Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides much-needed help for all parents, grandparents, and caregivers navigating the difficult issues that arise during adolescence." -- -- Dr. Ruth Westheimer

About the Author

David Pruitt, M.D., editor-in-chief, is past president of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, with over 6,600 members, is the leading national association of physicians dedicated to the healthy mental development of children and adolescents.


More About the Author

Having taught myself to read at the tender age of three, I was apparently destined to be a wordsmith--and for some 30 years I have been happily plying my craft as a writer and a book editor. On the writing side, I have authored YA biographies ranging from historical legends to pop culture icons as well as a number of publications about creating wildlife habitat and gardens that speak to my affinity for nature. I was also a contributing writer to "Your Child" and "Your Adolescent" for the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, published by Harper Collins and "The Book of Women's Health" for the National Women's Health Resource Center (Morrow). As an editor, I've worked with major publishing houses on virtually every genre imaginable, from romances and Edgar Award-winning mysteries to cookbooks and guidebooks. When not reading pretty much anything I can get my hands on--especially of the history and arts variety--I can be found tending my gardens, hiking the woods with my lovable mutt (who co-exists with my two lovable cats far better than they co-exist with one another), and photographing the world around the upstate New York home that I share with my significant other.

18 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Vincent Iannelli, MD on February 5, 2000
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.

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.
