This is a book for parents of teenagers.
I will put forward some issues in order to help parents think and set strategies that will make parenthood easier. The strategies I would like to share with the reader stem from over twenty years of experience as a teacher. My insight is that of a teacher who is permanently in touch with students and parents. I am not a psychologist. I am a teacher who has learned a lot from the people he becomes involved with due to his job. Thanks to these people I have a positive outlook on life and it is my purpose to transmit it to you.
This book is packed with real anecdotes and examples. Names and circumstances have been modified out of respect for those involved. In a fast-moving, complex world there is almost no time to think. We are “moving on” the best way possible, by “winging it” on a daily basis. The real problem arises when we do not know where we are moving on to. And this is the main reason why so many parents and teenagers are bewildered.
