Does it sometimes seem like your teenager is trying to push you over the edge? In this essential survival guide, psychologist and parenting expert Carl Pickhardt helps parents anticipate common developmental challenges and gives them the skills to help their children through the sometimes difficult teenage years.
In Surviving Your Child's Adolescence, Pickhardt presents a dynamic four-stage model of adolescent growth from early adolescence to trial independence and provides practical strategies for guiding children to adulthood, including dealing with arguing, chores, messy rooms, homework, and other common issues that drive parents and their teens crazy. Pickhardt also includes advice for teaching young people effective communication techniques, engaging in constructive conflict, and employing responsible decision-making approaches, as well as guidelines for protecting teens from the dangers of the Internet, bullying, dating, and substance abuse.
