Abstract
Grief can be complicated and painful. Our memories, relationships, good times, and worries are unique. No two people will experience grief in the same way.
But there are networks for understanding our reactions when someone dies. This book will help make sense of grief, why you feel the way you do, and how you can cope. Experiences from other young people who have been through grief show how the ideas could work in real life and help you understand your own story.

Abstract
Every parent wants the same thing: for their child to enjoy a long and fulfilling life. But what happens when things don't go according to plan? What happens when parents have to become advocates for their child's healthcare needs? Who decides what is in a child's 'best interests'?
Stephanie Nimmo faced these questions first-hand when her daughter, Daisy, was diagnosed with a life-limiting condition as a baby. Seen through the lens of Stephanie's own experiences, this sensitive book delves into the complex world of medical ethics and pediatric palliative care. From recognizing tipping points to the importance of building relationships with palliative care teams well before crisis, this book explores how medical professionals can better support families throughout their child's care.
Interviews with clinicians and snapshots from the lives of patients' families provide insight into the realities of life on both sides of the hospital bed. Compassionate explanations of the conflicting pressures in the hospital system foster understanding and help medical professionals and families work together.

Abstract
You might think cities are the last place to find nature. But nature is actually right outside your door - you just need to know where to look. From the roofs of apartments to parking lots, cities are bursting with plants and animals.
In this fascinating and interactive guide, kids will learn about how birds build their nests on bridges, where salamanders and toads hide, and how plants push through sidewalk cracks. Alongside these awe-inspiring facts, Peter shares engaging, science-based activities, including how to:
- Identify animal sounds
- Raise a slime mold
- Make your own compass
- Collect plants to start your own herbarium
- See shooting stars
- And more
Peter also provides information on what animals thrive in cities and which could use our help, as well as tips for staying safe and having fun while embarking on a nature adventure. Perfect for outdoor education, What?s Wild Outside Your Door? equips kids in urban and suburban environments with the knowledge to engage with the natural world around them, and the confidence to go explore.

Abstract
Voici la nouvelle édition revue et mise à jour de ce bestseller de Benoit Hammarrenger pour mieux comprendre l?opposition et les comportements difficiles des enfants de 4 à 12 ans. Le neuropsychologue y communique son expertise de manière simple et accessible, car selon lui : « les parents et les intervenants seront nettement plus efficaces s?ils parviennent à cibler les causes sous-jacentes aux manifestations d?opposition du jeune et à intervenir à la source du comportement ».
Selon Benoit, l?opposition est souvent un symptôme, une manifestation visible (et parfois difficile à comprendre) de quelque chose d?autre qui ne va pas. Ainsi, dans bien des cas, elle émerge de facteurs présents dans l?environnement, sur lesquels il est possible d?agir. Il explique comment, en s?attardant plus précisément au développement du cerveau, aux styles d?autorité, aux conflits familiaux, à l?anxiété, au TDAH, au syndrome de Gilles de la Tourette et à la douance, entre autres thèmes abordés. Des interventions spécifiques, ciblant les causes réelles des comportements d?opposition, sont ensuite détaillées.

Abstract
With more than 150,000 copies sold, this fully revised and updated edition of the classic self-help guide for parents offers cutting-edge, proven-effective techniques for helping your child overcome anxiety and thrive.
Most children are afraid of the dark. Some fear monsters under the bed. But at least ten percent of children have excessive fears and worries―phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder―that can hold them back and keep them from fully enjoying childhood. If your child suffers from any of these forms of anxiety, this book offers new, practical, and evidence-based proven tools that can help.
Now in its third edition, Helping Your Anxious Child has been expanded and updated to include the latest research and techniques for managing child anxiety, and includes new information on helping very young children and adolescents; as well as anxiety in children with behavioral problems, learning difficulties, or medical conditions. The book offers proven-effective skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and mindfulness and relaxation techniques to aid you in helping your child overcome intense fears and worries. You'll also find out how to relieve your child's anxious feelings while parenting with compassion.
Parents will learn:
How to help your child practice ?detective thinking? to recognize irrational worries
What to do when your child becomes frightened
How to expose your child gently and gradually to challenging situations
How to help your child learn important social skills
Also included are links to a free downloadable workbook for parents, and an activity book for kids. The kid-friendly, illustrated activity book will help your child take an active role in learning to manage their anxiety, as they learn and practice the skills outlined in Helping Your Anxious Child.

Abstract
Using a model of 'mindfulness play' to help children to achieve wellbeing, this book encourages children to build awareness of their inner and outer worlds. This multidimensional approach, designed and developed by an experienced speech and language therapist, centres on the importance of play activities to build psychological, emotional and social wellbeing and looks into the pivotal role adults play in supporting a child's self-esteem. By promoting the growth of self-esteem in different areas of a child's life, the book shows how adults help children to establish a firm basis of wellbeing from which they can flourish. The strategies in this ebook guide show how imagination, mindfulness and creativity can enhance our daily interactions with children, and the accompanying activity books in the series encourage children to build life skills through structured experiences and through experimenting with different ways of thinking and 'being'.
