Get Out of My Life
- But First Can You Drive me and Cheryl to the Mall?
- By: Anthony E. Wolf
- Narrated by: Anthony E. Wolf
- Length: 2 hrs and 36 mins
In 1991, the first edition of Get Out of My Life became an enormous success, selling over 300,000 copies. The words of Dr. Wolf were so on target that parents wondered if he had placed tape recorders around their homes. But the world has not stood still - in fact, it is changing faster than ever. And while the classic struggles between parents and teenagers still remain, societal changes have brought about many new ones that parents of earlier generations never dreamed of.

Required Reading for Parents of Teenagers
Where does Get Out of My Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Anthony Wolf understands teenagers. What did I get out of this book? I learned (or was reminded) that parenting is "a job, it is only a job." Take nothing personally about being a parent of a teenager. They will often treat you like rubbish (to put it kindly) and that is their job to do just that. Adolescence is often the worst time in a person's life and a teenager needs to be able to express that. Anger is like poison and remaining calm is the antidote to 99% of situations. I love this book. If there was ever an expert on teens, it is Anthony Wolf.
