Written in a smart, funny, and friendly tone, The Approximate Parent: Discovering the Strategies That Work with Your Teenager helps you translate what your teen thinks, feels, and does to give you practical ways of supporting your teen, from adolescence into adulthood. Learn to strategize wisely, taking into account both the current American culture of adolescents and your particular teen's biology, temperament, and developmental challenges.
This highly accessible book is informed by the latest research on adolescent development, effects of digital media on youth and identity formation, relationships, sexuality and trends in drug and alcohol use, drawing on work in such diverse fields as clinical psychology, cognitive neuroscience, epigenetics, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and religious studies. Michael Simon uses his 25 years of work with teens as a psychotherapist, school counselor, and parent to help make your job easier as a parent, educator or health professional.
The Approximate Parent is a must-have if you have a teen in your house...or want to support the teens in your life.

This title is also available for the Kindle in serialized form, allowing you to buy one chapter at a time, or the entire book.
