When Your Teenager Becomes the Stranger in Your House by Gregory L. Jantz, PhD

Many parents are anxious for when their children enter the teen years. It's difficult to navigate the mood swings and the hours they spend alone in their rooms. They ask the question, "What's going on with my teenager?"

Dr. Gregg Jantz has written a book to help parents during this time. If you have questions about your teenager, Dr Jantz will offer answers with practical advice in his Take-It-Home sections.

Need hope? This book may give you the glimmer.

There are ten chapters and they are stocked full of information to pull your thoughts out of despair and helplessness and into a place where you can take steps to "figure it out".

Of course, we're talking about teenagers here so there won't be one answer for all type of thing here. But the answers and advice given will go a long way.

You'll cover topics such as:

Who are you and what have you done with my child?
What's going on with your teen.
The emotional roller coasters.
The shaky connections.
Determining when you need to get professional help for your teen.
How to be a powerful parent.

Each chapter includes a Bring It Home segment that solidifies the readings. If/When you get teenagers, this book will help allay your fears.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by David C Cook Publishing.
