 The 4-1-1 on Surviving Teenhood:
Essential Tips for Parents: Teenage Temptations; Teachable Moments; and More!

Turn on the news or pick up the newspaper and most likely the stories you read will include bullying, sexting, car accidents, burglaries, and/or other types of acts being committed by teenagers. The pressure on our teenagers is too much for many of them to handle. When you consider the teen years are a period of intense physical and intellectual growth, it is understandable that it is a time of confusion and upheaval for both teens and parents.

The primary goal of the teen years is to achieve independence. For this to occur, teens will start pulling away from their parents. They will pull away from the parent they are closest to first. Teens are between the sweet innocence of childhood and the responsible maturity of adulthood, but the issues they deal with are real:

  • Social Issues (Bullying, Texting/Sexting, Sexual Orientation, Runaways, Suicide)
  • Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco & Other Substance Use
  • Growth and Development (Puberty, Skin problems, Nutrition, Sleep Disorders, etc.)
  • Dating, Sex, Birth Control, and Pregnancy

The 4-1-1 on Life Skills:
Essential Tips on: Home & Money Management; Personal Care & Safety, and More!

Fort Myers FL:  This book started out as notes for my daughter and then blossomed into a book for adults of all ages. This is a book about the basic skills needed for everyday living that are not always taught in school or at home. Basic aspects included are Cooking; Cleaning; Healthy Eating; Buying a Home; Gift Giving; Relationships; Finances; Funeral Planning and much, much more. This book is for those that are leaving home for the first time, or those that were in a long term relationship and are now single and don’t know where to start. It is my hope that this book will help those that need it and will be passed onto others that could benefit from it.
