The Nonnie SeriesTM seeks to open the door to parent or adult/child communication by addressing complex issues with grace, humor, sensitivity and warmth. In the 11th book in the series, Nonnie Talks about Relationships, Dr. Podgurski explores the wide variety of relationships encountered by children and young people every day. Each person is involved in many types of relationships, starting with family, teachers, and friends, and growing into romantic and sexual partnerships. Nonnie Talks about Relationships looks at numerous types of relationships to guide children and adults to a vibrant discussion of healthy and unhealthy connections. Consultant author Al Vernacchio, a nationally known sexuality educator, provides perspective on body-body, mind-mind, and love-love aspects of relationships. Dr. Mary Jo takes care to describe crushes and explore how a young person defines love, friendships (fake and real), and the need for socialization. Characteristics of unhealthy and healthy relationships are explored. Nonnie helps her main characters, Tamika and Alex, sort through their questions about love, attraction, jealousy and obsession. The children begin to understand that they waiting for a relationship is okay; they are given time to consider how they feel and are validated for their feelings.Adults must respond to childrens needs with honesty, openness, and a true listening ear. Like all the books in The Nonnie SeriesTM, Nonnie Talks about Relationships is meant to be read by a parent/trusted adult and a young person. It is interactive and encourages connection. Proceeds from The Nonnie SeriesTM help Dr. Mary Jo continue the Common Ground Teen Center she began in 2008. Thank you.
