Engaging Adolescents Book Review: Engaging Adolescents Reviewed by: For many parents the question becomes not just how to keep them out of trouble, but how to keep them engaged long enough to steer through challenging times with confidence.
In his new book, Engaging Adolescents: Parenting Through Tough Issues With Teenagers, Micheal Hawton offers parents the skills to do what sometimes seems impossible—to reach their teenager. Raising teenagers is about helping them reach emotional maturity, ensuring their wellbeing and teaching them the difference between what is appropriate and inappropriate in behavior.
Emotional maturity, Hawton says, is about achieving a balance between an event and our reaction to the event. What parents can do, Hawton says, is ensure that their children get enough sleepbalance the use of technology in their lives and stay away from alcohol and drugs.
Of fundamental importance for parents is to find ways to connect with the teenagers, and to outweigh negative experiences with positive ones. Sorting out behavior into categories such as what can be ignored, what is annoying but not serious, what behavior cannot be let go and what behavior needed to be prompted can also be a helpful strategy for parents.
Hawton also suggests that parents use scripts when addressing difficult issues with their teens, because it is at these times when they will have to manage their own emotions as well as the flare-ups of their teen.
Prepare what you are going to say; make an appointment to avoid feeling rushed; say something positive; say what the problem is and what you want to happen; tame the feelings of your son or daughter and agree on some things that will happen.
Beyond recognizing the difficult behavior, however, is preserving the relationship. Hawton suggests that parents guide conversations by reflecting and defusing strong emotions, be curious and dig deeper emotionally, ask for more responsibility from their teens and respond when their teens insults or attacks them.Adolescent Development and Pathways to Problem Behavior 1.
