Summary 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.The book covers the following areas: teenagers and what helps them develop personal control; how to sort out behaviour so you don't over react; what we can learn from watching professionals who manage emergencies; and, proven, practical methods for managing tempestuous teenagers. Using case studies and based on universally-accepted mediation principles, the book gives you the tools to resolve conflict and build better family relationships.
