The Aging Brain: Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind. By Timothy R. Jennings, MD

 

IS DEMENTIA PREVENTABLE?

What if I told you there were things you could do now to prevent dementia?  You would probably say “Tell me what to do, and I’ll do it”.  You would probably react even more strongly if you have cared for – or even observed – a loved one struggling with this dreaded condition. I bet you’ve even assumed that Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of memory loss, confusion and dementia are inevitable consequences of getting older, unavoidable and unstoppable.  According to Dr. Timothy Jennings, you would be wrong. According to Dr. Jennings, dementia is not a guaranteed part of aging.  What’s more, we can take steps in our lives to prevent brain deterioration from ever happening and this author of his previous bestseller The God-Shaped Brain has now written the groundbreaking new masterpiece The Aging Brain: proven steps to prevent dementia and sharpen your mind.

Co-Parenting From the Inside Out: Voices of Moms and Dads, by Karen Kristjanson

With the staggering number of divorces in the United States and all over the world, this book is an essential tool.  When I grew up in the 1960s and 1970s, the typical model went like this: mother always got custody of the kids — except in rare situations where the mother was deemed by the court to be “unfit”.  I remember working with a boss many years ago who had custody of his children; I always wondered what was “wrong” with my boss’ ex-wife that caused a judge to give my boss and his future wife custody. I am not … Continue reading Co-Parenting From the Inside Out: Voices of Moms and Dads, by Karen Kristjanson
