Author Offers Free e-Book Giveaway of Lions and Tigers and Teens

Are you wondering if your teen is ready to stay home alone? Myrna Beth Haskell's new book, Lions, Tigers and Teens, offers some excellent advice to help you decide when your teen is ready and feel comfortable with your decision. Haskell, a syndicated columnist who writes for Carolina Parent, is featuring a one-day-only giveaway to promote the e-book version of her book this Labor Day on amazon.com. The book is a compilation of some of Haskell's popular columns for parenting teens and includes several installments that have never been published.

As a parent, I've learned a lot from reading Haskell's articles and columns about raising teens because they are well-researched. In March, for example, she explored a question I've often wondered about, "Should parenting differ depending on a child's gender?" As a mom, I've never believed that dollhouses or baby dolls were just for girls, so I read with interest what experts and others told her about gender stereotyping.

In another recent Carolina Parent column, Haskell tackled a milestone that nearly every parent seems to face these days: Braces. Getting the news that your child needs braces and the accompanying price tag is a shock, but you'll be better prepared after having read the advice she offers gleaned from orthodontists. Two of my children have worn braces, so I can tell you that she's right that timing is everything. You want the braces on at the right time, not too soon or too late. 

If your child has ever had to deal with not making a varsity sport, you know the loss of self-esteem that comes with not making the team. A parent wondering how to respond will find Haskell has useful tips for helping teens move forward after such a disappointment.

For more advice on timely topics, from understanding why your teens don't want to be seen with you in public to teaching them to become good drivers, do a search of our site's articles using the word "Haskell."
