Teenagers Suck: What to do when missed curfews, texting, and "Mom, can I have the keys" make you miserable by Joanne Kimes, Rebecca Rutledge, R.J. Colleary

Moodswings? Check.
Eye rolls? Check.
Slamming doors and easily annoyed teens? Check. Check.

Let's face it: Teenagers Suck. Tacklers of Teenage Terrors R.J. Colleary and Joanne Kimes take you on a humorous but helpful ride through teenage troubles, such as how to pick your battles (do you ignore or forbid the bellybutton ring and lower back tattoo?); tackle the oh-so-uncomfortable but very important topic of teen sex; and address peer pressure (because their friends are doing way worse things than jumping off that proverbial bridge!).

With an equal dose of empathy and humor, Colleary and Kimes will expertly guide parents through this traumatic, tender, and (dare we say it) sometimes terrific part of raising kids.
