Take Out Your Nose Ring, Honey, We're Going to Grandma's
Hanging In, Holding On and Letting Go of Your Teen
by Barbara Cooke and Carleton Kendrick
UP Bookstore



Take Out Your Nose Ring, Honey, We’re Going to Grandma’s is a reassuring antidote to today’s epidemic of negative teen stereotypes, a collection of real-life, inspiring and amusing stories from the true experts: POAs, parents of adolescents.

We help you stay lovingly connected with your teens while remaining aware of their goodness, confusion and desperate search for identity.

"This book is funny, wise and makes you want to hug your teens.
Buy it, read it and do it!"

--Michele Borba, Ed.D.,

author of Parents Do Make a Difference

Cooke, Kendrick and their fellow POAs show you how to:

Hang in -- even when you’re feeling rejected and your relationship is slipping away.

Hold on -- learn to laugh and treasure those funny, frenetic teenage years.

Let go -- your teens must become independent, resilient and leave home.


Barbara Cooke, M.S. is an award-winning columnist for parents of teens and a frequent contributor to the Chicago Tribune.

Carleton Kendrick, Ed.M., LCSW appears regularly as a teen expert on national television and radio (CBS, Fox, CNN, CNBC, NPR) and in publications such as Time, Reader’s Digest, The New York Times and USA Today.
