Parenting Teens: When Books, DVD’s and Therapy isn’t Working

Don't be a parent in denial.

Your teen or tween is starting to act in ways that are foreign to you.  Whether they are hanging with peers that are less than desirable or starting to fail in school when you know they are more than capable.  They are underachieving, they are good kids making some bad choices and slowly escalating into a person you barely recognize.

Defiance is the tone of your home, and disrespect has become second nature.

First you try therapy or counseling, there has to be something physically wrong.  In most cases, that is not the story.  There usually isn’t a pill to fix a teen that is spiraling out-of-control.

During these therapy sessions, you are gathering and reading as many parenting teen books as possible!  Now you find a DVD that makes promises to turn your teen around in 30 days?!  Really?  Some books are excellent – seriously really good – and can help YOU cope, but what about your teen?  Is it resolving these deeply root issues that are causing this negative behavior pattern?

When books don't help....

No matter – you are desperate and willing to try whatever it takes.  As a responsible parent this is what we have to do.  However don’t allow your emotions to take over as they did in my story.

Are you at your wit’s end?  Even read my book – “Wit’s End!” – but still wondering how to move forward.  Visit www.HelpYourTeens.com and find out more.
