Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ellen Pober Rittberg is a writer, attorney, and award-winning journalist who hosted and produced the TV show The Changing Family. Her feature articles and essays have appeared in the New York Daily News, the New York Times, and the Boston Globe. For 13 years, Ms. Rittberg raised three teens, all born within a three-year time span.

More About the Author

Ellen Pober Rittberg is a award-winning parenting writer, public speaker, attorney and mother of three very closely spaced now-grown children. For 13 years she represented hundreds of children and teens in court in virtually all aspects of their lives. While she can't say she has seen it all, she saw and experienced a great deal of things close up which others didn't or haven't yet and which are the basis of her philosophy and book. A humor writer -- one of her children, Matt Ritter, is now a stand-up comic and comedy writer -- Ms. Rittberg wanted to help parents laugh and deal during this sometimes very trying time (for example, she tells what to do when your children throw a party even though you've made all kinds of plans to prevent it, and how to deal with the aftermath and how to make certain it doesn't happen again.) In short, this book is the one she wishes she had, containing all the tricks of the trade through 35 side splitting but on the money rules. For several years, she hosted and produced a live cable television show, "The Changing Family."

Excellent basic review of "How To" parent teenagers - although the title is a little deceiving.
Point number one - really rule number on in my mind.... is easily the best in the book "Family is not a democracy"! I remind my 14 year old... you can't vote me out of office and the only bill of "rights" are the ones that I CHOOSE to grant you.

My only disappointment was the lack of coverage of two key challenges...
1. Electronic Connections - text messaging and cell phones have forever changed parenting and hourly challenge the strength of the family bonds. The lack of coverage on this key piece suprised me. How to effectively manage the reality of connectivity without creating an uprising would be most helpful!! The constant connectedness with friends is challenging to manage and keep some family value balance.
2. Dating/Relationships - how to mediate the pitfalls of the "dating" game at too early of an age. You can say you cant date until you are in high school... but what do you really do about it. And how to handle it when it seems to be too big of a driving force for your kids group of friends.

Definitley worth the read - would look forward to an update addressing some of the challenges outlined above!

This had me laughing out loud! With vivid, funny language and ridiculous stories any parent can relate to, this is a great read. Besides the humor value, the author is a lawyer for teens and an award-winning journalist, which makes me trust her as an authority and use this as an actual guidebook. I loved this book and would recommend it to parents of any ages - teens, preteens and even the young'ens!!

I read this book on my way to work and loved it. I can relate to a lot of the scenarios and the author shows why it is best to be a loving, strong parent that can laugh at the craziness of raising teens. I would recommend this to any parent.

A friend just told me about this book. I am dealing with two teenagers in the middle of their rebellious stage. After reading this book, I know feel like I have a guide book. Aside from the book being helpful, it was incredibly funny!

This book had me in stitches! It's so hard to be the parent of a teen but it feels like Ellen is with us for the ride! I thought the breakdown of the chapters was great!

It's a handy little size to keep in the bag and hide from the kids... Lord knows they would NOT want us to have this!!

I've used some of the tips like getting to know my kids' friends and participating in their sports and other hobbies (even those darn computer games!)
Additionally, I appreciate the honesty behind this. Even our kids, who we love and will continue to love, do try to deceive us and live their secret, separate life. It's unfair but we have some artillery now!

Ellen is a brave soul for lasting through 3 kids and making it out with her humor intact. Great book!
