Laurence Steinberg is a professor of psychology at Temple University and a nationally recognized expert on adolescent psychology.From Library Journal:
Steinberg, a psychologist and an expert on adolescents, and writer Levine have produced a comprehensive guide to parenting children who are between the ages of 10 and 20. After debunking popular myths--e.g., adolescents are inherently difficult, peer pressure is evil, the nuclear family is in a decline--they offer practical information and suggestions. What saves the text from unneeded dogma is a cautionary note to use one's intuition when in doubt. Age-appropriate chapters discuss physical health, psychological development, and socialization skills, and an introductory section cites the components of a "good parent." Resources are plentiful--everything from resume guidelines to a drug usage chat to the lowdown on acne and sexually transmitted diseases. An extremely readable text makes the contents readily accessible to teens. Recommended.
