Help and Hope for Parents & Teachers of Teenagers.
"Powerful. Refreshing. Hilarious. I literally couldn't put it down! The scope and candor of this book cut to the realities of parenting and teaching while offering hope through practical solutions... a pure joy to read." Dr. Paul Lewanski, Ed.D., California Teacher of the Year, Father of Two.
Tyler Durman has spoken live to over 4 million teenagers. Following each presentation, where he offers guidance through comedic storytelling, students approach him to confide and confess things they've never told their parents, teachers, or even best friends.
Thousands of these one on one conversations have given Tyler a rare window into their lives, allowing him to gain wisdom about the surprising and counter-intuitive things they need and long for from the adults in their lives.
If you want to experience joy and intimacy in your relationship with your child or students, the observations and tools in these pages will give you a way forward. If you're feeling overwhelmed or at a loss, they'll provide hope.
As a former teacher and father of five, Tyler writes with a voice that's fresh, raw, and just pure fun. He's found a way to relay profound wisdom while being intensely funny at the same time.
