He'll Be OK: Growing Gorgeous Boys Into Good Men 10th Anniversary Edition, Celia Lashlie
1 He'll Be OK: Growing Gorgeous Boys Into Good Men 10th Anniversary Edition
Celia Lashlie New Zealand Harper Collins 2015 1775540804 / 9781775540809 10th Anniversary Edition Soft cover New Book 23.4 x 15.4 x 2.0 cm 
The 10th anniversary edition of the iconic book that takes parents into the mysterious world of boys, with new foreword, introduction and tribute to the author. THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF A PARENTING CLASSIC How do you raise boys to men in a world where trouble beckons at every turn? How do you make sure they learn the 'right' lessons, stay out of danger, find a path to follow? How do you ensure they'll be OK? Celia Lashlie has some of the answers. After years working in the prison service, she knows what can happen when boys make the wrong choices. She also knows what it's like to be a parent - she raised a son on her own and feared for his survival. As a crucial part of the Good Man Project, she talked to 180 classes of boys. Her insights into what boys need - and what parents can do to help them - are ground-breaking. In this new edition of her honest, no-nonsense and best-selling book, Celia reveals what goes on inside the world of boys. With clarity and insight, she offers parents - especially mothers - practical and reassuring advice on raising their boys to become good, loving, articulate men. "Celia did an enormous amount of work, particularly standing up for at risk young people, and she made an enormous contribution." - New Zealand Prime Minister John Key

Help Yourself for Teens: Real-life Advice for Real-life Challenges Facing Young Adults, Dave Pelzer
2 Help Yourself for Teens: Real-life Advice for Real-life Challenges Facing Young Adults
Dave Pelzer UK Penguin 2006 0718147944 / 9780718147945 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
'The bottom line: Your life's outcome is solely up to you. If you can get out of bed in the morning, go to the bathroom, get dressed and nuke something in the microwave without any help, then you are capable of doing, achieving and handling just about anything that life can throw at you. You can do this. You can live up to your potential. And at your age, frankly, I expect you to.' Straight-talking, unpatronising, inspirational advice from bestselling author Dave Pelzer. Before he became a teenager, Pelzer was subjected to horrific physical and mental abuse from his mother. At the age of 12 he was rescued by his teachers and placed into foster care. During his teens the long road to recovery began and today Pelzer, now a father of a teenage son himself, spends much of his working life talking to young adults in schools and foster care centres. Pelzer's message is simple and powerful: identify problems, face them, think about where you want to be in life and never, ever give up on yourself.

Teenage Depression Warning Signs: Practical Guidance and Insights, Michelle Ferry
3 Teenage Depression Warning Signs: Practical Guidance and Insights
Michelle Ferry Australia Three LLLs Success 2011 0987191209 / 9780987191205 Soft cover New Book 
A new book about teenage depression and suicide for parents and families - Produced in collaboration with Youth Focus - Prevention of Youth Suicide and Depression - Explores self-harm, alcohol and drug dependence, isolation, anxiety, depression Recently launched by Mental Health Minister Helen Morton (October 2011), Teenage Depression Warning Signs will help adults, particularly parents and grandparents, as they support children through adolescence. This book is an ideal resource for those who are concerned about whether the teen in their care or close to them is in fact being a 'typical teenager' or has a mental health issue, like depression, requiring attention. Written by parents with hands-on-experience in living with teens with mental health issues, this user friendly book shows readers what to look out for and provides steps on what to do if they detect a mental health problem. Teenage Depression Warning Signs contains 108 pages with a theme to each story from a teenager in crisis. Each story in the book is prefaced with a graphic of a warning sign and a description of the warning sign, followed by an inspirational quote, a teen's personal story and an action step to act upon. 'Parents know their kids better than anyone so are well placed to notice the Warning Signs of depression and suicidal thoughts in their children, but as this book shows, mental illness is often a hidden phenomenon, even to parents,' Mrs Morton said. 'Bulimia, cyber bullying, self-harm, dependence on alcohol and drugs, isolation, anxiety, depression are often experienced by teenagers in silence. There are signs to look for, and this book will increase our chances of finding them and intervening early before their illness worsens.' Some facts to consider: - Suicide is the leading cause of death for young people aged 15 to 19 years - Three of every four suicides are young males - 75 per cent of adults who experience mental illness are first diagnosed in adolescence - most before the age of 15 years As parents, caregivers, a teacher, coaches, confidants and role-models, your children's positive well-being is vital. By reading this book, you could indeed help save a young life. Australian.

4 Good Thinking: A Teenager's Guide to Managing Stress and Emotion Using CBT
Sarah Edelman and Louise Remond Australia ABC Books 2017 0733338283 / 9780733338281 Soft cover New Book 23.5 x 15.5 x 1.7 cm 
Practical help for teenagers navigating negative emotions, stress and self-defeating behaviour. Although most of us pay little attention to our emotions, feelings like anxiety, anger, frustration, guilt and sadness can have a huge impact on our lives. Sometimes we get stuck in negative ways of thinking that perpetuate these emotions, even when what is happening in our lives is not that bad. Teenage years can be a particularly challenging time. There are lots of changes happening – physical, social and mental, and emotional ups and downs are common. Upsetting emotions can lead to self-defeating behaviours, such as avoidance, irritability, withdrawal and brooding. While our emotions seem to have a life of their own, there are actually lots of things we can do to affect them. Learning skills to manage unhelpful emotions can make our lives much easier, now and into the future. They can also help us to get back on track more quickly when things go wrong. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an approach used by therapists all over the world to help people learn to think in a healthy and balanced way, and to bounce back more quickly from stressful events. It provides techniques to help overcome stress, negative emotions and self-defeating behaviour. Bestselling author of Change Your Thinking, Sarah Edelman, and Louise Rémond, a specialist in therapy for teenagers, explain how to use these skills with clarity and compassion. The book contains plenty of real-life examples, practical tools and exercises. These strategies have a proven track record, and are valuable skills for a happier and more confident life.
