Jesper  Juul - Puberty – When Your Kids Know it All and You Can’t Teach them a Thing


Forget upbringing, focus on the relationship

When your children reach puberty, you need to look for new ways of communicating with them – the methods you used to bring them up throughout their childhood are now a thing of the past. Hot off the presses, Jesper Juul’s latest bestseller is based on an intensive seminar with parents and their teenage children, during which they worked with the family therapist, experimenting with solutions to their problems. The result is that children need to have a clear idea of their parents’ opinions on relevant (and often contentious) issues, such as alcohol and going-out times. That way, even if they disagree or don’t act in accordance, their parents’ views still carry a lot of weight. Ideally, teenagers’ parents should be like their sparring partners – in other words, offering maximum resistance while doing minimal damage.
