9780071464932: The Toughlove® Prescription: How to Create and Enforce Boundaries for Your Teen

Inspired by the revolutionary bestseller Toughlove®, a guide to help parents discipline their children with love and consistency

Toughlove® was an international bestseller and one of the first guidebooks for parents of extremely troubled teens. The Toughlove® Prescription picks up where the million-plus mega-seller left off, helping you discipline your children, who live in a world saturated by cell phones, the Internet, and graphic displays of nudity and violence. Dr. Ron Zodkevitch helps you apply the Toughlove® techniques to more-common problems such as a messy room, smoking, and homework. He also incorporates a new, four-step program for you to reach out to your teens.

From the Back Cover:

Stop your teen's behavior problems before they spin out of control

The world has changed a lot in the quarter century since family therapists David and Phyllis York introduced their legendary Toughlove® program for saving teens in crisis. Now, in The Toughlove® Prescription, Dr. Ron Zodkevitch picks up where the Yorks left off to arm parents with an original program for managing teens in today's digitized, R-rated world and averting crises before they start.

From very serious problems such as drug addiction and violence to more common issues like smoking and body piercing, Dr. Zod arms you with the tools you need to deal with the whole gamut of teen-parenting challenges.

You'll learn how to:

  • Resolve conflicts and restore balance to your family
  • Spot the signs of drug abuse and stop it in its tracks
  • Talk to your teen about sex
  • Work with teachers to keep your child on track at school
  • Deal with the challenges of divorce and blended families
  • Recognize the signs of mental illness and manage a mentally ill teen

Although it prescribes discipline and setting limits, The Toughlove® Prescription isn't about turning teens into obedient robots. Rather, it's about keeping the lines of communication open and teaching them responsibility, cooperation, and the wisdom to make correct choices on their own.

Ron Zodkevitch, M.D., is the medical director and cofounder of American Family Health Services Group and the chairman of Toughlove® America. He is also an associate clinical professor at UCLA School of Medicine and Drew University School of Medicine.
