What Teens Really Want from Parents (Paperback)

By McGachie, Cathy

There are hundreds of books by adults and experts giving advice to parents on parenting teenagers. This book is different. In this book, teenagers have the opportunity to guide parents on how to parent them; what works, what doesn't and why. What better way is there than to hear ...it from the teenagers themselves? What Teens Really Want From Parents is for parents who want the 'unknown' territory of their relationship with their teen explained. By reading this book, parents will be given techniques on improving their relationship with their teenager and gain: a better understanding of teenagers and how they want to be treated; helpful tips to make the relationship between them and their teenager better; advice on how to set boundaries that teens are more likely to stick to; tactics that really work, so that teenagers are more responsive, trustworthy and open in the relationship; ideas on how to deal with difficult situations and out-of-bounds topics; suggestions for how to deal with topics such as sex, drugs, alcohol and school; insights into how they can be more approachable and how they can talk more easily with their teen; an understanding of the developmental needs of teenagers. This book offers a unique insight into what teenagers actually want from their parents. The real challenge comes from working out what applies and what doesn't work in your relationship with your teen.
