Evil Inside Us: Dangers of No Impulse Control addresses the sheer threat to self and others when you give into everything you want. Indulgence is more than gluttony.

It can create monstrous and selfish behaviors that can disrupt jobs, friendships, partner relationships, daily routines, sexual habits and the government.

    This is a power-point audiobook in the I-Can-Do-It Book series. This audiobook covers post-divorce adjustment problems for children, adolescents and young adults. They are the Children of Divorce (CoD). Divorce is a surrealistic and confusing time. Family permanence shatters, venerability of parents dissolves, the covenant of safety ends, feelings of victimization and abandonment intensify, and the expected new role of the offspring - as sympathizer or mediator - forces unwanted changes.

    This is a power-point audiobook in the I-Can-Do-It Book series. This audiobook helps build compassion and caring in kids who lack a maturity and sensitivity to people, animals and things. Caring is not naturally human. We learn it. Some kids learn this quickly and are helpers around the house. Other kids are selfish, more self-pleasing and feel other people should do for them. You are in the best position to steer a caring child to be more caring, and to re-steer a non-caring child to show caring.

    This audiobook reviews the deep concerns with using and overusing time-out. Time-out is very popular for home discipline and is part of many parenting training guides because it seems easy to use and quick to understand. But despite its commercial popularity, time out is really over-rated, very complicated with difficult children, and never teaches any new behavior.
