Drawing on substantial research to validate his advice, Shipp maps out the many challenging aspects of parenting teenagers--from negotiating responsibilities to addressing disrespect and sexual activity. Roger Wayne's narration has a dynamism to it that is equal parts wise sage and cool adult The only way Wayne falls short is in his delivery of Shipp's jokes, which sometimes lack the zing one expects. It's usually because Wayne's delivery is too straight or moves on too quickly for the listener to realize a joke was delivered. Overall, though, Wayne captures Shipp's prose with good emphasis and energy, suggesting an earnest desire to understand teens' lived experience.
