Hope for Parents of Troubled Teens by Connie Rae Bethany House, 2012
It is never too late for parents to reach their teenager or young adult. Connie Rae, a counsellor who works with families and youth at risk, draws from professional and personal experience to provide insight, encouragement and advice.
Drawing from her own experience with a son who has struggled with drug addiction, she helps parents better understand their child’s temperament, their own parenting style, and the development process their child is going through.
She also discussed the world in which their child is growing up, and issues facing teenagers such as drugs, peer pressure, sexuality and communications. Each chapter ends with a list of practical steps and a prayer, giving parents advice but also offering hope through the process.
