Interest in the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal swept the nation when the highly-respected Penn State University football coach and founder of a children’s charity was charged with 51 criminal counts involving 10 prepubescent boys. To Believe a Kid is not merely an exposé of the horrific victimizations told with compelling conviction by the abused but, more importantly, an excellent resource about pedophilia, why sexually abused children rarely disclose, and the long-term effects upon kids. Designed for every citizen raising or working with children, the book details how sports organizations, parents, and educators can better protect kids. It reveals legislative and social responses to this landmark case and describes how PSU stepped forward to lead in the detection, education, and prevention of CSA. Some proceeds will benefit the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC).

At some point or another all parents question whether one or more of their child's behaviors are "normal." She seems sad a lot—is she depressed?He won't focus on his homework—could he have ADHD?He doesn't fit in with other kids—could he have some form of autism? Such anxieties can plague parents, who are often hesitant to seek help or unsure where to turn. Will My Kid Grow Out of It? helps them determine whether their child's behavior is typical for the age or a sign that professional attention may be warranted. Dr. Forrest , a pediatric neuropsychologist, uses lay terms to describe specific sets of behaviors that may be problematic, which professionals may be appropriate to consult with and why, possible diagnoses, and types of effective treatments. Dr. Forrest coaches parents on how to get support and services from schools and the state, and what questions to ask along the way. The book includes a code readers can use to access a free interactive online screening tool and extensive resources including an overview of child brain development, organizations and hotlines for families, a list of commonly used medications for mental health, and a glossary. Bonny Forrest, JD, Ph.D., is a pediatric neuropsychologist who has seen thousands of children. Dr. Forrest maintains a blog on children's mental health (askdrforrest.com), contributes to peer-reviewed journals, is a contributor to TV news programs on NBC, KUSI, FOX, CNN, and other networks; and speaks at conferences on topics concerning children who have mental health and behavioral issues.

Our culture has a problem with eating. Not so much the act of eating itself, but the kinds of foods and the amount of such foods. Foods are everywhere, all the time. But oddly enough, at the very same time, we are obsessed with physical beauty. Or more precisely, a particular, often unobtainable version of beauty. We, as a culture, no longer encourage our children to be accepting for who they are physically. Nor do we seem able to accept ourselves for who we are. We must be thinner, more muscular, less wrinkled and less gray ? all in the name of physical perfection. Temptation is everywhere, and we have lost the ability to say ?no?. And at the same time, when we give our children the message that they should strive for an unattainable physical ideal, what can we expect other than great difficulties with the process of eating? This clinically developed and proven workbook employs the major eating interventions by using model presentations, rehearsal, positive feedback and promoting. The Workbook is designed to reduce levels of guilt, shame, and isolation underlying the eating problem and is written especially for adolescents and pre-adolescents.

Eddie didn't favor anyone in his family. Fair, blonde, and green-eyed, he stood in sharp contrast to the other darker-complected, dark-haired, blue-eyed members. The difference created a rift in the family fabric and his mother singled him out for abuse, irrationally holding him responsible for the family's turmoil. Little Eddie struggled with the severity of his maltreatment but, by age eleven, could no longer handle the circumstances of his life. He decided his only escape would be to die, that by conscious will, he could simply resolve to give up life and cease to exist. Eddie's mind, alerted to his decision, and believing the ultimate goal for any entity was to continue, regardless of form or quality of life, was determined to survive. Panicked at the threat of cessation, his mind made a desperate decision -- it fractured his personality and created Randy from traits that had been repressed in Eddie. Randy, a tough, defiant individual, was created to bring new energy, new life, and stand in defense of the defeated, accepting Eddie. Rising to the challenge, he accepted the responsibility of his creation and was fiercely focused to protecting Eddie while endeavoring to create new circumstances for the life they shared. Randy was proud of his efforts to save Eddie. He knew he was Eddie's paladin, his champion, created for a noble purpose -- to bring Eddie back from the brink of oblivion. After many struggles, Randy's efforts appeared to be successful and the mind considered the possibility of enjoying the existence he'd insured. It pondered the idea of Eddie being involved with the world, rather than merely persisting through the time allotted for the life. Aware of Eddie's inability to interact with the world around him, the mind again fractured the personality creating Jesse, a new facet, an aesthetic personality, focused to tender feelings of love and friendship -- and aspects which determine quality of life. Jesse felt he was created to experience emotions and appreciate beauty, to evolve the repressed side of the personality, to bring stability to the entity. He believed he was born to search for love, to find the emotional equilibrium that would bring the separate identities into harmony. Developed from suppressed characteristics, Jesse was creative and confident, loving and inquisitive, charming and fun loving. And he was on a quest -- determined to achieve his goal. Without Eddie's awareness of them, Randy and Jesse sought to balance their existence and hoped they were achieving what they saw as a normal life until Jesse experienced an incident which shattered that belief and forced them to realize they had not progressed as far as they thought. Jesse's realization that he had made a terrible mistake was devastating. Jumping to a conclusion, Randy, the controlling personality, in his determination to fend off any challenges to them, felt he must take over to handle the crisis in an effort to protect them...

Childhood obesity in the United States has tripled in a generation. But while debates continue over the content of school lunches and the dangers of fast food, we are just beginning to recognize the full extent of the long-term physical, psychological, and social problems that overweight children will endure throughout their lives. Most dramatically, children today have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, something never before seen in the course of human history. They will face more chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes that will further burden our healthcare system. Here, authors Jacob Warren and K. Bryant Smalley examine the full effects of childhood obesity and offer the provocative message that being overweight in youth is not a disease but the result of poor lifestyle choices. Theirs is a clarion call for parents to have "the talk" with their kids, which medical professionals say is a harder topic to address than sex or drugs. Urgent, timely, and authoritative, Always the Fat Kid delivers a message our society can no longer ignore.
