The answer can be found in a new book, The Inside Story on Teen Girls (American Psychological Association/APA LifeTools; May 2002; $12.95 paperback), which reveals the results of an American Psychological Association Task Force Survey on Adolescent Girls. Uniquely designed as a flip book, with one cover side for parents and the other side for teens, this is the perfect, one-stop resource for moms, dads and their teenage daughters to learn more about themselves and each other.
Written by two leading experts in the field, Karen Zager, Ph.D., and Alice Rubenstein, Ed.D., the book offers answers to the most common questions out of the 6,000 compiled in the survey. Regardless of racial, ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds, Zager and Rubenstein found that most parents and their teens had very similar problems and concerns. While they acknowledge that there is no simple "one-size-fits-all" answer to any of the questions, they hope that the multiple answers they provide will help parents and teens make the best choices for their situations. The end of each chapter provides "Hot Tips" for bridging the parent-teen gap.
Combining their own expertise with that of a panel of almost 50 other top psychologists, the authors give practical information and advice on issues, such as:
The Inside Story on Teen Girls will help guide parents through the complex maze of parenting an adolescent girl, and likewise help teen girls navigate their own turbulent lives. I hope you will feature this innovative and informative book in your May issue and will call you soon to discuss.
