Today more than ever, parenting teenagers can be an enormous challenge. It has always been normal for teens to explore their freedom and independence, and to redefine the ways in which they relate to their parents. But in this world of social networks and constant digital distraction, these effects can be magnified even further, and it's easy for parents to feel powerless or excluded from their children's lives. Positive Discipline for Teenagers shows parents how to build stronger bridges of communication with their children, break the destructive cycles of guilt and blame that occur in parent-teen power struggles, and work toward greater mutual respect with their adolescents. The key is understanding that teens still need their parents, just in different ways and by better understanding who their teens really are, parents can learn to encourage both their teens and themselves, and instil good judgement without being judgmental.
