Title: Kids Will Be All Right – A guide to raising teens in a complex world
Author: FAUSETT MOLLY
We live in an age of anxiety – for both parents and teenagers. The straightforward years of childhood can seem a breeze compared to what teens have thrown at them today. Parents worry about how to help their teenagers deal with sex, porn, gender identity, sexting, slut-shaming, social media, bullying, alcohol and drugs, and about their teenagers’ high levels of anxiety. Teens worry about how to measure up in a world where their social currency is explicitly measured by likes and followers; they worry about their bodies and their looks, sex, cancel culture and their future.
Life is genuinely different for today’s teens and pre-teens than it was even a decade ago, yet New Zealand parents lack access to a comprehensive book with up-to-date, evidence-based and sensible advice on how to help their teens get through the physical, mental and social challenges of adolescence.
The Kids Will Be All Right includes strategies to suggest to your teen to deal with common tricky situations, and covers friendships (and frenemies); bullying; technology use and screen time; drinking, vaping and risk-taking behaviour; self esteem and body image; personal and sexual health; sexual and gender identity; consent; safe relationships; and pornography.
Written by parenting expert Robyn Fausett and with contributions from her daughter, Molly Fausett, The Kids Will Be All Right is an empathetic, insightful guide to navigating the teenage years.
Broken into digestible parts, with numerous examples and anecdotes to help parents know what to do – and say – when, this is an essential guide for today’s parents of adolescents.
