What Are You Thinking Of  Dad

I'll see you in the morning. Do you think dad's talking up there?” Mum smiled. “I
expect so. He's got a lot of catching ... a chest infection at the beginning of the
week. They rang yesterday to say he'd worsened but didn't make a big thing
about it.

A heart-rending, honest account of the effect a stroke can have on family life. Nick Wisbey was 15 when his 49 year old father, Stan, was struck down by a stroke that was to leave him speechless and unable to communicate verbally. Instantaneously, the stroke relegated Stan from the head of the household, the breadwinner, to an invalid. The devastation on losing his ability to speak caused massive frustrations - with the family left to guess from his gesticulations what it was he wanted. The tensions mounted and Stan understandably struggled to adapt to his changed life - over time he sank into a world of TV watching, reading and silence. The family were left to cope as best they could, but felt that the stroke had cheated them out of a husband and father. The frustrations only increased as the years passed and the family grew. Stan Wisbey survived his stoke for twenty eight years, retaining the good looks and outward composure he'd always possessed, but never having resolved his anger with the illness. A further stroke took its toll on his well being and cognative abilities. What are you thinking of Dad? is Nick Wisbey's touching account of those 28 years. They focus on his relationship with his father - the highs and lows, the love and hate - as well as his mother's caring devotion to the family during this time. This account is unique because of the emphasis on the long term effect living with serious illness.

Supporting children and families through separation and divorce is a major area of concern in contemporary society. However, it is sometimes hard for those professionals who are helping families to hear the `voice' of the child in this process. Writing from their wide experience as clinicians working with children and families, Emilia Dowling and Gill Gorell Barnes set out in this book to address this gap, and allow the child to be heard. Working with Children and Parents through Separation and Divorce combines research with clinical and practical approaches to working with families going through stressful changes linked to separation or divorce. Attention is given to the wider context of children's lives with the implications for general practice, schools and other services addressed in special chapters. A focused approach to divorce related problems that takes each family member's view into account is illustrated. Combining individual and family work helps parents to resolve difficulties, enabling children troubled by parental separation to progress with their own lives. This book is essential reading for `front line' professionals as well as specialists who encounter children and families going through this life transition in the course of their work.

If getting emotional is something you don't want to happen then reading this book is something you don't want to do because an emotional rollercoaster will be a direct understatement of what you will experience as your heart rattles and the words jump from the page in this real life diary. If you think what you have to give is too much for this book so will be what is written inside. It will be too much for you! Forbidden from book clubs and anyone under the age of 18 without permission from their parents to read, this may be your only opportunity to divulge in it. So if you are thinking about waiting to read this you are not thinking at all. It's currently not available in brick and mortar stores because it would be too expensive to plastic wrap each book to keep every ones lustful eyes off of the secrets within these pages. If you are looking for a book with proper grammar and excellent spelling you have come to the wrong place as the Author once received an F in English class. So if you are looking to read words from a literary genius you might as well go back in time because this modern day mock up won't make the cut! If there is anything I CAN promise you, it is that it won't be anything like you are thinking. There is only one way not to find out...that is by not reading it! So keep your money and don't get the book because I don't need your money and you don't need the book...or do you? But I will stop there because it's not my job to convince you to read this, in fact, I don't even have a job.

“A superbly entertaining read.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Will win over teens.” —School Library Journal (starred review) A teen boy’s world gets turned upside-down when a zoo of exotic animals takes over his small town in this wickedly funny, heartbreakingly honest novel that’s perfect for fans of David Arnold. In Makersville, Indiana, people know all about Ronney—he’s from that mixed-race family with the dad who tried to kill himself, the pill-popping mom, and the genius kid sister. If having a family like that wasn’t bad enough, the local eccentric at the edge of town decided one night to open up all the cages of his exotic zoo—lions, cheetahs, tigers—and then shoot himself dead. Go figure. Even more proof that you can’t trust adults to do the right thing. Overnight, news crews, gun control supporters, and gun rights advocates descend on Makersville, bringing around-the-clock news coverage, rallies, and anti-rallies with them. With his parents checked out, Ronney is left tending to his sister’s mounting fears of roaming lions, stopping his best friend from going on a suburban safari, and shaking loose a lonely boy who follows Ronney wherever he goes. Can Ronney figure out a way to hold it together as all his worlds fall apart? From acclaimed author Crystal Chan comes an incisive tale of love, loyalty, and the great leaps we take to protect the people and places we love most.
