The Family Action Network presents Dr. John Duffy in conversation with Chicago Tribune columnist Heidi Stevens, as they discuss his latest bestselling book, Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety. This event is free and open to the public. The Book Stall will be on hand with books and Dr. Duffyt will be happy to sign them.
About the Book:
No parent experienced their teen years the way children do today; children as young as eight-years-old are prematurely self-conscious, over-stressed, and overwhelmed. Dr. John Duffy, the regular parenting and relationship expert on Steve Harvey, is here to provide strategies and tips for actively learning the world of our children, so that when they need us, we can be there armed with understanding.
"Today's parents grew up in a world that looks and feels nothing like the one our kids inhabit. Dr. Duffy's book is like a travel guide to help us navigate this foreign land we've never visited and know nothing about, but desperately want to help our kids understand and thrive in, and maybe even love. This is a must-read I will return to often." --Heidi Stevens, Chicago Tribune
"John Duffy's years of clinical experience and deep empathy for teens and their families comes through on every page. This comprehensive book offers context for the anxiety and depression some adolescents experience and helps parents find ways to understand, validate, and support their teen through the challenging years of coming of age. The many examples for Duffy's clinical work will resonate with parents who are seeking to understand their teen's day to day experiences." --Devorah Heitner, PhD, author of the New York Times bestselling book Screenwise
