Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety

By

A Guidebook for Parents Navigating the New Teen Years

Learn about the “New Teen” and what it means for parenting tactics: Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the world wide web. 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” tactics 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 this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, seeks to be a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and, as a result, dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.

Understand the unprecedented psychological suffering in our young people and why it is occurring: A shift has taken place in how and when children develop. Because of the exposure they face, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age, and therefore, are often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. However, Dr. Duffy also expresses the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age.

Readers of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety will:

  • Sort through the overwhelming circumstances of today’s teens and better understand the changing landscape of adolescence
  • Come away with a revised, conscious parenting plan more suited to addressing the current needs of the New Teen
  • Discover the joy in parenting again by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant

If you enjoyed parenting books such as The Yes BrainHow to Raise an AdultThe Deepest Well, and The Conscious Parent, then Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety should be next on your list!

A Bright Clean Mind

By

Tenderheart will be a breezy yet substantial read that lends itself to “dipping back in,” a paperback original with a 5.5” x 8.5” trim size for portability (and gift-ability!) The readership is much the same as well: creative people who want to evolve out of the anxiety and frustration that have characterized so much of their artistic process up to now. Tenderheart will be primarily for “veg-curious” creatives—artists and entrepreneurs who have heard a plant-based diet is better for their health, but haven’t yet made the connections between diet, empathy for non-human animals, and creative output—though it will also appeal to readers who are already moving toward a more compassionate lifestyle, as well as vegans seeking creative inspiration. Now that the older members of Generation Z (no doubt the most politically-engaged generation since the 1960s) are purchasing their own food, plant protein and non-dairy products will eventually dominate the market—and these young vegans (and “vegan-ish”) will reach for books on creativity and culture that reflect their values. As veganism goes truly mainstream, artists and entrepreneurs of older generations who routinely experience anxiety, frustration, and other corrosive emotions will be ever more receptive to Tenderheart’s message, too.
