Synopses & Reviews
“I don’t know why my daughter is so angry. She yells at me all the time!”
“Our daughter comes home, goes straight to her room, turns on her CD player and won’t talk to anyone– especially me.”
“The emotional ups and downs of our daughter’s life make us all feel like we’re on a roller coaster.”
Navigating an adolescent daughter’s emotional life is one of a mom’s toughest challenges. A teenage girl’s volatile emotions can seemingly toss her–and you–like a hurricane. When a scary external world and a turbulent internal world collide, the result is sometimes overwhelming and confusing. What can you do to protect your relationship with your daughter, guide her through this chaotic time, and assure her you are truly on her side?
Your Adolescent Daughter’ s Struggles Can Help Her–and You–to Grow and Thrive.
The good news is you are equipped with the most powerful resource available for maintaining and developing connection with your daughter: a mother’s heart. Learn how you can use hand-in-hand mothering skills to become the ally your daughter needs–parenting out of love, not fear–and find out how you both can experience dramatic, life-changing growth in the process.
An invaluable guide for mothers of teenage girls offers aid on dealing with the tempestuous emotional ups and downs that comes with adolescence, including advice on parenting with love and the path to true growth for both mothers and daughters. Original.
