Since its initial publication in 1995, "Uncommon Sense for Parents with Teenagers" has ushered countless families through the trying years of adolescence. In this fully revised and updated edition, Riera tackles some of the newest issues facing parents and teens, and gives a second look to the old standbys--alcohol and drugs, academics, sex and dating, sports and extracurriculars, eating disorders, making friends, single parenting, divorce, and more. Riera channels his unpatronizing approach and two decades of experience working with teens into this optimistic and indispensable book.
"This book offers a wealth of down-to-earth and practical advice. No detached academic author here! Dr. Riera is in the trenches with lots of hands-on experience to pass on to frustrated parents and teens alike."
—Dr. Dean Edell
