Mom! I Got a Tattoo!: The Survival Guide to Raising a Teenage Daughter (Paperback)
A survival guide for the difficult situations parents of teenage girls face every day.
From work habits and cleanliness to peer pressure, substance abuse and pregnancy, the teenage years bring a tall order of issues for girls and their parents.
Even though many girls react by pulling away from their parents, authors Janet Irwin and Susanna de Vries emphasize that during these difficult years, daughters need their parents more than ever. They show concerned parents how to keep strong bonds and good communication alive even during the most difficult periods of their daughters' adolescence.
"Mom, I Got a Tattoo " helps parents of teenage girls face such important issues as:
- Setting Rules and Boundaries
- Sex and Sexuality
- Tattoos and Piercing
- Bullying and Stealing
- Running Away from home
- Eating Disorders
- Pregnancy and Sexually Transmitted Diseases
- Drugs and Alcohol
And much more. Because as the authors know, the only thing harder than being a teenage girl is raising one.
