The behaviour of teenagers has always been a concern for parents. They worry about the outbursts, the refusal to eat normal food and the general lack of courtesy. They want to know why this has happened to their son or daughter. Is it just part of normal behaviour or is there something wrong with their child? Above all they ask - does home life have to be like this?
This book gives these parents two benefits: it reassures them about the wide range of behaviour among teenagers that is commonly experienced by most households; and it offers these parents help and suggestions for ways of developing their teenager?s behaviour so that life at home becomes more pleasant. Indeed with some parents reporting that their teenage son or daughter is making life in their own home utterly unbearable, for many parents this book cannot come a moment too soon.
This volume covers many of the topics which concern parents - the use of rewards, setting and maintaining rules, handling group peer pressure, protection against bullying and so on. They will find that as they follow the advice within the book their lives, and those of their teenage children, become much more enjoyable. And they will thank the school for that!
