When you say the words “advice,” “parenting,” and “books” all in one sentence, you probably get an eye-roll feeling. After all, so many parenting advice books feel too clinical or too theoretical in order to truly be helpful.
But there are some gems out there, designed specifically toward guiding parents through the challenges of school-age and teen years. Based upon our wise readers’ recommendations, here are seven parenting books for older kids that are worth reading:
1. Protecting the Gift: Keeping Children and Teenagers Safe (and Parents Sane) – Gavin de Becker
3. Yes, Your Teen is Crazy!: Loving Your Kid Without Losing Your Mind – Michael J. Bradley
4. Parenting Teens with Love and Logic – Foster Cline and Jim Fay
5. Montessori: A Modern Approach – Paula Polk Lillard
