What Do You Do When Your Teenager Is in Trouble?

Where do you turn for dependable, expert advice?

Start here. Helping Your Struggling Teenager gives you the practical information you need as a parent on thirty-six common, critical concerns your child may face. From drug and alcohol abuse to parental divorce and premarital sex, professional Christian counselor Les Parrott gives you essential insights not only on specific issues, but also on how to offer effective help as a parent.

Topics are arranged in alphabetical order. Each chapter sheds light on several vital questions: What does the specific struggle look like? Why did it happen? How can a counselor help? When should a counselor consult another professional, and where can he or she find additional resources?

Arranged in two sections, this book first gives you the basics of being an effective helper. Then it informs you on the different struggles of teenagers. It includes a list of Scripture verses relevant to each of the thirty-six topics covered, plus Web addresses of organizations that deal with specific problems.

Helping Your Struggling Teenager organizes and condenses insights and guidance for concerned parents into one extremely useful volume. Keep it at arm’s reach for the answers you need, right when you need them.
