The issue also includes:
“We are always trying to provide parents with tools and strategies that will help them raise healthy teens,” Editor-in-Chief/Publisher Susan Borison says. “Our Fall issue of Your Teen will leave parents feeling better equipped to navigate key issues that teens are facing.”
Here are some excerpts:
“Parenting a Rock Star” (Justin Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette):
“Reflecting back, Mallette wonders whether her teenage years would have been less rocky if someone had recognized her struggles. 'It is so important for parents to listen to what teenagers are saying and not saying,' Mallette notes. 'I was filled with so much pain and shame from so many years of abuse. Never having dealt with it—or talked about it—I was self-medicating. If someone could have seen that, it would have been very helpful.'”
“Mirror, Mirror On the Wall”:
“I have spent my 49 years learning to tell myself that I am great each day, even as I might wish for a changed part of my body. I, along with many females I know, have wasted countless time worrying about our bodies instead of accepting and loving them as they are. I know what it’s like. And so, I need to help my daughters navigate the path that leads to them loving themselves and their bodies each and every day.”
From the article “Technology”:
“So, how do we handle technology when it comes to our teenagers? Well, it starts by bringing it under your parenting umbrella. In other words, technology is a privilege you’re handing your teenager—like driving or going out with friends—and it’s your job to help them use it appropriately, even when it’s for enjoyment."
