A helpful guilde for parents and others relating to teensagers.

"Teenagers! A Bewildered Parent's Guide takes a revealing look at the world of the contemporary teenager.  With wisdom, understanding and humor, author Elizabeth Caldwell explains what it is like to be a teenager in today's turbulent times.  Ms. Caldwell discusses the problems teens have coming to terms with issues like authority, direction, choice, freedom, communication and relationships and offers illuminating and insightful examples of how teenagers act out their growing pains.

"Teenagers! A Bewildered Parent's Guide" is unique because it was written by a parent and endorsed by teens and parents alike.  Elizabeth Caldwell raised her son as a single parent and learned how to listen so he and his friends would speak.  She does not preach, cajole or tell parents how to raise their kids.  Instead, she helps parents understand their kids.

A teenager is a child turning into something resembling an adult. This is not an easy transition. For teenagers and parents alike, it is a difficult, challenging and bewildering metamorphosis. The successful passage is usually an occasion for everyone involved to celebrate their liberation.

"What's going on?" your teenager wonders. "I'm big now. I've got an adult's body. I'm strong. I know every-thing I need to know to be a grown up. Nothing can go wrong. So why does everyone tell me I can't or shouldn't? I know more than they ever will!"

"What's going on?" parents mutter. "This kid tihnks he knows everything at the age of someteen. ...She hasn't been around; she doesn't have the experience to know which end is up. She'll be lucky if she ever knows anything!...They think the world is some garden of Eden and that they are the center of the universe...He thinks he can march out and boss the world around just because he is beginning to feel his hormones."

Professional Reviews

The text is extraordinarily fresh and a heart-to-heart conversation among parents. The book creates a feeling of optimism and stimulates the reader to think about how to handle disturbing situations. I highly recommend this guide to all adults who are interested in young people and who want to make headway with them.-Juhani Mattila, M.D> Psychiatrist, Psychoanalyst, Helsinki, Finland.

Cpmmon Sensical
Full of common-sense advice. I read it with my teen son who felt it was "right on the mark!"-Prema Mathai-Davis, National Executive D irector, Y.W.C.A. of the U.S.A.

Helpful Guide
A very helpful guide for parents and others attempting to relate to teenagers. It will help many to navigate the often choppy waters and uncertain currents of the teen years.-Denise A Jacobson, Case Manager, Career Beginnings, Hartford Consortium for Higher Education
