Surviving Adolescents is a clear and very down-to-earth manual for parents, which draws on Michael Carr-Gregg's wealth of experience and wisdom.It has advice on all the thorny issues that confront families with teenagers - sexuality, risky behaviours, laziness, school and study problems, and much more.It's full of practical strategies for everyday survival, including:
·communicating effectively with young people
·defusing family conflict
·setting limits
·avoiding common mistakes like fighting over things that don't matter
·keeping the stress of parenting at bay

Few 21st-century parents have the time to read weighty volumes on adolescent development. Surviving Adolescents is the perfect solution: concise, human, reassuring and with a wry humour.
It is illustrated throughout with poignant cartoons by Ron Tandberg.
