Keeping Your Sanity While Loving and Letting Go of Your Teen

Do you feel the job of parenting your teen is not the job you signed up for?

Then you are in the right place.

“Keeping Your Sanity… is a very informative book. I was impressed by the feelings and ideas Anne captured through her poetry. The questions raised and the exercises recommended are very informative and thought provoking. Her emphasis on a strength-based approach resonates with my own philosophy. I believe people will find Keeping Your Sanity… a very helpful resource.”
Dr. Robert Brooks, Parenting Expert and Co-Author of Raising Resilient Children

Learn the 10 Sanity Rules for Loving and Letting Go of Your Teen. Use the Drive Through ‘menu’ where you select a rule that you wish to work on and the menu will direct you to tools, tips and strategies to deliver what you need in that moment.

Grab and go with just what you need to begin using immediately in your busy and challenging job as a parent of a teen. Rules and Tools are full of condensed wisdom that comes in manageable bite-sized pieces that are immediately digestible.

• Get new insight and perspectives on the incredibly challenging job that you have of parenting a teen.
Step into the perspective of humor as we navigate the developmental stage of the teen and the developmental stage of the parent. We are growing up, too.

• Take away tools to elevate your perspective.

“This book is fabulous. It is a nice blend of humor, realism, strategies and concepts. Keeping Your Sanity…will be a help to parents and professionals alike.”
Dr. Joyce Maguire Pavao, CEO and Founder of Center for Family Connections and Author of The Family Of Adoption

This book is a ‘hitch up with hope’ for parents of teens challenged by the letting go process. Really, do you know any who aren’t?

Keeping Your Sanity While Loving and Letting Go of Your Teen provides inspiration from someone who has been there --- and is still there.

“This is not a self-help book that makes you feel guilty, that you are doing it all wrong or that you are not doing enough. It emphasized to me that I do not have to be a prisoner of my current mood or mindset. This book reminded me that I can influence and choose my attitude. It is a quick read, easy to use and has no judgments. I loved it!”
Cindy, mother of four
