When kids hit their teen years, parenting takes on a whole new dimension. As they struggle toward independence and autonomy, some dicey issues emerge. And the real world you want them to be ready for can make you shudder - kids today 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? According to Jim Fay and Foster Cline (Parenting With Love and Logic: Teaching Children Responsibility
), hovering and drilling won't prepare teens for the real world. Because they learn responsibility like they learn everything else: through practice.
As a parent, you face no greater challenge - and no greater opportunity - than to guide your children through their teen years toward productive, happy, and responsible adulthood. Parenting Teens with Love and Logic
will help you meet that challenge and rejoice in that opportunity.
