This is the true story of what it's like to be an achingly careful parent, with hopes and dreams for your precious progeny, and what happens when those same bundles of joy grow up into adolescents stuffed full of angst, attitude, alcopops and amphetamines.
LIVING WITH TEENAGERS is a deliciously painful, unflinchingly honest look at what it's like to watch your children grow up into classic teenagers. They may shout at you, lie to you and hurt you... but they'll always be your flesh and blood, your grown-up babies. Whether you're battling with the rages and rudeness of your own tempestuous teenagers, gazing at your blank-canvas baby and thinking, 'That will never happen to us...', or the whole idea of having children is still only an idea, this is compulsive, car-crash reading.
An extraordinary yet entirely everyday insight into family life, LIVING WITH TEENAGERS is by turns heartbreaking and humorous, heartwarming and enough to send a cold chill down your spine. Ever wondered what it's like to have your own teenage kids tell you, in the same breath, that they love you, now 'f*** off'? Here's your chance to find out.
