The changes and challenges of adolescence can leave many parents feeling overwhelmed at times with fear, confusion, frustration, and a lack of understanding. But here you'll find hope to help you understand and effectively parent your teen. Dr. Walt Mueller brings more than 30 years of adolescent research (and his own parenting experience) to help you through the tumultuous years of adolescence.
For many parents, raising children seems pretty manageable until the teenage years. Then fear, confusion, frustration, and lack of understanding begin to invade the hearts and minds of these once-confident parents. The ?normal? changes of adolescence seem to be nothing but abnormal to parents who begin to feel like helpless bystanders. But parents don?t need to feel alone or paralyzed by these feelings. For nearly twenty years, Walt Mueller has studied adolescents and the culture they're surrounded by. His expertise was put to the test when his own children became teenagers. Now he's bringing wisdom from research and his own experience to help parents through the tumultuous years of adolescence. With empathy and practical tools, parents will address several important issues, including the questions: * How can I begin to facilitate a smoother adolescent period for my teen? * How can I begin to break through the walls of confusion, fear, frustration, and misunderstanding? * How can I be a positive and proactive bridgebuilder into the life and world of my teenager?
