Teenagers have two different categories when it comes to parents: 1. Stupid 2. Not-so-stupid At some point in their lives all teens are in conflict with their parents, and how you handle that conflict will make you a stupid parent or a not-so-stupid one. When it comes to teens it's hard to know what to do. The sweet baby you brought home seems to have changed into another being. But don't worry. There is hope. Not-So-Stupid Parents and its teen companion book Stupid Parents bring teens and parents together to help them learn to understand one another as never before. In Not-So-Stupid Parents you'll learn how to: •stop the yelling •decode teen-speak (or what that silence really means) •find the balance between overprotection and permissiveness •perfect the art of negotiation while still being the adult It might not seem like it today, but there is a way you both can win. Not-So-Stupid Parents will help you reconnect with your kids to show them that you're not so stupid after all.

EXCERPT FROM CATALOG Slammed doors, rolled eyes, exasperated huffs-you've probably experienced one or all of these if you have a teen in the house. What happened? You used to be their idol and could do no wrong; now suddenly you're the stupidest person on the planet. Your teen might never have told you that to your face, but chances are they've thought it. It's just human nature. It's part of their need to grow up into their own individual and to move away from the nest. But don't worry, there is hope. You can become a Not-So-Stupid Parent when you learn some things about communicating with teens. For example, in Stupid Parents: Why They Just Don't Understand and How You Can Help, I talked to your teens about living under authority. Once teens understand that they can't fight you or get away from your authority, they have to start to learn how to manage communication in a more healthy way. In this book we'll take a look at how you and your teen interact from that same perspective of living under authority, and you'll see a move toward more win-win situations and a departure from the lose-lose battles of yesterday.
