Sacred Refuge: Why and How to Make a Retreat by Thomas M. Santa

There are no magic potions for being a parent of teens. And the Saso's don't claim to offer one. Rather, they suggest understanding the time period of adolescence while looking for ways to share more face-to-face time with their teens. A section on setting limits reminds parents of the many ways their teens do want them to continue providing positive boundaries that offer them a cocoon of safety. Essays on caring encourage parents to engage teens in day-to-day opportunities for positive interaction and relationships. It's all about T.L.C.--time, limits, and caring.

From the best selling authors of 10 Best Gifts for Your Teen, here's another breath of fresh air for parents of teens. Patt and Steve Saso acknowledge that parenting teens can be complex and frustrating. But they invite us to worry less and stay cool during the thunder years by focusing on time, limits, and caring, or T.L.C. You'll find help, hope, and plenty of good humor on nearly 30 diverse topics.
