Raising a teenager can be challenging, exhausting and, at times, infuriating for parents. In How to Raise a Teen, parenting expert and mother of four young adults Sarah Ockwell-Smith provides advice and guidance for parents, carers, and anybody else who works with teenagers and their families on how to navigate this tricky period.

Using her unique blend of practical parenting advice, neuroscience and psychology, Sarah explores key issues encountered by families during the teenage years, including:

*Common causes of difficult behaviour and conflict, and how to handle them
*How to help your teen to grow into a young adult with good mental health
*Issues at school such as homework, exams, behaviour and other common education related struggles
*How to manage and keep your teen safe when using screens, the internet, alcohol, drugs and vaping
*Relationships including friendships and sibling relationships and how these change during the teen years
*Romantic relationships and how to guide your teen through their first sexual experiences
*Increasing independence, including learning to drive and ‘next steps’ concerning education and work.
*Understanding your own feelings about being a parent to a teen and preparing for the next stage in your life

Parents and young people need more support than ever during this stage of development. How to Raise a Teen will show you how to work through the unique challenges of the teen years with your child, rather than working against them, to support, guide and prepare you both for their next chapter in life
