  • Boy Crazy!

    Boy Crazy!
    Keeping our Daughter's Feet on the Ground When...
    Your little girl used to play with Barbie. Now she dresses like her. The course of teen love never did run smooth, but these days it seems bumpier than ever. Children are growing up faster and pushing the boundaries of sexuality earlier, as well as facing new kinds of pressures most parents have never even dreamed of. You cannot shut down your daughter's hormones. What she is feeling—the thrill of romantic anticipation and the euphoria of falling in love—is biologically programmed and age appropriate. But watching your daughter discover boys is both exciting and scary. Before you lies a major challenge: helping your daughter navigate the oncoming rush of romance during the young adolescent and teen years. Boy Crazy! shows you how to recognize and remember what your daughter is going through—the excitement of a first date, the throes of a first crush, or the pain of a first broken heart. It also gives you insight into what teen love is like today, and helps you establish yourself as your family’s authority on relationships—no longer will daughters feel starved for guidance and forced to turn to the suspect guidance of the media or peers. Learning how to enjoy romance and build healthy relationships are some of the most important skills to have throughout our lives. This book is a blueprint to understanding and helping your coming-of-age daughter start to develop those skills.

    What Are You Doing in There?

    What Are You Doing in There?
    Balancing Your Need to Know With Your...
    The "middler years," ages ten through fifteen, have always been characterized by an urge for independence and secrecy from parents. But these days, that secrecy can lead to more danger than ever before. Tackling the frustrations and fears of parenting in a world where cyber predators make headlines every day and "normal" adolescents act out in ways that beg the question "Where were the parents?", What Are You Doing in There? presents a new way of approaching a child's private life. In their inimitable, candid style, Charlene Giannetti and Margaret Sagarese offer a variety of strategies for staying informed without resorting to snooping, eavesdropping, or other embarrassing KGB-like tactics. Within each of a child's six privacy zones—bedroom, friends, romance, school, body, and the Internet—Giannetti and Sagarese educate parents about common cover-ups and how to establish limits that enhance a spirit of mutual respect within the household. Exploring not just whether to worry, but how to go about getting honest answers, What Are You Doing in There? charts a course designed to instill maturity that will last well beyond the middler years. The media constantly exhort parents to find out what the kids are really up to. Now there's finally a common-sense guidebook for addressing suspicions—without doing more harm than good. From the Trade Paperback edition.

    How Your Catholic Faith Provides Hope and...
    Timely Guidance and Inspiration for Parents of Children in Crisis   The bestselling authors ofThe Roller-Coaster Years,Parenting 911, andCliquesdraw deeply on their faith and the rich Catholic spiritual tradition in this guide for parents of children in crisis. InGood Parents, Tough Times, authors Charlene C. Giannetti and Margaret Sagarese focus on the spiritual well-being of the parent as much as the behavior of the child. The authors draw parallels between the real-life struggles parents face today and those endured by the saints. They believe that the qualities that enabled the saints to face great troubles—charity, knowledge, faith, hope, patience, serenity, truth, and humility—can help parents cope with a troubled child. “This book provides what every parent needs: a chance to learn from the saints and to look to them for encouragement and practical advice.” —Scott Hahn, author ofThe Lamb’s Supper “Deep, yet simple and practical, this book will help parents and all who have teens in their lives to know better how to listen, pray, and help.” —Fr. Paul Keenan, author ofHeartstorming “[Good Parents, Tough Times] not only offers parents the saints’ very practical advice about raising teens with faith, hope, and love, but also helps parents receive the grace of the saints’ powerful intercession.” —Bert Ghezzi, author ofVoices of the SaintsandMystics and Miracles
