The Terrible Teens

The Terrible Teens

What Every Parent Needs to Know


Living with teenagers can be more stressful and emotional than anything parents have previously experienced. While there are dozens of books on development in young children, books on adolescent development and how to cope are almost non-existent. Kate Figes redresses the balance. Based on the advice of experts and interviews with parents and their children, this informed and practical analysis of the difficulties young people face growing up today will be essential reading for any parent.
