Thirteen-year-old schoolboy, Dirk Lloyd, has a dark secret - in fact he is a dark secret. Dirk - according to his own account - is the earthly incarnation of a Dark Lord, supreme ruler of the Darklands and leader of great armies of orcs and warriors, intent on destruction and bloody devastation. Following a colossal final battle between the forces of good and evil, the Dark Lord was defeated and hurled by his arch-foe's spells into the Pit of Uttermost Despair. At the bottom of the Pit lies...a supermarket car park in the municipal town of Whiteshields, somewhere in modern day England. And when he is found, and tries to explain that he is the Dark Lord, people think he means Dirk Lloyd. The fact that he's trapped in the puny body of a schoolboy doesn't help. And so begins Dirk's battle to recover his dignity, his power, and his lands... Along the way he faces the inconvenience of being fostered by a do-gooding family, the Purejoies; the torture of endless hours of drudgery at the Whiteshields Brainwashing Centre (aka school); a vengeful Headmaster; two interfering Psychotic Persecutors (psychotherapists); and constant laughter and disrespect when he attempts to marshall his lackeys and lickspittles (friends) to do what he wants them to. Dirk makes friends with the son of his foster family, Christopher, and the local Goth Girl, Sooz, and together they attempt to cast a spell that will transport Dirk back to his homeland. Inevitably, not everything goes to plan... But that's for book 2. Roald Dahl Prize winner, 2012.

To find out what teenagers' lives are like, two psychologists gave beepers to seventy-five adolescents, signaled them at random, and asked them to record their thoughts and feelings as they sat in classrooms, socialized with friends, and ate dinner with their families. The result is a unique and detailed portrait of the day-to-day world of the average American teenager that offers valuable new insights for parents, psychologists, and educators.

Confessions of a Bad Mother the Teenage Years

When you're pregnant you think: 'I'm having a baby', not a person who will eventually catch trains by themselves, share a fridge with ten strangers, go to a festival in Croatia without succumbing to a drug overdose, and one day, bring you a gin and tonic when your mother is dying. We imagine the teenage years as a sort of domestic meteor strike, when our dear, sweet child, hitherto so trusting and mild, is suddenly replaced by a sarcastic know-all who isn't interested in the wisdom we have to pass on. But with great honesty and refreshingly bracing wit, Stephanie Calman shows that adolescence in fact begins much earlier, around the age of seven. And having nurtured them through every stage of development, from walking to school by themselves to their first all-night party, you find yourself alone - bereaved even - as they skip off to university without a second glance. Candid, touching and very, very funny, Confessions of a Bad Mother: The Teenage Years offers hope to despairing and exhausted parents everywhere. Read it and discover that your teenager is not the enemy after all.

The problems which the individual has to deal with in adolescence are qualitatively different from those of childhood; they are related in particular to the adolescent's reaction/responses to the physical development of his/her sexual body, and the changing relationship to the parents and to the world in which he/she lives. We have to take into account the revival of infantile conflicts and the newly emerging sexual and aggressive urges and experiences, both of which have to be integrated by the adolescent so that a new equilibrium can be created. The adolescent finds himself in the very difficult position of having to make all these readjustments whilst he has to deal with the subsequent conflicts and anxieties. The earlier passionate mixture of love and hatred that characterizes the attachment and dependency on the parents must now be renounced until the adolescent reaches a point at which it is possible for him to confirm his own identity and find new love relationships. These must neither be based too much on repetition of previous early attachments, nor be entirely and exaggeratedly opposed to them. It goes without saying that none of this can be achieved without much upheaval and experimenting. The step from adolescence to adulthood is complex and involves not only the individual's emotional experience, but also the continuous input, reactions from the world in which he/she lives. It is these interactions that are described and discussed in this book.

Repackaged and updated. Understanding the six different phases of the teenage years. According to leading Australian parent educators Ken and Elizabeth Mellor, parents need to stay very involved, not 'step back', as their children become teenagers-because teenagers in the early to middle teen years actually want to be controlled, despite what they might say! As well as parental involvement, teenagers need attention to safety, clear expectations and limits, and for their parents to understand what is happening. these are the cornerstones of the approach the Mellors recommend. this updated edition of their successful guide includes new information on significant issues for parents: cyber bullying, pornography, teen suicide, social media and mentoring. the core of their book is an analysis of the six distinct stages of the teenage years. Parents find that knowing which stage their child is in, and what their child needs at that particular stage, helps them greatly. the six stages are: 1. the baby (thirteen-year-olds) 2. the dissenter (fourteen-year-olds) 3. the fledgling (fifteen-year-olds) 4. the sweet and sour (sixteen-year-olds) 5. the romantic (seventeen-year-olds) 6. the world leader (eighteen- to twenty-one-year-olds) Among the book's other key features are: Each stage requires specific responses from parents that rarely work for the other stages; teenagers need lots of time and attention in the early to middle years, particularly if they 'slip back' to more infantile behaviour; Parents need to be aware of the more grown-up aspects of their teenagers' development so they can encourage this, even in the face of their childrens' emotional immaturity; Parents and teachers need to read any signs of trouble in a teenager correctly-and the Mellors include a chart, the Rainbow Alert Scale, to help with this important task.

'You don't understand ' This book is for all those for whom this is an ominously familiar sound, along with the plaintive cries of 'Just leave me alone ' or 'It's not fair, everyone else does it ' - the wails and whines usually accompanied by slamming doors, snarls and sulks. It is full of invaluable insights and advice for parents and long-suffering siblings. It is the ultimate survival guide to the teenage years - a time of life that most adults have selectively erased from their minds... Chapters deal with understanding what is happening to the teenage child (the wild hormones and intense emotions of puberty), how to cope with the delicate issues of sex and relationships, and the danger zones of drug and alcohol abuse. Comprehensive and reassuring, 13 to 19 deals with all the problems of teenage life. The book offers guidance on how to stay in control, how to cope with the ups and downs of the teenage years, and what to do when things get out of hand. Armed with this book's sound advice - validated by the author's own experiences as a mother of six - parents will know when to say 'No ' and, just as important, when finally to let go. More than this, though, the book reveals how t

The popular RTÉ series Teens in the Wild showed David Coleman doing what he does best: taking families who were locked in conflict and turning things around. It wasn't always easy, but the results were dramatic, moving and inspiring. The key to a successful journey through adolescence centres on the recognition that parenting styles have to develop and progress through this period. In Parenting is Child's Play: The Teenage Years, David Coleman explains why adolescence gets such a bad press and, reassuringly, why parents don't have to dread it. Even if affection, respect and cooperation seem to be replaced by contempt, rejection and recalcitrance, there is an explanation for these changes and they don't have to cause irreparable damage. Parenting is Child's Play: The Teenage Years provides key information about what is going on with your child, and is brimming with helpful advice and down-to-earth strategies. For parents supporting their children on one of the most important journeys they'll ever undertake - the journey from childhood to adulthood - it is essential reading.
