Get Out of My Life, but First Could You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall? : A Parent’s Guide to the New Teenager by Anthony E. Wolf This is a survival guide for parents who find themselves marooned among volatile and  incomprehensible aliens on Planet Teen.

Anthony Wolf’s modus operandi is not so much to make pronouncements about what parents should do, as to explain adolescent behavior in a way that’s bound to leave parents with a changed view of the plausible options. Wolf is a clinical psychologist, and his writing is clear–even witty–and he doesn’t resort to jargon.
