TEENAGE AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

A Parent’s Guide to Becoming Bilingual

Barbara R. Greenberg, PhD

And Jennifer A. Powell-Lunder, PsyD

What’s the story?

You wake up one day and your cheerful, friendly kid has morphed into a sarcastic, sullen adolescent who can’t—or won’t—talk to you.  Now what? Forget Spanish, its time to learn a second language and that language is teen.

Enter TEENAGE AS A SECOND LANGUAGE:  A Parent’s Guide to Becoming Bilingual (Adams Media, a division of F+W Media; November) by Barbara R. Greenberg, PhD and Jennifer A. Powell-Lunder, PsyD—the only book on the market to reveal concrete strategies any parent can use to maintain good communication, healthy interaction, and strong connections to their teens.

What does it mean for your audience?

Based on the latest research, this book works as a Rosetta Stone to help parents hear what their teens are really saying—one dialogue at a time.  Readers will learn how to:

  • Let their teens help set the rules—and the consequences for breaking them
  • Put honesty above all else
  • Realize that “me, me, me!” is actually age-appropriate behavior
  • Try not to criticize, judge, or become angry
