Relationships 101 – Parenting Teens and Tweens, and the Process of Change

Dr. Beth (www.drbethericfkson.com) first spoke with Dr. John G. Duffy (www.johngduffy.com) about the ideas in his book The Available Parent. By this, Dr. Duffy does not mean that parents need to be at their children’s beck and call; rather, that they need to be emotionally available. This is the best parenting strategy. Then she spoke with Susyn Reeve (www.susynreeve.com), author of The Inspired Life, about the process of change, some pitfalls to take into account, and why some others undermine your changing.
