Tough Guys and Drama Queens Kit:

Parents of preteens intuitively know that no matter how good their kids are, there is turbulence ahead. Many feel lost and unprepared as they watch the damaging effects of culture collide with their child’s growing pains and raging hormones.
For over 35 years Mark Gregston has lived and worked with struggling teens and knows what it takes to reach them. He says, “A parent’s success has little to do with either the validity of their words or their intent as messengers; it’s more about how they approach their child and engage with them.”

Foundational and practical, Tough Guys and Drama Queens DVD-Based Study answers the questions that parents are asking, helping them become the parents their children need them to be.
DVD Kit includes:
- 9 teaching videos featuring author Mark Gregston

Written from the crucible of experience, Tough Guys and Drama Queens was written to be the book that gives answers to the questions that parents are asking. It’s the voice of a reassuring friend who comes along side and prepares them for the bumpy ride. It’s the wise perspective that works.
