“Problems with self-esteem and body issues among teens are on the rise. A growing number of girls are suffering from teen anorexia, bulimia and an overall poor body image. Parents can see these struggles with their teens, but many are unsure of how to approach them and help their teen through it,” says Mary Bowman, Publisher of Relate Publishing. “We want to help bridge this communication gap and show parents ways to relate to and understand their teen, while at the same time giving teens a positive message and teaching them to love themselves.”
The media has contributed greatly to these issues and people are starting to take notice. To help increase awareness of the pressure put on women across the world to be beautiful according to society’s standards, Jessica Simpson has even released a new television show, “The Price of Beauty.” The truths of what women (young and old) face every day is undeniable around the globe.
Relate: Self-Esteem & Body Image (teen version) and Relate To Teens: Self-Esteem & Body Image (parent version) were uniquely created as two separate books that can be used together or separately by parents and teens. The teen version helps guide teens through common struggles, establishes a new positive way of thinking and is loaded with statistics and facts that paint a real-world picture for teens. Throughout the book there are workbook exercises for teens to take an active role in improving their self-esteem. The parent version provides insight into what teens are dealing with and helps parents truly understand their teen, while providing a variety of parenting tips and advice that teens will be receptive to. Whether used together or separately, these books are an essential tool for any family looking to tackle teen self-esteem issues.
“Each version of our eBooks were specifically written to help families. Instead of writing a blanket book for parents or teens only, we wanted to create two books that provide parents and teens the opportunity to work together and draw closer to each other. It is important when addressing issues such as these for them to be rooted in relationship, trust and love in order for them to have their greatest impact. Parents should have an active role in raising their children and our books help foster this approach.” Bowman says.
The complete package (teen and parent books) can be purchased for just $24.97 or each book individually for $14.97 at www.relatetoteens.com.
