Get Out of My Life but First Can You Drive Me and Cheryl To The Mall? is Anthony E. Wolf's witty and compassionate guide to raising adolescents. Beleaguered parents breathe sighs of relief and gratitude after reading this book. Dr. Wolf has revised and updated his bestseller to tackle the changes of the past decade. He points out that while the basic issues of adolescence and the relationships between parents and their children remain much the same, today's teenagers navigate a faster, less clearly anchored world. Wolf's revisions include a new chapter on the Internet, a significantly modified section on drugs and drinking, and an added piece on gay teenagers. Although the rocky and ever-changing terrain of contemporary adolescence may bewilder parents, Get Out of My Life gives them a great road map.
