This encouraging book helps parents reframe conflict as an opportunity for their adolescent children to become more responsible, with many helpful suggestions how to help make that possible. Two key principles are stressed. First, let our youth learn from the consequences of their decisions. Provided that these are not life-threatening or morally- threatening, these are the best ways our teens will learn. Second, even when they are challenging our faith in them, never stop expressing encouragement. My suggestion is to read it cover to cover first, to recover your hope, then slowly again, chapter by chapter and try out the techniques suggested.
