How to Raise Your Parents by Sarah O'Leary Burningham
(Chronicle Kids, Paperback)
There are a million books out there for parents about raising kids. Now Sarah Burningham has written a book for teens about how to raise their parents. Subtitled "A Teen Girl's Survival Guide", How to Raise Your Parents is filled with helpful hints and clues about how to survive your teenage years without killing your parents. It's got everything, from how to talk about curfew to breaking the news about a bad grade to learning how to negotiate. My favorite part is the funky drawings throughout that help set the mood for each section. This is a book for younger teens but hip parents should consider giving it to their pre-teens.
