Adolescence is a time of rapid cognitive development, and extensive emotional and attitudinal changes. During this time, adolescents typically attach more importance to their friends and peer groups than to their parents, which can often led to conflict within the family.

In this groundbreaking new book, international experts on adolescent problem behaviour examine the roles that parents can adopt to ensure that adolescent is a time of positive personality growth. Based on the latest research findings, What Can Parents Do? examines the role that adolescents play as active agents in their relationships with their parents, discusses approaches to conceptualising complex parenting models and applies research findings from the parenting of younger children to adolescence research.

An erudite and fascinating read, this book will be invaluable to researchers and academics in developmental psychology, social psychologists and clinical child psychologists.
