Book synopsis

Author, educator, speaker, and mother of two Icard (Middle School Makeover, 2014) remembers her own awkward adolescence vividly. These memories have inspired her work helping middle schoolers and their parents thrive and stay connected. Here, Icard guides readers through this challenging time, when kids suddenly seem to transform into different creatures and start to pull away. She shares the guiding principles for successful conversations and helpful ways to improve talks with your tween as well as alerting caregivers to common "conversation crashers." From there, the book can be read cover to cover, or as Icard suggests, in a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style, jumping around to whichever topic is needed at the time. This all may sound overwhelming during a time when children seek independence and connecting with them seems hopeless, but Icard has managed to create an incredibly user-friendly and straightforward guide. Fourteen by Fourteen is a must-read for caregivers of adolescents, providing readers with the necessary tools to talk to their tweens and sustain happy and healthy relationships. -Booklist 2021Author, educator, speaker, and mother of two Icard (Middle School Makeover, 2014) remembers her own awkward adolescence vividly.
