One moment your daughter is fun-loving and energetic-a pleasure to be around. The next she's sulking in silence, or worse, screaming and slamming the door. Congratulations, you're the mother of a teenage girl. Your daughter is on an emotional roller coaster. Responding in kind just adds fuel to the fire and erodes your relationship. Teens need a stable anchor-a mom who calmly de-escalates scenes and parents intentionally, even when her child is pushing away. Written by a popular family therapist, Dial Down the Drama reveals how to reclaim your center and reconnect with your teen.

It helps you:

  • Break the cycle of conflict.
  • Tune in to your daughter without drowning in her drama.
  • Foster spontaneous conversations.
  • Understand the developing adolescent brain and how it influences behavior.
  • Appreciate her for who she is now-a wonderful, work in progress.
  • Replace worrying and overreacting with effective communication and action.
  • Forge a healthy and lasting bond together Moodiness, anger, and defiance can stress the best of us.
This empowering guide gives you the tools you need to defuse the drama-and dial up the joy.
