This is the must-have book for parents of young people who want to keep their children safe, whole and happy.
Teens and tweens are struggling with social media, relationships, and so much of what modern life is throwing at them. It's impossible for parents to be experts on all the new challenges their children are facing. That's why it's essential to turn to a real expert.
Collett Smart is a psychologist, teacher, lecturer, writer - and a mum of three. She knows that it is crucial for parents to discuss uncomfortable, yet fundamentally important topics with their children - and this book tells parents why and how.
If you're a parent who feels like you just don't know how to talk to your children about some of these difficult topics, this book has all the tools you need. There is invaluable advice on how to talk about some of the most confronting subjects, including pornography, misogyny and harassment, objectification and body image. There's also important information about emotional intelligence, empathy, respect and manners.
Whether you want to prepare your child for the years ahead or you have an issue that needs to be addressed right now, this is the must-have book to help keep your children safe, whole and happy in these challenging times.
