Strict? Lenient? Laid-back? or Tiger Mom? -- Searching hopelessly for the right approach to raising teenagers in today's world? Dr. Donna can help! Using her essential steps and foundational principles, you will start to reconnect with your teen in a way you could only imagine possible. Where there was once conflict, avoidance or disrespect, you will experience joy, connectedness and mutual trust. Dr. Donna is an educator, consultant and researcher who has worked with adolescents and their parents for more than twenty-five years. During that time she observed hundreds of teen-parent interactions and concluded that the success of each of those relationships hinged less on how the teen behaved and more on how the adult interacted with teen. Dr. Donna theorizes that adults who have comfortable, harmonious and successful relationships with teenagers understand some essentials truths about teens and the life stage of adolescence, the same truths that adults who struggle to form positive relationships with teens seem not to understand. In Teen Talk Dr. Donna puts these truths into workable strategies and easy to understand principles that any parent or adult who wants to build rapport and trust with teenagers can employ. Through the stories of other parents who struggle and fumble and those who get it right, Dr. Donna helps you recognize your own challenges and celebrate your successes too. Transform yourself from an out-of-touch nag or an ineffectual cool parent to a Trusted Mentor using Dr. Donna's methods for building rapport and trust with your teenager.
