Le Bizarre incident du chien pendant la nuit by Mark HADDON Summary

Christopher a quinze ans. Il comprend les mathématiques et la théorie de la relativité. Ce qu'il ne comprend pas bien, ce sont les autres êtres humains. Il aime les listes, les plans et la vérité. Il déteste le jaune et le marron. Il n'est jamais allé plus loin que le bout de sa rue tout seul. Pourtant, lorsqu'il découvre le chien de sa voisine transpercé d'une fourche, il décide de partir à la recherche du meurtrier et de s'en inspirer pour écrire un roman policier. Mais son enquête va bouleverser le délicat équilibre de l'univers qu'il s'était construit... "Pour vous faire une idée de ce roman, pensez à des livres tels Le Bruit et la Fureur, L'Attrape-coeurs ou l'un des récits d'Oliver Sacks." New York Times "Une oeuvre exceptionnelle." Sunday Telegraph "Un écrivain empreint de sagesse et d'humour noir, doué d'une rare qualité de compassion. Un succès sans précédent." Ian McEwan

Comment les enfants réussissent by Paul Tough Summary

Persévérance, curiosité... et autres pouvoirs cachés de la personnalité. Pourquoi certains enfants réussisent et d'autres échouent ? Nous sommes habitués à considérer que c'est une question d'intelligence, que la réussite dépend des résultats scolaires, de la maternelle à l'entrée à l'université. Dans cet ouvrage, Paul Tough soutient que les aptitudes les plus importantes concernent en fait le caractère d'un enfant : la perséverance, la curiosité, l'optimisme et la maîtrise de soi. Il appuie son propos sur les toutes dernières recherches de chercheurs et d'éducateurs, et sur les parcours d'enfants qu'ils suivent et aident et révèle comment cette nouvelle approche peut véritablement transformer les perspectives de réussite et la vie des enfants.

East Meets West by Kim Parker MSW LCSW Summary

Parenting can be the toughest journey a person ever makes. The author transparently addresses the difficult parts of this role while pointing us to some practical ways of thinking and relating with children to lighten the responsibility. This book is as fascinating as Amy Chuas Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother memoir, as relatable as Jen Hatmakers Christian foibles, as uplifting as Iyanla Vanzants inspirational messages, and backed by solid research of the likes of Brene Brown. By deftly combining four of Americas favorite genres into one enjoyable read, the author does not force us to compare and choose one world view over another, but honors all. Kim understands the unique challenges and opportunities that arise when youre parenting in a culture different than the one in which you were raised. Her words are wise and just what you need to figure out what is best for your family! Jill Savage, author of Better Together: Because Youre Not Meant to Mom Alone This is an insightful book, full of sound and practical advice. I highly reccommend it. Dr. Helen Mendes Love, MSW, author of Reflections on the Upsides of Aging Kim gives invaluable insight on the intricacies of parenting in a more globalized and culturally-relevant world, while respecting tradition and heritage. Sam Louie, M.A., LMHC, author of Asian Shame and Addiction: Suffering in Silence Humorous, yet educational, this book is a must read for any parent.

Comment les Eskimos gardent les bébés au chaud by Mei-Ling Hopgood Summary

Jeune mère américaine installée à Buenos Aires, Mei-Ling Hopgood a été choquée par l’heure tardive à laquelle les Argentins couchent leurs enfants. Était-ce bon pour leur développement, tant physique que social ? Poussée par sa curiosité de journaliste et ses interrogations de jeune maman, Mei-Ling Hopgood s’est lancée dans un tour du monde des méthodes éducatives, étudiant des problématiques aussi universelles que l’heure du coucher, l’apprentissage de la propreté, les repas, ou les activités ludiques. Aux quatre coins de la planète, elle a interrogé des parents issus des cultures les plus diverses, ainsi que des anthropologues, des éducateurs, et des experts en puériculture. Ainsi, les Chinois sont les rois de l’apprentissage de la propreté. Chez eux, le pot, ça commence à six mois ! Quant aux Kenyans, ils portent leurs bébés sur le dos, sanglés dans des écharpes colorées. Et ce n’est pas seulement par tradition – essayez donc de manœuvrer une poussette sur les trottoirs défoncés de Nairobi ! Les Français, eux, réussissent à faire de leurs bambins des gastronomes en culottes courtes. Toutes ces découvertes - et il y en a bien d’autres-, Mei-Ling Hopgood les a testées sur sa propre fille, dès la naissance. Et les résultats parlent d’eux-mêmes ! Ce regard original sur l’éducation à travers les cultures nous offre non seulement la possibilité d’expérimenter certaines de ces traditions mais nous prouve également qu’il y a mille et une façons d’être de bons parents.

Le cerveau adolescent by Frances E. Jensen,Amy Ellis Nutt Summary

En se basant sur ses recherches, ses connaissances et son expérience clinique, la docteure Frances E. Jensen, neuroscientifique de réputation internationale et mère de deux garçons, ouvre une perspective révolutionnaire sur le cerveau adolescent. Sa remarquable acuité se traduit par de nombreux conseils pratiques pour les parents et les adolescents eux-mêmes. Pendant de nombreuses années, les scientifiques ont considéré le cerveau adolescent comme un cerveau adulte miniature avec moins de kilomètres au compteur, parce qu’ils pensaient la croissance cérébrale presque terminée à la puberté. Depuis dix ans, la neurologie et les neurosciences prouvent que des étapes extrêmement importantes pour le développement du cerveau se déroulent pendant l’adolescence. Le Cerveau adolescent explique pourquoi les adolescents sont fragilisés face aux drogues et il révèle l’impact du multitâche sur la concentration et les capacités d’apprentissage. Enfin,il examine les conséquences du stress sur la santé mentale pendant et après l’adolescence. Traduit de l’anglais par Isabelle Crouzet
