In order to help teenagers grow into healthy adults, parents and youth workers need to help them experience how to take responsibility for their behavior, their values, and their lives.
Dr. John Townsend, coauthor of the Gold Medallion Award-winning book Boundaries, is a parent of two teenagers himself. With wisdom and empathy, he applies his biblically based principles to bear on the challenging task of the teen years, showing parents:
How to deal with disrespectful attitudes and irresponsible behaviors in your teen;
How to set healthy limits and realistic consequences;
How to be loving and caring while establishing rules;
How to determine specific strategies to deal with problems both big and small.
The book begins by giving parents a way to look at adolescence itself, so they can better understand how a teen thinks, feels, and relates to others. Then it provides the nuts and bolts of what boundaries are all about and how to apply them. There are many topically based chapters devoted to specific problems, from moodiness to school problems to aggression. Finally, Townsend addresses the attitudes, conflicts, and difficulties of parents themselves, helping them resolve their own personal obstacles to being an effective maturing force for the teen.

Practical and Effective
Following the advice in this book will not only keep your teens on the right track, but force you to be an adult and deal with you own demons. Well worth the time and a good book to read periodically.
