Yesterday, your child was a sweet, well-established eight-year-old. Today, there’s a moody, disrespectful 12-year-old stomping around the house. What happened? More importantly, how do you handle it? How you respond to these whirlwind changes will not only affect your child’s behaviour now but will determine how he or she turns out later.
Julie A. Ross, executive director of Parenting Horizons, shows you exactly what’s going on with your child and provides all the tools you need to correctly handle even the prickliest tween porcupine in How to Hug a Porcupine. Find out how other parents survived nightmarish tween behaviour and still raised great kids, break the “nagging cycle”, give your kids reposnsibilities and get results, talk about sex, drugs and alcohol so your tween will listen, and discover the secret that will help your child disregard peer pressure and make smart choices for life.
