A Survival Guide to Parenting Teens: Talking to Your Kids About Sexting, Drinking, Drugs, and Other Things That Freak You Out


There’s a strange new creature living under your roof…

There are 43 million teens and tweens living in the United States.  How will parents raise them to be happy, healthy and successful individuals amid the challenges and distractions?  Parenting a teen poses more danger and opportunities than when today’s parent was a teen 20-30 years ago.

From lying, hanging with a bad crowd, spending too much time online, and falling grades, the teenage years can be an uphill battle.  Joani Geltman’s book is the no-nonsense guide you need to get your teen talking, listening, and acting appropriately. Geltman covers many areas of concern for those raising teenagers in today’s hyper-sexual, super-social, non-stop digital environment.

Cutting through teen drama and parental confusion, A SURVIVAL GUIDE TO PARENTING TEENS delivers fast answers and targeted solutions to dozens of behaviors that drive parents nuts, with insightful analysis of what your teen is really thinking and feeling, along with smart, effective advice on what you should say and do in response.  By acting quickly, calmly, and knowledgeably, you can halt your teen’s spiral, open up the lines of communication, and get them back into a positive, responsible, and respectful place.
