  • 1. ==== ====NO-NONSENSE PARENTING FOR TODAYS TEENAGER - How To Feel Like A Good ParentEven When Your Teenager "Hates" You...http://tinyurl.com/7czhhyc==== ====MYTH: All teens have to rebel, and the teen years will be miserable years for a family.REALITY: Teens do have to separate from their parents and families. Thats good - otherwise kidswould be living at home when they are 35.They do, however, have to earn the privilege of being in charge.MYTH: Once teens rebel, you have lost them forever.REALITY: This is the fear of every parent, but it doesnt happen in most cases.

In order to raise kids and teach moralcharacter, you have to go against the prevailing culture.MYTH: Your teen years were just like those of your teen-ager.REALITY: Many of the character issues they are dealing with are very much like the ones you

Dont make the mistake of thinking its all the same.==== ====NO-NONSENSE PARENTING FOR TODAYS TEENAGER - How To Feel Like A Good ParentEven When Your Teenager "Hates" You...http://tinyurl.com/7czhhyc==== ====
