Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0863159990, Paperback)'Teenagers are in the midst of an incredible adventure of the soul that forms the foundation of their adulthood.' The teenage years can be challenging time, but family therapist Jeanne Meijs sees teenagehood as a journey along a path, a journey that parents and teenagers can travel together. This books helps parents to understand the journey, and how to support their child along the way. As the relationship between parents and teenagers changes and develops, it can feel as if the child is rejecting all usual forms of love and care. Meijs explores how to find new kinds of love, as well as encouraging parents to examine their own teenage years and how that time affects their approach to their own children's teenagehood. The book includes sections on teenage excess, approaches to passivity and boredom in teens, sexuality, difficult behaviour (including addiction), being a teenager in a digital age, and issues that arise from divorce. You and Your Teenager is both a considered overview of teenagehood, and a thoroughly practical and down-to-earth book from which parents can draw strength, inspiration and guidance.
