In 2015, Harvard researchers found that every child who does well in the face of adversity has had at least one stable and committed relationship with a supportive adult. But Josh Shipp didnâ€™t need Harvard to know that. Once an at-risk foster kid, he was headed straight for trouble until he met the man who changed his life: Rodney, the foster parent who refused to quit on Shipp and got him to believe in himself.Now, in The Grown-Upâ€™s Guide to Teenage Humans, Shipp shows all of us how to be that caring adult in a teenagerâ€™s life. Stressing the need for compassion, trust, and encouragement, he breaks down the phases of a teenage human from sixth to twelfth grade, examining the changes, goals, and mentality of teenagers at each stage.Shipp offers revelatory stories that take us inside the teen brain, and shares wisdom from top professionals and the most expert grown-ups. He also includes practice scripts that address tough issues, including:FORGIVENESS: What do I do when a teen has been really hurt by someone and itâ€™s not their fault?COMMUNICATION: How do I get a teen to talk to me? They just grunt.TRUST: My teen blew it. My trust is gone. Where do we go from here?BULLYING: Help! A teen (or their friend) is being harassed.DIFFICULT AND AWKWARD CONVERSATIONS: Drugs. Death. Sex. Oh my.Written in Shippâ€™s playfully authoritative, no-nonsense voice, The Grown-Upâ€™s Guide to Teenage Humans tells his story and unpacks practical strategies that can make a difference. Ultimately, it's not about shortcuts or magic wordsâ€”as Shipp reminds us, itâ€™s about investing in kids and giving them the love, time, and support they need to thrive.And that means every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.
