There is a crisis emerging in the lives of 21st century young people, their parents, teachers and peers. The complex experiences of adolescents with permanent access to technology, growing psychological pressures, increasing competition for grades and eventually jobs mean this generation of teenagers are beset by a range of problems never encountered by their predecessors. In this book, former Head Master of Eton and bestselling author Tony Little and child and adolescent psychiatrist Herb Etkin tackle the problems faced by adolescents and set out how to combat them. Adolescence: How to Survive It covers a range of subjects from what adolescence actually is, to challenges such as drug use and discipline, character and wellbeing. The book sets adolescence in context before Little and Etkin engage in a series of question-and-answer dialogues to tackle key issues which are relevant and useful to anyone working or living with adolescents, and the teenagers themselves. Like Tony Little's bestselling An Intelligent Person's Guide to Education ('Little's 10 top tips for dealing with adolescents are alone worth the cover price' Sunday Times) this is a highly readable and indispensable book for parents, teachers and young people alike.

Yes You Can Survive Adolescence and Beyond was inspired by Jeffrey Harris' childhood and life long experience. Growing up without knowing his biological father, reared in a financially challenged household, Mr. Harris makes no excuses of what he didn't have, but talks about how he achieved what he does have. He learned the values of hardwork at an early age. Self-determination never left him although hard times challenged him. Reflecting on how he walked around with cardboard stuffed at the bottom of his shoes to replace their worn soles, drug dealing and use, and gang involvement, Mr. Harris knows that there is a much better life for everyone despite their challenges. The book captures such experiences of everyday people and prominent people we all know. His experience in the United States Army awakened him to his life's purpose. Although those years were not his best, they were the years that fertilized the seed his grandfather planted within him to cultivate the man he is today. This book is straight talk. It is nothing spectacular, but provocative, practical, profound and to the point. His advice to young people is believable and achievable. The book is trusting and real. Now, you be the judge!

During adolescence family dynamics change and teenagers often view parents as obstacles rather than supports. Teens wrestle with a range of crises from parental divorce to drug use. Even moving can cause major disruptions, since teenagers rely heavily on their peer group to help them through this time of change and self-discovery. Physical changes have an obvious impact. So does the death of a loved one, so do matters involving race. Teenagers experience changes in all aspects of their lives. For example, when Adam looks in the mirror, he can hardly recognize the person who has grown five inches taller than at the beginning of the summer. Lindsay worries that everyone is always looking at her and that no one understands how she feels. Zach wants to be popular and sure of himself, yet he often feels scared and shy when he is with a large group of kids. Katie is afraid to be alone and communicates constantly with friends by phone, text messaging, instant messaging, and on various Web sites. All these issues are dealt with clearly and candidly as college students remember what they went through when confronting the many physical, intellectual, emotional, and social changes that occur during adolescence.
