How to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish

Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish examine the inevitable stresses faced by parents of teenagers. Through role play and discussion, they show how to keep communication open with rebellious offspring, how to let go gracefully and yet retain respect and some degree of co-operation throughout these difficult years.


'No peace-loving parent should be without a copy.'

'A real find…What Faber and Mazlish have to offer is a wealth of specific solutions to difficult situations and challenging behaviour, which they encourage readers to tailor to their own personality.'
