Closing the Gap: A Strategy for Bringing Parents and Teens Togetherby Jay McGraw
Jay McGraw has proved himself to be the voice for a new generation of teens. Teens who, despite their problems, insecurities, and fears, want to make a better life for themselves, want to break out of their molds, and want to discover their real potential. McGraw's Life Strategies for Teens is one of the most popular books for teens ever. And because of it, teens learned the power of the life laws -- from "You either get it, or you don't" to "Life rewards action." McGraw showed teenagers that the Life Strategies were not just for their parents. In this latest work, Jay delves deeper into teen life, examining their ever changing, ever nerve-racking relationships with parents and peers.
Closing the Gap goes beyond the issue that teens are in trouble -- it goes straight to the heart of the bond between teens and their friends and relatives, showing both how to communicate, love, and become close again. There has yet to be a book that provides rules and steps for both adult and child to make them stronger in their relationships with one another. Jay McGraw gives that plan to help all sides learn to listen and speak, act and react more effectively with each other. And through that reconnection, learn to become active and instrumental parts of one another's lives again.
