Crazy-Stressed: Saving Today's Overwhelmed Teens with Love, Laughter, and the Science of Resilience
Bradley, Michael J.
New research tells us: our kids are not all right. Too many are struggling with excessive academic loads, extracurricular demands, sleep deprivation, and 24/7 connectivity, causing epidemic rates of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and suicide. While teen brains are hardwired for risk-taking and overactive emotions, their coping abilities are at all-time lows.In response, Dr. Michael J. Bradley first explains what drives adolescent anger, depression, and negative behaviors, with insights into their unprecedented world today and into the latest teen brain science. Then, with proven strategies from his three decades of practice and his own years as a father, Dr. Bradley explains how to connect with your teen to build their life-saving resiliency. Resilience-focused parenting helps kids regain their footing, overcome obstacles, and successfully cope with the challenges ahead.
Good Things Happen to People You Hate: Essays
Former Senior Editor for Gothamist Rebecca Fishbein’s adult life has been a dramatic reflection of New York media itself - constantly evolving in unexpected ways and seemingly always on the edge of disaster. In short, Rebecca has seen it all - from 3 bedbug infestations, to being fired, to being yelled at while working at American Apparel, to losing all her stuff in a freak fire, to being bullied online by angry Taylor Swift fans.But the real humor and meat of the collection come from Rebecca's unwavering honesty and unflinching examination of her struggles with alcohol, anxiety, depression, compulsive lying, female beauty standards, and a slew of failed cowoker/roommate/friend semi-relationships are dark, insightful, and hilarious.As Jia Tolentino commented, the era of the personal essay ended with the election - this is not your grandmother's millennial essay collection. Rebecca’s writing is relatable without being preachy and conveys a message of resilience by example, not by moral. Readers will recognize the world they themselves see - a disastrous president and a scary socioeconomic landscape - in Becca’s writing and find comfort in her humor and a snarky but incisive friend in her writing.

Stress-Free Discipline: Simple Strategies for Handling Common Behavior Problems
Many moments in parenting seem unavoidable. Your preschooler will throw fits. Your third-grader will try to get out of doing homework--even if it means lying. A budding tween will dish out insults. And a teenager will simply take off for who knows where. At each stage, they are trying to test your boundaries (and sometimes your patience). While this may be a natural part of growing up, that doesn't mean any of these actions are acceptable or excusable. So what does a parent do?Stress-Free Discipline knows that the one-size-fits-all discipline methods many experts tout can actually be too narrow for some concerns. Instead, parents need to learn how to determine the root cause behind their child's issue, which will then help explain what is driving the behavior, why it's probably more normal than the parent realizes, how to prevent further escalations, and how to instill self-control. Once parents grasp the underlying motivation, they can select the strategy that fits their child's age, temperament, and issue--including role modeling, setting limits, positive reinforcement, negative consequences, disengagement--and deploy it calmly and with confidence. Complete with an arsenal of proven techniques, as well as examples and exercises throughout to help parents personalize to their own unique situation, Stress-Free Discipline is the one-stop resource that will prepare parents for any challenge from any stage. Don't lead home without it!
