Early Adolescence: What Parents Need to Know.
Farel, Anita M.
Written for families with adolescent children, this handbook provides information about adolescent development and about the new ways family members relate to each other when children become adolescents. The handbook discusses the physical, social, and intellectual changes that young people experience, describing how parents can respond to some of the changing needs of young adolescents. Finally, the handbook describes additional resources which offer information about adolescent development, raising adolescents, and strengthening family life. A list of signs of emotional disturbance in adolescents and guidelines for communicating and negotiating with and listening to adolescents are included. Information resources for parents are annotated and coded according to three categories of appropriateness: for parents of children of all ages, for parents of young adolescents, and for parents of younger and older adolescents.
