Patt and Steve Saso navigated all the parenting perils from infancy to preteen insecurity, but nothing could prepare them for the unpredictably of adolescence. One day their teenager might say, "I love you," after the morning ride to school, and the next he might sit in the back seat, sulking in silence. In their new book, "10 Best Gifts For Your Teen", the Sasos offer valuable advice to help families maintain strong relationships through the often turbulent teenage years.

Combining Patt's expertise as a marriage and family therapist with Steve's experience as a high school educator, the Sasos share personal and professional anecdotes in this dispatch from the parenting trenches, detailing what adolescents want and need from their parents for emotional support. Teenagers will test the limits. Parents will make mistakes. But no matter how distant and resentful they appear to be, or how disrespectful of parental authority, teenagers internalize their parents' words and actions.

10 Best Gifts For Your Teen-- which include respect, room, role-modeling, responsibility and reconciliation -- teaches parents how to relate when needed, and to relent when necessary, offering support without infringing on their teenagers' burgeoning sense of freedom.

Patt and Steve Saso have shared their wisdom through their Saso Seminars, providing inspiration and information to help parents raise respectful and successful children. And now, with 10 Best Gifts For Your Teen, they have given a gift to parents across the country who want their teenager's transition from childhood to adulthood to be a smooth and rewarding one.
