Abstract:

Raising a teenager was never supposed to be like this. In today' world, every thirteen-year-old child lives with issues like sex, violence, drugs, alcohol, divorced parents, and easy access to guns. Yet in this new and sometimes terrifying 21st century, many parents struggle in vain to raise teens with 30-year-old rules that no longer work. When they fail, they often withdraw from their kids, stunned by feelings of impotence and helplessness. [In this book, the author] gives you the insight, the hope, and the help you need to safely steer your teenage children through the often stormy waters of adolescence. First, [he] takes you on an eye-popping journey into the new and radically different world of today's teenagers'a place filled with pitfalls and perils. Then, he gives you a guided tour inside your teenager's mind, explaining why teens act the way they do and showing you how cutting-edge science explains the sometimes irrational, bizarre, and crazy behavior teenagers are famous for. Finally, [the author] updates the rulebook. He shows you that you are the most important influence in your teenager's life, and he gives you the training and skills you need to transform your 21st century teen into a strong, confident, productive adult.-Dust jacket.
