Puberty is tough—on kids and maybe even more so on parents! Parenting Through Puberty explains the physical and emotional changes families can expect to see in their child. Dr. Kowal-Connelly covers the nitty-gritty of children's changing bodies, and, critically, she addresses the emotional toll puberty can take, covering issues of moodiness, body image, and self-esteem. Dr. Kowal-Connelly's reassuring advice also includes ways to encourage adolescents to embrace a healthy, active lifestyle in these crucial years, with tips on exercise and nutrition.
