How to Raise Your Parents

A Teen Girl's Survival Guide

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Being a teen (or the parent of a teen) doesn't have to be so hard. How to Raise Your Parents will help teens and their parents navigate those years between training bras and keys to the family car. In a voice teens will relate to and parents will appreciate, author Sarah O'Leary Burningham offers smart advice about negotiation and parental hot buttons and a little insight about what the world looks like from a parent's point of view.

From Publishers Weekly

May 19, 2008 – Burningham, a publicist for a New York based publisher, starts out strong in this book of advice to the adolescent. Know your parent is her first bit of wisdom, and to this end she offers a witty set of profiles of the Hippie, the Schoolmarm, the Teen Wannabe, etc.; usefully, she identifies the parental types who fly off the handle and the types who are overprotective, then supplies coping strategies. Elsewhere, it's a mixed bag. Some of her counsel is welcome (how to handle a broken curfew or other misdemeanor); some is superfluous (if you hear your parents' footsteps, stop making out); and some just doesn't fly (if parents won't sanction one-on-one dating, girls should invite the boy over: And after spending some time with them, your boyfriend will probably think your family is cool just one more reason you're such a catch! ). Much of the best advice, including Burningham's tactics for negotiating in general, presumes a maturity on the part of readers but if they can internalize her words, they'll be set for life. Ages 13 up.
