Authored by an acclaimed pediatric endocrinologist and a clinical psychologist, The New Puberty combines and analyzes decades of research for the first time. For parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, psychologists, pediatricians, and the health-conscious consumer, The New Puberty introduces new theories and strategies on how to handle and nurture girls who are now entering this unique stage of their lives before age 10. At once prescriptive and inspiring, The New Puberty provides a roadmap to making the most of this transition and allowing the girls and young women of today grow into happy, successful adults.
