Verilux Rise and Shine Natural Wake-up Light, White
A Better Way to Wake Up
. Most teens need a little extra help learning to get themselves out of bed in the morning. But a jarring alarm puts anyone in a bad mood, and a sleepy teen is likely just to hit the snooze button. Unlike
the sudden jolt of an alarm clock, the natural sunrise simulation of
the Rise and Shine Wake-Up Light won't disrupt the last stages of sleep.
As its soothing, white light progressively brightens, your teen awakens
slowly, providing the body with the stimulus required to transition from sleeping to waking. The result is a feeling of
being rested, revitalized, and ready to start the day. Gradually awakens even the heaviest sleepers.

- Wake to your choice of four natural soundscapes or FM radio stations. Dual alarm with snooze feature
- Drug-free alternative for addressing sleeplessness, fatigue and lethargy

regulate circadian rhythms

Staying Connected To Your Teenager: How To Keep Them Talking To You And How To Hear What They're Really Saying
At last, a book of sage advice that will help frustrated parents
reconnect with their teenager and keep that connection even in today's
often-crazy world.The first step is simple: realizing that inside every
teen resides two very different people-the regressed child and the
emergent adult. The emergent adult is seen at school, on the playing
field, in his first job, and in front of his friends' families.
Unfortunately, his parents usually see only the regressed child-moody
and defiant-and, if they're not on the lookout, they'll miss seeing the
more agreeable, increasingly adult thinker in their midst.With ingenious
strategies for coaxing the more attractive of the two teen
personalities into the home, family psychologist Mike Riera gives new
hope to beleaguered and harried parents. From moving from a "managing"
to a "consulting" role in a teen's life, from working with a teen's
uniquely exasperating sleep rhythms to having real conversations when
only monosyllables have been previously possible, Staying Connected to Your Teenager demonstrates ways to bring out the best in a teen-and, consequently, in an entire family.
