This week's Q of the Week:  14, first girlfriend, failing math....

FIND ALL OF JEAN'S GOOD ADVICE AND INSIGHTS ABOUT PARENTING TEENS AND PRETEENS IN HER NEW BOOK! And thanks to the many site visitors whose questions and comments helped me create this book. [Tip: go HERE first for a DISCOUNT.]

Please let your friends know that Jean's book is finally here!

Parenting teens and preteens has never been easy. It may seem harder today in this too-much-information-and-everything-else age, but the basic principles haven't changed. It's a balancing act: allowing more freedom while maintaining limits that you hope help them live long enough to become their own persons.

Both parents and teens find help in these pages in understanding and managing each other during these adolescent years--years that can be both exhilirating and daunting.

Licensed Clinical Social Workers (Jean and Karen) select questions from those who write in and post the answers at Questions of the Week and then add these to the Archives. You'll find Q&As there on most every topic--teenage attitude, chores, grades, peer problems, sex, drugs, and many more; they're searchable.

You'll also find Polls for parents and teens, book reviews, a video for parents, links to other useful web sites, info on finding mental health help, and a directory of therapists.

Comments from site visitors: 
"I just wanted to thank you for responding to my question about my 11.8 yr old son and the issues of pornography watching. . . As my husband and I read your response we were in awe at how you hit the nail on the button.  It was as if you were in our  home or really knew our son."  

Coming across this website has been a lifesaver, it really has helped me organize my thoughts.. thank you.. - Teen
