Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety
Listen to a sample
What to expect
Learn about the “New Teen” and what it means for parenting tactics: Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the world-wide web. 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” tactics for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late. Learn about the newest advice for parents of teens: Dr. John Duffy’s parenting book is a new and necessary guide because it addresses this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, seeks to be a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and, as a result, dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression. Learn about the unprecedented psychological suffering in our young people 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, and, therefore, are often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. However, Dr. Duffy also expresses the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age.
