In our fast-paced, success-obsessed culture, we’re constantly tempted to chase after things that don’t matter. We’ve been conditioned to value possessions over people, status over relationships, and ourselves over God.
But the reality is this: God created love to be the centerpiece of our lives.
In The Seven Laws of Love, Dave Willis makes the case for a love revival and proves that in returning to a life of love we have no greater model than the one who is love himself.
In Dave’s humorous, touching, down-to-earth style, Seven Laws of Lovetakes you on a journey through the ins and outs of everyday relationships—with your spouse, your children, your friends, and your c oworkers—using practical, applicable examples and guiding principles that demonstrate what a life of love actually looks like.
There is no higher calling on earth than to love and be loved. It’s time to learn The Seven Laws of Love, and to make loving a priority over all other pursuits. Anything else isn’t really living.

In The Collapse of Parenting, physician, psychologist, and internationally acclaimed author Leonard Sax presents data documenting a dramatic decline in the achievement and psychological health of American children. Sax argues that rising levels of obesity, depression, and anxiety among young people—as well as the explosion in prescribing psychiatric medications to kids—can all be traced to parents letting their kids call the shots.
Many parents are afraid of seeming too dictatorial and end up abdicating their authority rather than taking a stand with their own children. If kids refuse to eat anything green and demand pizza instead, some parents give in, inadvertently raising children who are more likely to become obese. If children are given smartphones and allowed to spend the bulk of their free time texting, playing video games, and surfing the Internet, they become increasingly reliant on peers and the media for guidance on how to live, rather than getting such guidance at home. And if they won’t sit still in class or listen to adults, they’re often prescribed medication, a quick fix that actually undermines their self-control. In short, Sax argues, parents are failing to prioritize the parent-child relationship and are allowing a child-peer dynamic to take precedence. The result is children who have no absolute standard of right and wrong, who lack discipline, and who look to their peers and the Internet for direction, instead of looking to their parents.
But there is hope. Sax shows how parents can help their kids by reasserting their authority—by limiting time with screens, by encouraging better habits at the dinner table and at bedtime, and by teaching humility and perspective. Drawing on more than twenty-five years of experience as a family physician and psychologist, along with hundreds of interviews with children, parents, and teachers across the United States and around the world, Sax offers a blueprint parents can use to refresh and renew their relationships with their children to help their children thrive in an increasingly complicated world.

Buku ini paling sedikitnya membahas mengenai betapa perlunya ibu bapa itu disayangi, dihormati dan dipeduli hal ehwal kehidupannya, kerana kalau bukan mereka tiadalah kita di dunia ini. Pemedulian kita bukan sahaja ketika mereka masih hidup, tetapi juga sesudah mereka tiada lagi di dunia ini. Orang tua atau ibu bapa merupakan segalanya bagi si anak. Oleh kerana itu, sementara mereka masih bernafas, sayangilah mereka.
Menyayangi atau berbakti kepada orang tua atau ibu bapa merupakan ajaran terpenting dalam Islam setelah perintah menyembah Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Sebaliknya durhaka kepada orang tua merupakan dosa besar selepas berbuat syirik kepada Allah. Demikian juga, kederhakaan anak kepada orang tua boleh membawa anak kepada kegagalan dan kesengsaraan hidup.

Why do grown-ups have to take over everything? This innocent question from acclaimed journalist and international bestselling author Carl Honore’s son sparked a two-year investigation into how our culture of speed, efficiency, and success at all costs is damaging both parents and children. When the impulse to give children the best of everything runs rampant, parents, schools, communities, and corporations unwittingly combine forces to create over-scheduled, over-stimulated, and overindulged kids. The mere mention of potty-training, ballet classes, preschool, ADD, or overeating is enough to spark a heated debate about the right way to raise our children. The problem is that despite the best intentions of all involved, the pressure to manage every detail of our children’s lives from in utero through college is overwhelming. Delivering much more than a wake-up call, international bestselling author Carl Honore interviews experts in Europe, North America, and the Far East, talks to families around the world and sifts through the latest scientific research. In Under Pressure: Rescuing Our Children from the Culture of Hyper-Parenting, not only do we see the real dangers of micromanaging children, but Honore also shows us an emerging new movement inspiring many to slow down and find the natural balance between too little and too much. Blending the finest reportage, intellectual inquiry, and extraordinary true stories, Under Pressure is the first book to challenge the status quo by mapping out an alternative to the culture of hyperparenting that is presently pushing children and their parents to the brink.

Defining Autism From The Heart
Defining Autism From The Heart: From Nonverbal to National Speaker” tells the story of Kerry Magro, a 25 year old adult who has traveled the country as a National Motivational Speaker. Kerry last January finished work for his Masters degree in Strategic Communication from Seton Hall University. What makes this achievement exceptional is that he was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4 and was largely nonverbal till he was 2 and a half. Today Kerry writes about his experiences on the autism spectrum from the heart to help others overcome obstacles. Kerry wanted to write this book to help show his passion and his heart to others while trying to make people understand that autistic people deserved to be loved. Kerry credits most of his progress to the undeniable love of his two parents Robert and Suzanne Mack-Magro. A great deal of his success would not have been possible without the long hours of work they did to help Kerry get the best therapies and services possible. A main take away from this book that Kerry hopes people will see is that loving yourself for who you are is such a huge key to your development. If you can’t be comfortable in your own skin than you can’t fully commit to your everyday life. Kerry in his book discusses these struggles he used to have and how in many ways he has overcome this because of the love he has received from so many members of our community. Topics from his book include defining your autism, overcoming obstacles, becoming a self advocate, reflecting on what’s important and much much more. This book is meant for all audiences and does not require an in depth knowledge of autism to understand. 9780615818108
