VARGAS, Nelson A.. Transición de la infancia a la adolescencia: notas para la práctica pediátrica. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2004, vol.102, n.1, pp.60-64. ISSN 0325-0075.

The transition from childhood to adolescence is analyzed based on information found in Internet, Chilean research results obtained in the decades of 1980 and 1990 and personal experience. Some guidelines are proposed to make this transition easier and softer as well as to prevent problems or to allow quick and better detection of eventual major crises. Emphasis is made on the advantage of taking into account individual general and family contexts and the convenience of preparedness. Anticipatory guides for parents and children are outlined as potentially useful tools while some practical management attitudes are suggested for preparation. The importance of good communication and advisable parent's communication styles is emphasized.
