Parents can easily feel overwhelmed when faced with a moody, defiant, unfocused, unpredictable, angry or overly-sensitive teenager. They wonder if these changes are a normal part of adolescence or if their teen is in need of help. When to Worry helps parents distinguish typical teenage behaviors from those that merit concern. It then walks parents through steps they can take to help troubled teens before it's too late. Parents will learn: warning signs of serious problems *how and where to get professional help *what solution works best for each problem *the pros and cons of medication When to Worry provides essential information on the full spectrum of problematic teenage issues including mood swings, depression, rebellion, low self-esteem, delinquency, school difficulties, alcohol and drug use, antisocial behavior, cutting, agression, and eating disorders.
