Being a teen (or the parent of a teen) doesn't have to be so hard. How to Raise Your Parents will help teens and their parents navigate those years between training bras and keys to the family car. In a voice teens will relate to and parents will appreciate, author Sarah O'Leary Burningham offers smart advice about negotiation and parental hot buttons and a little insight about what the world looks like from a parent's point of view.
In purchasing this book on Amazon (for free, thankfully), I was expecting a book that would help a teenager better understand their parents, while continuing to respect them. While the author did help readers understand parents better, the respect wasn't there. Many of the advice given to teens through this book is disrespectful, and occasionally downright rude to their parents.

While I may not have had the best teenage years myself due to fights with my parents, I still strongly believed in respecting them and their authority. It's saddening to see that this author is encouraging girls to act this way. Don't pick up this book unless you're prepared for what she has to offer.

I received this book through purchase on Amazon. I was not required to post a review, and the thoughts contained herein are my own.
