Dr. Wolf updates his classic blockbuster as times change. In 1991, the first edition of Get Out of My Life became an enormous success, selling over 300,000 copies. The words of Dr. Wolf were so on target that parents wondered if he had placed tape recorders around their homes. But the world has not stood still - in fact, it is changing faster than ever. And while the classic struggles between parents and teenagers still remain, societal changes have brought about many new ones that parents of earlier generations never dreamed of. Today's parents must deal with such new problems as their children experimenting with the latest recreational drugs; increased sexual activity at a younger age; the Internet; and above all, a world that seems far less safe than 10 years ago. Dr. Wolf realized the importance of these ever-evolving issues, which is why he has decided to significantly revise Get Out of My Life. Get Out of My Life provides parents with a new understanding of their teenagers so they will look at them in a whole new light, seeing them as young people on a journey to empowerment. And most importantly, he reassures parents that everything will turn out alright. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susannah | 2/16/2014

    " I may not have a teenager yet, but I will, and I'm very much afraid. I read this book in one day. I'm not sure why I liked it so much, especially when it warned me of all the frightening things I have to look forward to, but it really rang true for me. A lot of people would probably hate this book for stereotyping, but it happened to fit my son and daughter quite well. I also agreed with the section that related to school. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ronda | 2/15/2014

    " I thought it's an interesting read...If you want to understand teenagers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C | 1/25/2014

    " I would recommend this book for anyone attempting to maintain sanity while raising a teenager. Spot on in terms of generational differences in expectations, especially if you are an "older" parent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/22/2014

    " Great book, well paced, funny quotes, and very helpful information on talking with teenagers. This was recommended to me by two separate counselors for my two teenagers each as they entered high school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Travis | 1/7/2014

    " This book was a great read for me! I have a 13.5 yr old son and this helped me feel like what we are going through is not unusual. The book gives great insight into the minds of teens and very useful strategies for dealing with this roller coaster ride of parenting teens! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 12/27/2013

    " I still haven't finished this, but I know it could be a handy guide to anyone with teenagers. I don't care for Wolf's writing style--it's almost too short and choppy (as if he simply copied his notes and added a few connecting words in between), but it's funny and insightful. I especially needed to read the part on teenagers and lying. Oh, and Wolf's advice on the need to draw lines--even if your teenager steps over them--is helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 12/21/2013

    " Humorous, insightful, helpful but a little dated. If written today there would be more neuroscience and brain development discussion. Best part of my copy was marginalia and underlined phrases by previous readers. E.g. "Lectures do very little," "Parents must not allow themselves to get sucked into ongoing battles." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anndee | 12/15/2013

    " So I didn't finish this book because I wasn't in the mood. I will have to say that this is one of the best, not not the BEST title ever! What I did read was well written and reasonable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 11/25/2013

    " Extremely helpful when raising teenagers! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 11/1/2013

    " Perfect! When I finish this I'll know alllll about raising a pre-teen daughter and son! I think it should come with a subscription to the Wine of the Month club or something equally helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyndi | 10/12/2013

    " An absolute MUST READ for anyone that has or is about to have a child reaching adolescence, in fact the sooner the better! Get on this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachelle | 9/3/2013

    " Haven't gotten very far-- but so far the book looks good and right on target for understanding today's teens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 7/29/2013

    " I found this remarkably helpful, even though i mostly still have tweens. i like the approach that you can't change the kids, only encourage them to change, change the way you deal with them. very well written and readable, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 7/26/2013

    " A must read for all parents, especially pre teens and teens! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 7/25/2013

    " quick, easy read. Great book on dealing with adolescents ...their thought processes, actions & how to relate. Be sure to read BEFORE they hit the pre-teen years! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 7/23/2013

    " First parenting book I have actually almost read cover to cover. Mostly, I pick and choose chapters and chunks from parenting books. Mostly doesn't give advice helps you better remember and understand that teenage mind so you can come to your own conclusions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill Thomas | 5/14/2013

    " I really enjoyed this...gave god insight on teenagers and how to handle certain situations. Lots of good examples and references to what kids say and do... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 5/10/2012

    " MUST READ if you have teenagers!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Meade | 4/25/2012

    " Very helpful but didn't really provide any solutions other than to tel me that what my kids are doing is normal and I just have to deal with it. But it has definitely helped me re-frame my expectations for the teen years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 3/14/2012

    " The BEST parenting book for those with teens! "

    " interesting ideas, but very outdated! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 1/18/2012

    " Good story for parents of teenagers, realize you are not alone with what is going on...book falls apart at the end but still worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Umab8587 | 1/5/2012

    " I very much recommend this book for any parents of teenage girls! Parts made me laugh out loud, but also helped me gave me a new understanding of the angst of adolescence and this phase. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 11/15/2011

    " The title says it all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay Blevins | 9/24/2011

    " Fantastic look at adolescence and how the parents' perspective differs from that of the adolescent's. An extremely easy and fun read. Great for parents and therapists alike. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 7/27/2011

    " some good advice so that I survived the thirteenth year. also put on your list .... uncommon sense for parents with teenagers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 5/22/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kressel Housman | 4/26/2011

    " An excellent explanation as to why teenagers act the way they do. I found the girls' explanation close to my experience, so I trust the author's word on the boys'. But I could have done without all the curse words. Yeah, many teenagers talk like that, but how much do I need to read it? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 4/12/2011

    " Excellent resource in dealing with teens. I highly recommend this to parents of teens (especially girl teens) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna-karin | 3/14/2011

    " Not great, not terrible. Over-generalized way too much (as well as stating really low expectations for kids' behaviour), but there were a few good points. The discussion it led to in book group, however, was stellar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 2/28/2011

    " some good advice so that I survived the thirteenth year. also put on your list .... uncommon sense for parents with teenagers. "
