HOW TO COPE WITH GRIEF AFTER LOSING A LOVED ONE
Is it normal to go through the grieving process? I tend to think that grieving is normal and natural; it takes place over time and through it you can accept and understand the loss. How does it differ from bereavement? Bereavement is what you go through when someone close to you dies. Grieving may involve actions and emotions which may assist one to go through the difficult times people experience due to the loss of loved ones. Both mourning and bereavement are part of the grieving process. Every loss of a person may not be the same to everyone hence grieving may not be the same for everyone. Is this true? This is true. I want you to compare the loss of your beloved mother and a very close friend of yours, which one do you think may lead to prolonged grieving? Keep that answer to yourself. But you should agree with me that grief doesn't look the same for everyone. I lost my mother and still I cannot talk about that death freely.

Below are some of the reasons that may cause grief;
Losing your job
Relationship breakup or divorce
Miscarriage
Serious illness of a loved one
Loss of health
Loss of a friendship
Loss of financial stability
To some people even retirement
Losing a pet to some people may cause grief

How to Improve Your Communication Skills
Introduction
Communication is the process of conveying a message or feeling through verbal or non-verbal means. It entails talking, use of gestures, posture and/or facial expressions. Although most people tend to ignore the importance of communication skills in their lives, the truth of the matter is that it greatly affects their relationship with other people. You must therefore take your time to understand how to improve your personal and professional life by developing better communication techniques. 
Regardless of your height, race, gender, age or place of residence, there is no way that you can live a comfortable and stress-free lifestyle without good communication skills. Your choice of words and other expressions will have a huge impact on the number of friends you have. It will also affect how close –or distant- you are to your friends and the kind of secrets you are likely to share with them. 
Your love-life is also greatly determined by your verbal and non-verbal communication techniques. This means that you must put some effort to improve these skills so as to have a strong and fulfilling love-life. 
Learning good communication skills is also one of the things that can make your professional life so much easier and enjoyable. With good skills, you will find it easy to talk and relate with your juniors and superiors.
Students might also find it very important to improve their communication skills as it will have a huge impact on their performance at school. Socializing with fellow students or even teachers will be so much easier once you learn how to communicate properly. 
It is my hope that after reading this book you will have gained the necessary knowledge to improve your communication skills. Nothing will give me more pleasure than knowing that I improved somebody’s relationship(s) through this book.

RAISING SUCCESSFUL CHILDREN
PHRASES such as “helicopter parent” and “tiger mom” have made their way into the daily language. But does over-parenting help, or hurt?
While parents who are embarrassingly and obviously inappropriate come in for ridicule, many people find themselves drawn to the idea that with just a little more parental elbow grease, they might turn kids with amazing talents and assured futures. The main question of whether there really is anything wrong with a kind of over-parenting lite still remains unanswered.
Parental involvement has rich and long history of being studied and researched. Decades of research, many of them by renown clinical and developmental psychologists, have revealed that the optimal parent is one who is responsive and involved; who sets high expectations but still respects his/her kid’s autonomy.
The “authoritative parents” tend to hit the sweet spot of the appropriate parental involvement and usually tend to raise kids who perform better academically, socially and psychologically compared to kids whose parents are either more involved and controlling, or less involved and permissive.

Introduction
How many times have you heard a person tell you brightly, that they could achieve some particular goal, or do something, but they do not seem to have the patience. In fact, they are quite proud of the fact that they leave things half way, because they do not have the patience to complete it.
Others are going to tell you all about losing patience with another person, who does not see their point of view. And then the argument gets to be really acrimonious, and friendships break, because of a loss of understanding and patience on the part of one stubborn person.
Well, the science of living book is going to tell you all about the importance of patience in your life, when touched with understanding.
I remember an instance, when I was traveling with a couple of friends, in their car, to visit some more friends for the weekend. This was the first instance that we were driving down to their weekend cottage in the country. The atmosphere was very pleasant, and we were looking forward to amusing times, with friends, when one of those all too frequent arguments started up between the husband was driving and the wife was reading the map.
I could see that we were well and truly lost, and would inevitably not keep our luncheon appointment. We do not have the GPS installed, because it had not come into vogue, lo those many years ago. So arguments over Map reading were extremely common, and many of us who remember such instances in our own lives are going to smile reminiscently.

Introduction – What Is The Science Of Living?
Many of us are familiar with the Art of Living. But do you know about the Science of Living? The physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional processes which we are going through in our day to day living are natural, inbuilt, and something which we do instinctively and automatically. Apart from these activities, we add spiritual and emotional strength to our lives by practicing the social, traditional and ethical principles and guidelines to good living brought to us by our ancestors and the wise ancients. This is the extra that we put into our lives in order to achieve spiritual and mental peace and equanimity. These rules of living brought to us by these ancients, under the heading of the art of living.
The Science of Living is looking at little incidents throughout the day or occurring in the lives of people around you. Now how are those actions going to influence you? How are you going to benefit from their mistakes? How are you going to be inspired by their experiences? How are you going to take advantage of this knowledge? This is the basis of The Science of Living in the modern atmosphere of stress, tension and worry.
The Science of Living graciously is going to be made up of a number of lessons. These are easy to implement in your own lives after you have understood them. They are going to be examples of people you see around you. You need to have the power of analyzing this factor – does this example relate to me? Am I a person who spreads joy around me? Or am I a taker contributing nothing to society except possible worry and tension to them. How do I achieve contentment? Is it possible to achieve everything you wish and desire in this world? How do I manage this stressful life, when I find myself facing problems and troubles at every turn? How do I gain the mental strength to cope with sorrow and loss?
Can I achieve all the goals I have set out for myself during this lifetime? If not, is it really worth struggling against huge odds?
Well, I hope this book and the others following it is going to teach you lessons in life and how they were used by the ancients to gain spiritual and emotional guidance, help and strength.

Introduction
“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”- Spencer Johnson.
I was reading a story by a French writer, in the 17th century, and I found this line very amusing.
“The more he talked about his honesty, the faster we counted our spoons.” 
Well, cynicism is definitely not something new in the 21st century. It has passed down the ages, and especially, when Shakespeare said “The lady doth protest too much, methinks,” when he wrote Hamlet in 1602. Here was a clear-sighted person who knew that somebody was trying to persuade herself and trying to pretend to the world that what she was saying was her own belief and the truth as she saw it.
How many of us are self-deceivers? Some of us will not and cannot face reality. Some of us are ready to blame others for our shortcomings. Some of us are quite prepared to fight for what we consider to be the truth, because we have expounded it, and we want other people to share our beliefs and thoughts.

Be honest with yourself. Once you have faced reality, you can be honest with others.
Honesty, especially when you are able to face reality, and you can understand that you are in the wrong or you are in the right is something very few people can do. They would rather stick their heads in the sand, hoping against hope that the problem is going to go away. Of course, they were not responsible for that particular problem. It just happened.
I was reading a Novel by Amanda Quick in which the whole family decided that they belonged to Bad blood, which was frivolous, spendthrift, and definitely not responsible. That is why they could fob off all their extravagances, and stupid behavior, to this excuse, “we cannot help it, our ancestors were like that and they passed on their habits to us.” 
This was Regency England. Even today, we have plenty of people using the same excuse, because they are definitely not honest enough to admit it that they do not have the strength or the willpower or the inclination to make something of themselves. 
They would rather go with the wind, and pretend helplessly, that they really cannot do something, because, well, they are not capable of doing that. They belong to a genetically imperfect family, they do not have any money, they have always been pulled down by circumstances and situations, and other such puerile and feeble excuses. These are just ways and means in which they can shirk their responsibilities.
These people are slackers and freeloaders. They are not honest, to themselves, or to others, however much they may pretend to be honest in the given sense of the word. They also do not have personal integrity.
