This new adolescence demands more of us as mothers & fathers. This guide provides the supportive parental strategies you need in order to understand & cope with your child's individual struggles. For each type of troubled adolescent behavior, it provides a real-life case study, the family dynamics that contribute to the family's crisis, & specific dialogues that parents can use when talking to their teenagers.
