You Can Say No to Your Teenager: And Other Strategies for Effective Parenting in the 1990s

Jeanette Shalov, Author, Doug Thrope, With, Phyllis S. Steinbrecher, With Addison Wesley Publishing Company $18 (224p) ISBN 978-0-201-57002-1
The joys and perplexities of parenting adolescents are explored in case studies from a group of psychologists and counselors who practice in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The scenarios presented illustrate the central, unchanging challenge to parents of teenagers: providing stability while encouraging independence. Particular attention is also given to the special conditions of the '90s, such as single-parent or blended families, that especially demand of parents the ability to say no appropriately and lovingly. The authors emphasize the importance of parents transmitting values, the common thread among all issues facing POAs (parents of adolescents). Looking beyond behavior to meaning is the significant advice of this realistic guide. (Feb.)
