Be a Parent Not a Push Over

Be a Parent Not a Push Over“Because I Said So” Only Gets You So Far  
 Be a Parent, Not a Pushover 
Driver’s Licenses. After Prom Parties. Dating. Too many parents are pulling their hair out, having shouting matches, or spoiling their children to keep peace in the home. Some parents find it easier to ignore the problem - causing irreversible damage to the family unit and to the social development of the teenager.
Be A Parent, Not A Pushover by Dr. Maryann Rosenthal helps parents navigate those difficult years when children are simultaneously pulling away and needing parentalguidance, structure, and love.

Using helpful examples, Rosenthal discusses a five-step program (A-D-U-L-T) for breaking down barriers between parents and children:

Awareness of How You Communicate
Direction: Giving Teens What They Need
Uniqueness: Knowing What Makes Your Teen Special
Love – or the Magic of Real
Teaching: Sharing What You Believe
Parents can use the ADULT program to help teens set and reach goals, shed stress, and develop strong character. It also serves as guide for parents on how to understand what physical changes within the teen cause behavioral issues.
