Cool Communication: A Mother and Daughter Reveal the Keys to Mutual Understanding Between Parents and Kids
Berkley Publishing Group, 1998 - Family & Relationships - 329 pages
The first common-sense family guide written by -- and for -- both the parent and the teenager.
Most parenting guides are written from the perspective of a Ph.D., not a parent -- or a child. Here, in a refreshingly candid guide, is frank talk about coping with everything from curfews to self-esteem to responsibility. By using "Cool Communication" parents and kids can learn to talk to -- and even understand -- each other. Using witty anecdotes and warm advice, Andrea Frank Henkart and her 16-year-old daughter Journey explain both sides of the often turbulent and frustrating parent/child relationship. "Cool Communication" helps bridge the communication gap between parents and kids through greater understanding, articulation of both points of view, and the validation of both parents' and children's perspectives.
