THE TEENAGER IN THE GREENHOUSE
Parenting is hard. And moreover, parenting teenagers is ridiculously hard. Fortunately, educational psychologist and father-of-two Dr Graham Ramsden is here to help. Drawing on nearly three decades of experience of working with young people and their parents, Graham leads us through this labyrinth with great understanding and sympathy, helping us see the world from another perspective - the other side of the greenhouse.
The Teenager in the Greenhouse combines fascinating psychological insights, vivid analogies and a healthy dose of humour to help you parent in a calmer and more controlled manner, with less stress and fewer worries - for both you and your teenager!
Join Graham for an entertaining talk where he will explore some of the main themes of the book. With the use of colourful analogies and psychological research, Dr Ramsden will guide you into the strange and alien landscapes of the teenage brain. Here, you will get to see what it is like to be a teenager again and you may pick up a hint or two about how to argue with your teenager and win every time.
