The New Adolescence : Raising Happy and Successful Teens in an Age of Anxiety and Distraction
by Christine Carter




Overview -

Parents of teenagers need a new playbook--one that addresses the new challenges they face today.

Teens are growing up in an entirely new world, and this has huge implications for our parenting. Understandably, many parents are baffled by problems that didn't exist less than a decade ago, like social media and video game obsession, sexting, and vaping.

The New Adolescence is a realistic and reassuring handbook for parents. It offers road-tested, science-based solutions for raising happy, healthy, and successful teenagers.

Inside, you'll find practical guidance for:

  • Providing the support and structure teens need (while still giving them the autonomy they seek)
  • Influencing and motivating teenagers
  • Helping kids overcome distractions that hinder their learning
  • Protecting them from anxiety, isolation, and depression
  • Fostering the real-world, face-to-face social connections they desperately need
  • Having effective conversations about tough subjects--including sex, drugs, and money

A highly acclaimed sociologist and coach at UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center and the author of Raising Happiness, Dr. Christine Carter melds research--including the latest findings in neuroscience, sociology, and social psychology--with her own (often hilarious) real-world experiences as the mother of four teenagers.
