Robinson and Scott provide scientifically reliable and biblically based information about gender fluidity, types of intimacy, online dangers, setting boundaries, and much more.

Teens and territory in post conflict Belfast Book Excerpt:

This book provides a thought provoking and comprehensive account of teenagers’ perceptions and experiences of the physical and symbolic divisions that exist in ‘post conflict’ Belfast. By examining the micro-geographies of young people from segregated areas and drawing attention to the social practices, discourses and networks that directly or indirectly shape how teenagers make sense of and negotiate life in Belfast, the book provides a timely response to the neglect of the experiences of young people growing up in ‘post conflict’ societies. The voices of these young people need to be heard alongside the often partial accounts of young people who live in communities that have benefitted from the peace process. While both are part of the ‘post conflict’ generation how this plays out in the daily practices and experiences of those who continue to reside in segregated communities needs to be articulated and understood before Belfast can truly claim its ‘post-conflict’ status.

Theatre Teens Sex Ed Book Excerpt:

The phrase "child labour" carries negative undertones in today's society. However, only a century ago on the Canadian Prairies, youngsters laboured alongside their parents' working the land, cleaning stovepipes, and chopping wood. By shouldering their share of the chores, these children learned the domestic and manual labour skills needed for life on a Prairie family farm. Rollings-Magnusson uses historic research, photographs, and personal anecdotes to describe the kinds of work performed by children and how each task fit into the family economy. This book is a vital contribution to western Canadian history as well as family and gender studies.
