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
Dans le cadre de sa pratique comme psychologue et neuropsychologue, Benoît Hammarrenger rencontre souvent des parents qui souhaitent améliorer leurs relations avec leurs enfants et leurs adolescents. Ceux-ci lui racontent alors toutes sortes de situations marquées par des crises, de l'opposition, de la tristesse, de l'anxiété ou de la colère, mais aussi par leur propre sentiment d'impuissance en regard de la distance qu'ils voient s'installer entre les membres de la famille. Or, au fil des ans, Benoît a observé qu'une constante se dégage de toutes les situations de détresse familiale. Cette constante, c'est le besoin de cultiver une meilleure communication, c'est-à-dire une communication profonde et authentique, au-delà des mots, là où se jouent les vrais enjeux. Selon lui, il existe sept clés essentielles à l'établissement d'une communication saine et enrichissante dans la famille :
- Être à l'écoute des émotions des jeunes et se placer en synchronie avec eux
- Laisser une place à la colère en montrant qu'il s'agit d'une émotion légitime
- Cultiver l'empathie et l'esprit d'équipe entre frères et soeurs
- Installer une autorité parentale légitime, que les enfants auront envie de suivre
- Aider les jeunes à mieux connaître leurs parents pour consolider leur lien avec eux
- Composer avec les enjeux spécifiques de l'adolescence
- Tenter de comprendre ce que le jeune vit et cherche vraiment à exprimer, alors que ses habiletés de communication sont encore en construction.
Dans ce nouveau livre accessible et teinté d'humour, Benoît aide les parents à faire alliance avec leur jeune, à créer un climat sain dans la famille... et il en profite pour leur rappeler d'arrêter de parler de bière lorsque leur jeune, lui, parle d'ours

Abstract
Parenting isn't easy, and parenting a child with a Global Developmental Delay, Intellectual Disability, or Autism can be challenging. However, a lot of parenting strategies are straightforward once you get your head around them. With the right knowledge, environment, interactions, responses and understanding, you can help reduce your child's anxiety, build their confidence, and help them develop learning and communication skills.
Dr Joshua Muggleton provides a comprehensive, step-by-step parenting plan that will support you to embed good practice at home from day one. These strategies are designed to work across all neurodevelopmental conditions, and take into account co-occurring conditions such as ADHD, meaning none of the advice in the book requires your child to have a specific diagnosis. Also included are downloadable examples of charts, how-to guides for creating visual resources tailored to your child's individual needs, and bonus downloadable chapters on sleep and siblings.[See introduction for link.]

Children learn boundaries and safety when using screens, and fun things to do when screens are off. As important as screens are in our lives, we all need to unplug, especially children. This reassuring picture book offers children and families a starting point for limiting screen time and making the most of the time you have with your screens and without.
While screens can be helpful and fun, they are not intended for use all the time.The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends consistent limits on screen time for children, and adults should take steps to ensure online safety for kids. With straightforward suggestions, children will learn valuable information about online safety, setting healthy screen-time boundaries, and the importance of screen-free time.
With her trademark mix of empathy and encouragement, author Elizabeth Verdick offers appealing and healthy alternatives to using screens, as well as ways to stay safe and happy when online. Illustrator Marieka Heinlen?s active and vibrant illustrations of young children interacting with their caregivers and families bring the activities and suggestions for screen-free fun to life.

Abstract
As important as screens are in our lives, we all need to unplug, especially children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends consistent limits on screen time for young children. With her trademark mix of empathy and encouragement, author Elizabeth Verdick offers appealing and healthy alternatives to using screens, like singing, swinging, or playing pretend!
The book ends with additional ideas and activities to help adults navigate screen time with toddlers and preschoolers.

Abstract
Empower teens to take charge of their digital lives.
Without avoiding the dark side of technology, this interactive and comprehensive reference book empowers teens to take charge of their digital life and improve their mental health and well-being. Quizzes and exercises guide readers through the process of evaluating their relationships with their screens, social media, and tech in general.
With a frank and humorous approach to a timely topic, award-winning author Alex J. Packer, Ph.D., pulls back the curtain on the hidden aspects of the digital world and shares:
. Signs that screen time is affecting teens? bodies, brains, and relationships
. Tips for protecting their privacy, safety, and reputation.
. Ways social media and algorithms can distort their reality and sense of self
. Tools for finding life balance and resetting their screen scene
Slaying Digital Dragons is a call to action to make the choices that are right for teens. It doesn?t demand ditching smartphones or deactivating social media. Instead, it suggests strategies for playing favorite games and posting on favorite apps, while also doing good in the world and bringing joy and encouragement to others. It invites readers to join the resistance and learn how to thwart the manipulative forces trying to control and profit off their users. And it gives teens what they need to stay safe and take charge of their digital life.
