The Prince Boofhead Syndrome
Some teenage boys think the world revolves around them and are treating their parents like doormats - but it has to stop! Leading adolescent psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg believes that too many Australian boys have got it too easy - and he's dealing with the fallout every day. The result is a generation of 'boofheads', boys with huge egos who think they are too good to stack the dishwasher or work for money. They expect the world and give little in return. But things are about to change. From the author of the groundbreaking Australian bestseller The Princess Bitchface Syndrome comes this hugely anticipated and long-awaited companion book for boys. It serves as both a warning and a rescue manual for all desperate parents - why have boys today become such egotistical and lazy creatures, what can you do to prevent it, and how do you deal with the situation if you're caught up in the crisis? This hard-hitting book will ask the tough questions and deliver the straightforward advice so that the parents of today can take back control. It is essential reading for everyone living with a teenage male.
