The Politically Incorrect Guide to Teenagers product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsFollowing the success of The Politically Incorrect Parenting Show, comes the next series from clinical psychologist Nigel Latta, focusing on the hormone-filled, angst-ridden world of the teenager.

The show blends Nigel's irreverent and provocative approach to parenthood, with sound and informed parenting advice based on his 20 years work with New Zealand families.

Are teenagers today that much more problematic than we were? How did our parents just get on with it yet we worry about every last little thing? Why do modern teenagers seem to think that the world really does revolve around them? And should parents worry about the technology they use, from social networking sites to non-stop texting. Nigel ponders these questions and more.

In this fast-paced, entertaining mixture of live stage show, animation, documentary, sketches and some choice archive from 'the good old days', Nigel peels back the layers of silliness which have gradually sucked a lot of the fun out of childhood, and have layered guilt on parents whilst at the same time destroying our confidence in our basic ability to grow happy, healthy kids.

Until I was given the DVD to review from KIWIreviews, I had not seen anything of this series before. I had heard of it but did not really know much about it. However I have to say: Absolutely brilliant!

Nigel Latta really does put parenting teenagers into perspective, and best of all he does it in such a way that you can't help but watch it again. And each time you watch it, you pick up something new that you missed the time before.

I watched the DVD the first time, and laughed so much that when it was finished I could not remember anything other than, it was funny. The second time I found myself talking about the 'teen fairy' to everyone I came in contact with that had tween or teenagers, and we all agreed that yes that fairy was definitely true. All our children had gone from lovely, polite, respectful, well behaved little darlings with shiny halos to these mean spirited individuals that seemed to appear out if nowhere. Yep Nigel definitely hit the nail on the head with that one for sure.

The third time I watched it, yes I have watched it that many times (in fact I've watched it more than that) I picked up do many more relevant and useful scenarios that I too could put into practice with my own, and I caught myself throughout the time of watching it, saying " omg of course, why did I not think of that before, that's so obvious."

I now find when something happens with my boys that leaves me frustrated, confused, annoyed or lost with what to do I flick the DVD on and you can bet there's an answer lying right in there for me. It's as I said, absolutely brilliant,

Nigel Latta will be a god sent for many a parent out there, myself included. I have recommended this to so many friends and family, and wish I'd found it sooner.

If your looking for a humorous approach to parenting, and someone who can put things in perspective without making you feel like a failure then I highly recommend The politically incorrect guide to teenagers. There really is light at the end of the tunnel, and Nigel Latta will definitely help you to see that.

I promise you definitely won't be disappointed in this.

Product image for Jane and the Dragon - Knight LightTwelve year old Jane lives in a medieval castle filled with eccentric d endearing friends, including Dragon (a giant green dragon), Jester (the court jester), Pepper (the cook), Rake (the gardener) and Smithy (the blacksmith).
