Teen speak

For parents weathering their kids' turbulent teen years, a pocket-size book, "Always Accept Me For Who I Am" (Three Rivers Press, $8), could help. The book lets teens do the talking. Suggestions such as "I would love it if whenever I have a personal problem I could hit a switch that turns you into a friend who's always looking out for me...." are written in the penmanship and voice of teens who are so candid that parents used to hearing only grunts and mumbles will be surprised - and moved.
