Review:

"This book will certainly help you to get in touch with your adolescent. It is a wonderful resource for parents, caregivers and everyone involved in the life of a teen."-- Bill Cosby"This book provides much-needed help for all parents, grandparents, and caregivers navigating the difficult issues that arise during adolescence."-- Dr. Ruth Westheimer"We are all indebted to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for publishing these books. Your Child and Your Adolescent are extremely valuable tools for those on the front line of child care--parents, grandparents, and caregivers."-- Horace Deets, Executive Director, AARP"This follow-up to "Your Child: What Every Parent Needs to Know" could have been titled "Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Teens, " for its large team of editors and contributors have left out no relevant information. Addressed to parents in a forthright yet compassionate tone, the book is divided into four parts-- The Life of an Adolescent; Day-to-Day Problem Behaviors; Serious Problems and Abnormalities; Seeking Help-- and includes excellent appendices on psychiatric medications and medical, psychological, educational and developmental tests. Whether it's a section on "The Teenage Identity" or a sidebar on "Talking About Sex with Your Teen, " readers are presented with well-researched facts and solid advice backed by professional experience. Above all, the authors stress keeping the lines of communciation open, being patient and showing respect for your teen. The fourth part offers a list of symptoms that indicate a need for professional treatment, such as excessive fears and inability to make friends, plus an in-depth discussion of where to getthe proper help. This is an invaluable reference for anyone who has close contact with adolescents."-- "Publishers Weekly"
