But I'm Almost 13! by Kenneth R. Ginsburg
Book DescriptionThis title presents an action plan for parents about to enter the teen zone. The overwhelming majority of adolescent health problems today result not from physical disease but from worrisome behaviors, such as reckless driving and drug use, or emotional problems, such as anxiety or depression. The good news is that if parents take action early, before teen rebellion kicks in, most of these problems are preventable. In "But I'm Almost 13!", one of the nation's foremost specialists in adolescent medicine offers a series of step-by-step strategies for behavioral change that can lower risk factors and build positive skills. Dr. Ginsburg explains why it's important to know how young people think and to build on their strengths.This invaluable book will equip you with the skills to: make kids aware of problems and consider consequences; motivate changes in behavior; help kids cope with peer pressure and stress; discipline by guiding rather than punishing; see beyond negative teen stereotypes; safely increase your child's independence; strengthen the parent-child connection through positive attention; and, much more! Also included are sample scripts, real-life stories, and specific exercises to help you successfully prepare for the challenging adolescent years by becoming a supportive, proactive parent now. Because no matter how much your child tells you he or she is ready to grow up, you are still the most important person in your child's life.
