Every parent needs help in guiding their teenagers through the difficult adolescent years, when they face peer pressure, dating, alcohol, drugs, harassment, and pressure to have sex, among many issues. In this revised and updated edition of her acclaimed book, parenting educator Debra Haffner offers invaluable practical advice, sample conversations, and checklists that parents can use to talk to their teens.
The book includes: “Values Exercises” to help you identify and communicate your beliefs to your teens; “Special Issues” to advise you on discussing difficult topics such as eating disorders and date rape, and responding to your teen’s questions about your own sexual history; and “Teachable Moments” to help you recognize opportunities or entry points into a discussion of important issues.
