Parenting teenagers can be tricky at the best of times. But when the tough issues arise - behavioural problems, unacceptable risk-taking, bullying, alcohol abuse - things can get extremely difficult and parents can struggle with what to do. Drawing on psychologist Michael Hawton's 30 years of experience, Engaging Adolescents is a practical guide to help you steer your teenager through the challenging times with confidence.
The book covers the following areas: teenagers and what helps them develop personal control; how to sort out behaviour so you don't over react; what we can learn from watching professionals who manage emergencies; and, proven, practical methods for managing tempestuous teenagers.
Using case studies and based on universally-accepted mediation principles, this is a highly practical, skills-based book that gives you the tools to resolve conflict and build better family relationships. Engaging Adolescents offers a clear, method-based approach to ease the distress of parents experiencing difficulties with their teenagers' behaviour.
