All parents eventually face that terrifying moment when their beautiful, loving, cheerfully obedient child disappears and a teenager takes his or her place. Coping with the teen years can be a painful and frustrating experience for many parents. It can even, given the very real dangers like drug addiction and AIDS facing today's young people, be frightening. Many parents of teens discover that their old parenting skills no longer work; that their love and concern don't seem to "register" with their child. Many despair at the loss of joy and happiness from their homes.

Experienced therapist Larry Bauman has worked with more than 100 teenagers and their families to help resolve the common problems of the teen years. Now, in The Ten Most Troublesome Teenage Problem he offers hope, insight, and practical, proven solutions for any parent who has ever worried that a teenage child is headed down the wrong path.

Dr. Bauman shows parents the common threads running through parent-teen relationships-and how recognizing and understanding them is the first step to establishing effective communication. He reassures parents that their teen's behavior is part of their natural, if sometimes awkward, metamorphosis into an adult, and gives useful advice on how to guide their child's growth in a positive direction. And he explains how, through "creative synthesis", parents can begin to recognize the ways in which they, too, need to grow and change in order to build a loving, trusting, livable with their maturing child.

Full of wisdom, specific advice, and illuminating family stories, The Ten Most Troublesome Teenage Problems gives parents the tools they need to reach their teenage child-and theencouragement that doing so can actually be one of life's most rewarding experiences.
