The Blessing of a B Minus : Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Resilient Teenagers

Description

New York Times bestselling author and host of the podcast Nurture vs Nurture Dr. Wendy Mogel shows parents how to navigate the challenging teenage years. When a child becomes a teenager, her sense of entitlement and independence grows, the pressure to compete skyrockets, and communication becomes fraught with obstacles. Dr. Wendy Mogel emphasizes empathy, and offers guidance over micromanaging teens' lives and overreacting to missteps. She reveals that emotional outbursts, rudeness, rule-breaking, staying up late, and other worrisome teen behaviors are in fact normal and necessary steps in psychological growth and character development. With her signature wit and warmth, Mogel gives parents the tools to meet these behaviors with thoughtful care, offering reassuring advice on: - why influence is more effective than control
- teenage narcissism
- living graciously with rudeness
- the surprising value of ordinary work
- why risk is essential preparation for the post-high school years
- when to step in and when to step back The Blessing of a B Minus is an important and inspiring book that fortifies parents through the teenage years.
