Summary

Summary

Parenting teenagers can be notoriously difficult and the prospect of children reaching that stage is enough to make many parents anxious. This book, which is practical and good humored, is designed to help parents cope with the sulks, smells, dirty dishes and slamming doors of the teenage years. After a discussion of adolescence, it covers the following topics: communication, conflict, school, health, friends and socialising, teenagers and disability, becoming independent, family life, sex, drugs, alcohol and smoking, and sources of help. By helping parents understand what is happening in their teenager's world this book helps keep lines of communication open and will ease the passage of these difficult years.
