Parenting Expert Carl Pickhardt Shows How the Bonds Between Fathers and Teens Can Be Strengthened
  

Many fathers feel unprepared for their child's adolescence, in their denial, often times preferring to believe that it will only happen to other people's children. In this sensitive and forthright book, Carl Pickhardt stresses that fathers need to become informed about changes and challenges that normally unfold. Helping caring fathers navigate the four crucial and often perplexing stages of adolescence, The Connected Father describes:

* how fathers can learn to be better listeners

* why they have trouble communicating and what to do about it

* different emotional changes between mid- and late-adolescence

* how to encourage independence while setting limits

* how fathers can talk to teens about drugs, sex, the internet, relationships, and more

Synopsis:

Most parents--and fathers in particular--are woefully unprepared for their child's adolescence which, in their denial, they believe won't happen, or will only happen to other people's children. Noted parenting expert Carl Pickhardt believes that since all children have to grow through this transformation, fathers need to become informed about changes and challenges that normally unfold. This book provides caring fathers with ways to stay involved as children grow through four predictable stages of adolescence into adulthood. It describes:
* how fathers can learn to be better listeners
* why fathers have trouble communicating
* different emotional changes between mid- and late-adolescence
* how to encourage independence while setting limits
* how to talk to teens about drugs, peer pressure, abusive relationships, and more
Pickhardt offers universal tips for fathers, helping them realize their unique roles in supporting and guiding children through "the hard half of parenting" - the teen years. 

Synopsis:

A modern guide on how to become--and remain--an involved and influential father during the adolescent passage
