Review

"This book will certainly help you to get in touch with your adolescent. It is a wonderful resource for parents, caregivers and everyone involved in the life of a teen."-- Bill Cosby"This book provides much-needed help for all parents, grandparents, and caregivers navigating the difficult issues that arise during adolescence."-- Dr. Ruth Westheimer"We are all indebted to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for publishing these books. Your Child and Your Adolescent are extremely valuable tools for those on the front line of child care--parents, grandparents, and caregivers."-- Horace Deets, Executive Director, AARP"This follow-up to "Your Child: What Every Parent Needs to Know" could have been titled "Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Teens, " for its large team of editors and contributors have left out no relevant information. Addressed to parents in a forthright yet compassionate tone, the book is divided into four parts-- The Life of an Adolescent; Day-to-Day Problem Behaviors; Serious Problems and Abnormalities; Seeking Help-- and includes excellent appendices on psychiatric medications and medical, psychological, educational and developmental tests. Whether it's a section on "The Teenage Identity" or a sidebar on "Talking About Sex with Your Teen, " readers are presented with well-researched facts and solid advice backed by professional experience. Above all, the authors stress keeping the lines of communciation open, being patient and showing respect for your teen. The fourth part offers a list of symptoms that indicate a need for professional treatment, such as excessive fears and inability to make friends, plus an in-depth discussion of where to getthe proper help. This is an invaluable reference for anyone who has close contact with adolescents."-- "Publishers Weekly"

Format: Hardcover
Your Adolescent is a wonderful book from the trusted professionals at the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. It includes information on normal development, developmental milestones, physical, behavioral and emotional growth.
Another major section has advice on simple day to day problem behaviors that all parents will encounter, including problems at home and in school.
The last section has information on more serious problems, such as behavioral and emotional disorders, substance abuse, eating disorders, and psychotic disorders.
All of the advice and information will help you raise a happy and healthy teenager. The book is well written and easy to read and makes a handy reference book. It also includes an appendix with information on medicines used in psychiatry, a discussion of tests used in diagnosing problems in adolescents and it has a glossary of common medical terms.
Overall, I highly recommended this book to all parents of adolescents.

Well written and easy to understand. Gives me good insights into and appreciation for what my teens are going through. The only reason I rated it 4 star instead of 5 is that this was written 15 years ago -- before the era of smart phones and texting, snapchat, and instagram, etc. The context for the book was, for example, girls monopolizing the family (landline) telephone to socialize with friends. Of course that has all changed. (And many families don't have landlines anymore!) So the book is a little out of date where social media and technology is concerned. The principles still apply.

We were dealing with a near-teen child who rarely talks to us and after reading this book and it's counterpart, we have gotten her to open up and talk to us constantly. No parent should be without this book.
