Surviving your Teenager


Something happens when they hit that magic age 13. Hormones, brain restructuring, friends, and new expectations by school and society all come together to make a 'lively' phase of life. Often this can be a traumatic time for both you as parents and your teenage son or daughter. So, if it seems that the fights and defiance will never end, what is a mom or dad to do?

Surprisingly, the same strategies that work for pre-teens do actually work for teenagers as well. But the actual tactics do have to be adapted a bit.

My book is primarily intended for parents of children aged 4 to 12. However, I have had countless parents tell me how well it has worked with their out-of-control teenager. Yes, they had to adapt the tactics somewhat (you can't exactly use a time-out chair for a 16 year old!) But once you understand the principles and the overal strategies, that is not difficult to do.

So if you are struggling with your teenager, why not give The GOOD CHILD Guide a go. After all, it has a full money-back guarantee, so there is no risk. And if you don't do something different, most likely the current problems are only going to continue, or even get worse.

In the meantime, here are some articles on handling teenage behavior problems.  For more,  why not sign up for my free newsletter and I will also send you a free one-hour audio interview all about managing child behaviors?

Reader’s Question: My daughter, Tina, is nearly fifteen.

She is deeply unhappy with school, she argues with her teachers and feels that they don’t treat her as an equal, but has a really good nucleus of friends who also truant for the same reasons. I have taken her to the doctors who say that she is going through a time of readjustment having relocated away from many of our family and friends, but only 40 miles, they still see everyone regularly and on much happier terms than they used to be.

My dilemma is that I need my daughter to be happy as she will never achieve anything if she is so unhappy. I physically can not get her out of bed most mornings. She will say she is unwell, headache, tummy ache etc and when I try to encourage her she really doesn’t seem to care. This is affecting so many aspects of our life as I end up late for work trying to talk to her. I’ve looked at her diet and eating habits etc etc.
