They Don`t Just Do Nothing: They Lie There and Grow

What Helps During Puberty

All of us somehow survive it – puberty. And most of us have even turned into decent human beings. So why are we afraid that our pubescent children will never get their act together? Was it different for us in earlier times? Or were we exactly the same but our point of view has fundamentally changed from the perspective of a parent? Elisabeth Raffauf tells true puberty stories, reminding readers of their own chaos years with a conspiratorial wink. This book is enormously helping in understanding today`s young people in their conflict between a need for affection and rebellion, as well as exploring the role of the parent in a new way.

  • Popular expert in the media
