As a parent, you want to see your teen succeed in school and in life--and you do your best to help. But how do you know what will make a difference? Maybe it's time to listen to a teacher. Day in and day out, teachers watch kids interact with peers, make decisions, deal with difficulty, accept or deflect responsibility . . . Teachers are our eyes and ears--and there's a lot they wish we knew. In "Teenagers 101," veteran high school teacher Rebecca Deurlein examines how we can support our teens as they cope with the challenges of the modern world. In an age of instant gratification, how do they learn to work hard? How do they become self-reliant when Mom and Dad are quick to step in? How do they make the transition from kids to adults? Speaking as an educator and a parent herself, Deurlein offers practical strategies for getting teens to: Be self-motivated - Take responsibility for learning - Puzzle through problems - Become their own advocate - Present themselves well - And more Packed with engaging anecdotes and backed by years of experience, "Teenagers 101" is a crash course on the skills teenagers everywhere need to thrive in college and beyond.

I would recommend all my friends about this book. It's very practical for all parents. I learned a lot from this book. Unlike other parenting books which you flip a few pages and you've already lost interests, this book will get all your attention.Thank you Dr. Deurlein!

I am a parent and former teacher. I thought I knew everything there was to know about teenagers. Well, reading "Teenagers 101" proved I was wrong. Dr. Rebecca Deurlein has written a comprehensive guide to dealing with teenagers. Her concrete examples and case studies show us exactly how we should handle different scenarios. Perhaps her comment that parenting is an art not an exact science sums it all up.
