Being the parent of a teen is rewarding, exciting, and challenging. In making the change from parenting a child to parenting a young adult, you might feel sad as you see your son or daughter leave childhood. Maybe you worry about sex, drugs, violence, eating habits, grades, or friends. Seeing your teen's changing values, you may panic. You might also enjoy watching your teenager grow and mature. Many parents find great satisfaction in "getting to know" the new person who is their gradually maturing teen.
We believe that the rewards of parenting teenagers can far outweigh the challenges. With skills and understanding, you can guide your teen to be responsible, cooperative, and independent. In doing this, you build a strong, positive relationship with your teenager. Even parents facing serious problems with teens can find more effective ways to get along with and help their teenager.
PARENTING TEENAGERS provides a practical approach to help you do this. Millions of parents have found the skills and ideas in this book to be effective. If you put them into practice, they will help you improve your relationship with your teenager. They will help you be the best parent you can be.
Many parents find the teen years the most trying times of all. Some think they've failed in the job of child rearing. Many of these parents also believe that because their teens are practically adults, parents can't influence them or improve family relationships. We believe that parents can develop rewarding relationships with their teenagers and can help their teens become more cooperative, contributing members of the family. Begin by taking reasonable steps with your teens.
We suggest that you pace yourself by spending a week on each chapter. Read each chapter in the order presented. During that week, study the activities and charts in the chapter. Be sure to take time to carry out the activities titled "This Week," "Just for You," and "For Your Family." If you're willing to stick with it, PARENTING TEENAGERS will help you take your next good steps as a parent. The skills you learn can serve as guidelines in building a happy home.
