Teen Owner's Manual
Operating Instructions, Trouble-Shooting Tips, and Advice on Adolescent Maintenance
The Baby Owner’s Manual has taught more than 350,000 readers how to “operate” their newborns and infants. But what happens when your adorable bundle of joy morphs into a strange, snarling, hormone fueled adolescent?
In The Teen Owner’s Manual, Sarah Jordan and Dr. Janice Hillman show how to navigate every stage of raising adolescents, from the first signs of puberty to the day your children leave the nest. Along the way, you’ll learn how to have The Sex Talk, how to handle peer pressure, and techniques for managing moodiness. You’ll even discover ways to get a monosyllabic teen to speak in full sentences-and maybe even take out the trash.
Illustrated in the trademark techy style of Quirk’s Owner’s Manual series (more than 1,000,000 books sold worldwide), The Teen Owner’s Manual is the perfect resource for frazzled parents everywhere.
SARAH JORDAN is a National Magazine Award-nominated author who has written extensively on parenting for magazines and newspapers including Parents and Parenting. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two children.
JANICE HILLMAN, M.D., is one of the country’s premier adolescent medical doctors, cited consistently as one of Philadelphia magazine’s Top Docs. She lives in Philadelphia.
