Summary

Summary

Pragmatic in its approach, the book examines ways for parents to build more harmonious relationships with their teenager, providing an overview of adolescence and an in-depth look at different approaches towards parenting teens. Solutions are offered to common sources of conflict and a broad range of issues is discussed, from depression, self-esteem and communication to sibling rivalry and parental break-up. Fuller's comments are insightful, his approach is straightforward and his style engaging. Combined, this makes Raising Real People the ideal parent's guide to adolescence. The book is divided into eight chapters with 38 single page, full color, magazine style sections examining specific issues associated with adolescence throughout the text.
