A healthy conversation is supposed to be a give-and-take exchange. But in a tech-savvy generation conditioned to Instagram and texting, is anyone really listening? This weekend on Parenting Today’s Teens, Mark Gregston presents one key truth and some practical tips to transform every conversation with your teen.
This book promises to help parents see that their success has little to do with either the validity of their words or their intent as the messengers. It’s more about how parents approach their child, how they present a path through the jungle of negative influences, and how they engage with their child should they succumb to or become curious with the offerings of the world. Written from the crucible of experience, Tough Guys and Drama Queens was written to be the book that gives answers to the questions that parents are asking. It’s the voice of a reassuring friend who comes along side and prepares them for the bumpy ride. It’s the wise perspective that works.
The Parenting Today's Teens daily feature has grown out of Mark's passion to help teens and their families work through crisis situations...and to help prepare parents for the challenges of the teenage years.
Mark is in high demand as a speaker and conducts "Dealing with Today's Teens" seminars across the country. Mark and his wife, Jan, reside in Longview, Texas, and have two children and two grandchildren.
