Teenagers have two different categories when it comes to parents: 1. Stupid 2. Not-so-stupid At some point in their lives all teens are in conflict with their parents, and how you handle that conflict will make you a stupid parent or a not-so-stupid one. When it comes to teens it's hard to know what to do. The sweet baby you brought home seems to have changed into another being. But don't worry. There is hope. Not-So-Stupid Parents and its teen companion book Stupid Parents bring teens and parents together to help them learn to understand one another as never before. In Not-So-Stupid Parents you'll learn how to: •stop the yelling •decode teen-speak (or what that silence really means) •find the balance between overprotection and permissiveness •perfect the art of negotiation while still being the adult It might not seem like it today, but there is a way you both can win.
