What To Do For Your Teen’s Health
“As a single parent of a very quiet teenage boy, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to talk to my son about teen issues that maybe a father could have talked to him about. This book has been a very useful tool that allows me to bring these issues in a way that we both feel comfortable talking about.”

What To Do For Your Teen’s Health
“I felt like my 11-year-old daughter and I had communication problems because she is growing up and I was not sure how to talk to her about the many issues that teens face in life as they go through puberty. This book gave me the opportunity to learn about all these teens issues. I also learned how to approach my daughter and talk to her about them in an easy and comfortable way for the both of us.”
