This book focuses on building resilience in families and comes at a critical moment. Topics I believe are particulary important include coping with challenging emotions, positive parenting, and finding balance. The writing style is ideal for parents. It is informative and research-based, yet manages to be personable and practical with a touch of humor. The authors also weave in Gospel topics/principles in every chapter. Parenting Teens in Stressful Times is a wonderful resource for parents and other influencers. I wish I would have had this when my kids were teens!
