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.Steinberg, Laurence is the author of 'You+your Adolescent' with ISBN 9780062720023 and ISBN 0062720023.
