The transition from childhood to adulthood is difficult for everyone. Physical changes during adolescence, whether external or internal, cause many ups and downs. These years are not always fun, but if you are a parent of a teenager or an educator, keep hope: there is a way out!
Gary Chapman, the beloved author of Languages of love raised two children and experienced the roller coaster of adolescence first-hand. In this book, he has combined the experience and wisdom of the parent with his expertise as a counselor, to help you see more clearly. You will learn among other things in this book:
- that adolescents are still developing their ability to think logically;
- that adolescents need to learn to apologize and forgive;
- and finally, that the example parents set is much more important than their words.
Raising a teenager will certainly take a lot of energy, but Gary Chapman's advice will help you navigate this difficult but also rewarding stage of life.
