Book: Growing Up With Teens
Publication: Authors Tree
Now this is not going to be like my any other book review where I talk about the Blurp and then about my point of view or review on the book.
Growing Up With Teens is authored by my friend Ruchi Verma who is a certified Teen Parenting Practitioner and a mom of a teen so I know this book comes with first hand experience. I have been following Ruchi’s writing through her blog and when she announced her book, I knew something insightful was in-store for all parents.
Now talking about the book, don’t assume that this book is only for parents of teens. I am yet to reach that stage as my kids are still under 10 but I chose to read this book to prepare myself for what is coming my way.
We know parenting is not an easy job and each one has their own unique and different style of parenting but the stages in a child’s growth are similar. From a baby to a toddler and going to be a teen, the child experiences multiple changes in themselves, be it physically, mentally or in their behaviour and these changes need to be address and we as parents need to be prepared to deal with them.
Ruchi has tapped on all the possible topics of teenage-hood. There are so many things that we as parents shy away from discussing with our kids or finish it off in a hush hush to save ourselves from the embarrassment. But rightly, these topics of Puberty and Sex Education need to be sat across and spoken and discussed with our teens and Ruchi has shared some really helpful ways in which we can do this with an ease.
Our children are growing with social media and all the exposure, good and bad that comes with it. Cyber crime and bullying is real and Ruchi has in detail explained how was a parent we can be a perfect guide to our teens and help them understand the ethics and consequences of their mistake on social platforms.
Ruchi has envisioned this book and penned it in clear words by breaking it into 12 chapters tapping each topic of teen-hood. Parenting a teen is a job in hand and we all are going to be there one day and this book has sensible and doable approach to deal with the teen-trums and the changing teen behaviour.
Coming from an experienced and Certified Teen Parent Practitioner, this book is a perfect guide for us parents to rely on. I am sharing this book my sister in law who is now a mother to a teen and I remember having endless discussions with her about the changes that are coming in my niece and how should they be tackled and all these questions have been answered in this book. So if you are a parent, get this book. You can also get in touch with the author Ruchi Verma via email.
