Book Description: When kids hit their teens, their character unfolds in increasingly consequential ways. Your job as a parent is far from done! During those stormy teenage years from ages 13 to 19, your child needs your help in developing traits that are vital to his or her future well-being: connection, responsibility, reality, competence, morality, and worship/spiritual life. Based on Raising Great Kids, the Raising Great Kids Workbook for Parents of Teenagers is filled with self-tests, discussion material, exercises, and practical applications that can help you turn key concepts into a natural way of parenting. Look at it as your parents' navigation guide for helping your son or daughter make the transition to adulthood safely and successfully. What Does It Take to Raise Great Kids? Conflicting opinions may leave you feeling confused. Get tough! Show acceptance. Lay down the rules. Lighten up, already. There's got to be a balance---and there is. Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend help you provide the care and acceptance that make grace real to your kids, and the firmness and discipline that give direction. At last, here is an effective middle ground for raising your children to handle life with maturity and wisdom.
