You cannot reason with someone who is being unreasonable.

It's more effective to reward your child for being "good" (appropriate) than to punish him for being "bad" (inappropriate).

Children today are under enormous pressures rarely experienced by their parents or grandparents. Many of today's children are being enticed to grow up too quickly and are encountering challenges for which they are totally unprepared.

If you are headed in the wrong direction as a parent - you are allowed to make a U-turn.

"Moody" and "unpredictable" are adjectives parents will often use when referring to their teenagers.

Parenting style matters - a lot!

Parenting a Teen Without Losing Your Mind

This sanity-saving workshop explores the bewildering years of a teenager. What forces turn many delightful, talkative 11 year olds into moody, hormone-infused, self absorbed teenagers? What forces lead some of them “over the edge” into choices that include drugs, sex, booze, skipping school and crime? This workshop presents a philosophy and strategies that can help parents help their teens make the right choices. (formally “Teens in Trouble”).(6 hours)
