Growing Up bin Laden

by Jean Sasson

As the western world's most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden has fought to keep his personal life a mystery - loyalty and fear keeping those who know him from speaking out - until now. For the first time, two of Osama's closest family members, his first wife Najwa and their fourth son Omar, go behind the headlines to reveal the truth about the character and life of a man feared and revered around the globe. In gripping detail, they recount the drama, tensions, and everyday activities of the man they knew as a husband and father. Married at fifteen, Najwa describes the transformation of the quiet, serious young man she fell in love with into an authoritarian husband and stern father, an entrepreneur, and - finally - the leader of a complex international terrorist network. Uprooted from a life of extraordinary luxury and privilege in Saudi Arabia, they suddenly found themselves living life on the run, fleeing from country to country under assumed names and fake passports. Omar describes how he and his siblings were brought up in remote ranches and fortified Afghani mountain camps, handling Kalashnikovs and learning desert survival skills. Their eventual escape from Afghanistan would come just days before the terrible events of 9/11 changed the world forever. With unprecedented access and exclusive family photographs, Jean Sasson, author of the bestselling Princess, presents the story that we were never meant to hear.

Growing Up Ethnic in America

by Jennifer Gillan Maria Mazziotti Gillan

The editors who brought us Unsettling America and Identity Lessons have compiled a short-story anthology that focuses on themes of racial and ethnic assimilation. With humor, passion, and grace, the contributors lay bare poignant attempts at conformity and the alienation sometimes experienced by ethnic Americans. But they also tell of the strength gained through the preservation of their communities, and the realization that it was often their difference from the norm that helped them to succeed. In pieces suggesting that American identity is far from settled, these writers illustrate the diversity that is the source of both the nation's great discord and infinite promise.

Growing Up Female in Nazi Germany

by Dagmar Reese

Growing Up Female in Nazi Germany explores the world of the Bund Deutscher Mädel (BDM), the female section within the Hitler Youth that included almost all German girls aged 10 to 14. The BDM is often enveloped in myths; German girls were brought up to be the compliant handmaidens of National Socialism, their mental horizon restricted to the "three Ks" of Kinder, Küche, Kirche (children, kitchen, and church). Dagmar Reese, however, depicts another picture of life in the BDM. She explores how and in what way the National Socialists were successful in linking up with the interests of contemporary girls and young women and providing them a social life of their own. The girls in the BDM found latitude for their own development while taking on responsibilities that integrated them within the folds of the National Socialist state.

Growing Up Indian

by Evelyn Wolfson

From the book Jacket: Indian children never had to take naps. They could eat whenever they got hungry. They were never spanked and were rarely punished. And they didn't have to go to school. Yet these children grew up to be responsible, productive members of their communities. In an unusual look into the lives of Indian children of North America, Evelyn Wolfson describes how these youngsters were cared for as infants, what happened to them if they misbehaved, how they learned to be useful citizens, what toys they played with, what their home and family life was like, and much, much more. Using a question-and-answer format, the author answers questions about Indian children such as Did babies wear diapers? Did boys and girls play together? What did they eat? Did they learn to read and write? Told from a child's perspective and illustrated profusely with detailed drawings by an artist who is himself a descendent of American Indians, Growing Up Indian sheds fresh light on a fascinating subject. $10.85 THE AUTHOR Evelyn Wolfson grew up in New England and proceeded to travel in her young adult years-first to the West Coast, then to Europe, where she spent a year bicycling through thirteen countries before settling in England for six months to work as a "nanny." Upon her return to the United States, she married, and she and her husband raised two children. At night, she went to school to study environmental education and eventually became a teacher. Her love of ecology led her to intensive American Indian studies, which she shared with her young students. She is now a full-time writer and makes her home in Massachusetts. THE ARTIST William Sauts Bock, who is himself a Native American and a descendent of the Lenape Indians of eastern Pennsylvania, is an internationally-known artist whose paintings are exhibited throughout the United States, in Europe, and in the Middle East. Bock is active in community affairs in his hometown of Souderton, Pennsylvania, where he lives with his wife. He has illustrated more than seventy books.

Growing Up Mindful: Essential Practices To Help Children, Teens, And Families Find Balance, Calm, And Resilience

by Christopher Willard

Introducing mindfulness into the lives of our children and teenagers is perhaps the greatest gift we can offer. Mindfulness builds emotional intelligence, boosts happiness, increases curiosity and engagement, reduces anxiety and depression, soothes the pain of trauma, and helps kids (and adults) focus, learn, and make better choices. If that weren't enough, research now shows that mindfulness significantly enhances what psychologists call "flourishing"--the opposite of depression and avoidance. Growing Up Mindful helps parents, educators, and counselors learn how to embody and share the skills of mindfulness that will empower our children with resilience throughout their lives. With more than 75 accessible exercises and practices, along with adaptations for the individual needs of a wide range of children and teens, this inspiring guidebook brings you road-tested insights and tools for: * Tapping the power of the imagination, play, and creativity * Body-based mindfulness and movement practices * Creatively overcoming resistance and gaining kids' buy-in * The mindful use of technology and social media * Building the foundation through your own personal practice * "Attending" and "Befriending"--two positive responses to stress * Setting intentions and managing expectations of new practitioners * Sharing mindfulness in a formal setting including schools and workplaces * Extending our practice into the larger communities we share "Seeds of mindfulness can be planted in anyone at any time--seeds that under the right conditions can burst and bloom into a life of compassion and connection," writes Dr. Willard. Growing Up Mindful invites you to "embark on something incredible and world-changing" as you join the growing community of adults bringing wonder, curiosity, and reflection back into childhood and adolescence.
