Parenting the new teen in the age of anxiety A complete guide to your child's stressed, depressed, expanded, amazing adolescence

John Duffy, 1964 August 19-

Book - 2019

"Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and everything you can find on the internet. As a result, as early as eight years old, children are exposed to information, thoughts, and emotions that they are developmentally unprepared to process. Your typical "teen parenting" tactics for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late. Dr. Duffy...offers breakthrough advice for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and, as a result, are dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression. Because of the exposure they deal with, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age and are often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. However, Dr. Duf...fy also expresses the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age."--Page 4 of cover.
