The Teen Interpreter A Guide to the Challenges and Joys of Raising Adolescents Book Excerpt:

The Teen Interpreter is a generous roadmap for enjoying the most challenging, and rewarding, parenting years. Once children hit adolescence, it seems as if overnight “I love you” becomes “leave me alone,” and any question from a parent can be dismissed with one word: “fine.” But while they may not show it, teenagers rely on their parents’ curiosity, delight, and connection to guide them through this period of exuberant growth as they navigate complex changes to their bodies, their thought processes, their social world, and their self-image. In The Teen Interpreter, psychologist Terri Apter looks into teens’ minds—minds that are experiencing powerful new emotions and awareness of the world around them—to show how parents can revitalize their relationship with their children. She illuminates the rapid neurological developments of a teen’s brain, along with their new, complex emotions, and offers strategies for disciplining unsafe actions constructively and empathetically. Apter includes up-to-the moment case studies that shed light on the anxieties and vulnerabilities that today’s teens face, and she thoughtfully explores the positives and pitfalls of social media. With perceptive conversation exercises that synthesize research from more than thirty years in the field, Apter illustrates how teens signal their changing needs and identities—and how parents can interpret these signals and see the world through their teens’ eyes. The Teen Interpreter is a generous roadmap for enjoying the most challenging, and rewarding, parenting years.

Raising Teenagers With Healthy Self Esteem Book Excerpt:

Do you know that one of the major challenges facing most teenagers is the issue of low self-esteem? Studies have shown that low self-esteem is linked to poor academic performance and achievements, violence, school drop-out rates, drug addictions, teenage pregnancy and teens' suicide. Another research revealed that most boys and girls said they joined gangs not to feel safer but to feel important. And one out of four girls said they had sex the first time to feel more loved or popular. These findings simply show that teenagers desperately need help to overcome their silent battles with low self-esteem.Yes, teenagers often put up a facade of self-sufficiency and pretend that they have everything under control, but the truth is that they desperately need your help as a parent. More so, it has been proven empirically that the greatest influence on the life of a teenager comes from the parents. Not the internet, media or movie. However, as a parent, you may not be able to help them in this regard if you lack the requisite knowledge or proven strategies to adopt in solving this problem. Hence, the reason this masterpiece was written for you.It's a pragmatic template that every parent and teacher needs to raise teens with a high sense of self-esteem, confidence and self-worth. Also, it's a course-correction manual for parents whose teenagers are currently suffering from low self-esteem.This book is unique in itself because the author practically understands what it means to suffer from low self-esteem because he experienced it himself as a teenager, and he has been working with teenagers for about two decades.The author's conversational approachand the lavish use of anecdotes make the book unique among others with similar subject matter.This book is not only a must-read for you, but it must be recommended to family members and friends who have kids and teens, and have the mindset to practicalise these proven keys. Enjoy it!

Grandmotherhood Book Excerpt:

By the year 2030, the average life expectancy of women in industrialized countries could reach ninety--exceeding that of men by about ten years. At the present time, postmenopausal women represent more than fifteen percent of the world's population and this figure is likely to grow. From an evolutionary perspective, these demographic numbers pose some intriguing questions. Darwinian theory holds that a successful life is measured in terms of reproduction. How is it, then, that a woman's lifespan can greatly exceed her childbearing and childrearing years? Is this phenomenon simply a byproduct of improved standards of living, or do older women--grandmothers in particular--play a measurable role in increasing their family members' biological success? Until now, these questions have not been examined in a thorough and comprehensive manner. Bringing togethertheoretical and empirical work byinternationally recognized scholars in anthropology, psychology, ethnography, and the social sciences, Grandmotherhood explores the evolutionary purpose and possibilities of female post-generative life. Students and scholars of human evolution, anthropology, and even gerontology will look to this volume as a major contribution to the current literature in evolutionary studies.
