Parenting at the Speed of Teens is a practical, easy-to-use guide that offers positive, common-sense strategies for dealing with both the everyday issues of parenting teenagers—junk food, the Internet, stress, jobs, friends—and other serious issues teens may encounter—depression, divorce, racism, substance abuse. It illustrates how the daily "little things" such as talking one-on-one, setting boundaries, offering guidance, and modeling positive behavior make a big difference in helping a teenager be successful during these challenging, exciting years of adolescence.

The book is written around common parent issues, questions, and frustrations. Parents will relate to the real-life dilemmas addressed in chapters on home and family, school, friends and peers, work, image, and special issues. Parents will find comfort and reassurance in the assets-based parenting perspective and advice.
