Your confidence as a parent will only work properly when you know how your history, attitudes and behaviours really influence the teenager that has to live with you. This book will help you understand: * the most common pitfalls of parenting * the role of rules, regulations and rows * teenagers' relationships with each other * the differences between girls and boys that impact on their teenage years It's time not just to wonder about your child growing up but to actively get involved in the excitement of it too. In doing so, and in learning about yourself, you will figure out how to get the best out of your teenager and enjoy these years together.
