Summary

The East Coast of Trinidad. The seaside village of Plaisance, Mayaro. Pulling seine, catching crabs, playing cricket and football on the sand, walks along the beach, looking at the sunrise, swimming whenever you wanted, the sun shining, the surf rolling... 
When Robin's mother passed away he was overcome with nostalgia for his childhood in Trinidad. The memories that came flooding back to him of holidays spent at Mayaro Beach with his family were instrumental in helping him recover from the devastating loss. Recollections of a deliriously happy youth were the healing balm he needed personally, and a legacy he wanted to pass along to his own children. 
Through the eyes of ten-year-old Robin, The Beckoning Tide shares the joy of those days and weeks spent at the beach, and his carefree coming of age. Through those childhood recollections and reflections, Robin is able to deal with the changes in his life as an adult, and to cherish the profound sense of belonging that only the blessings of close family can bring. 
This book reminds us all that, even for those lucky enough to have spent summers at the family cottage or to have lived in an exotic piece of paradise, the most special place to be is with the people you love and the biggest treasure is the bond of family.

    In October 1986 ChildLine - the first national helpline for children in the world - was launched. With it came a revolution in child protection. For the first time abused children had someone they could ask for help. The launch of ChildLine was broadcast on BBC TV on October 30th. Watching in her quiet, respectable home in a small rural town was Jo, a clever, troubled fourteen year old. Suddenly Jo, the silent victim of sexual abuse by her parents' closest friend, no longer felt utterly alone. For the first time, she was being offered help, there on the screen. She was one of 50,000 children who tried to ring that night. In the end she got through to a counsellor and her life changed forever. In Running Out of Tears Esther Rantzen, founder of ChildLine, tells Jo's story, together with those of many other survivors. Each of these tales is testament to the achievement of ChildLine in teaching the nation how to listen to children who are suffering abuse and giving a voice to the most vulnerable group in society. The book also details landmark events in the last 25 years of ChildLine's existence: The crucial involvement of Princess Diana; The support from then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher; The investigation into a school owned and run by a paedophile that would lead to a change in the law; The 250 other children's help lines set up around the world with ChildLine's help. Although these personal stories are disturbing they each have an uplifting, inspiring message. Hope and help is within a child's reach - only a phone call away.

    The strategies in this book are not really secrets necessarily, but they are not the obvious ones that you hear every day, which are, feed them and have sex with them.  
    This isn't saying that they don't exist; that you don't need to do them. Those are obvious and doesn't need any more explanation.  
    There are some things that many women do not know that are the keys to a man's heart. These things lead you to a point in a man's life where he doesn't just want you in it; He needs you there.  
    These strategies will keep your man happy and in love with you; help you generate that feeling of love for yourself after the honeymoon period in the relationship wears off.  
    Love is a feeling that you have that will come and go. That feeling ebbs and wanes with the quality of the relationship, with the state of your mood, with what is going on in your life. The feelings we have are the waves or the tide that come in, and then they go out.  
    Love is a decision that you make on a daily basis, that you are going to be a person of love, and you're going to show up as a person of love in that relationship.  
     
    The average woman wants to wait until they feel love to then act lovingly. They wait until they feel love to give the person a hug. They wait until they feel love to give the person a compliment. Waiting until they feel love to want to spend time with that person, where the reverse is actually true.  
    When you act loving first, then the feelings of love follows. Its one of the biggest lessons I've ever learned in my life. I'm going to give you these strategies for how to ignite that feeling of love and keep your man happy.
