#STRESS: Parenting Teens With Love And Logic: Connecting With Your Teens In Establishing Safe Boundaries In Our Cyber World Have you ever wanted to pull out your hair over a parenting problem that seemed to require a difficult solution (if there was a solution to be had at all)? Have you ever experienced being torn between wanting to hug or discipline your own child because of something they did or said? As a parent, you might have experienced more than your fair share of bewilderment at how to raise your own children so that they turn out to be decent human beings who will be great contributors to society. And if history does repeat itself, then these feelings are or were probably particularly frequent during your child's adolescent period. With pimples sprouting everywhere, strange odors and excretions being expelled by the body, and a looming sense of confusion and frustration about one's identity, adolescence is a turbulent, sometimes traumatic time for many people. It's especially frustrating and confounding for two sets of people in particular: the adolescents themselves and their parents. And although parents were once teenagers themselves, it can be quite tough for them to remember what it was like to be awkward, moody, and confused all the time. Thus, it's common for a lot of parents and teenagers to butt heads over this lack of mutual understanding (as well as due to the crazy hormonal changes taking place in the teenager's body every minute). What's more, being a parent to a teenager in the 21st century is made all the more challenging by the widespread presence of the Internet in their child's life. For in addition to guiding their adolescent child towards navigating the tricky stage of puberty in order to become a well-adjusted person, 21st century parents also have to contend with the dangers posed by cyberspace such as the presence of pedophile predators, the apparent decline of manners and social graces, as well as plain old peer pressure and bad influences being played out on a much wider space. Thus, this book was written to guide said parents in the process of handling the aforementioned challenges of raising children in the modern age. This book's focus is all about balancing love and logic so that parents can enable their kids to conduct themselves responsibly in cyberspace, and so that they would be able to construct the necessary boundaries therein to protect themselves. Here Is A Preview Of What You Will Learn What sort of support your adolescent needs from you at this stage in his or her life, and how this differs from their needs at prior developmental stages. How to set up effective communication patterns with your teenager so that he or she will feel more open towards sharing about his or her life with you. How to prepare your child for the perils and responsibilities of using social media accounts online. What to do in case you run into familiar 21st century parenting dilemmas such as catching your teenager viewing online pornography or sending compromising photos of themselves to strangers. And much, much more! Anyone, regardless of past or present can succeed at using love and logic to raise their teenager – Today! Get Your Copy Today!

As a parent, you want practical, accurate and user friendly information to help raise your teen. You want to know what's considered normal adolescent behaviour, how to determine whether your child is on a good path, how to encourage your teen's healthy development, and how to get help when problems arise. What Parents Need to Know about Teens is an easy-to-read booklet that addresses these issues. Author David A. Wolfe is a clinical psychologist who has worked with children and teens for more than 25 years. He holds the RBC Chair in Children's Mental Health at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. In his work, Dr. Wolfe has often encountered parents who describe feeling overwhelmed with the problems their teenage children bring home, especially when some of these difficulties didn't exist when they were growing up themselves. This booklet is a response to parents' concerns. Written in chatty, down-to-earth language, What Parents Need to Know about Teens addresses the facts and myths of teen life and teens' relationships with parents. The booklet focuses on strategies to help parents prepare teens for new responsibilities and the pressures that may accompany them. Each section of the booklet is devoted to a different parenting strategy: 1. Be an effective parent: Balance sensitivity and firmness. 2. Place an emphasis on safety, responsibility and obeying rules. 3. Teach-don't just criticize. 4. Understand your teen's development-and how it affects your relationship. 5. Understand the pressures-and the risks-your teen faces.

Decades of research have demonstrated that the parent-child dyad and the environment of the familyâ€"which includes all primary caregiversâ€"are at the foundation of children's well- being and healthy development. From birth, children are learning and rely on parents and the other caregivers in their lives to protect and care for them. The impact of parents may never be greater than during the earliest years of life, when a child's brain is rapidly developing and when nearly all of her or his experiences are created and shaped by parents and the family environment. Parents help children build and refine their knowledge and skills, charting a trajectory for their health and well-being during childhood and beyond. The experience of parenting also impacts parents themselves. For instance, parenting can enrich and give focus to parents' lives; generate stress or calm; and create any number of emotions, including feelings of happiness, sadness, fulfillment, and anger. Parenting of young children today takes place in the context of significant ongoing developments. These include: a rapidly growing body of science on early childhood, increases in funding for programs and services for families, changing demographics of the U.S. population, and greater diversity of family structure. Additionally, parenting is increasingly being shaped by technology and increased access to information about parenting. Parenting Matters identifies parenting knowledge, attitudes, and practices associated with positive developmental outcomes in children ages 0-8; universal/preventive and targeted strategies used in a variety of settings that have been effective with parents of young children and that support the identified knowledge, attitudes, and practices; and barriers to and facilitators for parents' use of practices that lead to healthy child outcomes as well as their participation in effective programs and services. This report makes recommendations directed at an array of stakeholders, for promoting the wide-scale adoption of effective programs and services for parents and on areas that warrant further research to inform policy and practice. It is meant to serve as a roadmap for the future of parenting policy, research, and practice in the United States.
