'You don't understand!' This book is for all those for whom this is an ominously familiar sound, along with the plaintive cries of 'Just leave me alone!' or 'It's not fair, everyone else does it!' - the wails and whines usually accompanied by slamming doors, snarls and sulks. It is full of invaluable insights and advice for parents and long-suffering siblings. It is the ultimate survival guide to the teenage years - a time of life that most adults have selectively erased from their minds...Chapters deal with understanding what is happening to the teenage child (the wild hormones and intense emotions of puberty), how to cope with the delicate issues of sex and relationships, and the danger zones of drug and alcohol abuse. Comprehensive and reassuring, 13 to 19 deals with all the problems of teenage life. The book offers guidance on how to stay in control, how to cope with the ups and downs of the teenage years, and what to do when things get out of hand. Armed with this book's sound advice - validated by the author's own experiences as a mother of six - parents will know when to say 'No!' and, just as important, when finally to let go.

More than this, though, the book reveals how to turn the teenage years into a rewarding experience for teenagers and parents alike.
