Learn about the “New Teen” in his latest book, Parenting in the New Age of Anxiety, and what it means for your parenting approach: Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the Internet, along with unprecedented academic, social, and familial stressors. Starting as early as eight-years-old, children are exposed to information, thought, and emotion that they are developmentally unprepared to process. As a result, saving the typical “teen parenting” strategies for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late.
Urgent advice for parents of teens: Dr. John Duffy’s parenting book is a new and necessary guide because it addresses everything we need to know about our kids’ rapidly changing world, and provides manageable solutions for parents, issue-by-issue. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, wrote this book as a guide for parents raising children who are growing up too quickly and, as a result, dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.
