Parenting Beyond the Rules
Raising Teens with Confidence and Joy

In Parenting Beyond the Rules you will discover how to raise a teen according to his or her own strengths, talents, and personality type while building strong family relationships.
Parenting teens can be exasperating. It is certainly one of the most challenging seasons of parenting, isn’t it? While this can be a difficult time of transition for parents and teens, there is hope. You can parent well and build a stronger relationship even through the teen years.
