Parents don't have to be all things at all times for their teens, and many teens yearn for more warm, trusting relationships with caring adults. In Connect 5, author (and mother) Kathleen Kimball-Baker provides hope, encouragement, and practical advice for parents to reach out and help their teens connect with other responsible and supportive adults, a critical factor in their healthy development.

This 142-page book is filled with personal stories and anecdotes, as well as specifics for addressing practical concerns like safety issues and how to approach other adults for help. An engaging book, parents will feel as if they've spent time with a friend who's walked in their "teen-parenting" shoes and has great ideas to share.
