The Ultimate Guide to Raising Teens and Tweens: Strategies for Unlocking Your Child’s Full Potential
This book might look thick enough to be off-putting to a busy parent, but once you crack the cover, you’ll see that each chapter is only a few pages and contains a wealth of information to help you and your tween/teen successfully navigate adolescence.
The author speaks from personal experience as a middle-school teacher and a former adolescent. There are many citations to support his claims. The narration style leans toward professorial, but the examples are realistic and engaging.
The book is divided into two parts. The first part explores “child unlimited” tools to nurture your child. The terminology refers to instilling the values and skills in your child that will grant them an adulthood of unlimited possibilities. The second part explores “child limiting” challenges that can have a harmful effect on your child. In other words, problems that are large enough to have long-lasting negative consequences that will limit the options your child can have as an adult.
This isn’t a book to unwind with at the end of the day, but for parents who are seeking effective and practical strategies to help their child through adolescence, they will surely find it in the bite-sized and encouraging chapters of this highly informative book.
