Synopsis: As a parent, you want to see your teen succeed in school and in life--and you do your best to help. But how do you know what will make a difference? Maybe it's time to listen to a teacher.

Day in and day out, teachers watch kids interact with peers, make decisions, deal with difficulty, accept or deflect responsibility . . . Teachers are our eyes and ears--and there's a lot they wish we knew.

In Teenagers 101, veteran high school teacher Rebecca Deurlein examines how we can support our teens as they cope with the challenges of the modern world. In an age of instant gratification, how do they learn to work hard? How do they become self-reliant when Mom and Dad are quick to step in? How do they make the transition from kids to adults? Speaking as an educator and a parent herself, Deurlein offers practical strategies for getting teens to:

Be self-motivated - Take responsibility for learning - Puzzle through problems - Become their own advocate - Present themselves well - And more

Packed with engaging anecdotes and backed by years of experience, Teenagers 101 is a crash course on the skills teenagers everywhere need to thrive in college and beyond.

From the Back Cover:

Moody, flighty, enigmatic--teenagers can make us anxious. Will they ever do their homework without being nagged? Why do they care about fashion more than their classes? When will they take responsibility for their decisions and stop blaming other kids, teachers, or you?

For answers, we turn to family, friends, counselors--everyone but the people who observe teens day in and day out: their teachers! In Teenagers 101, veteran teacher Rebecca Deurlein offers a rare window into the teenage experience at school, with insights for guiding them through these transitional years.

With warmth, humor, and straight-talking advice, she identifies the everyday teen behaviors that cause teachers real concern, such as making excuses, cheating, failing to advocate for themselves, and giving up in the face of difficulty. And she exposes the negative impacts of cherished parental practices like offering rewards for grades or over-assisting with homework.

The best outcomes, she explains, are achieved through healthy support, stripped of excessive coddling. Teenagers 101 follows a middle path between hands-off and hover-craft, where common sense and parental love fuse into a parenting style that fosters internal growth.

Scenarios, scripts, and targeted solutions teach you when to step in and when to step back, how to activate your teen's motivation, what the hidden advantages of honors and AP classes are, and how to forge alliances with teachers. You'll focus on character as the key driver of success, and learn to instill the crucial life lessons teenagers need as they feel their way into adulthood.

Rebecca Deurlein, Ed.D., has taught in school systems around the country. She has a doctoral degree in educational leadership and has raised two children of her own.
