Well-known teen psychologist Andrew Fuller provides practical and humorous advice on how to ensure both you and your teen survive the teenage years.  

Tricky teens provides parents with a step-by-step guide to understanding what is really going on in the minds of their teenagers - and why; handling common conflict situations faced by every family with a teenager and successfully navigating common difficulties; creating a relatively peaceful happy family environment; and raising your teens so that they can successfully leave home, get a job and become wonderful adults.

A clinical psychologist, 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. Divided into four sections:
1. Neurochemistry and Habit: What really causes tricky teen behaviours
2. Overcoming Common Problems: helping teens successfully navigate common problems such as anxiety, arguments, computer addiction, the opposite sex, reclusive teenagers, sibling conflict, suicide prevention, zombies and zits
3. Changing patterns: A six-week program for re-establishing communications with your teenager
4. Essential Conversations: twelve essential talks to have with your teenager including:

How to be an adult.
How to develop a good reputation and keep it.
Honesty: why it is important.
Developing empathy and compassion.
Finding romance, saying no to romance you don't want and keeping romance alive.
