Product Description

In Tough Guys and Drama Queens, Mark Gregston, founder of Heartlight Ministries, a residential counseling center for struggling adolescents, helps parents become the parents their children need them to be. The ability of a parent to reach their teen has more to do with approach than words. The book is divided into three sections: 1) What's Different About the Culture Today; 2) Why traditional parenting no longer works; and 3) A new model for parenting teens. So, if you want assistance with guiding your child through raging hormones colliding against a worldly culture, Mark's advice will help you engage your teenager and influence him or her for good.

Are you ready for your child's teen years?

If you've ever lain awake at night wondering what might be around the corner of your child's adolescence, this book is for you! After more than thirty-eight years of working with more than 2,500 years, Mark Gregston, founder of heartlight, a Christian residential counseling center, introduces Tough Guys and Drama Queensa must-read "how-to" book for parents of pre-teens 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 actually counter-productive and therefore totally ineffective.In place of those, he offers tried and true wisdom on the vital importance of relationship, forgiveness, and explains how conflict is actually the precursor to change.

Everyday your child is bombarded by 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 and respect, boundaries, and many more.
