Not particularly practical! But amusing nonetheless. ( )

Ever wonder what your mom or dad is thinking when they won't let you walk out of the house in a perfectly good outfit? Or how about when they come up with some crazy rule that doesn't make any sense?

And parents, what is your teen thinking when they choose a ropes course adventure summer camp over horseback riding? And what about those "trashy" books they read?

Welcome to the world of raising a parent....or, I mean, raising a teen?

Sarah O'Leary Burningham uses a voice both funny and charming to reach out to parents and teens. She recognizes the strengths and merits of both units and tries to highlight and outline ways that teens and parents can work together to overcome communication obstacles.

Be sure to check out the funny way that she does this for teens with her "parent profiles." ( )
