The Teen Interpreter: A Guide to the Challenges and Joys of Raising Adolescents
Terri Apter (Author)
Once children hit adolescence, it seems as if overnight "I love you" becomes "leave me alone" and any question from a parent can be dismissed with one word: "fine." But while they may not show it, teenagers benefit from their parents' curiosity, delight and connection. In The Teen Interpreter, psychologist Terri Apter looks inside adolescents' minds-minds that are experiencing powerful new emotions and awareness of the world around them-to show how parents can revitalise their relationship. She illuminates the rapid neurological developments of a teenagers' brain, explains the power of teenage friendships, and explores the positives and pitfalls of social media. With perceptive conversation exercises that synthesise research from more than thirty years in the field, Apter illustrates how teenagers signal their changing needs and identities-and how parents can interpret these signals to see the world through their teenager's eyes. The Teen Interpreter is a generous roadmap for enjoying the most challenging, and rewarding, parenting years.
