How can families keep their connections strong when adolescence transforms even the happiest kids into defiant, independent teenagers? In the sage, practical Staying Connected to Your Teenager, family psychologist Riera reveals that in every teen there are two very different people. Many parents and guardians see only the moody, rebellious child and can miss seeing the more agreeable, increasingly adult thinker in their home. With helpful strategies for promoting real, rich conversations (whether in person, by text, or online); moving from a "managing" to a "consulting" role in a teen's life; working with adolescent sleep rhythms; and more, Staying Connected to Your Teenager shows how to bring out the best in a teen-and, consequently, in an entire family.
