The Parents’ and Educators’ Manual of Teenage “Rebirth”

New Book Release: The Parents’ and Educators’ Manual of Teenage “Rebirth”

Chicago, IL – In his new instructional handbook, “The Parents’ and Educators’ Manual of Teenage ‘Rebirth’: How to Prepare Teens for Victorious Transitions into Adolescence and Beyond” (published by IUniverse), author Bruce G. Bentley helps parents and educators better prepare and guide teens through the three stages of adolescence.

The Manual of Teenage “Rebirth” provides caregivers the principles of adolescent psychology—as a suit of arms—to inform, guide and challenge youth through the three stages of adolescence: early, middle, and late adolescence. With the tools provided in this book, readers will be equipped to help teens develop independence and self-awareness for a strengthened adulthood.

Bentley applies these concepts—along with psychologically pertinent literature—as a pedagogical device to authentic stories of puberty, bullying, aggressive behavior, abuse and suicide. In doing so, he equips readers with knowledge of adolescent psychology, allowing them to present teens with a road map of what to expect and what they can do to help ease the anxieties and fears they encounter in life’s uncertainties.

Kirkus Reviews summed The Manual of Teenage “Rebirth” as: “An insightful book to help parents and educators become smart, sensitive and strong caregivers.” See book review at https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/bruce-g-bentley/the-parents-and-educators-manual-of-teeenage/

Scoop Review Of Books: Excerpt - Ice Bear: The Cultural History Of An Arctic Icon

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
