How much independence should parents allow teenagers who claim rights and privileges, show excessive confidence and test the boundaries of discipline? Why do they alternate between maturity and immaturity? How can parents handle the physical and emotional changes in their adolescent child?
This book provides practical and sensitive support for parents to help them relate to and communicate with their child at a difficult time of transition. It offers helpful advice on managing conflict and addresses difficult issues, such as bullying, stealing, smoking and eating disorders. Encompasing home and school life - with all the social pressures that go with it - this book offers guidance to parents supporting their child faced with the new challenges of teenage life.
