A clinical psychologist offers an accessible guide to the “New Teen” and how parents can adjust to raising them in this emotionally challenging world.

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 that they are developmentally unprepared to process. As a result, saving the typical “teen parenting” strategies for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late.

With this parenting book, Dr. John Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, offers a necessary guide that addresses this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. This is a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression. Because of the unprecedented exposure they face, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age, often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. Paradoxically, Dr. Duffy recognizes the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age.

Readers of this book will:·       Sort through the overwhelming circumstances of today’s teens and better understand the changing landscape of adolescence
·       Come away with a revised parenting plan more suited to addressing the current needs of the New Teen
·       Discover the joy in parenting again by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant

Perfect for readers of parenting books like The Yes Brain, How to Raise an Adult, The Deepest Well, and The Conscious Parent. Read more
