  • Talk to your teen about sex
  • Work with teachers to keep your child on track at school
  • Deal with the challenges of divorce and blended families

Stop your teen’s behavior problems before they spin out of control

The world has changed a lot in the quarter-century since family therapists David and Phyllis York introduced their legendary Toughlove® program for saving teens in crisis. Now, in The Toughlove® Prescription, Dr. Ron Zodkevitch picks up where the Yorks left off to arm parents with an original program for managing teens in today’s digitized, R-rated world and averting crises before they start.

From very serious problems such as drug addiction and violence to more common issues like smoking and body piercing, Dr. Zod arms you with the tools you need to deal with the whole gamut of teen-parenting challenges.
