Bridging the Gap Between Teenagers and Parents provides guidance for improving relationships between parents and their teens. Too often, conflict between parents and teens seems impossible to resolve - neither one wants to hear the otherís point of view, and they might spend years living with feelings of anger and frustration.
This book, however, will teach parents how to repair their relationships with their teens by learning to understand them. By learning to see where their teens are coming from, parents will instill feelings of mutual respect, love, and understanding between themselves and their teens, creating a bond that will last a lifetime.
