Help for any parent with a teenager who is chatty one day and morose the next, who refuses to come out of their room or get off their smart phone, or who argues endlessly with everyone around them
With warmth, good humor, and insight, a clinical psychologist offers crucial advice on achieving a happy home life while raising teens. He focuses on what is actually happening in the teenage brain; common issues that most teens face including anxiety, arguments, computer addiction, peer pressure, perfectionism, and self harm; ways to parent teenage boys and teenage girls and why these methods differ; identifying and defusing clash points in the family; creating a detailed six-week plan that will help break negative behavior patterns within a family and create positive new ones; and essential conversations you can have with your teen, including information about love, money, drugs, jobs, and personal values, that will help shape them into the wonderful mature people you know they will be one day. For more than 30 years Andrew has worked with teens and their parents. Andrew stresses that teenage boys think and develop differently to teenage girls and so he offers advice specific to each gender. Overall his main focus is on creating and nurturing open and solid relationships between parents and their teens that will lead into a well-balanced adulthood."
