From over two decades of listening to young people tell him things they were not telling their parents or anyone else, Roy Petitfils learned that often what teens think and feel most deeply might not be what you think. Young people struggle to find their own voice--in their families and the larger community.
Too often teenagers take their needs and concerns underground and share in secret their hurts, fears, and disenchantment. They console one another because for many the adult world isn't a safe place for them. This book discusses issues such as your relationship with a teen, acceptance of teen behaviour, plus much more.
