Revue de presse

“Wise, witty and well-written, this book is a treasury of common sense for anyone dealing with adolescents.”

--Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

“Wendy Mogel's signature humor, humility and wisdom are back in full force in The Blessing of a B Minus, which will bring much-needed sanity to parents of teens. Hers is the voice that every parent dreams of finding while wading through the confusion of childrearing today: calm, knowing, empathetic and informed both by professional knowledge and personal experience. Her insights are infused with a widely appealing kind of faith that will strike a universal chord in parents seeking both a moral and practical compass. This is a book that will be re-read over and over again.”

--Judith Warner, author of Perfect Madness and We’ve Got Issues

"We should all give thanks for The Blessing of a B Minus. Like Wendy Mogel herself, this book is funny and full of common sense. It will give parents something they need: perspective on the complicated and often maddening business of raising adolescents."
--Michael Thompson, Ph.D., author of It's a Boy: Your Son's Development from Birth to Eighteen

“Wendy Mogel’s ability to make old wisdom new is uncanny. She is herself a wise woman. The parents of America – and therefore the children, too – should be grateful for her.”
--Leon Wieseltier

“In this remarkably frank, helpful book Wendy Mogel offers practical advice and comforting perspective on all the issues, large and small, that families of all faiths and backgrounds confront as their children move through adolescence. Here is a voice of humor, reason, and compassionate sanity in a culture driven by hyper-competitiveness, hyper-vigilance, and hyper-activity. The Blessing of a B Minus inspires and consoles. Most importantly, this very readable book gives us the tools we need to become more conscious, confident parents. This is not Jewish wisdom, it is human wisdom, and I for one am a most grateful recipient.”

--Katrina Kenison, author of The Gift of an Ordinary Day --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times bestselling author, internationally known clinical psychologist, and lecturer Wendy Mogel returns with a revelatory new book on parenting teenagers.

Mogel’s sage advice on parenting young children has struck a chord with thousands of readers and made her one of today’s most trusted parenting authorities. Now, in a long-awaited follow-up, Mogel addresses the question she hears most frequently: what to do when those children become teenagers, when their sense of independence and entitlement grows, the pressure to compete and succeed skyrockets, and communication becomes fraught with obstacles?

With her warmth, wit, and signature combination of Jewish teachings and psychological research, Mogel helps parents to ably navigate the often rough journey through the teenage years and guide children to becoming confident, resilient young adults. By viewing the frustrating and worrisome elements of adolescence as "blessings," Mogel reveals that they are in fact necessary steps in psychological growth and character development to be met with faith, detachment, and a sense of humor rather than over-involvement and anxiety. Mogel gives parents the tools to do so and offers reassuring spiritual and ethical advice on

• why influence is more effective than control.

• teenage narcissism.

• living graciously with rudeness.

• the value of ordinary work.

• why risk is essential preparation for the post–high school years.

• when to step in and when to step back.

• a sanctified approach to sex and substances.

An important and inspiring book that will fortify parents through the teenage years, The Blessing of a B Minus is itself a blessing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Living graciously with chronically rude teenagers. 11 octobre 2010
Par John F. Lehman - Publié sur
A book with the year's best title just happens to be the best book on parenting teens. It purports to use Jewish teachings to raise resilient teenagers, but whether or not that is the source of this life-saving wisdom, as a parent of former teenagers (they are now in their forties), I can't praise this books message enough. In fact, instead of nitpicking, let me give you some of its invaluable conclusions:

1. Bizarre teen behavior, so annoyingly not in line with your dreams and plans, is a sign that your teen's unique personality is unfolding.
2. Teenaged rudeness is a paradox. It lets you know that your teen is trying desperately to separate from you and that your are the "safe" person who can receive their frustration with not yet being all grown up.
3. One of the ways teens learn about the importance of hard work is by suffering the consequences of their procrastination and laziness.
4. Materialism and self-centeredness are normal during this period of rapid and shifting identity. Just as a pregnant woman focuses inward, adolescents are preoccupied as they give birth to themselves.
5. When teens break the rules, or even the law, it is often because they aren't satisfied with a merely rote knowledge of our ethical system. They want to know if adults mean what they say.
6. Teens getting into hot water provides an excellent opportunity for learning self-reliance: how to solve problems and how to mine difficult circumstances for their benefits.
7. Staying up late is sometimes a teen's shot at independence, and goofing around is a way to ease the stresses of growing up.
8. Finally, limited experimentation with alcohol, physical intimacy, and even drugs teaches teens how to regulate these powerful experiences and keep themselves safe while they are still under your guidance.

"In other words," as the author says in an interview, "teens have to do a lot of dumb stuff in order to get smart."

I read Wendy Mogel's Blessing of a B Minus as a teacher, rather than a parent, of teenagers. It's a wonderful book, one that truly respects teenagers' intellectual and moral capacities and the inherent difficulties of their quest to individuate and develop adult value systems. While The Blessing of a B Minus is primarily a book about how to relate, advise, and discipline, it also points adults towards the opportunities for spiritual and personal growth that arise from parenting (or even working with) adolescents. I found it absorbing and inspiring.

Mogel emphasizes many ideas I wish I could share with the parents of my students. I especially appreciated her discussion of the importance of respecting teenagers' individual personalities, tastes, and strengths. I also liked her emphasis on how work--whether in the form of chores, babysitting, tutoring, or a conventional summer job--can cultivate self-respect and problem-solving ability. Though Mogel includes only a little scientific material on brain function, what she does cite is quite illuminating. Her conclusion that "If you think of your teen as ping-ponging between the ages of five and thirty-five, his behavior won't seem so odd" (22) matches my own experience with this age group, as does her assertion that teenagers often act up towards their parents while simultaneously displaying great maturity at school and in other public situations, because home is a safe place for a person who is ready to be an adult most of the time, but not all of the time, to regress a little.

This book is every bit as wonderful as Mogel's Blessing of a Skinned Knee, and it's written in very much the same spirit. I can't wait to see what Mogel writes next!

As a big fan of Dr. Mogel's previous book (Blessing of a Skinned Knee), I approached this new one with high expectations, and was not disappointed...
Thank you again, Dr. Mogel, for sharing such sage advice -- with humor and compassion. This is truly a delightful read, from start to finish, and as with her first volume, I'll be consulting it frequently -- and recommending to all parents of teens... It's filled with marvelous relevant real-life examples, mixed with Talmudic wisdom and illuminating metaphors that make you realize you are not alone on this parenting journey, with all its trials and tribulations... Dr. Mogel offers sane, level-headed approaches to navigating the teen years, when all societal forces seem to be working against you... Especially as a single parent, I felt like Dr. Mogel is a valued ally... Her credentials are sound, having studied not only psychology, child development, and pertinent Judaic teachings, but also having successfully raised two teen daughters herself -- and, despite all her grounding and training, finding herself as bewildered by these strange rude creatures as most of us who are even less professionally prepared for the onslaught of adolescence... A common refrain among parents these days is, "We would have never gotten away with that behavior when we were that age" -- which is true... But times have changed, and we need new rules, guidelines, parameters, approaches -- that are neither too permissive nor too authoritarian... We're up against ubiquitious videogames (and other "inappropriate" time-wasting entertainment), increasing academic pressures, and a scary economic outlook, not to mention a slew of temptations and dangers that weren't around when we were kids ... Dr. Mogel patiently , and even humorously, walks us through prescriptive scenarios designed to not only reduce family friction and anxieties, but to help reshape our own attitudes so that we won't be constantly despairing about our kids' behaviors ... I can't tell you how many times I recognized my kids -- and myself -- in this book... and I'm sure you will, too... I kept re-purchasing "Skinned Knee" because everyone I lent it to ended up keeping it, and I'm sure the same will happen with "B-minus"... So please do me a personal favor, and go buy your own copy!... You won't regret it!...

Wendy Mogul does it again. Either you'll feel supported as she corroborates your excellent parenting decisions and demeanor, or she will introduce concepts that at first horrify (ok, an exaggeration) but then relieve. Dr. Mogul asks us to have confidence in our teens, to demand of them what the world will once they're out from under our wings, and to put some distance between us and their often offensive and irritating adolescent behavior. She reminds us that they need to be this awful because they're working desperately hard at doing something they really don't want to do: separate from us. And finally, she gives us some tips - some serene and some hilarious (when they are disrespectful, picture them in the floaties or the tutu they wore when they were three) - that have helped us just not take it all so seriously. We have been able to remove ourselves from the painful moments without blowing up, and to be there completely when the moment calls for it. It's great to have tools to know the difference. A must read for parents of teens.
