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"

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.
