NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Jerry Weichman -- a popular Newport Beach based teen psychologist, parenting expert and motivational speaker -- today announced the publication of How to Deal, his first book for young adults. The book, which was pre-ordered by various school administrators throughout Orange County, follows Dr. Weichman through his personal struggles while giving readers practical tools and advice for dealing with the challenges of being a teenager today.
"Sex, drugs and alcohol, stress, social drama and extraordinary academic pressure -- being a teenager is harder than ever. Teens today are facing adult pressures and issues on a daily basis. Especially with access to the Internet, cell phones and two-ways, teens are exposed to -- and are expected to keep up with -- a constant stream of adult information," said Jerry Weichman, Ph.D., author of How to Deal. "As teens struggle to define who they are, they often demand the freedom and responsibility of being an adult, when they really need and crave structure. The frustration of being caught between childhood and adulthood causes many teens to act out by rebelling against parents, teachers and other adults in their lives. The goal of How to Deal is to give teens a fresh perspective and arm them with the practical tools they need to make it through high school and become healthy, happy adults."
Dr. Weichman's vibrant personality and his ability to speak to teens in their own language are largely responsible for his effectiveness, popularity and the cult-like following he has gathered since opening a private practice in Newport Beach during 2005. Dr. Weichman is expected to release a parenting companion book to How to Deal in late 2008.
