Non-Fiction - Self-help/Family
Date Published: June 29, 2017
Just for kicks, have you ever wondered what your parents really want from you in life? Is it you, or do your parents want you to have no real fun? On any given day, do you want to make your parents proud of you and still do what makes you feel really happy within yourself? Of course you do! But the real question has always been, and still is…how? How can we actually get this done?
Well, with A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent, a.k.a "the child-part consoler", you will get past common misunderstandings by learning how to truly talk, hear, and listen to your parents, guardians or caregivers instead of feeling like you have to run to friends to find some sense of acceptance, understanding, and real connection.

Not that this book could ever replace a parent, because it can not. But when it comes to openly communicating certain key ideas, this book comes really close.
This tell-all guide contains lots of enlightening explanations and helpful answers to many common kid questions like:
· What do my parents really want from me?
· Why do my parents do what they do and say what they say?
· What do I really need to know about my parents' parenting skills?
· How can I keep my parents happy with me?
· How can I help my parents to help me?
· How can I get what I want from my parents every time?
A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent is an intro to the secret knowledge of adults which is a set of informations that is mainly covered in the book entitled Surrogate Re-Parenting: A.K.A. Get Your Mind Right, and even more thoroughly covered in the book The Secret Knowledge Of Adults. While this book, A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent is intended for kids 10 and up, the info in this book is beneficial and useful to the intelligent kid parts in all of us. Yes, this means you too.
The information in this book will help you and yours to start to see your parents, not as the enemy, but as the caring human beings they really are, and take the first step toward family unity, understanding, growth, success, and happiness! Both you and your parents really deserve this, and with this book, A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent, you and your parents can actually achieve this.
28) Earning Your Parents' Respect.
As a kid, when it comes to parents, us having, earning and receiving their love, is almost guaranteed. You can be one of the most stubborn, unruly, wayward kids and they would still love their child and that's for life. It's fairly easy to have a parent's love but it is a whole different thing to earn a parent's respect.
This is because love and respect come from two entirely different places. The love comes from what they feel for you, almost through themselves. Respect comes from what they think about the what, and the “way”, you are doing things, that you are doing in your own life. As a kid, you can disgrace your parents and they will still love you. But even though they do love you, if you disgrace them, they won't respect you. As their child, you can act shamefully and your parents will still love you. But if you act shamefully, they won't respect you. You can steal from them and lie to them and they will still love you. But if you steal from them, and lie to them, they won't respect you. As a kid you can smell bad and look terribly messy and they will still love you. But if you smell bad and look terribly messy, they won't respect you. As a kid it can be very hard to earn the respect of your parents. You can't just smile your way through this one. If you want your parents' respect, you are going to have to earn it, and fight for it. This is because it isn't as easy as being loved by them. Your being respected by them is definitely worth a lot to them. When it comes to your parents, the “way” you do things, the “way” you get things, the “way” you live and the "way" you keep things, does matter to them.
As a kid, watch the “way” that is being promoted in your surroundings. A “way” that you have the power to use, choose or change for yourself, in your own life. They may not say it but they, as parents, look for proof of character in everything that you do as a kid. Proof that you have made a point of displaying character in all that you, as a kid, do or touch. Your parents watch your life for proof of honor and honesty, hoping to find both honor and honesty present, in the “way” you do everything as their child. They especially watch for decency, which is based mainly on how well you treat other living things in your surroundings. It's about how you use the power that you have over others, including smaller kids and pets. Your parents look to see you show mercy on those who have messed up on you, that are also smaller than you, like your brothers or sisters. It makes them, as parents, very proud when they see you, as a child of theirs, showing forgiveness to those who have foolishly wronged you. As you are growing up, it makes your parents really proud of you when they see how powerful you have become. They are especially proud when they see how gracious, kind, merciful and considerate you can be. They marvel at how great you have become, when they watch you being able to share with those who have given you nothing. As a parent, it gives them great joy to see their child, you, stand up against opposition to preserve the rights, safety and freedom of those around you as a kids. And the thought that if you were around a place, even if you were just passing through, that when you left that place, it would be better and cleaner because you were once there.
These are the types of things that can help you as a kid who already has their parent's love, to earn their respect. These are just a few of the actions that can help a kid earn their parents' respect.

Playground In My Mind is the story of Taylor Bouchand, a woman who enjoys success through creativity. Each day she wakes with a sense of accomplishment in her artistic ability that has earn her not only an impressive income, but respect for her work as a sculptress and painter. Taylor controls her own destiny
That is until she meets a little boy in a gazebo on a cold wintry night. He is just a little boy, with an odd way of saying things when they first meet, but all of that changes as Taylor sees him again and again. He tells her is name is Michael and she learns that the more she sees him the closer she is drawn to him.
Taylor realizes that there is something different about Michael, but not even her creative mind would have guessed what was happening. Michael, is aging faster than humanly possible. At first she tries to convince herself there is a logical explanation and what she thinks is happening is not possible. Only there is no logical explanation.
Taylor decides she needs professional help and sets up an appointment with a psychiatrist. This is not easy for her as she is aware that in order to create her life is about mystery and adventure. This could all be her imagination. Yet, she can’t believe that to be true.
Being a psychiatrist Dr. Paulson has treated a great variety of mental disorders ranging from mild and temporary to severe and chronic. Over the years he has helped cure fear, panic or phobias manifested in certain situations that can greatly affecting a patient's career, social life and mood. It helps that he knows a little about this new patient Taylor. He knows her work and her reputation. But it takes several sessions with Taylor, before Dr. Paulson finally hears her story.
His immediate opinion is that she is suffering from a mild depression as the result of emotional trauma and tragic events in her life. As she shares more, it still doesn’t surprise him, but he decides that Taylor may suffer from hallucinations and delusion. He has dealt with many patients who envision something that cannot be. It is a matter of determining the cause which he is sure will lead to a logical explanation.
Only Dr. Paulson has a change of heart when he has a dinner party with his friends Peter Newman, the husband of Christine who passed away in a fire many years ago, and the Mastersons who are clients of Taylor. Neither one knows of a connection between them and the famous Taylor Bouchand. There are many surprises unveiled that evening that would uncover secrets and open their eyes to strange possibilities. They would all soon realize that life isn't quite how we perceive it, but holds secrets from all of us.
This story is set in the suburbs of Rochester in Upstate New York, runs about 119,000 words and is somewhat similar in tone to Octavia E. Butler’s Wild Seed
About the Author
I began writing at the age of twenty because it was good therapy for me as a mother of an achondroplastic dwarf, at a time when there was not much knowledge or a support group. To hone my skills I completed the University of Washington Certificate course, Introduction on Fiction Writing in September of 2001. I attended a seminar on Writing Techniques and Styles, and another entitled How to Become a Successful Editor. In 2016 and 2017 I participated in the James Paterson online courses for screen play and fiction writing. As an avid reader, I organized a local Book Club here in Irondequoit... I was presented in, “Two Thousand Notable American Women, Third Illustrated Edition”, prepared by the American Biographical Institute and published in 1991. I was highlighted in an article by About Time Magazine in their Career Profile section in August, 1982. Then shortly after the article appeared I was on the air for an interview at a Syracuse Cable Station in a 30 minute segment entitled “Successful Black Women in New York State” and taped another 30 minute segment for a program entitled “Spotlight On You”. I appeared on WOKR-TV, “Shades Of Gray Program, where I was interviewed for Outstanding Achievement Recognition. This took place in 1990. I was interviewed for an article on the front page of the Irondequoit Post for my fiction book released in 2000 and entitled Til Death Do Us Part? I appearances on RNews (now known as YNN) in Rochester New York for my fiction book, and a nonfiction book entitled Who Says I’m Small in 2006, also promoted at the LPA (Little People of America) in Orlando Florida and Erie Pennsylvania in 2008. I opened my home base computer business, J. Tischendorf Services (originally J. Saxton Services) in 1984 and Pageant Perfect Production in 1990. I placed in the top 10 of the Mrs. New York State/America Beauty Pageant in 1983 and did freelance modeling for department stores. I did photogenic modeling for Eastman Kodak Company’s Phototech Division and modeled for the Gannett Newspapers 1983 Annual Report and the United Way Annual Report. I even participated in the special number drawing event for the New York State Lottery. I continued to build this experience by commentating high school fashion shows.
In 2010, Tate Publishing released by non-fiction book, “The Madman, The Marathoner”. Today I have several manuscripts, some of which I have entered in the Amazon book contest, and others that I continue to work on.
For the past several years I have participated in Author’s Night at Barnes & Noble which has kept my face in the public eye. When it comes to wanting to be published and write, I am the real deal!
