Publisher's Summary

"There are times when parenting seems nothing more than feeding the mouth that bites you." (Peter De Vries)

Parenting teenagers can be hard. Maybe you already know that. The question is, does adolescence really need to be a frustrating time for parents and teenagers? If your child isn't a teenager yet, can you make preparations now to avoid many of the pitfalls parents of adolescents go through? With so much information and differing viewpoints, how can a parent really know that they are "doing it right"?

In Feeding the Mouth That Bites You, Dr. Ken Wilgus outlines a clear and practical path through the confusion of parenting adolescents in today's world. Engaging, accessible, and funny, Feeding the Mouth That Bites You summarizes Dr. Wilgus's best teachings on how to parent teenagers, collected over 25 years of work with adolescents and their families as well as two decades of teaching on parenting.

Though trends and technology will always change, the adolescent need for autonomy remains the one foundational issue that is the largest obstacle to a healthy parent/teenager relationship. Feeding the Mouth That Bites You explains this need and the effect it has on a wide range of teenage behavior. Dr. Wilgus clearly outlines his method for safely and effectively meeting this need: Planned Emancipation. Once parents clearly understand adolescents' needs and know how to respond, parenting a teenager becomes much less frustrating. Even their teenagers join in to help out!

Knowing what your teenager needs and being able to provide for that need is truly the art of Feeding the Mouth That Bites You.
