Abstract
Élever un enfant dans deux langues demande un effort soutenu sur plusieurs années. Le bilinguisme ne va pas de soi, que la seconde langue soit celle d'un des parents, qu'elle soit celle de la cellule familiale dans un pays étranger ou, tout simplement, un projet d'apprentissage pour l'enfant d'une famille monolingue. Combattre les idées reçues, trouver les moyens de lutter contre la disparition de la langue « faible », se construire une identité à partir de deux langues et de deux cultures, tels sont les défis à relever par les enfants bilingues et leurs parents.

Abstract
Troubles de l'attention, retards de langage, absence de sociabilité, hyperactivité : sortez votre enfant de son addiction aux écrans ! Votre enfant a du mal à se concentrer et paraît en permanence dans sa bulle ? Rien ne semble l'intéresser en dehors de sa tablette ou de votre smartphone, il s'énerve facilement et peut se montrer violent ? Et si le problème venait d'une surexposition aux écrans ? Il en faut peu pour rendre son enfant accro aux écrans : une télévision allumée en permanence, des dessins animés pour lui faire avaler ses repas, des jeux sur applications pour « stimuler » son éveil ou obtenir un moment de paix, l'exemple de ses parents rivés sur leur smartphone ou leurs jeux vidéo etc. Les centres médicaux-psychologiques sont aujourd'hui assaillis d enfants addicts aux écrans dès le berceau, souffrant de troubles massifs de l'attention, et même de symptômes graves évoquant l autisme: retards de langage, grande agitation, défaut de sociabilité, comportements parfois violents. À travers de nombreux cas de patients et en expliquant les processus qui mènent aux différents symptômes, Sabine Duflo, psychologue, pousse un cri d'alerte : les écrans sont des retardateurs puissants de développement. Elle expose sa fameuse méthode des « 4 Pas » qui permet à l enfant de s'approprier l'écran sans en devenir captif, méthode qui connaît un vif succès auprès des professionnels de l enfance.

Abstract
Thinksheets for Tweens and Teens focuses on the social issues and challenges faced by pre-adolescents and adolescents and introduces social concepts and strategies that can help individuals navigate these tricky years. Social rules and expectations change with age; thinking and behavior that was appropriate in elementary school can quickly become inappropriate and unexpected as students move into middle and high school. We developed these Thinksheets to help educators, therapists, and parents encourage more mature social thinking and related shifts in their students? social skills. The Thinksheets explore a wide range of topics, starting with the basic Social Thinking understanding of the Four Steps of Communication, to exploring the hidden rules of the classroom and when is it okay to correct others. Chapters include What Is Social Communication?, Problem Solving, Lessons on Emotions, Different Perspectives, Being Bossy and Jerky, Lessons on Friendships, The Social Fake and Other Tricks, and Participating in Groups. There are more than 160 Thinksheets across these 8 sections, and all are included on the Mac/PC friendly CD that comes with the book. Material in this book may be used by older students who are less mature or who learn this type of information more slowly.

Language is the primary tool by which we communicate. Kegan and Lahey argue, though, that the words we use do more than represent feelings and attitudes. The very choice itself of one word or expression over another can determine feelings and attitudes and--most importantly--actions. In order to demonstrate their complex concept of the role of language in transformational learning, they offer this book, in part, as an instruction manual for collaborative exercises in self-assessment. They identify seven languages that one should adopt to overcome both internal and organization resistance to change.
