Coping with the teen years can be painful and frustrating for parents and child alike. Many parents of teens discover that their parenting skills no longer work, that their love and concern don't seem to "register" with their child.

If you are worried that your teenager may be headed down the wrong path or if you just want some sensible guidance on how to cope with the challenges of the teen years, The Ten Most Troublesome Teen-age Problems offers hope, insight, and practical, proven solutions.

Psychologist Lawrence Bauman shares his insights into the common problems parents encounter and shows what you can do to solve them. He explains how your teen's troubling behavior is part of a natural metamorphosis into adulthood, and he gives useful advice on guiding that change in a positive direction. He also shows how you can both resolve specific conflicts with your child and build a loving, trusting, mutually respectful relationship.
