Offering parents a fresh interpretation of adolescence-that period of growth that is too often misunderstood as a phase to be dreaded instead of enjoyed-Riera recommends some unexpected, yet ultimately successful approaches to parenting. With an unusual appreciation for this stage of life, Riera channels his unpatronizing approach and two decades of experience working with teens into this optimistic and indispensable handbook.

If your teenagers are driving you crazy, Michael Riera has the answers. In this revised and updated edition of Uncommon Sense for Parents with Teenagers, veteran educator Riera takes an in-depth look at the most common issues facing parents and teens: alcohol and drugs, academics, sex and dating, divorce, sports, and extracurricular activities. He also tackles kids' newest challenges: text messaging and the Internet, changing driver's license requirements, fad diets and exercise, and more.
