"All Grown Up and No Place to Go spotlights the pressures on teenagers to grow up quickly. The resulting problems range from common alienation to self-destructive behavior. Quoting teenagers themselves, Elkind shows why adolescence is a time of "thinking in a new key," and how young people need this time to get used to the social and emotional changes their new thinking brings. Many of his ideas, such as the "imaginary audience" that makes teens so self-conscious, have become seminal in adolescent psychology." "In this thoroughly revised edition, Elkind also explores the "post-modern family" in which teenagers are growing up. He helps parents and those who work with youth understand teens in crucial ways, because the root of so many adolescent frictions is the gap between what teenagers need and what our culture provides."--BOOK JACKET.

Elkind's classic on "hurried teens" condemns how society pushes adolescents to assume adult roles too soon. This thorough revision argues that new trends among teens--long work hours, rising violence, and pregnancies--make an even stronger case for protecting adolescents instead of pressuring them. "A valuable tour of adolescent thinking".--Ms.
-Publisher

Once our society set aside time for adolescents to grow from children to adults, to become accustomed to their expanding bodies and minds. Now the markers that defined passage--differences in dress, behavior, and responsibilities--have vanished. The institutions that guarded adolescence, such as family and schools, now expect "young adults" to deal with adult issues. Those trends leave teens no time to be teens."All Grown Up and No Place to Go" spotlights the pressures on teenagers to grow up quickly. The resulting problems range from common alienation to self-destructive behavior. Quoting teenagers themselves, Elkind shows why adolescence is a time of "thinking in a new key," and how young people need this time to get used to the social and emotional changes their new thinking brings. Many of his ideas, such as the "imaginary audience" that makes teens so self-conscious, have become seminal in adolescent psychology.Already there are more than 175,000 copies of "All Grown Up and No Pl
