Hello Staci:

Whenever I see "parenting" and "teenagers" in the same sentence, I take a second look.  By way of quick introduction, I am Becky Jones' (Disability Concerns/Safe Church) father - so I have lived experience with teens (I've also been a middle school principal for over 15 years - which should qualify me as a bit of an expert).  I too am always interested in what resources parents of adolescents are looking for, as my (late) wife and I wrote a book on parenting (Great Parenting Skills [GPS] for Navigating Your Kid's Personality) and I present workshops on parenting in Ontario and parts of the U.S.  (One of my popular workshops is entitled "Surviving Your Adolescents: How to Manage and Let Go of your 13-18 Year Olds".)  So, I wanted to bring those resources to your attention should parents be looking for information on parenting based on temperament (personality). Would love to continue the conversation with you.
