Overview

John Rosemond is a renowned child psychologist who has helped millions of parents learn to raise their children and remain sane. In Teen-Proofing, now available in paperback, he tackles the challenges of raising a teenager with his trademark user-friendly, humorous, and commonsense style. Rosemond lays out a perfectly sound and logical case for recognizing the realities of the teen-parent relationship, forming the foundation, and parenting with the Long Rope Principle. In short, the author demonstrates how Mom and Dad can avoid the pitfalls of becoming dictatorial Control Freaks, skirt the potholes of turning into permissive Wimps, and enjoy the freedom and rewards of parenting in a controlled (but not controlling) and relaxed manner. Teenagers, Rosemond readily admits, can be a challenge. But infusing young adults with a sense of personal responsibility, then showing them the results of good and bad choices, is a goal every parent can achieve.

    A must for any parent

    This book really helped me turn my disobedient, sneaky, underachieving, lying 13 year old around. Be encouraged, parents! It took my husband and I about a year and a half of work, prayer and constant vigilance but today she is 15 and gets good grades, has a sweet attitude and makes good decisions. We could not have done it without this book... consequences that are clear, consistent and increase with the offense are what kids really need and want, and won't damage the long-term relationship. Read about the check-mate move! It is what finally convinced her that it's easier to do the right thing than whatever fleeting reward that might come from her fickle peers.
