Have a Teen At Home? Check Out: Surviving Your Adolescents

I know that I want to be the best parent I can be to Broxton... Yes, I want him to like me.. but I am not going to compromise parenting to do so... I will try my best to not be a "helicopter parent" but I will be trying to help guide him into making the right decisions... There will be failure along the way, we all know life is not perfect, but I will praise him for things that deserve so!
I was excited to get the book, Surviving Your Adolescents How to Manage and Let Go Of Your 13-18 Year Olds, as I want to be the best I can be...
I know I will be that mom crying when he goes to preschool soon.. and for sure I will be that parent that will be crying when he leaves for college!
Yes, we have the boys, 12 ,14 and 16... but I am not with them 24/7, so I don't think that I need to learn to "let go of them"

This book is broken down into 6 parts...
A total of 18 chapters..
Let's start and look at a cartoon image from the book:
Does this look familiar to you?

One of the best parts of this book was the two conversations..
 It had a graph that was the whole "Parent says / Kid Hears"  and when you put it all together, as the book said... It was not pretty... best of all, It reiterated the fact: "Its just a simple question to a teen, it isn't a question.. but seems more of you prying..."
From setting rules (major and minor consequences) to different dilemma's that might come up through the teen years, I really enjoyed flipping through it..
I do think that I will see if my aunt wants to check it out, as she has 2 tween / teens right now!
