When did that sudden gap divide your home into territories staked and claimed with music blasting through the halls, and fists banging on doors to turn down the stereo/TV/video game? Teens, when did you start seeing your parents as your enemies instead of your heroes? And parents, when did you start seeing your teens as crazy little demons instead of your loving children?
Finally, there is a solution for both sides, and one that will not only bridge that gap but show parents and teens how to prevent it. Jay McGraw-the author of The New York Times bestseller Life Strategies for Teens -- is the ideal person to write a book for both parents and teens.
