Over the years, I’ve heard many a parent exclaim (when in the midst of a trying, difficult, or broken relationship with a teenager), “I’ve had it up to here”—and their flattened palm waves high overhead. I’ve come to think this comment misses the mark completely. More likely, they have run out of options. So, they keeping doing the same things over and over and expecting better results. In “Becoming a Mean, Teen Parenting Machine,” Wirig provides numerous techniques, steps, actions, and strategies plus powerful explanations and examples to help parents build mutual trust, show love and not just say love, and deal with the challenges of technology, anxiety, withdrawal, and anger to name a few. When parents have more tools and options, they increase their odds of having a healthy relationship with their teens.
