A parenting guide to adolescence - a sensible and considerate resource for navigating your teen to adulthood, transforming a traditional time of strife into an opportunity for positive growth for both you and your child. For parents, nurturing their teens to become healthy, well-adjusted adults seems more challenging now than ever before. There are many pressures for kids to grow up faster than they should. Here, renowned adolescent medicine specialist Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D., and award-winning journalist Susan FitzGerald offer parents a practical, thoughtful strategy for guiding children through all the turning points on the way to adulthood - the "whens" and "hows" of adolescence. Letting Go with Live and Confidence helps parents achieve five goals: Manage Their Own Emotions. Many parents are conflicted about their teens growing up. The desire to keep things the way they've always been may get in the way of wise parental decisions. This book addresses the emotional turmoil that surrounds letting go, and urges parents to care for themselves, so they can better care for their children. Reduce Conflict Around the Whens. It's the everyday "When can I?" questions that trigger many struggles. Parents will learn to turn potential sources of conflict into opportunities for growth as they consider 18 scenarios, including When is my child ready to stay home alone? Get a cell phone? Manage money? Date? Drive? Minimize Anxiety Over the Hows. Certain subjects are tough to talk about and the stakes in these conversations are high. How in the world do you talk about sex? Drugs? Peer pressure? Parents will learn how to approach critical topics with honesty and clarity, increasing the chances that they'll actually be heard. Gain Confidence To Make the Right Decisions. Parents reading this book will be better prepared to make decisions because they'll have a strategy to apply to each situation and gain new insight into their child's developmental needs. Understand That Nurturing Independence Is An Act of Love. The ultimate goal of parenting is to produce a well-adjusted adult. When teens understand that their parents support their independence, they're less likely to rebel. As importantly, when independence is not a battle, families can move toward lifelong interdependence. Letting Go with Live and Confidence is filled with the latest findings on successful parenting and is infused with Dr. Ginsburg's expert advice on how to build resilience in teens. This comprehensive volume also contains stories from real parents from diverse backgrounds who have faced the challenges of raising teens. Empowering and groundbreaking, this book is a one-stop resource to parenting teens in the twenty-first century.

We feel torn between the instinct to hold on and the responsibility to let go.Loving and Letting Go offers a unique combination of the author’s perspective from two critical points in the life of her family.

Now she’s added the reflections of a mother looking back on those years with a greater understanding of this lifelong challenge. “The heart attitudes we form when our children are young often set the tone for the way we continue to live out this critical responsibility of parenting,” she claims. “That’s why letting go starts with preschoolers.”This easy-to-read, revised and expanded edition of Carol’s best-selling Learning to Let Go features new illustrations, time-tested tips, practical applications, and questions at the end of each chapter for personal reflection and/or discussion with a spouse or group. It also includes updated resources such as: General Guidelines to Letting Go 21 Practical Parenting Tips Consequences of Overprotecting Our Children Building a Firm Foundation Top Ten Ways to Love Your Child As Carol concludes, “In loving and letting go of our children, we learn greater truths that transcend parenting and help us live out our faith.” This book is a vital resource no matter where you are in the process of parenting.
