From Publishers Weekly
This updated guide to the teenage years presented by the American Academy of Pediatrics draws on the expertise of numerous pediatricians and covers the physiological, cognitive and emotional development of the adolescent. The book reassuringly walks parents through such important issues as talking about sex and drugs, planning for college, adjusting to middle school and getting along with peers. Important sections address physical activity, sports, and nutritional needs, as well as emotional problems kids may encounter during these turbulent years. Common medical problems confronted by teens, ranging from acne to mono, are also addressed. While pointing out that teens crave time alone as well as time with peers, the authors stress that adolescents also need their parents more than ever. The book speaks to traditional nuclear families as well as to single, divorced, gay and lesbian, and blended families in its all-inclusive approach. The text will serve as a useful tool as parents deal with the "seesawing moods, penchant for challenging authority and lapses in judgment" likely to occur as their teen approaches adulthood and asserts his independence. This comprehensive guide offers straightforward answers to a wide range of questions parents will face during the challenging but rewarding adolescent years.

Well now of course we are in to the talking back, eye rolling years. It took me 6 months to find it and really didn't know if it existed. Finally found it and once again this book is GREAT. It is based on the precise question you may have for a particular problem. It tells you exactly, some time verbatim, on how to handle issues that will and could come up during the teen years. Again, I will be by the book mom.
An added note is I also purchased the "Caring for your child from age 6 thru 12 and found it not useful at all.
Thank You American Academy of Pediatrics for making my job as a mother so much eaiser and releasing me of any doubts about how i was handling things. Especially now when hormones are going crazy in both myself and my son! I LOVE THIS BOOK!
Buy it and get the Birth to 5 yrs old for new mothers as a gift. They will love you for it!
