Got a teen or one on the way?


It is never to late to make you family better, your home happier, or your children healthier. If you are in the thick of living with a teen then you know how valuable it is to add a few extra tools to your parenting toolbox. If you have a child just heading towards the teen years then this is an awesome time to get those tools in place now. These are the last few years you'll have them in your home. It's never been more important to get them ready for the real world or to lay a firm foundation for a positive relationship with (I am quoting Charles fay here ) "the person who will one day pick your nursing home. :)


Parenting Teens with Love and Logic
(Preparing Adolescents for Responsible Adulthood)
by Foster Cline and Jim Fay
In the next couple weeks I'll be focusing on adolescents as I walk through the book shown with a group of parents. Whether it's a $5000 cell phone bill, the first car accident, a curfew violation that takes you to the police station, or the first time the sweet little boy who used to snuggle in your lap yells an obscenity at you ...or maybe just that horrible pile of clothes on the floor in their room... Love and Logic has great tools and the combined experience of thousands of parents who have walked this walk who can help.
