    Take out Your Nose Ring, Honey, We're Going to Grandma's: Hanging In, Holding On and Letting Go of Your Teen

    I am the grandmother of two teenagers whom I love but who sometimes drive me crazy. Since I act as their parent, I experience all the stuff that regular parents go through, that I went through years ago only it seemed quite different then. It is so great to hear from other parents who share similar experiences with teens as well as the confusion and emotional ups and downs that go with parenting them. I really needed to be reminded that 'teens are not a disease.' Sometimes it is too easy to throw up your hands and give up rather that try to understand. These personal essays have helped me see my teens as people who are juggling lots of overwhelming stuff and I need to be aware of this to help them get through it successfully. This book makes you aware and provides new ways to look compassionately at the universal problem we parents face.

    Take out Your Nose Ring, Honey, We're Going to Grandma's: Hanging In, Holding On and Letting Go of Your Teen

    To be a parent of a teen today is to ride a roller coaster of raging hormones. As a result, it sometimes seems nearly impossible to understand what they're going through, what they want and need, and how to respond to it all. One minute they're pushing you away; the next, they're pushing the envelope with their risky behaviors. This leaves parents confused, pulling out their hair, wondering when to hang in, hold on, or let go. What makes this collection of warm, funny, and inspirational real-life essays by parents of teens so compelling is that it provides much-needed insight and support in this area. How you can influence your teens without interfering with their finding their own identity. How you can help them feel safe and secure, knowing their family is their anchor, even as they explore new territory. It shows you CAN understnad and reconnect with them as you ride this coaster together. And, most importantly, it challenges negative teen stereotypes and reassures you that 'teens are NOT a disease.' Cooke and Kendrick, who are both personal and professional teen experts, have created a book that is both informative and useful for anyone who deals with teens - from parents to grandparents to teachers, and even teen themselves - with or without nose rings. I heartily recommend this book!

    Finally, Something positive about teenagers!

    Finally, a book that does not present a doomsday attitude towards teens! My oldest child is twelve and all I ever hear from friends with teens is 'just wait, your nightmare will begin soon'. I hate to feel this way, as though it is a given that these next 7 years will be awful. I know they will be challenging, mine certainly were. But there is hope in this book and practical solutions that any parent can incorporate into their daily lives. After reading this book I feel encouraged rather than discouraged. The authors present real life situations that make the reader feel like they are not alone in this 'world of adolesence'. Sometimes it is the day to day things you need help with and not advice on every horrible thing that might happen. This book covers it all in a way everyone can relate to. Thank you so much for a positive book on teens. I look forward to another one!

    Take out Your Nose Ring, Honey, We're Going to Grandma's: Hanging In, Holding On and Letting Go of Your Teen

    Being the parent of a teen today is anything but easy. There are raging hormones, risk-taking behaviors, and their fighting to be adult-independent before they're ready. Sometimes it seems nearly impossible to know when to hang in, hold on, or let go. But this collection of inspirational, often funny, essays by other parents of teens provides important and much-needed insight and support. It also reminds us to look at our teens as the struggling human beings they are, rather than the negative stereotypes they often seem to be. The message is loud and clear that 'teens are NOT a disease.' Cooke and Kendrick, both personal and professional teen experts, contribute their experience and wisdom to make this book a handy resource as well. The clever and knowing title says it all. This is a must-read.

    Take out Your Nose Ring, Honey, We're Going to Grandma's: Hanging In, Holding On and Letting Go of Your Teen

    Thank you for the refreshing look at teens and living with them. Communicating with and understanding people in general is tough but with teens it is especially hard. As a parent, you feel you're not doing anything right. Well, you're not alone. This book has some good insight into what is going on and how to handle it. Besides it is Chicken-Soup inspiring to read
