Those Turbulent Teen Years: Hope for Parents

by Jeenie Gordon

Paperback(Mass Market Paperback - REVISED)



Today's teens face increasingly complex problems--violence, drugs, alcohol, sex, date rape, and teen suicide, to name a few. But Jeenie Gordon urges parents to take heart: Better parenting techniques can be learned, and even the most beleaguered moms and dads can feel confident about the future.

Gordon, who has raised her own teenager and spent countless hours relating to teens as a high school counselor, has learned how best to deal with angst-ridden adolescents. In this warmly written book, she provides practical guidelines for everything from setting boundaries and making them stick to instilling responsibility.
