"Page-turners are rare on the parenting bookshelf, but Lippincott and Deutsch have given us just that. Their insights, humor, and excellent judgment make this a must for parents looking for the road map through the adolescent minefield. It is worth every minute you spend with them."--Kyle Pruett, M.D., professor of child psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine, co-author of Partnership Parenting "7 Things Your Teenager Won't Tell You provides valuable new insights based on contemporary research, while showing parents how to identify the seven features of adolescent thinking through language and behavior. This book offers not only the understanding that is essential to effective and supportive communication but also helpful examples of how to put that understanding into practice."--David Elkind, PhD., author of The Hurried Child "Sound, concrete advice . . . This book gives a wealth of examples to help guide parents who struggle to stay connected during this critical time in their children's lives. I highly recommend it."--Alvin F. Poussaint, M.D., professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School "All teens pose unique challenges to their poor unsuspecting parents, but thankfully there are some commonalities. This book shares them with a goldmine of information, and offers concrete suggestions on how to deal."--Robin Raskin, former editor-in-chief of Family PC magazine
