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
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
A book that encourages children to go and play outside and discover what nature has to offer. Leave the house and roam into the nature: It is a fascinating place, waiting to be conquered by little ones with curious minds. Whether in the garden, park, or a nearby forest, a closer look at nature will draw out budding architects, their first constructions built from stones, branches, and leaves; a thorough investigation of trees will reveal all kinds of insects; and listening to the animals around will teach their sounds. Let?s Play Outdoors is for a new generation of environmentally conscious children, showing them how to interact with their surroundings in a meaningful way. The activities suggested inspire independent learning about animals, plants, and the weather, as well as how to look after the world.

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
You Know, Sex is the first thoroughly modern sex education book for every body, covering not only the big three of puberty?hormones, reproduction, and development?but also power, pleasure, and how to be a decent human being.
Centering young people?s experiences of pressures and joy, risk and reward, and confusion and discovery, there are chapters on body autonomy, gender, consent, pornography, masturbation, stigma, boundaries, harassment,
trauma, and a lot more.
The puberty, anatomy, and reproduction chapters include trans, nonbinary, and intersex bodies and experience, and all of it takes place in our contemporary, media-saturated world (aka, there?s lots of smart phones and social media).
Racially and ethnically diverse, inclusive of cross-disability experience, You Know, Sex is a book for every kind of young person and every kind of family?essential for kids, everyone who knows a kid, and anyone who has ever been a kid.

Abstract
A shot can be a little frightening-but it's quick, as quick as lightning!
When Maxine tells her pets, "Let's get to the vet!"
Scott does not want a shot.
Jervis is nervous, Franky is cranky, Biffy is iffy, and Cary is wary.
Can Maxine help her critters get over their jitters . . . ?
Perfect for any child afraid of shots or needles, this rhyming book in free meter is a "must-read-aloud"! Spunky Maxine takes charge of her vaccine fears with a playful game of pretend: Her adorable stuffed animals are the patients, and Dad steps in as the "vet."
Just in time for the kids' covid vaccine-and relevant to any pediatric shot-Maxine's Critters Get the Vaccine Jitters will delight children ages 5 and under who face this understandable fear. No need to be grouchy about this little ouchy!
