I want to share with you just how excited I am about Monday’s radio show guest, Vanessa Van Petten, on my radio show, Kids Tweens and Teens, A Positive Psychologist Looks at All Three, on www.internetvoicesradio.com at 4:30PM, EDT, Monday March 31st.. Vanessa is the author of You’re Grounded!: How to Stop Fighting and Make the Teenage Years Easier. This insightful young author shares parenting advice from a teen’s perspective.
It is her mission to improve parent-teen relationships by providing them with new perspectives, stories and neutral places to communicate. Thus helping families instill values and build strong relationships that promote healthy attitudes and lifestyle behaviors in this generation of young adults. And just as important she wants to help provide positive role models for young people.
Vanessa shares on her website:
"As a senior in High School, I conducted hundreds of interviews to write "You’re Grounded!" as a practical, succinct and realistic guide for both parents and teenagers to read simultaneously. The book not only gives parents and teens strategies to develop their relationship, but also helps them with issues in their individual everyday lives such as cliques, bullying, managing the household chores and finding positive extracurricular activities."
You must tune in Monday for my radio show, when I talk with this insightful and motivated young woman. I know the show will prove to be a wonderful one. We will also be discussing and comparing my new book, The Truth, I’m a girl, I’m smart and I know everything with Vanessa’s book. You can listen to us on www.internetvoicesradio.com, Monday, March 31, 2008 at 4:30pm EDT. And it will be archived 24/7 if you miss it.
You can find Vanessa’s book on Amazon – You’re Grounded: How to Stop Fighting and Make the Teenage Years Easier. Be sure to make purchasing this book a priority. I know this will be exactly what every parent of tweens and teens needs to help pave a smoother road for them and their children.
