Item Description...
A distinguished child psychologist discusses the realities of the parent-child relationship and explains how to give teens a sense of personal responsibility by parenting in a controlled yet relaxed manner. Reprint.

Publishers Description
John Rosemond is a renowned child psychologist who has helped millions of parents learn to raise their children and remain sane. In "Teen-Proofing," now available in paperback, he tackles the challenges of raising a teenager with his trademark user-friendly, humorous, and commonsense style. Rosemond lays out a perfectly sound and logical case for recognizing the realities of the teen-parent relationship, forming the foundation, and parenting with the "Long Rope Principle." In short, the author demonstrates how Mom and Dad can avoid the pitfalls of becoming dictatorial "Control Freaks," skirt the potholes of turning into permissive "Wimps," and enjoy the freedom and rewards of parenting in a controlled (but not controlling) and relaxed manner. Teenagers, Rosemond readily admits, can be a challenge. But infusing young adults with a sense of personal responsibility, then showing them the results of good and bad choices, is a goal every parent can achieve.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Also, the best book ever  Apr 5, 2008
This book is also one of the best books I've ever read. I've read most or all of Rosemonds books and I've seen him speak at two seminars in my area. I have a 14 year old and this book was full of great information. I wish, however, that I had read this book a couple of years ago. I'm now backtracking some with him but still trying to implement the ways Rosemond says to dicipline. It has lots of relatable stories from people he talks to. I mostly thought he was talking about our family in all the different stories. A very easy read and full of wise information.
some eye opening opinions  Mar 22, 2008
I have mastered baby proofing, now I don't need it. Teen proofing? Please, I need help with that!! I only wish I had picked this up about a year ago, my younger children will benefit. There were a few principals here that really changed my way of looking at things. Number one: the difference between self esteem and self respect. That is profound, really. I had not looked at it in that way and it is really a powerful difference with the potential to impact children's lives. Second: not making a scene and trying to force the teen to do as I say, but staying calm and applying suitable consequences (that impact them and not ME) which are not necessarily immediate. The checkmate move, which I've already used is good. Finally, letting the teen have the last word, allowing them to express their anger without joining in, is effective. I have already used the phrase, "I know you hate me right now, I don't blame you at all, I'd be angry if I were you too", without feeling like I have to give in to keep my child from hating me for ever. I had already bought into the idea that too many parents spend their time "serving" their children and not making the transition in toddlerhood from servitude to a helpless infant, to "now I'm in charge and you will listen to me". He has been criticized for being a bit harsh but I think that these principals can be applied with love, and in fact, when I look back on my teen years, that's the way my parents did it.
Don't even hesitate buying this book.  Sep 18, 2007
Whether you buy this book new or used...or borrow it from the library, just read it. You will be pleasantly surprised at how much more pleasant the prospect and actual raising of your teen/s can be.

Just realizing no matter what you do or don't do, they still have minds of their priceless.

Any of his books has the same basic information and applies to all ages...yes, even grown children, spouses, friends, relatives, coworkers, and yourself.

This one simply has more age specific examples of behavior/consequences. The book more than pays for itself.

Fantastic Book  Jul 25, 2007
This is a fantastic book with great idea's. My wife and I are going to implement many if not all of the idea's that are suggested. They all seem like they will be highly effective and will handle many of the problems we are or will be facing.
Great book!  May 8, 2007
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a no-nonsense guide to effective but fair discipline. The humorous writing style also helps make it an entertaining read. I have already begun to adjust my attitude in approaching my 13 year old, and the results are good. I could live without the Christian references in the book, but the author does give a nod to other beliefs as well.
