Get Out Of My Life, But First Could You Drive Me & Cheryl To The Mall: A Parent's Guide To The New…

by Anthony E. Wolf

Farrar, Straus And Giroux | August 21, 2002 | Trade Paperback

Get Out Of My Life, But First Could You Drive Me & Cheryl To The Mall: A Parent's Guide To The New Teenager is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
A brand new edition of the bestselling guide to raising teenagers

When Anthony E. Wolf''s witty and compassionate guide to raising adolescents was first published, its amusing title and fresh approach won it widespread admiration. Beleaguered parents breathed sighs of relief and gratitude. Now Dr. Wolf has revised and updated his bestseller to tackle the changes of the past decade. He points out that while the basic issues of adolescence and the relationships between parents and their children remain much the same, today''s teenagers navigate a faster, less clearly anchored world. Wolf''s revisions include a new chapter on the Internet, a significantly modified section on drugs and drinking, and an added piece on gay teenagers. Although the rocky and ever-changing terrain of contemporary adolescence may bewilder parents, Get Out of My Life gives them a great road map.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just ride the waves and hold on! A great book that keeps you laughing and sighing with relief that your child is normal and is going through a stage of their life. Remember to ride the storm, it will be over one day and your child will thank you and apologize for putting up with their behaviour. A great book for parents who want assurance that they are doing what is best to raise someone who will be healthy, safe, and a responsible member of society once an adult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for every parent raising teens I bought the 1996 version when my kids were little and didn't read it until recently as I now have teens. When I was reading it I kept saying to my husband "you have GOT to read this book". It is an excellent - very practical. So much has changed since 1996 so I just ordered the 2002 version - I'm looking forward to the chapter on the internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not a Looser Mom after all! After reading this bible for raising teenages,I am feeling better about my children and myself as a Mom.I have a son and daughter and what is so great about this book it was written for me.I was so pleased to see just how normal our home is and that whatever we are going through not only is right on but the solutions how to deal with teenagers are most helpful. I keep this book very close by and reach for it often to remind me IT IS JUST A STAGE THEY ARE GOING THROUGH. It has saved me. and maybe both of them to.LOL

Read from the Book

Get Out of My Life, But First Could You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall? Part I Adolescence 1 What Is Adolescence? "Clarissa was so sweet. She always used to give me these cute little cards with hearts or smiley faces on them. They would say ''I love you, Mommy.'' She was a treasure. She really was. I used to call her ''Mommy''s little treasure.'' And helpful around the house? She would always ask if there was anything she could do. I just don''t understand what happened. She changed. And now she abuses me. She''s a monster."   "Reuben and I always had a special relationship. We were very close. When he got home from school, he couldn''t wait to tell me about his day, and he always wanted to show me his school papers. He was so proud of them. Sometimes he would sit in my lap, he wasn''t embarrassed about it, and we would just talk. It was really very wonderful. But then he changed. Now he hates me. He can''t stand to be around me. I can''t touch him. I''ve lost him. I feel so awful, so rejected."   Adolescence is unlike any other period in life. Above all, it is a time of transformation. It is not a single event, but a number of major changes coming within a relatively short period. These changes turn nice little children into intimidating adolescents. There are distinct differences between how boys and girls go through this traumatic period of their lives. Not all adolescent boys and girls behave in the ways described throughout this book, but there is no question
