This could just be the book that restores your sanity (Daily Mail)
All power to these two authors. There's a real understanding of young people and practical advice, such as what you can and cannot control in your teenager's life. This book offers the comfort of self-recognition, and assurance that others must be having the same experiences. A good book for parents and, perhaps, for form tutors, especially those with no children of their own (Times Educational Supplement)
Masses of practical ideas about how to help teenagers feel good about themselves, how to keep family communications open and how to deal with problems, from parties to swearing (Independent)
Gill Hines and Alison Baverstock have a light touch, even when they're dealing with serious issues. Their suggestions are easy to read, and simple to put into practice (Jacqueline Wilson OBE)

Alison Baverstock and Gill Hines have answers to every domestic problem that is likely to occur with your little darlings. What with hectic Edinburgh city life im ashamed to say my children have been rather neglected of late, and 'Whatever' has certainly given me more time with my family and we are happier for it.
I recently saw Alison Baverstock speak at the Edinburgh Book Festival about her book and i learned she has four children of her own, two of whom are teenagers! I cant say i envy them having a book written all about them but im sure theyre really very proud.
Buy this book and act on it if you want your home life to improve! Enjoy!
Keep your kids as friends and save yourself from reaching for the gin bottle!
But the issues it raises (a teenager's world, feel-good factor, the role of the family, self-organisation, money, bullying, sex, drugs and alcohol, hobbies and pastimes, all my friends are allowed to...) are crucial to a young person's development. The book concludes by asking you to think about how you want to be remembered. It makes me think too about how you must make the most of the pleasure that your teenagers can bring you. Read it!
