In her long-awaited follow up to The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, Dr. Mogel addresses the question asked most often by parents, "How can I be an effective parent in a culture that breeds anxiety and entitlement in children?" In adolescence the stakes are higher, bodies are bigger and parental influence is smaller. With her engaging combination of warmth and wit and her signature coupling of Jewish teachings and psychological research, Mogel shows parents how to ably navigate the rough waters of the teenage years, while adding a measure of joy and humor to the voyage. The Blessing of a B Minus encourages parents to see beyond the drama of teenage crises and the competitiveness of college applications to the goal of raising resilient, optimistic adults.
