“Interested in understanding what your teen really thinks? “What I Wish You Knew Conversations” may be of help. Written by Sharon Weingarten, a sensitive and observant clinician and mother, this book offers an illuminating look into the inner world of adolescents. Teens naturally (and understandably) keep much to themselves as they develop identities and lives independent of their parents. Supporting and guiding them through this process takes patience, a bit of wisdom, and the ability to truly listen to your teen’s thoughts, feelings, and concerns. In this slim volume you’ll listen in on teens lives as they share their worries and aspirations. As important, you’ll learn how to offer an open-ear to your teen.”
