Nationally recognized adolescence expert Steinberg revises his 1997 title to include e-issues, extending the end of adolescence from age 20 to 25. The good news is "the horror stories you have heard about adolescence are false," which has been confirmed in much research of late and over time. Dream children do not become rogue teens overnight; parents are not helpless in the face of the peer group; and the "decline of the family" has not doomed our children to despise authority figures. Steinberg reiterates what successful parenting looks like and gives both general guidelines and concrete suggestions, highlighting mistakes parents often make. Adolescence books abound, yet Steinberg should be one of the first go-to titles for parents. Essential.
