A parenting wake-up call that could change how you raise your child.
Learn about the "New Teen" and how to adjust your parenting skills. Strategies for parenting teens are now beginning years too late. Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the internet, and unprecedented academic, social, and familial stressors. Starting as early as eight years old, children are exposed to information, thought, and emotion they are unprepared to process.
Unprecedented teenage depression and anxiety. Because of the exposure they face, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age and often are continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties.
Urgent advice for parents of teens. Dr. John Duffy's parenting book is a necessary guide that addresses the hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, provides a guidebook for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.
If you enjoyed parenting books such as The Yes Brain, How to Raise an Adult, The Teenage Brain, Untangled, or The Conscious Parent, Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety should be your next read.
