Mike Linderman wrestles cattle at the crack of dawn, then spends his days working with America's most troubled teens before coming home at night to three healthy teens of his own. Where so many other therapists can only offer futile advice to struggling parents, Linderman has mastered a blend of down home honesty and military-like discipline - not to mention a layer of trust and love very rarely found in the therapist's office. Most of the teens Linderman treats are angry, abused, violent, and dangerous - they are children without hope. He has an extraordinary success rate with these teens, helping them turn their lives around and earning him the nickname "the Teen Whisperer." Centering on the five primary needs of teens (Survival, Fun, Freedom, Power, and Belonging), together with the 3 core values honesty, truth and trust, his approach demonstrates the importance each of these concepts plays in teen's family life and the negative impact that occurs when a family is incapable of fulfilling these needs. Here, he provides concrete steps that parents can take to reconnect with their teens as they work together to create a stronger relationship.
