Parenting. Gender. Leadership. We all follow the script we have been given. The story we have been told and tell ourselves. We carry these perceptions with us, into our partnerships, parenting and places of work. There’s more to life than that. Let’s empower women, explore healthy masculinity, and embrace authenticity, because the story is ours to rewrite. Join us for another inspiring weekend you won’t want to miss, featuring Dr. John Duffy, author of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety.
Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety
Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the internet, and 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.
Dr. John Duffy’s parenting book is a new and necessary guide that addresses this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, offers this book as a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.
