Description

Parenting teenagers can be tricky at the best of times. But when the tough issues arise — behavioural problems, unacceptable risk-taking, bullying, alcohol abuse — things can get extremely difficult and parents can struggle with what to do. Drawing on psychologist Michael Hawton’s 30 years of experience, Engaging Adolescents is a practical guide to help you steer your teenager through the challenging times with confidence.

From helping teenagers develop personal control to preventing yourself from overreacting; from what we can learn from watching professionals deal with emergencies to practical methods for managing tempestuous teenagers, Engaging Adolescents gives a solid foundation to the multi-layered process of abating disruptive behaviour in teenagers. Learn how to adapt to a variety of situations, to maintain a calm composure, and to best help your child to express themselves and discuss their issues constructively.

Using case studies and based on universally-accepted mediation principles, this is a highly practical, skills-based book that gives you the tools to resolve conflict and build better family relationships. Hawton’s advice is honest and open-minded, building on his own parenting successes and failures. Engaging Adolescents offers a clear, method-based approach to ease the distress of parents experiencing difficulties with their teenagers’ behaviour.
