Synopsis

Whatever! A Down-to-Earth Guide to Parenting Teenagers by Gill Hines, Alison Baverstock

Do you find bringing up teenagers more of a pain than a pleasure? Raising teenagers can test parental love to breaking point, particularly if you have previously enjoyed a close and loving relationship. The child whose every joy and sadness you shared has suddenly become taller than you, louder than you, with an inside knowledge of all your failings - and a sudden urge to point them out. What's more, this newly arrived creature may spend half their life glued to a gadget, talk and dress in a way you find alien and respond to all queries with a grunt or a dismissal - whilst expecting ever-greater financial hand-outs. Help is however at hand.

Reviews

Gill Hines and Alison Baverstock have a light touch, even when they're dealing with serious issues. Their suggestions are easy to read, and simple to put into practice.--Jacqueline Wilson, OBE Masses of practical ideas about how to help teenagers feel good about themselves, how to keep family communications open and how to deal with problems, from parties to swearing.--Independent This could just be the book that restores your sanity.--The Daily Mail All power to these two authors. There's a real understanding of young people and practical advice, such as what you can and cannot control in your teenager's life. This book offers the comfort of self-recognition, and assurance that others must be having the same experiences. A good book for parents and, perhaps, for form tutors, especially those with no children of their own.--Times Educational Supplement
