Teen-Proofing : A Revolutionary Approach to Fostering Responsible Decision Making in Your Teenager
by John Rosemond

With his trademark user-friendly, humorous, and common-sense style, John Rosemond lays out a perfectly sound and logical case for recognizing the realities of the teen/parent relationship, forming the foundation, and parenting with the Long Rope Principle. In short, the author demonstrates how mom and dad can avoid the pitfalls of becoming dictatorial Control Freaks, skirt the potholes of turning into permissive Wimps, and enjoy the freedom and rewards of parenting in a controlled (but not controlling) and relaxed manner. Infusing young adults with a sense of personal responsibility, then showing them the results of good and bad choices, is a goal every parent can achieve.
