Finally, parenting advice that talks both to the physical and the psychological issues at play in the teenage years, specifically designed for parents, step-parents and careers who are confused and bemused by the conflicting advice on the best way to raise a happy, healthy teenager.

Between them, Dr Ginni Mansberg and clinical psychologist Jo Lamble have many years' experience, both as clinicians and as parents, so they know first-hand what concerns parents today and they get how challenging it can be to raise adolescents. They empathise with parents, understand their struggles and want to equip them with solid information and sound strategies.

In addition to the parent-child tensions that result from peer pressure online and in the school yard, there are tricky questions around eating well, sleeping well, exercise, screen time, body image, growing independence, hormones, periods, sexual development, sex, sexuality, siblings, skin, clothes, social life, academic pressure, communication skills. Each topic has case studies, symptom checklists where appropriate, interviews with specialists, strategies, with a handy summary at the end of each chapter.
