PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The End of Adolescence On television in the newspapers even in textbooks of psychiatry the teen years are portrayed as bad news Adolescents are seen as moody rebellious promiscuous immature aggressive and lazy Their behavior is seen as getting worse as we move into the twenty first century .
In fact the majority of young people have none of these objectionable characteristics Adolescents have always been stigmatised as they are today and it is widely thought that it is natural for the teens to be a difficult phase of life But it is the adult world that has created the world of adolescence and the adult world that is finding it difficult to live with what it has manufactured .
This book puts foward an entirely new way of looking at adolescence Written by a leading child psychiatrist it starts by describing the myths that pervade the popular view of adolescence After a brief description of the history of adolescence it goes on to examine the way the teens actually function in families giving particular attention to approaches that result in positive outcomes Discussing moodiness conflict sexual behavior drugs and alcohol and eating patterns it adopts the same questioning but positive approach .
The book then looks at how the sense of frustration and failure many teenagers experience at school and in their neighborhoods might be overcome by giving them a level of responsibility that matches their competence This book will be of great value to parents of teenagers and those whose children are just about to become teenagers as well as teachers psychologists and anyone whose work brings them in touch with young people
