Teenagers of the 21st Century. Stories of Parents by Fernando Otero

This is a book for parents of teenagers.
I will put forward some issues in order to help parents think and set strategies that will make parenthood easier. The strategies I would like to share with the reader stem from over twenty years of experience as a teacher. My insight is that of a teacher who is permanently in touch with students and parents. I am not a psychologist. I am a teacher who has learned a lot from the people he becomes involved with due to his job. Thanks to these people I have a positive outlook on life and it is my purpose to transmit it to you.
This book is packed with real anecdotes and examples. Names and circumstances have been modified out of respect for those involved. In a fast-moving, complex world there is almost no time to think. We are “moving on” the best way possible, by “winging it” on a daily basis. The real problem arises when we do not know where we are moving on to. And this is the main reason why so many parents and teenagers are bewildered.

About the Author

Nací en la ciudad de Montevideo, Uruguay. En mi casa teníamos distintos animales y me gustaba cuidarlos. Pienso que por eso estudié veterinaria. En cierta oportunidad me invitaron a dar clases de biología y me gustó tanto la docencia que nunca la abandoné. Espero que no se rían, pero actualmente llevo más de veinticinco años siendo profesor. He trabajado como directivo de centros educativos y he desarrollado una intensa actividad como asesor académico en Colombia, Paraguay y Uruguay. Tanto en los talleres de ciencias naturales que realicé con alumnos pequeños, como al dar clases de biología en bachillerato, me fui dando cuenta que el conocimiento y el amor por la naturaleza que nos rodea ayudan a mis alumnos a ser más comprensivos entre ellos facilitando la empatía y a valorar sus diferencias. El trato y la amistad con cientos de estudiantes adolescentes me ayudó a conocer sus inquietudes, sus dudas y sus éxitos.

Becaus even though they love their parents deep down, all that matters right now is figuring things out, trying to deal with school and their social life, and trying to be independent. As a 13 year old, all that matters right now is finding a way to cope with my closest frinds moving and my depression. I guess we tend to withdraw in order to take everything new in, and sometimes our parents get in the way of that, unintentionally.
