Dr. Michael Riera - Uncommon Sense for Parents With Teenagers

Parents who truly want to understand the teenage years would be wise to turn to the book that has made uncommon sense of them for nearly two decades. Uncommon Sense for Parents with Teenagers ($14.99) draws from Dr. Michael Riera’s thirty years of experience working with more than twenty thousand teenagers and parents, and every ounce of that wisdom is captured in its pages. This perennial bestseller (with more than 100,000 copies sold) has been completely revised and updated to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing families today, including how to handle technology and social media; ways to combat bullying; and tips for parenting tweens, who are growing up faster and confronting teenage issues sooner than ever before. 

Michael Riera, PhD, is author of Staying Connected to Your Teenager, Right from Wrong: Instilling a Sense of Integrity in Our Children, Field Guide to the American Teenager, and Surviving High School. The former family counselor of CBS’s Saturday Morning Early Show, Riera is also an award-winning columnist, educator, and national speaker. He has appeared on Oprah, 48 Hours, The Today Show, The View, and NPR radio. He is currently head of the Brentwood School in Los Angeles, California, and is available for interviews.
