Why do parents drive teenagers up the wall? Win this book and find out!

30th Sep 2019

We’ve teamed up with Dean Burnett to give away to three signed copies of his latest book “WHY YOUR PARENTS ARE DRIVING YOU UP THE WALL AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT” to our members.

This is a fascinating book that’s full of insights and guidance useful to every teenager - and their families. 

Here’s what the blurb says: "There are so many books about the parent-teen relationship and how fractious it can be, but practically all of them are written for the parents. 'Why your parents...' is the first book that does the opposite, and tells teens how to manage the often-stubborn and irrational adults in their lives. Exploring the many effects of adolescent brain development and how the adult brain differs, and incorporating modern concerns like school stress, mental health and social media, 'Why Your Parents...' is a must read for anyone who is a teen, has a teen, or ever was a teen"

Dean Burnett is currently an Honorary Research Associate at Cardiff Psychology School, as well as a Visiting Industry Fellow at Birmingham City University. He is also a full-time author, previously known for his satirical science column ‘Brain Flapping‘ at the Guardian, which ran from 2012 to 2018, which led to his internationally acclaimed bestselling debut book ‘The Idiot Brain
