How do we help our teenagers become excellent humans who want to spend time with their parents? This is the book that will set you (and them) on the right path.

50 Questions to Ask Your Teens is a guide for parents and carers to nurture resilience and independence in teens as they navigate the complex, confusing and exciting world of adolescence. For anyone who wants to better connect with their teens and help them to be functioning, self-aware and kind adults, Daisy Turnbull offers a simple framework with clever questions to engage your teen and pre-teen from age 10 onwards.


In 50 Questions to Ask Your Teens, you'll find questions that encourage your teen to master the practical – basic cooking, laundry and life admin – as well as trickier topics, like consent, gender stereotypes, self-compassion, managing conflict, mental health, boundaries and media influences. Structured thematically, the book moves beyond the predictable developmental milestones of childhood and addresses the nuanced social and emotional needs of teens as their identities are forming in important ways. Parents and carers will learn how to promote their teens' autonomy, encourage them to take responsibility and understand consequences and risks in a fast-changing world.

Underpinned with research and informed by Daisy's own experiences as a teacher of teens and a mother of two, 50 Questions to Ask Your Teens is a warm, relatable book that's perfectly in tune with where teens are at right now, and the perfect book for parents who want to regularly connect with their teenagers in meaningful ways.
