Wonderful book for parents of teenagers
on October 31, 2011
At this point in time in our lives, we don't have a teenager but having four kids with the oldest being 10 years old, I know that these years are just around the corner.
To be honest, I like to be prepare... I somewhat remember when I was a teen and I know that I probably gave some white hair to my poor mom. Therefore, knowing what I went through (and my husband knowing what he went through), we have decided to prepare ourselves in advance. Mind you I know that we might not be fully prepared but still having books from authors like Dr. Leman is nice to have in our bookshelves.
So like I said, I am not officially in the teenage years but nevertheless, I have read the book and find it very instructive and an eye opener as well. The book will help you to make adjustments living with a teen, reaching his/her heart through these difficult years, how to raise a street-smart kid, how to keep him/her in your world and navigate in his/her world at the same time and how to take advantage of these years. At the end of the book, Dr. Leman also approach 75 hot topics that parents ask him during his seminars. Not only will you read his thoughts about topics like driving, drugs, eye-rolling, attitude and so on but you will also read stories from parents who tried his tips.
The more I read Dr. Leman's books, the more I am sold out to him. I am learning quite a bit while reading this book and I am feeling less stressed about the upcoming dreadful years ahead of us.
