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.

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
