An original, practical and informed guide to living with and understanding teenagers.

Develop and improve your relationship with teenagers.

The teenage years are complex, exciting and often turbulent. Growth, development and learning are intrinsic to this period and every teenage experience is different. For anyone who cares about a teenager's wellbeing, development and learning, this Practical Guide offers a theoretically informed way of thinking about, understanding and actually living with teenagers. 

Focusing on the three major issues prevalent in teenage years: achievement, belonging and control, and the behaviours that fall within these categories, experienced professional educational psychologist Kairen Cullen expertly draws upon a wealth of experience and the different psychological theories and approaches that can be used to address each issue.
