“Why do you always have to be at me about stuff when I’m in the middle of doing something?”

“You don’t have to yell at me! Everything has to be exactly when you want it! I hate this house!”

Is there any aspect of parenting more frustrating than when even the simplest conversation with your teenager quickly deteriorates into a take-no-prisoners war? Bestselling author Anthony E. Wolf sympathizes, and in his new book he provides hope, humor, and practical tips for dealing with the everyday challenges of raising teens in the twenty-first century.

I’d Listen to My Parents if They’d Just Shut Up will help you understand who your teenagers really are under all the attitude, and what new rules apply to successfully communicating with them in today’s constantly evolving world of the Internet, electronics, and social media. A book designed to make life with your teenage child a significantly more enjoyable experience, I’d Listen to My Parents if They’d Just Shut Up offers specific scenarios to illustrate which responses will work and which ones are doomed to failure the next time your thirteen-to-nineteen-year-old refuses to listen or won’t take “no” for an answer.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Where does Anthony Wolf come up with his wonderful titles? First, it was Mom, Jason's Breathing on Me! ; then Get Out of My Life, but First Could You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall? and now this. Fortunately, Wolf's talents for a fine-tuned ear don't stop at the cover. As a clinical psychologist, he grapples every day with the complexities of parent/child communications. I'd Listen to My Parents If They'd Just Shut Up, his latest ventures in these perpetually stormy waters, draws on that experience with its winningly specific advice on responding to unresponsive teens. Just the roll-call of issues discussed in this useful tome will convince you of its pertinence: family interactions; curfews and rules; sex, drugs, alcohol, and other forms of risk taking; schoolwork; social networks and videogames; and character development. A boon for puzzled parents.
