How to Talk to Teens About Really Important Things is the essential guide for those who has found themselves ill prepared-and ill at ease-when discussing some of life's most important issues with teens. In this much needed book, award-winning authors Charles Schaefer and Theresa Foy DiGeronimo offer parents a commonsense approach for knowing just what to say to teens and how and when to say it. For easy reference, How to Talk to Teens About Really Important Things is organized alphabetically by topic and offers clear, authoritative guidelines on discussing a variety of vital issues such as depression, suicide, dieting, gangs, drugs, and date rape."The authors have a unique knack for combining good psychology with good sense. Their advice is the most current I have seen-they clearly know what's on the mind of today's teenagers."-Lawrence E. Shapiro, author of How to Raise a Child with a High IQ
