The How Rude! Handbook of Family Manners for Teens: Avoiding Strife in Family Life (Paperback)
Email or call for price
When family life is full of strife, what can a poor teen do?
This book covers the basics of creating the civilized home—a place where people talk instead of yell, pick up after themselves, respect each other, and fight fair.
And it’s not all about the traditional family. Tips also cover the blended, shaken, stirred, and mixed (or mixed-up?) family, with special advice for teens whose parents are divorced.
