Walt Mueller's new book, 99 Thoughts for Parents of Teenagers, looks to be a helpful guide for parents of teens and those who work with this age group.
I appreciate Mueller's honesty as he gives the reason for writing this little book:
Once upon a time, I was the perfect parent—and then I got married and had kids. As time went on and our kids grew, I learned more and more about the realities of being a parent. I also realized how much I didn’t know. I know I’m not alone. It’s out of these realizations, my 27 years of experience as a parent of four kids (15 of those years spent parenting teenagers), and my years of work with parents and teenagers through the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (cpyu .org) that this little book has been birthed.
