Whatever! : A down-to-earth guide to parenting teenagers Paperback / softback


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. This completely revised and updated edition of a parenting classic is full of advice to help teenagers, their parents and the rest of the family.

It offers a wealth of sound advice plus tried and tested strategies for every aspect of life with a teen - from alcohol to cyberbullying, sexting to household chores - which you can put into practice immediately.

You'll quickly wonder how you ever managed without this book.
