Summary "In this book, former Head Master of Eton and bestselling author Tony Little and child and adolescent psychiatrist Herb Etkin tackle the problems faced by adolescents and set out how to combat them. [This book] covers a range of subjects from what adolescence actually is, to topics such as drug use and discipline, food, sexuality, emotional turbulence, 'screenagers', character and wellbeing. The book sets adolescence in context before Little and Etkin engage in a series of question-and-answer dialogues to tackle key issues that are relevant and useful to anyone working or living with adolescents, and teenagers themselves." -- From book jacket flap.
