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.

What do you do when your son announces he is transgender and asks that you call her by a new name? Or what if your child uses a term you’ve never heard of to describe themselves (neutrois, agender, non-binary, genderqueer, androgyne…) and when you didn’t know what they meant, they left the room and now won’t speak to you about it? Perhaps your daughter recently asked you not to use gendered pronouns when referring to ‘her’ anymore, preferring that you use “they”; you’re left wondering if this is just a phase, or if there’s something more that you need to understand about your child. There is a generational divide in our understandings of gender. This comprehensive guidebook helps to bridge that divide by exploring the unique challenges that thousands of families face every day raising a teenager who may be transgender, non-binary, gender-fluid or otherwise gender-expansive. Combining years of experience working in the field with extensive research and personal interviews, the authors cover pressing concerns relating to physical and emotional development, social and school pressures, medical considerations, and family communications. Learn how parents can more deeply understand their children, and raise their non-binary or transgender adolescent with love and compassion.

Being a teen has always been challenging, but today teens face issues that have been compounded by a rapidly changing society and a plethora of technology. These changes require new strategies in ways to teach teens to protect themselves from the challenges they will constantly face in school and community, and with their friends and family. Some of the areas in which teens need to worry about their personal safety include: Risks related to violence including bullying, exposure to gangs, and harm from guns and other weapons. Online dangers including harassment, cyber-bullying, sexually explicit materials, identity theft and financial theft and scams, and agreeing to meet strangers in person after developing online relationships. Victimization of crimes. Risks while driving in dangerous ways, including driving after drinking or taking drugs, underestimating dangerous road situations, texting or using cell phones inappropriately and not wearing seat belts. Putting themselves in personal danger by pressures to do things they do not want to do such as experimenting with drugs and alcohol, having unprotected sex, going to unsafe places by themselves and engaging in risky behaviors. For teens, staying safe is a much more difficult task than in the past. To help teens sharpen their awareness of the need and ways to stay safe, the Teen Safety Workbook will guide them as they explore situations fraught with danger and face people who may threaten their safety. During adolescence, teens are eager to press to become more independent from their parents, caregivers or family. They need to learn to be more responsible for their own safety. Regardless of whether they are at home, school, work, or in the community, or online, they must face great safety hazards and need to be aware of them. Teens' judgment levels are still forming; most are not ready to make adult level decisions. It is vital for teens to learn that they have the power to keep themselves safe and to be equipped with the tools to overcome dangerous situations.The Teen Safety Workbook is designed to help teens engage in self-reflection, examine their thoughts and feelings that go into the decisions they make, and learn effective tools and techniques to stay safe in the future. This book combines two powerful psychological tools for the management of unsafe, potentially dangerous thoughts, feelings, and behaviors: self-assessment and journaling. The Teen Safety Workbook contains five separate sections to help the participants learn more about the choices they have made and the choices they have yet to make in their lives: Positive Feelings Scale helps teens explore the negative feelings they are experiencing in life and learn effective methods to constructively express their emotions. Healthy Choices Scale helps teens explore how healthy or unhealthy their lifestyle choices are. Social Media Safety Scale helps teens explore safe behaviors while texting, chatting, using social media sites, and surfing the Internet. Relationship Safety Scale helps teens explore the safety in their family, friendships, and dating relationships. Self-Harm Scale helps teens explore the extent to which they deliberately harm themselves in attempts to cope with intense, overwhelming emotions. Enrichment activities at the end of each chapter are a third tool for facilitators of teens from families struggling with substance abuse.

This study explored the embodied teen experience of parent-teen conflict and argument using a hermeneutic-phenomenological approach. Teens self-identified as (a) living in a family with everyday conflict, (b) not seeing a psychologist or counselor, (c) not having been in any drug or alcohol treatment programs, (d) not knowing the researcher ahead of time, and (e) being between the ages of 13 to 19 at the time the interview took place. The following themes emerged: (a) feeling powerless, small, devalued, and oppressed; (b) experiencing irritation, frustration, hypocrisy, pettiness, and defiance; (c) wanting freedom and autonomy and the battle for control; and (d) needing safe space and me time. Each theme and the whole embodied essence of this experience were interpreted through teens' as well as the researcher's lenses. The interpretations provide insight for teens, parents, and parent educators that may help improve parent-teen relationships and provide strategies to use in the classroom setting.
