Parenting expert Erica Komisar knows the struggles many parents face as their children enter adolescence and has written a new book as a reference for anyone struggling to find answers. According to Ms. Komisar, “Although the first three years are critical to the social emotional development of children and their ability to cope with adversity, the good news is that parents have another opportunity in adolescence, due to right brain development, to have a great impact on their child’s ability to regulate their emotions and build resilience.”
Chicken Little the Sky Isn’t Falling is a comprehensive guide that offers the tools you need as a parent to navigate this tumultuous time of change and create a continuous deep connection with your child. Covering topics including anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavioral issues, addiction to name just a few, it will help readers learn how to help prevent, recognize and address mental health disorders. Ms. Komisar offers compassionate and practical advice to parents on how to help their child with these issues if they occur.

Like the TV show, modern families come in all shapes and sizes. Many children are a product of divorce, are in touch with both their biological and adopted parents, have two moms or two dads (or both), or are being raised by their grandparents. No matter how atypical the face of today's family, the values stay the same: love and support. Moms and dads will find plenty of support in BlogTalkRadio's parenting shows, especially those about time-management topics that fit both stay-at-home and working parents: organizing kids' activity schedules, decluttering, reducing the workweek, managing stress, making quick meals and more. We've also got shows about friendship – you know, your family of choice rather than family of origin. Just remember: everyone's family seems dysfunctional in its own way. And family may irritate you, but more often than not, you can always count on family to pick you up from the airport.
