As children approach their teens, family relationships go through big changes. Inevitably, worried parents will sometimes find themselves wishing they could swap their teenager through the pages of Exchange & Mart, but adolescent adjustments do not have to be changes for the worse. Building on the success of previous titles in our 'family series', this manual provides just what you would expect from Haynes - down-to-earth, step-by-step instructions, written by professionals from practical experience. It covers all areas of teenage life from physical and emotional development to education and social problems, accompanied by colour photos throughout.
