Adolescents (ages 12-20) with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are at risk for academic problems, strained relationships, peer rejection and unsafe behavior -- and parents are often at a loss for how to handle these challenges. If Your Adolescent Has ADHD: An Essential Resource for Parents provides the up-to-date information and down-to-earth support that parents need. It offers an in-depth look at causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and parenting strategies. Contrary to what was once believed, ADHD that starts earlier in childhood usually persists into the teen years. Yet even experienced parents are often caught unawares by the fresh challenges that adolescence brings. This book is one of the few to address ADHD in the context of teen friendships, dating, curfews and sports and extracurricular activities. It also offers practical advice from a leading psychologist on determining readiness to drive and instilling good homework and study habits. This book is a readable, reliable guide to evidence-based treatments for ADHD including behavioral therapy, medications, and educational interventions. Some approaches, such as school-based mentoring, have been little discussed in other parenting books. The authors also offer effective behavioral strategies that can be used at home, including communication and negotiation, problem solving, rewards, strategic punishments and behavioral contracts; and advice for older adolescents on dealing with college, work, and moving away from home.

These will be covered in detail, along with other issues like Internet addiction and suicide. These problems are not only detrimental to teens' mental and physical health, but the legal consequences for injurious behavior have also changed. Identification and prevention are the most important aspects in stopping teenage self-destructive behavior. This book offers a comprehensive look at teens self destructive behavior and gives parents solutions for dealing with it. Helping Your Troubled Teen instructs parents on how to identify an at-risk adolescent and discuss warning signs of injurious behavior, before the problem(s) become severe enough that a child is in crisis and/or legal actions are taken against them. Personal anecdotes and testimonials from both parents and their teenagers who have been confronted with and have engaged in self-destructive behavior are also included.

The Handbook Preparing Your Child for the Journey Through Adolescence makes parents aware of and seeks to help to understand the hardships that await all adolescents in those trying, though exciting years. It goes further to help parents understand their children in totality, to guide parents on how to invest in their children while their children are still young in order to equip them for the trying years that wait ahead. For those whose children have already reached the stage of adolescence the Handbook offers parents guidance as to how to stay involved in their adolescents lives, and how to identify problems the adolescent may be experiencing. An interesting list of Principles for life and a comprehensive list of South African resources are provided to facilitate access to professional help. This book provides all the information needed to teach your children wholesome, Godly principles. It is a fantastic resource. I highly recommend this book to all parents. It would most definitely assist you during the difficult, adolescent years. BRUCE MALONE American Research Leader, Chemical Engineer, Author, Father of Four. With today's increasing emphasis on the problems of teenagers, this book could hardly have been more timely and important. I know Indira Gilbert personally as a motivated and knowledgeable individual, whose qualities could not help but be reflected in her book." PROF.

The young person is the starting point of adolescent catechesis -- he or she has a story to tell, hopes and aspirations to be encouraged, and experiences to share.Living Our Faith meets young adolescents where they are, with materials that honor their experience and invite them to grow in their faith. Incorporating a unique Christian skills dimension into text lessons and family materials, Living Our Faith provides young people (and the adults with whom they share their lives) the opportunity to acquire, develop, and practice important skills of religious experience, gospel living, moral decision making, forecasting, and emotion management.The titles in the Living Our Faith series are based on the foundational themes of our Catholic faith, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops' Renewing the Vision, and diocesan guidelines for young adolescent catechesis, and present fundamental teachings in ways designed to engage and challenge the young adolescent. Lessons integrate doctrine, worship, morality, prayer, community, and active participation in the Church's life and mission.Faith formation of young people does not occur in isolation; it both affects and is affected by the family experience. Living Our Faith: Nurturing the Spiritual Growth of Your Adolescent is an innovative component that encourages adult family members to reinforce Christian life skills in their own lives and to mentor the young adolescent in the same skills.
