Dealing with Teens in the Crazy World
Tough Guys and Drama Queens, by Mark Gregston, is a very good guide to parenting teenagers. We’ve all been teens and know what it’s like to deal with parents. But once we have teens of our own, we kind of forget how we felt back then. We don’t want to lose control so maybe we over control or let go of the control completely. Neither works. Gregston lives with about 60 troubled teens from around the country. His program, Heartlight, is a residential counseling center in Texas. Living with and dealing with teens and their problems 24/7 is difficult work but he can report many, many success stories and few failures. So this man knows what he’s talking about I recommend this book to any parent who has a teen or a child headed that way.
