This guide gives dozens of short, to-the-point suggestions on how growing teens can ultimately be comfortable in their own skins well into adulthood. It's a useful reference on self-control, being managed and directing others; and for anyone who grapples with:
•Does my child have the skills it takes to make it on their own?
•How should my kids deal with an increasingly difficult world?
•Am I being a role model or modelling roles?
•What kind of family adviser am I?
Full disclosure: The author is no psychologist, therapist or certified coach; but he's successfully led teams, guided staff and earned praise for his management style from more peers than have criticized it; and the companies and departments he's run have consistently shown improvements in results and revenues.
