An all-encompassing guide that parents will want for their teens covering
everything from the body and sex to friendship, identity, family and more
Being a Teen is an extension of Fonda's eighteen years of experience in the field of adolescent sexuality and development, and her conviction that young people are still not getting the information they need. Informed by her personal experiences working with young people and experts at The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, which she founded in 1994, and Emory University's Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health, which she founded in 2000, as well as two years of independent research, Being a Teen is a frank, straightforward and thorough guide to identity, friendship, family, the body, sexuality, pregnancy, bullying, and more-everything a young person needs to grow up happy and healthy.
