Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Steinberg, a psychologist and an expert on adolescents, and writer Levine have produced a comprehensive guide to parenting children who are between the ages of 10 and 20. After debunking popular myths--e.g., adolescents are inherently difficult, peer pressure is evil, the nuclear family is in a decline--they offer practical information and suggestions. What saves the text from unneeded dogma is a cautionary note to use one's intuition when in doubt. Age-appropriate chapters discuss physical health, psychological development, and socialization skills, and an introductory section cites the components of a "good parent." Resources are plentiful--everything from resume guidelines to a drug usage chat to the lowdown on acne and sexually transmitted diseases. An extremely readable text makes the contents readily accessible to teens. Recommended.

This review I originally published in 2002 on another website:

I am a 22-year-old college student reading this book for a class on Adolescent Psychology (the teacher uses this book at home as well). This book is simply amazing. It explains a lot of the pressures that occur from pre-teens to young-adults and how the parent should respond to their adolescent, and is an extremely easy read, and very entertaining at times, with practical examples and applications of what is suggested.

The book is broken into sections. The first three chapters are an overview of parenting in a society that is very much different from when we were children. Tips are given on how to communicate with your teenager. One of the most important tools I took from this section is making yourself very clear while listening and evaluating what your teenager feels is important. Steinberg & Levine outline steps that aim to help the parents and the teenager work together to agree on solutions to their disagreements. The authors also discuss family situations that are difficult, such single parenting and divorce.

The next section begins with the preteens, from ages 10 to 13. Puberty is the key issue at this point in the adolescents' lives, so much of the first part of this section offers advice on educating your preteen about puberty. One of the more interesting suggestions made is that not only Mom talk to the daughter about puberty, but also Dad. Same goes for the son. This is aimed at creating an open forum and not making puberty a big secret or something to be ashamed of. This transitions nicely to the next chapter about sexual awakening and the mental and physical difficulties felt by preteens when they start to realize themselves as sexual beings.

Product arrived as advertised. The book is very helpful. You should buy this book long before your child reaches adolescence. The book explains techniques that you will need to use over years prior to your child turning 13. If you do that, it should make solving the issues that arrise in adolesence much easier to solve.

After reading the book we regret that we did not read this before! A very handy book for all parents, especially foreign born, who would not understand the fundamental difference of growing up in the USA, specifically in this modern world of multimedia and social networks!

I bought this book a while back for help understanding my teens and tweens. It seemed more like results of a clinical study than leisurely reading.
