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

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Truly helpful in reframing my POV and understanding my teen better 2 juillet 2013
Par A. Rosendin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A friend of mine (also with a teen daughter) recommended this book. I tried the Kindle sample, read the first two pages, welled up in relief that someone was going through the EXACT same situations/thoughts/emotions and promptly hit "BUY". Though the book is peppered with Judaic teachings it was still very relevant for me (I am Agnostic). The biggest take-away for me is "don't take it personally". My husband kept telling me this all along, but he's not a licensed clinical psychologist or child expert so..... :)

I think for mothers it is a bit more challenging given we, in most cases, carry our children for 9 months and dedicate many of the formative years providing the primary care and nourishment. For me it's difficult to step back because I LOVE to nurture my family. That I have to step back and realize my teenage daughter is not slighting me on purpose (well, maybe sometimes, who knows), but is pushing back from me to make it easier on HER to separate herself and make the eventual leap out of the nest was a lightning bolt to my brain. This theme - we hurt the ones we love the most because we feel safest expressing our true selves with them - came up time and time again. Once I thought of it more, I realized I did the exact same thing as an adolescent and wished my mother were alive so I could kiss her feet.

I'm by no means "cured" of my mother hen-ness or strong desire to nurture (blame that on the Italian genes), but now I can take a step back and realize - it's not personal, it's the business of my once dependent little chick chick learning to become her own young woman. By the way..... Tom Hanks in You've Got Mail is right... "The Godfather is the I Ching. The Godfather is the sum of all wisdom. The Godfather is the answer to any question...... 'It's not personal, it's business. It's not personal it's business.' Recite that to yourself every time you feel you're losing your nerve."

This is well worth the purchase and read and re-read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent advice that helped me considerably, but for this non-Jew, the Jewish teachings were a distraction. 17 janvier 2014
Par S. Wood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book and have used Ms. Mogel's advice extensively since first picking it up. The book is well organized and the author brings her advice to life by using ample examples of real life situations that might occur for you and your teen and how to deal with them. She also posits many hypothetical conversations that help you figure out better ways to communicate with your teen. I found the author to be open, pragmatic, sensitive and full of good humor.

The only downside for me was that unlike other non-Jewish reviewers (I am a spiritual person who does not follow any organized religion), the Jewish teachings in this book were a distraction for me. I spent a great deal of time skimming over them in the book. I realize that this book was written for Jews so I won't belabor this point, but I bought this book based on the many reviews of non-Jews who said that the Jewish teachings did not get in the way for them. They did for me.

Par IHRmom - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just What I Needed 7 juillet 2013
Par genxm23 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was searching for a book that would answer some of my questions about raising teens. I had read Wendy Mogel's other book about raising resilient children and loved it and hadn't realized she had written another book on a similar topic, but for teens. This book was laugh out loud funny, respectful, and I could find plenty of examples that would suit my own life. From the day I read it, I started changing my attitude about certain things and it actually made me feel better about the whole teenage parenting process.I also really like the Jewish principles behind her reasoning, as I am Jewish myself and there aren't many books written from this perspective. Although I don't think you have to be Jewish to find this book a valuable addition to any parenting bookshelf.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding Guide to Raising Teens w/Love, Respect, Patience! 14 novembre 2010
Par Jerald Lazar - Publié sur Amazon.com

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!...
