Parenting children of any age is not a simple undertaking. As much as we desperately want to do it right and be respected and remembered by our kids as being a great parent, our teenagers often test our patience, cause us to lose sleep over our worries about them, and make us scratch our heads in frustration. The good news is that there are concrete ways to experience a fully functioning, highly communicative relationship with your adolescent children.
In a challenging, humorous, and sometimes raw guide, Vanessa Baker relies on her professional experience as a teen mindset coach and personal insight as the mother of six to upend the socially accepted attitudes and norms of parenting teenagers. While offering parents an innovative framework in which the acronyms MEAN, REAL, and CLEAN are broken down into action steps and powerful mindset shifting concepts, Baker encourages parents to take a journey inward to not only better understand their teenagers, but also themselves as a person and parent. Included is an introduction to her corresponding course as well as information on how to create a fully functional relationship in five steps.
From MEAN to REAL CLEAN is a comprehensive guide that provides an innovative framework that leads parents down an empowering path to understand what it means to raise teens.
