Being an adolescent girl is no walk in the park… especially for her parents. Fortunately, Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg's audiobook is just about as gutsy as a teenager. He offers up solutions for keeping these daughters acting their ages instead of like full-blown adults. Moreover, he helps frustrated parents understand the body chemistry behind their daughters' volatility. Australian actor Richard Aspel performs The Princess Bitchface Syndrome with appropriate force. His direct tone makes Carr-Gregg's strategies digestible and the scientific explanations approachable. Meanwhile, Aspel's subtle Australian accent makes for easy listening.
This is a must-listen for every parent with an adolescent daughter, It's an entertaining and informative audiobook from a leading authority on teenage behavior, Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg, who regularly appears on television.
In this hard-hitting book, Michael Carr-Gregg focuses on the special trials of raising adolescent girls today: what to do when your previously quiet, loving daughter becomes a restless, rebellious stranger who behaves like a responsible adult one day and a vampish brat the next. Part of the problem is that girls are becoming sexualized earlier, and their physical development is shooting ahead of their cognitive capacities. By the time they turn 13, they look like they're ready for anything - but they're not. Yet, argues Carr-Gregg, many parents are surrendering their authority and allowing their daughters to be fast-tracked into pseudo-adulthood. We appear to be losing it when it comes to parenting our girls, and it's time to grab back the reins.
