Personal Developmen

The transition from childhood to adulthood is hard for both children and their parents. Communication between the two is seldom as strained as it is in this phase of a child's 'growing up'. The growing pains of adolescence can manifest in any number of ways. Kids may suddenly turn from loving, caring, cheerful beings into silent, disconnected, and distant teens. Or it may come with a new set of behavior patterns like smoking, drinking, and not respecting authority.

Often, parents face difficulties in understanding their children and their behavior at this age, making it hard to deal with troubling situations or their child's concerns in a constructive and suitable manner. The emotions involved make these situations even harder, with parents feeling helpless and frustrated with their teenagers, and teenagers feeling like they are not understood. In How To Talk So Teens Will Listen And Listen So Teens Will Talk, there is hope for both, the helpless parent and the troubled teenager.

The book talks about how parents can express their anger or irritation with their children without being hurtful and how they can respond hopefully to their teenagers' concerns, and resolve conflicts peacefully and constructively. It also lists skills that can encourage teens to cooperate with parents and assume responsibility, and how parents can use small opportunities to talk about sex and drugs. How To Talk So Teens Will Listen And Listen So Teens Will Talk is also invaluable to teenagers, listing details of other children with similar worries, skills for getting along better with friends and family, and respectful ways to voice concerns with their parents.

How To Talk So Teens Will Listen And Listen So Teens Will Talk is based on the many workshops the authors have conducted on the subject of communicating with teenagers.
