Excellent tool for Parents of stuggling teens,
This review is from: To Change a Mind: Parenting to Promote Maturity in Teenagers (Paperback)
This book in combination with John McKinnon's first book, The Unchanged Mind, are must reads for parents of any teenager that is either pushing limits or in the throws of crisis. In The Unchanged Mind - you will find your troubled teen on those pages - their out of control bahavior will begin to make sense to you and you will feel less alone. After you gain understanding, reading To Change a Mind will give you the tools to help them move forward in life. The answers are common sense, but seeing them in action in this book gives you the resolve to stay strong and keep working YOUR system rather than getting pulled into their drama. I read both books after sending my son to a Wilderness program. They gave me hope in a very dark time and continue to give me the strength today to help him continue his journey to maturity in a thoughtful way. I highly reccomend these books to parents of any teen that is experiencing trouble in adolescence.
