O.T. Recommendation of New Novel for Teens

I was talking to a mother about the interests that the modern teenager has regarding books they like to read. So many of the themes of books read by teens today are not teaching good values or good social skills. There is much that is needed to be gained regarding relationships, social interaction, effective communication, caring about another, doing acts of kindness and more. 

Did you know that recent studies by psychologists and neurobioligists demonstrates that the increase of social networking, text messaging etc is causing our brains to be re-wired in a negative way. It is affecting our social interaction and specifically our communcation skills.

The book "Relationships" by R.A. Kahn caters to all these needs. As a retired high school teacher recently commented: 

"I have read the book through three times. I enjoyed the story; it is really nice to have a sensible book which is not "preachy" and yet gets over many valuable messages to the young! A recommended read."
Elizabeth H; A retired high school teacher

As an Occupational Therapist, I highly recommend this book. It is perfect for teachers to purchase and read with their class. Also a perfect book for guidance counsellors or Occupational Therapists working with teenagers. It lends itself to discussion within a class or group of important values and Life Skills, while being an enjoyable book filled with a range of daily events and relationships.

The book is available on CreateSpace, Amazon, certain stores and directly from the author.
