-esteem, anger management, ADHD and many others, in a non-threatening setting.

 

Matthew Samford has created a wonderful collection of therapeutic games and activities for school-age children, that deals directly with the issues of grief, problem solving, divorce, self-control, social skills and self-esteem. The T.A.G. collection can be used not only by counselors, but also by parents, caregivers and teachers.

Leslie compares choosing a direction for your life with going to a train station and deciding which train will take you to your desired destination.

The ticket for every destination in life is commitment. "Are you required to remain only on one train all your life?" students ask Leslie. "Of course not," he reassures them. "You may return to the depot at any time to pick a new train, or you may re-board old trains you once took but left earlier."

To help young people decide on a destination, this award-winning teacher developed and refined the exercises shared in Success Express for Teens. Throughout the book, the brief, action-oriented activities pose the questions "What should I do next?", "How?" and "What's in it for me?" After describing the goal of the activity, Leslie then leaves room to respond to specific instructions and reflect on how the knowledge can be put to immediate use in real life.

Inspired by Leslie's personal struggle with depression as a teen, and refined during eleven years of classroom "testing" with real teens, the lessons learned from the activities ring true. Leslie hopes each participant's journey will be like a swift ride on an express train to success. "We achieve by doing. We learn by living." says Leslie.
"These 50 self-guided activities empower teens to determine personal strengths, choose a direction for success, and make dynamic strides toward realizing their biggest dreams."
~ Mary Lue Summerlin, Ed.D.
Director of Psychological Services
Deer Park, TX ISD

The activities are set up to encourage teenagers to clarify their highest ambitions, identify wise risks, and develop motivation that will help make them self-starters and keep them focused on their goals--even in the face of adversity. Leslie subtly teaches students about their dynamic relationship with life and the empowering role they play in any destiny to which they aspire.

Teens can take their journey to success independently by completing the suggested activities on their own. In addition, the book has a helpful appendix for teachers, counselors, group leaders and parents which details ways to turn each of the 50 activitities into shared group experiences for five to fifty teens. So, whether alone or with their peers, teens can board the Success Express and move toward identifying and realizing their dreams.

A prolific author, editor, teacher, librarian, national YA book reviewer, and motivational speaker, Roger Leslie uses original and dynamic techniques in his writing workshops, self esteem building seminars, and customized presentations. Besides articles, essays, and reviews, his published works include a history book, the three volume Library Programs that Inspire series (c)2001-2002), and a novel Drowning in Secret (Absey & Co, (c)2002). His writings and teachings have earned him awards from writing organizations, school districts, Chambers of Commerce, state universities and national education groups.

"It’s time for bed," said the elderly gentleman as he lifted his wide-eyed granddaughter off my lap.

"But Pop Pop, he’s telling us such funny stories," protested the giggling girl.

So Pop Pop sat down to listen, and soon the little girl fell asleep in his arms. He laid her gently on the couch and then the two of us laughed until the tears rolled down our cheeks. And sometimes we cried. And deep into the night I told him everything I could remember about bouncing back and forth between the Amazon jungle and the concrete jungle.

When I finally went to bed, he was still sitting beside his granddaughter, one hand on her head and the other under his chin. Snoring with a smile on his face.

"Tell us all about your life in the jungle," they asked me again and again.

"I don’t think I can," I answered. "It was such a different world—how can I possibly explain it?"

"Well then," said a soft-spoken little friend in the front row, "just tell us some stories."

And so I did. Some were funny, some were sad, and some were…well…you’ll see.

I grew up visiting grandparents at a farm called Broadview, set amidst the rolling hills of the Shenandoah Valley. My grandfather had purchased the original piece of land with its old stone house when my mother was a girl, though only after she was grown did they make it their main home. My sisters and I loved playing tag with cousins in the barn hay baled, riding horses over the fox hound trails, and eating Granny’s home-grown sweet corn every August. At the end of an active day, we would collapse around the heavily laden dinner table listening to my grandfather’s stories of growing up in west Texas, secretly hopping a train for southwest Virginia, courting my grandmother on horseback, and then eloping with her. Granny and GrandPop’s house at Broadview was one of my favorite places on earth. My parents spent relatively little time there, though they usually dropped me and my sisters off for long summer visits.

Interesting changes began when my grandfather died and left a piece of that family farm to my mother. My sisters and I were grown by then and living away from Virginia, but I began to read in my mother’s letters about my parents going over to this spot of earth, carting rocks to fill in the road, laboring to cut wayward cedars, and rejoicing with thrashed thistles. They bought a little camping trailer, put it on a back corner, and named it the Homestead, providing them an outpost to facilitate their coming and working there more often. My parents began to spend a lot more time with my Uncle Jim and Aunt Kitty, as well as with other family members. They began doing what I think my grandfather had dreamed of their doing for years—loving the land and the family.

My parents have described to me the inner movement that happens when you own your own land and are responsible for it. They gained a new sense of connection; they realized that they had control and could make choices; they assumed responsibility; and they developed the property in new ways. They began to occupy the land, not just to play on it but to work it…and hard.

I believe that this same inner movement happens without emotional and relational land, specifically the territory of connectedness with our family that we bring into our adulthood. As long as we feel that the activities and relationships that compose coming home involve merely a treading on our parents’ territory—in which we have no real ownership or adult partnership—we will only visit. We will keep a certain physical and emotional distance. We may admire, critique, or marginally contribute but will probably not fully enjoy or work the land of family relationships.

As adults we often develop a sense of ownership in our own marriages and with our children. We feel and act grown up (at least most of the time). But on visits to see our parents, we revert to patterns of childhood. We fail to speak up for ourselves as adults or creatively work for growth. Instead, we passively or reactively endure for a time a return to the old-world ways. We forfeit any sense of ownership, with its concomitant sense of responsibility and possibility, regarding our family of origin and, hence, our visits home.

This book is about our taking ownership for our visits home to see parents and family, acting like grown-ups with the people who knew us as children. This requires preparing for our visits in new, relational ways. The hard work includes cutting down the annoying cedars of thoughtless activities and digging out the thistles of frustrating relationship patterns. The invitation includes clearing new roads in the form of new patterns and rituals for our family. This "homework" takes place on three levels. Section One will offer help for the first level: preparing specific, practical steps for improving the relational encounters of family visits. Even small steps can make perceptible changes in the difficult repeating scenarios of family interaction and contribute toward positive relationship growth. Section Two will explore the deeper, underlying work of transforming or core relationship roles: helping pampered children take more responsibility, heroes become more human, and victims gain voices. Finally, Section Three will challenge readers to use the lessons from their families in the work of creating their own new homes.

Changing patterns that we have acted out since we were born is a great challenge. Doing that with the very people who taught us those steps is even harder. But as adults we must do that, attending carefully to what we treasure as well as what we wish to change about our family relationships. If we do that personal "homework," we will claim emotional territory that we can enjoy together with our parents or family before they, or we, die. I invite you to dig into the soil of your family frustrations, to plow the way for better family visits, renewed relationships, and your own personal growth.

In the following pages we'll cover a wide range of important subjects related to personal
achievement.  You can find a list of what we'll cover at "What's Inside." the table of contents
pages, in the font of the book.

By the time you've finished each chapter of Flash Point, you should be prepared to take
advantage of the information you've learned to help you speed up your rate of personal
achievement.

Please keep in mind that the object here is not to finish the book quickly.
Instead you should learn at whatever pace is comfortable to you.  If it takes you
a month, or even 6 months, to get through, that's okay.  Nothing worthwhile happens
over night.  It's better to understand and get good at something, and then move on to
the next thing, than it is to move too quickly and be familiar with a lot of things but great
at nothing.  So again, work at a pace that works for you.

Walt Disney used to say, "Don't just give your audience what they want. Give them what
you know they need and will help them."  Well, you are my audience, and that is exactly
what I hope to do.

In order to get the most out of Flash Point: Ignite Your Potential!, I suggest you do
the following:

1. Take a moment to look over the contents to familiarize yourself with the subject matter.
2. Recognize that several chapter build on, or work with, information in previous ones,
so reading the book and doing the exercises in their written order is ideal.  However,
you can certainly read the book in whatever order you want, since you may have
certain subject that are of greater interest to you.
3. Take advantage of the useful tools provided that will help you learn the information
you'll read much more quickly.
4. As you read, think about how you can apply each lesson to your own life.
5. Enjoy the process.

Across the polished wood table my surgeon's face was calm and concerned. His hands were on the open file of pathology reports. His eyes looked directly into mine. I found the sight of his skilled and gentle hands reassuring as I uttered the words that would change my body forever.

He had patiently heard my questions and quietly answered them, as I knew he had answered many, many breast cancer patients. But for those few minutes, it was as though I were the only patient in the world to have ever said, "I have decided on the mastectomy option."

"I feel the need to put some things in order," I said, my voice low. "Does it need to be scheduled quickly?"

He assured me that thirty days would have no significant impact on the ultimate outcome.

I stood up, shook his hand, smiled, bit my lip, and told him I would see him in exactly 31 days. My destination: the beaches of Galveston.

These chronicles of my breast cancer began in the hours and hours of sleepless solitude facing east across the Gulf of Mexico. Pinks and silver colors of sunrises and flesh flowed from my heart through my hand, filling pages of blank paper.

Next stop: the Gallery. It had been nearly two years since I first heard "invasive carcinoma, 12 o'clock, right breast; 6 o'clock, left breast." My breast cancer chronicles, 32 paintings and 26 essays were arranged and spotlighted on the gallery walls, to be viewed by family, friends and strangers.

In the subdued light, background music mingled with their lowered voices as they stopped in front of each page and each painting. When they turned to me I saw their tears. Yes, my friends, my images and words reveal my heart and bare my soul. Thank you for coming. I love you.

Part II: Past Recovery,"Beyond Reconstruction,"and on to "What Makes a Woman a Woman?'"

Saturday morning, twenty years ago.

I walk slowly into the kitchen, stopping at the counter beside the sink. "Why do I feel so awful?" I wonder.

I cross my arms on the countertop and lay my head on them. It's a good thing I don't have to go the office today, I think to myself. My whole body feels leaden, my mind as lethargic as my body, even though I have had extra sleep, proper food and vitamins, not to mention my usual large cups of morning coffee. Where is my energy? Why can't I think?

I call my mom. Whatever would we do without Dr. Moms?

I describe to her the physical and mental inertia I have been experiencing. "You probably need estrogen," she says. "I know that for me it is my energy."

Dr. Mom, right again!! Like magic, "hormone replacement therapy" lifted me back to vitality.

2002: Breast cancer recovery, early stages.

Houseguests are visiting us for a weekend. I leave them talking at the dinner table, walk into my closet and curl up on the floor in the fetal position. My mind is virtually blank. "I don't want to see anyone," I confide to my husband, who has found me huddling in the dark. Shortly he returns with that little yellow tablet.

"Take it," he say. He knew.

Four months: no estrogen.
Four days: Tamoxifen.



Gott en himmel!! I can't live like this. I have to be ME.
I sit across the polished wood table from Dr. Marlowe. As always, he is calm, and as always, patiently listens.

"Hot flashes, yes, but I can deal with those. Night sweats, yes, but I can stand that." I pause to gain control.

"But I can't face life not feeling like ME. It is estrogen that makes me feel good. It is estrogen that gives me energy. And more than that," I tap my forefinger on my forehead for emphasis, "I need it to be able to THINK. I have to work, I have to support myself, and I HAVE TO THINK."

He nods slowly, acknowledging that he understands.

"If taking estrogen shortens my life, THEN I TAKE THAT RISK!"

He assures me that we will do "whatever it takes to make you feel better." He signs the small square paper with the magic word scrawled on it that means that means Woman, that means Life, that means Vitality.

With tears of relief, I thank him, and leave clutching the prescription in my hand. And so began the gradual climb back to my creativity, my sanity, myself.Taken from No One Wrote a Manual by Fran Padgett
