Book for parents of teens

Every month Minnesota Parent receives self-help parenting books filled with stories about how hard to is to parent (and why), but they’re woefully short on solutions. They’re 98 percent backstory.

This book — How to Talk So Teens Will Listen & Listen So Teens Will Talk (part of a longtime bestselling series) — actually offers how-to tips parents can try.

It’s simple, too. As one reviewer put it: This book “says all the same things the high-priced consultants say — treat people with respect, don’t deny their emotions, state the facts (only) and shut up and listen.”
