9780062734617: You and Your Adolescent Revised Edition: Parent's Guide for Ages 10-20, A

With the growing problems of teenage pregnancy, AIDS and violence that adolescents have to face, this updated edition of You and Your Adolescent is an important book for parents.

Laurence Steinberg and Ann Levine reassure and advise parents, helping them understand family communication, the physical and emotional changes of puberty, intellectual and moral growth, peer pressure, sex, drugs, cigarettes, alcohol and other challenges this period brings. They also provide special advice for single parents, working parents and stepparents. Divided into three periods: 10 to 13, 14 to 17 and 18 to 20, You and Your Adolescent is both easy to read and follow.

By taking the mystery out of adolescence, the authors aid parents in making their teenagers development a period of satisfying growth toward adulthood.

About the Author:

Laurence Steinberg is a professor of psychology at Temple University and a nationally recognized expert on adolescent psychology.

From Library Journal:

Steinberg, a psychologist and an expert on adolescents, and writer Levine have produced a comprehensive guide to parenting children who are between the ages of 10 and 20. After debunking popular myths--e.g., adolescents are inherently difficult, peer pressure is evil, the nuclear family is in a decline--they offer practical information and suggestions. What saves the text from unneeded dogma is a cautionary note to use one's intuition when in doubt. Age-appropriate chapters discuss physical health, psychological development, and socialization skills, and an introductory section cites the components of a "good parent." Resources are plentiful--everything from resume guidelines to a drug usage chat to the lowdown on acne and sexually transmitted diseases. An extremely readable text makes the contents readily accessible to teens. Recommended.
