Parenting Teens For The Real World. When kids hit their teen years,
parenting takes on a whole new dimension. As they struggle toward
independence and autonomy, some dicey issues emerge. And the real
world you want them to be ready for can make you shudder - kids
today face life-and-death decisions long before they're on their
own. So what do you do? Hover over them so they won't get hurt?
Drill them so they'll do the right thing? According to Jim Fay and
Foster Cline, hovering and drilling won't prepare teens for the
real world. Because they learn responsibility like they learn
everything else: through practice. That's where love-and-logic
parenting comes in. Love means giving your teens opportunities to
be responsible and empowering them to make their own decisions.
Logic means allowing them to live with the natural consequences of
their mistakes-and showing empathy for the pain, disappointment,
and frustration they'll experience. Whether you've used the
love-and-logic approach all along, or are looking for some extra
help during adolescence, Parenting Teens with Love and Logic will
give you a fresh look at: * The difference between punishment and
consequences * How teens deal with self-esteem, control, decisions,
and consequences * How to set up situations so your teen can learn
constructive lessons about responsibility * How your kids grow from
childhood to adolescence - and how you can grow with them * The
internal and external changes your teen will go through * Parenting
"pearls" that deal with everyday struggles. When you parent with
love and logic, it's a win-win situation. You win because you'll
learn to love in a healthy way and effectively guide your teens,
without resorting to anger, threats, and power struggles that will
haunt them along the path to adulthood. And your teens win because
they'll learn responsibility and the logic of life by solving their
own problems and acquiring the tools they'll need to cope with the
real world. As a parent, you face no greater challenge - and no
greater opportunity - than to guide your children through their
teen years toward productive, happy, and responsible adulthood.
Parenting Teens with Love and Logic will help you meet that
challenge and rejoice in that opportunity.
