He’s in his room for days at a time and barely responds when I talk to him…

She’s emotional every day, one minute demanding I tend to her needs and the next minute demanding I leave her alone….

What is going on with your teenager? Is it just the ups and downs of adolescence or is it something more?

If either of the above scenarios sound familiar to you, then THE STRANGER IN YOUR HOUSE is a book you need to pick up.

Dr. Gregg Jantz, PhD is the founder of the Center for Counseling and Health Resources, a health-care facility near Seattle that specializes in whole-person care. He has years of experience counseling parents and adolescence and shares his knowledge in this book.
He answers hard questions, such as:

How do hormones affect my teen’s behavior?
Is this “just a phase” or is it “clinical depression”?
How can I get help when I see the warning sign of suicidal thoughts?
How can I be source of peace in my child’s life, especially when I feel stormy too?

This is a book that I needed to read when my first son reached his adolescent years—and then the second son—and then my daughter… some days I wondered if I would go completely insane! With stuffed animals being stabbed and mutilated, temper displays, crying spells and such, I wondered if I’d survive their teen years, let alone my teen! I began to wonder if perhaps Mark Twain was right when he said something along the lines of putting your teen in a barrel until they outgrow their attitudes and behavioral issues. (I don’t remember the exact quote.)

If you have a teenagers—or soon to be teen—then THE STRANGER IN YOUR HOUSE is a book you *must* read. This includes a section on cutting and other dangerous behaviors. $14.99. 224 pages.

I received this book in return for review from the B&B Media Group
