Overview

It might be hard to take, but parents need to face the facts—their teens think that they're stupid. Every parent will have to come to grips with that reality sooner or later, and Hayley DiMarco is ready to help them learn how to communicate with their kids to show them that their parents aren't so stupid after all.
Many parents think that they have to be their teen's best friend or talk or dress like them so they'll be more "cool" in their teen's eyes. But that's certainly not the answer, says Hayley. After years of talking to teens, she knows how teens think and what their world is like, making her the perfect guide for frustrated parents who want to connect with their kids. This practical and straightforward book tells parents what their teens are thinking and feeling and gives great advice on how to improve the relationship while still being the adult.
