Getting Your Teen Through High School and Beyond is a guide for parents that educates them about most of the possible challenges their teen will face in high school (and college). This book offers parents structure and scripts for situations such as: car use, setting a curfew, love and sex, participation in sports, coming of age rituals, computer and cell phone use, sibling rivalry, how to fit in if you don’t use drugs and alcohol, and what to do when your young adult abuses alcohol or other substances, and may also have a mental health issue. A variety of contracts based on family values are provided so teens will know the expectations and the consequences for choosing not to follow the guidelines.
FIVE THINGS PARENTS OF TEENS NEED TO KNOW
- Your teen does NOT know how to get himself/herself through middle school, high school or college.
- Teens have no way to predict what’s around the corner.
- Drugs/alcohol will hurt the development of your child’s brain.
- Serious mental disorders can be triggered by the use of drugs/alcohol during the teenage years, even the use of marijuana.
- The word “NO” does NOT mean “maybe”.
