Harvard-trained psychologist and Psychology Today parenting expert Carl Pickhardt gives parents an eye-opening look at what to expect on rocky road of middle school and high school, revealing the Four Freedoms that every child must master to become a healthy adult--and how parents can adapt, encourage, and grow themselves during these tumultuous times. Parenting a teenager is not for the faint of heart. It is during these roller-coaster years that frustrated parents find themselves at their wits' end, barely even recognizing their offspring as they move through the teen years. Carl Pickhardt, Harvard-trained psychologist and the voice of reason behind Psychology Today's advice column, "Surviving (Your Child's) Adolescence," shares critical insights and practical tools that parents need to know as their children move through the teen years toward independence and adulthood. There's a reason the road is rocky--it's supposed to be. Children must pass through "four unfolding freedoms" in order to become competent, independent, and confident adults. How easily parents can navigate these twists and turns with less hand-holding, angst, and hitting the brakes directly correlates to how successful their children will be. The four unfolding freedoms are these: 1) freedom from rejection of childhood, around the late elementary school years, when they want to stop acting and being treated as children anymore. 2) freedom of association with peers, around the middle school years, when they want to form a second family of friends. 3) freedom for older experimentation, around the high school years, when they want to try more grown-up activities. 4) freedom to claim emancipation, around the college age years, when they decide to become their own ruling authority. With each successive push for freedom, both parents and teens need to learn how to do less holding on to each other while doing more letting go. Dr. Carl Pickhardt will show them the way with compassion, experience, and time-tested guidance.

A #1 New York Times bestseller, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and “one of the finest and most gripping political novels of our era”(The New York Times). Allen Drury’s Advise and Consent is one of the high points of twentieth-century literature, a seminal work of political fiction by a Washington DC insider that is as relevant today as when it was first published in 1959. Drury has penetrated the world’s stormiest political battleground—the smoke-filled committee rooms of the United States Senate—to reveal the bitter conflicts set in motion when the President calls upon the Senate to confirm his controversial choice for Secretary of State. This novel is a true epic showing in fascinating detail the minds and motives of the statesmen, the opportunists, the idealists. From a Senate old-timer’s wily maneuvers, a vicious demagogue’s blistering smear campaign, the ugly personal jealousies that turn a highly qualified candidate into a public spectacle, to the tragic martyrdom of a presidential aspirant who refuses to sacrifice his principles for his career—never has there been a more revealing picture of Washington’s intricate political, diplomatic, and social worlds. Advise and Consent is a timeless story with clear echoes of today’s headlines. Includes Allen Drury’s never-before-published original preface to Advise and Consent, his essay for the Hoover Institution on the writing of the book, as well as poignant personal memoirs from Drury’s heirs. “Fifty years after its publication and astounding success . . . Allen Drury's novel remains the definitive Washington tale.” —The Wall Street Journal

The Mission of the Heart is my fifth book and includes poetry written during late 2014 through mid-2015. The thoughts conveyed in these poems are personal to me, and their reproduction in this book is primarily intended to convey concepts of truth, which can be of benefit to others. Some subjects and truths require research and study, so these short poems are intended as food for thought and for further study and investigation by the reader. Although the human mind can develop a thirst for knowledge and wisdom, the process of storing and applying such knowledge and wisdom can be best understood in small doses. Life on earth is a lengthy process of self-development and requires both study and active application in a continuous stream in order to advance both physically and spiritually. The learning process is unending, and many of the most important lessons come through trial and tribulation. As we gain in our self-development, we learn how to blend and merge together our faith, our mental capacity, and our love nature to become believers and disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are each challenged by our assignments yet blessed with the inner strength of the indwelling Christ. We must, therefore, embrace this unique indwelling presence, which makes all good things truly possible!
