Parenting The New Teen in the Age of Anxiety

Being a parent of Teens today is so hard, they have so much more to deal with than we did as teenagers. Being a Mom of three teenage boys and a soon to be teenage girl, I was excited to get my hands on Parenting The New Teen in the Age of Anxiety. The below was provided to me to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. I am disclosing this in accordance to FTC Guidelines.

Learn about the “New Teen” and how to adjust your parenting approach. Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the internet, and unprecedented academic, social, and familial stressors. Starting as early as eight years old, children are exposed to information, thought, and emotion that they are developmentally unprepared to process. As a result, saving the typical “teen parenting” strategies for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late.

Urgent advice for parents of teens. Dr. John Duffy’s parenting book is a new and necessary guide that addresses this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, offers this book as a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.

Unprecedented psychological suffering among our young and why it is occurring. A shift has taken place in how and when children develop. Because of the exposure they face, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age, often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. Paradoxically, Dr. Duffy recognizes the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age.

Readers of this book will:

Sort through the overwhelming circumstances of today’s teens and better understand the changing landscape of adolescence

Come away with a revised, conscious parenting plan more suited to addressing the current needs of the New Teen

Discover the joy in parenting again by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant

This book is crammed pack full of extremely helpful information for anyone who is raising teens.

One thing that I love about this book is that it’s a guide that explains more about the teens changing brain and how to help our teens deal with any issues they are facing to help prevent anxiety and depression. I love this book as a guide for raising teens and how much more confident I felt after reading it.

If you have kids or know someone who does, whether they are teens yet or not, I would highly recommend this book. It would make a great gift for any parent and I really did find it very helpful and full of great information. I recommend it now to all my friends who have kids.
