The Parenting Advice Book for Parents of Teens!
The funny thing I’ve found about parenting is that my parents were much wiser than I originally thought. At the beginning phases of creating this book, I still considered my parents to be a bit cuckoo. Of course, most kids think their parents are “crazy old people”. By the time I got to the end of writing this book, I realized that nothing was wrong with them. They were just doing what they thought was the best thing at that given moment. As parents, what are we trying to constantly figure out? The best thing to do for the long term and for the moment!
So, let’s get one thing out of the way-the legal stuff. Let me start by giving a disclaimer:
I am NOT a psychologist, therapist, counselor or licensed professional in this area. I’m a person who has kids, works with kids, teaches kids, has helped others raise their kids and has taken notes on how people raise their kids. I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t.
This book is a collection of facts, opinions and ideas for parents. They are not guaranteed to work (there is no hard and fast rule for parenting besides love)!
This book is intended to give you insight and inspiration on how to deal with common issues in the parent-child relationship. It’s for use at your own discretion and your own risk.
This book is for parents who are in need of new ways to approach a problem, there are lots of ways in this book.
Long story short, I hope you find a method included in the pages of this book that helps you raise your child, but there’s a chance (pretty slim if you ask me) that none of the ideas mentioned work. Keep in mind, all kids are different. What works wonders for one may not work at all for another.
So why did I write this book? I’m a former public school teacher and college professor who has taught children and adults math from 6th grade up. I’ve watched children grow up and saw what parenting choices can cause, because I’ve taught the same child at 6th grade, in high school and again in college. I’ve mentored and monitored quite a few children from child to adult. I’ve seen them grow and prosper, I’ve seen them regress and decline. As a mom and a teacher I want to pass on priceless information (in plain English) that may make all the difference in raising your child. I can’t say it’ll all work out perfectly or that it’ll work out overnight, but I can give you the hope of having tools that may help you navigate some of the waters of parenthood.
