Publisher's Summary

Have you wondered if you're making the right decisions when it comes to raising your teenager?

Over the last years, there has been a lot of confusion about the role of boys and girls in our society. It's easy to see why parents are left with lots of unanswered questions when they're raising their children.

Raising teenagers the right way through positive parenting can significantly help them become responsible and balanced adults later on.

Here's some of what you can expect to learn in this audiobook:

  • How to avoid common mistakes that parents make that can end up harming their teenagers in the long term
  • How to teach proper conduct at home the right way, saving yourself countless headaches
  • Dealing with depression, anxiety, and feelings of loneliness
  • Helping your teenagers prepare for the future
  • The biggest challenges when raising teens and how to easily overcome them

Would you like to enjoy going through every stage of your teenager's development without worrying if you're doing the right thing or not?

The earlier you manage to give proper guidance, the easier it is for teens to grow into healthier adults. However, there is no such thing as being too late, and even the most damaging of behaviors and habits can be helped.

Do not leave anything to chance. Start by guiding your teenagers towards the best possible path towards a healthy and responsible adulthood today!

Practical. Concise. Excellent!

Well worth the money and time. If only most how-to books were the same, instead of 6 - 10 hours that’s 80% fluff! This is an hour. Yet, it’s... Practical. Concise. And Excellent! Thanks!!!

Helpful!

This approach is "tough love,"and will be very difficult for most parents. But it very well may keep the child from being dependent on his parents forever. Learning by making mistakes and accepting the consequences of actions is needed for the teen to mature and develop confidence.

Must have audiobook!

This is a must have book! I’ve had a bit of a rough time with my beautiful strong willed daughter. This book has helped me take back control in my home by simply not reacting. No longer coming up with punishment but allowing my child to come up with solutions herself.

Lovely audible

When you get tired of screaming and stressing yourself out over the lack of results all your demands and punishments are bringing, give the advice in this book a try. Keep an open mind. Ceasing to hover or be a drill sergeant is not easy, but I now love being a consultant parent instead.

Highly suggest!

Absolute BEST parenting book I've come across today. We have to roll with the times and this book has helped me understand my child and how it's different raising teens today vs. just 10 years ago (because I've done that too).... Highly suggest - especially during challenging years.

Highly recommended!

This book came highly recommended by our counselor. It has made a world of difference in my home. The fighting has stopped and the responsibility and respect are building every day. So many of the situations described in the book could have come straight from my life with my teen. AS I get better and better at practicing what this book teaches I am regaining my love of being a parent, and my teen is responding with the love I hoped to have from him.

On point with clear guidance for you and your team

Good real life examples explained why it gives the teen trouble, how you can help or how your own handling of the situation can make it worse even if the intent was well meant.

Very balanced and just long enough to give you a great overview and guidance, but short enought to fit in on a lunch or commute.

AMAZING!

This is a really great book with some easy to do items inside. We have been using these techniques for about 6 months with our teen girls and it is AMAZING the changes in them. I hear so much from others how they are more responsible than other kids their age and more mature. In the house there is a sense of calm that I didn't think would come with teen girls. It is crazy when the learn that their choices change how you function. Imagine a teen wanting a ride to get to work, and their room is not clean. You say... I will be happy to take you once your room is clean. I have heard the "but like it this way".... and I say.... ok, keep me posted on how you will get to your destination so I don't worry. :) As they know that is their choice. Either way... I highly recommend the book.

Teaches to behave well!

This is a great book for learning how to have a better relationship with your kids and parenting with consequences instead of punishments. It really gives them a feeling of control and teaches them to live with their choices.

Glad to have this audible

This is a great way to parent. I'm glad that I started listening these books while my children are young so they are more receptive once they hit their teenage years. If you're just starting this and your children are teenagers, better late than never!
