You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

“Parenting Teens: Challenges, Trials and Triumphs” - Sunday September 29, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

This week's guest: John Webber, MA

Adolescence is all about individuation and separation from parents. It's a tricky time. It's important to balance all the needs that your teens has—you need to set limits and reinforce boundaries while allowing your teen to make choices and learn from his mistakes. You need to keep your teen safe while supporting her independence and mastery of life skills. And, you need to do all this while dealing with a child that rolls her eyes when you say something wise, pushes the boundaries on a regular basis, does stupid things from time to time, and rejects you every time you suggest you go out and see a movie together on a Saturday night.

Join me and my guest John Webber, MA as we discuss the challenges, trials and triumphs that come with the unique relationship that exist between parents and adolescents. We both bring professional and personal experience and would love to have you join the conversation.  Whether you are a parent of a teen, a teen yourself, or remember your own rite of passage, we want to hear from you! 

All perspectives count. There are wonderful things about parenting teens and there are many challenges. This is an exciting, scary, and difficult time for children as they make the transition from child to adult. We can learn all learn from each other. So let's get started.

See you Sunday!
