The emigration debate is as old as our democracy itself. When the “new South Africa” dawned in 1994, many people left the country out of fear for what majority rule would hold. More still left in the years that followed to seek a better life elsewhere, and communities of expats can be found all over the world in places such as Canada, England and Australia.

Today, 25 years after the dawn of democracy, as optimism about the country’s future ebbs and flows, new impetus has been given to the emigration debate. This time around, it is not only being discussed in reactionary circles, but around dinner tables of all creeds as many people leave for better education, job opportunities and safety.

With the reality of nine wasted years tugging at our wallets and future prospects, and the allure of a global economy pulling strong, more and more people are asking, “Should I go?”

In Should we go? more than 20 of South Africa’s foremost thought leaders such as Jonathan Jansen, Mandy Wiener, Phumzile van Damme and Ferial Haffajee grapple with this question. It is an attempt to find some answers that will give insight to and challenge every person who is thinking of leaving, has already left, or has decided to stay so that they may thrive as South Africans wherever they are.


  • This is the first book to tackle this issue head-on.
  • Informed influencers, including Jonathan Jansen, Mandy Wiener, Phumzile van Damme and Ferial Haffajee, to name a few, discuss one of the most difficult questions South Africans grapple with: Should we go?
  • This book give insight to South Africans who have already left, those who plan to emigrate and those who have chosen to stay.
  • The influencers’ opinions are articulated positively.

To raise a typical toddler is no joke. So what do you do when your child happens to be ‘different’? What if he’s hyperactive and can’t pay attention? What if you suspect that she might be autistic? What can be done about low muscle tone and poor pencil grip? What if his language development is not on par, or he lisps or stutters? And what if she doesn’t have learning difficulties, but suffers from anxiety?

In Help! My Child is Atypical a team of experts answers these and many other questions that parents struggle with daily. Is therapy really essential or is it just a money-making scheme? And where do you begin when you suspect something’s amiss?

In 30 gripping case studies, parents and therapists relate their true stories of determination and hope.    Psychologists, speech therapists, audiologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, play therapists and other medical practitioners share their knowledge, experience, and secrets.

Help! My Child is Atypical is a practical guide that equips you with the tools needed to make you and your child a champion team!


  • The book has been compiled by a team of experts and therapists.
  • It’s an easy, accessible guide for parents to identify problems early on.
  • It contains case studies that help to identify problems more easily.
  • There aren’t many books in Afrikaans focusing on this subject matter.
  • A practical guide with useful tips.


Christien Neser is a writer and a speech therapist who has been in practice for nearly four decades. She collaborated with a group of expert colleagues to help answer parents’ most concerning questions. However, the stories of determination and hope by parents and their super special kids put the cherry on top. Champion teams!
