'A wonderfully useful book, told with wit and wisdom' - Adam Kay, best-selling author of THIS IS GOING TO HURT
"Get up or you'll miss the best part of the day!" "You treat this place like a hotel." "Can you just put that phone down for one minute?!"
After years of reliable performance, has something recently gone wrong with your parents? Do you find yourself stressed out, arguing about the most ridiculous things?Is it like you're processing the same world with entirely different brains? Do you and your parents want to fix things?
There are hundreds of books for them about how to deal with you. Now, for the first time, doctor of brains and international bestselling author, Dean Burnett has written a book for YOU to understand just what on earth is going on.
Like, just WHY are your parents:
- Obsessed with tidiness
- Not letting you get enough sleep
- Just generally not getting anything that's important to you!
But don't worry.
These are very normal parent malfunctions, and by understanding the science behind where they're coming from, you'll know exactly how to troubleshoot conflict when it occurs (and even fix it before it does).
You'll never be able to remove arguments completely. But imagine what you'd be capable of if you weren't wasting all that time and energy arguing about tidying your room.
