Surviving And Enjoying Your Adolescent

Drs. Jay and Harriet Barrish view coping skills for parents as critical to the development of relationship and closeness between parent and teenager. Parents who cope are much more likely to be in charge of their own emotional reactions to what their adolescents do. Learning not to be reactive as a parent while having a sympathetic understanding of adolescent development is reviewed and allows parents to create a real and influential involvement in thier teen’s life.
