Updated to the new 2020 paperback version!
When kids hit the teen years, parenting takes on a whole new dimension. As they struggle toward independence and autonomy, kids face life-and-death decisions long before they're on their own.
So what do you do? Hover over them so they won't get hurt? Drill them so they'll do the right thing? Jim Fay and Dr. Foster Cline believe that the only thing that will effectively prepare teens for the real world is the consistent practice of responsibility. With Love and Logic parenting, you'll learn to give your teens opportunities to make their own decisions, while also allowing them to live with the natural consequences of their mistakes and showing empathy for the pain, disappointment, and frustration they'll experience.
The teen years are challenging, but you also have an incredible opportunity: to guide your children toward and into productive, happy, and responsible adulthood.
Covering a wide range of real-life issues teens face_including divorce of their parents, ADHD, addiction, and sex, you'll receive everything you need to raise responsible teens who will find their identity and grow in maturity. Indexed for easy reference.
Now updated with new material on implementing love and logic in conversations about teens and technology, managing screen time, teens and social media, and teens and cyber-bullying.
