Ne okudum imdi ben Bilmedi im ne rendim Yazar n ergrn ocuklar oldu unu, bunlar n ge ece ini, sakin olmak gerekti ini bu kadardan ibaret bu kitap leti im yay nlar n n bu psikoloji serisinin ok g zel kitaplar n okudum ama bu o seriyi yak mam This book had some good information about the social and psychological development process of teens. Yeah, good stuff I liked the informal style, and found fresh, new ways to consider my thinking about the dangers of adolescence It s all guiding teens towards independence, and that s a GOOD thing not something to be afraid of Very current info, as it was published just last year Would have liked a section on driving, and also thought cutting should be mentioned, as it s so prevalent among teens But, overall great topics Helps me understand what my teen needs from me.Recommend it. Written from a perspective of a psychologist and a mother, this book provides good insights to teenage years However, I was somewhat put off by author s incessant efforts to make parents feel that they are not alone.

a teen from a parent s perspective not as a sociologist researcher doctor As such, the book is really about reassurances that what parents are going through is normal and to stay calm and carry on despite the drama.The book breaks down as follows 1 Understanding the massive changes occurring in your family 2 Adolescent cognition 3 Understanding parent adolescent conflict 4 Teens striking out on their own 5 Talking to your teen about puberty and sex 6 Understanding your teen s social world 7 Teen dating, romantic relationships 8 Being aware of potential pitfalls 9 Facing the fears and insecurities of being a parent of a teen 10 Embracing the transition as your teen moves out.Villanueva s writing is very friendly and reassuring and this really is a book about guiding but not controlling the transitional teen years A lot of the book is answering the usual questions and frustrations the constant teen parent arguments, teens not wanting to be with parents any , romantic relationships, sex, alcohol, drugs, and easing the transition to college moving out.Although some study results are given, the author eschews the scientific side to focus fully on the emotional The book reads very much like a conversation one could have with a knowledgeable Ph.D Developmental Psychologist but without all the scientific jargon and rhetoric In other words, talking over a long dinner, mom to mom dad, about dealing with teens At no time does the author talk down to either teens or parents and she discusses honestly her own teens and dealing with them and their maturation.So although there isn t as much science in here and I know some parents really want the big picture of what s going on , there is muchpathos in The Angst of Adolescence than I ve read in any other book on the subject At 250 pages, it s a 1 2 hour read with an objective of reassuring and calming parents so they can accept that everything will be all right at the end with the right amount of love and guidance Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher Having been there and done that several times I knew that my daughter in law was totally unprepared for what was coming her way

that several times I knew that my daughter in law was totally unprepared for what was coming her way as my first grandson approached his 13th birthday That little pitter patter upstairs is not the Christmas mice scurrying around, it s the distant sound of a fully loaded freight train heading towards her home.A few weeks prior to his turning 13, I had a grandfather to grandson chat with Brendon

Goodreads a book, The Angst of Adolescence How to Parent Your Teen and Live to Laugh About it by Sara Villanueva.After reading the book I had lots of support for my discussion with my grandson I wanted him to understand that he wasn t the only one about to go through changes I asked him to look through this book so he would be aware that there were two sides to these changes, his and his parents He did this and the next day he asked if he could be the one to give his parents the book and he wanted to write and read to them his reason for giving them the book WOW , indeed there are changes going on with him I would like to share what he wrote For me it was especially heart warming MOM AND DAD, I JUST TURNED 13 AND AM ALL EXCITED ABOUT THIS I HOPE YOU ARE TOO WE ARE BOTH IN FOR A

COMES WITH ALL MY LOVE AND THANKS FOR BEING WONDERFUL, LOVING PARENTS I COULD N T HAVE MADE IT THIS FAR WITHOUT BOTH OF YOU AND MY SISTER, TOO Yes, it is unusual for the birthday boy to give the present but Brendon is an unusual boy I hope this was an eye opening event for his parents thus putting them on notice that he will be changing but also saying let s commit to each other to love and understand Even with positive thinking and patience it will be a challenge to raise above the sarcasm, sleep habits, selfishness, arguing and your always being wrong The book also points out that there are serious things you need to be aware of, such as, substance abuse, hurting people and things including themselves but that there are resources if help is needed.When raising our children we held the line on the rules and expectations Granted this was not always easy We didn t have a wonderful book like, The Angst of to guide us We may have been lucky to do most things right instinctively but we wanted to give our kids help so their kids will turn out to make them as proud as we are of them.Thank you Sara, I hope my children enjoy this gift as much a my grandson did in giving it It s a great read and resource to help parents as their children enter the teen years I highly recommend it .Read Book ♂ The Angst of Adolescence: How to Parent Your Teen and Live to Laugh About It ♼ Being a

years and live to laugh about it Easy read and very conversational I loved how the author relied both on statistics and her own experiences as a mother It made the readpersonal I would recommend this to anyone having trouble with their teen It provides good advice that is derived from real world experience and science So, it s not anything like some parenting magazines where they go on and on about scientific research and blah blah Instead, you re getting it straight from the horse s mouth. This book was very reassuringmaking parents feel less like we re alone in our struggles But it didn t really have anything new or insightful for coping mostly common sense stuff.
