Hvor meget bør mit barn egentlig spille hver dag? Er det problematisk at se youtube i timevis?

Gordon Neufeld og Gabor Matés moderne klassiker og internationale bestseller fra 2004 (Hold on to Your Kids. Why Parents Need to Matter more than Peers) er en åben invitation til alle forældre, der ønsker at opdrage deres barn på en måde, så den vigtige RELATION – nemlig den til forældre og andre vigtige voksne i barnets liv – altid er i fokus. Men bogen er ikke kun skrevet med henblik på forældreopgaven. Alle med interesse for børn og unge, ja, alle der arbejder professionelt i feltet, kan høste uvurderlige erkendelser gennem bogen. Og i særlig grad alle unge studerende inden for felter, der beskæftiger sig med dette arbejde – pædagoger, lærere, psykologer, sagsbehandlere, socialrådgivere, sygeplejersker, læger etc. Bogen er banebrydende inden for pædagogisk forståelse og handling og oplagt som fast pensum på en lang række studier. Gordon Neufelds sigte med bogen er at hjælpe os til at genskabe den intuitive viden om de vigtige relationer, som danner grundlag for barnets mulighed for at blomstre og udfolde sit potentiale som menneske. Udgangspunktet for Neufelds paradigme er hans helt særlige tilknytningsmodel. Tilknytningsmodellen beskriver 6 trin, som ideelt set skulle udfolde sig i barnets første 6 til 9 leveår. Den dybeste tilknytning er til eksempel den, der ligger til grund for, at det kan lykkes for et menneske at bryde den sociale arv. Tilknytningsmodellen åbner døre til en dyb indsigt i menneskenaturen, og med den som baggrund bliver barnets modningsprocesser forståelige, og dermed alt det, der befordrer disse, og alt det, der kan komme i vejen. Når vi ved, hvad der kunne være, har vi mulighed for at se, hvad der mangler, og finde vejen tilbage.Gordon Neufeld tager i bogen armtag med mange aspekter af vores samfund, som ikke er befordrende for vores børn. Han er på børnenes side, og han er på forældrenes side, og de voksne med ansvar for børns udvikling. Bogen har siden dens udgivelse i 2004 været en øjenåbner for forældre og folk i hele verden, der på den ene eller anden måde arbejder professionelt med børn, og den er p.t. oversat til 25 sprog. I genudgivelsen fra 2013 har Gordon Neufeld tilføjet 2 kapitler (som også er med i den danske udgivelse) om opdragelse i den digitale tidsalder. Han kommer her ind på, hvad det er for stærke kræfter, vi har med at gøre i de digitale medier, og hvordan vi kan gennemskue deres påvirkning på vores børns udvikling, så vi kan navigere i dette helt nye felt og styre det, der skal styres, som ansvarlige voksne, i stedet for at børn og unge bliver kørt over af det.Bogen er skrevet i et klart, tilgængeligt og fortællende sprog, hvor forfatteren tager os med ind i hverdagssituationer med børn og forældre, som de fleste af os sikkert kan genkende. Bogens indhold er relevant for forældre til børn i alle aldre, fra småbørn og helt frem til voksne børn. Oversættelsen fra canadisk til dansk varetages af Grete Lyngdorf, der gennem tretten år har formidlet Gordon Neufelds materiale til danske forældre og professionelle gennem NEUFELD KURSER I DANMARK.
Hvordan tager man som forældre eller professionel fat på samtaler med unge, der ryger hash? Hvad gør man, når den unges forbrug står i vejen for det gode ungdomsliv? Hvordan skaber man dialog i stedet for konflikt? Det giver denne bog konkrete og vedkommende bud på. På baggrund af sit mangeårige arbejde i Stofrådgivningen giver bogens forfatter, familieterapeut Anine Boisen, et væld af gode råd og konkret viden om unge og hash. Bogen rummer også casehistorier med brugbare ideer til, hvordan man – som forældre eller professionel – kan forstå og håndtere de problemer, der følger med, når unge har et forbrug af hash. Med udgangspunkt i fakta om hash og en nuanceret forståelse af, hvad det vil sige at være teenager, beskriver bogen en række centrale temaer: de første samtaler om hash, når unge lyver og stjæler, forældres afmagt og samarbejde omkring konflikter og forandringer. Bogen henvender sig til forældre, lærere, ungerådgivere, socialrådgivere og andre, der er tæt på unge, der har et forbrug af hash. "Nyt skal læres, gammelt skal kasseres, der skal tages hensyn til rusmidlernes virkning på den unge og til, hvem den unge er. I den situation er der brug for støtte, råd og vejledning. Det er her, denne bog kommer med viden og en række vigtige råd og ideer til handlemuligheder." - Henrik Rindom, misbrugsekspert og speciallæge i psykiatri

Vi står over for at skulle betragte forældrerollen med et fornyet og opdateret syn. Det er ikke bare et spørgsmål om at få nogle nye værktøjer eller en ny praksis. Det er at vågne op fra vores mindset og etablerede forestilling om: ”Hvad er en mor? Hvad er en far?”Det sker ikke ved primært at observere, mestre og håndtere vores børn, men ved at observere og håndtere os selv og kigge mere indad. Vores største håb og ønske er at give vores børn al den kærlighed, vi har til dem, og det er ikke altid lige nemt! At give kærlighed er også at give nærvær, og det sker ved, at vi forbinder os med vores børn. Men for at kunne forbinde os autentisk, er vi nødt til at kunne forbinde os med os selv.Denne bog er til dig, der ønsker at blive en endnu mere bevidstgjort forælder med en tidssvarende og forstærket bevidsthed i dit forældreskab. Om forfatterenSigne Westi Løvland (f. 1975) beskriver sit syn på, hvilke udfordringer, der præger forældre i vor tid, og hvordan vi bedst møder dem. Hun skriver ud fra professionel og personlig erfaring som mor til fire børn, psykoterapeut MPF, lærer, konsulent og foredragsholder.Den bevidste forælder handler om at skabe en bedre og tættere forbindelse og kontakt til vores børn, blandt andet ved at blive mere opmærksom og bevidst om vore egne overbevisninger, mønstre og tillærte vaner.
Hvilken hylde sætter du dig på i dit moderskab, når din fregnekindede solskinsknægt smækker døren i og går i puberteten?Mød en mor, der går i spåner, da hendes ældste går i puppe, og følg med i scener fra familiens spisekøkkendramaer, erindringsglimt fra årene med hvalpede drenge og forvirringen over hendes egen nye rolle, nu hvor den ældste søn giver slip på sin mor.Det konkrete kaos i en kernefamilie i forandring bliver vævet sammen med betragtninger om ægteskab, forældreskab og venskab i en verden, hvor vi mere end nogensinde har brug for hinanden.Med blik for de normer, alle forældre må kæmpe sig fri af for at skabe deres egne, beretter Julia Lahme vittigt og eftertænksomt om den forvandling, hun selv måtte gå igennem, da hendes ældste gik fra ’altid åben’ til ’lukket pga. ombygning’.Det er genkendelige historier om lange nætter og alt for korte dage, om morfar i Afrika, jagten på Danmarks svar på enhjørningen: den umulige bæver, projektledelse som copingstrategi og om at være moren i midten, også når de små vokser én over hovedet.En selvstændig efterfølger til bestselleren Hvor lagde jeg babyen?
As seen in Time, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and on CBS This Morning, BBC, PBS, CNN, and NPR, iGen is crucial reading to understand how the children, teens, and young adults born in the mid-1990s and later are vastly different from their Millennial predecessors, and from any other generation.With generational divides wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today's rising generation of teens and young adults. Born in the mid-1990s up to the mid-2000s, iGen is the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone. With social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen spends less time with their friends in personperhaps contributing to their unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time, how they behave, and in their attitudes toward religion, sexuality, and politics. They socialize in completely new ways, reject once sacred social taboos, and want different things from their lives and careers. More than previous generations, they are obsessed with safety, focused on tolerance, and have no patience for inequality. With the first members of iGen just graduating from college, we all need to understand them: friends and family need to look out for them; businesses must figure out how to recruit them and sell to them; colleges and universities must know how to educate and guide them. And members of iGen also need to understand themselves as they communicate with their elders and explain their views to their older peers. Because where iGen goes, so goes our nationand the world.
This text seeks to examine the factors that cause teenage violence, risky sexual behaviour (including risk of AIDS), and alcohol and drug abuse. It also addresses the guidelines that should be followed by those who seek to reduce societal costs resulting from the disfunctional behaviour of young people unable to make the transition from adolescence to young adulthood without special assistance and support.
Betty Staley explores the vibrant and exuberant nature of adolescence, offering a wise guide to raising a teenager, including: the stages of adolescence, the search for the self, the birth of the intellect, the release of feelings, male-female differences, temperaments and character
In this classic edition top scholars in family research examine the nature and origin of adolescents' contemporary patterns of sexual and romantic relationships, from the evolutionary roots of these behaviors to policies and programs that represent best practices for addressing these issues in schools and communities. The text offers interdisciplinary expertise from scholars of psychology, social work, sociology, demography, economics, human development and family studies, and public policy. Adolescents and young adults today face very different choices about family formation than did their parents' generation, given such societal changes as the rise in cohabitation, the increase in divorce rates, and families having fewer children. This book examines these demographic trends and provides a backdrop against which adolescents and emerging adults form and maintain romantic and sexual relationships.This book addresses such questions as:*What are the ways in which early family and peer relationships give rise to romantic relationships in the late adolescent and early adult years?*How do early romantic and sexual relationships influence individuals' subsequent development and life choices, including family formation?*To what extent are current trends in romantic and sexual relationships in adolescence and emerging adulthood problematic for individuals, families, and communities, and what are the most effective ways to address these issues at the level of practice, program, and policy?Ideal as a supplement in graduate or advanced undergraduate courses on interpersonal (romantic) relationships, adolescent development, human sexuality, couples and/or family and conflict, sociology of children and youth, family therapy taught in human development and family studies, clinical or counseling psychology, social work, sociology, communications, and human sexuality this book also appreciated by researchers and clinicians/counselors who work with families and adolescents.
Creating Meaning in Young Adulthood explores the ways in which young adults are creating meanings in life through their relationships with the world. Chapters synthesize research in the fields of child psychology, counseling, multicultural education, and existential-humanistic psychology to offer readers a contemporary understanding of the greater challenges for growth and development that youth currently face. Using ample case studies, the book also sets forth a resilience-based approach for helping readers facilitate the healing, growth, and enlightenment of young adults.
This book focuses on resiliency among gender expansive young people in different cultures, exploring how they engage with and leverage school, media, and religious contexts. The contributions in this volume advance the scholarship regarding the health and well-being of gender expansive young people, at a time where a plethora of recent legislation has limited and removed sundry rights of transgender individuals. While previous scholarship identified disparities among transgender youth, this book approaches resiliency from multiple lenses - from school-based clubs as tools for engagement in advocacy, to proactivity and self-care as strategies to mitigate struggles. These empirical chapters focus on diverse contexts across different countries including Canada, the USA and Australia. The book also includes important commentaries from leading scholars in the field debating the controversial issue of transgender youth "e;desisting"e; (to no longer be transgender).This book will be of interest to those studying recent legislation on transgender rights, as well as to those with a broader interest in studying gender in different contexts. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Transgenderism.
The transition to adulthood is a complex process, and college is pivotal to this experience. The Science of College aids entering college students--and the people who support them--in navigating college successfully, with up-to-date recommendations based upon real student situations, sound social science research, and the collective experiences of faculty, lecturers, advisors, and student support staff. The stories captured in this book highlight how the challenges that college students encounter vary in important ways based on demographics and social backgrounds. Despite these varied backgrounds, all students are more likely to have successful college experiences if they invest in their communities. Universities have many resources available, but as this book will show, students need to learn when to access which resources and how best to engage with people serving students. This includes having a better awareness of the different roles held by university faculty and staff, and navigating who to go to for what, based upon understanding their distinct sets of expertise and approaches to support. There is no single template for student success. Yet, this book highlights common issues that many students face and provides science-based advice for how to navigate college. Each topic covered is geared towards the life stage that most college students are in: emerging adulthood. In addition to the student-focused chapters, the book includes appendixes with activities for students, tips for parents, and methods information for faculty. Supplemental website materials suggest classroom activities for instructors who adopt this book within first-year seminars and general education courses.

Our teenagers are suffering more than ever. College counseling centers are overwhelmed, parents are worried, and mental health issues are increasingly common in young people between the ages of 12 and 20. Parents are particularly concerned about how to help their kids achieve a safe, healthy, and fulfilling college experience in light of soaring rates of depression and anxiety in young people. Mood Prep 101: A Parent's Guide to Preventing Depression and Anxiety in College-Bound Teens answers the question most parents have - "e;What can we do?"e; - when it comes to college-bound teens who may be vulnerable to anxiety and depression. Written with humor and compassion by award-winning psychologist and psychotherapist Carol Landau, this timely book empowers parents by providing strategies for helping their children psychologically prepare for college and adulthood, as well as by addressing and alleviating the anxiety parents themselves may feel about kids leaving home for the first time. Young people need a solid foundation of parental support in order to succeed at college; as such, Landau shows parents how they can promote healthy communication and problem-solving skills, and how they can help young people learn to better regulate emotions and tolerate distress. Landau also describes stressors typical amongst college students, and explains how to identify vulnerabilities to anxiety and depression, including perfectionism, social isolation, and the feeling of being "e;different"e;. The book outlines how a parent can help students find a therapist and suggests such evidence- based treatments as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT). Finally, the book sheds light on some of the risky behaviors commonly found on today's college campuses, such as substance use and unsafe sexual relationships, and how they can exacerbate or even trigger anxiety and depression in young people. Landau concludes by calling on parents and educators to back away from the stressful, competitive focus of the college admissions process and turn instead to the values of curiosity, collaboration and empathy.
Parenting an anxious child means facing constant challenges and questions: When should parents help children avoid anxiety-provoking situations, and when should they encourage them to face their fears? How can parents foster independence while still supporting their children? How can parents reduce the hold their child's anxiety has taken over the entire family?Breaking Free of Child Anxiety and OCD: A Scientifically Proven Program for Parents is the first and only book to provide a completely parent-based treatment program for child and adolescent anxiety. Parents will learn how to alleviate their children's anxiety by changing the way they themselves respond to their children's symptoms--importantly, parents are not required to impose changes on their children's behavior. Instead, parents are shown how to replace their own accommodating behaviors (which allow anxiety to flourish) with supportive responses that demonstrate both acceptance of children's difficulties and confidence in their ability to cope. From understanding child anxiety and OCD, to learning how to talk with an anxious child, to avoiding common traps and pitfalls (such as being overly protective or demanding) to identifying the ways in which parents have been enabling a child's anxious behaviors, this book is full of detailed guidance and practical suggestions. Worksheets are included to help parents translate the book's suggestions into action, and the book's compassionate and personable tone will make it a welcoming resource for any concerned parent.
Mary Pipher believes adolescence is an especially precarious time for girls, a time when the fearless, outgoing child is replaced by an unhappy and insecure teenager. Her view is that for the most part it is our look-obsessed, media-saturated, 'girl-poisoning' culture - and not parents - which is to blame.
