Decoding Your Teenager: How to Understand Each Other During the Turbulent Years

Michael Desisto, Author, William Proctor, With William Morrow & Company $15.95 (203p) ISBN 978-0-688-08776-0
Founder and director of two schools--in Massachusetts and Florida--for troubled youngsters, DeSisto here speaks authoritatively about ways parents can and should enjoy their children's ``terrible teens.'' He begins with a parental self-evaluation scale and outlines steps by which parents can raise their ``comfort zone'' to enhance their closeness to and enjoyment of their teenagers. Distinguishing among what he sees as 10 ``Kid Types,'' the author encourages parents to think creatively, to reflect, to communicate successfully and, finally, to savor the success of their adult children. DeSisto, father of an adopted son, peppers his compassionate commonsense advice with illustrative vignettes. Author tour. (Feb.)
