From the Publisher
Most of the issues that parents of teenagers face have already tested many other parents, and this book gives the reader the opportunity to learn from their experience and wisdom. The author conducted many interviews with parents who have already successfully navigated the teenage years. This book provides down-to-earth, practical advice and real-life examples from Australian parents who have already successfully guided their children through the teenage years. The contents include alcohol and parties, boyfriends, girlfriends and sexual relationships, as well as maintaining good communication between parents and teenagers. It is a book that is easy to dip into when needed, and is written in the words of actual parents. It is definitely not another parenting manual written by an 'expert', but more like a dependable, wise friend in a book!
