Until Skins , every teen party on TV seemed to end in an overdose, every sexual encounter some kind of STI — but here we got to see young, unknown actors many of whom went on to be Hollywood stars revelling in the delights of adolescence, showing that teenage identity exploration and drug use are often just quite a lot of fun. If Skins showed what party-loving sixth-formers got up to, then The Inbetweeners panned across to the neeks in the corner of the common room. It may have pushed things too far with this effort, which ran for two series in , and specifically focused on adolescent rutting. There were pieces on BDSM, Andalusian shagging holidays and vajazzling — but a letter signed by 23 health and education professionals condemned Channel 4 for giving poor advice. Now if you try to Google the show, you are faced with a warning reminding you that child pornography is illegal. In , reports of a year-old in Peru whose suicide appeared to mimic the one depicted in the show raised further concerns. A sign of how the debate around TV in the Netflix era is changing, Big Mouth is an rated animated show about puberty aimed at teens. It suggests controversy is now focused only on shows that put teens in danger, not those that simply celebrate the rude bits of growing up.
Both Peggy Orenstein and Cara Natterson have children who — deliberately, I assume — are mentioned only occasionally in their excellent books about raising better boys. Instead, Orenstein relies on the revealing and sometimes painfully intimate interviews she conducted over the course of two years with boys aged 16 to 22, and Natterson draws from years of practical experience as a pediatrician, and her ability to boil down complicated scientific studies to their tablespoon of curative parental medicine. But the personal stakes for both authors are clear, and urgent. These writers are worried. Our boys get awkward and quiet; we parents get awkwarder and quieter. To her credit, Orenstein acknowledges her biases.

Should either of you sisters raise your children and wonder what faith will they choose. I can only say that I was that girl, 10 years ago.
