What do you do when your previously quiet, loving daughter becomes a restless, rebellious stranger who acts like a responsible adult one day and a rude, selfish brat the next? You stay calm, and consult the experts.

By the time they turn thirteen, adolescent girls look like they're ready for anything – but they're not. Our girls are growing up in a society that is rapidly changing and challenging the skills of even the most experienced parents. A roadmap is needed to guide parents through this new landscape, to ensure we bring up happy, healthy young women.

This indispensable book focuses on the special trials of raising adolescent girls today, including:

  • adolescent development in a new society
  • pressures at school
  • parenting strategies that work
  • parenting in the digital age
  • sex and drugs
  • mental health.
In this fully revised and expanded edition, leading adolescent psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg and researcher Elly Robinson also discuss the single most prolific and influential factor of our times – technology.

If you feel like you’re losing control when it comes to parenting your daughter, it's time to grab back the reins.
