Dominique Thompson introduces her book, How to Grow a Grown Up, co-authored with education expert Fabienne Vailes, which looks at raising teenagers to thrive in the modern world.
Parenting in the 21st century means navigating a very different world to the one in which we grew up. Our children are under 24/7 pressure to be ‘always on’ and their ‘best self’ and they are often less prepared for a challenging world.
“Dr Dominique Thompson is the UK’s leading GP on student mental health and she will reveal why young people may be struggling more, and what we can all do to help our children develop the life skills they need to thrive in this new and changing world.
“Whether you are supporting a young person struggling with academic pressure, school or university life, or you are curious about what lies ahead for your younger child, How to Grow a Grown Up will help you to build your child’s confidence and resilience so they can become a strong, happy and independent adult.”
