Editorial Reviews


"I like how it is organized into manageable learning sections.  I like the added exercises to help you really understand the topics.  Very well presented." ―Cassandra's Reviews

"I see the benefits of Dr John Duffy's work and for those who are raising teens or about to raise teens this could relieve some of the stress you feel in connection to that process." ―Nerdy Girl Express

--This text refers to the paperback edition.


“If you are a parent―or a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, or have children in your life in any significant way and that you love―this book is required reading. Dr. John Duffy shows us how being an adolescent in the 21st century brings an entirely unique set of pressures that our generations never knew. Fortunately, Dr. Duffy gives us clear, concrete, wise advice for how we *all* can be the best adults and parents for our children, and make the difference we seek to be in their lives.” ―Michael Hainey, author of New York Times bestseller After Visiting Friends

“It’s no big secret that modern teens face unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety. Depression, anxiety disorders, and suicidal ideation hover in the backdrop of their lives. What parents of modern teens need is a roadmap to learn how to help teens thrive (instead of simply survive), and John Duffy is here to help. In his signature empathic and straightforward tone, Duffy shines a spotlight on the many contributing factors to the rise in anxiety and depression among our teens and provides a clear plan to help parents understand their teens and give them the support they need. Duffy’s focus is right where it should be―on the importance of building the parent-teen connection. Highly recommended for parents, educators, coaches, and all other people who work with teens.” ―Katie Hurley, LCSW, author of The Depression Workbook for Teens and No More Mean Girls 

“Any parent of any child should read this book and learn from Dr. John Duffy.” ―H. Prather, author of The Mindful Parent

“Today’s parents grew up in a world that looks and feels nothing like the one our kids inhabit. Dr. Duffy’s book is like a travel guide to help us navigate this foreign land we’ve never visited and know nothing about, but desperately want to help our kids understand and thrive in, and maybe even love. This is a must-read I will return to often.” ―Heidi Stevens, Chicago Tribune

“This brilliant book focuses on all-the-things―the anxiety, depression, relationships, vaping, sex, grades―it’s really comprehensive and honest and we are thrilled to have it as a resource for our listeners. The most important part of John’s work/writing is that he’s really positive and optimistic about teens―he loves working with them and he knows they are smart, caring, deep, and empathic. He respects their viewpoints and he supports parents in developing a more respectful and connected relationship with their kids. He’s been a speaker at all four of our conferences, and we just love him dearly. AND he is such a good dad and such a good man out in the real world. He walks the walk and Todd and I are so proud to have him as a friend.” ―Cathy Cassini Adams, author of The Self-Aware Parent and co-host of Zen Parenting Radio

“John is the real deal. He works with parents and kids in his practice every day. He knows what kids are dealing with, what their struggles are, where their strengths lie, what they know, and what they need. Every parent needs to read this book. John gives us a deep, clear understanding of our childrens’ world, and a solid guide and tools to help them navigate it all and thrive.” ―Giuliana and Bill Rancic

“John Duffy’s years of clinical experience and deep empathy for teens and their families comes through on every page. This comprehensive book offers context for the anxiety and depression some adolescents experience and helps parents find ways to understand, validate, and support their teen through the challenging years of coming of age. The many examples for Duffy’s clinical work will resonate with parents who are seeking to understand their teen’s day to day experiences.” ―Devorah Heitner, PhD, author of the New York Times bestselling book Screenwise

“My wonderful friend, Dr. John Duffy, works with teens all over the Chicago-area and has a true understanding of how parents can better relate to their children within the changing world that we all face. His insights and experience can not only help our teens survive but also thrive. Anxiety and depression are unfortunately on the rise in way too many of our teens. Any ideas, assistance, tools and understanding that parents can gain are priceless. I highly recommend this book, and I highly recommend this man who offers a voice of knowledge, compassion and warmth.” ―Annie Burnside, author of Soul-to-Soul Parenting 

“Dr. Duffy's latest book gives parents insight and practical advice they won't find anywhere else for restoring calm to the frenzied pace of growing up today. Anxiety, stress, and depression are commonplace in teenager's lives now, but they don't have to be. You'll find comfort and wisdom in these pages. A must-read for every parent.”  ―Michelle Icard, author Middle School Makeover
