Hachette Books, 21.07.2009 г. - 336 страници
Addressing the isolation, fear, and silence parents endure during their child's adolescence, authors Michael Riera and Joseph Di Prisco get beyond the stereotypes to expertly guide parents to a better appreciation of their teenager's frustrating if not completely troubling behavior.Through stories and conversations, Field Guide to the American Teenager dramatizes teens living their lives on their own terms, illuminating for bewildered and sometimes beleaguered parents what is extraordinary in the ordinary reality of everyday teenage life. Complete with suggestions for parents to improve communication, Field Guide lets parents stand briefly in their teenager's shoes, ultimately guiding families toward genuine mutual respect and understanding.

Страница v - I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love, If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged, Missing me one place search another, I stop somewhere waiting for you.
