I have listened to Mark Gregston on-line for years and his wisdom is sound. Here is the book's description taken from Amazon:
"At the end of your rope with your teen? Terrified of the teen horror stories you hear from other parents? It's not easy to be a teenager today, and it's even more challenging to parent teens effectively. Teens face changes in the culture, epidemic levels of social problems, and often develop a real sense of despair that can lead to self-harm, depression, addiction, rebellion and sexual promiscuity. These behaviors don't just hurt your teens: they affect everyone in the family. When your teen acts out, it doesn't mean he is a -bad- kid. And it doesn't mean you are -bad- parents. Great families of all shapes, sizes, values, and income levels find the teen years a challenge. The trick is learning how to love and stand by your teen without accepting the bad behaviors. In When Your Teen is Struggling, author Mark Gregston shares insights, wisdom, and tips for every parent facing hard times with their teen. Mark has taken lessons learned at the boarding school he runs in East Texas"
