A very original format to speak directly to families and talk to them about subjects that concern adolescents: their relationships with their parents, friends, school, their romantic relationships, sex, their education, their questions about the meaning of life, fear of the future…
A narrative that never preaches, but explains in an entertaining and attractive way that doesn’t detract from the seriousness of the information provided.
The objective: to reassure, to explain to parents and adolescents the functioning of personalities, their brains, how to establish one’s position in a group, to respond to all the questions an adolescent might ask about him or herself, his or her behavior, and to give adolescents the tools and techniques that may help them gain self-confidence, take control, etc. Two figures: the psychiatrist who provides explanations through stories that he tells to the adolescent in front of him.
Very accessible content, a framework cleverly put into images created by a great illustrator. Accessible and funny!
