Teenage as a Second Language: A Parent's Guide to Becoming Bilingual

What are you to do when your cheerful, friendly family members morph overnight into sarcastic, sullen, teens? 
How can you get through to these hormonally challenged strangers when all you get in return are sighs and eyerolls? 

Thankfully, this book reveals the groundbreaking strategies you can use to maintain good communication, healthy interaction, and strong connections to your teen, no matter how rocky the road to puberty becomes. You'll learn how to:
  • Let your teens help set the rules--and the consequences for breaking them
  • Realize that "me, me, me!" is actually age-appropriate
  • Put honesty above all else
  • Try not to criticize, judge, or become angry
Based on the latest research, this book works as a Rosetta Stone to help you hear what your kids are really saying--and makes sure nothing is lost in translation!
