Publisher's Summary

"The teenage years don't have to be defined by conflict. Dial Down the Drama gives moms practical solutions grounded in neuroscience that transform the eye rolls and one-word answers into healthy relationships with their daughters. I highly recommend it." (Jack Canfield, coauthor, Chicken Soup for the Mother Daughter Soul

One moment, your daughter is fun-loving and energetic - a pleasure to be around. The next, she's sulking in silence, or worse, screaming and slamming the door. Congratulations, you're the mother of a teenage girl. 

Your daughter is on an emotional roller coaster. Responding in kind just adds fuel to the fire and erodes your relationship. Teens need a stable anchor - a mom who calmly de-escalates scenes and parents intentionally, even when her child is pushing away. 

Authored by a popular family therapist, Dial Down the Drama reveals how to reclaim your center and reconnect with your teen. It helps you: 

  • Regain perspective 
  • Break the cycle of conflict 
  • Tune in to your daughter without drowning in her drama 
  • Foster spontaneous conversations 
  • Understand the developing adolescent brain and how it influences behavior 
  • Appreciate her for who she is now - a wonderful work in progress 
  • Replace worrying and overreacting with effective communication and action 
  • Forge a healthy and lasting bond together

Moodiness, anger, and defiance can stress the best of us. This empowering guide gives you the tools you need to defuse the drama - and dial up the joy.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
