 Te Blessing o a B Minus
Using Jewish eachings to Raise Resilient eenagers
 Wendy Mogel, Ph.D
 New York imes
bestselling author, internationally known clinical psy-chologist, and lecturer Wendy Mogel returns with a revelatory new book on parenting teenagers.Mogel’s sage advice on parenting young children has struck a chord withthousands o readers and made her one o today’s most trusted parentingauthorities. Now, in a long-awaited ollow-up, Mogel addresses the ques-tion she hears most requently: what to do when those children becometeenagers, when their sense o independence and entitlement grows, thepressure to compete and succeed skyrockets, and communication becomesraught with obstacles? With her warmth, wit, and signature combination o Jewish teachingsand psychological research, Mogel helps parents to ably navigate theoten rough journey through the teenage years and guide children to be-coming condent, resilient young adults. By viewing the rustrating and worrisome elements o adolescence as “blessings,” Mogel reveals that they are in act necessary steps in psychological growth and character develop-ment to be met with aith, detachment, and a sense o humor rather thanover-involvement and anxiety. Mogel gives parents the tools to do so andofers reassuring spiritual and ethical advice on
• why inuence is more eective than control.• teenage narcissism.• living graciously with rudeness.• the value of ordinary work.• why risk is essential preparation for the post–high school years.• when to step in and when to step back.• a sanctied approach to sex and substances.
An important and inspiring book that will ortiy parents through theteenage years,
Te Blessing of a B Minus
is itsel a blessing.
