Hold on to Your Kids Book Description:

Children take their lead from their friends: being ‘cool’ matters more than anything else. Shaping values, identity and codes of behaviour, peer groups are often far more influential than parents. But this situation is far from natural, and it can be dangerous – it undermines family cohesion, interferes with healthy development, and fosters a hostile and sexualized youth culture. Children end up becoming conformist, anxious and alienated. In Hold on to Your Kids, acclaimed physician and bestselling author Gabor Maté joins forces with Gordon Neufeld, a psychologist with a reputation for penetrating to the heart of complex parenting. Together they pinpoint the causes of this breakdown and offer practical advice on how to ‘reattach’ to sons and daughters, establish the hierarchy at home, make children feel safe and understood, and earn back your children's loyalty and love. This updated edition also addresses the unprecedented parenting challenges posed by the rise of digital devices and social media. By helping to reawaken our instincts, Maté and Neufeld empower parents to be what nature intended: a true source of contact, security and warmth for their children.

Hold on to Your Kids Book Description:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER This parenting classic on one of the most disturbing and misunderstood trends of our time--peers replacing parents in the lives of children--is now more relevant than ever. The latest edition includes new material on how social media and video game culture are affecting our children, and what parents can do. In Hold On to Your Kids, Dr. Neufeld and Dr. Maté explore the phenomenon of peer orientation: the troubling tendency of children and youth to look to their peers for direction--for a sense of right and wrong, for values, identity and codes of behaviour. But peer orientation undermines family cohesion, poisons the school atmosphere, and fosters an aggressively hostile and sexualized youth culture. It provides a powerful explanation for schoolyard bullying and youth violence; it is an escalating trend that has never been adequately described or contested until Hold On to Your Kids. Once understood, it becomes self-evident--as do the solutions.

Violence Proof Your Kids Now Book Description:

With images from the Columbine tragedy etched in our minds, America is facing a crisis of epidemic proportion. Disaffected youth are rapidly becoming the norm, while grades and self-esteem plummet and violence in our schools escalates. We all want to keep our kids safe, but what can we do? We can't lock them in the house forever. In Violence Proof Your Kids Now, an award-winning, nationally recognized school violence expert shows every parent and teacher how to identify and deal with the current youth crisis. Erika V. Shearin Karres, a survivor of the twentieth century's single most violent episode, the Holocaust, consciously chose to become an "anti-violence expert." She has distilled her thirty-plus years of research into eight telltale signs of a violent child and offers seventy-seven successful strategies to keep our kids safe.
