At Last! A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding Teens

 

Hormones. Rebellion. Moodiness. Peer pressure. No parent can be fully prepared for all the challenges associated with adolescence.

 

Fortunately, The Teen Owner’s Manual is here to answer your most pressing questions: How can I teach my teenager to make smart decisions? How do I keep her safe on the Web? How do I get him to communicate? How and when should I talk to her about sex? Whatever your concerns, you’ll find the answers right here—courtesy of parenting author Sarah Jordan and adolescent medicine specialist Dr. Janice Hillman.

Synopsis:

The Baby Owner's Manual has taught more than 350,000 readers how to operate their newborns and infants. But what happens when your adorable bundle of joy morphs into a strange, snarling, hormone-fueled adolescent?

In The Teen Owner's Manual, Sarah Jordan and Dr. Janice Hillman show how to navigate every stage of raising adolescents, from the first signs of puberty to the day your children leave the nest. Along the way, you'll learn how to have The Sex Talk, how to handle peer pressure, and techniques for managing moodiness. You'll even discover ways to get a monosyllabic teen to speak in full sentences-and maybe even take out the trash.

Illustrated in the trademark techy style of Quirk's Owner s Manual series (more than 1,000,000 books sold worldwide), The Teen Owner's Manual is the perfect resource for frazzled parents everywhere.

Synopsis:

Provides advice and tips for parenting teenagers, tackling such topics as puberty, academic problems, bullies, teenage sex and dating, and parent-child communication.
