It’s not easy to be a teen girl, and it’s definitely not easy parenting one. Parents everywhere struggle to respond appropriately to challenging behavior, hit-or-miss communication, and fluctuating moods commonly exhibited by teenage girls. More than previous generations, today’s teen girls face a daunting range of stressors that put them at risk for a range of serious issues, including self-harming behaviors, substance abuse, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. Is it any wonder that parents are overwhelmed?

Parenting a Teen Girl is a guide for busy parents who want bottom-line information and tips that make sense—and work. It also offers scripts to improve communication, and exercises to navigate stressful interactions with skill and compassion. Whether your teen girl is struggling with academic pressure, social difficulties, physical self-care, or technology overload, this book offers practical advice to help you connect with your teen girl. Parents and teens alike can enjoy a positive connection once common parent-teen pitfalls are replaced with solid understanding and strategies that work. In this book, you will learn how to:
Maximize your teen’s healthy development Understand what underlies her moods and behavior Implement strategies for positive results Communicate effectively about difficult issues Enjoy and appreciate time with your teen daughter

Help – My Daughter is From Another Planet!!!! A book review of "Parenting a Teen Girl"

Very good book for anyone trying to parent & raise a teenage girl. As a single dad, this has helped me tremendously, knowing that my daughter has lots of inner struggles, peer pressure, self-image issues & more emphasis on what OTHER people (teenagers) are thinking; plus she’s caught in that awkward age between a “kid” & an “adult”…hormones aren’t the problem, they are there but the big issue is the developing brain. I think every parent of a teenage girl should at least read it & then see how you feel/think about what the author is saying. Personally, I highly recommend it!

I bought this book on my kindle, I think it is the kind of advice/guide book that I will return to often when feeling confused or exasperated. I ordered a teen parenting book before, I forgot the title, but it was not helpful at all and it talked down to me as a parent, as if I hadn’t already thought of and tried out the obvious author’s suggestions. Like we parents didn’t get the nuances.

This booked helped dad understand his teenage daughter & her needs to find identity & launch from the family nest. Practical & frank without any “psycho-babble”. Identifies teen behavior & the whys with solutions to support & love her through this difficult time. Always positive in uplifting.

Great Book With Great Insights.

Borrowed this book from a friend and loved it so I bought It and so should you!! I love how this book looks at today’s world of our teenagers and gives us real tools to help us with the things that are pertinent to what are girls are going through each day. The chapters include topics such as supporting healthy habits, dealing with school achievement and stress management and “taming the tech tiger”, plus many more great topics to support us as parents/grandparents or loved ones of teen girls to help them become there best selves.

… chapters left to read but I have been very pleased with it so far

I still have a couple chapters left to read but I have been very pleased with it so far. The book gives such realistic examples that sometimes I feel like they could have pulled them from our everyday life. It has helped guide me with my daughter as she enters a different stage of her life. I’m so grateful to have found a book that gives loving advice.

Terrific advice!

Helped a single mom and adoptive grandmother understand their 12 year old who was already thinking she was 18. Helping solve communications, attitudes especially in this tech age, with the bottom line still being limits that we both grew up with. Dr. Hemmen has a delightful writing style and I found it hard to put the book down. Her examples were “spot on”.

Very helpful book. Good balance of theoretical (psychological concepts) and practical advice. Really useful to read as a parent of a teen, and would be even better to read prior to becoming a teen. It’s a quick read, so MAKE THE TIME!

Very well written

I love this book because the advice really works. I have been going through a terrible time with my teenage daughter and was desperate for help and this book gave it to me. The author obviously has lived through this and has a very clear cut way of explaining how to handle difficult situations.
