The years from Ten to Fourteen are undeniably trying and turbulent years for parents and children alike. Adolescents develop by leaps and bounds during these years, and often find themselves uncomfortable with who they are and what they’re feeling. Parents, too, don’t know what to expect from the adolescent child who is at one moment hostile and glum, at the next carefree and happy.Your Ten- to Fourteen-Year-Old was written by renowned child-care experts Louise Bates Ames, Frances Ilg, and Sidney Baker to help prepare parents for the incredible changes their children will be going through.

• Boy-girl relationships and sexual curiosity
• Clubs, hobbies, activities, sports

“Louise Bates Ames and her colleagues synthesize a lifetime of observation of children, consultation, and discussion with parents.

While some of the detail about our contemporary society will feel out of date, these books remain as invaluable as ever in thinking about the changes children are going through and what is developmentally appropriate.
