Audible Editor Reviews

The driving theme of Surviving Adolescents is for parents to remain calm and keep their cool. Michael Carr-Gregg, a psychologist specializing in teenagers, reminds us of the vast mental and physical changes that young people go through; these can be confusing and stressful and he repeatedly states the importance of having a calm, loving adult to guide them in their growth. From adolescence to adulthood our brains physically alter. Scientific facts like these are touched on but the focus here is down-to-earth parenting for 21st-century adults, colored with anecdotes and light-hearted quotes about no longer being a child but not quite being an adult. Richard Aspel performs the audiobook with a steady engaging diction and calmness, emphasizing the author's message.

Publisher's Summary

Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg is a leading authority on teenage behavior. Surviving Adolescents is the sensible, sanity-saving guide every household needs.

Young people today enter puberty earlier than ever before and leave home later. The good news is that teenagers aren't impossible to live with, especially if parents adopt the common-sense strategies set out in this book.

Surviving Adolescents is a clear and very down-to-earth manual, drawing on Dr. Carr-Gregg's wealth of experience and wisdom. It has advice on all the thorny issues that confront families with teenagers - sexuality, risky behaviors, laziness, school and study problems, and much more. And it is full of practical tips for everyday survival, including: communicating effectively with young people, defusing family conflict, setting limits, keeping the stress of parenting at bay, and avoiding common mistakes like fighting over things that don't matter.

What the Critics Say

"Calling this a 'concise guide to surviving daily life with adolescents,' the author, an authority on teenagers, provides an information-packed audio. His broad perspective will empower parents by encouraging them to stand back from the conflicts and negativity of raising teenagers and realize they're not alone. With insightful quotations and findings from developmental psychology, he encourages one to believe that the issues can be grasped and that one can prevent one's teenagers from being murdered, committed involuntarily, or sent to prison. The charming Richard Aspel is a reassuring narrator who is calming and steadying. He seems to understand the parent's dilemma as well as he does the author's ideas and scholarship. This outstanding parenting audio, full of hope and encouragement, transcends the genre." (AudioFile)
