Publisher: Little, Brown
In this book, the Searses bring the reason and common sense of their philosophy of parenting to the hurdles of raising the older child. Attachment parenting is not just for babies; as children grow, they need to expand the web of their secure attachments to friends, teachers, community and the wider world. As there is no single plan for any one family, the Searses show a range of ways a parent can retain a child's trust and wield a positive influence as their child matures. By following the advice laid out in this book, parents can see that the bonds they have nurtured since infancy will provide the anchor that will ground their children through the challenging teen years to adulthood.
Twilight is a rather ordinary little grey pony but when Lauren whispers the magic words, he turns into a beautiful snow-white unicorn. In this thirteenth exciting adventure Lauren and Twilight make an intrepid journey to the land of Arcardia in order to save their pony friend Shadow from a mystery virus.
