Pediatrician Ken Ginsburg has been helping parents of adolescents for many years, and now his twin teenage daughters, Talia and Ilana, have joined him in researching and writing Raising Kids to Thrive:Balancing Love With Expectations and Protection With Trust.
Offering essential tips on fostering resilience in teens, this book helps parents understand how they can balance unconditional love and still set high expectations for their children; as well recognize when to set boundaries or get out of kids' way so they can learn lessons firsthand.
This book will help parents
* Eliminate the need for "Helicopter" or "Tiger" parenting

Combining Dr. Ginsburg's breadth of experience with the perspective of his daughters and the views of 500 adolescents, Raising Kids to Thrive offers a fresh take on how to successfully parent teens in today's complicated world
