Book Launch: Talk to Me!
Tues 19 November
All are welcome to attend the launch of Talk to Me! Conversations with teens that most parents would love to have by Anita Coghlan. Talk to Me! offers a fly-on-the-wall perspective on the views, opinions, worries and expectations of tweens and teens on subjects such as the pressures that children experience, worries about appearance, sexual activity, friendships, romantic relationships, LGBTQ+ issues, abusive relationships and much more. As well as sharing insights from the author’s work with students, the book also provides useful advice for parents on how to deal with tricky questions and open up what they may feel are awkward but necessary conversations.
Talk to Me! is aimed primarily at parents, but will also be of interest to educators, coaches, RSE facilitators, therapists and anyone who works with children and young adults regularly. The book came about after numerous requests from parents and teachers.
