From the authors of The Princess Bitchface Syndrome 2.0 and The Prince Boofhead Syndrome comes this essential guide for how to survive (and thrive) while living with your adolescents.

Parenting teenagers of this generation requires a new skill set.

Adolescence is one of the most risky growth and developmental periods for our children. Like never before, we need parents, carers and other adults to have the skills, knowledge and strategies to provide this generation’s young people with the love, stability and routine that they need.

From bestselling authors Michael Carr-Gregg and Elly Robinson comes this fully revised and updated edition of the original bestselling guide to learning how to survive – and thrive – with your adolescents. It contains all the thorny issues that confront families with teenagers, such as technology, social media, risky behaviours, school and study problems, and much more.

Full of practical strategies for everyday survival, and crammed with the latest research findings, this indispensable guide will teach you how to communicate effectively with young people, defuse family conflict, set limits, avoid common mistakes, and keep the stress of parenting at bay.
