Crucial Insider Knowledge for Connecting and Communicating with Teens

With their incomprehensible lingo, often-bizarre fashion fixations, technological plug-ins, and ever-changing moods, teenagers can seem like an entirely different species. Connecting with them on meaningful levels–let alone actually influencing them–seems beyond the realm of possibility.

What do advertisers and entertainers who grab the attention of teenagers know that you don’t? And how can you counteract their influence in your child’s life?

Danny Holland, an expert on youth culture, peers into the world of America’s kids–and offers proven advice on how parents can adopt the tools of the experts. You’ll discover…

how today’s teenagers think, including their values, priorities, and primary influences

the communication pattern that speaks most persuasively to teens

the most effective way to improve your relationship with your teen

how to determine which battles absolutely must be won

and many other eye-opening insights

With “insider knowledge,” you’ll be equipped and empowered with real-world techniques to successfully connect and communicate with your teenager, bridging the gap to build a relationship of lasting influence.

Synopsis:

An expert on youth culture offers a unique approach to help parents successfully communicate and connect with teens, revealing tools used by MTV, drug dealers, gang leaders, and others who are successfully connecting with America's youth. Original.
