Living with teenagers can be overwhelming. Overnight, it seems, the children you were once so close to turn into independent strangers with thoughts, tastes, and values all their own. And today's teens are growing up in a popular culture that is meaner, ruder, cruder, more materialistic, more sexualized, and more violent than ever before. What's a parent to do? How to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk Internationally acclaimed parenting experts Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish have helped millions of families with their breakthrough, best-selling books How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, Siblings Without Rivalry, and Liberated Parents, Liberated Children. Now, they return with a lively, down-to-earth guide that tackles the tough issues teens and parents face today. After years of research, lecturing, and feedback, Faber and Mazlish have developed an innovative approach to maintaining a candid, open, mutually respectful dialogue between parents and teens. It's a strategy that curbs conflict, reduces frustration, and promotes thoughtful communication about everything from curfews and drugs to schoolwork and sex. Written in Faber and Mazlish's trademark accessible style, How to Talk So Teens Will Listen & Listen So Teens Will Talk takes you inside their acclaimed workshops where you will hear -- in the words of both parents and teens -- what's on the minds of families today. Packed with suggestions that are easy to implement, and reinforced with stories, line drawings, and "reminder" pages, this indispensable volume will help build a foundation for a healthy relationship that puts the emphasis on rapport rather than reprisals. From age-old concerns about cliques and dating to contemporary worries about binge drinking and cyberbullying, Faber and Mazlish help parents tackle problems before they get out of hand. In their warm, lucid, unpatronizing manner, the authors show families how to be supportive and stay connected during the challenging teenage years.

Adele Faber was born January 12, 1928 in New York to Morris and Betty Kamey Meyrowitz. She received a B.A. in 1949 from Queen's College and an M.A. in 1950 from New York University. Long involved in education and human development, Faber has taught speech at the New York School of Printing, English at the high school level in Brooklyn and at Long Island University. She led parenting workshops at C.W. Post College and at the New School for Social Research. A recognized authority on children and the parent-child relationship, Faber, along with Elaine Mazlish, has written several works about parent-child relationships. These include Liberated Parents/Liberated Children: Your Guide to a Happier Family (1974), Breaking Barriers: A Workshop Series in Human Relational Skills for Teenagers (1976), Siblings Without Rivalry (1987), and a children's book, Bobby and Breckles (1993). Faber has written television scripts such as "Mr. Sad-Sack" (1975) and "The Princess" (1975), both for ABC. Faber and Mazlish wrote a television script for Kentucky Educational Television called, "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen" (1990). In 1992, she and Mazlish also collaborated on a collection of audiocassettes and a workbook called How to Be the Parent You Always Wanted to Be.
