Hey ladies!


I am wondering if any of you have a book you would recommend to deal with teens when shit gets hard?  My son has recently moved in with his dad, who I get along great with and live really close to.  He has a great house and essentially my son gets to live a life of luxury there.


Anyways, I need tips/advice/a book to deal with such things like defiance, disrespect, misuse of social media, and communication.  


Thanks so much!!

I was recommended these books when my son was seeing an amazing clinician at our city's Child/Adolescent Response Team last year:


An Unchanged Mind by John McKinnon



To Change a Mind by John McKinnon



The first is like the prequel to the second. Fairly easy reads with a clear theory and direction.I have found them to be really really really helpful.
