About the Book

Book description

So, what's the smartest thing you can do to create a great relationship with your teenager?

In fact, there is an excellent answer to that question. I discovered this method by chance back in 2007 when I started coaching teenagers. 

I was amazed by how easy it suddenly was to get them to listen to me. And they shared feelings and thoughts from their life! 

And here's the secret I discovered:

Many mothers and fathers I talk to think the most important thing behind a good parent-child relationship is that their children like them. I thought so too.

It's not. It turns out that the key to a really good relationship lies in how well teenagers like themselves - in conversation with you. That's the secret!

If you can help them to like themselves - they will like you, and you will have the relationship you dream about. 

I kept getting questions from parents about how I made such a good connection with their teenagers, fast.

So instead of answering all the emails, I decided to write an ebook about it.

 I have spent the last years developing this method, and now I have pinpointed the seven most important techniques.

This works well if your child: 

* does not want to listen to you. (Attitude, arguing, yelling)


* does not want to talk to you and open up. (Low self-esteem, quiet, isolating.)  

I share these tools in my book which are all about how to get teenagers to listen - and open up. Without nagging.

You will learn the seven easy steps that quickly make your kid do tasks at home, get better self-esteem, and become happier.

You will learn what to say - and how to say it.

Here is the content of the book, the seven steps success path:

Day 1: We start creating trust by saying three special words.

Day 2: You ask a smart question that makes the teenager feel special.

Day 3: Building from yesterday, now the child talks.

Day 4: You learn a method that will lead you to become a people magnet.

Day 5: A sentence that makes it so much easier to have great conversations with your child.

Day 6: A clever way to address problems.

Day 7: Unity is created.

If teenagers like themselves, they are so much easier to get along with...;-)

The book helps your child to:
* Be positive and confident.
* Be interested in listening to you.
* Complete tasks.

Reading time is approximately 90 minutes. British Diane Weller is the Copy Editor for this English edition.


If you are having problems with your child, it is often connected to the way they see themselves.

You can do this! Many parents have told me they’ve seen positive results, fast.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I have to follow the seven steps?
A: No. You decide. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with the words and strategies because you must come across as authentic.

At the same time, steps 1 and 2 are designed to build trust so it will be easier to address more pressing issues later in the week.

Q: Do I have to use the seven days?
A: No. That said, I strongly recommend that you use the tools and say the words to your child, and then allow some space between the techniques so they can "settle" in the teenager.

P.S. This book is tailored to
1: Improve your relationship with your teenager.
2: Equip yourself with positive psychological communication techniques that cause other people to enjoy your company.
3: Improve the child’s self-esteem and encourage positive thoughts about themselves, which is the key to a good life.
