Closing the Gap A Strategy for Bringing Parents and Teens Together by Jay McGraw

When did that sudden gap divide your home into territories staked and claimed, with music blasting through the halls and fists banging on doors to turn down the stero/TV/video game? Teens, when did you start seeing your parents as your enemies instead of your heroes? And parents, when did you start seeing your teens as crazy little demons instead of your loving children? Now, there is a solution for both sides, and one that will not only bridge that gap but show parents and teens alike how prevent it. Jay McGraw is the ideal person to write a book for BOTH parents and teens. A bestselling author by the age of twenty-one and son of #1 bestselling author Dr Phil McGraw, Jay has seen the parent-teen battle from all angles. In this groundbreaking work, he introduces a new plan for both teens and their parents to work thorough the issues that divide them and, in the process, rediscover the love that initially defined their relationship. CLOSING THE GAP gives instructions to both sides of the familial gap on: * Dos and Don'ts for Parents and Teens * Parent and Teen Myths * Discovering Your Needs * Tuning In to the Needs of Others * Ten Ways to Bridge the Gap and Reconnect In finding a common ground and, even more important, a common respect for each other, parents and teens can break down the walls, unlock the doors, and welcome each other back into one another's lives again.
