Wonderful news for worried parents! "Parents can raise great teens without the fear of storm and stress," say Gary Ezzo and Dr. Robert Bucknam. These parenting experts and bestselling authors explain that parents need not expect rebellion and conflict during their children's adolescence. The authors offer practical how-tos for building a positive relationship that leads to teen years marked by excitement, respect, and smooth family interaction. They show that the key is learning to build bridges to your teen's heart, and creating a strong family fabric that lasts well beyond the difficult teenage years.
The final book in the series helps parents to learn how to move past current struggles and start over with credibility, prevent teenage rebellion in the future, and determine how to build lasting parent-teen friendships starting today.
Why do teenagers rebel? Is it due to hormones, a suppressed primal desire to stake out their own domain, or a natural and predictable process of growth? To what extent do parents encourage or discourage the storm and stress of adolescence? On Becoming Teenwise looks at the many factors that make living with a teenager a blessing or a curse. It exposes the notions of cultural myth and brings to light the proven how-to applications of building and maintaining healthy relationships with your teens.
For some parents, the biggest challenge is to get their teen to turn off the bedroom light without being reminded. Others are faced with school and peer influences but no serious relational difficulty. Yet, many others are in open war with their teens and are deeply troubled, to the point of despair. They are overwhelmed by the feeling that something has gone dreadfully wrong and are continually berated by an inner voice that relentlessly chants, "You are a failure."
