Why do teenagers behave as they do and how, as a parent, can you help them through the struggles of teenagehood and still maintain a good relationship with them? Two psychologists and a youth officer team up to help show parents how best to deal with problems from school bullying to drugs, via sex, eating disorders and more mundane questions such as how to get a conversation out of them. This book is the perfect complement to "How Teenagers Think".
