As your tween or teen gets older, it is important to have a good selection of books on parenting. These days, there are plenty of parenting books for teens and tweens available on the market. In this blog post, we will discuss the 7 Best Parenting Books for Tweens and Teens!
-Cool-Headed Strategies for Parenting Tweens + Teens – Updated and Expanded
If you have tweens or teens, buy this book and read it from cover to cover. I only wish I’d had it earlier when my sons were younger, as the ideas are still relevant as they approach 20 years old. This book is great for raising tweens. It tells you about your brain and how it changes during adolescence. This helps us know that we are not the only ones who feel confused and frustrated sometimes.
Understanding that a lot of what we regard as impossible behavior is merely children doing the work of maturing, and knowing there are real solutions for coping, is not only reassuring but also very beneficial. This book will teach you about how to have a plan. It gives you real-life examples of how to make the plan work. The book is intelligent and easy to understand. It’s not mean at all. Just read it and you will like it. -Review
-A Parent’s Guide to Surviving the Turbulent Pre-Teen Years
I have two daughters, 8 and 10. My 10-year-old acts like an adult – she already has the mindset of a 15-year-old. I have found that “The Everything Tween Book” book is very informative and very easy to understand. I have “The Everything Money Book for Kids” as well. Before purchasing this, I looked at a number of different books. After reading this book, I think, this one is the best book for parents of tweens. – Review
-Strategies for Unlocking Your Child’s Full Potential
I love how the author highlighted the issues that our kids face today, as opposed to when we were children. As a parent of a tween, I really like the strategies and tools given to help my child have a better childhood. This book helps children reach their full potential. It is a good book for parents of tweens. -Review
I liked how the author structured effective communication with a kid via the various activities presented in this book. The author says that we need to go back to when we were the same age as a child (or younger) to better form a connection with them.
He asks pertinent questions about the adolescent years, putting parents in the proper mindset for understanding their child’s unique concerns, needs, and aspirations, as well as how to build open lines of communication. The book is very easy to read and it keeps your interest. The author shares real-life stories which make the book more interesting. -Review
4. How to Raise an Adult
-Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success
As a mother and teacher, I frequently overdo things for my children since I desire the very best for them. I also liked how the author wrote about tolerance and other similar concepts, which were not as relatable to me. I found a lot of valuable information in the book (such as how to really listen to your child, etc). I liked that the material was based on facts, rather than simply from the authors’ viewpoints. This is one of the best teen or tween parenting books.-Review
-A Neuroscientist’s Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults
A book that helps you know the things that may happen to your brain when it is developing and matures. This is very interesting and easy for people of all ages to understand. Despite the fact that it does not provide solutions or advice on how to manage the unavoidable situations of raising children, it’s a really enjoyable read and one that I believe would be revisited time and again as a reference resource.
The author wrote the book for both parents/carers and teenagers, but it is better for adults. A version of this great book written specifically for teens and young adults would be great because then they can understand their challenges in life. -Review
-Getting It Right Before It Gets Rocky with Your 8- to 12-Year-Old
This book is a fantastic quick read that I’ve been searching for when parenting my adolescent. I discovered I knew a lot about parenting toddlers and very young children but wasn’t up to speed on interacting with pre-teens. I like this book. It has helped me to get information and ideas about tween parenting. -Review
(Momz Guides to the Tween-Girl World)
This book will help you understand girls of the age group 8-12. The author discusses much more than just physical changes (she does an excellent job with this, too!). He also talks about emotional changes, sense of identity, spiritual life, social life, and many other areas.
The book is about a girl’s life. The author is very encouraging because she shows how mothers can enjoy this time and stresses the importance of the mother-daughter relationship. I am a grandma who is raising my granddaughter. Girls are different than boys. I think this book would help any mom with teens and tweens. -Review
These Parenting books are great for parents of tweens and teens. They offer advice on how to handle difficult situations, help them grow in their faith, and teach them about the world around them. If you’re looking for a book that will give your tweens some guidance or just want to try out an idea before investing time into it yourself, parenting books are a good place to start!
