Teenagers Suck: What to do when missed curfews, texting, and "Mom, can I have the keys" make you miserable
by Joanne Kimes, R.J. Colleary, with Rebecca Rutledge, Ph.D.

Published by Adams Media

Is it any wonder . . .

Most people go through mid-life crises when their kids are teenagers?

Fewer parents are grounding their teenager -- to avoid being stuck at home with them?

So many moms and dads downgrade to one-bedroom condos once their teens graduate from high school?

Mood swings? Check. Eye rolls? Check.  Slamming doors and easily annoyed teens? Check. Check.

Let's face it: Teenagers Suck. In this emergency parenting guide, Joanne Kimes and R.J. Colleary take you on a humorous but helpful ride through teenage troubles, and teach you how to:
  • Pick your battles (Do you ignore or forbid the bellybutton ring and lower back tattoo?)
  • Handle the Clash of the Curfew
  • Talk to your teen when he's constantly text messaging
  • Tackle the oh-so uncomfortable but very important question of teen sex
  • Address peer pressure (Because their friends are doing way worse things than jumping off that proverbial bridge!)
With an equal dose of empathy and humor, Kimes and Colleary expertly guide you through this traumatic, tender, and (dare we say it) sometimes terrific part of raising kids.
