Adding to the growing literature on intergenerational and lifespan communication, Talking Adolescence is the first substantive volume devoted to young people.

The popular RTÉ series Teens in the Wild showed David Coleman doing what he does best: taking families who were locked in conflict and turning things around. It wasn't always easy, but the results were dramatic, moving and inspiring. The key to a successful journey through adolescence centres on the recognition that parenting styles have to develop and progress through this period. In Parenting is Child's Play: The Teenage Years, David Coleman explains why adolescence gets such a bad press and, reassuringly, why parents don't have to dread it. Even if affection, respect and cooperation seem to be replaced by contempt, rejection and recalcitrance, there is an explanation for these changes and they don't have to cause irreparable damage. Parenting is Child's Play: The Teenage Years provides key information about what is going on with your child, and is brimming with helpful advice and down-to-earth strategies. For parents supporting their children on one of the most important journeys they'll ever undertake - the journey from childhood to adulthood - it is essential reading.

Repackaged and updated. Understanding the six different phases of the teenage years. According to leading Australian parent educators Ken and Elizabeth Mellor, parents need to stay very involved, not 'step back', as their children become teenagers-because teenagers in the early to middle teen years actually want to be controlled, despite what they might say! As well as parental involvement, teenagers need attention to safety, clear expectations and limits, and for their parents to understand what is happening. these are the cornerstones of the approach the Mellors recommend. this updated edition of their successful guide includes new information on significant issues for parents: cyber bullying, pornography, teen suicide, social media and mentoring. the core of their book is an analysis of the six distinct stages of the teenage years. Parents find that knowing which stage their child is in, and what their child needs at that particular stage, helps them greatly. the six stages are: 1. the baby (thirteen-year-olds) 2. the dissenter (fourteen-year-olds) 3. the fledgling (fifteen-year-olds) 4. the sweet and sour (sixteen-year-olds) 5. the romantic (seventeen-year-olds) 6. the world leader (eighteen- to twenty-one-year-olds) Among the book's other key features are: Each stage requires specific responses from parents that rarely work for the other stages; teenagers need lots of time and attention in the early to middle years, particularly if they 'slip back' to more infantile behaviour; Parents need to be aware of the more grown-up aspects of their teenagers' development so they can encourage this, even in the face of their childrens' emotional immaturity; Parents and teachers need to read any signs of trouble in a teenager correctly-and the Mellors include a chart, the Rainbow Alert Scale, to help with this important task.

Imagine that there is a medication you could administer to your teens that would help regulate their moods, increase their sense of trust, and improve their overall brain function. Imagine, moreover, that it's free, has no negative side effects, and helps to boost the immune system. And it's available in an unlimited supply. It sounds too good to be true, but in You're Ruining My Life! Jennifer Kolari shows how her unique approach to parenting can have all these effects and more. Kolari's CALM technique is based on the therapeutic strategy of mirroring . Used regularly, it can strengthen the parent-child bond and build emotional independence. Kolari provides information, advice, sample conversations, and anecdotal examples to show how parents can turn what they have learned into everyday practices that help them to reconnect with their teens so they can spend more time enjoying each other--and less time at war.
