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.
