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, television, or 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. A bestselling author by the age of 21, and son of #1 New York Times bestseller Dr. Phillip C. McGraw, known to millions worldwide as Dr. Phil, Jay has seen the parent-teen battle from all angles. In this groundbreaking work, he introduces a new plan for both teens and their parents to work through the issues that divide them and, in the process, rediscover the love that initially defined their relationship.

In this entertaining, informative, and life-changing audiobook, Jay gives instructions to both sides of the familial gap on

– Dos and don’ts for parents and teens;
– Parent and teen myths;
– Discovering your needs;
– Tuning in to the needs of others;
– Ten ways to bridge the gap and reconnect.

In finding a common ground, and even more important, a common respect for one another, parents and teens can break down the walls and welcome each other back into one another’s lives.

    Amazon.com, editorial review

    " I only read what I was looking for. What I like about Jay McGraw's books is that his age allows him to talk to the teens ("now you're probably thinking...")but also let them know what their responsiblities are. "
