The teenage years are turbulent and difficult for most teens. Smart teens are faced with additional challenges that are rarely addressed and that are likely to result in a “mental disorder” label (like ADHD). In Why Smart Teens Hurt, teens, their parents, and all interested readers will learn:



  • How to identify the 16 characteristic challenges that smart teens face





  • How to employ clear, simple strategies for dealing with each of these 16 challenges





  • How to deal with the special anxieties that come with being both smart and a teen





  • How to deal with the existential despair that makes the teen years so dark and difficult for so many smart teens





  • How to deal with the powerful hunger to “get on with life” that causes smart teens so much agitation and restlessness





  • How smart teens can more effectively deal with family dynamics, including inevitable family collisions





  • How smart teens can deal with the pressure put on them not to manifest their individuality or their intelligence





  • How smart teens can create a plan for navigating their way through their turbulent teen years




This first-ever look at the special challenges facing smart teens paints a clear picture of a smart teen’s struggles—and what he or she can do to both survive and thrive.
