Adolescence is a difficult time for teenagers, but it can also be a troublesome time for their parents - a time of profound and even life-altering change.
Based on the findings of Dr. Steinberg's study of more than 200 families, Crossing Paths explores the emotional turmoil that a child's adolescence can initiate in parents and recommends practical ways to avoid or lessen that turmoil.
