Read an Excerpt

There is no deeper love than that of a parent for a child, and it is no surprise that such love is given in all its purity, and generally without bounds. What is a surprise is how quickly this one small child, once your staunchest supporter, begins to pull away from you as adolescence approaches. This desperate struggle toward independence is inevitable, and yet its vengeance is unexpected, leaving heartache and turmoil in its path. Welcome to the mysterious, dramatic and chaotic world of your teenager! It is during this time that parents must give their children safe harbor, even from themselves, and wait patiently until their adolescents re-establish equilibrium and emerge as fully grown adults.
We believe that every child has the right to childhood happiness. But, they are not entitled to this right without some concessions, bound by societal rules and regulations and the structure of parental guidance. Love is simply not enough. Parenting a teenager is serious business, and, as such, cannot be left to serendipity.
The advice and instruction offered in this book, Drama Queens and Tough Guys: A Manual for Parents of Teens, is meant to offer you a mooring until the seas of teenage rebelliousness and emotions quiet down. These are tumultuous times, and we want to reassure you that, like everything, they will pass.
We know that there are some days when you feel like you barely holding on. As parents, you can expect to encounter trying times, some worse than others, during these next several years, Depending on the personality traits of your child, you can almost predict the degree of upheaval that may shift your life into overdrive. If your child has always been more easygoing and flexible, he or she will probably experience fewer difficulties in these teen years than a child who has always been headstrong and rebellious. Still, the rare child escapes the turbulence of adolescence. Many parents will agree that they feel as though they are living in a nightmare, having gone to sleep the guardian of a sweet, innocent, enthusiastic and familiar boy or girl, and awakening to a barely recognizable, sullen and disrespectful, overgrown, unruly stranger.
