Publisher's Summary

Children can lose their way as they enter the Bermuda Triangle of pre-adolescence, and parents can feel like they are piloting without instruments. Surrounded by mounting pressures from peers, adults, and the media to succeed at an early age, children can become confused and overwhelmed as they are put on a fast track to meet expectations previously reserved for older children.Tricia Ferrara, M.A., parenting strategist and family therapist, offers practical advice to help parents guide their pre-adolescents during this tricky stage and set them up for success throughout their lives.By using logic and science to explain the relevance of cutting-edge research from a variety of disciplines, she gives parents navigational tools that can help them decide which course is best as they face the increasing complexity of challenges that could not have been anticipated by previous generations.She developed the "Parenting in the 21st Century" series of live presentations as a resource to which parents can refer again and again as they raise their children.The Bermuda Triangle of Pre-Adolescence identifies tactics parents can use to help their children create and maintain a strong sense of self, resiliency and the emotional integrity that will equip them to navigate the storms of life even when their parents aren't there.Parents will learn how to position themselves as a resource instead of the enemy by developing a shared vision while following rules that allow them to parent with possibilities.This audio includes a Bonus Section: "More on the Bermuda Triangle".

Really great information however

Since it is a lecture presented to an audience, there is a missing piece. We can't see what she's making reference to in her examples.
