Parenting teenagers of this generation requires a new skill set.
Adolescence is one of the most risky growth and developmental periods for our children. Like never before, we need parents, carers and other adults to have the skills, knowledge and strategies to provide this generation’s young people with the love, stability and routine that they need.

It contains all the thorny issues that confront families with teenagers, such as technology, social media, risky behaviours, school and study problems, and much more.
Full of practical strategies for everyday survival, and crammed with the latest research findings, this indispensable guide will teach you how to communicate effectively with young people, defuse family conflict, set limits, avoid common mistakes, and keep the stress of parenting at bay.
