Cancer is a difficult topic for any parent, caregiver or educator to explain to a child. This book is designed to help kids, including children with autism spectrum disorder or other additional needs, to understand what it means when someone in their life has cancer.

On Blossoming: Frank and Practical Advice on Our Bodies, Sexual Health, Sensuality, Pleasure, Orgasm, and More
This is not your typical sex ed book. Instead of typically puritanical views on sex and puberty, On Blossoming focuses on incorporating the principles of pleasure into sex education for our youth and creates a new paradigm of human sexuality. This book takes on a taboo topic in our culture backed with a compelling mixture of research and personal experience. Author Gia Lynne's biggest question is, how can we expect to have sexual health if we do not learn about pleasure before our first sexual experiences? Our collective social stigma around talking about sex-most of all good sex-prevents these conversations from happening and it's having a detrimental effect on our teens of all genders and our society as a whole. On Blossoming will teach you and your teens: How to navigate conversations on the birds and the bees ; How to effectively communicate with parents, friends, and partners; To explore the differences between sensuality and sexuality; To learn about the entire anatomy of the clitoris; How sex can be open, communicative, and fun every time; and How to know and explore your own body. Written for people of all ages and genders, it's time to rework the standard script of sexual education and fill in the gaps. Instead of primarily addressing the medical aspects of puberty or potential problems, Lynne presents solutions and provides tools for creating positive experiences in the realms of communication, pleasure, and happiness.

Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines
'It was like being in a car with the gas pedal slammed down to the floor and nothing to do but hold on and pretend to have some semblance of control. But control was something I'd lost a long time ago.' Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age 11. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to.It took a violent relapse one summer to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. He paints an extraordinary picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself.

Growing Up with Diabetes: What Children Want Their Parents to Know
A chance to step into your child's shoes. When your child was diagnosed with diabetes your first priority was probably to learn everything you could about diabetes and how to manage it. Whether your child is a youngster or a teenager, you've done your best to help with injections, meals and snacks, and the many other elements of a diabetes management program. But through all this, you may be overlooking the importance of your child's social and emotional development. Children want to be normal, and diabetes makes them different. Many well-meaning parents inadvertently focus too much on their child's diabetes, and not enough on other aspects of their child's life. This unique book, written by a young woman who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 11, gives you the opportunity to understand and relate to your child's feelings. Drawing on the author's own experiences and those of the many children and young adults she's counseled, this sensitive guide explains: How children feel when they're diagnosed Why diabetes is a bigger adjustment for you than for your child How to encourage a healthy approach to diabetes The importance of diabetes education How to make your child's life as normal as possible Dealing with outside forces (school, day care, relatives, etc.) Eliminating the power struggle for independence in adolescence Books to Fund A Cure A portion of this book's proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International, a not-for-profit voluntary health agency, whose primary objective is to support and fund research to find the cause, cure, treatment, and prevention of diabetes and its complications.
