Description

Adolescence has changed. Young people now enter puberty earlier - in many cases at ten or eleven - and leave home later. What's more, modern society expects children to grow up emotionally all too quickly. Most adolescents rebel against their parents to some extent and although parenting adolescents is challenging and exciting, dealing with the issues arising just before and during the teen years can be the hardest. How often have you heard comments such as 'Nothing I do is right!' and 'I'm going crazy!'? Take heart, clear and concise advice is at hand. In Adolescence, experts Michael Carr-Gregg and Erin Shale fully outline the skills, knowledge and strategies parents need to guide their children to adulthood. Sensible, practical, sympathetic techniques are outlined for:--communicating well with your adolescent--setting appropriate, negotiated boundaries--handling problems such as depression, relationships, emerging sexuality, drugs and eating disorders--providing young people with an environment in which they feel safe, valued and listened toAdolescence will provide the 'book of instructions' parents have long thought should come with each child.
