Description: In the book titled, The Blessing of a B Minus, author Dr. Wendy Mogel helps parents navigate the teenage years, when a child’s sense of entitlement and independence grows, the pressure to compete skyrockets, and communication becomes fraught with obstacles. She emphasizes empathy and guidance over micromanaging teens’ lives and overreacting to missteps. Mogel reveals that emotional outbursts, rudeness, rule-breaking, staying up late, and other worrisome teen behaviors are in fact normal and necessary steps in psychological growth and character development to be met with thoughtful care, not anxiety.
