Every parent of a teenager knows about teenage behaviour† the arguments, the rudeness, the untidiness, treating parents as servants and so on. It is all very frustrating, very pointless and terribly time consuming.
This book takes as its premise the idea that any parent can change a teenager's behaviour for the better simply by changing his or her own behaviour in relation to that teenager, so that the teenager responds to a different set of stimuli.
Teenagers. Their discipline and Behaviour deals with the way parents bring up their teenage children. It considers behaviour patterns, morality and the like in teenagers - and its strong message is that it is part of the job of parents to help their teenage children behave in socially acceptable ways.
Topics covered include definitions of good behaviour, how to make your teenager better behaved, setting the rules, rewards and bribes, discipline, punishment and love, bullying, peer group pressure, and the special behavioural problem of ADD.
