Synopsis

When Nina turned 13, the atmosphere was tense at her house. "No wonder", she was always told - she was now a teenager and would soon enter puberty. The word "teenager" was always used as a kind of swear word to explain anything bad happening. It became a bit of a thorn in her eye and she started to analyse the situation more closely. - And came to the conclusion that her parents were also in a challenging phase of their lives. She came to call this the "Parenty Phase" - a term covering the menopause for the mother and the midlife crisis for the father.

In her book she describes typical everyday situations and the potential for conflict between the generations and she gives tips on how to take the brunt off them: with humour and unfaltering honesty.
