Summary

Philosophizing — considering life questions — stimulates thinking: processing information, reasoning, thinking creatively, evaluating alternatives. Many children are natural philosophers. They observe the world around them from a young age, have a keen sense of right and wrong, and ask endless questions. Stories — fables, fairy tales, parables — are a classic device for teaching lessons about life, morality, chance, consequences, and other cultures to audiences both young and old. Philosophy Sucks...Kids Right In! is a guide that parents and educators can use to structure and guide this process. Contributors Nel de Theije and Leo Kaniok have collected 40 short stories that encourage children to ponder the themes of happiness, love, friendship, peace, freedom, respect and equality — and more. An introductory chart clearly lays out the age groupings the stories are appropriate for, a primary theme, possible secondary themes, and the teaching purpose of the story. Many stories come with discussion papers that suggest areas of exploration with children of different age groups (4-6, 6-8, 8-10 and 10-12) and grades. The open-ended questions stimulate children to experience the stories more intensely, encourage self-reflection, and seek their own answers to the big questions of life.

    Enhance Your Everyday Life With Everyday Hypnosis
     
    "Hypnosis." The very essence of the word conjures up an image of some theatrical individual swinging a pocket watch in front of willing participants in an attempt to get them into a trancelike state, who lose all their free will and do whatever the hypnotist commands. Nothing could be further from the truth.
     
    Pop culture and pure work of entertainment have mystified hypnotism as nothing more than manipulative mind control when, in fact, it's much more compliant and cooperative than that. Separating "scientific fact" from "Hollywood fiction," this is real hypnosis, not the hocus pocus that you see in movies. This is "Practical Hypnosis."
     
    What is hypnosis? Hypnosis is a tool that offers tremendous benefits to those who regularly practice it as self-hypnosis or willingly participate in it as hypnotherapy by a licensed hypnotist.
     
    For example, if you have a smoking or weight problem, then hypnosis can help in attacking and addressing the problem at the core of your subconscious to get you to overcome or stop these habits or problems altogether. Or maybe you've even thought about becoming a professional hypnotist yourself and using it as a form of treatment for patients who have these personal problems.
     
    Whatever it is, "Practical Hypnosis" will guide you from not knowing what hypnosis is or what it entails and clearing up its misconceptions to using it on yourself or others.
     
    * The two main different types of hypnosis and how to perform them: guided (hypnosis) and unguided (self-hypnosis).
     
    * The beginner's friendly components that come into play in order for hypnotism to work for behavior modification at the subconscious level.
     
    * The real truth about "conversational hypnosis" with intention of it being used to hypnotize others during normal conversation.
     
    * The common hypnotic treatments in "clinical hypnosis" for such as smoking, drinking, weight loss, sleep disorder, anxiety, and poor health.
     
    * The important steps required to make the hypnotic induction a total self-transformation and not only a temporary state.
     
    * And much more to explore!
     
    If you want to experience and learn about the real-world application of hypnosis to reprogramming old ineffective ways of doing things and living life, "Practical Hypnosis" will present that edge you seek.

    A New Revolutionary Breakthrough In Dental Health
     
    Can you regrow teeth? That’s the question you’re probably wondering.
     
    The answer is...yes...but not in the way you may think. Let’s put it this way, your body can’t grow back a new tooth like it would for a piece of hair, nail, or skin layer that naturally replaces itself. However, a tooth can be regrown on a surface level which is known as “tooth remineralization.”
     
    What is tooth remineralization? It’s the regrowth process of restoring vital minerals and adding back layers to your teeth to make them stronger, bigger, and more solidly whole again.
     
    Your teeth will naturally weaken over time due to continuous use and even abuse (e.g., using your teeth as a tool to open things), overexposure to unhealthy diets high in sugar, poor oral hygiene from neglect of regular tooth brushing and mouth cleaning, etc.—resulting in all-too-common tooth decay, cavities, gum diseases, and other dental problems.
     
    The reality is that you only get one set of teeth in your life (excluding baby teeth). If you fail to take care of the teeth you have now, you’re going have to spend thousands of dollars and up for expensive dental works later down the road.
     
    On the other hand, if you’re one of the few who takes up the practice of manually performing tooth remineralization as soon as possible—you can restore your teeth back to its healthy natural state and keep them for life.
     
    Here’s what you will discover inside “Tooth Regrowth”:
     
    * The NASA-developed toothpaste used by astronauts to remineralize teeth.
     
    * The oldest medicinal system in the world to restore your pearly whites.
     
    * The natural herbal approach to rejuvenate the regrowth process in your mouth.
     
    * The most potent way to get your calcium intakes for building strong teeth.
     
    * The connective-tissue acid to fight periodontitis and reverse receding gums.
     
    ...and that’s simply scratching the surface of tooth remineralization.
     
    Don’t let your teeth deteriorate to the point where it’s too late to fix the problem that you could have prevented or fixed yourself. Pick up “Tooth Regrowth” now to remineralize your teeth and reclaim a healthy shiny smile that you can be proud of.
