Many parents have tried to end difficulties like these by setting stricter rules and giving orders. Perhaps you, like they, have found that laying down the law simply doesn't work. Or by going to the other extreme, setting no limits at all, does nothing to help teenagers learn responsibility and cooperation. It is little wonder that many parents feel at a loss to guide their children through the difficult teen years. That's why more and more parents are turning to Step/Teen, systematic training for affective parenting of teens. First there was staff systematic training for effective parents. Over 3,000,000 participants found that the step approach can bring about dramatic changes in family relationships. Early childhood staff, systematic training for effective parenting of children under six, teaches ways to help tackle the special challenges of parenting infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.
Now of there's Step/Teen systematic training for effective parenting of teens, offering a down to earth and practical way to meet the challenges of raising teenagers today.
