“Teenagers are in the midst of an incredible adventure of the soul that forms the foundation of their adulthood.”
The teenage years can be challenging time, but family therapist Jeanne Meijs sees the teenage years as a journey along a path, a journey that parents and teenagers can travel together. This book helps parents to understand that journey and shows how to support their teenage children along the way.
As the relationship between parents and teenagers changes and develops, it can feel as if the child is rejecting all usual forms of love and care. Meijs explores how to find new kinds of love encourages parents to recall and examine their own teenage years and how that time affects their approach to their children's teen years.
The book includes sections on teenage excesses; approaches to passivity and boredom in teens; sexuality; difficult behavior (including addiction); teenagers and technology; and issues surrounding divorce.
You and Your Teenager is a considered overview of teen years and a thoroughly practical, down-to-earth book from which parents can draw strength, inspiration and guidance.
