Provides a definitive guide to help parents deal with their children's difficult questions about sex, self-esteem, death, drugs, and other critical issues, explaining how to gain a child' confidence, when to talk about various key topics, how to simplify a complex subject for children of various age groups, and more. Nonverbal Learning Disorder prevents children from understanding nonverbal cues like tone of voice and facial expressions. Though they are extremely bright, these children often have difficulty in social situations and can become depressed, withdrawn or anxious. In this book, a pediatric occupational therapist and the parent of a child with NLD offers practical suggestions that will help parents put their child on the path to a happy, fulfilling life. Where do babies come from? What happens to people when they die? Have you ever used drugs? Why did you get divorced? From toddlers to teens, children are full of questions. How do you answer them? Do you stammer and clam up? Are you truthful? Too truthful? While we all want to give the right answers, we do not always know whether to be detailed or discreet, protective or honest. Getting Through to Your Kids is a parent?s personal advisor, a compendium of words to use when you are at loss. Drawn from the advice and experiences of dozens of psychological, medical, and educational experts, as well as countless parents, this timely and telling book offers answers to all the questions kids are bound to ask. You will learn how to jumpstart a conversation and simplify complicated topics on how to know the best age for kids to learn about sex, drugs, and other difficult subjects, why once is not always enough, and why some topics need to be revisited. Whether some questions are best left unanswered and how to gain a child?s confidence so you can talk about anything

This book is designed for leaders of parent discussion groups utilizing the Active Parenting Today video-based parent education program. The program is designed to help parents instill self-esteem, courage, responsibility, and cooperation in their children so that they will be less likely to use tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs (taod); to raise parental awareness of the threat of taod; and to inform parents of the roles they can play in the prevention process. An introduction explains the Active Parenting Today program and offers advice on group dynamics and leadership skills. The rest of the book is divided into six sections, each of which outlines the plan for a 2-hour parent meeting and is integrated with a 26-minute video to be shown at each meeting. The six sections are entitled: (1) The Active Parent; (2) Instilling Courage and Self-Esteem; (3) Understanding Your Child; (4) Developing Responsibility; (5) Winning Cooperation; and (6) Active Parenting in a Democratic Society. Each section contains specific instructions for the group leader, activities that can be undertaken by the group, discussion topics, and home activities to be used by parents with their own children. An appendix suggests 10 roles that parents can play in the prevention of drug abuse. (Mdm)
