Every parent wants to and should have deeper and more meaningful discussions with their preteens, middle graders and teenagers.How can this happen?
This booklet – 144 Discussions That Every Parent Should Have with Their Middle Graders and Teenagers is meant to facilitate unforced conversations between parents and their children – preteen and teenagers.
This booklet works best when accompanied with the Middle Grade adventure novel – The Giant Forest.
But it can also work as a stand alone volume of own.
However, when a parent read together – not necessarily sitting next to one another – but on the same schedule, the story of The Giant Forest becomes a common interest between the parent, grandparent and child/ren.
While talking about the book, the plot, the twists and turns, the discussion questions fit very naturally into the conversation – perhaps at meal time or while driving too and from school or some extra curricular event.
What parent doesn’t want to know if their child/ren are feeling unloved, teased by their friends or have themselves become a bully?
This book is a list of questions parents would love to ask and get answers from with their child/ren.
Reader beware – your children will want to know you answers, too.What better way to get your children to talk and listen than to show them by openly sharing and pausing long enough to really listen to them.
Enjoy a better relationship with your children after spending time in this book and its companion volume – The Giant Forest – also available here on Amazon.

About the Author
Bill Belew and his daughter, Mia, are co-authors of this book.
Mia is 11-years old. She is an avid reader who wanted more than she could find on the shelves at her school and local public library.
Bill is not 11-years old. Nearly 6X that age. No kidding.
Mia loves history and words and reading and stories.
Bill loves to do things that make Mia and her mother … and her two brothers happy.
Mia does not aspire to be a best-selling author. Well not yet at least.
Bill does aspire to being read, to making a difference in the lives of their readers.
Mia is still a student, at a jr high/high school in Silicon Valley, CA.
Bill has always been a teacher, professor – Japan, Russia, China, India and the US.
Their book is already being read in the US, Uganda and Nigeria. Camp bookstores and libraries are interested in placing their book.
This collaboration was a highlight for Bill. For Mia … it's another book to read and share with friends.
