Tricky Teens: How to create a great relationship with your teen without going crazy! provides parents with a step-by-step guide to understanding what is really going on in the minds of their teenagers – and why. Tricky Teens is Andrew Fuller’s follow up to the acclaimed and hugely successful Tricky Kids.
A clinical psychologist, Andrew Fuller 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 the 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.
