Raising teenagers has always been hard. But it is much harder these days.

Today's teenagers and preteens are growing up in an entirely new world, one that is defined by social media and mobile devices. This has huge implications for our parenting. Understandably, many parents are paralyzed by new problems that didn't exist less than a decade ago, like social media and video game obsession, sexting, and vaping.

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 real-world experiences as the mother of four teenagers. In The New Adolescence, you'll find realistic ways to help teens and preteens find joy, focus, ease, motivation, fulfillment and engagement.

Inside, find practical guidance for:

  • Providing the structure teens need while giving them the autonomy they seek
  • Helping them overcome distractions
  • Teaching them the art of "strategic slacking"
  • Protecting them from anxiety, isolation, and depression
  • Fostering the real-world, face-to-face social connections they desperately need
  • Effective conversations about tough subjects--including sex, drugs, and money

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.
