Parents of preteens and teens can move from scared to prepared with a new approach to parenting their adolescents. Parents of preteens intuitively know that no matter how good their kids are, there is turbulence ahead. Many feel lost and unprepared as they watch the damaging effects of culture collide with their child's growing pains and raging hormones.
For the past 35 years Mark Gregston has lived and worked with struggling teens and knows what it takes to reach them. He says, "A parent's success has little to do with either the validity of their words or their intent as messengers, it's more about how they approach their child and engage with them."
Designed for use with the DVD-based study, the handbook will explore:
- What's so different about today's culture
- Why traditional parenting no longer works
- A new model for parenting teens
Foundational and practical, Tough Guys and Drama Queens Facilitator's Handbook answers the questions that parents are asking, helping them become the parents their children need them to be.
