Abstract:

For many parents the thought of the teen years holds dread: teens are obstinate, inconsiderate, and defiant; they sulk and stress; they are prone to bad decisions and unreasonable behavior. Yet, although the word teenager has become synonymous with trouble, the evidence is clear: the bad rap on adolescents is an undeserved one. Here, child development specialist Lerner dismantles old myths and redefines normal adolescence. His work reveals that in spite of the stereotypes, today's teens are basically good kids who maintain healthy relationships with their families. He presents the personality characteristics, called the 5 Cs, that are proven to fuel positive development: Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character, and Caring. He also prescribes specific ways parents can foster the 5 Cs at home and in their communities. --From publisher description.
