Andrew Fuller’s new book Tricky Teens provides parents with a step-by-step guide to understanding what is really going on in the minds of their teenagers - and why; handling common conflict situations faced by every family with a teenager and successfully navigating common difficulties; creating a relatively peaceful happy family environment; and raising your teens so that they can successfully leave home, get a job and become wonderful adults.

A clinical psychologist, Andrew has spent years helping parents understand and assist their tricky teens to safely navigate adolescence. He says that the key to understanding teenagers is to realise that their behaviour is caused by two things: the routines and habits that are ingrained in their lives and their families’ lives; and the neurochemicals and hormones washing around in that massive soup bowl called their brains. Learning how to parent in ways that manage the heady heights and deep troughs of moods and acts caused by these neurochemicals is life saving and sanity preserving.

Tricky Teens is divided into four sections:

1. Neurochemistry and Habit: What really causes tricky teen behaviours

2. Overcoming Common Problems: helping teens successfully navigate common
problems such as anxiety, arguments, computer addiction, the opposite sex, reclusive
teenagers, sibling conflict, suicide prevention, zombies and zits

3. Changing patterns: A six-week program for re-establishing communications with
your teenager

4. Essential Conversations: Twelve essential talks to have with your teenager including:

  • The golden rule.
  • Forgiveness.
  • Sincerity, or why apologies matter.
  • Success and a good life.
  • Gracious living, or losing and winning well.
  • Empathy and compassion.
  • Why it is important to be honest.
  • Integrity and reputation.
  • How to care of yourself.
  • How to be an adult.
  • How to manage living independently.
  • Finding romance.

    I purchased this book for my daughter who is the mother of 5 teenagers and could not put it down once she had opened it! Her 6th child is 1 so she figures she will get it right with that one when she hits the teens.
