A Guidebook for Parents Navigating the New Teen Years

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 adolescenceCome away with a revised, conscious parenting plan more suited to addressing the current needs of the New TeenDiscover the joy in parenting again by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant

If you enjoyed parenting books such as The Yes Brain, How to Raise an Adult, The Deepest Well, and The Conscious Parent; then Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety should be next on your list!

This book is an essential tool for you to help navigate parenting in today’s world. As a life coach who often works with teens and young adults, I have not seen a book that is more important. Dr Duffy addresses the issues facing our young people . And there are so many alarming issues . Dr Duffy has advice that will help parents reach their kids and let them know that in a world with so much “ noise” coming at them, they have their backs. They are not alone.

Essential guide for parents of teens Teens face enormous stressors right now, and, on average, they don’t receive a ton of guidance when it comes to developing healthy coping skills. Duffy’s book is essential reading for parents, teachers, and coaches. Duffy shines a spotlight on the unique stressors of the modern teen and provides specific strategies and guidance to help parents help their teens thrive in this complex world.

Great Information I heard John Duffy speak on some of the topics discussed in his book. He provides some great insight and perspective. One being that we can’t lean back into our own teenage experience to understand our kids today. They are being raised with social media, the knowledge of mass shootings, different expectations – it is simply not the same. So, how do we know how to relate? This is one place where we can get educated. I truly enjoyed the lecture, and look forward to reading more in his book.
