The Teenage Body Book, 2016 Edition

The Teenage Body Book, 2016 Edition
The Teenage Body Book provides a vast source of useful information, advice, and resources to help teenagers deal with many of the new, sometimes troubling situations that they face in their formative years.

Some teen issues are timeless: self-consciousness and uncertainty over rapidly changing bodies, tumultuous feelings, and dramatically changing lives. Many parents remember vividly their own youthful struggles. But today’s teens face challenges and possibilities that their parents never imagined: cyberbullying, pressure to sext, new attitudes about sexual orientation and gender, and medical advances that have changed teen lives.

The Teenage Body Book provides a platform for teens (and their parents) to discuss dilemmas, doubts, and possibilities that face young people in the new century.

Completely revised and updated for the first generation of teens to be born in the 21st century, The Teenage Body Book teaches teens how to overcome body image worries and maintain a healthy weight as well as making wise choices about drinking, smoking and drugs. The book helps them deal with depression, anxiety and stress as well as learning how to avoid STDs, pregnancy and abusive relationships.

The Teenage Body Book is simply everything teenagers and parents need to know about teenage nutrition, health, fitness, emotions, and sexuality.
