For young adolescents, transition from middle school to high school stirs up many emotions ranging from excitement and anticipation to fear and anxiety. Although some issues will dissipate quickly, at this stage in their development, teens tend to strive for individuality and identity, upsetting the apple cart in the way the family has related to each other until now. This is the time for parents to choose their battles wisely and foster loving, structural growth with their adolescent child.
In Let’s Make a Contract: Getting Your Teen Through High School and Beyond, the author presents a new concept for helping manage family dynamics during this highly complex phase. It’s called Preemptive Parenting by Contract (Pep-C) and, if followed closely, almost every issue teens face during their high school years will already have been discussed or at least be readily at hand.
The numerous contract templates in this book cover curfew, school attendance, grades, attire, cyberbullying, prom night, computer and cell phone use, borrowing the car, the college debate, and much more. Get ahead of the high school trends through preemptive parenting.
