“What You Can Learn from Your Teenager” has a 4.9 star rating on Here’s what some people are saying:
“This book takes a refreshing approach to the parent-teenager relationship. The author takes a realistic and positive approach. Instead of viewing the parent as the model, the teenager is viewed as an effective partner in the process of transitioning the relationship of parent and child as the child matures. I agree with the author’s statement, “Over time, the relationship unfolds with your child having as much influence on you as you have on him.” Instead of resisting a teen’s attitude, it is better to learn whenever possible to support and understand it.
The book discusses the basic needs and dilemmas of parents and teens, their values, discovery and exploration, boundaries and consequences, building healthy relationships between parents and teens, and how to construct healthy communication systems. In the end, parents must be able to look back on the past experiences and be prepared to let go allowing the teen to move on. Some of the most effective parts of the book are the sample conversations held between parent and teen. There is a lot of food for thought in this book; the author does a wonderful job of highlighting each chapter for the reader before moving on to the next topic.
I highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for parents, teachers and counselors of teens. The two-way street approach goes far to bridge the gap between the younger and older generation.” – Barbara Ann Mojica
“Discussing differences between value systems of a teenager and a parent could really be awkward but there’s nothing greater than connecting with your teen child and finally breaking the conventional aloof relationship every parent is dreading to deal with. Playing with them, inspiring them and putting attention to them are the highlights I a totally agree with the author. This books is the perfect guide to create a different level of understanding and relationship with your teen child. Strongly recommended book!” – Sam Frauborg
