Publisher's Summary

Have you noticed that your sweet little son has become rebellious and impossible to manage? Is it becoming increasingly difficult to reach an agreement and every misunderstanding turns into a fight? Do you just not know what is going on with your teenager? Do you wish they would confide in you more? Where has the family life gone? Do you want to get a sense of closeness and calm back into your home? 

Don't be scared, your son is becoming a teenager. 

Like any parent, you find it hard to accept that your little baby is growing so fast. Until a few years ago, you were able to keep him under control, and he was the most obedient child in the world. But lately, you've started to notice changes. He has changed his way of dressing, he wants to look bigger to impress his friends, and he no longer respects the rules of the house.

I want to reassure you - your child has no problem at all. He is only undergoing a series of changes - both physical and mental - that can confuse him and find him unprepared. His behavior is only his way of reacting to these changes.

Your role is essential at this stage in his life. You have the task of guiding him and directing him to the right path, otherwise it could assume attitudes that could create problems in the future. The choices that are made during adolescence will affect his whole life.

If you now feel worried and bewildered, this audiobook is what you need. Whether you have a teen who is struggling with exam pressure, a young adult who hasn’t settled into university life, or you are curious about what lies ahead for your younger child, this audiobook will help you to build your child's confidence and resilience, so they can become a strong, happy, and independent adult.

In this book, the author reveals what exactly people need to do to help teenagers and young adults in this new world and how to manage problems along the way.

It includes: 

  • An overview of the pressures and problems facing this generation of young people - why are they increasingly stressed, anxious, or suffering from mental health issues
  • Things that parents can do to help their teens and young adults become healthily independent, navigate challenges, and flourish in preparation for adult life
  • Ways how pastoral care at universities and workplaces is changing and what a parent’s role could and should be
  • Ways to recognize the signs of mental health distress and what to do about it, particularly dealing with problems from a distance

In this audiobook, book you will discover:

  • How to improve your relationship with your teenager.
  • How to develop a better honest connection with your teenager.
  • What is the best way to teach your teenager about useful life skills
  • How to raise a responsible teenager
  • What are the challenges you'll faces when you talk to a teenager
  • What are some tips for communicating with your teen
  • What are the four secret methods of talking to a teenager
  • How to develop relationship skills in teenagers
  • How to motivate teenagers
  • And much more!

This is not only a theoretical book; inside this book you will find practical situations of daily life with the right method to deal with them.

Google Translate

The English and sentence structure is awful. I think this was well wrote book in a different language. Maybe someone ran it through Google Translate and sent it off to the notation contractor with out review.

Content fair, narrator terrible

I got a few things out of this book, but it is very hard to follow at least the audio book. Many of the metaphors were hard to understand how they relate. In chapter 3 (where I am now) the narrator does not read well - runs on, pauses where a pause should not be. Hard to follow.

These must be fake reviews. Horrible narration,

It's like its and unfinished rough draft. You can hear the narrator struggling to read it it. Couldn't make it past chapter 2.

Torture!

I cannot fully review this book as I haven’t been able to get past the first chapter. I am so disappointed after all the 5 star reviews. Perhaps this is an English/American thing but the narrator sounded like a robot on speed! It was like a character off of family guy; it felt like what he was saying was a joke! I wanted to concentrate on the content but I just couldn’t. The voice was like a battering ram to my ears. Just couldn’t cope. I should have listened to the sample!

Awful narrating

The voice is too robotic and doesn’t flow at all. This makes it impossible to follow this book unfortunately. Had to give up in the first 5 minutes sadly

Robotic reading and badly proof read.

There is some good content but let down by how it is delivered with sentences that just don't make sense. Poor value.

strange narration

This book has some good points better maybe to actually read it because the narration is really strange, the sentences do not always appear to make sense it's as though it has gone through a computer text to speach system which doesn't always choose the correct word. wierd.

Too American

There are nuggets of useful info here but I wasn't keen on the narration. I found it a little too 'American' and wouldn't use a lot of the dialect suggested.
