I have read dozens of books on raising teenagers, but this is the ONLY ONE that has captured the attention of every member of our family. It's well-researched and fun, but most importantly, it offers 3 simple rules--Stay Safe, Show Respect, Keep in Touch--that our teenagers agree they can follow!! And when they slip up, it offers reasonable consequences that even they can swallow.
READ THIS BOOK AND THEN LEAVE IT OUT WHERE YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS CAN FLIP THROUGH IT. I am not exaggerating when I say that it will change the way you and your teens interact.
Jennifer Marshall Lippincott and Robin M. Deutsch discuss the issues facing teenagers and the best way parents can talk with them about these issues. The two present current theories about adolescents as well as the most recent research regarding adolescent brain development. They have insights as to why adolescents can lie, acknowledge the importance of friends in the lives of adolescents, but offer evidence that contradicts popular theory, namely that friends have more of an influence than parents and other trusted adults. This seems to be what prompted them to write this book and encourage communication between adults and teens in spite of what appear to be obstacles.Read more ›
