Raising teenagers has always been hard. But it ismuch harderthese days.

This has huge implications for our parenting.Understandably, many parents are paralyzed by new problems that didn't exist less than a decade ago, like social media and video game obsession, sexting, and vaping.

A highly acclaimed sociologist and coach at UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center and the author ofRaising Happiness,Dr. Christine Carter melds research—including the latest findings in neuroscience, sociology, and social psychology—with her own real-world experiences as the mother of four teenagers. InThe New Adolescence, you'll find realistic ways to help teens and preteens find joy, focus, ease, motivation, fulfillment and engagement.

Inside, find practical guidance for:
