Raising Real People: Creating a Resilient Family
Fuller identifies parenting practices in well-functioning families that work with adolescents, as well as looking at practices that don’t work. He also illustrates the changing fashions in parenting theory, and the different social expectations and pressures that make each generation’s task different from that of the previous generation. Fuller’s approach is light-hearted and supportive of parents. His awareness that adolescence is a time of enjoyment, as well as being anxiety-provoking for parents, is humorously illustrated in advice sheets around 38 typical, and some more difficult, parenting issues.
