Product Description

If you've ever lain awake at night wondering what might be around the corner of your child's adolescence, this study is for you! After more than 38-years of working with more than 2,500 teens, Mark Gregston introduces tough Guys and Drama Queens--for parents of preteens and teens with time tested, biblical techniques to guide you through these unavoidably challenging years.

Mark helps parents realize that some natural parenting approaches are counter-productive and therefore totally ineffective. He offers tried-and-true wisdom on the vital importance of relationship and forgiveness, and he explaions how conflict is actually the precursor to change.

Each day your children are bombardeded by a highly sexualized culture and over exposed to words and images that can influence them beyond your reach. Your connection to them during these years is critical as is your response to tough issues such as:
  • appearance
  • performance
  • authority & respect
  • boundaries

Publisher's Description

Parents of preteens and teens can move from scared to prepared with a new approach to parenting their adolescents. Parents of preteens intuitively know that no matter how good their kids are, there is turbulence ahead. Many feel lost and unprepared as they watch the damaging effects of culture collide with their child's growing pains and raging hormones.

For the past 35 years Mark Gregston has lived and worked with struggling teens and knows what it takes to reach them. He says, "A parent's success has little to do with either the validity of their words or their intent as messengers, it's more about how they approach their child and engage with them."

Designed for use with the DVD-based study, the guide will explore:

  • What's so different about today's culture
  • Why traditional parenting no longer works
  • A new model for parenting teens

Foundational and practical, Tough Guys and Drama Queens Parent's Guide answers the questions that parents are asking, helping them become the parents their children need them to be.
