About “The New Teen Age”
“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 carers who are confused and bemused by the conflicting advice on the best way to raise a happy healthy teenager.”
The book features many well known parent experts and health professionals including a few quotes from myself in regards to online safety. It discusses Teens and Sleep, Teen health, Puberty, Teens and social media, and so much more.
In todays podcast Jo Lamble and I focus on Teens and their sleep, their digital device use, tracking our teens via tracking apps and devices…Yes or No? We talk about sleep overs and the tricky conversations around confiscating phones at sleep overs, how to do it kindly and with safety.
I really loved this book. Jo and Ginni’s practical down to earth non alarmist approach is refreshing and non parent blaming. Acknowledging that they have also had their fair share of teen mishaps as have I! We had a great time chatting about teens and our experiences I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
