Help for Parents Building Relationships with Teens
Approved by Parents’ Choice: “It’s a calm read, in an encouraging and guilt-free voice, and it’s worth the time, even if everything’s going smoothly.”
This revised and updated edition of Teenagers and Parents: 12 Steps to a Better Relationship adds coverage of teen addictions to computers, cell phones, and social media.
Practical and easy to read, the book includes tips on communication strategies, social and school skills, substance abuse, and protecting the well-being of the parents themselves. About previous editions, reviewers said:
“Reassuring and enjoyable.” – La Leche League
“It helps guide parents to avoid the slammed doors and sulks [by using] techniques that work with teens.” – Southern Illinoisan
“Well-written, easily understood practical handbook…” – Kentucky School Counselor Assn.
This practical guide for parents includes numerous examples and conversations of family life taken from the author’s counseling experiences and home life with three daughters. Parents have called Dr. McIntire’s books “life-savers” in helping them build better relationships with their children.
