ABOUT "HAVE A NEW TEENAGER BY FRIDAY"
Beloved Psychologist and Best-Selling Author Of "Have a New Kid by Friday" and "The Birth Order Book," Dr. Kevin Leman Takes On His Toughest Project Yet-Your Teenager.
Does your teenager seem to not care about important things? Is "whatever" the only word out of her mouth? Is your son locked away in his room most of the time? Does your daughter throw a fit when you won't let her go shopping with friends? Does your son take the keys to the family car after you've told him no?
Raising a teenager today is one of the most challenging seasons for parents because many teens believe they're entitled. They expect you to give them what they want simply because they know you will. And parents fall for it. But with the advice of Dr. Kevin Leman, internationally known psychologist, humorist, and award-winning author of 40 best-selling titles on marriage and family issues, you won't have to.
"Have a New Teenager by Friday" is a simple game plan guaranteed to help parents transform their "whatever generation" teenagers, change their behaviors, and create a low-stress environment that all will be happy to call "home."
With Dr. Leman's signature wit and encouragement, "Have a New Teenager by Friday" provides parents with the keys to relational success-revealing the secrets of how to think, talk, and communicate differently during these critical years-in order to capture their teenagers hearts for a lifetime.
The plan of action for the week includes:
On Monday - Why your teen seems different overnight-and how you can adjust to your new life together.
On Tuesday - The best way to get past the crossed arms, the grunt, and the staring out the car window to communicate with your seemingly dismissive teen.
