✏The Caring Motivation Book Summary : Caring is all around us and is manifested in diverse settings such as parenting, friendships, volunteering, altruism, mentoring, teaching, pet adoption, and gardening. The study of caring, the giving end of our relations, has been dispersed among a large variety of research paradigms (e.g., evolution, brain research, attachment theory, feminism, altruism, volunteering, parenting, social support, prosocial development, organizational citizenship behavior and sustainability) and this has impeded our understanding of caring. The Caring Motivation is a pioneering attempt to bring the diverse research on caring together and to examine caring as a motivation from a broad perspective that relies on these very diverse literatures. Author Ofra Mayseless underscores that we as a species have an innate, biologically driven and evolutionarily chosen, yet contextually sensitive, general motivation to care, tend, empower, and nurture. Several intriguing insights emerge, and a conceptual model of caring as a fundamental and encompassing human motivation is presented. This is the first time that such a model is discussed in detail and its presentation helps us understand core common processes of caring across diverse targets as well as unique adaptations. The model presents for the first time a comprehensive view on how caring is psychologically activated and sustained and underscores the importance of life meaning and purpose in its enactment. The book also introduces a preliminary and innovative model of the universal developmental course of the caring motivational system from infancy to adulthood. This novel and pioneering view opens up exciting new arenas for research and for applications in psychotherapy, education, human growth, spirituality and religions, leadership and organizational behavior, and human sciences in general and highlights the pivotal place of care in our lives.

✏Caring for the Sick and Elderly Book Summary : This book highlights the various ways pastoral care ministers and parish volunteers can reach out to the sick and elderly. There are a wealth of ideas here for extending spiritual, sacramental, and charitable support to parishioners who are homebound, in nursing homes, or in hospitals. For many years, Sr. Marie Roccapriore has been involved with a parish program called Project H.E.A.L.--Homebound are Encouraged through Assistance in Love. The details of this program are provided in this book, along with forms and other reproducible information that will be useful in developing this type of program in your own parish. Also included is an extensive listing of resources that are invaluable for ministry with the sick and elderly. The creative ideas offered will motivate more involvement among children as well as adults, and bring positive results among the sick and elderly recipients who eagerly look forward to the compassionate and loving care of others. Personal examples and anecdotes help illustrate the ways that even the simplest gestures of care and concern can make a world of difference in the lives of the infirm.

✏Support Networks in a Caring Community Book Summary : The historic Binnenhof, seat of the Dutch government in The Hague, provided the setting (January 1985) for a conference in which participants from eleven countries met to consider the theme: Support networks in a caring community: research and policy, fact and fiction. At the outset, conference leadership - provided by Professors J.M.L. Jonker (The Netherlands) and R.A.B. Leaper (United Kingdom) urged the conferees not to allow their enthusiasm for informal support networks to combine with the pervasive awareness of the failures of welfare states into a simplistic stance of advocacy, with a consequent appeal to politicians to direct state funds accordingly. Legitimate criticisms of the responses of welfare states to the needs of citizens were to be seen as the context for discussion, not the substance of conference deliberations. More specifically, if it is now apparent to many people that governmental assistance of individuals with social needs can lead to an undesirable dependency on the part of increasingly passive citizens, that awareness does not lend logical support to an ideological position that governmental expenditures are pern~c~ous per se - to be replaced as rapidly as possible by a return to reliance on self, family, friends and associations that are developed voluntarily and financed by those who are sufficiently interested.

✏Finding a Quality Child Care Center Can Be Difficult Let Me Help Book Summary : Introduction I chose to write this book because of the pain I’ve seen in the heart of parents who have placed their child/children in child care centers that did not have the best interest of children at heart. These parents hurt deeply because they placed and even paid money on a weekly basis to have their child in a program that was not respecting the child. I like to call these programs child farms because their interest is not in helping to develop, grow, and nurture children but to make money off children. One mother could barely speak as she told me her story. She had asked her father to pick her son up from his family child care home and take him to the doctor. When the grandpa arrived, he knocked on the door, but nobody answered. He could hear babies inside the house crying, but it did not appear that anyone was inside caring for the children. Grandpa sat on the porch and waited for someone to come, all the while he could hear the babies inside crying. A while later the caregiver pulled up in the driveway with Wal-Mart bags in her hands. When grandpa told her whom he was there to pick up, she let him have the baby and did not even check his identification. He could have been anyone picking up that child. The mother set up a watch with the county police and the Department of Social Services for the next morning. Parents brought children into the home and left. About thirty minutes after the last child was dropped off, the caregiver came out of the house, locked the door, and got into her car. As she pulled out of her driveway, she was arrested. Parents were contacted to pick up their children. The caregiver was putting the children in their cribs and then leaving the house to go shopping and run errands. Another parent had her six-month infant get a broken arm. Another parent had her four-month infant die—death certificate said SIDS, but the child was dead for over two hours before anyone knew. These are scary stories, and there are many more. We’ve all seen these in the news, but I’ve personally sat face-to-face with some parents who have suffered through this devastating situation. Their common statement was “How does a parent know a good center from a child farm?” How does a parent know? And so it goes, I wrote the book. I hope this book will be useful to you as you begin to research child care programs for your child. Follow your heart. Look deep if it feels good. Leave and do not turn back if something makes you feel bad. Your feelings will be your best guide. As you tour programs, write notes in the note sections and try to complete the ratings as you feel them while you are touring a program. After touring several programs, the program-rating pages will help you to remember the qualities you liked best about each program. Remember, high-quality child care and education programs are difficult to get into. You will probably be put on a waiting list, so it is important to start your search for child care early. The earlier the better! I used to tell parents, “Call me when the stick turns blue.”
