How can you protect your kids if you don't know where they are? Few parents would let their children wander the streets at all hours or meet with strangers, but kids do that and more on the internet without even leaving their bedrooms. Do you know the people your daughter chats with online every night? Is your son being cyberbullied? Have you seen the videos your kids are downloading? Michael Carr-Gregg urges parents to venture into the online world inhabited by their children and get in touch with their day-to-day lives. He explains what kids get up to, provides guidelines for family internet safety and advises how to minimise the risks without limiting your children's freedom to learn, explore and communicate online. The internet has changed parenting forever. Carr-Gregg provides an essential guide to the online world of today's real wired children, from toddlers to teenagers.

As a parent, you want practical, accurate and user friendly information to help raise your teen. You want to know what's considered normal adolescent behaviour, how to determine whether your child is on a good path, how to encourage your teen's healthy development, and how to get help when problems arise. What Parents Need to Know about Teens is an easy-to-read booklet that addresses these issues. Author David A. Wolfe is a clinical psychologist who has worked with children and teens for more than 25 years. He holds the RBC Chair in Children's Mental Health at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. In his work, Dr. Wolfe has often encountered parents who describe feeling overwhelmed with the problems their teenage children bring home, especially when some of these difficulties didn't exist when they were growing up themselves. This booklet is a response to parents' concerns. Written in chatty, down-to-earth language, What Parents Need to Know about Teens addresses the facts and myths of teen life and teens' relationships with parents. The booklet focuses on strategies to help parents prepare teens for new responsibilities and the pressures that may accompany them. Each section of the booklet is devoted to a different parenting strategy: 1. Be an effective parent: Balance sensitivity and firmness. 2. Place an emphasis on safety, responsibility and obeying rules. 3. Teach-don't just criticize. 4. Understand your teen's development-and how it affects your relationship. 5. Understand the pressures-and the risks-your teen faces.

While the children seemed happy on the outside, deep inside they were suffering from the hidden trauma that so many adopted children carry with them. Because of the rejection, neglect, and abandonment they experience in the first few months of life, some adopted children are imprinted with the subconscious belief that at their core they are unlovable and worthless, even if their new parents are nurturing and loving. What Every Adoptive Parent Needs to Know offers adoptive parents and parents-to-be a solution. By following the threads of the Richards’ moving story, clarified by insightful analysis and practical advice from family therapist Kate Cremer-Vogel, readers of this compelling book discover it is never too late to heal the wounded heart of a child. This remarkable true-life story of raising two adopted children is a tale of hope and resilience, of two parents unprepared for their children’s psychological wounds that only time would reveal. Most importantly, it shows that profound healing is possible when adoptive families realize that traditional parenting is not enough.
