"Uncommon Sense for Parenting Tweens and Teens", Dr. Michael Riera
Teenagers are complex, but are they impossible to understand? No! says Michael Riera, Ph.D., one of the country's top experts on teen behavior.  Spend an enlightening evening with Dr. Riera and you'll learn how to translate what those tweens and teens mean (but can't say) by their behaviors and attitudes. You'll gain insight into ways to give your growing child appropriate freedom, shifting your role from manager to consultant. You'll be reminded not to take their negative behaviors personally and to enjoy this beautiful (and sometimes frustrating) phase of family life. And you'll learn how parenting and discipline can help children develop integrity, influencing them in the areas of their life that matter most.
Based on his 19 years as a teacher, counselor, dean of students, and parent, Riera recommends some unexpectedâÂ"and ultimately successfulâÂ"approaches, like "Communicate indirectly," "Let your teenager brood," and "Resist giving advice, even when your teenager asks for it." Riera's fresh and un-patronizing approach to teenagers offers both practical tools and a beacon of optimism and hope for harried parents everywhere.
Dr. Riera is the author of three books: Uncommon Sense for Parents of Teenagers, Staying Connected to Your Teenager:  How to Keep Them Talking to You and How to Hear What They're Really Saying,and Right from Wrong:  Instilling a Sense of Integrity in Your Child. He has gained national attention with appearances on "The CBS Saturday Early Show" and "Family Talk with Dr. Mike" on Sirius Radio. Riera is Head of School at the Redwood Day School in Oakland, California.
